Enough on women and our emotions. Let us talk about man for once!
Today, we bring to you the 5 types of man that women must date at least once in their lifetime. *v*
Mr. Nice Romantic Guy
He’ll show up with flowers, leave cards around your apartment and quote Keats on a whim. Think old-fashioned courtship where you’re being wooed instead of sitting by the phone wondering if he’ll call.
What he’ll teach you: This affectionate man will show you a softer side of our male counterparts, all the while raising your expectations of how you wish to be treated. After realizing that there are guys out there who understand the importance of a random note or kiss in the moonlight, you’ll be less likely to stay with someone who degrades or ignores you in the future.
The catch: Most of the time, these guys are in love with the idea of love. This means they will come on strong but lose momentum in the long haul as the reality of a relationship sets in (i.e. disagreements, uneventful days), but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t date him and enjoy the experience. Just keep a level head while he floats around you.
Mr. Big Shot
He dresses sharp, talks slick and has the perfectly coiffed looks of a man straight out of a lad mag.
What he’ll teach you: You’re in for a crash course in the finer way of life. Dinners will be four-star and the conversation will be witty. You’ll walk away from this relationship more sophisticated and well aware of your own inner vixen.
As the 007 of romance, he’s going in for the kill. He knows exactly what he’s doing and the effect it’s having on you — and every other girl around him. The odds of this guy slipping out of his suit and into a comfy relationship are low, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy the smooth ride around the town while it lasts.
Mr. Sexy Older Guy
He’s old enough to have settled into his skin and has been involved with enough women to know that you require much more than dinner and a few martinis to get into the mood. Best of all, he never makes you late for dinner because he’s playing Xbox.
What he’ll teach you: He has a lifetime of experience to share, which will likely keep you on your toes. No matter how long it lasts or how it ends, you’ll walk away worldlier — and will never settle for a measly five minutes of foreplay again.
The catch: Age is more than a number. If you are just starting to get comfortable in your skin and he’s shed his several times, there is a good chance you’ll have issues with long-term compatibility. Sure, he’s hot now, but how will you feel in 10 years? Give one another a thrill, then move onto someone you both can relate to.
Mr. Man’s Man
He carries your bags, will defend your honour and would rather swallow glass than shave his chest or take hot wax to his eyebrows.
What he’ll teach you: This rough rogue will have you relishing in your femininity like no other. Why? There is something about raw masculinity that brings out the damsel in all of us. Dating this bruiser will show you how fun it can be when he shows you who the man is. Dating him will do one of two things: make you squeal with delight or appreciate your ability and right to wear the pants sometimes.
The catch: You’re dying to be wined and dined, but he’s already made plans to meet you down at the pub. He’s also prone to affairs… with his favorite sports teams. Oh, and forget about asking him to hold your purse while you do anything — he wouldn’t dare.
Mr. Fun Social Guy
Whether he’s out with friends or meeting the family for brunch, one thing’s for certain: He’s going to be the life of the party.
What he’ll teach you: There is something very attractive about a man who’s always ready to have a good time. You’ll laugh a lot and learn how to go with the flow and let things slide. These types are often quite spontaneous, which means you should be ready for anything.
The catch: Most people are social because they like the company of others, but Fun Social Guys are social because they love to be the centre of attention — and they love the excitement of something new. This poses an issue for long-term loves because: A) Who wants to be an audience member 24/7, and B) Let’s face it: Relationships can get dull at times — what will he do then? Enjoy the roller-coaster ride, but don’t be afraid to walk away to more stable ground.
