5 kinds of friends to avoid

Friends are people with whom you share your time and depending on the degree of closeness, your secrets too. But as people have different characteristics, you should be aware of whom you are friends with. A good friend is supportive and will help you achieve greater heights in life. A bad friend on the other hand can simply infect you and bring you down. Some types of friends you should avoid or be aware of are:
The Blamer/ Complainer: The blamer doesn’t take responsibilities for his actions. Instead he blames you and the others for his miserable position. The complainer is always complaining about almost everything. Instead of working on solving it, this person would rather enjoy picking out the negative aspects. These types of friends are not only irritating but also a negative influence on your outlook towards life.
The Dependant friend: These friends not only keep pestering you for financial help or favors, but some of them even tend to seek your advice or guidance for emotional support. Tending to such dependant friends too much leaves you broke both financially and emotionally.
The put down friend: The put down friend has the habit of shaming you every time the two of you are in front of others. This is actually a disrespectful and insensitive act on his part. Some of the ways this person manages to put you down is by cutting you off while you are taking, scold or advise you in front of others, or laugh at your ideas.
The Arguer: The arguer seems to find the urge to argue on everything you say. No matter what the topic, the arguer will find ways to disagree. Eventually what started as a conversation turns out to be a monologue.
The rumormonger: This friend enjoys talking behind your back, or that of anyone else. The person may be inclined to this activity because he loves the attention it brings him or makes him look better than you in comparison.
These are the types of friends you can do better without. Make sure that neither you nor your friends fall in these categories.

10 types of Men

Last time we did an article about some of the different types of women. Today we bring you some of the different types of men. Read and see if your guy falls into any of these categories.

The Bad Boy: The bad boy is a guy who usually dresses like one. Usually dresses hip hop or punk. The good thing about a bad boy is that he is adventurous and confident in some ways. The bad part is that he treats women as replaceable items and thinks they are dying to go into bed with him. A good choice if you want to experience the other side of life.

Mama’s Boy: A mama’s boy is a guy who still is close to his mother and fulfills her every wish. He adores his mom and her cooking. A mama’s boy is very respectful of women and if you can slightly modify him to see you in the same light he sees his mother, or better, take her place in his mind, you will get yourself a guy who dotes you.

The Shy guy: The shy guy doesn’t make the first move for some reason. It could be that he doesn’t feel confident enough or is simply shy by nature. Most likely you’ll have to make the first move and It’ll take you time to know him. These guys are generally gentle in nature and are often surprising. However, always having to make the first move can really get to you.

The Player: The player is a man’s man. A player gets his reputation because he can play field. He is charming, charismatic and romantic and all that a woman can fall prey to. A Player is usually rich. The good thing about this guy is that he’ll show you a great time. He’ll take you to the moon and back. If you find yourself with a player, try to enjoy the trip as long as it lasts, and don’t get involved emotionally.

The Gentleman: The gentleman respects all ladies, old ones, young ones, pretty ones and ugly ones. He’ll pull a chair for any woman, so don’t misread that as an attraction. The sad thing is there are very few genuine gentlemen out there -and the smarter and mature girls may have already booked him.

The Loafer: The loafer is one who prefers to loaf around with no intention whatsoever of settling down. He avoids any sort of responsibilities like a dog avoids water. If you are one of those girls who believe in commitment, staying clear of this guy will do you good.

Man Boy: The Man Boy is basically a man with a boys mind. He usually idolizes some other man and tries to be like him. A great option for women who love to take the challenge of building a man out boy.

Mr. Lazy: Mr. Lazy is abundant throughout the world and especially in Nepal. Mr. Lazy usually shows his true colors after tying the knot. He’ll seldom help you with the house chores and probably be jobless for 9 months in a year.

Sugar Daddy: A gold diggers delight, a sugar daddy will spurge his money on a girl. A sugar daddy enjoys the power he exercises over his girl. To him, a girl is a toy, like a car that locks and opens with the flip of the switch on his remote.

The Best Friend: A best friend understands you and can read you like an open book. A best friend makes the best of partners for life. What you must understand that even complete strangers in an arrange marriage can turn into pretty good friends. From there, you can become best friends. It’s just a matter of trust and giving your spouse some time.

Well, that’s it for this edition. Ladies, best of luck with your men.
