Why do boys always go for the pretty girls? They have to have the blonde hair and blue eyes! But what about the girls with dark hair and green eyes? Aren't they pretty too? Boys always go for the pretty girls, they want to look popular with those girls and be considered cool cause they go out with the "cute" girls! What's so cute about a ton of blonde cheerleaders thinking they're better then everyone else? In all the movies the blonde cheerleader has the guy at the beginning but then, in the end, the brunette get's him. Why can't it be like that in reality? Boys are so confusing. One moment they are together with the geeky girl, the next moment they are dancing at prom with a cheerleader. Why can't the girls that make sense and are beautiful in there own way be loved. Why are boys so cute, yet so hard.

So you can never really understand why boys do what they do why they're so weird why they're so good at math and reading you'll just never understand

Some boys are weird and some are smart and some are dumb and some are cute and some are ugly some like the pretty girls that are cheerleaders

Bravery is not the absence of fear but rather the knowledge that something else is more important

I think teenagers in general are confusing. We just can't seem to make our minds up what we want! Do we want true love, or popularity? Do we want someone who can make us laugh, or someone who can fufill our physical needs?

Goodness. Everyone's confusing, especially in adolescent and young adult years...all those hormones. But trust me, the guy you want isn't going to be all over the place or ignoring you. The guy you want is the one who is always there no matter what. Trust me. In high school, I foolishly stuck with someone I didn't really have feelings for and I'm pretty sure we were both miserable. Meanwhile, one of my best friends (he was always around, always ready with a smile and a compliment) waited patiently until I split it off, then admitted he had feelings for me. We both moved, so we're not together yet, but we're figuring things out and I'm optimistic about "us". Even if we don't end up together, I know that he's going to be a lifelong friend. Hang in there, girls! If you ignore the jerks and have a little patience, you'll find your man. Or he'll find you. Please don't saddle yourself with the wrong guy in high school. Whether it lasts or not, it /will/ break your heart. Trust me, having no boyfriend in high school doesn't hurt nearly as much as having the wrong one- the pain of being "alone" will fade, because you are never really alone. Even though it hasn't gotten less confusing yet, I do know one thing: not to waste your time on guys who don't think you're worth theirs. If he's always there, has a sincere compliment for every occasion, and makes you happy, take his hand and never let go.

I agree with you, boys are honestly so confusing. They have practically no space for Asian girls, they don't even bat an eye on us. They always focus on the classic blonde girl and have interests in only them. Boys are so cute, yet they are so hard.

This article express me. Boys love blonde girls because they are more attractive then girls with black hair

saying that boys only fall inlove with blonde hair, blue eyes is very stereo typical. I have blonde hair and blue eyes and no boys go for me. But I agree that boys are confusing but for other reasons

that's true. Although the statement that it's too opinionated.. it's in the opinion section for a reason

Opinions everywhere, you can not judge a boy's taste in girls. Do not use your bad experience against boys. This is way too opinionated and is plain bad.

I completely agree with u!! Why cant boys just love a girl for who they are and not because of what they look like or if they are popular. All girls, no matter what colour or religion, are beautiful in their own way. Just a quick tip: Don't change urself for a guy. You are beautiful in ur own way and there is a boy out there who will see that and love u for who u r :)

Seriously, though, Guys and girls brains are made up differently. Us girls think differently than guys. What we think is not, necessarily, what they think. But, I agree with you wholeheartedly.

Boys aren't confusing neither are girls we just have a different view of things in the world.

To all the girls out there, You are more beautiful and precious than you know.The most beautiful person you can be is you. (Not the cheerleaders,thought this is for you too.) Don't let a guys decision change YOU. I'm sure the guy himself doesn't have it all together either. If he doesn't see the rare beauty that is held inside of you, then honestly he doesn't deserve you. I'm not saying don't give him a chance, he might end up being the guy for you. And if he's not , just know that it's not over and learn from your mistakes. Have courage and know there is a greater force than humanity can imagine, that loves you with all his heart NO MATTER WHAT. Good luck!
