23 Things Anybody Who Has Ever Dated A Boy Will Understand

I am a boy. I don't know what I'm doing, but I'm going to pretend anyway.

1. There's usually three people in the relationship: you, him, and his Xbox.

2. They'll sulk if they lose at anything.

Seriously, this could last days.

3. Most of them have trouble with ~feelings~ and how to express them appropriately.


4. They usually need some prodding to do something, like remember that it's your birthday.

5. If you live with them and they ever tidy up, you'll be reminded of it for the next three days.

But first you've got to go back to basics and actually explain what a Hoover is, because some of them haven't got a clue.

6. They have this dreadful habit of going elbow deep in their pants for absolutely no reason.

Why boys walk around with their hands down their pants I will never understand

Checking if it's still there? Ah, cool.

7. They sometimes do it in public, which is the most embarrassing thing.

You get these pitying looks from passersby who are clearly thinking, You poor soul.

8. They seem to think that driving like an idiot will impress you.

Lol OK, I will be seriously impressed from my grave.

9. If they're a passenger while you're driving, they will constantly point out that they are in fact a better driver than you are.

I hate when people complain about my driving like bitch you wanna walk ? I don't fucking think so. FOH

10. He always thinks he's right and knows best.


Which is kind of cute.

11. Even when you know for a fact he doesn't have a solid clue what the hell he's doing.

He'll pretend though, and that's amusing to watch.

15. Like when they finish and roll over to go to sleep because they think their job here is done.

16. You can literally be anywhere and all of a sudden your phone will beep and hey, dick pic.

18. Tell him you're sad? Hey, this dick will cheer you up.


Srsly, it looked the same the last three times you sent me a picture.

19. If you're watching a TV show together, you can bet your last pound that he'll watch another episode when you're not around.

The ultimate betrayal.

20. They think that romance can stop after the relationship has hit the three-month mark.

And that's if you're really lucky.

21. They start to care at the wrong point in the relationship – when it's finished.

You want to show interest after I put your ass to the curb? Tut.

22. But although some boys are a massive pain in the ass, they can be OK ~sometimes~.

Definitely kind of OK.
