Recently I was speaking with a female bartender that I work with and we were discussing a girl (whom my co-worker knows) that I hooked up with and who I thought might be someone I could date. Here's basically how the conversation went down:
Female Bartender: "She's definitely hot. I just don't see you two having much in common though. She's pretty vapid. I see you with someone who's smarter, someone who is into writing and reading, someone more interesting. You can do better."
Me: "Yeah I want someone I can speak intelligently with and who can understand my humor, but this girl is so beautiful! Maybe we can just not ever talk and she could just like, always be standing next to me, looking all hot and everything."
I get the "you can do better" line a lot when it comes to me and women. It's great for my ego but it really makes me wonder if "better" is even out there. I meet a ton of girls and "better" is rare, if not impossible to find. The "better" girls have a short shelf life and usually get snapped up pretty quick during that small window of singlehood between douchebag boyfriends.
Around 9 months ago I found a girl who I thought was on my intellectual plane, was funny, had an incredible amount of things in common with me and was classically beautiful. And well, after two months she dumped my ass like a sack of potatoes. I did "better" for the first time in a while and it didn't work out. It doesn't feel good to get dumped.
Maybe I'll just stick to the "you can do better" girls for now. They've always been there for me in the past.
Although I'm gonna have my eyes open and I'm gonna be ready to be that "better" guy to that "better" girl. Unless of course she reads this blog, because then I'm pretty much fucked...
