The four types of women you should never date: Jealous, clingy, future wives, and the totally crazy one. Avoid dating them and you'll enjoy better relationships in the future. Here's some great reasons why, how to look out for them, and how to treat the break up or avoidance without being a jerk.

There's an old saying: "You can't judge a book by its cover." This idea is certainly true when it comes to women. Some girls can be beautiful, intelligent, and kind on the surface, but all that goes out the window once you get to know them.
In other words, they're crazy!
Unfortunately, most guys don't figure this out until they're overly involved in the relationship.
If the girl's positive qualities outweigh her negative ones, a man may want to work things out. After all, no one's perfect, right? On the other hand, it never hurts to do a little investigating.
The following are four types of girls you should stay away from.
If it sounds like you're reading about your girlfriend, you might want to think about taking some time off.
The Clingy Chick
The name says it all.
Clingy girls have to be in constant contact with you, otherwise they'll lose it.
Ten minutes after dropping her off, she's blowing up your inbox with texts or voice messages.
She wants to spend every waking moment with you, and before you know it, you're finding it difficult to breath.
As soon as you see any indication of clingy behavior, you must lay your foot down (nicely, of course).
Tell her that while you enjoy spending time with her, you also have other obligations, such as work and friends. Don't promise to call her if you can't keep that promise, and encourage her to spend time with her friends as well.
If, after it's all said and done, she reacts badly, drop her.
The Jealous Girl
Many guys end up paying for the sins of ex-boyfriends. If she was cheated on, she'll assume you're going to cheat on her too.
It's not fair, but it's a problem that doesn't seem to be going away either.
To prevent the past from repeating itself, she clings to your side.
The presence of any other female in your life makes her see red, and things really get ugly when she starts checking your voice messages and emails.
If you decide to stick it out with this type of girl, you need to have a heart-to-heart with her.
Tell her how bad it makes you feel that she doesn't trust you, and if she can't get past her insecurities, you don't see how the relationship will ever grow.
Don't apologize for your female friends or co-workers; just make it clear that there will always be other girls in your life, but she's the only one you want romantically.
Once you've discussed the situation with her, the ball's in her court. If she doesn't wise up, it may be best to move on.
Your Future Wife
Some girls have a predetermined sense of romantic destiny that's the result of watching too many Lifetime movies.
From the moment this girl meets you, she envisions wedding bells.
You, on the other hand, work at a much slower pace.
If it were me, I'd end this relationship as soon as possible.
True love takes months (even years) to develop, so any girl who's overly eager to find it is just dreaming out loud.
Some guys, however, truly have feelings for the girl, and they want to see if the relationship will work out.
If so, gently tell her that you have similar hopes for the future, but you want to take one day at a time.
Whatever you do, don't set a wedding date! It's not uncommon for men to take drastic steps against their "future wives."
They talk about hating weddings or never wanting children in an effort to squash their girlfriends' dreams of matrimony.
Doing this will only upset her.
If she's accepted the fact that you want to move slow, drop the subject.
Don't intentionally make her feel bad.
The Real Crazies
The three characters above are nothing compared to the real crazies.
These are the women who park their cars outside of your house at night, cry if you don't look at them just right, and stalk your female friends.
In other words, they're two steps away from a restraining order.
When talking to unbalanced women, try hard to maintain your temper.
Approach the situation like a bomb that's set to go off, and you're a member of the bomb squad.
To be honest, the best advice I can give when it comes to mentally unstable women is to end the relationship, which is often easier said than done. In some cases, you really may need that restraining order.
If you suspect that your girl may fit any of the above categories, it's your call on whether or not to continue the relationship.
The decision to stay or leave depends largely on your feelings for the girl, as well as how much crap you're willing to put up with.
If, after trying the tactics discussed in this article, the situation doesn't improve, I'd call it quits.
Move on to a more fulfilling relationship.
