When you’re single and loving yourself, it seems like the world is blooming with cute guys. Everywhere you turn, you find yourself in an enchanting conversation with a hilarious/charming/handsome man. That’s just what happens when your “light is on,” so to speak. Or rather, when you’re in a wonderful emotional and mental place, you attract just about everybody. And it’s hard to be selective when, well, you really don’t have to be. If you have the option of dating 100 men, even if you only date 60, you’re bound to date many of the wrong ones. So before you let your guard down, keep in mind these people you should never, ever date.
Somebody your sister dated
I don’t care how long ago it was, how over him your sister is, and how much both him and your sister have changed as people since the relationship, don’t do it. The moment they mention one memory about your sibling, you’ll be scarred for life—especially if you’ve already slept with the guy.
A superior at work
Just wait; one day, he’ll have to criticize you for your work, and then you’ll loathe him on a personal level. Just don’t muddy the waters of love with the drama of work.
Your mom’s best friend’s son
If and when it doesn’t work out, your poor mom and her friend will be at each other’s throats over whose baby hurt whose baby. And you’ll still have to see the guy at large family functions.
It all seems so convenient until you break up, and now the simple act of pulling into your parking spot causes you to sweat and panic.
Your friend’s brother
Under very few circumstances does this work out. But when it doesn’t, your ex will be in your best friend’s ear about what a sh*tty girlfriend you are, and you won’t be able to vent to your best friend about your recent ex because that’s her family.
