I know the type of guy I want to end up with, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to find him any faster—and honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I think it’s important to experience a multitude of men before finding Mr. Right, so here are 12 types of guys I want to date before I meet my forever person.
The guy who gossips
This is the guy who teaches me how dramatic men really are. He talks too much. He tells his friends about our sex life and he has no problem broadcasting our fights on social media. He’s a Drama King and he shows me the difference between a boy and a man. A man doesn’t spend his time gossiping about someone he really loves, but a boy does.
The guy who loves love
He’s a nice guy but he’s also a hopeless romantic who loves the idea of love more than anything else… which is why he puts all his eggs in one basket. He wants to get married and have a family so he’s going to put all his time and energy into me. Even though I’m not the right fit for him long-term, he’s going to trick himself into thinking we’re meant to be.
The guy who can’t be tamed
Better known as the “bad boy,” this guy is reckless. He’s clearly running from his own demons but he’s having a ton of fun while doing so. He’s going to introduce me to people I would’ve never met on my own and take me to places I’ll probably hate. And even though this relationship will end in fire, I’ll have the memories.
The guy who makes me feel insecure
He’s not going to cheat on me or make comments about my physical appearance but he’s not going to give me enough attention either. He’s going to put his friends before me, he’s not going to call when he says he will, and he’s going to make me feel like I’m walking on eggshells throughout the entire relationship. I’ll spend most of the relationship overthinking his actions and second-guessing my worth.
The guy who starts off as just a friend
This is the guy I date right after I’m dumped by the guy I really really loved. He starts off as a possibility but then after a few hangouts, I end up putting him in the “just friends” category… until one night, after a few too many drinks and a dope vibe, we end up sleeping together and the friendship gets screwed.
The guy who seriously loves games
He’s the king of manipulation. Truly, he gets his jollies from messing with my head. He’ll text me every day for a week and then ghost me out of nowhere… only to send me a Snapchat of him out with his friends three days later. This kid is nuts and he knows it, but he just can’t help himself—he loves the game.
The guy I know I shouldn’t be with.
Maybe it’s because he doesn’t have a long-term career plan, maybe it’s because he has a bad track record, or maybe it’s because he’s my friend’s ex-boyfriend. Whatever the reason, I know I shouldn’t be with him but I’m going to choose him anyway because I’m bored in my life and craving some sort of drama.
The guy who’s still a baby
He doesn’t know what to do with himself. He’s so afraid of making a life-altering mistake in his life, that he refuses to take a chance on anything. He’s always nervous and panicky. He can never just do something—he’s got to spend hours going over it in his head (and talking to his mom about it) before he makes a move.
The guy who treats me like absolute crap
This is the guy my friends warned me about way before we started dating. He’s a douchebag, plain and simple. He’s rude to everyone but then there are rare times when he puts his walls down and transforms into a really nice and gentle guy. Those are the times I live for but they don’t last long.
The guy who puts me first
He doesn’t like me more than I like him. He likes me a normal, healthy amount. It’s just he has no problem showing his feelings. He tells me he likes me, he tells his friends he likes me, he makes plans with me almost every day because he knows the importance of putting his partner first.
The guy who’s too broke to date
This guy is some sort of artist or entrepreneur (or both). He knows what he wants to do with his life but he’s having a hard time putting his “master plan” into play, which means we’re going to spend more time at his house than at fancy restaurants. I’m going to have to pick up a few more checks than I typically would but he’s going to make me feel like the most special girl in the world.
The guy I see my future with
He’s not flawless but his flaws align well with my own. He gets me and I get him. Everyone who observes us says we’re perfect for each other but life gets in the way of our relationship and we start to pull away. We break up, but even when we’re broken up, we both know it’s not over.
