Women keep duds despite better guys

I’ve noticed a pattern with female dating habits: girls like jackasses.

That’s right, I said it. I can’t even count the times I’ve seen a couple where the guy belittles his girlfriend, acts moronically or just doesn’t care at all. Yet somehow, women choose the village idiot over the wise elder. Things may be entertaining at first, but without someone to share sophisticated conversation with, you can’t really go very far.

Just look at all the media of current society to see an example of this. TV shows such as MTV’s "Parental Control" simply amaze me when stupid choices are made. To continue dating someone who ignores you and is clearly a bad boyfriend to the outside world over the guy who actually cares for you and would do anything for you goes back to my point, being a jackass is appreciated.

"Jersey Shore" is another great example of what kinds of guys girls shouldn’t like. If your boyfriend takes longer than you to get ready, it’s time to move on. If he has to "play the field" to prove something, start looking elsewhere. I realize that different girls like different types of guys, but there comes a point where you have to wonder, "Is she serious?"

Now, don’t get me wrong, we do this too. Unfortunately, a "one night stand" for guys is usually something a guy brags about. The girl becomes a sort of trophy to add to the rack and is then forgotten. I think this is wrong. However, if it becomes something more than that but the girl is no longer appealing, the guy will drop her like a sack of bricks. The difference is that girls will stay with a pathetic pile in hopes of things possibly getting better. When will you realize that if it looks like a disaster waiting to happen, chances are it is. Get out while you still can.

Now, this isn’t a "looking for" classified ad or anything, but I personally could not see myself acting that way. I appreciate what women want and strive to make it so. I would never cheat on or demean a girl just to make myself feel better if things aren’t perfect.

But as I said, girls will continue to stay with these kinds of guys just to hope things get better. Here’s a secret: they rarely do.

So all I ask is this: girls, please pay attention to whom you date and hopefully things can change. You can have a great boyfriend that cares about your interests, will give you an occasional massage and isn’t a complete failure. If you avoid the sharks, you’ll see there are plenty of good fish in the sea.
