The dating landscape can be truly perilous.
There are guys who use photos that make them look like models, but when you show up, they are something else entirely.
Guys whose entire game consists of 3 a.m. text messages reading “u up?”
Guys who will go crazy on you when you tell them there’s no chemistry.
And, then, there’s another peril in the dating landscape:
If you spend any time swiping on Tinder, hanging out at parties or enjoying a night out in the club, you’ll eventually run into fuckboys.
Keep reading to learn what they are, how they waste your time and how to recognize them before they get their hooks in you.
Fuckboy refer to a guy you’d sleep with, but not one that you would ever want to date. He will pretend to genuinely care about you but will always fail to prove it.
The term “fuckboy,” sometimes spelled with an “i”, first made its way into public consciousness through the work of the rapper Cam’ron.
In earlier eras, the term meant someone useless.
A fuckboy was someone with few skills.
Fuckboys were especially likely to be lacking in traditional masculine skills and qualities.
They could not change a tire, hold a job or perform other useful tasks.
Calling a guy a f boy was a way for one man to tell another that he was unworthy.
However, over time, “fuckboy” started to be used more often by women.
From them, it came to refer to guys who were just looking for sex. These were often guys who would pretend to be interested in a relationship.
But they would only, in truth, be looking for new notches on their bedposts.
Slang is always evolving: “Fuckboy” gradually became “fuckboi” and the definition changed with it.
A “fuckboy,” was, at one point, that guy who was just looking to hook up.
But, the hookups have caught up and redefined both the guy and the word.
It’s known and understood that the fuckboy doesn’t want to put effort into a relationship.
This is a given.
However, it is also now recognized that no one in her right mind wants a relationship with him, anyway.
He’s there solely to be fucked.
While every person is unique, in a lot of ways, most fuckboys are the same.
These are a few of the characteristics that you may not be familiar with.
They are, nonetheless, common to fuckboys the world over.

You are not going to make a man out of a spoiled little fuckboy.

Let’s face it:
This is a guy who is never going to treat you right.
Money, gifts and time are always going to flow from the girl toward the fuckboy, and almost never in reverse.

Dick is cheap, but pussy is priceless.
You can get laid anywhere.
