5 Men To Date Before You Die (And 5 To Avoid!)

Posted on November 11th, 2009

Group of MenSome men will sweep you off your feet, and some will break your heart.  How do you tell the difference?  Here’s a short dating tips guide to 5 kinds of men you should date before you die, and 5 you should avoid at all costs!

The Do’s
The Hot Older Man: Some men – think George Clooney and Johnny Depp – just get better with age.  An older man has had time to learn everything that makes women tick – in and out of the bedroom!  His extra years will have taught him to be confidant and comfortable in his own skin, and you’re guaranteed to have fascinating conversations that will teach you to see life in new ways.

The Social Butterfly: Everyone likes to be the center of attention sometimes, but this man is always the life of the party.  Wherever you go, whoever you’re with, the two of you are sure to have a good time, lots of laughter, and a ton of good stories to tell your girlfriends later.

The James Bond: This man is so suave you’d think he stepped straight out of a novel or the latest Hollywood smash hit.  Always impeccably dressed and groomed, he’s a smooth talker and a big spender.  He’ll go to any length to make sure your time with him is a totally unforgettable fairy tale.

The “Real” Man: Fireman, cowboy, police officer…these are the men with a tough exterior and a soft inside.  When you’re with this type of guy, chivalry is far from dead.  He’ll let you act like the damsel in distress while he carries in the heavy grocery bags and mends the hole in your fence.

The Hopeless Romantic: You’ll feel like a princess when you’re dating this man.  He’ll send you flowers at work, write you love letters full of lines from Shakespearian sonnets, and serenade you by the fireside.  Enjoy being showered with affection, and never questioning whether you are wanted, needed, and loved.

The Don’ts
The Cheap Date: Date this guy, and you’ll never get a present, always go Dutch on meals, and probably end up paying his cell phone bill when it turns out he’s too broke to do it.  Is that really the kind of man you want to waste your time with?

The Married Man: This goes without saying, ladies – stay away from the married men.  If he can’t be faithful and honest with the woman he married, what makes you think he will be with you?

The Momma’s Boy: Does mom still do his laundry and make his bed?  Does he still live in her house?  Run.  This man is going to expect that the next important lady in his life (cough – you) waits on him hand and foot too.

The “Big”: Ever seen the Tom Hanks movie?  This guy is a child trapped in a man’s body.  He’ll ditch you for a night of beer and Xbox – ditch him first!

The Hypenate: The starving artist type…the waiter-actor, the poet-handyman, the retailer-musician.  They seem fun and romantic for a while, but once they start getting older and they’re still convinced they’re going to be the next big thing, the charm wears off fast!
