So I’m glad to be the “sacrificial lamb” of sorts and use my personal experience to dig into some of the microaggressions single folk face regularly.
I downloaded the app immediately, hopeful that I’d at least get one date out of it.
Had I finally found an app where men would be held accountable for their actions?
I have been painfully single for a ridiculously long time.
I am running on six (going on seven) years of involuntary celibacy.
My last, short-lived relationship started after a considerable dry spell.
And I’ve had a of those dry spells: no crushes, no physical liaisons, no dates — nada.
They're trained from a young age to be (often) unjustifiably self-assured, to eschew personality and affability for cocksure confidence, and to generally treat people like the feudal system is alive and kickin'. And because of this I think women tend to retain some memory of what it means to be liked (or disliked) for who one is, not how one looks.
The bottom line: Ask any woman who she'd rather have as her boyfriend -- the lovably awkward Albert Brennaman (aka Kevin James -- told you he was the crux of the arugment) from ?
, though I would probably argue that Kevin James is kind of a stud, and really, that's exactly the point I plan on making-- and we see it in our friends.
There are plenty of studies on this strangely anti-Darwinian phenomenon - studies which I think don't answer the question as well as I, with my oh-so-steadfast opinions, can, do, and will. Let's talk about what exactly is wrong with these conventionally attractive men, and let's talk about what is right about these, well, conventionally -attractive men.
One’s relationship status is one of the most private things people tend to consider “fair game” to base very personal judgments and assumptions about our value as human beings on.
