You’re constantly apologizing for his tool behavior.

So you’ve been having a little fun with a guy who’s totally a potential relationship prospect. No doubt about it.


Well, if you’re being perfectly honest with yourself, maybe you do question your go-to hook-up’s boyfriend abilities. Here are 35 signs he’ll only make for a great friend with benefits.

1. You’ve never seen him outside of his bedroom.

2. He doesn’t hang out with you before 10 p.m.

3. Dates? What dates?

4. You’ve watched at least 25 movies with him.

5. And by “watched,” we mean you glanced up at the screen every once in a while.

6. He only compliments your bod.

7. After hanging out with him, your eyes hurt from the brightness of daylight.

20. His partying is totally out of hand.

21. He tells you how awesome you are… in bed.

22. He celebrated your birthday by wishing you a good one on Facebook.

23. He’ll blow you off for video games any day.

24. He hides his phone whenever he’s texting someone.
