Every girl, at some point in their life, has had a boy that they've maybe talked to or fooled around with in the past. No judgment here, I've had a boy that I used to talk to, but for a lot of reasons, I no longer do, and I am SUPER happy about it.

But, nothing is worse than when they hit you with that "wyd?" text when you're out and about, having the time of your life with your friends.

I can think of a million things that are way better than texting that boy who doesn't deserve me or my attention, but here are 40 that show literally ANYTHING is better than having our time wasted and our hearts broken.

1. When you were at a concert

Megan Courtney

For me personally, I ignore almost every one when I'm at a concert, especially if it's All Time Low or another one of my favorite bands, but nothing is worse than a boy texting you during this time. Leave his ass on read and enjoy yourself, girl.

2. When you were at the movies

Especially during "The Incredibles 2??" Boy, bye.

3. When you were at the amusement park

I'm not trying to die while sending a text on a roller coaster. You can wait.

4. When you were swimming

My phone is worth more than you.

5. When you were having family dinner

What a perfect time to say something to my family to get them to hate you.

6. When you were getting ready for a girl's night out

Sorry, can't text and put on foundation at the same time.

7. When you were taking a shower

How dare you interrupt my shower playlist.

8. When you were on the phone with your best friend

Oh look, another opportunity for me to roast you.

9. When you were shopping with your mom

Left on read, loser.

10. When you were driving around with your friends

Don't try to kill my mood.

11. When you were walking your dog

My dog deserves my complete and undivided attention.

12. When you were playing with puppies

Ignore everyone and focus on the puppies.

13. When you were applying for a job

Go get that money, honey. He can wait.

14. When you were actually at work

Can't talk, we're SUPER busy.

15. When you were cleaning out your closet

Don't talk to me. I'm going through my closet and surprising myself with clothes I didn't know I had.

16. When you were watching music videos

I don't care if I've seen this video a hundred times, LET ME WATCH MY FAVORITE BAND IN PEACE.

17. When you were watching TV

A new episode of my favorite show is on. Do not talk to me.

18. When you were eating tacos

Or chicken nuggets. Or food in general. Just don't talk to me when I'm eating. Food before dudes, fries before guys..you get it.

19. When you were in bed

I have just showered and climbed in bed for the night. I'm not going anywhere.

20. When you were sleeping

It's 3 a.m. Of course I'm not awake and of course I don't want you to "slide in."

21. When you were hanging out with another boy who actually appreciates you and not just your body

You had your chance.

22. When you were at school

Passing my exam or talk to a boy? Hmm...

23. When you were buying concert tickets

Nothing on this Earth is more stressful than trying to score concert tickets and your phone is blowing up with messages from a person you have no interest in talking to.

24. When you were on a road trip

All I want to do is roll the windows down, listen to some throwback tunes and make memories with my best friends. Talking to you would ruin it.

25. When you were at the zoo

I'm petting a shark right now, I have no time for you or your bullshit.

26. When you were at a family reunion

This is another opportunity for me to turn my whole family against you.

27. When you were at a birthday party

Who has time to text when there's cake?

28. When your favorite band released new music

Don't talk to me. I need to take it all in.

29. When you were on FaceTime with your best friend

This is another perfect opportunity for me to roast you again, so go ahead and text me.

30. When you were watching Law & Order: SVU

This is the greatest show EVER. Mariska Hargitay deserves all the attention.

31. Or just watching any crime show in general

"How To Get Away With Murder" is always SO INTENSE. If you blink, you'll miss something. I'm not risking it.

32. When you were reading a book

I'm heavily into "The President is Missing" by James Patterson and Bill Clinton, right now. Please do not disturb me.

33. When you were getting a new phone

That satisfying feeling when you pull off the screen protector is more than enough to make me not want to talk to you.

34. When you were getting new shoes

Vans may be kind of expensive, but they last longer than any boy does.

35. When you were stalking someone on Instagram

I'm 156 weeks deep in someone's friend's cousin's mom's Instagram right now. Goodbye.

36. When you were baking treats

I can't talk if I'm putting icing on cupcakes.

37. When you were babysitting

Hitting me with a "wyd?" and a picture of your junk is NOT an appropriate thing to look at, especially when you have children around.

38. When you were making tea (or spilling it)

If the tea is scalding, it's likely about you.

39. When you were spending the night at your grandparents' house

This game of Yahtzee is popping off. No time to talk.

40. When you were doing literally nothing at all.

Laying in bed and staring at the wall is so much better than talking to you. Ladies, if you have one of these boys in your life, drop him! He is not worth the stress!

8 Weird Things That Inevitably Happen After You’ve Been On Dating Apps For More Than, Like, 10 Months

Staring and swiping all day really does something to you.

The world of Tinder and Bumble is a weird one.

You meet all kinds of people from all walks of life. Yet for some reason, every single person's hobbies consist of hiking and traveling.

From receiving creepy one-liners about cunnilingus to being constantly hounded to drop all your plans to meet a stranger, Tinder is a gold mine for article content.

1. You never actually meet up.

This is almost inevitable. You'll start talking to someone. It will either be great, weird, or most likely mediocre. You guys have some things in common (probably hiking and traveling) and someone is gonna bring up the possibility of meeting.

Usually one party is busy this week and an actual date never gets set. Or sometimes it is but is never fulfilled.

Neither of you are bad people, it just never happens. I'm not quite sure why this is but it's going to happen at least once. Or twice.

2. You hit Snapchat purgatory.

I am a firm believer that Snapchat is where Tinder flames go to die.

Of course, you might head down the avenue of explicit content that I don't need to present to my Facebook family audience, but more often than not you guys hit a dead end. Maybe you'll exchange a couple snaps for a day or two, but then it turns into crickets on both ends. Something about that little ghost does something to people!

Also, can we talk about how guys are always asking for selfies? I get catfishing is a thing, but if I'm spending the day on Tinder I probably haven't showered and I've just finished crying. Not the best foot forward.

3. You meet up once and then nothing ever happens again.

Okay these all sound depressing but it just happens. A date can go well from both sides and still nothing comes to fruition after. You can argue that it didn't go well enough which could be true, but I think part of the ghosting has to do with current dating culture.

Or it's just me. Yeah, it's probably me.

4. You have an arsenal of weird stories.

A pro to all these weird situations is that you now have a bunch of funny yet disturbing stories about creepy men. The perfect icebreakers for dates, new friends, and work events. It was absolutely horrifying in the moment, but boy can you look back and laugh now!

5. You already know them.

It's always so weird when you see someone you know on Tinder. Old classmates, friends, coworkers. What do you even do in that situation?

My rule of thumb is to reserve the super likes for your good friends so you can inevitably tease them later but also for the cute guys you never had the courage to talk to in person when you knew them. Just keep intentions of the super like clear.

6. You see them in class.

This is a weird one. Whether you matched while you had a class with them or they show up in your class a week later, it's still awkward. Maybe you get lucky and it's the push you need, but it can also just be downright uncomfortable. As Tinder goes, it's usually the latter.

7. Your friend has already been on a date with them.

Even more awkward than being forced to see them in class, is knowing your friend has probably already experienced the same thing. Does the rule of dibs apply? Insecurities and awkwardness can easily roll in.

Or you can both bond and laugh over how weird it was. That's better

8. You have the worst date ever.

Hey! At least you've got a new story!

But honestly exercise your best judgment, don't let any weirdos walk over you, and BE SAFE.

I Asked 11 Independent Young Women All They Accomplished After Leaving A Toxic Relationship

"My grades have gotten better, my mental health has improved overall, and I'm just overall happier with my existence now that I'm in a healthy environment."

We live in a culture that thinks that after a relationship ends, no matter how toxic and draining that relationship was, we need to be devastated. We clearly never loved the person if we don't experience heartbreak. However, I believe that isn't true. Sure, we are heartbroken by the love that didn't make it, but most of the time, leaving a toxic relationship is our saving grace.

I am so sick of watching strong, wonderful, beautiful young women allow a toxic relationship to hold them down. There is SO much more to life than feeling stuck with a partner that makes you feel like crap. You can truly thrive after leaving this relationship and you can accomplish everything you've always wanted and more.

I decided to highlight the stories of 11 strong young women and all that they've accomplished since ending their relationship. This goes to show that the heartbreak will not be your end — in fact, it will likely be your beginning.

1. Since I left this bad relationship, the self-love and accomplishments just keep growing.

"I stopped being nervous about leaving for school, I didn't worry about him pressuring me to do things I didn't want to, and going to school with that lack of worry allowed me to blossom. I've been on the Dean's list twice (round three coming in a few weeks), joined an organization that allows time to grow into a better leader, I volunteer with kids who need me, work with kids who appreciate me, and have made friends who support me. The positive effects of focusing on me just keep on coming." - Anon, 20

2. My dreams came true.

"After I got dumped by my ex, who was cheating on me with my best friend's roommate, I got accepted to my dream grad program and started a business." - Elizabeth, 22

3. I got myself in shape.

"After dating around in college, one guy hit me. I was so devastated that I allowed someone to do that to me that I decided to hit the gym so that way in case I needed to defend myself I could and I could feel good about my body!" - Sarah, 19

4. Now, I am myself.

"I was able to finally just breathe and be myself. I was always forced to do everything his way and please him so I never considered myself. I grew so much as an individual and became stronger because of it!" - Anon, 19

5. I found my passion.

"I got accepted into my school's honors college and discovered my hidden talent/passion for makeup." - Sara, 21

6. I'm in a healthy environment, and because of that, I am happy.

"I learned what toxic behaviors looked like in even the most subtle ways. I was able to learn what I really believed, which didn't really fit with what he believed, or even what my hometown as a whole believed. I became more empowered, believing in myself more and strengthening my voice and opinions. I was able to learn that I needed to treat myself better and hold others to the standard of treating me better, too. I've become more social since I'm no longer restricted from going out or hanging out with friends. I've grown to love my body more now that what I'm allowed to wear isn't dictated by someone else. My grades have gotten better, my mental health has improved overall, and I'm just overall happier with my existence now that I'm in a healthy environment." - Emily, 21

7. Since leaving my toxic relationship, I have...

"- changed my major

- gave up on pursuing a toxic ex-friendship

- got accepted to intern abroad

- turned 21

- met the one

- discovered my own self-worth" - Maria, 21

8. I'm loving every minute of my life now.

"A two-year relationship just ended a little over two months ago. The first few weeks I was a complete and utter disaster. I didn't really know what to do with myself. Now, I am working on school like I haven't before. I didn't let myself enjoy college in my relationship because he was constantly putting me down for coming to college. I am truly enjoying my college experiences especially academically. I have succeeded in so many things and have joined so many new organizations. I am so busy, but so happy and feel more like myself than I ever was in my relationship. I am not 100% better or healed, but that will take time. I am, however, learning so much about myself and loving every minute." - Caitlin, 20

9. I am now ready for the love I truly deserve.

"I learned so many things and it grew me tremendously as a person—but I think the most important things were that I began to see who truly loved me, I developed a higher sense of self-respect, I no longer had someone sucking the life out of me, I learned how to obtain closure and healing inwardly from myself, and I opened myself up to the possibility of gaining the type of love that I am worthy of." - Anna, 19

10. I'm thriving without them.

"At first I didn't want the communication to stop because the attempt at a relationship ultimately ruined a 5-year-friendship, but eventually I just got used to not having them in my life anymore. My mental health has really improved. That relationship was mentally and emotionally draining and wasn't necessarily productive or empowering. Since then I have really enjoyed not getting caught up in what others think of me and have really enjoyed focusing on myself rather than pleasing someone else. Months after not having any contact, they decided to request to follow me again even though they were the one originally wanting to cut all communication. I accepted it, but I've mentally decided not to reach out or make any communication they attempt to be short. I've realized I don't need them in my life and they didn't want the part of me I was offering months ago, so they don't deserve me now. They can watch me thrive and living my life, but they don't get to be a part of it." - Anon, 18

11. I learned so much from this experience, and for that, I'm thankful.

"I became my own person again, I learned how to be happy on my own, gained friends and confidence, overall, I lost a lot during my toxic 4-year relationship and am so appreciative of how I've matured and developed since then. I'm thankful as to how much I've learned from the experience and who I have become today." - Jennifer, 19
