Toxic Bachelors

Toxic Bachelors: Who Is the Worst Kind?

A Toxic Bachelor is a guy who won't commit to a woman or pretends to be something he's not.

The Player loves chasing women down and trying to win them with douchebag techniques he's learned from advice books like The Game. His goal? To make a woman fall for him, so he can move on to his next victim. The Smart Guy may woo you with his literary references, but he'll put you down in no time.

Yeah, they're damaged and have self-esteem and intimacy issues, but before we psychoanalyze them — we have to spot them and get the hell away. They come in all, even unexpected, guises. Below is but a preliminary list of Toxic Bachelors: Who is the worst kind?

Where is the The smooth talking, good looking player who turns out later to have anger issues and emotional issues? My ex of 3 years really, really messed me up. I let him go because I can't take the anger, insensitivity, and bipolar bursts but I miss him.

substance abuse issues guy :( i swear all those other 'quirks' or personalities can be changed (somehow) or at least they're a lot better IMO.. but if a guy has problems with substances especially illegal drugs, you really REALLY have to draw the line :( but overall, all these choices are all bad qualities that a girl shouldn't consider in a guy :)

Serial monogomists, for the same reasons as mamasitamali. When you meet them they seem to be perfect: good guys, willing to commit...what a catch, right? But then you realize they're just afraid of being alone, and you were just the girl that was there when he broke up with the ex. The worst part is that it usually takes a loong time before you figure this out.:/

Angry guy becomes the abusive guy. No, he's not a keeper.

Vengeful guys are the worst of the bunch, I think. Watch any Neil Labute film for an example.

Wandering eye guys. I can't stand it when guys in relationships chat up other girls at the bar, "just to prove to themselves that they still got it."

I choose angry...I dated someone who was well angry all the time, I couldn't even give him a back rub while he was playing video games because it made him so upset because it ruined his focus! Or the time we went golfing together it wasn't even fun I went home after 3 holes.

SERIAL MONOGAMISTS!!!! the other ones are SO easy to spot and unless you are very naive, you shouldn't get too caught up. the monogamists fall fast and hard but then down the line you realize there really isn't substance... do they just want a girl, or do they want YOU?

I say substance abuse (because it leads to other problems)... but then again, almost everyone I have ever met, besides me, has abused a substance over a long period of time... maybe thats why I'm always alone. . .

I picked Revenge Guy. Because I've been Revenge Girl, and I left a looooooot of destruction in my path.

Most angry guys don't act angry until you get to know them. They typically come off as assertive and nice.

The "smart guy who thinks he's smarter than you" is the worst. I hate guys like that. All they do is put you down and try to make you look dumb. Their idea of a conversation is a lecture telling you something that you OBVIOUSLY don't already know. And of course they never listen to a word you say. Grrrrr. :-P

Well...when you first want to start dating someone, you tend to play yourself up a little bit. That isn't being completely true to yourself or the other person, but it's natural and part of the game. When it comes to male-bashing or being a "toxic bachelor" -- I think it's BS. Truly, if the guy doesn't want to be with you, then he doesn't want to be with you. I have a hard time thinking people, especially men care enough to waste their time with you just to break your heart. They may seem like they did that, but in reality, I can bet in most cases, that wasn't it at all. Or perhaps women just go after guys who they want to be with, yet hasn't ever been able to commit to anyone in the past, and think she will change him. But, anyway, you can't judge someone and what they will or will not do to you based on whether or not he hates his mom. That doesn't make him bad if he does, and it doesn't mean he's a fruit if he loves his mom. You never know the situation completely, and it's unfair to judge someone based on something that shallow. And when it comes to smarts -- having an ego is not a bad thing. If you play yourself up to yourself you perform better. As for an "angry guy" -- why would you want to even talk to someone who seemed pissed all the time?
