How To Turn A Montreal Fvckboy Into A Gentleman

I've written a lot of posts about Montreal fuckboys already. Yes, they're "forbidden territory" and it's probably best for you to stay away from them. However, if you're adventurous and up for a challenge, you might want to try and turn a Montreal fuckboy into a gentleman. It's like taming a wild horse.

Fuckboys' priorities revolve around booze, partying, swag and side chicks. However, it's nothing but a phase that most guys go through in their twenties and you can actually help them realize that there's more to life. Here's how:

1. Beware of newly converted fuckboys

You want to catch a fuckboy at the end of his fuckboy career. If he just got out of a serious relationship, had his heart broken and is now partying out of control to get over his ex - you might want to stay away from this type of scenario.

You'll find it much easier to deal with someone who has been a regular at Igloofest for a few years now. He probably got "the fuckboyness" out of his system and is ready for that change; he just doesn't know it yet. That's where you step in and guide him through darkness.

2. Make him realize that you're different

Fuckboys are used to dealing with "easy" females. Girls in their surroundings are open for business, if you know what I mean. Want to stand out from the crowd? Make him work for it. Be flirty, fun, easy-going, but don't jump into the bedroom right away.

3. Engage in activities other than partying

Go to the gym together, watch movies, have dinner dates... there are so many Montreal activities you can do other than getting drunk at a club. Make him realize that spending quality time together is more fun than his fuckboy lifestyle.

4. Hang out with other couples

You become who you surround yourself with. Stay away from his single friends who want nothing out of life other than to pop bottles and fuck bitches (excuse my language). Why not have a fun double date at Montreal's A/Maze instead?

5. Weed out his "bad friends"

Every fuckboy has 2-3 guy friends who want him to stay single, party and drink until he forgets his name. Most fuckboys lack leadership skills and, consequently, fall victim to "bad influences." You'll need to keep his "bad friends" out of sight, because, like the French say - "Loin des yeux, loin du coeur." So keep him busy, see each other often, take a fucking dance class together, do anything it takes to keep him from seeing his "party buddies." Eventually, he'll forget about them.

6. Meet his family

And make them like you. You want his whole family on your side. Even the worst fuckboy out there loves and respects his mother. If he doesn't, then dump him right now.

7. Be a lady

If you set an example and act like a lady, he'll have no other choice but to catch up and become a gentleman. Instead of telling you what a real lady is like, I'll tell you what she isn't like: you can read more about it here.

8. Stop the bad habits

If you can't cut it out completely, then at least try and do less drinking, smoking and partying altogether. Advocate a healthy lifestyle and you'll be amazed at how fast a seemingly hopeless fuckboy will turn into a dateable human being. It's so easy to be healthy in Montreal.

Whether you go vegan for the animals, the environment or your health (or all of the above) is totally up to you. You could also just choose to reduce your consumption of meat and dairy and that would be an awesome thing to do.

Dating can be hard, so hard in fact that people often blame their surroundings for the lack of romance in their lives.

You've no doubt heard at least one of your friends complaining that "All the guys here are so immature" or "All the girls in my area are too high maintenance."

Every time I talk to my girlfriends about my love life struggles, we always agree on one thing in the end - if we were born with male genitalia, we would make ANY woman fall in love with us in a heartbeat.

A lot of men these days only care about hitting home run, if you know what I mean. That's your number one mistake. You fail before you even get to start. Yes, obviously, you might succeed on a few or even multiple occasions, sleep with a bunch of women, break a few hearts... but, at the end of the day, it won't be very fulfilling. Karma is a thing, so remember to always be nice to people.

In my early twenties, fuckboys used to have a luring effect on me. I was attracted to them and found them good looking, mysterious, stylish. Until I actually got to spend time with one. It wasn't a serious relationship, we just went on a couple of dates. That was more than enough for me to realize that fuckboys represent a forbidden territory. That short and NOT sweet experience has taught me a few things that I'd like to share with you today. Perhaps it will help girls avoid falling for the wrong guys and learn from my mistakes.

I need to trust my gut instincts

When I met Joe (let's call him Joe), I immediately had that feeling in my stomach that he's not a good person. But I mistakenly confused that feeling for butterflies and thought, "Hey, maybe I'm feeling things for him. He's giving me butterflies in the stomach, that's great." Nope, that was just my gut feeling telling me to stay away from Joe.

I need to love myself

Dating Joe was a very short and insignificant experience that has taught me a lot about myself nonetheless. Being with someone who is not good to you is like punishing yourself for something. Why do women let men mistreat them? Because they forget how to love themselves. In other words, when you find that self-content within yourself, you realize, "Wait a minute, I don't have time for this bullshit. I deserve to actually be treated like a princess."

I should never settle

If I hadn't dumped Joe, I'm positive that we would have dated for a while. And I would have to deal with his endless "side chicks" (he actually used that word, ew!), lies and drama. As much as I was attracted to him, I knew that settling would be a huge mistake. Huge. So I didn't, even though a part of me really wanted to.

I need to keep my standards high

I hear a lot of men say, "Women don't know what they want." And it totally applied to me back in the days. Dating Joe made me realize what I didn't want in a man and that was a first step in the right direction. Today, I know exactly what I want. Yes, I have standards when it comes to letting people into my life and there's nothing wrong with that.

I need to grow up

My attraction to Joe was completely immature. A grown woman - that I like to think I am today - would never fall for someone like him. Maturity makes me value qualities other than looks and style. It's almost embarrassing to admit that I was attracted to someone just because he had a pretty face. That's as shallow as it gets.
