Instead Of Getting Played By Guys, Join In On Their Game

Boys these days love playing a good game. It's what they consider "talking" now. So the question I want to answer is how to avoid being played and actually end up the winner of the game.

The most important thing to remember is to not trust all the words coming out of a guy's mouth because most of the time it's just diarrhea spilling it out of it. Guys find amusement in playing mind games with us girls and making us think their intentions are much more genuine than they really are.

To prevent getting played, you have to consider life one big chess game.

Know your next two moves ahead and your partners. That is vital to winning the game they love playing. For guys, if it isn't official, there's nothing stopping them from going out and dogging. A part of their game is making the girl see a future with the guy she'll be with him while he can dog.

One of my guy friends told me that he used to go to sleep at night knowing what's going to happen next and knowing the girl can't do anything to prevent what's going to happen next because they just don't know what's going to happen.

I had this guy over the summer who I thought would end up being my boyfriend but in the end, I just got played.

I expected those three months of flirting to blossom into something more but it ended up just being a summer fling. The guy made it seem like he really liked me, he even told me he loved me. But his words definitely didn't reciprocate his actions. He was leading me on the whole summer about us getting into a relationship just so I would blow every other guy off and just talk to him.

He played me really well, I'll give him that.

Do I regret it? Absolutely not, because it taught me so much and now I can be the coach in the game, not just a mere player or victim.

To play the game back is a complete mind game. You have to make the guy want you and make him jealous. You have to make him unable to sleep at night knowing you're out.

He will always think you're with other guys and that will mess him up mentally. Playing the game is something you have to really be mentally prepared for. You can't give up even if the guy tries something. Imagine you're about to get something from someone but right before it's handed to you, you say something and ruin it for yourself... How would you feel? Pretty stupid, right?

That's what you have to do to guys. Right before things go down you have to bring something up or say something that he'll have a stupid answer to which will kill the vibe of doing something sexual. This will lead the guy to go home feeling stupid and having the intention to hit you up to try again. This will put him in your pocket. You have to throw the guy off his game.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
