'He Viewed My Story, But Didn't Reply' And Other B.S. You Need To Stop Saying

'He Viewed My Story, But Didn't Reply' And Other B.S. You Need To Stop Saying

Stop settling for a guy who makes you feel like shit.

All too often I hear my friends say the following phrases:

“Why did he view my Snapchat story but didn’t snap me back?”

“How come he liked my Instagram but didn’t text me?”

“He Snapchatted me he wanted to hang out soon, but he still hasn’t texted me.”

My reply to this is; why are you settling for a guy who makes you wait around?

If you’re reading this and thinking “I’m not settling.” “My guy’s great. He’s fun, sweet, cute but just busy.” Or “He just doesn’t like to text.” Or “He hates using his phone.”

Well, I’ve got some good news and bad news.

The bad news is you’re settling. The good news is, there is a guy who is great, fun, sweet, cute, and better then the one you’re with now. Because guys are intentional. And if you haven’t liked what I’ve had to say so far, then the next part is really going to sting.

He may like you and Snapchat you, but that is not enough. He may like you and like your Instagram’s, but that is not enough. Because he may like enough to do those things, that make you sit around with your friends for hours wondering what they “mean.” He may like you, but he doesn’t like you enough to be with you.

Because if a guy likes you, he’ll try and pursue you. He’s never too busy. If he hates texting, he’ll call. If he hates using his phone, then he’ll talk to you in person.

Now, before you close this article in anger at the girl who wrote it (aka me). Hear me out. I am one of you. I have sat around wondering why he wants to snap chat me all day, but never calls. Why he likes my instagrams, but can't text me back. And why I sit there, and wait, for a boy who thinks I'm not enough.

There's a guy out there who thinks you're enough. He'll show it in the way that he knows what songs you love to dance to. He'll show up at your house on a Tuesday with a pizza and your favorite toppings, and he'll buy you flowers on your birthday. He'll meet your parents and love your siblings.

He'll never make you wait, never make you question, he'll never make you wonder. You will know, because guys are intentional.

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.
