Love is arguably the most beautiful emotion felt by humans around the world. It's an emotion that heals, reconciles, excites, births new relationships, and creates hope for the future — but in my case, it almost destroyed me.

Up until two years ago, I had been in relationships but nothing quite like this. No one is perfect, and some of my exes missed the mark in significant ways, but this guy, my ex, took the cake.

How can someone who presented the picture of the perfect man turn out to be the monster I came to know? What was the purpose of the pain, emotional abuse, and neglect? These were the questions I kept asking myself — why me?

It seems life had to teach me some lessons so that in time I could share my experiences so that no one else would have to go through what I went through.

And so it is settled. Without a doubt, I dated a fuck boy, but how can they be identified before they do more damage?

1. Lack of tact and empathy.

Also known as having low emotional intelligence, I discovered this key trait in my ex, which reared its ugly head now and then.
