5 Types Of People Not To Fall In Love With

11:05 PM

As if on a conveyor belt, there will be a never ending supply of idiots and jerks that come and go in your life. Whether you stop the belt to dance with any one of them is up to you.
-Dan Pearce



How many times have we given our all and not get anything in return? How many times have we fallen in love with the wrong person?

We know they're not good for us, but we can't avoid them. Or we choose not to listen to that inner voice and the concerned voices around us.

Then we get hurt or wonder what we did wrong when we knew the answer all along:
We fell in love with the wrong person. It's as simple as that.

So the next time cupid comes along and aims his arrow at you, duck. Or at least delay it until you're sure. Until you're sure that he's not aiming for the 5 types of people not to fall in love with.

 



5 Types Of People Not To Fall In Love With



Impatient person

They will not wait for you. They will not tolerate the pressure that distance or time or a little difficulty along the way would bring. They won't wait for things to be okay. Don't fall in love with an impatient person. They won't stay.
 



All-words-no-action type

A dreamer who stays stuck in his dreams and illusions and never want to face reality. A person who lives in his world and forgets where he really is. Don't fall in love with a dreamer who doesn't act. You'll never be able to bring him out of his own world.
 



Someone who doesn't listen

Listening is the most basic sign and highest form of respect. If your opinion doesn't matter to him, so does all of you. You are relevant. What you think is important. If he can't see that, being with him is pointless.



Too dependent on you

It does not have to be financial. If he takes too much of your time, drains you, depends on you to make him feel better or guide him in every step he takes, don't let yourself fall. You'll end up empty. He'll suck you dry.




Unbeliever

He'll always doubt, he'll always have something to complain about. Don't fall in love with the unbeliever. He'll never see the light no matter how much you try to point it to him.

And it's not true that he doesn't have a god. He is his own god.





Don't just fall. I know the feeling is exhilarating, but is it really worth the pain and the mess you'll have to deal with afterwards?

  1. Its so hard to fall in love with anyone these days. We are so shielded with our insecurities, our feelings of doubt and being afraid to get hurt.

  4. I thought I had fallen in love with the good boy... only to find out that wasn't true... he still pretends to be the good boy... which is what he wants to be thought of... they are the worst type... :-(

  5. Hello Lux, How true these 5 types are. A great summary. The much too dependent one is the most common I see among people I know. I believe that a couple needs to have personal space too. Giving personal space is a form of respect.

  19. I agree with you Lux. It's just so so hard to find someone who's genuinely into you for you, you know? It's like they don't even exist anymore, you know? It's just so so sad though. Haiz..! I've been with someone who was overly too dependent and impatient. Worst experience ever!!!

  22. Fantastic tips, I agree. When we know our worth, we won't settle for anything less than the best. Appreciate yourself and you won't let others under-appreciate you!! I hope you have a great day doll xx

  23. I'm so glad I've found the perfect guy. And so early in my life, too.

  24. Very good and useful points! I can't agree more with "if you don't see your worth you'll always choose people that don't see it either" and "we accept the love we think we deserve" - so powerful. :) Really great post.

  42. Taylor Swift's song "Blank Space" summed up how it was for me, pretty much every time (except the last--my husband!). It all starts out beautiful but it goes horribly wrong at some point. If I could go back and tell myself anything, it would be "Don't EVER sacrifice your dignity for anyone. If they don't want to be with you, just walk." It never ended well when they started acting all wonky on me! Never. When someone's into you, he shows it every day (well, pretty much). When someone isn't into you, it's just all excuses.

  43. We all do every now and then fall to the wrong type of guy. I wish everyone luck to find the Prince Charming that treating you as a princes. I've found one myself over ten years. I can tell you that how easy life it is when you with the right gentleman. Oxoxox.

  45. Your points were well taken. The MOST important one was Not to fall in love with an Unbeliever. Make certain they have a firm foundation on Jesus Christ and they are not just trying to fool you into thinking they are born again. Pray and ask God, is this really the one?

  47. I could not be with someone who doesn't listen. It just shows such a lack of respect. I consider myself to be a great listener which is maybe why it bothers me so much when it's not reciprocated. That one applies to friendships too!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I couldn't agree more with avoiding someone who is too dependent on you. Independence is sexy! But I'm hiding this post from my hubby because I'm so impatient :(

  50. I agree wholeheartedly, Lux....and I will add one more. Don't fall in love with someone who is abusive to animals. Anyone who hurts animals for no reason won't hesitate to hurt people.

  54. Could have used this a handful of years ago. However, falling in love is ok as long as you realize that things have a natural end and move on... there's always something or someone else just around the corner.

  55. I can't stand with the guys who have really high self-esteem

  66. the no action part also goes for not showing love through actions but only in words.

  67. My first time here. I like what you're doing. Kudos!

  68. Great tips! First love yourself and then these drips don't have a chance. If they adore their truck and beer more than you then they need to be kicked to the curb:) So that pink dress from an earlier post-really pretty

  86. I dont know what to say.. I totally agree to the points but why do we alays fall for the wrong people..why do we seek attention of those who dont even care.. They dont see the efforts at all.. And because of this we dont accept the right people in our lives either..

    ReplyDelete
  87. This is wonderful encouragement for so many. I always try to tell women, especially family and friends that we must listen to God's voice inside of us as it will not misguide us.

    Many of us get into bad situations because of the choices we've made because of physical desires.

    This has blessed me and I have received it as life lessons. Thank God I made a great choice with my hubby..

    Thanks Beautiful Soul
