About me:
There are numerous psychological answers behind the quandary that perplexes insecure passersby and jealous men staring at these couples across the crosswalk. Why the hell is she with him? How the hell did he pull that off? Someone, please, give me an answer! Women do just want their feet kissed. After years of broken hearts and deceit by the hot men we so yearned after, women are really just looking for someone to show a little worship, a little praise.

It's a typical boys night out and on our way to the movie, we walked by a couple holding hands. The woman had what I like to call a "triple-take" face: I looked at her three times before I noticed her boyfriend was about to hit me over the head. Luckily for me, I was surrounded by six friends and so the worst thing that happened was a "watch it buddy" killer stare. This woman was hot! Not only did she have a tight dress to show off her killer curves, she also had dating an unattractive guy face of an angel. Then it dawned on me; the chunky Ron Jeremy [famous porn star] look-a-like boyfriend didn't really have the looks to merit such a beautiful girlfriend. What was so special about him?

The Dating Nerd is a shadowy figure whose whereabouts and identifying details remain unknown. What we do know is that he is really, really good at dating. I've been dating this girl for a few months, and it's going super well, but, uh, she's kind of ugly. Or, like, not ugly, but not as pretty as some other girls I've dated. Personality-wise, she's someone I could see dating for a long time, but she's a bit on the heavy side and just not as pretty as I wish she was. I keep wondering whether I should break up with her, and get with somebody hotter.

In the dating world, there's a certain grading system with which you're undoubtedly all too familiar. Akin to a beauty contest scorecard, a person's attractiveness is ranked from one to And generally, it's presumed that the beautiful Amazons among us the eights, nines, and 10s should only date each other -- while the "uglies" of the bunch the twos, threes, and fours must stick to their own Quasimodo kind. But, every now and then, a couple pulls the switch off this genetic equilibrium. Now, I'm certainly not going to put myself into the same camp with the Julia Roberts and Padmas of the world I've welcomed men into my bed who were short, fat, or balding sometimes all three , while I, thankfully, am none of those things.

Skip to content , or skip to search. I was at Void with friends, and as soon as he was introduced to me I felt woozy because I was such a fan of his oeuvre. If he was that weird-looking, he would never leave me. So I hit on him. I must have done something right because a few hours later we found ourselves horizontal on his futon.

The other day, at a Fashion Week party, my friend Alan and I stood against a wall, scanning the room for hot people, as you do. I told him that, at 31, the realization was probably a bit overdue, but I knew what he meant: As one gets older, it becomes harder and harder to be attracted to someone simply because of the way they look. Or perhaps we become more acutely aware of the impermanence of beauty after experiencing our own signs of aging? While some people clearly feel proud to have a hottie on their arm, others are more comfortable having the upper hand in the beauty department. Millie and I lived together during our early and mid-twenties, and at the time, it felt like every other week she had a new model boyfriend. Most of us, at some point in our lives, have hung posters of models and movie stars on our bedroom walls. And no matter how much I love my partner, I still occasionally masturbate to Tony Ward.
