“I’ll call you again when I’m back in February,” I smiled at Celia as I put on my coat at her front door, ready to face the snowy December evening outside.
“Congratulations,” she shot back with faux indignation. “You’re now officially a fuckboy Tom.” We kissed once more and then the door closed behind me as I walked out into the Paris night.
On the train home I Googled the term “fuckboy”:
“A man who sleeps with women with no intention of dating them”
Synonyms: asshole, horny prick, douchebag, jock, chach
Some men want to send rockets to space, others want to win an Olympic gold. I’ll take the badge of being a fuckboy.
In December last year during my hibernation period away from cold approach daygame and my distractions with the documentary editing I went on short trips to see four girls that I’d already got the notch with earlier in the year. All of them are aware that I’m not wanting a relationship and that the sex with me is casual. Two of them read this blog.
There’s Celia, a girl in Paris whose husband works away as airline cabin crew. Then there’s Victoria, a girl in Poland who is in a long distance relationship with a guy in Spain. There’s also Maria, a Ukrainian living in London who’s spinning more plates than me. And finally Sylwia, another Polish girl who tells me she’s “kind of serious” with a guy at her university.
Going from girl to girl in just a few days, I felt like a call-out tradesman visiting each one to service them. It was comical, like an old movie with Charlie Chaplin appearing and disappearing in and out of opening and closing doors.
I found an article on a womens’ gossip magazine webpage called “15 Signs You’re Dating a Fuckboy” written with the purpose of warning girls about ‘fuckboyism’. Here are some of those signs, which every pickup artist should nod and smile at as he reads them…
- He asks you to hang out but doesn’t text you to follow up
- He uses phrases like “keep me posted” and “let’s stay in touch” when you invite him to come out
- His friends don’t seem to know who you are
- He’ll disappear for a few days without you hearing from him
- When other guys flirt with you in front of him he seems totally unfazed
- He’s always texting people when you’re together
- He won’t respond to you during the prime dating hours of 7-11pm
- He’s never initiated taking a picture with you
So there you have it. Your mother is going to be so proud when you tell her that your New Year’s Resolution is to become a fuckboy rather than a Nobel Prize winning author or an upstanding member of your local church group.
