Most women assume that I am referring simply to a man who is violent or abusive. Naturally, avoiding those types of men is a given. However, when I refer to a man with a temper, what I am specifically referring to is a man who overreacts to a situation when he is angry. By “overreacting” I am not necessarily implying that he is physically violent or verbally abusive. Although again, behaving in either of these ways would be inappropriate and inexcusable.
However, I am referring to other ways in which a man may overreact to a situation. For instance, if a man ignores you for a week because you were 10 minutes late for your date, that is an overreaction. If a man yells at you for disagreeing with him, that is an overreaction.

Such a man may be attractive when he's in a good mood, but his dark side will rob a woman of her self-esteem and beauty the deeper she is involved with him. If you are concerned and think you may be in a relationship like this, please be cautious and remember to always put yourself first.
