There he is at the bar – chiseled body, rock star hair, and a grin of pearly whites. He’s on his fifth drink and ordering another, checking out all the tits and asses that pass him by, like a true scoundrel shopping for his goods. You want him oh so very bad, and can we blame you? Falling in love with the wrong guy is just as easy as falling in love with the right one. Following these quick and easy steps, you too could snag yourself the man of your nightmares.

1) Spotting the gold. The wrong guy will usually be extremely good looking, and have a false charm that even an idiot could see through. In this case you’re the idiot, so you’ll convince yourself that his captivating stories and insights are 100% earnest and honest. When he tells a joke, you laugh at it. When touches your thigh after knowing you for five minutes, you pretend not to notice.

2) Reduced Self Esteem. In order to successfully fall in love with the wrong guy, you should reduce your self esteem by 85%. You should consider yourself to be completely worthless without this man. While you previously felt ambitious, strong and independent, it’s important that you change key character traits in order to make your relationship with the wrong guy work.

3) Lie to yourself. Falling in love with the wrong guy will require a firm commitment to lying to yourself and others about the reality of your relationship. Most likely, the wrong guy will be sleeping around with every slut in town and it will be up to you to convince yourself he’s a faithful chap. When he disappears for nights at a time for no reason at all, you must be reasonable enough to realize he is missing you always. When he forgets to call you on your birthday, he’s still totally in love with you.

4) Keep it private. When you’re busy falling in love with the wrong guy it’s important to never introduce him to trusted friends and family. Not only will the wrong guy be completely disinterested in meeting your inner circle, but his wrongness will be ever so apparent to your clan. When bragging about the wrong guy to your kin, you can always say “he just can’t way to meet you!” Now that you’ve mastered thee art of lying to yourself, it completely acceptable to lie to others.
