Guys You Will Meet Based On Criminal Minds

13 Guys You Hate To Meet IRL, Profiled As The Cast Of 'Criminal Minds'

We've all met a Derek Morgan before.


We've all met him. A guy that gives you a few red flags here and there, but we ignore them because we assume he's having a bad day or something only to find out he's actually a psychopath! From out of left field they freak out on you over the smallest thing, and any sort of attraction you had turned into disgust and even a little fear. Can I block this guy and hope he doesn't stalk me on campus? Will he freak out and DM my friends demanding to know where I am and why I'm ignoring him?

"Criminal Minds" has taught me and countless other viewers many valuable life lessons, and in particular how to read people based on their words and their actions (or inaction). While I love the men both past and present of "Criminal Minds," each one has their own set of red flags, and represent men that girls hate to meet.

1. Derek Morgan

We've all met a Derek Morgan at some point in our lives. He's suave and charming which makes him all the more irresistible. It's hard to know whether a guy like this has good intentions, so we try to look through his charms and see what he is really after.

2. Spencer Reid

The sweet but totally awkward dork next door. He lacks the social skills to really talk to anyone, but mostly girls. We dread those awkward encounters with this guy. It's hard to talk to a Spencer Reid because they inadvertently make it clear that they're way smarter than you in every which way, except social skills.

3. Aaron Hotchner

So. Very. Serious. A guy like Aaron Hotchner never smiles and seems like he's never let loose a day in his life. He's all about work and never puts you first. While you admire him for his passion for his career, you know you can't be with someone who will never make you a priority.

4. David Rossi

A David Rossi is someone abrasive, saying whatever he wants without care of hurting anyone's feelings. A guy like this could come at you disrespectfully in a text message just to simply ignore the things he said the next day after sending that good morning text. He's not a very emotional guy, he leans towards the intellectual side of things, like Hotchner. A guy like this will not be into any sort of PDA and will not want to do cute couple things, which can be discouraging.

5. Luke Alvez

He's a simple man, not for being extra by any means. This guy probably won't be the one to take you on extravagant adventures or expensive restaurants. In a sense, simplicity is great, but there comes a point where every girl craves a bit more. This kind of guy she can't seem to figure out since there isn't much for her to go off on in terms of figuring out who he is.

6. Jason Gideon

A Jason Gideon is a reserved intellectual who will give you long, complex answers to questions that you don't need more than a few words to answer. This kind of guy will want to debate constantly and has no problem telling you why you're wrong and he's right. That can get very old fast.

9. The Psychopath

This guy will have his charm turned up to ten, yet feel nothing for anyone, so he's great at manipulation. This guy knows very well he's going to hurt you and does not care. You may think you've formed a long-lasting connection for life with him, but he can cut you out as if you never existed. They feel nothing while you feel everything.

10. The Sociopath

This guy is much less charming and more human. He angers easily, and cannot do anything callous because he forms meaningful connections. This guy is spontaneous and physically aggressive and often has family and work issues. He's not the kind of guy who's family you want to meet and being around him is being around a loose cannon.

11. The Arsonist

This guy is mischevious and loved to do things that'll give him a rush. He'll likely want to take you to vandalize an abandoned building or set something on fire just to watch the flames. While he seems to get a rush doing this, you don't.

12. The Cult Leader

He demands obedience and feels as if he is a gift to society. He is arrogant, and expects special treatment for the special boy! How people see him is very important. He will always be his own priority, and you will not matter to him, especially if you don't do as he says or believe in his cause.

13. The Gangster

This guy will not keep his ego in check, and that will result in issues keeping friends. He wants power and will use fear as means for achieving it. He will try and scare you into respecting and listening to his demands, and likely will not be loyal to any woman he romantically invests in.

Thank You To The Person Who Made Me Feel Like I Wasn't Enough

Because you hurt me, I'm happier than ever.

To the person who made me feel like I wasn't enough—thank you.

Thank you for always making me feel like I had to try harder. You taught me how to never give up. I needed you, or I thought I did, so I fought and fought for you even when I was well past the point where I should have given up. But I never did. So you showed me just how far I can push myself before breaking. For that, thank you again.

Thank you for fighting with me. Because you fought with me, I learned how to better pick my battles. That's so important to know in life. Battles that aren't fought aren't lost; they're just not worth the fight. Since you, I've become more level-headed and understanding. I'm more mature about issues, and believe it or not, sometimes I'm actually right. So thank you for showing me that not every fight is worth it.

Thank you for the good times. When it was good, it was great. But when it was bad, it was awful. It can't be denied that we had a good time whenever we were together. The laughs, inside jokes and planning our future. It got me prepared for my life now. It helped me realize that I can share so much about my life with someone. It gave me the confidence to fully be me with my new relationship, and he accepts that. Thank you for allowing someone else to experience my life with me.

Thank you for letting me love you. Loving you was emotionally exhausting. I loved and loved and loved, hoping that maybe one day you would return it all, and you never did. But since I loved you with all I had, it proved to me that someone someday would be able to return it. I love better now, with no limitations; just freely, because I finally found someone to return it. You loved me when I was mad at you, when you needed me for something or when you were guilty. It was never just about us. Thank you for showing me what love isn't about. Because of that, I can love my person endlessly.

Thank you for cheating on me. Whoa, never thought I would write that sentence. You hurt yourself, and of course, you hurt me, but you made me strong. The sentence always replays in my head: "I cheated on you; I don't deserve you, but you will find someone who does."

You were right. You do not and never did deserve me. And you were right again—I did find someone who does. Because of you, I'm not as weak. I don't break as easily. And I stand up for myself now. Yes, you made me insecure because somebody I invested over a year of my life into threw it all away without good reason. But I'm so thankful you did. I had to learn to get up and love myself. I had to have the strength to smile through the pain. Since then, I couldn't be happier. I learned to love myself, and in the process found someone who loves me more than that. He sees my flaws and loves me anyway. He understands me. He accepts me for who I am.

If it wasn't for you, I would have never experienced hurt. But if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be where I am today. Thank you for making me. I loved the idea of who I thought you were, but I could never really love you. I planned a future in my head and tried to fit you into it, but you were too scared of commitment. All I had to realize the whole time was that God had already planned my future, and it was without you. He gave me the person my future was planned around. And strangely, it looks a lot like the one I had planned in my head ... except in this one I'm smiling.

Newsflash! It's Time For Everybody To Love Everybody

Come on, people, get it together.


I, personally, think it's time for everybody to just start loving each other. Now listen, this doesn't mean you need to actually love everyone, but at least accept them. Acceptance is the closest thing we are gonna get to loving each other.

Let me tell you a little something: politics at the moment are very messy. No matter which side it is, it's messy. There is no denying that. If you try to deny that, then good for you, you're not helping anybody. If you really want some change, you need to start being the bigger person. Change isn't about who can yell about something louder or who has the "better" argument, it's about being respectful.

Just because someone has an opposing view does not mean you need to yell at them. Does yelling solve anything ever? Maybe temporarily, like for 2 minutes, but that's about as long as you're gonna get. There's absolutely no need to indirectly say something about certain individuals on social media. Yes, there is freedom of speech, but everybody should keep in mind why they have that right and why they still have it.

I do not understand why it is so hard to be respectful of one another. If someone goes after another person talking about how absolutely terrible it is of them thinking something should be illegal, the person who's being yelled at should respectfully ignore the other individual's disrespectful remarks. If the individual does not stop, then they are not aware that they are making no difference in the world.

What I'm trying to get at here is that in order to love each other, we really need to accept all our differences. If we really want change we need to go right to the sources, not just yell at each other from across the street. If everyone learned to accept each other, life would be a whole lot easier. Is this ever going to happen? Of course not. This is the solution though, whether you think so or not.
