I've never been attracted to bad boys. They just never had any appeal, to me. I am attracted to a range of other types, but my favorite are shy, skinny geeks with a funny sense of humor. [Smile]

Well, that or Travis Fimmel. [Razz] [thumbsup]

Nooo - they know exactly why they are unsatisfied [Smile]

I'm not defending men here, btw. My male co-workers frequently make me just want to smack them for being such creeps. I'm just saying that from my experience there is a serious trend towards the bad-boy type (and you're right - towards the ditzy blonde, too).

To those of us that pick up the pieces, this is annoying. At least the men who date the gold diggers and the airheads are (literally) only in it for appearences, the women who date bad boys get hurt.

And good for you, boo [Smile] I'm glad there are some women pre-equipped with sense in this world. I expect a large number of them are here [Big Grin]

Ok, dating airheads probably won't get you hurt too badly (though I'm not convinced those guys are completely aware of why they are unsatisfied in their relationships) but gold-diggers, or anyone that is using affection and attention as a tool to manipulate someone else into giving them what they want, can cause a lot of hurt. It seems like a lot of otherwise smart, successful, together people (men and women) repeatedly make bad choices. The kind of bad choice that everyone around them can spot but they seem unable to identify themselves. I think it's simplistic to dismiss it as "men are attracted to blondes" or "women are attracted to bad boys" when there are so many things that contribute to the partners we choose: the models our parents provided, how we feel about ourselves, social mores, media stereotypes, etc. Men are affected by all those things too. Women tend to suffer greater physical abuse than men (for a number of reasons) and they also tend to talk about their relationships and be more emotionally expressive about them (generalizations, folks) so I think that those bad relationships get more visibility.

Umm... no.

It means "For The Win"

*I can be elaborating*

In this case, spungo wins the conversation because he got it right. Love is retarded and nobody has ever made sense of it, nor will anyone do so in the future.

Consider it job security for poets and song writers.

Actually yes. Just depends on the circles you run with. FTW always meant Fsck The World the people I ran with. It was only after I got the wonderific Intarweb did I ever hear the For The Win acronym. I guess that is the beauty of Acronyms. Toss out some letters, make a phrase. It is all right.

Ever play Acrophobia, Shroom?

I haven't played in a long time, but it was a fun game.

Can't say I have, but it does look like it would be a lot of fun.
