There are a number of things I would rather do than deal with fuckboys. I'd rather stick a hot burning coal down my pants, for example. Shove a shiv into my eyeball is another. Dealing with fuckboys is, quite possibly, the worst thing one will have to do in their lifetime. But how? How to deal with fuckboys?
I wish I had one solid answer for you. I wish that I could snap my fingers and make those fuckboys disappear or be less of a fucker but I cannot. What I can do, however, is give you some ideas on how to deal with fuckboys.

Many of these methods are tried and true whilst some of them are a bit more untested but necessity is the mother of invention and is there anything more necessary than new tactics to deal with fuckboys? I think not.
This might seem like the ~obvious~ answer but ignoring problems usually works…. just kidding. Well, in the case of fuckboys it does. If you ignore them, eventually they'll turn their fuckery onto someone else.
Fair warning: ignoring them won't help you get closure so if it's closure you seek, ignoring them might not be the best option for you.
Quite the opposite of ignoring them. Overwhelm them. Quadruple text them. Tag them in memes. Send them links to your wedding board on Pinterest. Snapchat him twenty times a day. Tell him you can't wait for him to meet your parents.
Texting guys "What are we?" all summer '17 so they leave me alone.

Go full Fatal Attraction on his ass and it will have him running for the door. If he wants to play games with you then you're going to play a nice little game with him.
Play their game
If they want to play mind games with you, then fine, but he needs to learn that you're fucking Jigsaw, bitch. Any game he can play you can play better.
Text him back days later. Leave him on read. Like other guys' Instagram posts. Open his Snapchats but don't respond. Post Insta stories with cute guys. Make him think he's nothing more than the dirt on the bottom of your flats.
Give him a taste of his own disgusting fuckboy medicine.
Call them out
Text them and let them know that you're over their bullshit and they can't treat you the way they've been treating you. They'll feign innocence and try and defend themselves but it won't work. They're a fuckboy through and through.
This might not be super effective but it sure as shit will help you get some closure and feel better about yourself and the predicament you've found yourself in.

Just kidding. Don't do this. It's illegal.

It’s been a long, unfunny year
by Caroline Phinney
Twitter is an exceptional place, offering an unparalleled variety of content to users in a ~sometimes~ fair and balanced manner.When they aren't banning women for speaking out against Hollywood, they're actually pretty good about leveling the playing field, giving a voice to all users. Because it's a written medium and nobody can talk over anyone…
Every girl knows a Harvey Weinstein, and we want to expose yours
We’re done with sweeping it under the rug
by Caroline Phinney and Amanda Ross
By now, you’ve read all about the avalanche of accusations against powerful men in Hollywood. All week, we’ve heard stories of harassment, uncomfortable encounters, groping, inappropriate comments, and full-on assault. But the truth is, we all know someone like Harvey Weinstein. A powerful man who uses his influence over a community — and you –…
Frida Kahlo is not your mascot
She’s not your synonym for wokeness either
by Roisin Lanigan
You might know Frida Kahlo as the Mexican artist who was groundbreaking for her surrealist work, her openness around taboo topics like disability, stillbirth, female autonomy, and bisexuality, her socialist politics, her traditional dress sense, or just for her frankly beautiful paintings. But let’s be honest, this is 2017, and you probably know Frida, or…
