A Poem For A F*ckboy

A Poem For A F*ckboy

Because we all have one.

Players. We all know one, we've all been there. In this day and age especially there's quite a number of them out there. Dating has now turned more into a hookup culture, bringing the best players to the field. I've known too many friends that have been burned and have heard too many sob stories about being screwed with, mine included. For some reason, it's just really easy to be sucked in and led on by these people, and for long periods of time too. I could be using that time and energy to study (more likely nap and watch Netflix). Personally, I'm sick of all of it, so obviously, the healthy way of dealing with my feelings is to turn them into a poem and post it publicly, right?

Roses are bright red,

Violets are dark blue,

I do regretfully admit,

that I was very into you

It honestly was hard not to be,

with your charisma, looks and smile,

the confidence and jokes threw me off,

You had me hooked for a good while.

But that’s the danger isn’t it?

Things aren’t always as they seem,

It took me a long time, but now I realize,

that what you gave me was a scheme.

I really did have hope,

that maybe you were different from the rest,

I would’ve never guessed you’re a player,

and actually the best of the very best.

A cheater and a liar,

a wolf under sheep’s clothing,

that’s what you are, aren't you,

now do you understand my loathing?

I’m not the first girl you’ve done this to,

And I can guarantee I won’t be the last,

So listen closely my dear fuckboy,

to these final words about our past.

I am not sad, depressed, or hurt,

Oh no, I’m fed up, angry, and done,

The chains on my mood swing just snapped,

So you better turn and freakin run.

From each time you led me on,

to every time you kept me tied,

screw you and all your acting,

and for all the times you lied.

You think you’re high and mighty,

you think you’re smooth and slick,

I think we can all agree though…

you’re compensating for your dick

To all my women out there,

that are trapped by a player’s lies,

take a second and finally realize,

you’re heading to your demise.

I’m sick and tired of all you players,

trying to make more scores on your list,

so take some advice, listen close,

please ram your face into my fist.

You’re a boy pretending to be a man,

trying but failing to pull of this feat,

we women deserve someone much better,

not someone who treats us like meat.

Please get it through your head,

that girls don’t want your sad, shallow bit,

we want someone genuine, kind and smart,

not the human manifestation of shit

So goodbye and fare well,

I’m kicking you out the door.

Here’s my warning to my fellow ladies,

that you’re a massive man whore.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

When Everyone Around You Is In a Relationship And You're Still Single

You might feel pressure to start a relationship, but reconsider...


I'm not sure how or when exactly it happened, but it suddenly seems like everyone I know is in a relationship. While I'm happy for them, it can be kinda...depressing. Nauseating. Exhausting.

It builds slowly at first: the subtle side-eye you give your friend as they're on the phone with their S.O., the little pang of jealousy you get when your cousin posts their engagement pictures on Facebook, the way you feel when your Snapchat Stories are full of people on cute dinner dates.

Suddenly, it's a Thursday afternoon and you just snapped over an Instagram post of your friend and his boyfriend on their anniversary. We've all been there. I may or may not be there currently.

The worst advice you can get when you're feeling down about not having an S.O. is "Don't worry! You'll find someone!"(Especially when it's coming from someone in a happy relationship).

I'm here to give you the actual advice that you (and I) need to hear. You do not need a relationship to be happy, satisfied, or whole.

Here's the truth: you're gonna be just fine without a relationship. You are young. You are educated. You are ambitious and have your whole future ahead of you.

You are a complete person on your own who does not need another person to validate you or make your life worth enjoying. I'm not saying a relationship can't be satisfying and fun. I am saying that being in a relationship is not the end all, be all of happiness.

If you are spending your time waiting for a relationship and looking for it in every person you meet, you can end up missing out on so much of your life. Instead of being jealous of every couple around you and being bitter that you can't seem to find the "right person," try figuring out how to enjoy spending time as an individual.

You will have more time to devote to exploring new interests, developing new skills, and meeting new people. Your social, emotional, and mental wellbeing will become priorities.

Plus, just because you aren't in a relationship or looking for a relationship, that doesn't mean you won't have romantic/sexual experiences. You can still go on dates and develop relationships with people you are attracted to without the pressure to turn it into a serious relationship. Once you remove that expectation from your mind, you might even find it easier to meet, talk to, and connect with people.

When you stop focusing all your energy and hopes onto being in a romantic relationship, you open the door to new experiences, opportunities, and people. Most importantly, you are able to refocus and recenter your life around growth as an individual, which will lead to a healthier and more solid basis for any future relationships.
