10 Reasons he's not your Mr. Right

SheKnows.com helps empower women through articles and discussion related to women's issues including beauty, relationships and parenting.

Date-worthy or dump-worthy?

He might be adorable to look at and step up from your last relationship but lets face it there's more to relationships then rebounds and physical chemistry. Here are some signs he may not be the one for the long haul, even if he is fun for now.

 

1. He'd rather be with the guys.

There's nothing wrong giving your man a night with the guys but when he keeps cancelling your dinner date to play xbox then there's something to reconsider.

 

2. He calls other women first to share good news.

If his mom, boss and former math teacher are on speed dial but you're not, this is a billboard-sized sign. If you're not ranking by now, there is a good chance you never will.  

 

3. He blows off important dates.

Don't get too worked up if your guy doesn't see the importance of your five-month anniversary; no one's perfect. A significant date (like your birthday), however, should be a no brainer.

 

4. You don't get an invite.

If you're rarely his date to the big events, like a cousin's wedding or an awards banquet where he's being honored, he's not taking the relationship very seriously.

 

5. He mentions the ex, and more than once.

Talking about past relationships is a unavoidable when creating a relationship with someone but when she comes up in most conversations, there's a sign that he's not over her and you're a fill in.

 

6. You don't have the same outlook on life.

You want to travel, but he loves being a homebody. You want kids, while he'd rather act like a kid. The future you each envision is important when deciding the fate of your relationship. Do you really want to look back and consider your time wasted?

 

7. His cute, quirky habits are starting to grate on your nerves.

If his leaving the toilet seat up, not washing the dishes for days and poor table manners are starting to annoy you more than nails on a chalkboard, heed the warning sign -- and don't expect him to erase those behaviors away time soon. Believe us: He will not change. No matter what he says, you've got to love him for who he is right now, or it's probably not going to work.

 

8. He has a bad track record.

As the saying goes, history repeats itself. Even though he seems dedicated to you, Facebooking with past hot and heavy flames and flirting with the waitress could be signs he's not interested in settling down.

 

9. The relationship is all about sex.

Of course, sex in a relationship is good, but it shouldn't be the sole form of entertainment. If spending quality time outside of the bedroom with you doesn't interest him, you should lose interest in him.

 

10. Look beyond the chemistry.

Minus his good looks and hot bod, would you still want to be with him? If your answer is "no," well, that's a really good sign he's probably not the one.
