I was listening to Q100 this morning on the way to work this morning. The Bert Show had a male caller who scored a date with someone who he thought was “out of his league” (are we still doing the league thing!?). After their three hour date, the guy decided that they were not that compatible after all. Once he got to see her personality, he realized they were not a match.
It was interesting (refreshing?) to hear a guy state that it took more than great looks to keep him interested. Since he considered himself to be Christian, keeping her around just for physical purposes did not appeal to him.
Like some of you mentioned earlier this week, once you get past the chemistry and sparks, there must be something there to sustain interest and cultivate an actual relationship. This is assuming, of course, that you even want a relationship!
People who have extremely great looks, wealth, or power probably seem to have greater options, but it takes more to keep someone who wants you for you. I’m sure we are all guilty of going out with people for superficial reasons, but how long did that last? Exactly.
Do you think that there is a misconception that men will put up with bad attitudes and personalities? Some of the comments from the show this morning made it seem like it was rare that a guy would not keep a hot woman around.
Guys are you inclined to stick around long after you realize incompatibility?
Ladies do you think you that you endure too much incompatibility for too long with the men you date? Should women be more proactive in moving on when they discover that the guy doesn’t offer much beyond great sex, gifts, or status?
