We’ve all dated our share of guys who need constant female attention, and it can definitely get tiring. It’s not that we mind not being their primary source of attention, but sometimes it gets tiring.
Guys who need constant female attention are nothing but trouble. They’re difficult to deal with and they always end up disappointing us even more than we thought they were capable of. So save yourself the headache and stay away from them. You’ll be better off in the long run.
So if you don’t believe us here are 5 more not so attractive traits of guys that need constant female attention:
5 characteristics of guys who need constant female attention:
1- They think they are players:
Guys who need constant female attention usually think they’re players. They think they “got game” but they just make themselves out to look like clowns. If you’re a guy and you need constant validation from women, it’s probably because you don’t have much going on in your life.
You have no purpose or real-life goals so you focus on silly things to feel valued. In brief, you’re not really living; you’re just existing. And that’s not attractive to women. Women want a man who is confident and self-assured, not one who is needy and clingy.
So if you find yourself constantly seeking female attention, it’s time to take a step back and reassess your life. You may want to focus your attention on one woman who hopefully can give you all the attention and reassurance you need. Instead of trying to be someone you’re not, focus on being the best version of yourself. That’s what women really want.
2- They cannot survive without being admired or flattered:
There’s nothing wrong with wanting a little attention from the opposite sex now and then. But there are some guys who seem to need constant flattery and affirmation from women in order to feel good about themselves. They’ll be throwing compliments right and left at any woman they see in hopes to get some back. They are the ones who are always hitting on every girl they meet, trying to get her phone number or talk her into going out with them.
They are also the ones who cannot take rejection well, and who often react with anger or hostility when they don’t get their way. While it might seem like these guys are just confident and assured, the truth is that they are usually quite insecure. They cannot survive without constant female attention because they lack the ability to feel good about themselves without it.
This often makes them too arrogant and self-centered for most women to want to date them for very long. In fact, these guys often cannot help themselves as they need the attention of women so badly that they will do whatever it takes to get it, even if that means acting like a total jerk and never finding true love.
3- They struggle with staying loyal:
There’s just something about guys who need constant female attention that makes them unreliable. Whether they’re constantly entertaining other girls when they’re in a relationship or they’re always flirting with every girl they meet, they just can’t seem to stay loyal.
And it’s not just that they’re attracted to other women, it’s that they need the attention. They thrive on it. It’s like they get a high from knowing that they’re wanted by other women; as if it’s a big achievement.
As a result, they’re never really satisfied with just one woman and they’re always looking for more. You might think you can fix one of them but the truth is you’ll probably be wasting your time. If you’re dating a guy like this, you’ll never really be able to trust him. And sooner or later, you’ll probably end up getting hurt.
4- They can be womanizers:
Womanizers: We all know them when we see them. They’re the guys who can’t seem to go five minutes without flirting with or hitting on a woman. They always have their eye wandering, and they’re always looking for their next conquest.
Womanizers are often skilled in the art of seduction, and they use this ability to take advantage of any woman that they can get to talk back to them or even look back at them. Womanizers are typically selfish and self-centered. They’re only interested in getting what they want. They often don’t care about the feelings of the women they’re with, and they’re usually not looking for anything long-term.
If you’re looking for a quick fling, a womanizer might be right up your alley but if you don’t want to risk having your heart broken anyway then you might want to reconsider.
In any case, if you’re looking for something more meaningful, you might want to steer clear. In fact, you can check this article out later on how to date a womanizer and if you can ever make one change.
5- They have no standards or type: every girl is fair play:
Some guys seem to need constant attention from every and any girl they can get their hands on. They’ll hit on every girl they see, even if they’re clearly not their usual type. They’ll flirt with their female friends, even if they’re in a relationship. They’ll make crude comments and try to get girls to send them nudes. It’s exhausting, really.
If you have read all that right then you must’ve guessed it: we’re talking yet again about guys that enjoy and live on constant female attention. Any female attention they can get! This type of guy often makes it their life goal to be seen with the prettiest girls and cannot help but brag about how many likes their latest post got. It’s all so superficial.
Maybe it’s just insecurity disguised as confidence. Maybe they’re trying to overcompensate for something. Whatever the reason, it’s annoying and almost comes across as desperation. And ultimately, it’s unattractive. After all, who wants to date a guy who is always trying to prove something?
What if you’re a guy who needs constant female attention?
If you’re constantly looking for reassurance from the opposite sex, chances are you’re not really confident in yourself. And that’s not a good thing.
Sure, it might feel good at the moment to have a pretty girl paying attention to you, but it’s not going to last. Sooner or later, she’s going to realize that you’re just using her for validation and she’s going to move on. And then you’ll be left feeling even worse about yourself than you did before.
