18 Ways To Occupy Your Thumbs So You Don't Think About Texting Him

18 Ways To Occupy Your Thumbs So You Don't Think About Texting Him

This one is for the girls who can't seem to get that fuckboy off their mind.


It's late at night, you're stuck in your thoughts and you can't stop thinking about that guy. The guy who strung you along for far too long, and then out of nowhere left you feeling absolutely worthless. You replay every single memory you have together over and over again wondering what went wrong. You know you shouldn't text him, but you have so many questions left unanswered, but whatever you do, DO. NOT. TEXT. HIM. He is not worth your time and there is a 99 percent chance texting him will only leave you more hurt with even more questions.

So, here are 18 things to do instead of texting him:

1. Text your bestie

If you can't get it off your mind just text your bestie about it. Get it off your chest, but to someone who cares.

2. Read a book

There's nothing better than distracting yourself from your life problems by delving into a fictional book about fictional people who have fictional problems that are fictionally much more dramatic than your real life.

3. Write an article

Write about how you feel in a way that is relatable to other people. Don't let this guy have power over you. You rock and sometimes writing about it can bring the clarity that dwelling in your thoughts cannot.

4. Watch a movie

I watched "P.S. I Love You" for the first time ever the other day and I cried the entire time. I also set my standards much higher than they were because we all deserve a love like that.

5. Workout

Endorphins will take you far.

6. Delete your pictures together

If this person was toxic, then it is probably best to not have those pictures to constantly remind you of him when you are scrolling through your phone trying to find a throwback picture.

7. Block his number

If you find yourself hoping every text you receive is from him, then block his number. That way you can rest assured his name won't pop up on your phone. You can unblock it once you've moved on.

8. Get a Bumble or Tinder

Swiping right on hot guys will for sure occupy those thumbs of yours. It's refreshing to know there are hot guys out there who are interested. Who knows? Maybe you will find your new bae.

9. Trash his T-shirts

Nothing triggers bad memories of him like his T-shirts at the bottom of your dresser drawer. Trash those shirts, girl. If he is ever like, "hey can I have my T-shirts back?" You can say, "yeah you can have your T-shirts back when I can have my wasted time back." (I may or may not have hoped this exact situation would happen to me).

10. Doll yourself up

Make yourself look good. It might be just the confidence you need to finally realize what everybody else already knows, you're too good for him.

11. Hook up with someone

I have found this to be a harmful coping mechanism for myself personally, but for some people this actually works. To each their own.

12. Buy yourself flowers

"To: Me, From: Me." And guess what... they'll actually be your favorite flowers this time.

13. Order a pizza in bed

Your fingers will be so greasy and drenched in ranch that you won't even be able to text him without completely ruining your phone.

14. Don't allow yourself to talk about him

The less you talk about him the quicker you will move on and forget. Brad who? Irrelevant!

15. Volunteer

Do something to help others. You'll realize how minuscule your problems are in the grand scheme of things.

16. Travel somewhere

Go backpacking in Colorado or lay out on a beach in Florida. Whatever it takes.

17. Clean house

This can be symbolic of cleaning that fuckboy out of your life.

18. Hang out with your friends

Hang up and hang out. Odds are, if you've been investing so much time into one guy your friends probably miss you... a lot.

Look, I Don't Want Your Boy, But 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' Makes Me Feel Incredible

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.


I have seen so many thoughts and complaints that Ariana Grande's new song, "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored" is shallow.

Some are even saying, "this song just perpetuates everything that is wrong with dating and relationships in society today."

But, girl, I have to disagree.

You see, just because I sing this song at the top of my lungs in both my dorm's shower and alone in my car, I am not going to steal anyone's boyfriend.

I am simply pretending like I am some kind of bad chick that no one should mess with but in reality, I apologize for walking in someone's direction.

And, let's say, if I were to say something lighthearted or friendly to him and he responds with actions that propose cheating, he wasn't a good boyfriend in the first place.

Listen, girls: stop being so insecure.

You have a boyfriend. He loves you. He chose you. If another girl comes by and his eyes dart her way, his heart wasn't in it all the way.

Not everything is deeper than the skin.

Now, let me be clear, I am not saying that it's OK for girls to go around and try to steal boyfriends. Actually, that's a pretty trashy move that no one should attempt. I know it happens, though. I know it is everyone's worst fear.

However, there is no life living within fear of rejection and being left. If those are the things that linger in the back of your mind, you will never taste the freedom of living.

Truly living.

So am I a bad person, considering that 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' is my anthem?

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.

So no, just listening to Ari's new bop doesn't make me a bad person or a boyfriend stealer.

7 Tiny Things College Dudes Do That Give Off Major Small Dick Energy

If you exhibit any of these signs, re-evaluate yourself and your choices.


If you don't know what "small dick energy" means, let me give you the Urban Dictionary definition: "someone who shows off masculinity by being cocky, showing off, overly confident to overcompensate their 4.2 inch fully erect dick."

If you're afraid you might have this tragic disease: let me explain some of the key symptoms:

1. Adding girls you don't know on any social media platform just because you think they're hot.

I never thought friend requests could be so annoying.

2. Messaging said girls with some stupid pick-up-line to start a conversation.

What is this? Tinder?

3. Getting mad and aggressive when said girls don't message you back.

Bonus points for calling them mean names!

4. Getting even angrier when they do message back saying they're not interested.

Your insecurity isn't sexy.

5. Putting others down or not treating others with respect.

If you can't be polite to your servers or other customer service employees, you are the epitome of small dick energy.

6. Cornering girls at bars or parties and making them obviously uncomfortable.

If she doesn't seem interested in the conversation, she's not interested in you. Take a hint and walk away.

7. Any sort of forcefulness, pressure, or prejudice coming from a guy as he's talking to a girl.

BIG indicators of small dick energy and also toxic masculinity!

Now look, I know it sounds like I'm being a bitch, but let me tell you that I, and every other female on this planet regardless of race, sexuality, or anything that differentiates us, has been a victim of men with small dick energy. And it's not fucking cute anymore. In fact, it never was. If anything, it's uncomfortable, it's annoying, and it's concerning.

A girl is not a bitch, a slut, a loser, or any other name you want to throw at her if she doesn't like your advances. Calling her that is probably going to make her want to suck your (small) dick even less than before, if possible. We don't know you, and even if we did, we don't owe you anything. And if your first reaction to rejection is name-calling and blatant aggression, then you are likely a toxic person as it is who's got some deep-seated anger issues that you should probably take care of. And if you think that treating someone like that is okay and don't see anything wrong with that, then you might just be a psychopath, honestly.

Have some class and self-respect, guys, and leave the #smalldickenergy back in 2018.
