Who Not to Date

I recently learned that Alyssa Milano of Who's the Boss fame has penned a book entitled, Safe at Home: Confessions of a Baseball Fanatic based on her experiences being a fan of baseball and baseball players. After three failed relationships with ball players, she is now engaged to a non-athlete. That got me thinking about something my girlfriends and I talk about a lot: who not to date. When it comes to men, there are just certain categories of men women either learn or just know to stay away from. What are these categories? They are (in no significant order): athletes, entertainers, musicians, anyone in the bar scene (bartenders, djs, bouncers, promoters, etc.), most restaurant industry dudes, law enforcement, military, barbers/hair stylists, ...I think that's it. If you ladies out there can think of others let me know. I won't even go into the details here about why these are bad categories of men to date. Some are just plain obvious while others, well...let's just play connect the dots: scary, cheaters, sex addicts, control freaks, egomaniacs. I think Alyssa Milano has learned her lesson which typically happens after the age of 35. But there are always new lessons to learn. I learned tonight, while out dancing with my friend Derek, that I should add to the "do not date" list, guys who celebrate the 4-20 holiday. He was way weird. And how nerdy am I that I've never heard of this?

Shannon - unfortunately I think the bi-guy like most guys will cheat and he'll probably do it with a guy. Hey, I just don't have the equipment the guys do!

I totally disagree with since there is only one category that we should be labe as: mens. If he is gonna do you wrong he is going to do you wrong before he became a athletes, entertainers, musicians, anyone in the bar scene (bartenders, djs, bouncers, promoters, etc.), most restaurant industry dudes, law enforcement, military, barbers/hair stylists they were man so if they change occupation to like a Doctor that means that he will never do you wrong? I'm just saying, you might be right but none of this categories made them the way they are, it just the way life is
