Why 🤔 do We Fall 😍 for Douchebags 🖕?


I was recently texting my long distance BFF and we discussed that I should start blogging about my interesting encounters with dating, some tips I’ve picked up along the way, and ways to make the best of it.

Now dating is exhausting. I get it. Try living in south Florida with a dating pool full of, excuse my french, “f**kboys.” Now, who am I to offer any kind of insight being a 24 going on 25 year old still having much to experience. But hear me out.

Now I’ve listened to podcasts and heard my friends' sob stories about how they can’t find a man because they all “suck,” “the good ones are taken,” “I’m better off alone,” etc etc. All the while still hoping to somehow magically run into their Prince Charming while at the supermarket?

As much as we’d like the “perfect” guy to bang on our door it doesn’t just happen overnight. Getting to the point, let’s talk about a specific type we all know and yet still manage to get tangled in their manly web of lies. Douchebags.

My first boyfriend was one. He opened my eyes to the whole dating world and after three attempts with him, I came to my senses and was brought to the ultimate conclusion that I DESERVED BETTER. I should not have been pushed to the side when he felt the overwhelming need to see his friends or play sports, then maybe in his “spare time” remember that he had a girlfriend. Not defending myself, but I was a lovestruck teen and didn’t really know anything about dating. So, what is it we like about these guys?

1. They Evoke Confidence

They know the right things to say to make you feel beyond special, only to realize later on (and frankly when you’re already in too deep) that they’re in fact, egotistical or insecure, or even worse, a combination of the two.

All They Want is You
