9 Labels Guys Give To Girls, And What They Actually Mean

If you ask most guys, they will say men see girls as two different types.

It's pretty simple: There's the kind of girl he wants to date, and the kind of girl he will eventually want to marry.

But let's be real here: There are MANY steps between dating and marriage. Maybe the guy is not ready for commitment, or maybe he hasn't found the right chick to float his boat just yet.

Some girls have desired qualities for long-term relationships, and some girls won't make it past one date.

There are many sub-categories within the dating world today under which a guy will classify a girl. Whether he sees her as girlfriend material or not, a girl will fall under one (or several) of them.

Sure, some of these labels probably sound quite familiar to us all.

But what does a guy actually MEAN when he whispers into your ear that you're so “sexy” and “fun,” or breaks out in that handsome smile of his and says you're “cute,” but never calls you “beautiful?”

How does he describe you to his friends?

Here's what a guy means when he labels a girl the following things:

1. Sexy


This girl has the bod of a god, and she knows how to work it.

She will be fun to hang out with, and the first person he thinks of for a late-night booty call. But sexy alone is not going to be wifey material in the long run.

2. Beautiful

Studio Firma

This is the gal who has the ENTIRE package.

She's a natural beauty, both inside and out. She has style, confidence and class all her own… and she's the one most guys want to marry someday.

When she wakes up in the morning in his boxer shorts, oversized t-shirt and no make-up, and he says, “You look beautiful,” she is.

3. Fun

Studio Firma

This is literally Corinne from “The Bachelor.” She's all about spontaneity, whipped cream and skinny dipping.

She has her eye on the prize. She knows what she wants, and is determined AF to get it.

He can always count on her to bring something crazy fun to the table. Every relationship needs a bit of that to keep it fresh.

Long-term though, it needs more substance.

4. Cute


She will most likely not be the one to make the first move. She also may not be outwardly spontaneous, like the fun chick in the bunch.

But she's adorable and sweet in her own way.

The cute girl is going to make him lunch, bake him brownies and be an awesome friend. She is laid back, but she may be seen as too much of a “friend” or “sister” at times. She may not be captivating enough to win his heart.

5. “Kind Of Cute”

Some things are just not there. She seems sweet enough, but there's just no chemistry when compared to other girls he has dated in the past.

"Kind of" doesn't cut it.

6. High-Maintenance

Studio Firma

She can't make a last-minute or uncomplicated plan. This chick wears full-on makeup and jewelry to the beach, and wedges to a baseball game.

She gets pissed off at just about everything he says and does, and she can't ever let things slide. This chick is a lot of work, and she may not be worth the effort.

7. Crazy

This is the gal he may go out with once, but he will wisely never make that mistake again. She scares him because she takes things to the extreme.

Like, she talks about marriage, love and children on their first date… awkward AF.

Or maybe she requests all his friends on social media before she meets them. She texts the guy obsessively, even though he's not texting back.

A guy would be wise to avoid her like the plague, but she may be hard to shake.

8. Psycho Chick

Jovana Rikalo

We're talking “Fatal Attraction” here.

This girl defines a creepy, obsessive stalker. She doesn't take “no” for an answer, nor does she take any subtle hints.

He didn't even try to hang out with her, but she thinks there's way more to their connection than there actually is. He better not meet up with this gal in a dark alley, that's for sure.

9. Just “OK”

There was absolutely no connection whatsoever.

He probably won't even remember that he met her the next time they run into one another. She certainly did not make an impression in his eyes: OUCH.

There's a gal for every guy, and a guy for every gal. Just as much as guys give girls labels, girls also have their own they give to guys.

And HEY, knowing what we want and don't want is a time saver for everyone.

So, neither side should judge.
