Worst dating personalities

Few people actively pursue a pessimistic partner. And daters rarely enter the meet market with this line: "Hey, I'm looking for a narcissist!"

So you probably won't be shocked by this list of seven personalities to avoid when you're dating.

Among the entries: The Narcissist, The Clinging Dependent and The Depressive.

The advice would be a little more useful if our personalities were defined solely by one characteristic. But in most cases, our worst traits exist beside more redeeming qualities.

Most people have minor moments of narcissism and dependency. I certainly wouldn't want somebody to dump me in my moments of weakness.

Do you have traces of dating's dreaded personality types?
