The 7 Types of Boyfriends I've Had, And Why I Stopped Dating Them

1. The brainiac

I dated this one guy who was extremely smart. He graduated top of his class and got accepted into Harvard. The problem I had with dating him was that he concentrated too much on his studies and paid no attention to me. He also thought he was intellectually above everybody else.

2. The gym rat

When I was in college I dated a guy who was too much into himself and not into me. He was always constantly flexing and looking at himself in any mirror he walked by. My problem with dating him was that he always was constantly weighing out his food and going to the gym. He was more infatuated with himself then he was with me.

3. The lacrosse player

I dated this club lacrosse player at my college. He wasn't that bad really; he was friends with a lot of frat guys so we got to go to a lot of frat parties. My problem with him was that for some reason he would always need to bring his lacrosse stick with him and constantly stress about games.

4. The bookworm

I found this gem at my local library. He was really cool and laid back, nothing ever bothered him but that bothered me so I ended up breaking up with him.

5. The artist

He came off as brooding and mysterious so I guess that's what pulled me in. He wasn't much of a talker and was constantly sketching. My problem with him was that he gave off a dark and disturbing vibe.

6. The criminal

Yes, I dated a criminal and I guess the reason I did it was because it gave me a thrill and appetite for adventure. Of course my problem with him was that he got arrested and sentenced to a few years in jail.

7. The stoner

I met this guy at a college party he was hot and older. The thing I liked about him was he gave off a bad boy type vibe kinda like the criminal I dated, but less intense because he wasn't a hardened criminal; he just liked to be rebellious and break the rules. Also, I never smoked growing up because it was forbidden in my house so I guess being with a guy who didn't give a fuck and smoked turned me on. My problem with him was that he wasn't going anywhere in life. He lived in his parent's basement and drove around in a shitty car.

Let me know what you think and if you've ever dated any of these types or can relate. I would really appreciate it.

    As for the last one, stoners never go anywhere in life. It's a standard rule of thumb.

      My boyfriend is a chemist for the UK army, and also a stoner. So I disagree.

    That's weird... how is a guy being calm and not letting things phase and rattle him, somehow considered a bad thing?

    Seems like the common denomimator here is that you throw yourself at men who you probably already knew were preoccupied with other things and then get mad that they either won't give up whats important to them or completely change their personalities to give you attention because you're needy.

    There is a type no girls ever date, The Gentleman. You notice them after he get married and get kids. Well this is life and women will always complain about men and men complain about women, nothing new.

    So it looks to me from #1-3 that you have dated people who have no sense of balance and get caught up in their work. #4-6 give me the impression that you are really just looking for drama. Given those, I actually suggest hanging out with #7 and learn to appreciate going nowhere for a short amount of time. Maybe learn to not expect other people to give meaning to your life and find some meaning in your own. Pot can help you do that and help you learn to sort out the bullshit for what it is. Then you'll be able to deal with #4 and #5 and you'll find #1-3 to be too silly to bother with.

    I had a similar thing with a girl. She was kinda a stoner in highschool and her friends were to and one friend had a baby in highschool. But come the end of highschool she ended up going to college for a great program. A program very similar to my personal one. So seeing that wild side but the ability and smarts to go to college and not screw around was crazy attractive!!!

    Good take - I try not to put people in types and just date the person - As you say these issues may develop as relationship deepens but I wouldn't discount a type, you may meet one that might change - Anyway you might have a subconscious red flag watch going on so you probably wouldn't initially date a person that displays the qualities of that type - I have never sworn off a type but I probably have a latent bias.

    the problem is you wanted all of them to change for you, you didn't like the way they are cause you always thought you deserve better than them...
    women are lazy they would search for a new man rather than giving him a reason to change, you must know that a man won't change him self unless the girl is really special or he thinks she is the one ! so your reaction was the best cause apparently they were not that much interested or moved by you :)

    • 1mo

      ?
      The idea is to realize that there's going to be some issues with anyone and you want to make sure the things you like about them outweigh the negative before starting a relationship

    You need to date a farmer. That'd work

    Some of those are really shallow, silly reasons to break up. Like, you broke up with one guy cause nothing bothered him, and another cause he carried his lacrosse stick around? O_______O

      watch DanDoesData. He built a self driving car model live on Youtube (the driving model, not the car) and his workflow is amazing. One terminal for interactive Python, a normal file for code to be saved and a web browser to look things up.

      I will add that if you actually want to learn then watch Sirajology, sentdex or Howard's CS50 class which is filmed like a gameshow.

    You really don't seem like the type of person a guy should be dating at all. You literally broke up with someone because nothing ever bothered him? Not enough drama to satisfy you, drama queen?

      @Gustafsone12584 What are you even talking about? You're making assumptions about me that probably don't even apply and you aren't being clear about what it is that you're saying.

      So please, if you're trying to have a discussion explain what it is you're assuming about me, if not then this conversation isn't going to go anywhere because I have no idea what you're saying.

    I dated a guy that only wanted me for sex. Ended it with him quickly.
    And I briefly dated the "I can't make up my mind" guy.

    I can't say I can relate to many of these, as I've only dated two guys that didn't really fit into these stereotypes. I dated one guy who was literally so obsessed with video games that he never wanted to leave the house and still to this day lives with his family and has no job or car, and another who just wanted everything his way and wouldn't compromise for anything. Both deal breakers. I definitely don't think that I should be the center of attention or that everything should be my way, but I think that when I could never see my first boyfriend outside of school (where he was forced to put the video games away and go) because he literally ate, slept, and breathed video games, or when there was absolutely no compromising with the second one and everything had to be 100% his way, that is ridiculous. I'm more than fair and put up with well more than I had to from both of them.

      I don't know why this cut off. I'll just continue it here:

      ... when the second one had to have everything 100% his way with no compromise at all, that that is just ridiculous and where I draw the line. I was more than fair with both of them and put up with way more than I had to.

    I dated a country/rebel guy. The care free attracted me. He cheated and ghosted me. Now I am talking to a sweet but protective guy, dream guy.. he's ghosting me too. Smh. I guess I'm meant to be single for a bit. Good luck girl.
