5 men every woman needs to meet (but not marry)..

Some guys may teach you something, says the author of the riveting novel The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. That doesn’t mean you need to spend the rest of your life with them.

1. The One Who Never Wanted To Commit — Until He Met You This sounds like the dream, right? The guy who proclaimed to all that he’d never settle down with anyone ever, and then ate his words when you came along? But the problem is that no matter how wowed by you he is now, the moment things become less exciting, less overwhelmingly amazing between the two of you (and the moment will come), he is likely to have second thoughts. And that will make you feel awful.

2. The Guy Who Knows Everyone, I Mean, Everyone, In Town This is a guy who’ll save you when you need to get a table at the hot, new restaurant or a contact at a company to which you’re thinking of sending your resume. But be wary. This guy is always chatting on the phone — or sending emails or responding to texts — during dinners, holidays, all the times when you long for attention.

3. The Funny, Charming, Sensitive Guy Who Pouts And Says “Nothing” When You Ask Him If Something’s Wrong He’s got so many wonderful qualities. So please, date him — if only because you’ll learn a lot about the importance of another quality: open communication. The thing about marriage is that it’s really long. You might be the greatest, most thoughtful and kind-hearted person in the world; I guarantee you are still going to occasionally piss him off. It’s easier, for all of us, to sit in silence and seethe and think self-righteously that if our partners were better people, they would know why we are mad and wouldn’t have to ask. It’s a lot harder to say, “I know you didn’t mean it, but that joke you made in front of our friends about my slow work habits made me feel lame.”

4. The Guy Who Is So Good-Looking — Or Wealthy Or Successful — That All Your Friends Are In Awe Here’s my advice: See what it feels like to walk into a room with him. Watch your friends’ and acquaintances’ eyes widen ever so slightly. Just remember, it can be hard to separate the feeling of pride and exhilaration that comes from having won the affection of someone deemed desirable from the more tender feelings that are the basis of love.

5. The Earnest, Bright-Eyed Younger Man Who Adores You This guy not only wants to commit your every utterance to memory but also heartens you with his sweetness and solemn desire to find love. This will help you more than you know, especially on those days when the men you’ve dated have caused you to question whether guys even have feelings. (We all have those days.)
