There's a reason you have such terrible taste in men.
Do you have terrible taste in men? Maybe you have had only the occasional lapse in judgment where men are concerned or perhaps you’re a serial dater with losers, creeps, and womanizers.
It’s OK — at one time or another, we all have been interested in someone that made our friends seriously question our choices. Sometimes, the heart wants what the heart wants, no matter how much the brain may be screaming at it to run away.
There’s something appealing about being with someone completely inappropriate, someone that you know your parents and friends object to; if there wasn’t, then bad boys wouldn’t be considered so hot.
There are times when you just want to experiment and be with someone you normally wouldn’t date. Dating against type can be very healthy and can help you narrow down what you absolutely don’t want in a partner, but constantly choosing the wrong guy over and over again isn't good.
It’s a problem when the person you’re dating is truly bad for you and you’re too blind to see it. And when someone tries to open your eyes, you get offended, leading to conflicts and hurt feelings.
Often, when we’re involved with someone that isn’t worthy of our love, it’s because we believe that we can fix them. The problem with that is that nobody wants to be fixed by someone other than themselves, and they may not even think of themselves as broken. You can cause someone a lot of pain and hurt by making them your project.
Bad taste is subjective. You may think that the guy you’re dating is fantastic while your friends think he’s bad for you. There are times that we can see something in someone that isn’t obvious to anybody else and it doesn’t matter if they don’t approve, especially if you feel like that person is someone you want to spend time with.
It can be helpful to know why we continually fall for the wrong men. Here’s why you have such bad taste in men, based on your zodiac sign.
You love guys that you have to chase and who are hard to figure out. You get so caught up in the game that you don't bother to consider if they're really the guy for you. You're so in the moment that you never consider if he's even compatible with you. Luckily, you have no problem dumping him and finding a quick replacement.
You'll meet some guy, decide he's your dream man, and by the time you realize he's not all that, you've already committed yourself. No matter how terribly he treats you or how much of an ass he is, you'll try to make it work. Sometimes you need to cut your losses and move on, but with your stubborn streak that's not easy to do.
You say you don't want anything serious and then get annoyed when that's exactly what you get. Slow down and really think about if the guy is worth your time and energy. You tend to have commitment issues, but at some point, you're going to want something more fulfilling.
You get attached before the guy has even been vetted, so it's no surprise that sometimes you find yourself stuck with someone who is decidedly not for you. When you start to fear that the relationship is not working, you'll hang on even tighter. When you get extra needy, the only kind of guys that will respond well to this are men who are too controlling.
Let's face it: you like to shine and be the center of attention which makes you a target for a charming womanizer. They know what to say and how to charm you, but they're not interested in having a real relationship; they just want to get what they can from you and move on to their next victim.
You believe you have very high standards, but the truth is you can be easily seduced by someone who looks good but has nothing inside. Try not to be so superficial because there's no such thing as perfection. If all somebody has to offer you is an amazing body, you'd be surprised at how quickly you'd get bored.
You underestimate your own worth, so that when a guy asks you out, you almost always say yes. And then because you're too nice and don't want to hurt them, you try to find something about them that is attractive and appealing. Stop being so grateful and realize that you're a catch and that anybody would be lucky to have you. You want to be liked so badly that it clouds your decision-making abilities.
You think that if you find some guy who matches your level of intensity that you're a match, but that's not the case. Just because someone is your equal in terms of energy doesn't mean they aren't a jerk. Is there a place somewhere deep inside that makes you believe that you don't deserve to be loved?
You're so open to new people that you aren't good at reading all the warning signs that seem obvious to everyone else. You want to believe that everybody is great and wonderful, but sadly that's not the case. There are some men that will never turn into a prince.
It's funny that someone who is so dependable and makes such good decisions often falls for the worst guys. Is it that you're so busy that you just don't take the time necessary to really get to know someone or you just fall for the most available guy? Start using all your admirable skills on finding love since your greatest desire is to have a stable life and family.
You love guys who aren't like anybody else, but sometimes the ones you fall for are unique in weird and freakish ways. Some normal qualities like stability, dependability, and relaxed are good characteristics to have in a partner. Don't discount somebody because they aren't cutting edge; get to know them before you toss them aside.
You're very giving and will do anything for anyone, so it's not surprising that you often get involved with men who don't give you the respect you deserve and walk all over you. You fantasize about how you want them to be but when the fantasy doesn't match up to the reality, instead of letting them go, you try even harder to make it work. Stand up for yourself and consider your needs when it comes to finding love.
