What types of guys do you date in your 20's? And no, they do not look like the image above unless you are one lucky lucky girl! For most normal looking girls, the list of guys that we date is long and not always so pleasant to look back at... Lord know that some of my decisions in the guys that I have not always been a sight for sore eyes, tbh most of them I am trying to forget and some I have been successful in forgetting.
No, so for us normals, there is a list of guys that we date in our 20's... you might not date all of them but you will for sure be able to tick some of these guys off, unless you've been in a relationship since you were 16 and marry your high school sweetheart.
So brace yourself ....
The Good on Paper Guy: he is good looking, he has a good job, he is successful and he is polite. His sense of humour is so so and he is not very interesting but you are still attracted to him for some odd reason.. but that's not enough so... on to the next one.
The "We Should Have Stayed Friends" Guy: You might have been friends before, or the relationship just ended and you were stuck in a boyfriend/girlfriend situation but with only friendship benefits (not so fun)... if you were friends before, then tough luck, you probably lost a friend but if you weren't friends before you might have gained a friends... but then again friends with ex's = not a good idea.. and I am living proof.
The Older Guy: He might be 15, 20, 25, 30 years older than you. But he is older. You will be attracted to him and you will most likely pursue it. He will have many attractive features that you will like but you will soon realise that it is never going to go anywhere and when you're together you really are the 'little' girlfriend and people will probably think that you were hired or paid to date him... so dump him.
The "Plus One" Guy: He is nice, adorable and perfect to bring to all the events that require a plus one. But there is no chemistry between the two of you, other than the random drunken hook-ups and are instantly regretted... He seems like a good person and you look good together but you just don't feel that he is that dude for you... Life is so tough!
The 30-Year Old Guy: Oh hell no! These guys are bad news, well it depends if he is in his early 30's or late 30's. The dudes, yes DUDES, in his early 30's are just like the dudes in their late 20's. They are the ones that are non-stop quoting Drake and constantly saying or posting picture or stories on Instagram with the caption "I only love my bed and my momma, I'm sorry". He probably loves his mom, but his most certainly does not love his bed, where the sheets have not been cleaned in the past half a year and probably since the last girl who slept there with him... Gross! Just say Holla and throw him out!
The Player: These guys should come with warning sings, but they don't. You know he is bad news but he knows exactly what to say and when to say it to get your knee's to start shaking (or open up). He has mad skills to get you to do what he wants and get you to move his way, and when you blow him off or resist the temptation to reply to him will maybe be one of the proudest moments in your life.
The Possessive Guy: When you date him, you will basically leave everything and everyone you know behind. You will think that it is your own choice but really he is brainwashing you and all he really wants is to have to to himself and not share you with anyone. He will constantly want to know what you are doing and who you are with. Sooner or later your friends will intervene and shake you until you wake up and kick his broke a** to the curb.
The "Still Not Over His Ex" Guy: Small comments and mentions here and there until one day he starts crying in your lap about how much he misses her and how "those times" were the best of his life. K thx bye.
The "Always Busy" Guy": Between his job, riding his bike around the block, the tanning beds and sleeping he has no time for you. He is never around for date and never available to hangout... not even Netflix and Chill... You might get a text once or twice late at night, booty call warning. Ignore it. NEXT!
The "I'm Still Young" Guy: He is a child and will forever be one. He is the definition of Wiz Khalifa's song "Young, Wild & Free". He will think he is sexier than he really is. He will not like intimacy and will never share or listen to feelings. He will probably be single forever and will find himself living at home at 40... Not cool. Ditch!
The Fake Sensitive Guy: This is the guy that wears nothing but Abercrombie & Fitch hoodie and listens and preaches to any amount podcasts. He has a cute side smile but he is going to have some major rage issues and it will terrify you and you will run to the streets in search of your next "guy you date in your 20's" dude.
The Guy Who is Your Boyfriend: This is the guy who is head over heels for you and treats you like his queen and that you are untouchable, he is everything that all those other guys you dated weren't with all the extra goodness and a little piece of heaven. Even if this relationship does not last, you will never forget him. And he will have raised the bar for all the future guys (hopefully not that many) to come. *sobbing*
These are only 12 out of the millions of personalities that you will meet in your 20's, but you might be able to recognise a couple of them from your past. Hopefully you will meet the guy who is your boyfriend sooner rather than later, but all those guys can be fun to chill with as well, as long as it's not for too long!
