Plenty of women have fallen victim to the charm of a man who shone that gorgeous smile until a girl’s knees went week. From now on, women have to be more careful and more wary of the men who are just going to end up hurting them in the long run. Fortunately, there are some hints and signs that a girl can take note of to determine whether the guy she’s dating is a true blue douchebag.

A good man would always be a willing listener whenever you have something to tell him. He should always be willing to lend an open ear to you whenever you feel like you have to express yourself. He values your voice, your thoughts, and your opinions. However, a man with bad character would only pretend to be listening to you but in truth, wouldn’t care about what you have to say.

He’s quite an actor. He deserves an Oscar for the way he fakes his emotions whenever he’s with you. He isn’t a sincere person and he feels that he needs to manipulate people with his acting. He rarely acts like he really is feeling, and he always comes across as a fake. It’s difficult to figure out where he stands on many things because he never reveals his true self.

Never trust a modern-day Narcissus or Dorian Gray. You don’t want to be caught in the collateral damage of a man who only has eyes for himself. People who are self-obsessed and overconfident are often the most insecure people on earth, and they will only ever genuinely care for their own selves. You can never rely on a self-obsessed person to be there for you whenever you need them.

He is keen on making fun of other people. He doesn’t care about the effect his words can have on other people and whether any feelings can potentially get hurt. Just as long as he gets a good laugh out of what comes out of his mouth, he’s always going to say it.
