Warning Signs of a Bad Boyfriend

Today, our Orange County matchmakers are going to reveal the warning signs of a bad boyfriend. If you notice any of these behaviors in your guy, cut him loose!

  1. He forgets important dates.

No one should have to remind someone of their boyfriend or girlfriend’s birthday.

We often hear people joke around about guys not remembering their 10-year anniversaries. But that’s usually in movies, not something that we should be doing in real life.

We need our boyfriends to remember these important dates. After all, they mean something to us and should mean something to them. It would make us feel like they didn’t care enough about us to put in the effort to remember those important dates. He’s never going to be who we want him to be when this is how he treats important dates in the relationship.

  1. He doesn’t want to do things with you.

He’s never going to be a great boyfriend if he always says no when we invite him to do something together. This could be something as simple and casual as grabbing coffee for lunch or going to see a movie.

He should know that these things matter a lot us, and he should be saying yes unless he has something important going on in his life.

When he’s always turning down plans with us, we have to wonder what’s going on in his life that he’s not interested in hanging out with us.

  1. He won’t talk about the relationship.

Not everyone is comfortable talking about their deep feelings and emotions. That being said, we would all agree that when we get into a relationship, you have to learn how to be vulnerable and open up to your partner.

You’ll have to have serious talks with each other all the time.

We should never settle for a boyfriend who waits until you bring something up and won’t ever be the first person to bring up a serious topic. He never wants to talk about the future of the relationship or how committed you should be. We might not notice this during the early stages of the relationship, but once we realize that this is how he acts, we’re not going to be happy in the long run.

  1. He complains about the relationship to other people.

If we’ve heard a friend or sibling complain about their partner, we’ve probably wanted to ask why they were even together in the first place. It can be confusing to imagine staying with someone when you don’t have anything nice to say about them.

Our boyfriend will never be a great boyfriend for us when he complains about the relationship to other people. If your boyfriend is always complaining about the relationship, he’s a bad boyfriend. Not only does it show that he is annoyed in the relationship but also that he doesn’t respect your privacy. There are just some things – like relationship issues – that need to be kept private, between the two of you.

  1. He lies to you.

Is there really anything – ANYTHING – worse than a liar? Well, besides a cheater? But hear us out. Liars often turn out to be cheaters. After all, if they get away with their little lies, their push their limits and extend lies about bigger things. And when they get away with that, they might push the envelop to the fullest extent and cheat.

But even if it doesn’t turn into cheating, it’s never okay to lie to your partner. It’s a sign of disrespect. A relationship is about openness and honesty. It’s about trusting and accepting each other, even the difficult things. So if your partner is lying to you, it’s time you reevaluate the relationship. Do you really want to live the rest of your life questioning everything he tells you?

If after reading this dating blog you realize that your guy is a bad boyfriend, you know what you need to do. It’s time to kick him to the curb. Why waste your time with someone who is only going to break your heart down the road?
