Trust me—If He’s Really The Guy You’re Meant To Be With, He Won’t Be The Guy To Make You Cry

If he's the right guy for you, he will never try to put you in that position to have to feel sadness, resentment or fear.

For anyone who might know me, you know pretty damn well that I'm a crier.

Yeah, I cry a lot. And I'm not ashamed to admit it.

I cry in the library any given day, constantly overwhelmed with the anxiety of trying to simultaneously write papers, study for exams and somehow pass my classes in order to get this degree.

I cry whenever someone gives me anything along the lines of a confrontation or an attitude.

I cry whenever I see one of those animal shelter commercials on TV with that tear-inducing song blaring in the background.

Simply put—I cry whenever something goes wrong.

And relationships are no different.

It's a bit embarrassing how many boys I've actually cried over the past couple of years but hey—at least I understand now that they weren't worth my time. I actually learned a lot from the tears I shed and if anything, they strengthened me and helped me realize the value of my independence as a single girl who doesn't define happiness anymore as having a man in her life.

But looking back to these boys who I DID cry about in the past, I can infer that they all shared a common denominator of being some complete heartless jerk and that each of them had also made me cry at some point in the relationship.

This realization irked me to the point of asking this particular question:

If the guy you're with is making you cry, then why the hell are you still dating him?

Seriously, forget any thoughts about him becoming your "soulmate" or him "always being there for you no matter what." If he's the one who's making you cry for one reason or another, then honey—he's obviously doing something wrong.

And to set things clear here, when you cry about something, you're not being overly emotional or sensitive. You're not being selfish (as he might put it) but instead—you're expressing your true, heartfelt emotions to him which shouldn't be something you have to apologize about.

If he's the right guy for you, he will never try to put you in that position to have to feel sadness, resentment or fear. And he definitely won't be sitting there next to you either one, trying to figure out what the heck he just did or two, telling you to stop crying like a little bitch. Because if he truly cared about you and your feelings, he will cherish you and would only want to make you feel happy and wanted.

There's a lot of reasons why we might cry over a boy.

To get a tad bit more personal here: I cried over a lot of boys because I never truly felt like they loved me the way I loved them. I mean, they would be telling me all these poetic things about how beautiful I was, how they could see a life together and how much they L-O-V-E-D me, but truthfully, I always thought that my devotion to them was stronger than their simple words/phrases.

I also cried a lot because they made me feel insecure and I was afraid that they would want to dump me for some other girl out there. Boys always have options, you know, and all it takes is one pretty girl to catch his eye for him to sashay out of the relationship to get with her.

And whenever I cried about this reason or that, most of the boys I were with simply shrugged it off as me being a crybaby, me being overly analytical about his wrongdoing or my favorite: because it was the "time of the month." Oh, please.

While different boys have a different way of handling this situation, he's still a rational human being with the ability to THINK and understand certain emotions! And if he really loved you like he said he did, he really won't be there trying to make a joke out of why you're crying. So if he's making the situation worse, or you feel as if he really doesn't seem to care about you, then it might be time for you to wave adíos at him.

The next time you find yourself crying excessively about the guy you're with, it might be time to re-assess your relationship with him. Don't think of it as you being delusional or just overly crazy about him.

Because if he's really the guy you're meant to be with, he won't ever make you cry.

31 Things That Are True When You Date A Guy Who Loves His Car Just As Much As He Loves You

If you know, you know.

1057
views

When you date a guy who loves cars, your relationship is NOT a normal relationship. It is always filled with adventure, and there is never a dull moment. This is what happens when the person you love, loves cars just as much as he loves you.

1. You drive everywhere.

Robert Keck

Down the street? Drive. Day trips for the hell of it? He'll be the one driving. Even if it is your car, you're probably going to be sitting bitch.

2. Car meets are a thing.

South Philly Car Meet

Robert Keck

Did anyone know this was a thing? Because before I started dating my boyfriend, I had no idea this was a thing (and it happens often). Yes, all these people just park their cars and everyone talks. It is a sight to see.

3. He will go out of his way to look at someone else's car.

Giphy

He will take an extra turn just to see a car. Any dinner reservations you have better account for the 15-30 minutes out-of-the-way driving.

4. There are a lot of late nights.

Hannah Porter

Whether it is holding the flashlight, or just keeping company, be prepared to be outside for a while. Always bring a coat.

5. There are more pictures of his cars/trucks than you.

Robert Keck

Don't get your panties in a bunch. I honestly have no problem with it. He still has pictures of me, so who cares?

6. He has two loves in his life.

Samantha Wylesol

You, and his car(s).

7. Every other sentence has the word "engine" in it.

Hannah Porter

Do you know how many different types of engines there are? Because I did not. Be prepared to learn about every single one.

8. An absurd amount of money is spent on car parts.

Giphy

Theres nothing more I can say on this matter. Just know it is an absurd amount.

9. You'll drive hours away for a good deal from Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist.

Hannah Porter

One day, we drove three hours for an engine at 9pm at night. It is always something.

10.  "I just need to fix this one thing" does not mean he'll be done in 10 minutes.

Robert Keck

Nothing ever takes 10 minutes. It's a trick.

11.  He'll be the first on the scene when you fuck up.

Hannah Porter

Yea, that happened. Guess who showed up first?

12. You will hear him arrive. Or, you will hear him a few roads down.

Robert Keck

Just wait until he fucks up the exhaust.

13.  There is always something to fix. Nothing is ever done.

Robert Keck

You don't even want to know what is happening here.

14. You will be doing a lot of flat towing and rescues.

Yes, we break down. It happens. You know damn well that he fixes it within the next few days. I have to give him credit, I could never do what he does. I can't wrap my head around it.

15.  Prepare to get "The look" if you drop food in the car.

Cary Porter

Don't risk it.

16.  You learn a ton of new terms.

Hannah Porter

I once did not understand something (actually about the above TransAm), and he pulled out a BLUEPRINT of the car. I still don't know what he talks about half the time.

17. You have your own personal mechanic

Hannah Porter

Guess who learned how to do their own oil and brakes? Anything after that he's going to have to handle. He constantly plugs my tires because I somehow find every nail on the road in Philadelphia.

18.  He holds more knowledge of cars than any other topic

Robert Keck

He is able to see a car and rattle off the make, model, year, engine, and all the other shit that goes along with that. He is able to do that with almost every car...how do you hold all that knowledge?

19.  If he is on his phone, it is guaranteed that he is either on Facebook Marketplace, Youtube looking at car videos, or Instagram looking at car profiles.

Giphy

Plus: he won't be liking other girl's pictures, unless theres a truck in the background.

20.  Whatever you do, DON'T SLAM THE DOOR.

Giphy

I learned this very fast.

21.  Prepare for a lecture if your feet are on the dash.

Hannah Porter

The whole outside of the truck can be muddy, but god forbid there's some dirt on the dash.

22. Cleaning out the car is not just taking the trash out of it.

Giphy

Trash out, tools organized, car washed and waxed, tire shine, carpet vacuumed and shampooed, all seats moved, etc. It is a whole ordeal.

23.  Tools are everywhere.

Giphy

Whatever you need, it will be there in large quantities. Also, let this go along with the ABSURD amount of money that is spent on car stuff. That ratchet in the middle can cost over $150!

24.  Don't open the garage.

Giphy

Just...don't.

25.  He won't go through a car wash.

Robert Keck

Hand wash only. Do not go through the tunnel. It will leave scratches in the paint (obviously).

26. There is always a "project car"...or cars. 

Hannah Porter

My boyfriend at all times has at least 2 project cars, I swear.

27.  Yes, that car has been sitting there for over a year.

Robert Keck

It will be worked on...eventually.

28.  He is a pro-negotiator

Giphy

No one knows money better than your car guy. When it comes to negotiating prices, he is the one you want to bring with you.

29.  Most of his friends are car people, too.

Robert Keck and Jake Ryan

All the car parts, car talk, car pictures, and all the shit that goes with it is doubled or tripled. Wait untill there is a car full of them.

30. He'll do some stupid shit.

Hannah Porter

He'll be fine. You learn not to ask questions anymore.

31.  No matter how much he loves his car, he will always make you a priority and love you unconditionally.

Hannah Porter

I must say, all of this stuff can be a lot to deal with. But when you have the right person in your life, you will enjoy every moment of it. I have never laughed so hard in my life than I have with my car-loving boy. Do not let this discourage you. Date a car guy. It will be one of the best decisions you will make.
