Women Joking About The Pain Of Dating Men, Because Laughter Is The Best Medicine

Sometimes, when a tragic situation is totally out of your control, there’s nothing left to do but to laugh about it. Anyone who has been in the dating world has some frustrations they could vent about, and that’s exactly what these women have done.

Since When Are You The Expert, Sir?

Trust me, dude, if a woman could just decide that she didn’t have to have her period anymore, she would have done it already. I don’t know how you thought you could change anything.

What Was On The Playlist, Though?

My opinion of this man could be swayed severely based on what exactly was on the playlist. Was it songs women love, or was it a dirty playlist? Honestly, since he’s a frat boy, it was probably the latter.

It Really Do Be Like That Sometimes

Here’s the thing: every time a guy has told me that he loves that I’m confident, intelligent, etc., he later either tries to make me feel like I’m not, or he resents me for it. I hate it here!

Every Matt’s Profile Is Like This

A dating profile is supposed to be used to distinguish yourself from other people around you, but I swear, every single man named Matt has this exact same profile and also does not particularly like adventures.

The Group Chat Shows No Mercy

Men, do you know how embarrassing it is to show you to our friends in the group chat? Men’s Instagram profiles almost always just have a few blurry pictures with the boys from 2015 and our friends think we’ve lost our minds for finding them attractive.

Funny How It Works Like That

Guys will say things like, “You’ve been acting really weird ever since I told you that I don’t think you’re ‘wife material’ and also mentioned I want to hook up with your best friend.”

In What World Did He Think This Was Appropriate?

This man really saw this woman trying to spread awareness about the tenuous position of international students, and his reaction was, essentially, “Oh no, don’t get deported, you’re so sexy aha :)”

I Mean, “Man” Is In The Word…

As a man, what’s your love language? The options are “not communicating on a regular basis,” “gaslighting your partner,” “making your partner feel insecure about herself,” and, last but not least, “manipulation.”

This Is My New Mindset

i'm NOT arguing with a STRAIGHT man!!! go use ur 3-in-1 shampoo and shut up!

What will I get out of arguing with a man I’m dating? His point of view thinly veiled as him playing “devil’s advocate”? Him dismissing my feelings by saying, “I just don’t get it”? No thanks.

Come Over Here, Corpse Boy!

I don’t know what’s wrong with my body and brain, but I’ll meet a hot, kind man who is perfect on paper and feel nothing, but I meet a guy who looks like he woke up hungover in a dumpster and I’m totally *heart eyes*.

This Was An Evil Tactic

the crazy ex girlfriend trope was invented by men so they never have to be responsible for the ways they traumatize women

Men will tell you that their ex-girlfriend was a total psycho, so you’ll ask them what she did that was crazy and the answer will be that she asked him to communicate.

Riddle me this: why have the worst parts of my life been, not the moments following my breakup, but the month before it actually happens? Men really take me to my lowest lows.

Talking About You, Jason!

I don’t know what it is about men with J names, but I swear they somehow manage to be the worst. Their ability to destroy the lives of the women they date is so unique and terrifying.

They’re Constantly Lowering The Bar

everyday I think men can't get more bottom of the barrel but they find new ways to tunnel straight to hell

Never tell yourself that things can’t get any worse, because I swear that the universe takes it as a challenge to find a new way to ruin your life even more.

Yeah, What’s Up With That?

Women will talk about their husbands, saying things like: “He’s so supportive, handsome, and good with the kids!” Men will talk about their wives and say things like, “She’s my ball and chain! Marriage is a prison!”

You take them into your home, teach them how to live domestically—tell them how often to wash their sheets, buy them jeans that fit, help them put up curtains—and then they move on to their forever homes.

Some men will really go out of their way to justify their garbage actions, like saying that they were possessed by an evil demon and that’s why they cheated on their girlfriend with her sister.

The New Testament And Old Testament Are Ruined For Me

Don't date a guy with a Bible name. can't even read the New Testament without getting mad

When I was majoring in English in college, I had to do an extensive group project about the Bible, and I truly winced at about half the names I read because they reminded me of men.

In the future? I already feel regret about the fact that I am attracted to a man and am considering being genuinely emotionally vulnerable with him. This is a disaster in the making.

Can’t Wait To Elope!

If I am ever in a relationship again, I’m going to wait as long as possible to let people know the guy exists. We’ll have a secret wedding. My parents can meet him after the birth of our second child.
