The Freshman’s Guide to Spotting a F*ckboy

The Freshman’s Guide to Spotting a F*ckboy


Freshman year is an exciting time. You start figuring out who are, what you want to be, and what kind of people you want in your life. However, your freshman year is not just about self-discovery. A lot of people will come in and out of your life during this time…and a lot of them might be college guys. They may seem fun at first, but some college guys are a hard no. We call these guys f*ckboys. These are the ones who seem to only think about sex, are immature, and are always bro-ing out. Here’s seven ways to spot one in the wild.

Every conversation always leads to sex

A dead giveaway a guy is not worth your time is when you can’t have a conversation without him bringing up sex or any sexual topics. Odds are this guy has a one-track mind. He’s not interested in getting to know you on a personal level. He just wants to get in your pants…or get you in his. If you’re interested in a guy, this sign might not seem like a red flag, but believe me, it is. If you’ve been dating for a while, it might be a different story; but if you just gave this guy your number and the only conversations you have are sex related, this is indeed a f*ckboy.

Conversations aren’t consistent

F*ckboys tend to ghost women they have little or no interest in. They may text or call you a couple of days in a row, but then go silent for a week just to text you again like nothing happened.

They’re selfish

The only time these guys are interested in you is when they are asking what you like to do in bed, otherwise, the conversation, and everything else for that matter, is about them.

Everything is “whatever”

F*ckboys usually care about very little. If they’re not truly into you, you’ll be able to tell by their lack of effort. You’ll find that you are the one who always texts them first, the one who initiates conversations that aren’t sexual, and you’ll be the one wondering why the two of you aren’t closer. If he’s not acting like he cares, he doesn’t.

They ask for favors without giving anything in return

Though it’s not always necessary to get a favor in return, it is nice. F*ckboys are masters at asking for favors without ever paying you back. If you do a guy a favor out of the kindness of your heart and notice he always flakes when you need something, he’s not worth it.

They don’t know what they want

Plain and simple. A guy who doesn’t know what he wants will play with your emotions for the entire year just to delete your number and never talk to you again without an explanation. Or maybe you talk on and off for a couple of weeks or months without ever determining where your relationship is headed, and when you bring it up, he always has an excuse for why he’s not ready for a relationship.

You see him flirting on social media

Maybe you don’t know what your relationship is for sure, but the sight of him sending flirty tweets and leaving flirty comments makes you a little bit jealous. Okay, a lot jealous. He’s been flirting with you, calling you beautiful, and wishing you could spend every day together, but when you’re not talking, he’s all over someone else on social media.

The signs are truly endless when it comes to spotting a f*ckboy. Your gut usually knows when something isn’t right. So, when a guy comes into your life and makes you feel insignificant while you are trying your hardest to make things work, let him go. You’ll thank yourself later for dodging a bullet.
