Remember: if your relationship is missing the ‘landmarks’ – commitment, consistency, progression, balance, and intimacy – you’re dealing with unavailability issues.
Eric and I get flooded with questions from readers asking: “Is he serious about me? ” “He says he cares but he’s not acting like it.” This game of he loves me, he loves me not is exhausting and can ravage your self-esteem.Think about how much time, energy, and heartache you would save if you could determine if he’s the kind of guy who will commit right off the bat.If you’re the type that’s been reluctant to pigeonhole them into another category or reluctant to admit they’re unavailable, this is your relationship.Where there’s excuses there’s denial and there’s an unavailable relationship.Abusive Relationships – Full of manipulation, there’s a presence of emotional, physical, and/or verbal abuse with use of excessive force and control.
Secret Relationships – This relationship is on the down low for whatever reason but often includes issues with race, religion, and family.
And with that, I bring you the five types of guys to avoid dating, and tips on what to do if you’re already dating one of the types.
TYPE 1: The guy who gets too intimate too soon When a guy is over eager it can mean a few things, none of them good.
‘Casual’ Relationships – Casual arrangements including Friends With Benefits and booty calls, as well as those who don’t want anything ‘heavy’ and like to keep it ambiguous and unlabelled.
Think of these ‘relationsh*ts’ as someone getting all the fringe benefits without the commitment, intimacy or responsibility.
Rehabing and Remodelling Relationships – This is excessive baggage particularly in the form of problems including addiction which you try to fix, heal, and help, and it also includes relationships where even if they don’t have any major problems, there’s a lot of control and demands for change.
