I, like many other women, am attracted to men, but dating one can be such a struggle. Dating men puts you in a world of gaslighting, poor home decor, and general disappointment.
However, is there any better way to deal with disappointment than to laugh about it? These are women making jokes about their struggles while trying to date men.
Hatfishing Is A Real Issue
Men sometimes say that women wearing makeup is like they’re catfishing, but have you ever liked a man until he took off his hat and revealed that he didn’t have a hairline?
They Don’t Even Need Directions There
Men don’t need a GPS or anything: they’ll roll into your life, mess with your emotions, and leave you a total wreck and in desperate need of therapy after they leave.
Wonder Why A Person Would Get That Idea
You will be spending all your time together, meet his parents, go on dates, and have him introduce you as “his girl” when you meet his friends, and then act confused when you think he’ll date you.
I Want To Wash My Eyes With Bleach
On one hand, I want to date a man. On the other hand, in the process of trying to find one you want to date, you have to meet and talk to a bunch of guys who say stuff like this.
Just Change The Names For Every Girl
One moment, you think a guy made a special playlist based on your personality and tastes, and the next moment, you realize that he just changes the name on the playlist every time he meets a new girl.
The Imbalance Is Staggering
I am genuinely shocked by the number of gorgeous, brilliant women I know who are dating guys who look like the rat from Flushed Away. I’ve genuinely never seen the opposite happen.
I, Too, Have Been A Foster Girlfriend
As a woman, you can spend months or years dating a guy, teaching him basic emotional intelligence and acting as his therapist, only for him to dump you and marry the next girl he sees.
They Invite You Over To Chill In Rooms That Look Like This
Being invited over a man’s house is kind of terrifying because there’s a 50% chance that their apartment only has one chair, a TV, and a bedsheet over the window instead of a curtain.
Being Faithful? Who’s She?
I’m not saying that men are always unfaithful or that women never are, but I will say that men will act like “temptation” to cheat is so hard to overcome.
I Can’t Let My Friends See Me Like That!
After all the things I say about not wanting to date men, I can’t just run around dating one where all of my friends can see me going against my previous statements.
I Never Want To Shower At A Man’s House Again
You’ll go into a man’s bathroom and the only products he’ll have are a 3-in-1 body wash, shampoo, and conditioner; a sliver of a bar of soap; and a bottle of Dawn dish soap.
My Favorite Place!
I’ve had different guys take me to the beach, a vineyard or two, the bowling alley, and a couple of nice restaurants, but the one they all took me was for granted.
It’s The Reddest Of Flags
If I meet a man whose first instinct is to ask for my Snapchat, I already know that there is no future there. All there will be are requests for nudes and gaslighting.
My Posts Should Be Liked No Matter What
I don’t care if I tweet “I hate men and I never want to see one again,” I still expect the guy I’m with to like it and maybe even retweet it.
If Only I Had Known This Sooner
At this point in my dating life, my love language is simply being treated like an actual human being and having my feelings considered. Truly, the bar is on the floor.
The Theory Rings True
You’ll find out a couple broke up and the guy will tell everyone that she was crazy, while the woman will tell you that she just wanted him to text her back in a reasonable timeframe.
This Is My Mental State At This Point
Listen, I have been let down too many times to just trust a man at this point. Sorry to the next dude I date, but you’re going to need to prove yourself a billion times before the trust will kick in.
Get Your Prescription Ready, Men
While you’re at it, I would like you to see the ways in which you could work on yourself, the effect your actions have on others, and also maybe see a therapist.
Rihanna Made Some Points
I get that I am still single as well, but I often choose not to date men, whereas I’ll run into other exes of guys I’ve dated and, as women, we bond over each man’s disappointing actions.
Then Again, Women Also Can Be Difficult
Putting aside that “you’re not like other girls” isn’t really a compliment, I know that I can be a bit demanding and irrationally angry about things from time to time. It’s balance.
