12 Signs You Know The Guy Just Isn't Right For You, No Matter How Cute He Is

12 Signs You Know The Guy Just Isn't Right For You, No Matter How Cute He Is

Time to chuck that pros and cons list.


If you're like me and you can't decide if someone is right for you or not, you make a pros and cons list. Nine out of 10 times, it's helpful. I decided to make things a little easier for the pros and cons list making individuals and comprise a list of signs that the guy just isn't right for you. It's hard to decide and you think that maybe you're overthinking or that you're just scared and trying to find flaws, but when it comes down to it, go with your gut.

He's not good for you if...

1. He doesn't make you laugh

Humor is SO important. What's a relationship if you can't joke around and laugh?

2. Your conversations don't have substance

Do you ever sit down and talk with someone for a while and then you sit back and ask yourself what did you just talk about? If the conversation is boring, your relationship is going to be boring.

3. He doesn't support your goals

Time to say "bye."

4. You don't get butterflies when you're around him

If you don't get that feeling in your stomach where you want to throw up, in a good way, he's not it. You want to feel excited and nervous and happy to see them and be around them.

5. He makes you feel smothered

Nobody wants to feel overwhelmed.

6. He doesn't respect you

Again, "Bye!"

7. He's a negative Nancy

We all need some positivity in our lives. Why be with someone who's a drag?

8. You can't truly be yourself around him

Be with someone who accepts you for you, completely. He's gotta accept your quirks and your spunky personality.

9. You don't get along with his friends or you don't like them

If his friends are jerks and he hangs around with not so great people, that shows what kind of person he is.

10. Your values don't align


11. He tries to impress you materialistically

He can buy you all the bags, jewelry, and clothes in the world, but if that's all he has to offer, he's not good for you.

12. You don't see him as a friend

If you can't be friends or don't have that friendship vibe with him, then that's not going to do any good for the relationship.

To The Boy Who Made Me Love Again

Thank you for loving me and showing me how to love myself.


To the boy who made me love again:

From the very beginning of our relationship, you showed me you were different. You showed me how I should be treated.

After dating someone for three years, falling in love was the last thing I wanted to do again. I did not want to grow close to anyone and fall in love with every little aspect of someone, but with you, it was so much different. You were different from other guys I had talked to. You have done small things for me that make me so happy. From offering to order me pizzas while I'm working to ordering me a key chain that says "drive safe," it's the little things you've done to make me love you.

During my previous relationship, I had come to a custom of pulling out my card to pay for dates and thought it was okay to accept the fact that good morning text did not exist. Every morning since we started dating, you never forget to text me good morning. We almost fight over who is going to pay, because I can't expect you to pay for every date. You have shown me what to expect in a relationship.

You never fail to make me happy. Whenever I say I'm hungry, you get me Mexican. When I want to watch Netflix, you immediately put on The Office. I can mention one thing I want and you buy it because you know it will make me happy. You give me forehead kisses and it puts a smile on my face. Whenever I am upset, you won't get off the phone until you figure out what is wrong and make sure everything is okay.

You make me feel beautiful. I can come over in leggings and socks and Birkenstocks or I can come over in a nice shirt and booties, but either way, you tell me I'm beautiful. Whenever I just wake up and look a hot mess, you look me in my eyes and tell me I'm beautiful.

You always tell me to be careful whenever I'm driving and you make sure to tell me you love me every night before you go to bed. You remind me of things I know I'll forget and you literally read my mind. You motivate me with my schooling and tell me how proud you are of me when I make a good grade.

I never wanted to date again and I especially did not want to fall in love; however, you are everything I dreamed of wanting. I am so blessed to have met you and fallen in love with you. So to the boy who made me want to love again, I love you and thank you for everything.
