Do you ever wonder whether his imperfections make him cute or just bug the life out if you?

Some things are cute, but some things are just a straight no.

If you’re wondering whether you’re dating the wrong guy, use these signs and you’ll have the answer in no time.

#5 How’s his confidence?

Now really, a nervous date can be cute at times.

Especially when you see him fumbling over the salt shaker, and mopping his brow with his biggest effort at discretion.

Of course, everyone gets nervous during their first date. And it is a happy feeling to know that the date means so much to him.

But even past the first date, if you find that your date is more nervous than Ratatouille during his first encounter with a human, then he’s something that shouldn’t be there at the table!

What can you do with a guy who goes wetting his pants each time he sees you or faces an uncomfortable situation? Gift him a nappy and leave happy.

#6 Does he know to use his tongue?

Now ladies, don’t get all worked up now. We’re just talking about his communication skills here, strictly word-to-word.

Does he swear at the drop of a hat, call you his “chick”, “babe”, or any other derogatory nicknames to address you? You don’t need to hunt down an English knight, but heck, is asking for a decent boy a big deal? Nope, I don’t think so. Yeah, maybe if he’s drop dead gorgeous. But then again, would you date a loose mouth dumbass? Your call. [Read: Things to talk about in a perfect relationship]

#7 Does he treat you with respect?

So you like it when he can hum a tune? That’s a sweet thing, isn’t it? Especially if he’s serenading you. But what do you do when he sticks two long fingers deep into the crevices of his mouth, and produces a shrill infernal noise that could have you turning into a shade of red that could put the tomatoes in your salad to shame?

Does he snap his fingers and go “tsk… tsk…” while addressing the waiters? A man who treats his peers and inferiors with disrespect is the same man who’d treat you with disrespect. Having a commanding personality is good, kicking people around is a donkey’s job. [Read: 12 dating rules for classy men and women]

#8 WTF is with his humor?

Every girl’s dream is to hook up with a suave, smart man who can make them laugh till happy tears go woozy on their pink cheeks. Who wouldn’t like a guy who can make a girl scream at the right times, and then laugh during the rest?

But then again, we have the clowns. Women don’t dig them. Little kids do. What are you supposed to do with a guy who thinks he’s so funny, and pulls wise ones off about you, your mom, your dad, your little dog, your pals, and about your little ‘secret garden’! Aargh, stick your Jimmy Choo up his rear end and limp out of the date if you have to.

#9 How are his restaurant manners?

You have a great dinner, and you’re happy that he’s skipped all the signs of a loser date boy. But wait until the check comes through before making your judgments. If you find that he starts humming a tune, drumming his fingers on the table, or doesn’t even acknowledge the fact that there’s a bill to be paid, stake him to the ground.

If you’re a feminist and all, you’d probably be thrilled about it, but that’s no feat to be proud of. A great guy would want to take care of a great girl, and a guy who can’t get a small detail like a check is no great guy. [Read: How to be a good date every time]

#10 The woman’s instinct!

Now all said and done, all screw ups and happy thoughts apart, what do you feel? Would you be happy to see this man again? You may have gone right with all the pointers here with your date, but you may still find the spark missing at times. If that’s the case, then drown his thoughts in the toilet bowl.

On the other hand, you may have just got off a date with the perfect wrong man. That man who makes your heart woozy and your southern regions buzzy. Well, you know, he probably had all ten red flags waving out in perfect unison, but you know what, even if every bit of your heart wants to date this boy who’s all wrong, stay away from him. You’d only regret it later.
