8 Promises About F*ckboys We Should All Try Our Hardest To Keep But Will Likely Break In The New Year

8 Promises About F*ckboys We Should All Try Our Hardest To Keep But Will Likely Break In The New Year

It's the thought that counts, right?

I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. If you want to see change in your life, why do you need to wait for the beginning of a new year?

However, with the start of my final semester of undergrad coinciding with the start of 2018, I figured now is the best time to make a few promises to myself.

1. I'll stop waiting for texts that will never come

You know how it goes. You make plans earlier that night and are waiting for confirmation that they're still planning on coming or are on their way over. They get your hopes up either to eventually ghost you or drunkenly call and wake you at 3 AM. Either way, no boy is worth the lack of sleep anymore.

2. I'll be wearier about what he says and how he says it

F*ckboys know a thing or two about sweet talking and ambiguity. No matter your level of expertise when it comes to dealing with these types of guys, we all fall victim to their initial charm. Be careful, and realize when he's playing you so you can call him on his bullsh*t.

3. I'll gain the courage to go out on dates rather than give excuses to avoid them

Now just because they take you out on a date doesn't mean they're not still f*ckboys; trust me. However, if he's willing to put in the effort to get to know you mentally and emotionally rather than just physically, there's a chance he's at least somewhat decent.

4. I won't annoy my friends about my f*ckboy problems when I put myself in those situations

Shout out to everyone who's had to listen to my ridiculously dumb problems, many of which I put myself into. I'll try to be better about it this year.

5. I won't tell my friends about any new boys unless they last longer than one month

Let's just save some time and a few dozen texts to ten different people about a boy who will ghost me after a week, yeah?

6. Similarly, I won't get attached to or idealize any new boys unless they last longer than one month

Most f*ckboys drop like flies after week 3, so I really don't understand why I idealize them before that point. You'd think after all this time I'd know better.

7. I'll stop putting a f*ckboy's needs and happiness before mine

One more time for the people in the back (AKA me because I'll need to be reminded of this like every day). Like my mom, I often strive to make others' lives easier and brighter even if it makes mine harder. Over the years, I've put immense effort into people who wouldn't do the same for me. This year, that changes.

8. I'll stop seeing f*ckboys

HAHAHA OK, I know this one is kind of unrealistic, but it's the thought that counts, right?

Here's to potential success in keeping these promises this coming year! Odds I can keep them for longer than one month?

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.
