Who exactly is a F**kboy?

Sometimes, you can love a man so much that a lot of things he does tend to look normal to you even when they’re abnormal. Therefore,  In other to spot a f**kboy, you need to be smart, intentional and look out for some key signs.

Here are some common behaviors and traits that people associate with a “fuckboy”;

Men that belong in this category normally avoid talking about the future or being in a committed relationship. This can manifest in various ways, such as not being fully committed to spending time together, not making future plans as a couple, or not being willing to make sacrifices for the relationship. 

When your partner lacks commitment, it can lead to a lack of trust and stability in the relationship and can eventually lead to its end. 

It’s important for partners to have open and honest communication about their feelings and commitment levels to ensure the health and longevity of the relationship, but if this is not happening in your relationship then oops! You might be dating a f**kboy.


2) Poor communication

If that guy doesn’t communicate effectively with you or frequently avoids telling you things about him, then you need to be worried because communication is a key component of a healthy relationship. 

Good communication can help to build trust, resolve conflicts, and deepen the connection between partners, but f**kboys are vague and always avoid communication altogether.


3) They are players 

My sister, do you need anyone to remind you of running when you see a player? Players have a reputation for dating multiple people at once or leading people on, hence, it’s no surprise that they’re also popularly regarded as f**kboys. 

So if that guy is giving you signs that there could be another woman around the corner, you already have your answer.


4) Insincere compliments 

Insincere compliments can have negative effects on relationships, so watch out sis, because f**kboys tend to do this a lot. Oftentimes, this is intentional, and it can lead to distrust, undermine your self-esteem, and reduce the authenticity of the relationship. 

If you’ve been receiving a lot of dishonest compliments from your partner lately, or you feel some sense of manipulative intent, then it could be time to have those difficult conversations in order to find out their real intent with you before you decide to call it quits or not.


5) Self-centeredness 

The right guy would never make you feel unvalued. Rather, he’ll try as much as possible to put your needs and desires at the forefront of his thoughts. F**kboys on the other hand do not care, they prioritize their own needs and desires over others.

A partner that is not empathetic right now, may actually never be. If your partner only cares about themself, that’s a bad sign, and you need to be worried.

  • Fear of vulnerability
  • Blame-shifting
  • They avoid conflicts

In the event that you’re married to such a person, let your partner know that you feel hurt by their behavior and disrespect. Understand the reason behind their behavior and work with them. If they are ready to rectify their mistakes, it is fine. If both of you have issues coming to a common ground, then consult a marriage counselor
