Dating in the year 2018 can be difficult. There's online dating and an abundance of dating tips out there that can drive a man insane, making him overthink and forget the simple things like, you know, just introducing himself and talking to the person he's interested in.
Aside from social media considerations, there's just not enough hours in the day to keep up with all of this dating advice. We spend a good portion of our lives at work or asleep, and, when two people don't have similar schedules, it makes it real challenging. And, on the other side, if you got too much time, well, that's never good either. For those guys who hold down a 9 to 5, these women seem to be the hardest types to date.
Nurses bring a lot to the table. They're smart, passionate and helpful. They have a lot of the characteristics most men would love in a partner. The drawback? Their schedules. Nurses who are in the early part of their career tend to have wild schedules, which include weekend work and night shifts. If you're lucky enough to get them locked down for a few hours after work, consider yourself lucky — but don't expect them to be too energetic after a long day at the hospital. Good luck pulling them away from their work, they carry that with them like a badge.
The Unmotivated, Lazy Type
If you've ever date a lady without ambition, you know exactly why this type of gal can be a real thorn in your side. Completely content with whatever she's got at the moment, or worse, she's just looking for someone to take care of her both financially and emotionally, this woman will be only cause you headaches. She may be kind, sweet, caring and an absolute dimepiece, but if you've ever had to come home and listen to someone whine about how tough their life is because the Internet in the apartment went out, you'll understand why to stay away.
It takes a strong-willed man to date a fitness gal. We're talking fitness models, CrossFit women, marathon runners. Of course, there's nothing wrong with exercise, getting fit or watching what you eat, but there's a line where you're just doing too much. For example, if we sit down at a steakhouse and the lady's scanning the salad list, it's time for the man to stop, re-evaluate and do less.
Faux Models Or "Dancers"
This one's pretty obvious, but we'd be remiss not to remind you... Actually, this one should go without saying. Just. Stay. Away.
"My Career Owns Me" Ladies
Now, this is one of those that can go both ways. We're talking lawyers, investment bankers, doctors, advertising account managers; those ladies who seem to have all their shit together. At first sight, you'd think these are the ladies you're looking for. Smart, successful, type A kind of people who check off a ton of boxes on the proverbial list you've always had in your mind. But, once you get to know them, you start to realize you'll always be second fiddle. These gals don't care for companionship, they care about success. That's their only mistress, guys like us are only as useful as a scratching post.
So, what's the moral of the story? To be blunt, we're all just destined to die alone. OK, we're only (partly) joking.
