Fuckboys are evolving, and becoming easier and easier to fall for
Just one calendar year ago, there were internet users who didn’t know what a fuckboy was.
In December 2004 it got its first Urban Dictionary entry as “A person who is a weak ass pussy that ain’t about shit,” and since then the term has evolved into a archetypal staple common in the everyday speech of everyone from kids, to parents, to grandparents.
Everybody knows a fuckboy, and if you don’t that just means you are a fuckboy. But what we weren’t ready for was their evolution. Where have all the real fuckboys gone, and who are these seemingly normal men who have replaced them?
The fuckboy has evolved before, and he’ll evolve again, but the current status of the fuckboy is scary to say the least. They’re getting smarting, they’re getting easier to love, they’re getting politer, and I don’t know how much longer my heart can take this.
I think I’ve finally met my match.
Some random snapped me and asked if he could send me nudes, but he said please and may I. Fuckboys are evolving. Stay woke.

If I fell for your ticks before you said “please,” now there’s absolutely nothing setting off alarms in my head. It’s like someone said to them, “Hey, if you’re nice to the girls, they’ll fall even harder for you.”
But do not be mistaken. Fuckboys aren’t nicer, they’ve just gotten better at getting what they want. Their attempts are more thoughtful and calculated.
You’re supposed to exhibit all of the warning signs: demanding nudes, sending undesired nudes, texting “u up?” at 3 am.
“Wanna hang?” at 10 pm just will not do.
Some fella sent me a snapchat saying hey but the picture was of his tortoise, fuckboys are evolving they know what we want to see

Now I like you and I’ve told my mom about you. And She kind of likes you too. So when you inevitably do something to ruin this — they always do — I’ll tell her about that too.
And then she’ll hate you, and I’ll never be able to take you back again . . . But of course I will.

So here’s to the boys who still wait until 3 am to ask if we’re up. At least their half-assed attempts at getting ass aren’t veiled. But beware: Once one evolves, they all evolve.
How to actually have good phone sex without sounding like you’re in some sleazy commercial
For a good time, call me
by Natalya Grabavoy
Sometimes I like to imagine myself in a Jane Austen-era romance, waiting patiently in the pouring rain to receive a hand-written love letter by horseback. My beloved would live an unthinkable distance away (probably like 12 miles) and we’d have nothing more than these monthly notes to keep our love aflame. He’d say super hot,…
