Signs He’s Your Scott Disick (Not Your Travis Barker)

Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian dated on and off for almost 10 years before breaking up in 2015. According to E!, Scott didn’t come home after a month-long partying escapade and was subsequently photographed in Monte Carlo with his ex-girlfriend. It was then that Kourt broke up with Scott.

Then, in 2021, Kardashian started dating long-time friend and blink-182 drummer, Travis Barker. The couple got engaged less than a year later and are totally in love. As the saying goes, if he wanted to, he would.

We’ve all had a Scott Disick type in our own love lives. The guy we adore but can’t get to commit to us in the way we deserve. Here are some signs he’s not your Travis Barker, but your Scott Disick.

You have a strong connection but it’s also incredibly inconsistent.

You have the connection and you have the chemistry, but you also have tons of inconsistency. You never really know what version of him you’re going to get on a given day. It’s difficult because when it’s good, it’s great, but when it’s bad, it’s a trainwreck. You keep thinking of the guy you know he could be but ultimately isn’t all the time. It’s exhausting.

You’ve been together for a while but you’re still always waiting on something to change for the better.

Something isn’t working, and if you’re being honest with yourself, you know it’s because something has to change on his end. You’ve put in the work, you’ve been ready to go all in, but he still drags his feet. You know you can’t control his behavior but you still hope he will figure it out and fix what needs fixing. You are praying that maybe he just needs time to figure his shit out and grow up.

Your friends like him but they don’t think he’s your forever person.

Your friends get along with him, they think he’s fun, but only for now. They don’t think he’s your forever person, just your good-for-the-moment-sort-of person. Your friends know you well. They want what’s best for you. You should take their opinions into account.

You want things to work so badly but you’re also always wondering if you deserve more.

Deep down, you know you deserve more. You are always questioning whether this love is the only love you get in this life and you kind of hope it’s not.

While you may love him, you need to love yourself more. You need to stop giving endless chances to a man who will take every single one and then some. You need to stop waiting on your Scott Disick and go find your Travis Barker. You deserve steady love. Don’t forget that.
