Helo Battles The Mean Girls

Eyecandy versus Braincandy

It’s a bad sign of things to come when I’m the last bastion of truth and justice in the world of dating. Now, as I mentioned, I’m definitely not Dr. Love. In no way, shape, or form do I know anything about the psychology of dating, nor have I written extensive thesis’s on the subject. All that I know for sure is that I can give you some great tips on how to meet a nice, worth-your-time woman. In the grand scheme of things, those are the two qualities that matter the most.

Allow me to explain this proven theory real quick. You’re cruising for a bruising if you’re hunting after a mate who is going to treat you like crap. I know that sounds like something I shouldn’t have to warn you about, but some guys can’t resist a girl with a little bit of attitude. Avoid it at all costs. The same thing goes for finding a girl who is worth your time, as well as your effort. If you meet a girl who is drop-dead gorgeous, but her ambitions include learning to type at 45 words-per-minutes, while your’s includes a LL.M in law, then you might want to reconsider the beauty versus brains argument. While it’s nice to have a girl who looks great on your arm, you’ve got to think about what it’ll be like for the other 23 hours and 57 minutes that you’re with her. Try to chase after someone who is on your level or working darned hard to get there. Not only is it easier to relate to them, but you will find that your goals in life are much the same, even if you work in industries that are polar opposites.

One of the faithful readers of this website, Steve from Lakewood, commented about my post from last week, stating that he attempted to go the “friend route” with a lady he was interested in, only to be shot down and completely erased from her life. Steve, I think you truly lucked-out with her. Imagine being with someone who has no problem erasing any and all evidence of friendship with a person just because a situation because a little bit uncomfortable? I’ve noticed that a lot of trials and tribulations in relationships are actually blessings in disguise. When I was in my late teens and twenties, I remember getting pissed-off when a girl didn’t want to date me any longer, or if I just got rejected all together. It was both embarrassing and heartbreaking if they happened to be a friend, and you knew that you would run into them at social gatherings or when you went to go hang out with mutual friends. But, I cannot think of a single time that the perceived crappy situation didn’t turn into a winner. Most of those girls who I really liked didn’t end up being much of anything in life. I think one of them went to a computer training school, and another one dropped out of a Cal State to do who knows what. Either way you look at it, things happen for a reason. I can guarantee that Steve from Lakewood is better of without Ms. Go-Eat-Shit-and-Leave-Me-Alone who gave him the Heisman.
