So, I totally understand the complexities of dating guys. I feel that some films have very clearly summarised and explored the necessary categories that guys can fall under. Please take a whirl through my list and find your guy/guy(s)!

Posted on

1. THE WANKER BANKER - THE WOLF OF WALL STREET (2013) - Martin Scorsese / Via


This is for every girl who ever dated that egotistical wanker banker. Margot Robbie who plays the role of Naomi Lapaglia (based on Nadine Caridi) is possibly THE hottest female character in a movie. She embodies that feisty female we would all LOVE TO BE when your banker boyfriend becomes too cool for school and cheats, steals and lies. YOU GO MARGOT!. This type of girl always wins!

2. THE FLAKE - SEX AND THE CITY, TV-SERIES AND MOVIE (2008) - Michael Patrick King / Via


Mr Big is possibly the most annoying man to watch on our screens. He strings along Carrie for years, telling her he will never marry and commit. BUT...OH WAIT!... When a stunning younger brunette who works at Ralph Lauren (Natasha) comes along all his commitment phobias fade away and Carrie is left in alone and heartbroken. LETS WATCH AND LEARN- If you want to wait 12 years for the flake guy to finally WANT YOU then sure this is great but who really wants to be second best to the perfect girl. NOT ME !

3. CLINGY LOSER - 500 DAYS OF SUMMER (2009) - Marc Webb / Via


OK so everyone wants the cute guy, but sometimes too cute is too much! This film shows how some guys are just too clingy and quite frankly borderline creepy! Tom (Joesph Gordon-Levitt) is obsessed with Summer (Zooey Deschanel) who is just SO clearly not that into him. Tom believes their bonded love of mocking IKEA furniture ideals and The Smiths band means that they are destine for one another. Tom simply epitomises a guy who needs to get around a bit more - just face it summer is JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU! However, it is nice, for once, to see a male character playing the pathetic role rather than the female - so... go TOM !

4. FRIENDLY LOVERS - DRINKING BUDDIES (2013) - Joe Swanberg / Via

Obviously this love/friendship would have to take place in a craft beer brewery because already Kate (Olivia Wilde) is a super hot, pool playing beer expert with a hot as hell face, making her all the more attractive! (I wish I liked beer and pool). But fear no! she has a few flaws. Her wanker banker boyfriend becomes attracted to a plane Jane type so she is left heartbroken. Her hunky best friend (drinking buddy) comes to the rescue! Luke (Jake Johnson), falls in love with Kate. We have all been friends with a Luke, the good looking guy who is your best friend but you just can't imagine getting with him because hes just like your "brother". But in the end these two make the cutest, beer drinking, hippy funking couple we all wish we could be- PERFECT!

5. CUTE GINGER - ABOUT TIME (2013) - Richard Curtis / Via


Since Ron Weasley we have all had a little crush on gingers :p About Time is one of those films that reignites your ginger love! Gingers are usually not seen as sexy or hot but, I am sorry, they are! Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) has the ability to time travel in About Time and as per usual Rachel McAdams is the love interest. In About Time McAdams plays Mary, a young American girl living in London (Cliche!). Tim stops at nothing to make Mary his, his charm and wit eventually enable him to get that beautiful (non-ginge) girl. Tim is the perfect guy for Mary as he is totally British, as in Prince Harry style British which is what makes him totally adorable. But when Mary and Tim have babies... their cute kids are also ginger. You work it out. If a ginger guy is your lover then I totally get why!

6. DRUGGED UP LOVE - REQUIEM FOR A DREAM (2000) - Darren Aronofsky / Via


This is definitely a teenage/early 20's stage of life. You take a load of drugs and reflect on life, as if your both philosophical thinkers and your great minds think alike. Your THINKING that this Oxbridge graduate is the one because he's taught your more about life than your philosophy teacher ever did! BUT NO PEOPLE this is called being high on drugs and watching a load of trippy documentaries. The relationship seems so right but it's actually SO WRONG! Requiem for a dream is obviously an extreme version of drugged up love. But if your not careful your drug fuelled mind may encourage you to marry your druggy lover. Best advice about this relationship = LEAVE. BUT, be sure to take a load of pictures to reflect back on when you married to a boring person :)

7. LONG DISTANCE - LIKE CRAZY (2011) - Drake Doremus / Via


Like Crazy explores the heart wrenching ordeal of a long distance relationship. The entire film was filmed as an improvised acting piece so the actors really encourage you to imagine what it would be like to actually be in a long distance relationship. Jacob (Anton Yelchin) and Anna (Felicity Jones) meet whilst studying in America but their relationship is cut short. Anna must return to London as her visa is running out. The two decide to end their whirlwind relationship and date other people. Anton cannot seem to leave Anna behind and the constant phone calls, butterflies and memorabilia of their love truly encapsulates how we all feel when we miss someone LIKE CRAZY! finally their love is put to the ultimate test as with all long distance relationships - Who will stay and who will go? This movie is ideal if you whimpering over your ex. CRY.

8. 8. THE DAMAGED ONE - THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES (2012) - Derek Cianfrance / Via


Well...well...This guy is pretty darn annoying. You are ALWAYS trying to change this guy and yet he never... ever will change because he is damaged! The point is that you love him for his flaws but these flaws are the very thing that will pull you in and push you away simultaneously. Even when your tucked up in bed you will still wonder "hmm I wonder what THAT GUY is up to?". Ryan Gosling plays Luke in The Place Beyond the Pines and has a passionate but short relationship with Romina (Eva Mendes). He is a tattooed stunt biker and she is a diner waitress (obviously). Over time, Luke finds out he is the father to Romina's baby and subsequently he tries relentlessly to CHANGE. As Romina begins to fall for her stud again, he makes the same mistakes. Luke's rebellious attitude is passed down to his son for another girl to endure. "It's not me. It's you" applies here.

9. THE PSYCHO - AMERICAN PSYCHO (2000) - Mary Harron / Via


Just as you think everything is going smoothly this guy comes along and rocks your world (in a bad way!). You will have lots of ups but a hell of a lot of downs. You will think he's being cute and then he will smash your mirror because you gave him a soya latte (WTF). This my friends, is the psycho guy! The worst part of it all is that nobody else see's the psycho in him - it's just you! Just like Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) in American Psycho, your psycho guy will push the boundaries, because, he believes he can get away with anything! Just like Patrick Batemen who kills numerous women the psycho guy is capable of just about anything. I mean... don't get me wrong, it's a thrilling experience dating the psycho guy. However, keep it as an "experiment", because... THIS GUY IS A PSYCHO

10. THE GUY - P.S. I Love you (2007) - Richard LaGravenese / Via


Your mum hates him, your friends are jealous and nobody can make you laugh as much as this guy - because he is THE guy. Just like Gerry (Gerard Butler) in P.S.I Love you THE GUY is someone you least expect to meet, on a rainy day, after a break-up or when you look your least attractive. That's because your not looking and THE guy sweeps you off your feet and makes life great! Although P.S.I Love you has a tragic story line we are still able to appreciate the greatness of Gerry's love for Holly (Hilary Swank), he encourages her to peruse her dream, find greatness in the world around her and mend old relationships. Basically THE GUY will do whats best for YOU and always put you first, encouraging you to be the best version of yourself. FIND THE GUY PEOPLE!
