8 Simple Reasons Why Men Avoid Ideal Women
There are a million reasons why a person can be lonely. But have you ever noticed that smart beautiful girls are often stuck in "waiting mode"? Some of them spend years trying to find their real love, but it's all useless.
Many of us believe that such women shouldn't have such problems, but they do. We at Bright Side have found a couple of good reasons why the perfect girls are still alone.
Look at modern women. They're strong and confident, and they don't need any "protection" from men. A story published in The Question perfectly describes how such girls choose their partners:
My friend is 25. She is a very nice girl, smart and well educated, a good dresser with a great job. She loves spending time with her friends in bars and at concerts. Guys really like her, but nonetheless she is still single. Why? Because she has a cool head, and she knows exactly who should be with her. She'd never start a new relationship "Just so I'm not alone" or "Just to give it a try." That's why the majority of guys are labeled "Dismissed" either from the first sight or right after the first date.
Smart and sophisticated women make decisions very quickly: if a guy doesn't seem to be good marriage material, then "Adios, amigo!" Dating should have its final destination, and if it's not going anywhere, then it's just a waste of time. That's why some girls in their 30s have already been married, divorced, married again, given birth, and started planning another wedding, while some still can't give the green light to the first date.
Unfortunately, made-up complexes are quite common. A curvy gal can easily wear leopard print leggings and feel good about herself, whilst a tall girl with slender legs won't even consider wearing a miniskirt. Why? It's all about self-esteem, so women should learn how to raise it.
"Personally, I want a woman who can take care of me and take care of things around the house. I don’t want anybody who is going to be looking for attention every time we go out," says one of the male respondents on the Internet. Actually, many men agreed with him.
If on the first date a girl shows the wedding dress she's going to wear or mentally plans their honeymoon or tries to impress the guy with her honesty by going on and on about her ovarian cyst surgery, their first date is going to be their last one. Such women are trying too hard and, as a result, look desperate. They're too focused on getting married, but, in fact, they're focused on their loneliness. It's very obvious, and it scares the men away.
Beautiful women are often single. Their beauty attracts only annoying jerks, whilst nice modest guys find such women very intimidating. Here's an illustrative story:
Six years after my graduation I was introduced to a married man. We became friends, but I always felt this special bond between us. One day he confessed that he and I studied at the same university, and he really liked me back then. When I asked him why he hadn't done anything about it, he said, "You looked so inaccessible, the most beautiful girl in the whole university. I knew you turned down even the most popular guys, so how could I compete with them? I thought you wouldn't even look at me."
Ignoring one opportunity after another, women can accidentally miss the "right" person. A girl thinks that she'll know it's him the second she sees him, but it doesn't work this way. Relationships are based on the trial and error method, and women shouldn't be afraid of it.
My husband's ex was such a "Miss Perfect." She was pretty and smart, and her zest for life was so inspiring. I heard him say that it wasn't just a crush, but he was crazy about her. It was killing me. I tortured myself with one single question: "What does he see in me?"
Right before our wedding, I decided to ask him. He shrugged. "It was complicated because she was too perfect," he said. "Take us, for example, okay? We wake up early, but if we want we can get out of our bed in the evening or leave the dirty plates right beside our bed if we want to. We just know nothing terrible will happen to us if we do. But she was crazy about having everything done perfectly. You know, the perfectionist syndrome. So I said, "No, thank you!" "
