The United Kingdom of Fuckboys: A very handy guide to every single one in the country

They’ll get you every. single. time.

Anywhere you go there are fuckboys waiting to ruin your life. What seemingly started as an American thing, has expanded to the UK and managed to reach the heights of Aberdeen and infiltrate the small British towns of Colyton and Featherstone.

Although fuckboys have now become a universal phenomenon, there are differences in how they’ll fuck you over, from one area to another.

The fine women of our country deserve better and we’re here to do them a service. So, we present to you the United Kingdom of Fuckboys, in fact file form:

The Essex Fuckboy

The Essex fuckboy will ask if he can give you a kiss at the most awkward time during a date. You’re at the restaurant, the mains have just arrived and then he’ll randomly go “give me a kiss then.” Bleurgh.

What they wear: Questionably tight ripped jeans and t-shirts that are way too small for them. White jeans to accentuate their tans. They also drowse themselves in aftershave, so that their smell lingers on – forever.

What they do on the weekend: Go to Club 195 or Faces, to stalk out girls he’s been DMing on Insta.

Deepest insecurity: Not earning enough money in their life to own a 4×4.

The Newcastle Fuckboy

These fuckboys are the last true relic of metrosexuality in Britain. Whether spotted around toon in the day or in Tup Tup, they’ll always have tall, well-groomed hair, a tan and threaded eyebrows.

On your date they will abrasively ask: “Do you spit or swallow?” It’s because, guys from Newcastle are sexually childish, always comparing how big their dicks are or measuring how long the sex lasted.

What they wear: Unheard of sports brands, with names like “11 degrees”. They also carry around a big carry on bag like they’re just off to Ayia Napa at any moment but I’m pretty sure they’re just popping to the shop. The ripped denim jacket is a staple.

What they do on the weekend: Going to the gym. Somehow it’s never leg day.

Deepest insecurity: Not pulling or having a penis that doesn’t measure up and everyone finding out.
