#6 He indirectly disses you.
Because dissing you directly comes with consequences. You know those guys who sound like they are complimenting you but you are pretty sure you feel insulted anyway. Like for example, he might tell you your dress hides your love handles really well or that your haircut hides your age efficiently. Well, no. That’s called negging and yes, it is a really insensitive thing to subject on anyone.
And then there is the one who tries to prove that you are dumb. Everything you do is wrong in some way, uncultured or ‘a very common misconception that most people make’. You could be the blazing inventor of the toaster (yeah, roll with me for a sec), but he would still tell you the way you make or prefer your toasts is the ‘wrong’ way and he will go on to explain why exactly you are so dumb to have this preference and how blessed you are that you finally have the toast-genius to tell you, the toaster-inventor, how it is actually done.
#7 You are either babysitting …
You know, in case, he goes full meltdown and you are left running an impromptu emotional ER facility? I have only heard stories of this happening. (Not that I am one of those introverts who doesn’t go out much and gets all her stories from her incredibly juicy sources.)
#8 …Or wish that you were actually babysitting instead.
Because that would have let you teach the next generation of males to keep their private parts to themselves on their first dates. This is another of those species that we all have encountered — even if we weren’t necessarily on a date with them. He will unsolicitedly talk about his dick, the numerous sexual escapades ‘he and mini-he’ have had and how many women he has been with. Well, we know he is trying to impress, but does he really think we want to get on this list of people he has banged that he apparently goes around telling anyone who is unfortunate enough to have been stuck in a conversation with him?
The (Not So) Expert conclusion to this?
Guys are not divided into such clean halves — totally nervous or totally arrogant. There are seasoned candidates that hide their flaws well, just like there are genuinely nice guys who are at ease and just out to have a good time. In any case, you have to practice Constant Vigilance and decide for yourself smartly who is faking it and take your time in judging a guy for yourself. After all, you know yourself the best.
