Atlanta Women to Avoid – #3 Women That Love Watching Snapped


Snapped debuted on Oxygen nearly seven years ago and to date remains one of the highest rated television shows on the network.

The show profiles a bunch of delusional women who are supposedly “trapped” in unhappy relationships. Rather than getting a divorce or simply leaving, these women usually end up killing their husbands or boyfriends in ways so creative, that Jigsaw would be jealous.

To be fair, every tenth episode features that one “good” wife or girlfriend that gets killed by the mistress as a result of her husband or boyfriends cheating ways.

Atlanta women are so drawn to Snapped, because like the women on the show, they’re prone to dysfunctional relationships and love playing the victim. The women here absolutely LOVE dating the wrong guys and complaining about it, to whoever’s willing to listen (e.g. their girlfriends, Oprah, Dr. Phil and Tyler Perry).

Once their done complaining, they then have bizarre fantasies of killing or at the very least, threatening their significant others with bodily harm and getting away with it.

As outlandish as it may sound, Snapped to them represents a new age feminist movement, where women are somehow “taking control” against the status quo. Unlike like their television counterparts however, Atlanta women have no interest in being on the receiving end of a life sentence, even if it means relinquishing control (Atlanta women LOVE control, almost as much as dating the wrong guys).

Since killing is usually out of the question, most Atlanta women instead choose to escape for thirty minutes to an hour, by watching a show that rationalizes their homicidal ideals and bad choices in men.

The show subconsciously tells them, “Hey, you’re not the only one that feels this way. It’s perfectly normal to want to strangle your boyfriend with an extension cord in his sleep, after slipping a bottle of NiteQuil into his Gatorade— Oh and here’s how you can get away with it.”

Technically, I guess we should all be thankful that a show like this exists and provides an outlet for all of the psychos out there. But if you ever meet a woman in Atlanta (or anywhere) who utters the words “I love watching Snapped”, and “I never miss the marathon”, then it’s probably in your best interest to end all forms of communication immediately.

#18 Tinder Dates


While not Atlanta specific, over the past few years Tinder has managed to position itself as the official norm of effortless dating which of course fully benefits Atlanta women, since Atlanta men or any men for that matter do not reap the same benefits of the social app.

The way the app works is simple. You simply place a picture of yourself online from five to ten years ago and then complain about others who do the same in the about section of your profile. Step two, while editing your profile make sure that you list your various levels of education, work experience, recent accomplishments and everything else that doesn’t really matter, since the entire purpose of Tinder is to judge each other solely based upon looks. Also, don’t forget to mention the terrible time that you’ve had using the app, while continuing to use the app and be sure to reference your Instagram page.

If done correctly, their system will then attempt to “match you,” with people who are attracted to you from your same general location using your smart phones GPS.

If both of you then like each other’s photos, a match is created and you can then either choose to continue Tidering and not talk to each other (which is what the majority of Tinder users choose to do) or once the chat feature is enabled, ask for free food in the form of an official “Tinder date” which entails meeting in person for the first time, usually at a semi-expensive restaurant for dinner or drinks after work.

As an Atlanta male you should know that Tinder has become a survival tool for a handful of struggling Atlanta women since it provides both food and nourishment. The free food option of course does not apply to Atlanta men.

After about seven Tinder matches, Atlanta women will then categorize their dates by day of the week, attractiveness and meal with Monday usually being reserved for the least attractive Tinder date and cheapest meal, while reserving Friday for the David Beckham look-a-like and Maggiano’s Little Italy.

The end result however is always the same. She’ll take a brief hiatus from Tinder dating and her communication will be minimal, after having been allowed to stuff her face every day of the week. When she returns she’ll now claim not be impressed with money or where the next guy wants to take her. You’ll essentially be out of twenty five to fifty dollars and will only be contacted when she’s bored or hungry now forced to watch her “Moments” on the sideline.

#4 Sassy Singles


It’s not the looks, it’s the attitude that can cause trouble, author says.” Meet the sassy single— She has a bad attitude and has never been able to maintain a meaningful relationship with a member of the opposite sex. She constantly finds herself in situations that usually results in an argument, but ironically it’s never her fault. A simple night in the town at your favorite restaurant, often ends in fear of the waiter spitting in your drink, since your date didn’t appreciate the service, but decided to confront the staff, before having actually received the food. She justifies her erratic behavior to her friends and family by simply stating that she “Knows what she wants and is not willing to settle.”

Atlanta has it’s fair share of self proclaimed sassy women that should be avoided like a venereal disease.

They’re typically between the ages of 34 to 45, and have been in at least two serious relationships, that’s almost resulted in marriage. They’re pretty good at making first impressions, so identifying them will prove difficult. They usually crash and burn however on the second to third dinner date.

It’s essential for you to understand that there’s absolutely nothing that you can do to change or better this individual; especially if she’s in the younger half of her sassy years. No amount of patience, explanation or compromise will change her perspective on the dynamics of a properly working relationship. Older sassy singles however, can occasionally be salvaged. Since these women view their time as “running out”, they’re usually open to just enough change to make things work, but it’s uncommon.

These women will keep you on your toes but are definitely not worth the headache if you’re in it for the long haul. Unasked opinions will prove to be common in this relationship with her attempting to prove that she’s somehow in control.

#14 Christian Minglers


There’s absolutely nothing wrong with having a belief in a higher power but there is something wrong with mentioning that belief on the first date. While they have good intentions most Atlanta women who do this are usually either a) women that are uninterested and will do anything to rid themselves of unwanted dinner guests or b) women that are too interested and should be tested for lead poisoning. The alternative of course is c) women who believe that the both of you were brought together by a higher power which usually results in d) an order of protection.

#12 Women That Aren’t Looking for Anything Too Serious


After years of dating and countless failed relationships, most Atlanta women will eventually come to terms with the harsh realities of the current dating scene. To any man that’s willing to listen, they’ll openly state that they aren’t looking for anything “too serious,” but proceed with caution.

When an Atlanta woman tells you this, your chances of maintaining a strictly platonic relationship dwindle by 51%. Even more so if you’re a half decent guy, that’s currently employed with no recent history of mental illness.

Many Atlanta women take the nonchalant approach to dating and will attempt to convince you that their only interest lies in simply being “friends.” You’ll go out for the occasional coffee or wine tasting and even exchange commentary on issues that the both of you could care less about, had you actually been in a committed relationship. To the unsuspecting Atlanta male, this is a win-win situation, especially if the woman in question is at least semi-attractive.

What could be better than going out with an attractive woman on a regular basis without overly complicating things with talks of commitment or the awkwardness that sex creates?

You’ll get to platonically stare at body parts that any other woman would slap you for observing, all while satisfying a need of hers which is to constantly complain to a guy, who’ll pretend to listen and care, but without the obligation of actually having to be there on a regular basis.

It’s the perfect dynamic to maintain for any male or female seeking companionship.

Unfortunately, most Atlanta women that say they aren’t looking for anything too serious, usually end up starring in their very own episode of “Snapped.” In a relatively short amount of time, you’ll go from the guy that was literally just a friend to the guy that Biz Markie was rapping about in the 80′s.

Try to understand that when an Atlanta woman says that she’s not looking for anything too serious, she really means that she’s dating to marry but has relinquished herself and therefore you of all expectations, since she’s probably been hurt in the past. The not so serious approach, may confuse you but will allow her to feel as if she’s still in control.

#5 “Women Who Believe that Beyoncé’s ‘Single Ladies’ Was a Song Written Personally About Them”


“Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it)” is a song by R&B’s Beyoncé Knowles that was originally released in 2008 but is still relevant today and temporarily drives every Atlanta woman insane when they hear it. The song represents everything that Atlanta women aspire to be— Single, successful, good dancers and in charge. Men should note that playing this song in front of their significant other, automatically ends the relationship—At least for the duration of the song.

Since the lyrics to Single Ladies aren’t exactly the most complicated, being able to actually perform the single lady dance accounts for 60% of the single lady experience and respect. As a measure, Atlanta women  use the accuracy of the dance as a way to determine who’s the most single. Bad dancing usually means that  she has somewhat of a life and only hates men occasionally. A perfectly choreographed routine however means that you should probably head for the hills and not forget to leave your helmet.

Atlanta women love to overlook the fact that Beyonce’s been happily married for the past three years to hip hop mogul and entrepreneur Jay-Z, even though they themselves know the truth. You should never however attempt to divulge this information in front of a group of women in mid single lady.  Doing so will prove pointless and will almost always result in blue balls.

The songs popularity has even sparked the interest of at least one major television network not owned by Oprah.

As if living through the experience of Atlanta’s dating scene or lack thereof wasn’t enough, now the rest of the country will be able to partake in Atlanta’s misery, by watching VH1′s ‘loosely  reality based’ television show titled—You guessed it: Single Ladies.

It doesn’t help that the show is also based in Atlanta and features three professional women, who occasionally cheat and believe that a good relationship equates to meeting a guy who can form complete sentences and actually likes women—the irony.

You’ll come to find out that every woman in Atlanta is a single lady, regardless of their actual involvement in a relationship. The lesson here is to learn to choose the lesser of the two evils or the worst dancer.

#7 Gold Diggers


Gold diggers are the most basic of the Atlanta women who you should avoid. You’ll come to find out that almost every unfortunate experience that you’ll encounter with an Atlanta woman, will somehow always trace back to the characteristics of the gold digger.

Understanding the psyche of the gold digger is relatively simple, so long as you understand the story of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. While gold diggers have yet to develop a taste for blood (although that’s subject to change any day now), they do however love preying on unsuspecting wallets and pocket lint, in hopes of obtaining the latest in designer handbags, glitzy heels and other collectible shit that doesn’t really matter.

Their number one rule is to obtain as much as possible without giving “anything” up.  Fortunately for Atlanta men, that’s where most Atlanta women fail.

Dressed in clothes that they’ve purchased from Plato’s Closet (a retailer that specializes in “brand name gently used clothing”), Atlanta’s gold diggers frequently pay visits to Lenox Mall and Phipps Plaza, where they often pretend as if they’re regular shoppers at Jimmy Choo’s and other high end retailers.

Most Atlanta women will profess, that Lenox Mall and the surrounding areas are a little “too gay” for their taste. This usually occurs right after they realize that they can’t afford that $599 Gucci clutch, plus the premium gas that it takes to fill up their leased BMW 3 series sedan or coupe (a favorite among Atlanta’s female urban elitist).

Gold Diggers however realize the true potential of Atlanta’s high end retail. They know that Atlanta is the only city, where you can buy: out of season, high end items, forty percent below cost and still manage to feel as if you’ve overpaid, but justify your purchase by stating that you shopped at Phipps. This subconsciously allows them to convince themselves, that their somehow better than all of their frugal family members and friends.

In a city like Atlanta, one should be careful not to set unrealistic expectations while dating, since setting any expectations usually results in failure.

Try not to expend too much energy avoiding Atlanta’s gold diggers, since to do so would pretty much mean that you would need to move. Instead, minimize your risk by familiarizing yourself with the places that these women frequent, which offers one or all of the following:

Free admission (For women only)
What’s better than free? How about a guy having to pay a $50 dollar cover charge, where women gain free entry on any given night. This small test of tax bracket will separate the men from the boys in the eyes of the Atlanta gold digger.

Valet parking
If you prefer that your car does the talking for you, then be sure to Valet it upon arrival at your favorite restaurant or lounge. Gold diggers typically hang out 15 minutes near the valet before any decent meal.

Priceless menus
She’ll attempt to gauge your reaction once you find out that her Martini was $14.99 a glass and wasn’t imported. It’s imperative that you maintain your Lady Gaga and not flinch at the site of bankruptcy.

A la Carte
A la Carte roughly translated means “From the menu” or ordered separately. In the eyes of the gold digger however, anything French is expensive and expensive is good, even if she has no idea what it means. Try not to laugh when she orders “Fougasse A la Carte” (bread) simply because it sounds like you’ll need to take out a loan to eat it.

Cheap drinks and/or drink specials
Under any other circumstance, drinking on the job would definitely be considered a no-no, but in the event that she fails at retrieving the pin to your debit card, she’ll at least have the drinks to remember you by in the morning. This may work out in your favor depending on your motives or the last time that you received a shot of Penicillin.

Celebrity sightings
Self explanatory

Is a sporting event
It’s every gold diggers dream, that they attend an NBA, NFL or MLB game and for one reason or another, just happen to meet Lebron James, Michael Vick or Derek Jeter. Golf is acceptable if Rory Mcilroy or Tiger Woods is playing. While you probably won’t be the primary target of the evening, you should however continue to be wary of your surroundings and periodically check on the status of your wallet.

Accepts American Express cards
Having an American Express card, means that you’re apart of the social elite, regardless of almost every retailer and merchant refusing to accept the brand. Atlanta’s gold diggers equate American Express logos with good credit and disposable income. Be rest assured however that your money is safe since you won’t be able to purchase anything with almost every establishment refusing service upon seeing it.

#6 Women Who Attend Strip Clubs for Men and Believe that it’s Normal Behavior

Today, women are more into strip clubs than men. This is especially true in Atlanta, where the women love to complain about the lack of straight men, but actively participate in homo-erotic behavior themselves. Despite not being able to find any good men, Atlanta women love attending amateur night at local gentleman’s clubs, where they make up approximately 42% of the patrons, on any given night.

To any rational thinking person, it should be a mystery as to why the strip clubs are so popular amongst the women in the city. Upon asking however, an Atlanta woman will never give you a straight answer. This discussion will at often times, lead to some type of argument, that you’ll fail to understand and regret having been a part of.

“So what are you doing tonight?”

“Probably going to go to the Cheetah with the girls.”

“Isn’t that a strip club for men?”

“Yeah so…”

“Why are a bunch of women going to go to a male oriented strip club?”

“Men can do it.”

“But that’s not really an answer.”

“If a man can go to a men’s strip club, then why can’t I?”

“…Never mind.”

The truth of the matter is that there’s a variety of reasons that contributes to the Atlanta woman’s enjoyment of seeing other Atlanta women dance around naked. There’s none however that they would be willing to admit to.

A lot of them will argue that they attend, simply because the food and drinks are great; ironically, you’ll never see any of them order take out. Some will say that they respect what strippers do and therefore want to support them in an environment, where it’s socially acceptable. The problem with that statement is that the 32 ounces of baby oil that she just squirted on the back of “Strawberry,” has nothing to do with the feminist movement or the slippery lap dance that she just received.

Atlanta women genuinely believe that they have it harder than any group of women located within the United States, when it comes to dating. Contrary to popular belief, attractive Atlanta women are approached by men (and some women), on an average of 8 to 10 times per day. As a result, the most popular excuse used amongst Atlanta’s women, in favor of attending male oriented strip clubs, is the lack of interested men, in male oriented strip clubs. The theory is simple, Atlanta women feel as if they don’t have to worry about getting harassed by all of the ineligible bachelors of Atlanta, since in strip clubs, they aren’t exactly the ones getting naked and therefore, aren’t the ones receiving all of the attention. This allows them to still dress like sluts, but without the worries of getting approached.

The reality of the situation is that there are two types of women that attend strip clubs and therefore are two types of women that you should avoid.

The first is the Atlanta woman that’s “in touch with her sexuality.” What this basically means in “Atlantanese,” is that she’s bi curious. An Atlanta woman will never admit it, but the terms are interchangeable. These women love attending strip clubs with men, but typically with no more than one to two guys;  having any more would actually appear a little too heterosexual.  You should remember that the goal is to leave you clueless in regards to their sexual preference. Expect to see a female to male ratio of 5 to 1 at any given table.  While they may not want you to approach, they do however want you to look and take notice (see the Attention Whore). With this particular group of women it’s all about exercising options. They want to bring enough guys to appear and feel as if they’re normal, but be around enough women to appear and feel as if they’re somehow exotic.

Second — Should you actually attend a strip club and consider yourself to be a generous tipper, you should probably be very cautious of any woman that approaches and appears to be too interested. To the average woman, a strip club is a very intimidating environment, where a woman’s confidence is usually at an all time low. To the women who are professionally trained in the art of gold digging however, you’re an unprocessed gold nugget from the mines of Grasberg, that they must get their hands on. These women are usually very aggressive. Their mentality is relatively easy to understand. They believe that if you’re willing to throw money at a bunch of women who you don’t know and aren’t sleeping with, then you’ll definitely be willing to throw money at a woman, who you don’t know and are sleeping with.

Avoiding the above  is guaranteed to keep money in your pocket and reduce one third of the confusion that you’ll experience while dating an Atlanta woman.

#8 Material Girls


Please do not confuse the material girl with your run-of-the-mill gold digger. While it remains true that she’s yet another Atlanta woman that you should avoid, the reasoning behind this claim is for an entirely different set of reasons.

As you may recall, Atlanta’s gold diggers will attempt to suck the life force out of any man with a decent credit score.  They meticulously hunt for their prey in environments that are at often times, unsuspecting (e.g Valet parking). They’ve familiarized themselves with all of the different gold digging maneuvers and techniques in an effort to successfully get what they want, which is ultimately not you.

A material girls intention’s however while still financially draining are just a little more innocent.

Material girls are infected with a self inflicting disease called “Shopping Spree” that they’re totally unaware of. Like gold diggers, material girls love wearing designer labels that 85% of the general population can’t afford. They love shopping at Lenox Mall, Phipps Plaza and Atlantic Station for out of season and exclusive, but not discounted items. Unlike the gold digger, material girls don’t care if they obtain their rather expensive wardrobe on their own dime or someone else’s, as long as it’s obtained before it’s marked 40% off and is obtainable by the general public.

Material girls get off on wearing things that others can’t afford or find, even if they themselves end up having to sacrifice. What they fail to realize however is that everything goes on sale at some point and so bad credit scores and chapter 7 bankruptcies are common place in this relationship.

Unless you’re already married to one, you should approach any Atlanta woman holding more than three designer shopping bags simultaneously with caution. You’ll come to find out that she’s most likely a debt consolidation expert who should be avoided.

#15 Tyler Perry Fans


Tyler Perry is an actor, director and screen playwright who released his first film titled “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” in 2005 with a budget of approximately $5.5 million dollars. After having successfully grossed over $50 million dollars domestically with the film, Tyler Perry soon realized the profitability involved in bashing Atlanta men. His films now serve as the visual to the voices of countless Atlanta women, who no one would otherwise care to listen to.

The formula to his films are relatively simple to understand. They typically start out in some Atlanta neighborhood that the city of Atlanta has failed to gentrify. A ridiculously beautiful Atlanta woman (who 90% of the female audience believes they resemble), walks into the scene and spends thirty to forty five minutes bashing penis or copes with some form of an abusive relationship, which includes but is not limited to: physical abuse, mental abuse or some form of infidelity.

Shortly thereafter, this same Atlanta woman meets prince charming who just so happens to be cleverly disguised as an auto mechanic or guy that fixes things.

She rejects his many advances and remains coy, only to eventually consult with a gun wielding and emotionally unstable Madea. After twenty minutes of pointless but entertaining dialog, the Atlanta woman (like the audience), learns nothing from her own experience. She eventually get’s married to the guy that fixes things only to ask herself “Why Did I Get Married?” by the time the credits roll.

Atlanta women love Tyler Perry movies because they feel his films summarize the overall Atlanta dating experience in a public forum, which they believe somehow helps get their point across (whatever that actual point may be). It’s the perfect love hate relationship. Atlanta women hate being a part of the Atlanta dating scene but love complaining about it within their social circles; it’s the only time that Atlanta women seem to get along. Their success is heightened once Tyler Perry debuts his newest film which often consists of drama, greed, violence, down-low men, cheating husbands, women that always seem to get away with cheating and of course fairy tail endings (everything that Atlanta women know and love).

His stage plays are typically held in the same regard as Broadway’s “Cats” or “The Phantom of The Opera,” and therefore are probably one of the best first date options to consider, if you’re attempting to seal the deal and have never been to The Fox. But because his films reaffirm everything that Atlanta women already believe, you’ll be hard pressed convincing the die hard Tyler Perry fan (basically all Atlanta women), that she’s actually dating you rather than one of the sociopaths from Tyler Perry’s latest film.
