Relationship Rats

Relationship Rats come in so many different versions…don’t be fooled by any of them.

Some Rats to watch out for and stay away from are:

The Hottie Charmer

This is a man who can make your heart skip a beat just by looking at him.  His words are tailor made for your ears to hear so you fall quick and hard for him. He knows exactly the words to whisper to get your attention and win your heart.

Hottie doesn’t make a good boyfriend.  He’s all about him. He will tell you he loves you one minute (this is the easiest way to get what he wants) and break your heart the next.

Everyone wants him and he knows it and it doesn’t take much for him to drop you to pursue someone else.  Stay away unless you love being with a man who moves from woman to woman like it’s his job!

The Man Just Out of a Relationship

There’s a good chance he’s dating before his divorce is final. He wants a woman he can lean on to help him forget and heal from his last relationship.  All of us need time to heal from a broken relationship before sticking our toe into the dating pool.

If you love being his shrink, go for it-otherwise stay away from him until his life is in order and he’s divorced.  Separated men have been known to go back to ex wives even when they’ve been in a relationship with someone else.

The Intellectual Man

He’s very left-brain and logical about life.  He doesn’t know how to handle a woman and her emotions and prefers the company of women who think like him.   You’ll do fine with him as long as you don’t need him to be your emotional support system.

If you’re run by your emotions, find someone else.  If you’re turned on by his intelligence and have a support system for everything else-go for it!

The Project Man

This is a man with a lot of troubles that most likely revolve around finances and ex’s.  In their own way, they are the male version of a drama queen.  Having been drained by life, they have very little to put into a relationship.

Their energy should be focused on getting their life together but they are often out there dating hoping someone will help them out and take care of them.  Stay away until his financial and emotional house is in order.  Not worth the effort and will ultimately end up draining you too.

Kick These Rats to the Curb and seek your Forever Love and find Everlasting Peace, Admiration, and Acceptance. 

You might want to consider:

The Nice Man-Average Joe

This man is most likely to make the best boyfriend for you.  He’s the kind of man who can grow on you-appearing quite average one minute and unbelievably handsome in your eyes the next.

He wants to please you and make you happy.  He wants to impress you so first dates can often be about him but its only because he’s really interested in you.

As time goes on, he’d have your back and do anything humanly possible to be there for you.  So worth checking out!

The Man Who Understands Emotions

This is a man who really comprehends a woman’s emotional side.  He’s empathetic, loving and caring and often quite romantic.  Chances are he’s either a lefty or ambidextrous.  This type of men can think and feel at the same time.

How much better can it be to have a man in your life who really understands your mind, body and soul?  If you love romance, go ahead and try him out!

    Hi Marcia, Have read and am rereading your book.  Love you writing style and your descriptions of the rats—–really funny.  I wish I could order about 10 or so, but they are expensive now.  Will they go down in price, so I can give them as Christmas gifts? For your next book, please add how do you meet all these men?  I never meet anyone?  So, I don’t even have a rat to get rid of. Love, Marie
