First of all grab your pen and paper because you might require some eye opening notes. You are probably a simp as well, probably why you rushed to see what sort of new disorder this is. Relax, I came up with it.

Everyone talks about simping, there is a whole rigmarole around it but what exactly is simping?

It is a slang used to describe someone who shows excessive sympathy and attention towards another person, who does not reciprocate the same feelings. Mark the key words please. So the big question is, are you a simp?

If you have doubts I have a couple of simp-toms you might need to check out to gauge how you are fairing on that front.

1. ALWAYS TEXTING THEM EVEN IF YOU HAVE BEEN LEFT ON READ

First of all, where is your pride? If you have frequently found yourself texting someone yet they have not been replying, I hate to break it to you, you are a simp.

You probably have left 7 unread messages, and yes, they can see it, it probably has popped up in their notifications and they will not open that message because they are simply not interested. Also, when they reply, you barely take a second to reply, their texts are read as soon as they are delivered.

2. ALWAYS CHECKING THEIR SOCIALS AND WHAT THEY ARE DOING

Apart from being a potential stalker, you are a dangerous simp.

You know what color they like, what their aunt’s middle name is, where they spend most of their time, you know what his dogs likes to eat, you shamelessly like all their photos on the gram and probably know all his mutual friends.

You could write a whole book about their lives and now the problem is they know nothing about you and that person probably doesn’t even know your real name. You have probably commented on all their photos with heart emojis waiting for them to notice. It won't happen.

3.SPENDING AN UNNECESSARY AMOUNT OF MONEY ON THEM

Okay, who told you they like jewelry? lets start from there. Spending money on someone that doesn’t really care is probably one of the ways that will leave you bankrupt and looking like a clown.

It’s a pity you live a simplistic lifestyle, yet you have the money to simp.

4.DOING THINGS THAT THEY LIKE TO PLEASE THEM

Ever heard of a lady that has no clue whatsoever about football telling you stuff about football? All of a sudden she likes Salah, she's cheering an offside goal.

It’s a whole comedy just watching her pretend to like things because she likes a guy. All of a sudden action movies thrill her, she's into Mortal Kombat  and the likes, her favorite show should be the simpsons if you ask me. If all you do is do things to please someone, please refer to the topic in discussion.

5.YOU CANCEL ALL YOUR IMPORTANT PLANS TO BE THERE FOR THEM

Yes this happens. I am a victim, you are probably a victim as well.

So if you find your self cancelling all necessary plans to meet with this person, you already know who you are, you miss out on important opportunities because of this simptuation and it will cost you a lot in the long run.

You lose friends as you simp and no one wants to be around you because you will disappoint them to be with the love of your life, who doesn’t love you back in this case.

There sure is a cure for this -a wake up call!
