8 reasons why you shouldn't give players a chance

We all know that guy. The one with the killer smile and sparkling blue eyes. The one who always seems to know just what to say to make ya melt in his hand. The problem with that guy? He’s dated more than his fair share of girls, to say the least. Here’s why steering clear of this cutie might just be the best thing to do.

1. He’s got a BIG mouth.

So you told him about that time you tripped while getting off your bus. Then he told his whole Spanish class. While it may be nice to have him talking about you, it’s not so nice to have everyone else knowing all about your private moments. Think about it: Do you really want those loose lips blabbing about your first kiss?

2. Other girls have tried to tame him—and failed.

OK, so maybe it’s not exactly your experience, but you can still learn from someone’s experience. 

3. His crazy ego.

OMG that ego! It’s hard to get along with someone who thinks they can do no wrong—even harder to date them.

4. Of course, there’s always that “Once a player, always a player” thing.

You’ve heard this one before, but it’s true and worth repeating. No matter how amazing you are (and you’re pretty awesome!), he will get bored and move on. Nothing personal—it’s just what players do.

5. He’s thoughtless.

Sure, he knows just what to say to make you feel special. But odds are, he’s said promise another girl a romantic date more than a couple times before and never actually followed through—or had any intention to.

6. He’s probably dated or tried to date one of your friends.

It isn’t fun to have to compare yourself to any ex—especially when there’s, like, a hundred of them.

7. He’s shallow.

Sure, he thinks your hair is gorgeous. But is he ever going to compliment, er, your shining personality? Probs not. Players are skin-deep, so unless you’re going to bond over each other’s beauty, it’s best to take a step back. Seek out someone you have more in common with, like that cutie on the debate team.

8. Let’s be honest: You’re amazing.

No girl deserves to be treated like another number on a long, long list. The bottom line? If he isn’t going to bother to put effort in, neither should you. Instead, check out a slightly less self-involved cutie.
