Most underrated singles: Do you overlook them?

Essence.com featured a list of the most underrated “types” that seem to get overlooked in dating.  There was a list for men and women, which seemed to outline the many perfectly dateable individuals that get a bad wrap in dating.  From the Mamma’s boy to the corporate/career woman, the underrated types actually read more like …normal people. You know, humans with imperfections?

I can’t honestly say that I haven’t overlooked men who are considered underrated. However,  I am not all that convinced they would have been interested or a good match for me anyway.  I think some single people are drawn to a certain “popular” type but is that who we should end up dating?

If we are all trying to date “the type”who are supposedly in high demand, who do you think is getting ignored? Would you consider yourself the type that is underrated?  If so, does it bother you? What (if anything) would you do differently to stand out?

@lay in low, Black AND white women need to get over themselves. With some of tyhe attitudes I see on this blog, I’m not surprised that the men have such unfavorable views towards women.

“Excuse me, Miss. Could we go out for months and maybe get married? After we get married you can nag me, berate me, redicule me, tell me I’m a pig, tell me my friends are not good for me and fool me by sexing like a porn star while we date only to become a nun and think of it as a chore after the ceremony.”

Yeah…..that’s the ticket. Swallow the blue pill if you want to stay single and swallow the red one if you want to go to hell.

LMAO..i meet with these date or dont date list…one troubling thing i see now in our community is weight..there are alot of heavy chevy’s when i step out on the town…this “she is thick” thing as gone to far…its more troubling to see less black women in the gyms or playing fields..IJS…

@NEO..lol..funny break down..but alot of that no sexing after the ceremony as some to do with the load your lady feels she has to carry…there is alot of bad programming out here..and thats because you are likely to run into a single mother who has been doing all by herself..so its hard to lose that mentality even when coupled up..they still think you going to leave..

I wonder if any married women can elaborate on the “supposedly” diminishing drive after marriage.

Sometimes I think that stems from unresolved issues or probably just physically tired its demaanding raising a family…but I don’t think its purposeful like oh yeah when we get married I am going to stop more like probably when we got married I didnt think it would be like this “why did i do this again?”

@chink..most women…get up…get the kids ready..get themselves ready…make lunchs or give money..drive in traffic to school/daycare…drive in traffice to work…work…battle percieved..haters/boss/job duties/gossip…lunch….more work…drive in traffic…pick up kids…get home…help with homework..clean up…cook dinner…check home work….get kids ready for bed..get selve ready

Man…get up..wash balls…go to work….get off work…go meet up boys for drink or gentlemans club…or any other percieve errand…or maybe..hit the gym…or go play sport..

so when men get home and think there women will perform on them…look at her day…for a man all that is ok i have to do this and i am good..for a woman…all that equates to stress..because from what i was told alot of them dont want to ” mess it up” so its undo stress placed on them or they feel the man i not helping enough…its like the more time she gets to run her mouth on the phone to her pals the happier you will be…that means she has elimated a “duty” for girl time…less thats what i learned from my time of marriage

@Chink, I even read it in an article on relationships. A study by a German relationship doctor found that after the 4th year in a “secure” (his exact wording), a woman experiences a major drop in testosterone producting and subsequently, libido. Sure there are other factors, but everyone has that. And it made no differentialtion between having or nor having kids. They just do. Maybe that’s why we are boucing off the walls while we date, because there’s the possibility that he could break it off and that would be that. Once the marriage is done, that threat drops a lot because of the legal and financial rammifications.

The weight…..yeah. I don’t mind a few extra pounds. What I dislike is the deceit of the weight issue. When they say “I’m big boned”….Yeah….and there is a lot of meat on them bones…..Looks like most of them bones ended up in your rear end…..I’m guessing they are crushed by now.

If you’re overweight, admit it. We will know it the moment we see you. If it bothers you, loose the weight.

@lay in low, that’s not the case these days, I did most of the laundry, damn near all of the cooking, I woke up before my wife did, got the kids ready, then took a cup of coffee up to my wife so she could wake up and go to her job. When I came home from work around 6:30, all she did was sit in the recliner and watch TV while complaining of how tired she was. Mean while I played with the dog, the kids, clean the kitchen (I normally, but not always, made the dinner, too). She was in bed at 9 and the cycle repeated itself. The days of the woman doing the housework and all of the child rearing has long sense been gone. I can attest to that.

As the “fat” guy who usually gets overlooked, I learned very early on that physical attraction is only worth so much. A woman can be the most strikingly beautiful person you have ever seen, but if her personality is utter garbage, or if she is (for lack of a better phrase) dumber than a bag of hammers, there won’t be much there.

Then again, I consider myself blessed. Yeah, like I said, I’m the “fat” guy. But I’m dating the most beautiful, smart, funny lady I know.

I was NOT the husband that just worked and came home. I wasn’t gonna be the guy that got put on Oprah with 90,000 women raining fire on him for being worthless. If I see another article to the slant that women think that a man doing housework is sexy, I’m gonna throw up. All it did was raise the bar for me and it was EXPECTED of me to do what I had been doing. Before marriage, we did it damn near every other day. We went on our honeymoon in Grand Caymen for a week and we had sex ONCE while there. It only got worse from then on out. So I filed after 7 years and asked if we could be done with this in a couple of hours.

Stop with teh BS excuses…if there is a legit desire to make sure your intimate life stays strong, then one should be willing to put forth a consistant effort to make it happen. thast not to say that life does not happen and things do not get in the way, but the dyed inthe wool lame, played out ecuses that you gave in your 9:32 will only result in you being “38 hot” when you find out your guy was hitting down the street because you built in excuses to lay down on that wifely duty….

Morning all -

I’m tall, thin, black, outgoing, and employed. I think it’s natural for me to date guys who bring the same thing to the table as I do (tall, fit, black, outgoing, employed).

Yes, I have overlooked the under 5′5″ guys. I mean 6 inches shorter, without heels?! And truth be told bite sized men aren’t trying to date me either. :lol:

But in recent times, I am considering the introverted guys and the guys with man boobs. An unemployed, non-black, the mama’s boys and the too young/too told guys would really have to be special. But it’s possible.

I think most people start to evaluate their dating choices once they stop getting dates or keep dating losers. I’m not quite there yet. LOL

HiYas!

can’t open the article w/o freezing my lap, so i’ll have to rely on blog comments to follow what it says. first thing that comes to my mind is who is doing the “overlooking”? are we implying that a physically fit person is overlooking someone who is overweight? or that a corporate exec is overlooking a cashier? i think those things are common and understandable. but if one overweight exec overlooks another because of the other person’s weight issue, now that’s an interesting situation. s/o and i were talking about the automatic perception if you see an attractive or younger woman with an unattractive or older man vs. the reverse. we make different assumptions in each case.

i like Amia’s comment. i like that you’re making an effort to see something deeper. but i ask, are you completely disregarding physical appearance in order to get to know a person’s core? or is it still the aesthetics that makes you want to know more about him?

Hi Simple! Hi Red! C’mon back Roni :lol:

Red, did you know the guy had no flava or was a neanderthal BEFORE you really got to know them though? did they initially seem like your usual fit?

Under 5′5 – um, yeah…no.

Introverted Guys – Are not as quiet as they think they are. TheDude *could* be described as introverted, but those who know him, know better.

No Flava – Flava is in the eye of the beholder.

Non-Black – been there, done that, got the t-shirt.

Momma’s boys – well, it depends. If he has a healthy respect for his momma and treats her well, that’s one thing. If his momma is still picking out the clothes that he wears to work, RUN! FAST!

Long Distance – no thanks.

Unemployed – seriously?!?

Too Young/Too Old – To each his own, TheDude is five years younger than me, but who cares?

Man-Boobs – This *used* to be a disqualifier, but I learned better. However, obesity is not sexy, nor is it healthy and I will take a pass on that.

Cave-Man – Um, yeah…no, don’t know how they’d get pass “Hello” with THAT description. Ain’t no-damn-body desperate around here.

I totally agree with you. I am up first, get both kids ready and fed, and make the coffee for both of us. Drive both to school…my wife gets up, gets herself ready…just goes to work.

She picks the kids up, complains about how I get home late (I get to work well after her as I go in late because I drop off the kids) and about how she has to make dinner. (Yeah…she cooks..I clean up every night).

After cleaning up the kitchen..I give the kids baths..(yeah me!) and put them to bed. Wifey..sits and watches tv. She does do laundry…I do all of the yardwork.

So whats up with the no bedroom olympics? She is tired. From what?

Too me its all excuses. Woman complain that they cannot find a good man. They get one and do nothing with him.

I feel bad for guys who do have alot going for themselves. Seems today there are to many gold diggers and not enough every day diamonds to choose from.

The guys that seem to get the best woman are the jerks. This then turns women into crazies…because after making their bad choices in men they take it out on the real every day underrated types.

czB – Straight from the article –

“Long before Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian and Beyonce, men have appreciated an ample derrière. Since the beginning of time, a woman with a larger back was viewed as feminine and beautiful. But before you invest in butt implants or make a smaller investment in the Booty Pop (on sale at Target for only $20… yes, I had to research that), know that men DO have love for the ladies with a Jr. Booty. Remember, it’s all about proportion — as long as your hip to waist ratio is 70% or less (divide your waist measurement by your hip measurement to determine), you have a figure that will make most men look twice.”

I look over everyone I need to look over. Healthy is the major physical quality I look at. Mentally sane, has lived some life and has come from a strong involved family. I don’t not like the extra big butts and huge boobies. When I date a woman I think long term and why invest in something I know will eventually sag at some point….more than the women who are equipped with the smaller ones. Ambition is very important to me as well, I overlook those who have none or are fearful of stepping out of their comfort zones.

there’s a price we pay for trying to do it all. i think in some ways, everyone in the household pays a bit of that price. but of course, that’s just my opinion.

Morris – All I’m saying is that there HAS to be more there than what he is telling you. Because ALL of those women turn out like that? ALL of em? As a woman, I just can’t see how it is all on us. Especially since I know there are women who arent about it.

BUT, I do think it’s good he finds this out before he gets married. He’d be bled dry! I’m glad he’s also looking to you for advice.

I’m not sure of what I consider “overlooked.” Any person I gave a pass on was a choice…. for whatever reason. I will not go back and re-examine to see if I missed out on a good one…lol It may be a bit pretention but whether it was due to looks, character, baggage, I have to decide what’s not good for me and stick to it. Nope, didn’t overlook a thing. I hope I don’t offend because I’m not aiming at any particular person but these polls and discussion and articles and shows and colummns and lists makes me feel like, honestly folks just need to up the ante on standards. Seriously, I’m not doing, dating loving, liking someone not suited for me or I just didn’t like or wasn’t feeling…point blank.

So, either he has been dealing with chicks that he had no real feelings for….or…he believes that his money should not enter into a relationship at all. Cause some folks IS paranoid about the little bit of change they have stuck under the mattress or buried in the backyard.

There is somebody for everybody. The key is to look for and be willing to get with the one that is looking for and willing to get with you.

Those “most desirable” that society has painted as such are very much the ones that have no interest in being in meaningful long lasting relationships. And they pretty much have not much to offer to a relationship nor are willing or wanting to.

“Good” is a completely relative term. “Good for you” and “good to you” aren’t that easy.

Maybe, it was simple for you. But out there in the streets, it’s rough. Everyone has there own problems, issues, and dealbreakers, combined with a past, bad experiences, and personalities. He!!, just dealing with those things alone whittle down your options.

My favorite line from Social Network when Mark Zuckerberg’s girlfriend was breaking up with him:
“You are probably going to be a very successful computer person. But you’re going to go through life thinking that girls don’t like you because you’re a nerd. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that won’t be true. It’ll be because you’re an asshole.”

“Overlooked” people often invent these reasons (too short, too independent, too successful, blah blah blah) why they’re overlooked, but usually the problem is with them. Embrace yourself, be confident, and treat people right. Do that, and you will have no problem meeting people.

@lay in low, maybe so, but the other fact is that she is BOOORRRRIIING. Even when the dinner or other event happens, she was boring and complained. That’s the whole schtep, she has an agenda and the hubby has outlived his usefulness, apparantly. We might be more apt to DO some of the trips and other things if she would at the very least act like she has a pulse instead of using it as simply a time to “go somewhere else”. It doesn’t make any difference if we go to maui, Grand Caymen or just down the street to a Bed and Breakfast if she’s gonna do the same thing there as she did when we were at home, lie around, rest, sleep, read a book. I can keep my money in the bank account and let her do that at home. Maybe she IS bored, but dammit, so am I. And it isn’t because the scenery hasn’t changed.

I don’t know what to tell him with that…except. Stop pulling out your wallet and doing anything. See how that goes. If a woman stays around with you doing the minimum for a long time…then maybe she’s cool enough to pull out the wallet more often.

His major gripe is not size, shape or height. It always seems to boil down to “they are always trying to get in my billfold quickly”… sad…

The only good beaches I know of are at least a 4 hours drive away.
Do I…?

a) Tell him there is no way I am driving 4 hours away from my baby and be gone all day from him

b) Get some here to make the pool ready, pull out the poolside loungers and be prepared to man the grill and put together some nice summer drinks

Or

c) Pack the picnic basket, grab the sunscreen for the toddler, know that God has his hands of protection around the little squid anyway and hop in the wagon headed for a nice relaxing Wednesday afternoon at the beach

I take your point.

But rarely do people meet, date, and fall in love with one person? If not, then the process may have something to do with.

As for tolerance levels, standards and the like, most of that comes when you know yourself enough to have those things and recognize them in other people.

I’m not saying there’s no fault to be shared, but life ain’t lived like Rockwell or Disney, so just stating what “should be” often leaves out what “is”.

Dan, I know I have lived tough times in regards to dating being left at the “altar” was the most heartbreaking of them all. This is not directed towards you. I just don’t get people who say they keep meeting the same “type” obviously something has to change. Look in different areas or stop making the same mistakes. The first two times can be chalked up to “life and bad choices” anything after that a major change needs to be made internally. I don’t know, I just don’t go for excuses.

@Morris- your broher-in-law seems like a decent dude, I will come from a different angle, and give him the benefit of the doubt. He may not be leading with his wallet, he could simply be old school dude and believe a man should pay the majortiy of the time (which is cool). I know plently of men like this. You try and offer to pay, and their like ‘No,no I got this’. So some women will see an opportunity to take advantage.

But if he was my kinfolk, the advice I would give is- if he is doing most of the initiating, like calling to set-up dates, paying for dates, and she is not initiating then maybe she is not interested. He should get creative with dates. Find dates he can go with them that don’t cost much, or are inexpensive. If she gripes abuot you not spending then that will give you an indication what she’s after.

If a person is interested and like you, they will meet you half way.

It’s only natural when men and women gather.

I was watching ‘How I Met Your Mom’ last night and it was about the dangers of having close friends of the opposite sex when you are married or non-single.

One of the men was saying how when a man befriends a woman, no matter how unattracted to her he is intimately, the longer he is around her and the more time he spends with her the more he risk her evolving from a manatee to a mermaid.

And he pointed out the fact that it has nothing to do with how great of a relationship he is already in. Don’t be getting all buddy-buddy hanging out with your opposite sex friend alone.

As for the line about the Kardashians, these days, I’d pick Kourtney over Kim in a heartbeat.

DJSnip, that’s what everybody says but it has nothing to do with how much you trust your wife and she trust you. That’s where so many get caught. Your wife trusting you does not stop certain natural processes from taking place when dealing in certain situations. You cannot stop nature from working merely based on “my wife trust me”. You can make the choice to knock down and not give in to that inkling of attraction that may rear its ugly head. But your wife’s trust in you does not and cannot prevent that attraction from trying to form.

Everybody automatically goes to “we don’t have trust issues in our relationship” when that is not even in question.

This is just sad. I’m calling flag on the play. This is classic unsportsmanlike behavior. Just sad I tell ya. These dudes on here whining like victims. If dudes on death row can get and keep a woman how in the Sam heyal cant a dude with supposedly good trriats not get and keep one? BS and sad all at once.
Take it from me, I am just a regular guy. Some days if I’m feeling myself I can be extra-regular (shout out to whomever on the blog coined that phrase). I am whats considered under-rated but definitely not overlooked. I dont have the handsome pretty boy looks. I cant walk in a bar and pull whatever I want. I’m not the mad bomber that can have a woman swooning in a hour. I know my lane. I have patience and a very personable attitude. I’m introverted to a point and have become a very good listener. I’ve been blessed since a Teenager to always be on the receiving end of how the heyal he got her comments. I’ll take that anyday over all this whining I’m hearing today. Just sad I tell ya.

Let me ask you this, if your wife did not trust you how does that affect whether or not you become even the slightest bit attracted to another woman? Being that her trust cannot control your chemical working but only your reaction to it.

I heard my dad tell my oldest brother once, “that’s why married men go home where they belong”. And the same goes for women.

I laugh every time the subject comes up and the first thing people say is “we don’t have trust issues in our relationship”. That’s all good, fine and dandy, but what does that have to do with the natural course of things taking place. The thing we have to make sure is to not act on those feelings and knocking them down the second they arise. Men and women are programmed to be attracted to each other. Spending mounds of time, like you said, can lead to that happening.

1) Money is the best aphrodesiac. There is no such thing as a homely millionaire who is single.

2) Women are basically self-destructive, and prefer the men who are, too. So women are attracted to the risk-taker and non-committed man, and ignore the good and honest guys who dress below their means.

3) Intelligence is not a selection factor in evolution. Women are not attracted to smart men, only to husky ones. Meanwhile, most men are terrified of smart women (especially those smart women with a good sense of humor!).

4) Alpha, Beta and Gamma women go after alpha males. No one goes after the men who are second place (beta) or third place (gamma) in the male heirarchy. Anyone (male or female) who is independent and doesn’t play power games, is of course, suspect.

5) Women claim to want sensitive men, who they dispise. Men claim to want independent women, who they despise.

6) For best results, ignore love or chemistry, and look for someone to have a good marriage contract with. Will they nurture the family? Provide for the family? Be honest and loyal and committed to their family? If so, they area better match than the latest love fling will ever be.

@SC

Not fo pages ago, one dude was getting questioned about a lady that held an attraction for him and told him this weekend.

Three posts later “didn’t the flirting give you a sign?”

There are those that hold you accountable irregardless of who’s throwing draws.

i guess blackfoote chooses NOT to explain (to us) why no more meetups with ms. leggs.
Or maybe he really shook her insides loose a couple times and doesn’t want to blow her cover (luv ya Leggs). Good lookin out Blackfoote.

You come ’round with your smooth talk, then Bam you put a sista on the curb. Light his arse up!
Didn’t I just comment last week about how evil women can get when they get rejected, and I was specifically talking about puddy. No, transaction even occurred in this scenario, and the pitchforks and tar and feather are all ready to go.

Ain’t gonna lie, I saw a fine line getting drawn with all the hero remarks. Too much of that will transform you into B.A.B. But I didn’t say nothing because I didn’t want to be that girl. The meanie that calls out the B.A.B. plays. I played nice and waited for you to transform on your own. :)

@SexyC ~ I hope your 4:03 isn’t directed at me. Never threw any draws, no sexual innuendos, no kiss, no hugs. I simply was being honest. We bloggers meet each other all the time, and we act like we haven’t. A few wondered if we’ve met and I was honest about it. However, for any of you who feel like SexyC :arrow: “Why didn’t you like me? What’s wrong with me?” you are wrong. I don’t think like this.

Ok, this has backfired and I’m good with it. If I look foolish in any of your eyes, there’s nothing I can do about it because I know me.

Raqi You better enjoy yourself, or fake it real good because if you don’t then he’ll be miserable too. He’ll regret wanting to go to the beach in the first place. If you don’t really want to go or have reservations, then speak your peace now. Don’t get that man to the beach and then have the pouty face the whole time. lol

No, Leggs. It was not directed at YOU…it was directed at the message in that particular comment (that was not posted by you.) I know you better than that.

But yeah…I do believe that the tone of the postings came across quite a bit different than was intended.

DreamsMat, I am good with going. I just didn’t want to go too far from my baby but SC gave me the idea to go to Lake Lanier which is not too far. I asked him and he is good going there.

If it’s a nice day tomorrow he is just going to sit in his beach lounger and sleep while I read. Or maybe look in on yall.

If the weather turns out not to be to good after we get there then we will try to get a room where he will sleep while I read. Or maybe look in on yall. LOL

@Celisea ~ no, they’re cutting into me too. It’s all good. I think most are missing the boat on what I was “trying” to say. Was nothing about being kicked to the curb, or “why don’t you like me”, or “hmmm, something must be wrong with you if you don’t want me.” Sheesh. Nothing like that at all. But, since that’s the way it has come across, I can still only laugh at it. NEXT…..

Honestly, I didn’t read it that way. You know I would have said so. I thought it was all in fun. Heck I didn’t know. And honestly, I thought folks was just cutting up on Blackfoote mostly. But like I said, from my perspective, no worries :) I bet there are stories that could fry the blog :)

czBrat – LOLOL, it’s started already. On her 2nd paycheck (since we eat out weekends), I said I’m not going anywhere I’m eating at home. She looked at me as if I’d grown two heads and said “oh, I wasn’t planning to spend my money.” Great. I can use that as leverage. You want you spend. If you don’t, I’m surely not buying. She even asked, ummm if I buy my pantyhose for church will you pay men back. Of course I had to be resuscitated from passing out from laughing at that statement.

You people are funny! I think the most important thing in finding someone to date is honestly, no lying, yes a good looking man is always nice but that isn’t going to make it work on someones looks for a man or a women. Best thing is to find someone who treats you right, most people ignore signs (myself included) that we will fail with the relationship, some stay and then get married cause of time they put into or maybe the girl so hot! i have known several guys to stay with a girl who was the “hot chik” only to have years of hard times ahead but the writing was there , most people do not get better they get worse.
