10 types of girls every guy dates before finding the one.

I know most of our fellow brothers will be happy about this post, since I did the "10 Guys" post last week, which was mostly for the ladies. Well guys this one is for you... ladies, you can also read through to find out what type of girl are you. 

1. DADDY's Girl 




This girl may be 25 or 30 years old, she still spends most of her free time with daddy. Not only does daddy play Minister of Finance, but he's also the first guy she calls when her car breaks down, her boss yells at her or even when she gets an extra ticket for a concert. Hol'up... isn't that supposed to be your role? 

2. The PARTY girl



This girl always knows where the party is. Not only that, but she has friends wherever you go, and they all have funny stories about that time she got wasted and made out with other people's boyfriends. Then, what do you know, you find her in a closet doing the same thing when she was supposed to be in a relationship with you. You try to dump her but she's too busy making out with that random guy to listen. 

Kwaaaaaaaa this is so me! 

3.  The STRAIGHT A student. 



This girl is super smart and it would be great to talk to her... if she ever had time to talk. She is involved in every kind of campus project / activities, whether it be for first years or post graduates, she's there. Oh, and most of all, she's more committed to her study group than she is to you. 

4. Miss JEALOUSY



So what did you really mean when you said "nice shirt" to that girl? Were you looking at her boobs? Are her boobs better than mine? Let me check your phone, did you take her numbers? Then you end things by telling her that you have a horrible terminal disease because you're scared of the repercussions lol.

5. GOSSIP girl



This girl can talk for daysss! She talks about her friends, her friend's friend, her friend's boyfriend and that guy's cousin. All of her stories seem to be about someone in a bad situation that she can pretend to empathize with while she secretly acts better than them. You break up with her after fantasizing about Miss JEALOUSY, who at least focused all her attention on you. 

6. Your mom's HOPEFUL DAUGHTER-IN-LAW



This girl and your mom get along like custard and jelly. She has your mom dropping hints about how it's time to settle down and she on the other hand is always talking about how awesome your mom is. But to be honest, your mom has more chemistry with this girl than you do. 

7. The ANXIETY case



This girl is worried and nervous about e-very-thing. When you go clubbing, she worries about her drink being spiked. When you're out ice-skating, she worries about breaking a leg. When you want to go on vacation, she is nervous about flying. So you book her in with a therapist or Mam Angie and say "Hasta la vista" baybay! 

8. The DRAMA QUEEN 



This girl is exciting and it's never boring to be around her. But soon you realize that it's exhausting to ride on her emotional roller coaster every day. Then you start missing the anxiety case, at least she was consistent. 

9. The TREND-SETTER



You are not sure if what she's wearing is a shirt or a dress, not sure what's happening with her hair or make-up, but you know whatever it is, it's right on trend. It's all fun and games until she starts throwing out some of your favourite clothes in an attempt to make you more edgier. So, you have to say goodbye. 

10. The BEAUTY QUEEN




This girl is so hot that you don't even believe that you're dating her. You feel like she's way out of your league. Your friends are envious and guy's heads turn when she walks into the room. It's pretty cool until you realize you don't have much to talk about since you have nothing in common. While you're in the middle of breaking up with her a guy in a BMW passes by and asks her out on a date. 

Fellas...which of these girls have you dated? And ladies, which one of these girls are you? Drop me a comment on the box below.

10 Types of Guys Almost Every Woman Dates Before Finding "The One"

I'm not sure if I believe in this idea of finding "the one" but I really enjoyed this article that I found HERE talking about the different types of guys women should / would date before settling with ''The One''. So, as I was reading, I realized that shit, I've dated quite a few guys on this list lol - so, here it goes ladies, some of these men will sound familiar. 

1. The HOT guy


Super attractive, women's heads turn when you walk into a club / party with him and it makes your feel like the baddest B in the building when that happens. Until you overhear people asking how did he end up with her lol, then you quickly move on. Also, he focuses on himself too much. 

Yeah, I've been there, done that. The one I dated made me feel like taking my panties off every time I saw him lol.  

2. The COOL guy 


This guy has heard of bands, clubs, booze and been to countries you've never been to. He knows everything that's on trend and you know by what he's wearing right now what guys will be wearing next year. To be honest it's a little too exhausting to be dating him, I mean you have to buy a whole new wardrobe and keep up with the latest trends. 

Luckily for me, I've never been attracted to these kind of guys. But, I'm not saying I don't look lol. 

3. The AMBITIOUS guy


Your mom loves this one. He has an internship or is working at some big corporate company or he's in academics working towards his PhD at the age of 26... I mean, you barely even see him. 

I think this is my situation at the moment lol, but I'm loving it. More free time on my hands lol. 

4. The BRILLIANT guy


This guy reads 3 books a day and still has time to analyze the latest situation in politics. He has time for both leisure and work because his leisure is reading books. So, you end up thinking about the ''HOT Guy'' again then you leave. 

I'm glad I haven't even met a BRILLIANT guy lol. 

5. The guy WHO ALWAYS LIKED YOU 


This is the guy who's had a crush on you since Primary School, just like the Chuck and Blaire situation on Gossip Girl. Then later you find out that guy is obsessed with you that time you're still lukewarm, so you let him down gently and move on. 

Been there, done that and it was painful looking at his pretty face and telling him thee famous words: ''It's not you it's me''. But, we're cool now, he's moved on, has a baby and I heard some talks of him getting married, I'm really happy for him. 

6. The PARTY Guy 


You met this guy at a party, then you met him again at another party and another party almost every time you decide to go out, you'll definitely bump into this guy. Then you start thinking (because we ladies, are gullible creatures) maybe we're meant to be together - then you realize than nah, it's not fate he just goes out a lot! He's also always wasted then you start missing the brilliant guy lol. 

I think I have a guy that I know I'm going to be seeing, by this I mean making out with at the club, party or house party I decide to attend lol. You know, it's like when your friends host a party and you ask '' Is X gonna be there?'' lol!

7. The PERFECT ON PAPER guy


Your friends are excited about this one too. You find him online, or someone sets you up, he works for the best company is good looking and has a pocket full of dough lol but you don't feel the spark and then let him down easily. Then your friends get into a mild panic because they were crazy about the guy. 

Nah, not me. None of my friends have set me up with a guy come think of it. *Feeling let down*. 

8. The guy in a BAND or CELEB


This guys seems really awesome, especially when writes a song about you or mentions you in an interview on TV... but then you realize that his primary job is playing a guitar at his friend's garage or if he's a celeb, you start asking your self ''what does he really do besides appearing on TV''? So, you end up missing the AMBITIOUS guy and eventually leave. 

This ish is true, I recently dated a guy I've know from back in high school and in the early stages  of the relationship I realized that hol'up this Hip-Hop crew thing that he's a part of is not a side gig... it's his ONLY gig, then I left lol. 

9. The OLDER guy


It's refreshing to be with a guy what restaurants are good, a guy you can have a proper conversation with and talk about real stuff. This guy is also a great kisser (because he's been around lol) and very smart. But then, he sometimes gets too serious and you end up feeling like you're dating your dad... so you start avoiding him till he moves on. 

Been there, done that but only for the money. Yes, I did it for the money, now don't judge me!. 

10. The ONE

I'm just going to leave this here - since I've mentioned in the beginning of this post that I don't believe in ''the one''. 

You can drop me a comment below and let me know if you disagree or if you believe in ''the one'' and why.
