Here are six types of men that you should avoid having a friendship or relationship with.
Men Who Don’t Put God First
I believe this one is the most important of all. If a man doesn’t put God first in His life, then he’ll likely put you way down on his list of priorities. A man who has Jesus Christ at the center of his life will also likely hold his girlfriend or wife in high regard because men are commanded to love their wives as Christ loved the church and gave his life for her (Eph. 5:25).
Men Who Are Consumed With Hobbies
My wife loves college football and basketball and even the NFL, but she isn’t consumed with them. She would rather do things with the family and miss a game than be glued to the TV until the game is over. If a man has a compulsion with hobbies, you might end up in second place to whatever it is he is consumed with. Wouldn’t you rather have a man who is consumed with glorifying God first and then putting his wife or girlfriend next?
Men Who Mistreat Their Mothers
Any man who speaks harshly or mistreats his mother is likely to treat the other females in his life the same way. For one thing, he is breaking the Fifth Commandment to honor his father and mother. There is a strong correlation between how a man treats his mother and how he will treat his girlfriend or wife. It is a strong red flag if he is harsh or mistreats his mother.
Men Who Care Only About Themselves
I once heard about a woman who complained that her husband acted like God. He all but wanted to be worshiped. Everything had to be about him, and he wanted to always be the center of attention. God is worthy of that place in your life. No man should ever take center stage, or the woman should immediately exit stage left!
Men Who Treat Animals Harshly
Women, take a close look at how a man treats his pets or other animals. All animals are a part of God’s creation, too, and we read in the first few chapters of Genesis that God said, “And it was good.” This included the creation of animals. So if a man mistreats animals or acts with indifference in their care, then that man would be one I would avoid at all costs.
How Is He Around Children?
Another red flag is a man who doesn’t like children or even like to be around them. Children are precious to God, and if this man is a potential mate and father to your children but can’t stand being around them or has a short fuse around them, take warning because he may treat them even worse when he has his own family. You’d likely be better off without this type of man.
