It's a new year. Do yourself a favor and ditch bad habits—including your bad boys. We get it, it's hard to resist the dangerous, sexy, exciting allure of these guys, but they're nothing but trouble, trouble, trouble (right, T. Swift?) So take note of the signs and be wary of these fellas before it's too late.
1. Mr. "Too Cool To Exert Any Effort"
Do you feel like you’re chasing him rather than meeting halfway? Are you the one who's always calling him up, making plans, and going the extra mile to make it work while he just waits around? Guess what? This isn't going to change.
2. The Rebel Without A Cause
We get that some boys just want to look bad, but if they are actually really rotten in real life, why stick around? Nobody wants to be with a guy who picks on people just for fun or burns things down because he's bored. Don't waste your time dealing with that kind of immaturity.
3. The Player
Okay, this one is a no-brainer. If you already know he’s bad news to begin with, why even bother? Yes we are aware of the bad boy syndrome, but it’s not worth all the stress and tears. You don’t want to be just another hottie in his impressive list. Resist his charms and look the other way, because girl, you’re not gonna be the one to change him.
4. The Sexist
If your man ever says “Go make me a sandwich” or “Women belong in the kitchen” in a non-joking kind of way, dump that sucker.
5. The Emotionally-Unavailable Dude
He already warned you from the very beginning that he's not the relationship type, but you still went for it anyway. Fair enough. But if you've been together for a while and he's still not emotionally invested in you, you might be better off moving on without him. He may be a lot more damaged than you think.
