Yes, you read that right. This may seem impossible after you’ve been screwed over by multiple frat boys and lax bros, but it’s true. After all the f*ckboyery I’ve experienced throughout high school and college, I’m pretty much an expert on the subject. Quite literally, I could write the book on it. BUT I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Dating a fuckboy can actually make your relationships more genuine and fulfilling. No bullsh*t.
1. Your f*ckboy radar will be heightened.
When you date a f*ckboy you get to know all of the red flags that come along with the territory. Does he disappear for days, then resurface and act like nothing happened? How about a late night booty call after a night of ghosting you? After a while, these patterns become pretty predictable and you’ll learn to spot their type in their natural habitat. Every time he does something, take a mental note. In the words of Taylor, “keep receipts,” you’ll know better next time.
2. You’ll discover what’s really important in a relationship.
Ending a relationship with a f*ckboy is hard because we hold on to all of their good features and are blind to the bad. I don’t know about you, but dishonesty and cheating aren’t redeeming qualities in anyone I want to be dating. Once you date this type of guy you’ll know exactly what you DON’T want out of a relationship. Everyone looks for different characteristics in their significant others but from my experience, two traits stand out. Be on the lookout for a guy who values honesty and kindness above all else.
