* The Terminally Insecure Woman This is a girl who interprets every thing you say in the worst possible light. If you say, "Nice shoes," she translates that to, "He thinks I'm a huge, horrible fat pig and the only thing good about me are my shoes." All women and all people are insecure at times, but the terminally insecure women is ruled by her fears and doubts. These women usually live double lives. What you see when you're with them is a completely different person than when they're by themselves and they eventually crack under the pressure. * The Scorekeeper Scorekeepers never forget anything bad you've ever done. And will go out of their way to remind you of every mistake you've made since the dawn of time. They love to use words like "never" and "always" in describing your actions. You never take her anywhere nice. You're always at work. * The Pretender The Pretender loves to live in a fantasy world. She's similar to the princess but totally unrealistic. She has the innate ability to look at her man and compare him to some mythological ideal lover. She loves shows like "Sense and Sensibility," "Pride & Prejudice," "Beverly Hills 90210," and any movie with Hugh Grant. She dreams of her life being like that, with her knight in shining armor sweeping down to rescue her from her mundane existence.. Even when her life isn't idyllic as seen on tv (tm), she still thinks it will be soon, and no amount of discussion from you will change her mind. * The Blamer The Blamer is usually a woman in her 30s who feels that life has unfairly dealt her a bad hand. It's almost always her ex-husband's fault, and she lives her whole life refusing to take responsibility for anything bad that happens. Like the pretender, she expects a man to show up and solve all her problems, but every man she meets she compares to every nuance of past ex's and they're immediately judged, but the blamer will still keep the man around until a better one comes along - she needs someone to blame stuff on in the interim. * The Victim While I hate to say it, there are way too many "victims". These are usually women who've had some sort of traumatic experience, abuse or alcoholic negligent parents. As a result they don't trust anybody and they don't want to talk about their problems. They just want to be loved, but they have reactive attachment disorder and they push guys away when they get too close. Many turn into lesbians if they've historically been the victim of sexual abuse by men. If you meet a victim, run don't walk. They will eventually subject you to the same perverse abuse in one form or another that shaped them into the amazingly dysfunctional creatures they are. Victims are particularly insidious in that they can often appear to be women who nice careers and a lot going for them, but often all their social accomplishments are merely distractions to keep them from resolving their past and becoming human again. * The Rebel The Rebel often is either wildly promiscuous, pierced or tattooed, with green hair or a big bull ring through her nose. They basically rebel against their insanely controlling parents by seeing how self-destructive and anti-social they can be. Daughters of religious or Jewish control-freak parents are notorious Rebels. They rebel against the monster guilt-trip-manipulation their family laid on them. They will wear an outfit that they know you hate just to see if you say something about it, and it's a big test to see if you'll accept them as they are -- in all their pierced face and unshaven glory. *The Settler There are two variations of the Settler: The Mom and The Marriage-Minder. To her, the meaning of life involves being married, and a man is just a means to an end. She's totally fixated on being a mom. She doesn't really give a damn about the guy as long as he can pay the bills and give her some little pets to make her life meaningful. The Marriage-Minder fixates on an idyllic scene where she is the blushing bride and has a wonderful ceremony and lives happily ever after. The fact that the guy she's marrying is a heroin addict, at the time, doesn't seem like a big deal because she has a nice ring on her finger. * The Psycho biatch From Hell This woman usually is plagued by any number of other conditions listed herein. She's controlling; she's a victim; she's insecure, but the PBFH manifests her behavior in such an extreme way, she deserves her own category. She's the one who will sleep with your best friend, leave her underwear tucked in your bed on the first sex date, or camp outside your house banging on the door if you don't answer your phone. And of course, her prolific ability to fill up your answering machine is legendary. Most PBFH's are also pathological liars and refuse to believe that they can be rejected by someone as scummy as you. Don't try to reason with them. The only way to get rid of a psycho chick is to catch her sleeping with someone else, or very slowly and methodically drive her away by pretending to be the most undesirable human on the planet. This is just the tip of the iceberg DJ's! Avoid women with self esteem, self confidence and unhealthy body image issues. Avoid women incapable of learning or thinking on their own. Avoid women with emotional issues. Avoid women who date men who read askmen.com Avoid women who date metrosexuals. Nearly all subtypes of undesireable women fall from the above list. You may call these items 'broad' - I call them complete. Golddiggers, bimbos, dramatists - they all fall under the above categories and are unnecessary to itemize individually. Boy, that felt good.
