1. He's rude to anyone in the service industry
You can tell a lot about a person by the way they treat people who work in hospitality. If he's rude to people he thinks are 'below' him, he's nothing but an asshole, plain and simple.
2. He's hot... and he knows it
Confidence is good but cockiness dries our lady clams up faster than the outback during a drought.
3. He's mean to your pet
Nope. If you're mean to my dog I will bury you. Also, if he's mean to animals then he's probably a serial killer. Just saying.
4. All of his exes are 'crazy'
Heads up ladies: if all his exes are 'crazy', then odds are he's the crazy one. Blaming all your exes for whatever caused the relationship to end not only makes you look bitter AF, but it also tells us you'll be saying the same about us in a few months time. Pass.
5. He doesn't care about your needs in bed
Ugh, GTFO. Life is way too short for unenjoyable sex.
6. He only ever talks about himself
I've had way too many conversations with guys who either lack basic conversational skills or just #DGAF enough about me to ask me any questions about myself. Either way, only talking about yourself is a massive lady boner killer.
7. He's an idiot
Okay, I'm not saying you need to have the IQ of Einstein, but if you're wilfully ignorant or just plain dumb, you instantly go from a solid nine to about a two.
8. He checks out other women constantly
Dudes, at least have the presence of mind to not make it so damn obvious!
9. Hygiene? What's that?
Bad breath and smells like he hasn't touched a bar of soap in at least a week? I mean, come onnn.
10. He's always on his phone
If he's always on his phone when you're supposed to be making lovey eyes across the table at each other, what are you even doing with this jerk!
11. He doesn't give up his seat on public transport for elderly or pregnant women
Snap judgment: he'd be a terrible father, a crap husband and is already a shitty human being.
12. He complains all the time about everything
Dude, sometimes life is hard! And complaining can feel pretty good, I get that. But if all a man does is complain about how bad his day was and all the crappy jerks he had to deal with that day, he's probably the crappy jerk.
13. He always puts you down
Okay, first of all, if your man is only ever putting you down, what are you even doing with him!?? If a guy ever makes you feel less than the strong, amazing beautiful woman you ARE, no amount of flowers or dinners in the world can ever make up for it.
14. His dating profile is full of gym mirror selfies
Staying fit and keeping healthy are all good things BUT if your Tinder profile is full of gym shots and working out is the only thing you talk about, it makes us so bored we want to fall asleep.
15. Being rude to your family/friends
It's okay for us to complain about them but that right certainly doesn't extend to you.
16. He constantly talks about his ex
Because nothing says 'emotionally unavailable and definitely not ready to be dating' than a guy who can't stop talking about his ex.
17. He takes himself way too seriously
There's a reason all women say they want to date a guy with a sense of humour - its' one of the most attractive qualities a guy can have. When a guy can't trip over himself while walking and have a laugh about it or just takes himself too seriously in general, it's such a turn off.
18. He has no ambition
You don't need to want to be the Prime Minister or anything but have some ambition in life. A guy with a career rather than a job is far sexier.
19. He's not a feminist
If he doesn't believe men and women should have equal rights, then it's a no from me.
Emma is just your average book loving, tea drinking, story writing, narcissistic millennial on an eternal quest for the perfect t-shirt. Ever since she picked up her first copy of Dolly when she was twelve, she always knew she wanted to work in magazines. She would describe herself as a bit of a hopeless romantic with an obsession for true crime and horror and a love for red wine, whiskey or a stiff gin and tonic. When she's not binge watching Netflix or buying things she can't afford online, she spends her weekends trawling through bookstores and eating her way through Brisbane.
