Dating is a minefield. Dating in Sydney, Australia, however, is a whole different kettle of fish. Simply put, the city is full of woods. This has been proven time and time again, with some of the most recent evidence coming from TikTok user Abby Elizabeth, who informed others of certain messages she received on dating apps, which included the classic “Je won’t tell my girlfriend. ”
This is enough to embarrass the good guys (if they weren’t already living in a permanent state of embarrassment).
To offer perhaps a bit of justification – if at all possible – the dating scene in Sydney has been turned upside down since The Spicy Cough arrived, with virtually every single person forced to give up virtually any chance of finding it. love, and just try to enjoy the time alone.
The good points are that single Australians have taken the time to decide what they want from a partner, realizing that life is too short and now is the time to do things in the bedroom that would otherwise be. considered taboo.
But f * ckboi might actually be more of an umbrella term, rather than referring to a specific type of man from Sydney, as another TikTok video series proves. The videos are courtesy of @racyinaus, or Rachel in Australia, an American expat who now resides in Down Under.
In an ongoing series of videos, she describes typical Sydney men women are likely to meet on their dating trips, none of whom look like boyfriends or even husbands. We assume his videos are based on personal experience.
If you are a single female living in Sydney reading this we guarantee that you will be able to relate to some, if not all of the videos Rachel has posted so far.
Check out Rachel’s observations of single Sydney men in the video below
She says “the first guy you go out with is a guy who works in” commercial real estate “, on the first date he is going to buy you both a pitcher of something, and he is going to pick a table there. ‘outside because it’ I will spend all my time vaping.
She goes on to reveal another kind of Sydney man, “a bartender in his twenties, who somehow manages to live in a ridiculous penthouse in the Vaucluse.” Other Sydney singletons that women can expect to meet include the “Irish guy who lives in Bondi with some sort of tattoo on his butt that he really regrets but comes out the second you ask what it’s”. It will also have the ‘quintessential Irish haircut’, which can be compared to those seen in Peaky Blinders.
We won’t explain in detail all of the different stereotypes of Sydney that Rachel lists, we leave the pleasure of watching the video above to you. What his videos highlight, however, is the fact that these stereotypes still exist, and that there is no mention of the “nice boy.”
A long-standing clichÃ© says that âthe good guys end up lastâ. DMARGE previously reported the story of dating advice columnist and podcaster Jana Hocking, who always found herself dating “bad boys.” But an unexpected visit to the hospital, where she was being treated by a rather attentive male doctor, changed her perspective.

âAs someone who has always been the ‘fixer’ as opposed to the one who needs to be fixed, I got a new vision of the ‘good guy’ from that frightening moment in the hospital. can be really damn sexy, âshe said.
Sex therapist and relationship expert Dr Nikki Goldstein also previously told DMARGE that cool guys might finally have a chance to shine in a post-Covid world,
“COVID has changed the way we date. We have moved from the age of sex to the age of relationships. People are wondering when they will be able to go out and travel again and if blockages will be the new normal.”
âSo they also assess who they want to be locked up with. People don’t necessarily want a bad guy, but a guy who will stand with them through hard times and support them during a pandemicâ¦ The good guy.
Of course, unless you make it clear that you are shit in your profile, a woman is unlikely to know if you are good or bad. But let Rachel’s TikTok videos be a warning that women are focusing on the predictable games you play.
