By now everyone knows how important it is to always say something when you discover that there is someone on you like.

It’s been said over and over again that you never can tell what will happen when you open your mouth and let your intentions be known to the man or woman you have a crush on. Whether you are a woman or a guy, it is important that you shoot your shot.

But when you shook it and it is repeatedly blocked, you need to know when to give up and test your throwing abilities in another hoop [we have to keep up the shot throwing metaphors, right?]

One downside of this shot-throwing spree, particularly for women, is that this brings a lot of players to the yard; a lot of different guys who all slide in DMs with the hope of scoring big!

In the list below, we categorized these men into five categories and you will find all of them in every girl’s DMs.

1. The pervs

At least 7 out of every 10 girls active female social media user must have come across one, two or more of this kinda guy.

This one will flood women’s inboxes with unsolicited dick pics and will only share sexual content he finds online. He is usually very relentless and always ends up getting called out publicly, cussed out privately, blocked or sometimes, he gets a furious combination of all three.

2. Too-lazy-to-type

This one types all the time like he never has time to converse.

He’ll abbreviate even a two-letter word. He’s  the one that changes the word from ‘OK’ to ‘K,’ forgetting that OK is itself an abbreviation already!

Depending on the babe in question, though, this guy may not be that bad.

3. Boyfriend material

These are the guys that every babe expects when they say "you can slide into my DM."

This guy says hi in a decent way and strikes mature and smart conversations. He’s witty, makes you laugh. Drops good comments on your pictures, sends funny memes to you, but also educational ones and posts about stuff he thinks you may like.

Many times, they’re so sleek that you’ll be the offering your Whatsapp number, and asking for a meet up.

This doesn’t end well all the times though. But the chances of it ending in a great relationship is far higher than that of others.

4. Mr. Persistent

It does not matter how many times you say no to this one, he won’t go away. He has decided, just by viewing your Instagram feed, that he loves you and he wants to date you.

No matter how long or how hard you say no, he won’t be dissuaded.

Throwing a block at him is the only way to shut him up. [Oh well, that’s if he doesn’t open another account for your sake]

5.  The asshole

This is the one who gets angry when you refuse to reply his messages or say yes to him. He switches up from the good guy act he had when he was hopeful of a relationship or a hangout and begins to call you names and all sorts the moment you reject him
