The 11 Types Of Single Men You'll Come Across Both Online And Offline


Sometimes it feels like there's no one out there to date. Know what I mean?

Of course you do. Every woman feels this way at one time or another.

In today's blog, I'm going to share the 11 types of men I found for you to date both online and offline.

I probably dated at least six of them on this list and the last one, #11 ended up being a keeper.

Now it's your turn, which of these 11 types is the right one for you?

Type #1 -- The Bad Boy

He's a favorite because he's gorgeous, charming and knows how to make you feel amazing.

But he's also a major player who will break your heart.

Fun to play with, but not good for long term relationships.

Type #2 -- The Needy Man

While you're in the emailing process, he's already thinking of you as his girlfriend calling you honey or my girl.

He wants to talk on the phone or constantly text. If you love a good project, he's perfect for you.

Type #3 -- The Motorcycle Dude

Lots of good men ride motorcycles like doctors, lawyers, and well-paid businessmen.

Don't knock him out yet for having this midlife hobby.

As long as he doesn't expect you to ride (unless you want to), he's got potential.

Type #4 -- Beware of the Ring on His Finger

This man rarely posts a picture.

He doesn't want his wife's single friends telling her that he's on a dating site.

You can really get hurt by this guy because no matter what he says about his marriage, he isn't leaving his wife or he would have already.

Type #5 -- The Long Distance Romantic

If you love fantasy, this is the perfect romantic relationship.

You spend hours on the phone sharing your deepest secrets.

Problem is the phone chemistry doesn't always match up in real life when you meet.

Yet, I have seen this type of relationship work if you live within a two-hour drive of each other.

It's a great match if you like weekend only relationships.

Type #6 -- What He Really Need's Is A Shrink Not a Date

He's looking for a therapist and you're it.

Steer clear.

Unless you're being paid money by the hour to listen to his woes, you're better off finding a man who's emotionally healthier.

Type #7 -- The Take Out Order Man

Some of the funniest profiles are written by men who think Online Dating is like going through the Wendy's drive-through.

They're looking for specific qualities in women like body type, hair color, or a precise type of job.

In the long run, you'll be a lot happier with a man who thinks you're great exactly how you are!

Type #8 -- The Scammer

Scary group because they can scam you out of thousands of dollars by quickly capturing your heart.

These men have amazing pictures and they know you will feel blessed that such a handsome guy chose you.

If a guy continually makes excuses for not being able to meet you, chances are he's a scammer. Let him go!

Type #9 -- Younger Men Online Looking for Cougars

Shocking at times but yes, there are younger men out there who are into older women.

It's a great boost for the ego.

Go for it if you want.

Just beware of men who are looking for a Sugar Mama to support them!

Type #10 -- The Older Man

These are 'Old School Gentlemen' who will treat you like a lady.

They can be a lot of fun.

Worth giving this one a chance.

Type #11 -- The "Quality Man"

He may not be the most handsome man online but he is the nicest and he will do anything for you.

He's the man who's interested in what you're doing and wants to make you happy.

"Quality Men" are online and they want nothing more than an opportunity to love you.

Have fun with this one!

He can bring you a lifetime of happiness and joy.
