If you are a person who is attracted to guys, chances are good that at one point or another, this has proved itself to be a taxing endeavor. Perhaps your guy didn’t text you back. Maybe he did text you back, but in doing so, also asked you for nudes, or somehow maligned your makeup skills. Or maybe he just did that one infuriating thing that all guys seem to do–initiate a texting conversation for no reason in particular then, halfway through the conversation, appear to grow bored of you and stop responding altogether, also for no apparent reason.
Well, as a recent Internet trend seems to have discovered, this is all part of their plan. Lately, I’ve been noticing a lot of tweets that start with the line, “All guys want is ___.” Here, guys can be swapped for “boys” or “men” (depending on your mood and age, I guess), and the blank can be filled by anything along the lines of “to ruin my life” or “to break my heart.” Basically, according to this Twitter theory, guys have no specific desire–just a vague one to do all of the things that bring you great distress. So, what is it that guys really want, deep down at their core? We may never know for sure, but these posts all offer some great progress in the way of speculation. Check out these posts that show what guys seem like they really want to do:
1. I mean…this about sums it up, yeah:
