If you are someone that is looking to fall in love, then you must know the characteristics you should avoid before you invest time in someone that is not right for you. Hence, here are some characteristics of a man with low self-esteem.


1. He criticizes you a lot.

A good man will date a woman that he truly likes. If that woman is not somebody he wants, he will stop his efforts and move on. However, if the man you are dating is regularly criticizing you about your personality and your looks, then that is not a good sign.


2. He regularly makes self-deprecating comments

It is good for a man to be humble but if he constantly puts himself down, that is not healthy. It is a sign of low self-esteem if he constantly makes statements like you are beyond his league or he simply cannot believe his luck that he is dating someone like you.


3. Negative Personality

Someone who is happy will always look for the best in you and will try and find the silver lining in situations. You should pay attention if he is always talking about everything that is wrong instead of trying to work with what is right.


4. Too Perfect

If your man has the best car, a great house, perfect clothes and job, and a little too perfect friends, that may be an issue. Someone who is always trying to look perfect is convincing others and themselves of their value.


5. Possessive

Friends add value to life and hanging out with them is fun. It can be a problem if your man is against you hanging out with your friends and does not make any effort in trying to be friends with them.


6. Jealous

If a man is confident, he will trust your relationship and you. If he gets awkward with your guy friends, is jealous, and accuses you of being a flirt, then that is a problem.


7. Bad Listener

Men with low self-esteem will not hear what you are saying but instead will hear what they believe. If he constantly misunderstands you, if he is always hurt by your words and constantly offended, then he has low self-esteem. You should not have to walk on shells or rehearse your conversations before talking to your partner.


8. Does not admit his mistakes

It is important to show your vulnerable side in relationships. It is a huge red flag if your man always blames everybody else but not himself and never admits his mistakes.
