These Women Are Clearly Over The Games Men Play And We’re Here For It
Once upon a time, I was young and not yet jaded, and I might have been willing—maybe even excited—to participate in the mind games that men would throw at men. Now, I am so over all of it. The second a man shows any signs of manipulation or mind games, I am out of there.
Here are some memes that are all too relatable and will make you cringe if you’re sick of the dumb games that men play when dating.
I Swear, They Have A Sixth Sense
I actually think that men have a sixth sense that lets them know when you’re getting over them that makes them slide into your DM’s and try to make you fall in love with them again.
I’m not making the mistake of answering ever again!
It Really Be Like That Sometimes
Men will really listen to you unpack all the trauma and trust issues you developed after your last relationship, promise to treat you better, and then still manage to be so much worse to you.
The moment I see a red flag, you bet I’m sprinting.
Stop! Dating! Men! Who! Use! You! As! A! Therapist!!!
It was one thing when I was younger and I thought I could fix the “broken” man who came into my life and help him work through his issues.
I have a full-time job now and things to do. Please, just see a therapist.
Ghosting May Be A New Term, But It’s An Ancient Practice
I imagine there was one cavewoman who had a caveman promise he really liked her and saw a future with her, and then after she let him hit it, she found out he had moved to a different cave without saying goodbye.
What we’re saying is, basically, it really do be that way.
Stupid Boy Thinks That I Need Him
Here’s the thing: men’s juvenile tactics might have worked when I was in college.
Now, I have a roster full of interested guys, and if he’s going to act like a little idiot, I will just talk to someone else. Step up or get out, sir.
We Aren’t Putting Up With This Garbage Anymore
I am too old and far too wise at this point to tolerate getting 2 a.m. “wyd” or “sup” texts from guys who take way too long to text back during daylight hours.
I’m blocking his number the second I read it.
“I Don’t Want To Label” Is A Cop Out
“I don’t want to label things” is just a code for “I want to hook up with other women despite having all the benefits of a relationship” and I will not be falling for that trick ever again!
Not today, and never again, Satan.
Men Pretend We’re Crazy To Hide That We’re Right
The more a guy tries to make it seem like you’re being ridiculous and that you’re making insane accusations, the more likely you are onto something.
We’re all too familiar with gaslighting now and we will not stand for it.
No More Justifying Your Misogyny, Men!
Guys will be like, “Sorry I cheated on you with your sister and emotionally manipulated you for months, but when I was six a girl told me she didn’t want to hold hands and that really messed up relationships for me.”
Bro, if you’ve identified the source of your problems, try working on them. If you’re just using it as an excuse, use it on someone else.
Turn That Ego Down A Couple Notches
Why is it that men think that being moderately okay-looking gives them the right to treat women like garbage and never properly commit?
I don’t care—I’m not putting up with it. Grow up, dude.
We See Through You
Where’s the lie? What have I ever seen a man do apart from these four actions?
I’m starting to think that being a single dog mom for life is the better option.
Look In The Mirror, You Gremlin!
I remember when I decided to give the ugly guy a chance because he seemed nice, and then dating me gave him enough of an ego boost for him to cheat on me!
Dating ugly guys hits the exact same as dating hot ones but without the physical appeal!
The Bar Is Literally On The Floor
Men will do the bare minimum and expect to be thanked for it. They’ll literally just not screw up and expect praise for it.
We’re no longer taking that bar-on-the-floor behavior and letting them feel good about it.
Sir, I Know Your Intentions Aren’t Pure
A compliment from a girl is always so pure and really about making you feel good.
A compliment from a guy generally comes with an underlying agenda, and honestly? Gross.
We’re Deleting The Double Standard
Men will straight up be Shrek-looking, hairline receding, 5’2″ hobbits and still have the audacity to try and criticize women’s appearance.
If a man is going to hat-fish me from seeing his bald head, you bet I’m going to wear Spanx.
You Think You Can Hide Things? Oh, Honey
Men are so silly, thinking that they can trick women they’re trying to cheat with from knowing that they have significant others by changing their social media names.
I’m no rookie sir. I already have an entire employment history and background check on you.
Men Be Acting Like Millions Of Girls Want Them
There’s nothing like talking to a guy for a while only for him to decide that he could get other girls, so he says he doesn’t want anything serious. Once he realizes no one else wants him, he tries to slide back in.
Sorry dude, but I’ve moved on.
If He Only Contacts You Via Snapchat You Have To Throw The Whole Man Out
I once had a man tell me he likes to talk on Snapchat because he liked to “see my pretty face” when in reality he liked to not have any record that he was being shady toward a lot of women.
Men Love To Find Ways To Hate Women
Men will criticize a woman’s taste in music, the way she talks, and her spending habits, but will also drop $500 on bottle service to impress girls at the club and use dish soap to wash their hands all the time.
Like, if you absolutely must criticize someone, put some effort in on yourself first.
Basically, I’m On Max Security
Us ladies have been through way too much of men’s garbage to let anyone try to ruin us in the same way.
We’re protecting our hearts and only letting worthy guys in after they’ve proved themselves.
You know what? I am sick of saying things about women’s experiences and other topics pertaining to women and having men say dumb stuff and me to “debate.”
Sir, just shut up and listen for once.
Happens All The Time
It truly seems to go down that a guy will be interested in a confident girl and then get annoyed that she’s self-sufficient and doesn’t rely on his validation, so he tears her down.
Some people like to build, others are into demolition. Find yourself someone who’s gonna shore you up.
They Play The UNO Reverse Card So Fast
Ladies, raise your hand if you’ve ever been in a situation where you confronted a man about the ways in which he hurt you and he somehow flipped it around to be your fault.
It’s not your fault. They’re just manipulative.
Shut Up, Matt
Men really just want to brag about how tall they are on dating sites (as if they had anything to do with their height as it’s not their genetics), and then find a way to pin it on women.
It’s not a turn-on to be the object of your desire and the target of your contempt, bro. Tone it down.
My Favorite Part Of A First Date
It really is a common experience for me to go on a date and have the guy slowly realize I’m wittier than him.
From that moment on, he acts sullen and annoyed because he inherently doesn’t think women can be funny.
Babe, I’m The NASDAQ
It’s a joke, but it’s serious.
Men will spend tons of time in the talking stage with you and then wait until months later to let you know that they’re not looking for a relationship.
The funniest part to me is that men who love this movie tend to miss the point of it, which is that the behavior of the main characters is toxic and bad.
Allow me to repeat that in case you missed it: the behavior of the main characters is toxic and bad.
This Is A Pretty Wholesome Game
You know, of all the ways to seek revenge on your significant other when you’re angry at them, this has to be the cutest one.
She probably never even noticed, but he felt satisfied.
Sometimes There Are No Games At All
There have been times where some of my gal pals have thought a guy was playing mind games with them when, in reality, he had lost his phone in the couch for two days.
Never assume it’s manipulation when he might just be really, profoundly dumb.
At Least He’s Honest
This guy straight-up doesn’t respect women and would be the worst boyfriend ever, but at least he’s honest about that fact so this woman didn’t have to waste her time.
He really saved her a lot of time.
