Dating can be hard. Sometimes I wish I could just fast forward to the part of my life where I am happily married with some kids and a dog. Although it sounds nice you have to experience the bad to get to the good.
Every person that you date is going to teach you something about yourself. Whether it’s something that you don’t like in them, or something that you learn about yourself that you don’t like. Dating is a way to experience who you want to be in life and who you want to share your life with. Although it can get extremely messy, it’s worth it when you find that person you want to spend the rest of your life with.
Here are 8 guys you have to date before you settle down:
The one going nowhere in life
He’s fun, he likes to smoke a lot of weed, and he makes your heart skip a beat. All that is nice, but he has no future. When someone has no motivation to better themselves, they’re not worth it. Yes, when you’re 16/17, it’s fine but once you are in your 20’s and you have a college degree and your partner is sitting on the couch playing video games all day, it’s time to leave them.
Yes. That bartender is super hot… but he has probably had sex with half of the girls in the bar right now. This is the super sexy guy that says all of the right things, he knows exactly what to say to get you in bed. And then it’s done. Trust me, the fantasy is way better than the reality when you think about it. You aren’t the only girl he played this game with, trust me.
The foreign exchange student
Someone different, they have something about them that you haven’t seen in other guys in America. It’s probably just the accent. Deep down most guys are the same, just because you add a fancy accent to it doesn’t make the outcome any different. It is nice to experience a new language and culture outside of your own though.
What’s better than being serenaded? Pretty much nothing, and he knows it. Musicians can be tricky because girls flock to guys that can play and instrument/ sing. Why? I don’t know, maybe it’s in our DNA, maybe we are just stupid.
The older guy/ younger guy
While it might sound super sexy in theory to date someone way older than you, it usually doesn’t work out. When you have a crazy age gap you tend to have different values. Maybe you’re still about that turn up life and they want to settle down, it can be complicated. On the other hand, dating someone younger can be fun too. Sometimes life is hard and you just want to have some fun.
The one that is way too into himself
Gym. Protein. Gotta make the gainz bro. We all know that one guy that is way too into himself and the gym. Yeah, he might be fun to look at, but he usually doesn’t have much depth to him. It’s hard to have a caring and compassionate relationship with a guy that looks at himself in the mirror while you have sex.
The Mama’s boy
We all know this guy. The one that is way too attached to his mother. Maybe living at home at 35 isn’t the most attractive thing? It’s sweet that he loves his mom, and that’s a very important quality to look for in a man. What’s not cute is the fact that she still cooks everyday for him, does his laundry, cleans his room, etc. You need a man, not a boy.
The “I’m not ready for a commitment” guy
This is the worst one of them all. They will lead you on into thinking that you have something special and then leave you because they “aren’t ready to settle down.” Just FYI this is usually bullshit, if a guy really loved you he would be ready to make that commitment to you. It’s dating, you’re not picking out Cemetery plots together.
