Just a little disclaimer before I begin: “foxboy” is a euphemism and sounds like something else a little more sinister. Replace the first “o” with a “u” and you got it. To those of you out of the dating game, it may be an unfamiliar term, so let me start by defining it. A “foxboy” is a man (or boy) who seeks relationship-type perks without relationship-type responsibilities, meanwhile taking advantage of the woman’s emotional attachment towards him. It’s the world of dating in 2016.
We all make choices, and a foxboy always leaves us for last even while we put him first. He’s the guy who makes excuses for why he can’t hang out, why he didn’t call you back, respond to your text, or why he won’t take you out to dinner or introduce you to his friends. He’s the guy you’ve dated sort of regularly who keeps some but not all of his promises. He’s inconsistent, but riding the alternatingly high and low roller coaster is precisely what keeps you and your emotions hooked.
A foxboy lives by his own rules with little compromise. He wants you but he doesn’t want to commit to all of you. He makes you laugh and he’s fun, seems to enjoy spending time with you, but only on his terms. There’s always an excuse for why— his job, his family, his friends, perhaps other women— the point being that you are never his priority. He doesn’t necessarily mistreat you and he certainly likes you somewhat, but he treats you mediocrely. And yet it makes you think that with time, or when that excuse is over, foxboy will surely realize you are DA BOMB and fall recklessly in love with you.
But that doesn’t happen, and that won’t happen— not with you. Because foxboys, although they may not necessarily be “bad men,” nevertheless are men that aren’t ready. And when a man isn’t ready, the queen of the world won’t be able to sway him otherwise.
So how do you get rid of a foxboy? You just let him go, cold turkey. Forget the hope that he will chase after you— he won’t. Chock it to your life experience account and let it go. It’s 2016; let go of the foxboys and instead focus on a man who finds you foxy, girl.
