I would quote what I said, but my attempt at a joke sputtered out of me so poorly that I’m not even sure it made sense. Some sort of new, more clever joke to make up for my failed attempt at my original, semi-clever joke. In the past, I sulked away in this situation having embarrassed myself again.
I sidled up near her, two stools apart, maybe three, as casual as I could muster.
But I quickly gleaned that life spent in the company of a self-serving simpleton is no life at all. Yes, we started out shallow, now we're here: As women mature, we rarely see our partner's appearance as a measure of our own value, in stark contrast to those men who try to distract us from their deep-seated insecurities by dragging an extra-shiny, much-hotter lady friend around with them like an overpriced designer handbag.
(Timely case in point: our newish president, whose ego is more fragile than a Ming vase and whose looks are ten thousand leagues under Melania's sea.)At a time when women look better, value appearance less, and don't feel the need to prop up their sense of self-worth with arm candy as men do, perhaps it's only natural to encounter mismatched-looking couples roaming about, openly challenging Darwin's views of sexual selection.
All of your charming tales about having so much in common ("He ? But this being an aspirational magazine for men, let's stick to the former.) The mystery intensifies when the lady in question is not only gorgeous but also smart, funny, and wildly successful, and the guy in question is a scruffy-looking dude with a dad bod, a nonexistent career, and a bad habit of showing up to red-carpet events looking like he just got off a fifteen-hour flight from Mongolia. There are unquestionably more beautiful women in the world than there are handsome men.
Women are criticized for having the audacity to exist past the age of forty, but contrary to popular belief, men are the ones who really go to seed as the years tick by.
They'll tell their equally attractive kids heartwarming stories about "love at first sight," but such pairings are about as compelling as a casting agent's daily grind.
Brangelina, the Bennifers, the Hiddleswifts, the Teigen-Legends: We get it.
I sighed and said, “I’m sorry, I was trying to be clever.You can say the “wrong” things and still attract a woman.You can say all of the “right” things and repel her.And it wouldn't be a stretch to say that most people's lives revolve around their primary love relationship. However, women will tell you that there's nothing more attractive in a man than self-acceptance (which is the same as complacency). So towards the end of med school, I started to read some pertinent books and hanging out with guys savvier than me in this dating realm. Do you remember the girl that made you feel the way that no one else could? No fights or arguing just absolute pleasure and ecstasy everyday.
