My heart wasn’t the only heart shattered after watching last night’s episode of Insecure. Sadly, we’ve all or will come across a fuck boy; a man with the mentality of a little boy with no real intentions of committing to anything or anyone but himself. In the words of Tasha, “There is nothing worse than a fuck boy that thinks he’s a good dude.” Here are 10 tell all signs of a fuck boy.
1. Your only form of communication is through text
Short, sweet, and straight to the point is the motto of most fuck boys. To avoid intimacy, they refuse to pick up the phone and engage in a simple conversation. They’ll usually come up with some excuse, such as I’m busy or I don’t like talking on the phone.
2. Sex is the only topic he seems to care about
If he cares more about the color of your panties then your favorite color, sorry my friend, you have encountered a fuck boy. One sure sign of a fuck boy is his lust for sex. If the only time you recall having a decent conversation involved sex, you are dealing with a fuck boy. He is letting you know exactly what he wants from you. He’s just waiting for you to participate.
3. He could care less about your dreams and aspirations
Instead of inquiring about your dreams and five-year career plan he would rather know what you’re doing tonight. He is clearly saying, “I care more about what I can get from you tonight than a future together.”
If the only time he bothers to text you is at 12 o’clock at night to ask, what are you doing? Run for your life! The infamous WYD text is a dead giveaway.
5. He’s too busy
We make ample time for the things we want. If a man really cares about you and wants to spend time with you: you won’t have to fight, scream, shout, and kick for his attention.
6. His phone is way more important than you are
It’s funny how he takes hours to answer a good morning text but will reply to his best friend within seconds. Fuck boys are serial texters and notorious for checking their phone 24/7. He’s not texting you back because he’s busy. He’s not texting you back because you are not a priority in his life.
7. Let’s Chill
Since when did sitting on his couch and watching Netflix become a date? In case you didn’t know fuck boys are pretty cheap. They think dinner and a movie are the gateways to marriage. So, they’ll try to avoid it at all cost.
8. You like 9 to 5 but he’s the weekend
The weekend is a fuck boy’s playground. Most fuck boys would opt to spend the entire weekend with you and disappear Monday through Friday.
9. Oh, she’s just a friend
Let’s be honest, how many female friends can one man really have? If women are constantly commenting hearts, smiley faces, and kisses under his photos, those are not his friends. He doesn’t belong to you, he belongs to everybody. There is nothing worse than ending up with somebody that’s been with everybody. Don’t be afraid to investigate his Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. If he is selling a false fantasy to you, more than likely he is doing it to other women.
10. Let’s just work on our friendship first
How many of us have heard this line before? Just like time waits on no man, neither should you. “Let’s just work on our friendship,” is a line most fuck boys use to give false hope. If he really intended on having a relationship, you would be working toward a relationship, not a friendship.
