    Here Are The 11 Types Of Guys Everyone Dates In Their 20s

    The “Hi, I’m extremely hot and therefore you will ignore all of my bad traits until you just can’t handle it anymore” guy.

    1. The “treats you like a long-term partner but pees his pants at the mention of a 'relationship'" guy:

    You know this guy. He texts you constantly, calls you on his way home from work, has introduced you to a number of his friends, he's even met yours! And yet...the other day when you asked if you should call him your boyfriend he acted like you just asked him whether or not he was cool with the fact that you were about to give birth to seven babies right there at the dinner table. The jig is UP, dudes like this. Either google what the hell a "relationship" actually is, go to therapy, or do both. We're over it.

    2. The “won’t respond to your texts or make an effort to communicate with you but interacts with you on social media constantly” guy:

    THIS FUCKING GUY. First of all, how dare you? Second of all, we know you're on your damn phone because you just watched our Instagram story within five minutes of us posting it. So text us the fuck back. What is wrong with you? It takes five minutes!!! FIVE. MINUTES.

    3. The “definitely not good for you or your self-esteem but you think you can inspire him to be better and change” guy:

    There's always at least one of these guys in your life. They have barely any potential. They show you 1,000 different ways in which they are wrong for you. And you are, going over to his place again. He's not going to change. He's never going to be what you need him to be. It doesn't matter how great you are. And you are great. It's not you. It's him. Delete his number.

    4. The “emotionally unavailable but very good at cuddling and talks to you about his childhood a lot so you think he’s emotionally available” guy:

    Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed

    This should be illegal. And I already know what some of the comments will say. "Cuddling and talking about his childhood doesn't mean anything lol," but guess what? IT DOES ACTUALLY. IT MEANS A LOT. If all you wanna do is hook up and not make any sort of commitment then stop talking to me about your stupid blue teddy bear. I DON'T CARE.

    5. The “I need therapy so bad but I don’t know that I need therapy so I’m going to use you as my therapist until you literally can’t take it anymore” guy:

    Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed

    These dudes are the wooooooorst. They love to put their shit on you. They will do it again and again and again until one day you decide to try and do the same. So you're like, "Hey Jordan*, I'm having a bad day." And then he doesn't respond. And when he does, he changes the subject. He doesn't care about your bad day. He doesn't even appreciate the emotional labor you're doing by talking to him every day. So next time he texts you about his "bad day", tell him to text his goddamn therapist.

    *It's always a Jordan.

    6. The “Hi, I’m extremely hot and therefore you will ignore all of my bad traits until you just can’t handle it anymore” guy:

    Look, I get it. I do. These dudes come out of nowhere and you're left defenseless to their chiseled cheekbones. But the red flags are everywhere, and they can't be ignored no matter how good they look sitting across from you in the bar right now. I'm here to remind you that THEY ARE NOT WORTH IT. The way their arms look in that shirt is not worth it. The way in which their hair brushes against the side of their face is not worth it. Walk away. WALK AWAY!!!!!

    7. The “every time I invite you over to hang out and you think it’s just gonna be you and I, I also invite my friends and then it gets weird” guy:

    Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed

    This dude never wants to leave college. College is everything to him. He wants to live with his group of friends and drink shitty beer until 3 a.m. EVERY NIGHT!! So every time he wants to see you, he wants to include his friends too. Stop doing this. Spend two hours away from your friends, or DON'T DATE. CHOOSE ONE. IT'S NOT THAT HARD. SORRY FOR YELLING BUT ALSO NOT REALLY.

    8. The “everything is fine but for some reason I don’t feel fulfilled with this guy and I can’t figure out why” guy:

    Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed

    It's not their fault. They're doing seemingly everything right. They even brought you your favorite type of donut the other day "just because." But you don't get that excitement with them. You don't have butterflies, They're just there. And life is too damn short to not have any sort of butterflies. Let them go.

    9. The “really, really good in bed and really, really bad everywhere else” guy:

    Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed

    We all have a love/hate relationship with these guys. On one hand, yes, please continue to give us great orgasms. On the other hand, can you be as good in the rest of your life as you are at getting us off? Why can't we have it all? WHY????

    10. The “I have been ready to get married since I came out of the womb and I will marry you tomorrow if you say yes even though we’ve only been dating two weeks” guy:

    Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed

    SLOW. DOWN. Look, we know we're great. We know we're marriage material. We're the total package, etc etc etc. But also, what is the damn rush??? If I'm so great why don't you wanna enjoy actually dating me some more? Why do we have to rush down the aisle before I've even pooped at your apartment?

    11. And then the “you’re moving way too fast for me, I’m not ready for this, but I’m gonna dump you and then marry the next person I date within six months” guy:

    Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed

    Hey, dudes who do this, what the hell is wrong with you? Either you suffered a complete personality change in the span of mere months, or you didn't know how to communicate your feelings to us and instead told us what you thought we wanted to hear before getting engaged to Kelsey from your friend Tanner's wedding a mere two hours after dumping us. Get your shit together.
