They say summer is when we fall in love the most – in fact there’s an abundance of songs out there surrounded by summer love. I’ll be one to admit that I’ve been feeling the early love bug’s bite, so I couldn’t help but reflect on all the interesting characters I’ve dated in the past. Regardless of the hits or misses they were all unforgettable experiences. Perhaps you can relate.
1. The one with a girl best friend
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve never had a problem with any of my boyfriends having a girl pal, but hooking up with them isn’t apart of the deal. I think it’s always good to keep an open-mind but if these two already had a history of dating on and off then you need to keep your guard up. If you’re feeling more like the third wheel than his girlfriend, this is obviously not the type of relationship for you.
2. The insecure heartbreaker
This is the type of guy that is too busy worrying about what others think about you two together. Behind closed doors you’re chemistry is amazing, but when his friend’s are present your boyfriend is suddenly not the same guy you know. If he’s more of a follower than a leader and doesn’t think too much for himself, this is a problem on it’s own. If gets to a point where he’s telling you how you should dress or act around his friends it’s time to bounce.
3. The one good on paper, but you’re just not that into
He’s the guy you bring home to your family and everyone loves him to pieces. Your mother might even love him more than you ever really think about him in a day, which doesn’t say much. Sure, he’s smart, funny, goal-oriented, and comes from a wonderful family as well, but something just isn’t sitting right with this one. And when you finally do decide to break it off and tell your family it’s almost as if everyone just attended a funeral.
4. The one who tries to change you
There’s nothing wrong with change, and it certainly happens in every relationship when you start to adapt and learn new things from one another. As we all know, relationships aren’t always picturesque. There’s going to be some differences between you and your beau, but those differences are what you love about each other as well. Since we all grew up with different cultures and values – acceptance is key. Unfortunately, I’ve dated the not so accepting kind.
5. The hottie with the body
Don’t mind my explicit mannerism here when I say a lot of us have had that relationship where you know it’s not going anywhere far, but you find it hard to breakup when the only chemistry you have is in the bedroom. This guy is super hot, and sad enough the only thing you’re concerned about is not being able to find someone as skilled as him.
6. The love at first sight
At least for women, this type of sighting happens on very rare occasions. When it does hit – it hits hard. You may fall so deep to the point where a love song plays in your head while you’re thinking about
your future husband this guy. The future looks bright and you fantasize about everything from your first kiss, first vacation getaway, your wedding, and even start imagining how your kids might look like – alright, let’s not get carried away!
7. The guy who acts like your dad
If having one father wasn’t already enough, you find yourself being taken care by your boyfriend. He asks you to call him when you’re coming home from a night out with your friends and if it’s late he’s more than willing to pick you up. Yes, it’s a super sweet gesture, but when he starts calling every hour to see how you’re doing then shows up unexpectedly in track pants, his class of ’05 university hoodie, and a baseball cap things can’t get any weirder than that.
8. The too good to be true
Everything is perfect, a bit too perfect. You have an amazing connection, share a lot of the same interests, are extremely attracted to each other, and can talk hours on end without running out of anything to say that you may even end up finishing each other’s sentences. You might have even been crazy enough to try and find something wrong just because you find it suspicious how well you both connect. Well, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” .
Which of these types have you encountered in your dating life?
