If you’re on the hunt for someone special, you might consider avoiding these types of girls to save yourself a lot of potential heartbreak along the way.
While pain, heartbreak, frustration, and loneliness can be inevitable in any relationship, you can minimalize these negative feelings by choosing the right person to be with. This will save you a lot of trouble, misery, and heartbreak in the long run. The general rule is to stay away from toxic people and rid yourself of anything that makes your relationship even more complicated than it already is.
Types of girls to avoid dating
Here, we cut to the chase and let our experiences be your teacher. Here’s a shortlist of the types of girls you should NEVER fall for. Behind the charming smiles, hot curves, bouncy hair, and sweet exterior may lie a personality that’s far from what you could have expected or even prepared for. Thus, be warned and avoid these types:
#1 The Material Girl. To her, your role in her life is to shower her with gifts as your way of loving her. After all, it’s all about the money and the objects and what you can give her. From the get-go, she’ll likely compliment your car and your watch, and she might even ask about your job and how much you make.
Her type seems to have a yardstick for the guys they date—and that’s your annual salary. She’ll be such a sweetie if you buy her a necklace, but never ever come to her empty-handed, because she’ll be the coldest witch you’ll ever know. [Read: 11 signs to know if you’re being used for sex or money]
#2 The Barbie Doll. She’s pretty, she’s charming, and she has a great body. Every inch of her is perfect—well, except for her low IQ. While she may not have retained anything taught to her in school, she seems to have a PhD in bed. Plus, she makes guys look at you in envy when you two go out together.
However, just hope she doesn’t open her mouth to speak her mind because that’s when it will all go downhill. These types of girls may be great to be with temporarily, but you won’t be able to bring her home to meet Mom, unless you want to witness a disaster.

#3 The All-About-Me Woman. She thinks the world revolves around her, so she feels entitled to everything, even your love. You may admire her confidence and strong will, but underneath this exterior is a selfishness and self-centeredness that makes her insufferable. Be in a relationship with her, and you’ll find yourself constantly drained as you try to do what it takes to keep her happy, while she languidly takes what you can give without any reciprocity.

#4 Ms. Cripplingly Insecure. Men and women can both be achingly insecure, but this type of girl takes it to a whole new level. She’ll talk negatively about herself *or worse, about other people* just so she’ll feel good about her flaws. She’ll constantly fish for compliments and affirmations, completely believing that these will validate her self-worth.
#5 The Drama Queen. She’s the type who believes with all her heart that the world is out to get her. But don’t be fooled. Drama doesn’t just follow her—she has a way of whipping it up all by herself everywhere she goes. It’s like everyone and everything is against her, so you’ll hear nothing but how she’s the victim of everything her mind can conjure. The problem with her is that she’s incapable of owning up to her faults and taking accountability for her own actions. Soon enough, this blame game will seep into your relationship, making it all too toxic. [Read: 10 ways to handle your girlfriend’s dramatic tantrums]
#6 The Nitpicker Extraordinaire. She can be considered a perfectionist who prides in keeping her world pristinely spic and span, and expects other people to be the same… or else. That, or she just has something to say about any fault she finds in other people. She’ll crinkle her nose and raise her eyebrow at everything she sees in other people, never failing to miss a fault, but also never seeing the good side of things.
#7 Queen-dependence. She has a handful of good, endearing qualities. For a time, you might even consider taking her to meet your parents. She’s the submissive type. In fact, so much so that she can’t make up her mind on her own. For a while, you’ll feel good because that puts you in a position where you can really feel like the man in the relationship. That is, until you realize that she depends on you for everything. Once you realize that she can’t live her life without you, you’ll quickly see that that kind of burden gets old really fast.
#8 The Desperate Chick. She’ll be needy, controlling, manipulative, and very talented in turning on the waterworks just to get you to do what she wants. She is motivated by a deep desperation to be with anyone, no matter who it is, all for the sake of just having someone. Hapless and desperate, she might follow you around for some crumbs of your attention, and if you don’t give her what she wants, she might threaten to hurt you or herself. This is definitely not the kind of added stress you want your relationship to foster. [Read: 18 critical signs of an unhealthy relationship]
#9 The Chatterbox. She’s nice, friendly, and great to talk to. However, as time goes by, you’ll notice that her conversational skills aren’t learned, they’re innate. Pretty soon, you’ll see that her ability to talk is awfully, insufferably, non-stop.
She’ll talk about herself, about her friends, her work, how her day went, about the barista that served her coffee that morning, and so on. Soon, you’ll learn just how much she LOVES to talk, and not just about herself, but about other people, too. Eventually, she’ll get herself *and you* into trouble because she just can’t keep her trap shut.
#10 The Playa. Charming and seductive, she’ll say and do everything that will make you fall under her spell in a split second. The problem is that she also plays the same game with other guys, even in your presence. She toys with your emotions, only vaguely committing to anything more than a casual relationship because her sights are still set on other guys. While this girl may be great for flings and one-night stands, you’d better steer clear if you’re looking for a more serious relationship. [Read: 18 sure signs the girl you like is just using you!]
#11 Ms. Jekyll-and-Hyde. You saw her, and it was love at first sight. She’s got everything you’ve ever wanted in a girl, and so much more. However, things take a different turn after a while. On the outside, she’s really great, but behind the curtains is a totally different person.
One way or another, you’ll begin to see her other half—the mean, manipulative, calculating, deceitful, and two-faced side. Sure, she’ll smile at your friends, but she’ll say the worst things about them behind their backs. This makes you wonder just what she says and does behind your back, too!
While you may come across many types of girls along the dating road, life is too short to put up with people who make your life hard, miserable, or even unbearable. Just remember that a great relationship allows both partners room to grow and thrive, while also continuing to grow together as a couple.
