2. The Predictable Guy
Women don’t like the Predictable Guy because they know exactly how he’ll react to everything. He follows formulas and never wants to do anything differently. For example, he’d never surprise a woman by spontaneously taking her out for the night.
Why he is so unappealing: Women look for a certain amount of unpredictability in a man — they want a free spirit. This is why some women seem to be drawn to the notorious “bad boy.” It’s not that they are drawn to his badness exactly, but rather to his unpredictability.
How to avoid being predictable, arrogant, boorish, and more…
What to do if you’re that guy: You don’t have to be “bad” or a completely free spirit to win her over. But try to mix things up — particularly at the beginning of a relationship. Call her and tell her you want to go to the countryside for the day, or for an impromptu meal. After she gets to know you, she won’t mind as much if you slip back into your routine a bit. But don’t forget to continue to surprise her once in a while — doing so will keep the relationship fresh.
