Having had a few Mr Wrong girlie nights at mine and judging by the feedback I have had, it seems that everyone, at some stage of their lives, has encountered one of these Mr Wrongs or “Mr Wrongun” as my Dad likes to say! Below are some sketches drawn by the very talented Amde Anbessa-Ebanks
If you want to go ‘Mr Wrong Spotting’, a bit like bird watching without the binoculars, or like most, want to simply avoid Mr Wrong simply use the key below to IDENTIFY and AVOID!
Mr Loose Eye
Appearance: Large google eyes and gormless expression. Often has his mouth open and has a tendency to dribble.
Movement: Shifty revolving eyes and a revolving head that can turn a full owl-like 360!
“I’m just looking at her T-shirt!”
“What were you saying?”
“Why are you always accusing me!”
Tone of Voice: Soft and reassuring.
Mr X Factor
Appearance:wears a permanent pained expression as if he’s had an unfortunate encounter with a liquor of laxatives.
Movement:Walks slowly with shoulders stooped; he’s a broken man trapped in a time warp
“I’m over her.”
“She needs me.”
“Me and my ex use to go here.”
Tone of Voice: Monotonous and whiny.
Mr Parasite/Emotional Vampire
Appearance: Looks shiny on the outside. Looks are irrelevant as they are deceiving but if you look close enough, you can see the hooked claws, translucent skin and sharp fangs beneath his smiling mouth.
Movement: Walks as if he is drained of all energy before feed and buzzing with excitement after.
“I’m not blaming you but it’s your fault.”
“We need to talk.
You’ve upset me again.”
Tone of Voice: Will use any tone of voice necessary to get required ‘emotion’ across. Often has an accusatory/defensive tone.
Appearance: Small tired eyes, a tense expression. Rarely smiles. Often has a throbbing vein located at right temple.
Movement: He dashes about like a bolt of lightning attending to his work needs but slobs about at home.
“I’m working late again honey.”
“In early tomorrow.”
“I can’t make it I’m working.”
Tone of Voice: Busy, rushed and tense.
Mr Serial Liar
Appearance: Not everything that glitters is gold.
Movementt: Has a shifty rat-like nervousness about him. His movements are quick and sharp as he ducks and dives as if dodging a bullet. Often coughs to cover up his lies, and scratches his head and nose. Prone to twitching and head turning as he scans the area for trails of his lies.
“It’s not you, it’s me.”
“You’re the only one for me.”
Tone of Voice: Amateur– changes pitch and tone frequently. Professional-has a slow and steady reassuring tone.

Don’t forget although we want to avoid and get rid of Mr Wrong we are forgiving women. Why? Because bitterness and resentment are the root of all illnesses and their ain’t no Mr Wrong pill to take so Love, Bless, Release and move on.
