The Guysexual guide to the other 25 boys not to date in 2016: Pick a prince, not a frog

There are a great number of great men in this world.

You can probably count them on one hand. In this haystack of hot men (or lack thereof), there are sadly, only a few shiny needles that you want to take back home. Unfortunately, the world is full of wrong men that you’d never want to see ever again, in a haystack or otherwise.

Is there a test that helps you sort out the frogs from the fresh-faced Prince Charmings? Not really, but if your potential playmate checks off any of the items of this list then it’s probably a good idea to leave him in the pond you found him in.

4. Uses more than one hash tag in a tweet.
#It #Is #Not #Cool #When #You #Talk #Like #This.

5. Has drunken stories from Tuesday night.
