Dear Pretty Boys,
Please don’t take offense to the title above, I just needed to catch your attention luvs. I’m sure that some of you who are reading this letter will be quick to say “Well this ain’t about me!” So let me take a second to let you know exactly who this letter is for. This letter is not solely for the high maintenance guys. It’s for your gorgeous model-esque negroes, chicos and blancos. It’s for every guy that’s ever used his looks to get by at least 6 times in his life. It’s for the guy who walks into a room and knows that he’ll capture a female audience at the wink of an eye or the flash of a smile. Yup! If you fit the mold mentioned above, congrats! You sir are a stunning man and what I like to refer to as a “Pretty Boy” so this letter is for you buddy! I repeat…this letter is for you. Read on my dears…
“I don’t like pretty boys because they are nothing but trouble. They act like they are irreplaceable and treat women as if they are easily replaceable. Not interested in dating men like that!” – Heather, 26
Now I’m sure you’re aware of the stereotypes that surround a guy like yourself and if you’re not familiar then no worries, I’ll line them up for you:
“He’s not too bright”
“He’s not a chaser! You’ve got to chase him”
“He’s got a lot of chicks on his stick and so if you’re not giving it up then he doesn’t have time for you”
A bit harsh? Isn’t every generalization and stereotype? But… they always stem from somewhere.
This summer I got into a bit of a tiff with a pretty boy pal about my neglect to date men like you. “That’s not right. You can’t judge every guy by your past experiences. You should give it another chance this summer.” Truth be told, at the moment, this plea seemed like a pointless attempt. Don’t get me wrong, I can appreciate a gorgeous guy and it isn’t a problem for me to bag one but what is the definition of insanity? Yea only a fool would continue on a path that always lead to disappointments. Nonetheless, I decided to be a fool one more time and welcome the challenge. I not only dated one pretty boy. I dated three. Let me share my experiences with you, fair friends:
PRETTY BOY #1: MR. JUMP YOUR BONES…
In an attempt to fulfill one of my summer goals, 5 Guys You Should Def. Date Before Settling Down, I gave this man a lot more chances than he deserved. Perfect example of curiosity killing the cat. He was guy #2 “The Foreigner.” Asian. Very very attractive. Tall. 6’2”! Fine, and nice lips. He told me that he had his 1st intimate experience with a black girl last year and said that it was pretty amazing. Should this have been a red flag? He also mentioned his distaste for often becoming “the experiment” for any girl who had never dated an Asian guy (lol. Dang). Given that fact, I didn’t think I’d become the experiment myself but when a guy says that he’s not looking for a relationship… it becomes a red flag. Not to mention he had just read my recent cuffing season blog smh. I knew it was coming but dang not on the 2nd night that he just happened to be at my house watching Sex in the City (My call. It’s all I had but never again.) He definitely jumped straight to 4th base in an attempt to create our own episode of Sexcapades but TOO SOON DUDE! After that, I never heard from him again. Actually I did hear from him again but the text msgs shifted from quick responses and full sentences to 12 hour delays and short responses. Hey! I produce a show called “What Would a Man Do?” so I knew the deal. Two attempts and I called a quits.
