Admit it; your last boyfriend was a loser. He never returned your calls, he broke off dates and he flirted with everything that had a pair of you-know-whats, but you were in love. Every time he coughed up the $3.95 to take you on an ice cream date, you melted faster than your chocolate chip mint cone. Cue gag. How could you have been so wrong? You were a sucker, like millions of women across the globe.

Camouflaged with flattery and a spot-on sense of style, he might seem like The One, but he's not, and you might not know until it's too late. To save you the post-breakup cocktails and raw cookie dough, Her Campus is here with our No-Fly List. Beware these three guys. They are wolves in sheep's clothing (or a perfectly tailored J.Crew sweater). Proceed with caution.

What I cannot imagine is grieving and trying to make sense of the death of a significant other in the public eye.
