What do you think? Is this an accurate synopsis or is it just good for shits and giggles – and do you know a lady that fits into any of these categories? Better yet, are you one of the 8 women?



Every man likes an articulate woman, a girl who can voice her opinion, sound intelligent and impress your friends with a philosophical debate on the downward spiral of modern politics. OK, maybe that’s pushing it a bit, but a woman with verbal confidence can be a hell of a turn-on. But let’s be realistic — while it’s always nice to date someone who is charismatic and well-versed, it’s something quite different to date a woman who beats the opinionated war drum. The Smart-Ass is one of the types of women to avoid.

Unfortunately, these types exist, and for those who haven’t had the privilege of strapping on your helmet and hunkering down for a verbal assault, you’re definitely not missing out. Everyone comes from different wombs, so why does she seem to get angry with you when you can’t agree? Some women simply like to test you to see how well you stand up for yourself; others just like to exert their own power. The Smart-Ass exposes your intellectual weaknesses and will subsequently cut you down because of it. This is a type to avoid at all costs, as she will make the rest of your evening miserable while she stomps on your heart with an egomaniacal boot.


It doesn’t take a genius to know that wooing a woman requires a trifocal effort of body, soul and spending power. As standard romantic procedures, you’re going to have to take her for dinner, buy her flowers, whisk her away to the mountains for the weekend, and show her that the world is your oyster and she’s the pearl. But if I can give a word of caution to my free-spending comrades out there (I’m guilty of this too), make damn sure she’s actually enjoying your company and not just your wallet. The Gold Digger is one of the types of women to avoid. If you start to notice that she’s expecting you to pay for everything but the kitchen sink, your credit card bill should be enough of a red flag to warrant an emergency landing.

Here’s some sound advice – if you approach a woman and the first words out of her mouth are “I’ll have a Vodka Seven,” chances are she’s probably out to score some freebies, so proceed with caution. If her friends show up and start ordering drinks as well, there’s a good chance they’ll all dissipate into the crowd once they’ve been served, leaving you with the tab. Avoid the Gold Digger type at all costs. Like the old proverb goes, you can’t buy happiness, and a woman who thinks otherwise isn’t worth your time.


First off, you cannot date a married woman or a woman who is involved with another man when you meet her. A married woman who is playing both sides of the fence is giving you a free and full preview of how she treats men and what she really thinks about commitment. She is showing you that she has no integrity. If you choose to pursue this woman anyway, you can’t be mad when it doesn’t work out or you end up getting played. When you sign on to deceive another, play games and sneak around you are, in essence, telling her that you have no expectation of truth, dignity or monogamy.


Women who live by this mantra are, again, giving you a full, free preview of what they think of men and how they will treat you one you’re on board. Speaking as a woman, most of the females that I know who live by such mantras are usually using them to get a man to kowtow and jump through hoops like a monkey at a side show in order to manipulate him into doing things for her.

You’re either apologizing for everything her last boyfriend did, acting as a band-aid for other mens wounds. They tell you repeatedly how a “man can’t do anything for them yet you’re paying for every (or any) date, buying her gifts, buying the drinks and maybe pay a few bills here and there.

You’re being used…with your permission of course and when it ends (and it will) you’re left broke, busted and depressed. Your best bet is to run when you hear a woman utter the above mantras. All you’re doing by staying is volunteering to be emotionally and verbally abused.


This woman seems great at the start because she’s very nice, accommodating and treats men well. But her inner insecurities don’t take long to surface. Pretty soon she’s calling you 10 times a day, asking to see “where the relationship is going,” or because she “just wants to hear your voice.” She needs constant reassurance that she’s attractive, and worries incessantly about her makeup, hair and the alignment of her clothes. She’s clingy, needy and compulsively agonizes that you’re going to leave her at any moment for “someone better.” This kind of thing can get really creepy really fast.


She says –
‘I am educated’
‘I do not cook, wash or clean – because I believe in equal rights’ ?
‘I am independent’
‘I do not need a man to fulfill me’
‘I will never be bare foot and pregnant’
‘I am gainfully employed and valued by my male colleagues’
‘Women are intimidated by me’ Blah blah blah.
What she doesn’t say is –
‘I am medicated’
You get what you ask for. Ambition has nothing to do with companionship – so get a grip. You did what you wanted to do and you should be glad (without having to say so).


This is a woman who was spoiled by her dad. This woman grew up having little or no responsibilities because everything that should have been her responsibility was taken care of by her dad. Responsible adults should make up their beds, do their own laundry, and clean their own room.

If you date a woman like this she will probably expect you to take on some of her responsibilities.


A conceited woman is an extremely confident woman who believes that she is better than everyone else. Some women are conceited because they are wealthy while other women are conceited because they are beautiful.

If you date a conceited woman she will never treat you as an equal, in her eyes she will always be better than you.

Different people make the world go round. When you are seeking a long term relationship with someone you should find someone who will appreciate you for the person you are. You should try to avoid someone who will speak to you in a condescending way, or someone who will try to impose their will upon you. It’s all about respect, you have to give respect in order to earn it.

    I strongly believe the same goes for men! That’s why I’m 31 and still single…and never went beyond engagement!

    There are no guarded virgins at your age. Women that are thirty and have never married are either unsightly, career-driven, or have been riding the cock carousel.

    This is literally one of the dumbest article written, unless this was suppose to be a joke
