It's Her Way Or The Highway

Whoever said happy wife, happy life, clearly didn't understand equality. The relationship shouldn't feel unbalanced and create unfair power dynamics. Both parties should be giving as much as they're receiving. If an unequal balance is created, the relationship is doomed to fail.
" In a good relationship, friendship, whatever, both people are giving what they want to give without coercion and both feel adequately rewarded for it. Sometimes one person needs more, sometimes the other, but it evens out over time. When you feel like you're being coerced into giving more than you really want, whether that's with force or emotional manipulation or whatever, you're being used and you'll eventually resent it." - munkymu / Reddit
Just Wants Some Attention

"When you eventually tell her how you feel and your desire to be in a relationship, she uses lines such as 'I'm just not ready yet' or 'maybe,' and you fool yourself into thinking that 'yet' is just around the corner, but it never is." - freshballpowder / Reddit
Be careful of women who just need someone else's validation to feed their ego. They usually are coming from a place of low self-esteem where they need to feel desired by someone, even if they have no interest in being with him, just to feel like they are worthy. These women need to find happiness within first before committing themselves to someone else.
Emotion Is Not Welcomed

Some women need someone to vent to and assume their partner will have to listen to their complaints non-stop They want to completely unload on someone else yet they don't give their partner's issues any worth. Rather they dismiss their feelings any time they try to bring them up.
"Anytime you try opening up, you're acting off-character, selfish, an ass, etc. it's usually the typical pathetic manipulation people pull to make you feel bad for either standing up for yourself or just trying to be you." -CutTheShitNow / Reddit

"You should look that up, but basically selfish people that only care about themselves will unload all their emotions and problems onto you to feel better, but will never ever reciprocate because they feel their issues are important and don't view yours as important." Mugen593
Just like the name suggests these are the kind of women that leave you feeling drained. They suck all your energy out with their nagging and complaining and don't fill it back up with any kind of comfort or affection.

Preying On Vulnerabilities

Thankfully there are still some kind and generous men out there but sadly they often get taken advantage of. Some women are only looking for someone who will buy them nice gifts so that they don't have to do it themselves. While this is not the case for most women, be careful of those who claim gift-giving is their love language but never offer it in return.
Lack Of Empathy

"She often accused me of having no empathy, because I was very calm and level-headed, despite the fact that I work with disabled kids which requires a lot of empathy. She had no real concern for anyone unless it was to maintain [a] public image." —DrRonSimmons
Stay away from women who have not adapted to the evolving mentality that men are human beings who have feelings too... More and more women are embracing that for men to show emotion is a sign of strength and not weakness.
Just Needs A Therapist

"Guys, if she only reaches out to you when she's hurt or vulnerable, she doesn't want YOU, she wants sympathy and knows you'll give it to her." —AlphaTangoFoxtrt
The type of women who do nothing but complain because they always seem to find themselves in trouble eventually run out of people who will listen to them or help them. So they end up having to get creative to find new outlets and people they think will fix their problems for them.
The Warning Signs Are Endless

From emotional manipulation to using you to project all that she is angry about in the world, the ways that a woman could use her partner to fill her void and unhappiness are actually endless. In any relationship, always look at how you feel and ask yourself: does this person make you love yourself more? Do you want to grow old with them?
