These 10 Things Don’t Make You “Easy”, No Matter What Guys Say

It’s impossible to avoid being stereotyped. If you say or do the “wrong” thing, then others will make certain assumptions about you. They might even think that you’re promiscuous just by looking at your outfit, when that’s a word that’s not only misleading but shouldn’t exist at all.  If you like sex, then you might as well engage in intercourse as often as you can, as long as you’re doing it safely. Do what makes you happy, and stop wasting time wondering what others think of you, particularly men. These things might make guys think you’re “easy”, but if that’s the case, he’s not the one for you, anyway.

  1. You always have a drink in your hand. As long as you drink responsibly, who cares what others think about the flask in your hand? Life is meant to be enjoyed. If alcohol is the way you let loose, more power to you.
  2. You can’t go one conversation without mentioning sex. It’s healthy to have an open attitude about sex. If men are shocked by the fact that you’re comfortable saying the word “clitoris” in public, then they’re the ones that need readjustment.
  3. You leave the house without wearing underwear. Sometimes, it’s nice to feel the breeze between our legs. No one should be looking up your skirt anyway, so what’s the difference if you don’t slip into some underwear?
  4. All of your friends sleep around. Hey, the more your friends sleep around, the more silly stories you’ll get to hear. There will never be a lull in conversation, because someone will always have something juicy to say.
  5. You have a Tinder account. Come on, who doesn’t have a Tinder account? Online dating is nothing to be ashamed about, especially in this century. We’re all obsessed with the Internet, so we might as well do the convenient thing and use it to look for love.
  6. You’re always on a walk of shame. There’s no reason to sneak back home after a one-night stand when you could strut right past a group of people. Sure, they’ll be some men who will judge you, but you just had sex. You’re the lucky one, no matter which way you look at it.
  7. You’re on birth control. This doesn’t make you easy. It makes you smart. It means you’re a responsible woman who is dedicated to taking care of her body.
  8. You make the first move on men. Women are perfectly capable of making the first move, so there’s no reason for you to wait around for your crush to grow big enough balls to ask you out. It’s better to do the dirty work yourself.
  9. You flirt with everyone you meet. Flirting is harmless, so why would you stop yourself from batting your eyes at the hunky guy across the room? If you like him, let him know it. After all, the more guys you flirt with, the higher your chances will be of getting asked out on a hot date.
  10. You wear skimpy clothing. The length of your miniskirt has nothing to do with how many people you’ve slept with. If you want to walk around half-naked while there’s snow on the ground, do so with pride. Your body, your choice.
