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.

I'd Rather Be Single Than Settle – Here Is Why Being Picky Is Okay

They're on their best behavior when you're dating.

Dating nowadays described in one word: annoying.

What's even more annoying? when people tell you that you're being too "picky" when it comes to dating. Yes, from an outside perspective sometimes that's exactly what it looks like; however, when looking at it from my perspective it all makes sense.

I've heard it all:

"He was cute, why didn't you like him?"

"You didn't even give him a chance!"

"You pay too much attention to the little things!"

What people don't understand is that it's OKAY to be picky when it comes to guys. For some reason, girls in college freak out and think they're supposed to have a boyfriend by now, be engaged by the time they graduate, etc. It's all a little ridiculous.

However, I refuse to put myself on a time table such as this due to the fact that these girls who feel this way are left with no choice but to overlook the things in guys that they shouldn't be overlooking, they're settling and this is something that I refuse to do.

So this leaves the big question: What am I waiting for?

Well, I'm waiting for a guy who...

1. Wants to know my friends.

Blessed doesn't even begin to describe how lucky I am to have the friends that I do.

I want a guy who can hang out with my friends. If a guy makes an effort to impress your friends then that says a lot about him and how he feels about you. This not only shows that he cares about you but he cares about the people in your life as well.

Someone should be happy to see you happy and your friends contribute to that happiness, therefore, they should be nothing more than supportive and caring towards you and your friendships.

2. Actually, cares to get to know me.

Although this is a very broad statement, this is the most important one. A guy should want to know all about you. He should want to know your favorite movie, favorite ice cream flavor, favorite Netflix series, etc. Often, (the guys I get stuck on dates with) love to talk about themselves: they would rather tell you about what workout they did yesterday, what their job is, and what they like to do rather than get to know you.

This is something easy to spot on the first date, so although they may be "cute," you should probably drop them if you leave your date and can recite everything about their life since the day they were born, yet they didn't catch what your last name was.

3. How they talk about other women.

It does not matter who they're talking about, if they call their ex-girlfriend crazy we all know she probably isn't and if she is it's probably their fault.

If they talk bad about their mom, let's be honest, if they're disrespecting their mother they're not going to respect you either. If they mention a girl's physical appearances when describing them. For example, "yeah, I think our waitress is that blonde chick with the big boobs"

Well if that doesn't hint they're a complete f* boy then I don't know what else to tell you. And most importantly calling other women "bitches" that's just disrespectful.

Needless to say, if his conversations are similar to ones you'd hear in a frat house, ditch him.

4. Phone etiquette.

If he can't put his phone down long enough to take you to dinner then he doesn't deserve for you to be sitting across from him.

If a guy is serious about you he's going to give you his undivided attention and he's going to do whatever it takes to impress you and checking Snapchat on a date is not impressive. Also, notice if his phone is facedown, then there's most likely a reason for it.

He doesn't trust who or what could pop up on there and he clearly doesn't want you seeing. Although I'm not particularly interested in what's popping up on their phones, putting them face down says more about the guy than you think it does.

To reiterate, it's okay to be picky ladies, you're young, there's no rush.

Remember these tips next time you're on a date or seeing someone, and keep in mind: they're on their best behavior when you're dating. Then ask yourself, what will they be like when they're comfortable? Years down the road? Is this what I really want? If you ask yourself these questions you might be down the same road I have stumbled upon, being too picky.. and that's better than settling.

5 Reasons Why I Don't Want Kids

Procreating. It's not for everyone.


My cousin had a baby last August. She's absolutely beautiful and I love her to death, but she doesn't change my mind when it comes to wanting kids when I'm older. Truth is, I don't want kids. I'm sure everyone says this at some point in their life, and maybe I will change my mind in the future, but kids kind of freak me out.

Maybe I'm just not the most maternal person, but here's why having kids, at least for now, isn't on my bucket list.

1. Giving birth.

I know, I know, it's a beautiful thing, the miracle of life or whatever, but go watch a birthing video and then come tell me how beautiful it really is. Everything from a woman's water breaking, to actually giving birth just grosses me out, to be honest.

The thought of having to push something the size of a watermelon out of something the size of a lemon is just absolutely terrifying. I have a pretty average to above average pain tolerance, but no matter how well you can deal with pain, that shit is obviously not a pleasant experience.

2. The responsibility.

You have to do everything for babies, literally everything. Feed it, dress it, wash it, change it, put it to sleep, and you have to know what a baby wants when it wants it. If I had a baby and it started to cry, I would have no idea what to do. I know plenty of people say that once you have the baby, you automatically know which type of crying is for what need, but that makes no sense to me.

Do babies have different types of cries? How do you know which is which?

I consider myself a pretty responsible person when it comes time to be accountable for myself, but to be accountable for another life form?

I'll put it this way. I have two pet turtles. We got them when I was about twelve or so years old, and I remember being obsessed with them. That lasted for like maybe two weeks, and then I got bored with them, which meant I didn't take care of them. My parents did. Not the best analogy for obvious reasons, but I'm sure you understand what I'm trying to say. In other words, if I can barely take care of a pet, how would I ever be able to take care of a small human?

3. Kids are messy and loud.

Look, I'm not like a total clean freak or anything like that, but my mother definitely is. She used to disinfect sticks so my sister and I could roast marshmallows when we went camping for Girl Scouts. My point is, it's been drilled into my brain that everything has to be wiped down clean, and germs are not my friends.

I hate being around sick people; they freak me out, especially since I get sick so easily. If my baby or child were to get sick, I'd obviously still have to take care of it, which means wiping snot, cleaning vomit, and getting coughed on. I guarantee you, as soon as my child were to get better, I'd get sick.

Don't even get me started on changing dirty diapers.

Also, if there's anything I've learned from my cousin's baby thus far, it's that babies put everything in their mouths. Any object on the ground, their hands, and feet; nothing is safe. Babies don't understand sanitation, so it's not their fault, but I just know that if I had a kid, it would be in a plastic bubble so it could remain as clean as possible.

Babies are also very loud. Back when I worked at a diner, we used to have customers with little kids and babies all the time. If the kid was unhappy for any reason, that child would scream its head off. I never understood how such a big noise could come from such a small human.

4. Kids are expensive AF.

Kids are not cheap. They have an entire laundry list of stuff that needs to be bought for them, and they run out of supplies frequently. I can't imagine how much money people spend on things like diapers, formula, and clothes. Speaking of clothes, babies grow out things quickly. You get one or two good uses of an outfit and that's it. They outgrow it, and they can no longer use it.

Then, as they get older, you've got to think about school, eventually college, and extracurricular activities that they want to do, gifts for Christmas and other holidays. I say all of this, realizing how much my own parents have spent on me and my siblings (thanks, Mom and Dad).

5. Raising kids looks hard.

Knowing how much my sisters and I were pains in the asses for my parents, I can't imagine having to deal with that crap myself. The whole idea of shaping a child into a fully functioning member of society with good morals and conscience sounds like a lot of work.

There have been so many times where I would be at work and I'd have to deal with customers that have their kids with them, and these children are the biggest brats I've ever seen. Rude, disrespectful, obnoxious or disruptive; just the opposite of how kids should act in any public setting.

A big part of the reason I wouldn't want kids is that I see other people's kids and the way they act. It makes me just want to yell at the parents. At least I know that if I do ever decide to have kids, they'll be raised the way I want them to be and they'll behave the way they're supposed to. Appropriately.

In the big picture of things, whether or not you want kids is up to you. It's not meant for everyone and that's not the end of the world. I always get told that I don't mean it when I say I don't want kids, which isn't that big of a deal, but it can get annoying. In my opinion, if a person says they don't want kids, it's not because they think kids are like some evil being or anything like that. It's because they know their limits.

Growing a family is an amazing thing, but it's also different for everyone. No one should be judged for not liking or wanting to have kids. Everyone has different opinions. This one is just mine.
