As I sit here listening to a sad ballad from my "Alone... Still" playlist (the song is "High and Dry" by Radiohead), I begin to wonder where I went wrong with the last guy I dated. Oh, right. He had a job that paid by the hour, didn't go to college, and was in a terrible band... leading to my thought for today: do we attract a certain type of person?
Because judging from my past, my future doesn't look very promising. It looks short, possibly overweight (at the very least, a large beer gut), questionable hair styles, and even more questionable credentials. I know we all make the general statements that personality accounts for more than looks, but isn't attraction partly based on physical attraction? And if there are no physical traits to appreciate, what are you looking at?
Honestly, I'm jealous of girls who can see the "diamond in the rough." Seeing as that statement was first introduced to me in the movie "Aladdin," I'm going to use him as the example. Despite his "street rat" demeanor, Princess Jasmine was able to see past his raggedy clothes and pet monkey (potential rabies or Ebola carrier) to the prince he could become. On the other hand, why can't the universe just give Princess Jasmine the pre-packaged prince she deserves?
Riddle me that.
