10 Unfortunate Lessons You Learn From F*cking With F*ckboys

10 Unfortunate Lessons You Learn From F*cking With F*ckboys

I wish you were as great as you talk yourself up to be.

F*ckboys: We can't live with 'em, but for some unexplainable reason, we can't live without 'em either.

Whether you enjoy the massive amounts of stress or countless texts that go unanswered, I understand your predicament and feel your pain. It doesn't matter if you've had the "pleasure" of knowing one f*ckboy or twenty-seven. At the end of the day, they all teach you the same things.

1. They lie, sometimes religiously.

"No, I don't talk to her anymore."
"Sorry, I never saw your text!"

Sound familiar? Lying is in their blood and they're proud. Sometimes they don't even know the difference between right and wrong because they've spent so much time hiding things. If you've been unlucky enough to meet one of these people, run. Trust me, it's not worth your time.

2. They think they're more clever than they actually are.

Girls know everything. So never doubt our ability to uncover the truth because we can find out exactly where you were last Tuesday at 9:32pm and which girl you were seeing when you were "too busy" to respond to a text.

3. They're professional ghosters.

They wouldn't be f*ckboys if they always replied to your texts in a timely manner (or at all), right? Realize when they're truly busy and when they're just ignoring you.

4. You're never the only one.

You're completely naive if you think otherwise. If there isn't already someone else, they're always on the lookout for her.

5. They're vain AF.

Name one f*ckboy that doesn't think the world of himself. That's right, you can't because they wouldn't be f*ckboys if they didn't have massive egos. Shout out to the girls out there who aren't afraid to keep these boys in check every once in awhile.

6. Friendship or "friendship," pick one.

The idea of "friends with benefits" is great, but it's not actually possible. Your relationship always leans more heavily on one side. Most likely, it's the "friendship" side with a small touch of true friendship. I mean, honestly, have you ever been in a situation where it's truly 50/50 and not awkward in public?

7. They'll make you crazy.

If you weren't already borderline crazy/obsessive/possessive, trust me, they'll make you seem over-the-top insane. They know exactly how many times to text you first before leaving you questioning your status and obsessively checking Snap Map to figure out which "friend's" house they're visiting.

8. Your friends will be annoyed by your pettiness and complaints.

Best friends deserve all the gold stars, good karma, and non-f*ckboys in the world for putting up with your constant pettiness, complaints, and what-if scenarios. No matter how many times you go through these situations with each other, they never really get easier. But at least you have each other to complain about that with, too!

9. Once a f*ckboy, always a f*ckboy.

You can't change people. They are who they are, and while there might be moments when they prove they're not completely terrible, those don't come along often. I'm not saying every f*ckboy lacks respect (for women), but be careful because some do.

10. No matter how hard you try, you will never be as heartless as they are.

It doesn't matter how often or hard you try to master the f*ckboy lifestyle--you can't and won't be able to do it because you likely have at least an ounce of human decency and respect for others. While not every f*ckboy is equally as heartless or always extremely rude, it's safe to say that you don't think he's a f*ckboy because he's always thinking about you and your needs.

But let's be real: no matter how many times you re-live these lessons, you still never learn.

Before You Double Text Read These 10 Reasons On Why He Hasn't Responded To Your Text

If he has left your last message on 'Read' or 'Delivered' here is why.


It's all fun and games until your newest boo doesn't text you back. You're panicking wonder if you did something or how busy are they to not have responded to you. It's a shot to your pride when you are contemplating sending a double text, so you type a message and delete it, just to repeat the same process over.

1. He is overwhelmed with school

School can be very stressful at times, and everyone processes that stress differently. He may be able to give you the attention you desire because his proprieties lie with his academics.

2. He is not interested and doesn’t know how to tell you

Communicating is important, but not all guys know how to. He does not want to hurt your feelings, so instead of telling you straight up he is not interested, he just doesn't give you any more of a reason to be interested in him.

3. Your last message was not response worthy

Whether it was a bad joke or a dying conversation, he did not feel the need to respond. He did not feel like the conversation was worth continuing or that he could bring anymore excitement to it.

4. You are making assumptions about him

Don't make assumptions about a guy and push those assumptions upon him. If you want to grow with him, you can't believe everything you hear. Guys find it disrespectful when you take false information and try to use it against them.

5. He is busy

If he is apart of athletics, has a job or takes part in any extracurricular activities his amount of free time is very minimal. Scrolling through twitter feed or Instagram is a force of habit, but texting takes a little more energy he is not willing to use.

6. He is napping

Boys sleep. A lot. They stay up all night playing video games and get exhausted during the day. His phone is probably on Do Not Disturb while he takes a three hour nap, just to wake up and forget to take his phone off Do Not Disturb.

7. He has heard rumors

You have potentially done something in your past that he is not fond of and he would rather not continue talking to you. Whatever has been said, he believes it and does not see a point in continuing something with you.

8. Someone else is occupying his time

No girl wants to deal with the thought of her guy dealing with another woman, but there is always a chance. He may not be giving you attention because his attention is with another a girl. He trying to play both sides of the fence but cannot equally give you you both all his time. You just so happen to be the girl that receives the lesser of his time.

9. Playing video games

You know it. I know it. We all know it. Guys are addicted to the controller. Whether it be Fortnite or 2K, they are always some how online gaming. They game for hours and do not want to take a break to text you back.

10. He forgot

Boring, but true. Once he forgets to reply he probably won't reply period. Once forgotten, they typically feel like there is no point and it is just too late to say something back. If you see him in person, don't take it personal, make a funny joke out of it and forget it ever happened.

Now you no longer have to wonder why he hasn't texted you back. There are so many reasons why guys don't respond or even text back hours later. You have to decide whether it is because of his schedule or if he is up to no good.

9 Perfect Reactions To The Invasive Questions Every Woman's Family Asks During The Holidays

I'd rather talk about the weather.


Going home for the holidays can be the highlight of the season. Free food and socializing with your family can be a stress relieving experience.

Everyone wants to catch up on how you're doing and how college is going.

Unfortunately, after your 21st birthday, people start asking about "milestones" in your life. People want to know when you're getting married and having kids.

These questions are especially invasive for women who do not plan to get married or have children. If you are asked one of these nine questions, here are the perfect reactions to them.

1. "Are you seeing anyone new?"

Trust me, if I was seeing someone new, then you would have heard about it. I would have run into this house and told everyone about my new bae. Since that did not happen, you should assume I'm very single. Find me a full-time college student with a job that has time to look for a partner.

2. "Are you still seeing [insert name of ex-partner]?"

Nope, I'm not. Did you notice that I didn't mention their name in the last 20-minute conversion that we've had? Or that they're not here meeting the family. Just assume that they're canceled and never going to be spoken about again.

3. "Have you lost weight? It will help you find a boyfriend."

Do not ask about my weight when we're about to sit down to a 2,000 calorie meal. Have you lost weight? That's what I'd like to know.

4. "When can we meet your partner?"

Considering that they're not currently here with us, the answer is no. It's too soon and I'm not ready for them to meet my crazy family. Remember, I want him to like me.

5. "Are you planning on getting married?"

Do you see a ring on my finger? That's how you'll know I'm getting married. Turn your Facebook notifications on and you'll be very up-to-date on the state of our marriage.

6. "Do you want to have a big wedding?"

0/10 do I want to have a big wedding. Just for asking, you are not invited.

7. "How many kids do you want to have?"

Stop. Asking. Women. About. Having. Kids. There are many women who do not want children or cannot have children. If I didn't bring it up keep your thoughts to yourself or ask someone else.

8. "Do you want to be a stay-at-home mom?"

Have you asked my partner if they're staying at home with the baby? No? Then don't ask me. If my partner isn't expected to stay home, neither should I.

9. "Are you moving back home?"

I haven't decided if I'm moving back yet. If you want to pay my rent, you can let me know.
