“When we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.” That’s a quote you’ve probably heard before, because it’s the truth. Instead of searching for a successful businessman to date, you should be on the lookout for someone a little stranger. Here are a few reasons why you need to date a complete weirdo at least once in your life:

  1. The sex will be spectacular.If he’s weird on the streets, then he’s bound to be even freakier in the sheets. That means that you’ll never be bored in the bedroom, because he’ll always know what to do to spice things up a bit.
  2. You’ll laugh a lot.If you date a complete weirdo, then he’ll be able to make you laugh, even when you’re stuck in serious situations. We all claim that a man’s sense of humor is just as important as his looks, so it’s time to put that to the test.
  3. He’ll help you be more laid-back.When you date a weirdo, you won’t be stressed about every little thing. He’ll teach you to go with the flow, which will drastically reduce your stress levels.
  4. He’ll be unlike every other guy.A weirdo will be different than any other man you’ve ever dated. You won’t even be able to compare the two, because they’ll be like apples and oranges.
  5. He’ll make you more confident.Weirdos don’t care what other people think about them, and their mindset will rub off on you. That means you’ll stop questioning yourself so much and will truly be able to dance like no one’s watching.
  6. You’ll have interesting conversations.A weirdo won’t waste precious time talking about mundane things like the weather. He’ll initiate interesting, hypothetical conversations about what you’d do if you were the last woman on the planet or how you’d handle an apocalypse.
  7. You’ll always be entertained.If you date a weirdo, you’ll never be bored again. He’ll help the time pass by doing celebrity impressions and listing off useless facts.
  8. He won’t need drugs to have fun.If he’s truly weird, he won’t need to drink or smoke in order to have a great time. He’ll be just as silly without the help of alcohol.
  9. He’ll always surprise you.Weirdos will always keep you on your toes. One day, he’ll surprise you with a gag gift and the next day, he’ll surprise you with a bouquet of roses.
  10. You’re weird, too.We’re all weird in our own way. That’s why you have to find someone who will love your strange quirks as much as you love his.
