Why are boys so confusing?

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.

Just be patient and look for somebody who chooses you for you and don't be so picky as to turn them down because they don't meet your standards of attractive. Somebody that you don't find beautiful or handsome could be the kind of person who will go to the ends of the Earth for you because they have that kind of heart. Physical beauty can easily be marred by a foul personality. As the witches say in Macbeth: "Fair is Foul and Foul if Fair..."

Boys, when you leave them, and they are with another girl is because it shows you that they moved on, and they are wanting to be in love or is really a real jerk.

Because teenagers are brought up on visuals. Boys and gilrs alike prefer to base decisions on looks before depth. It is a sad truth, and an unfortunate one not changing any time soon. However, with time comes experience, and with that comes a better understanding of what's truly important. Keep your chin up, don't lose faith, and you'll make it there.

Not all boys prefer pretty and/or girls with blond and blue eyes. That's not entirely true.    I agree, that sometimes boys can be confusing and hard to understand. But don't you sometimes wonder, if we're like that to boys too? Or maybe even more to boys?    And also, the right one will love you for who you ruly are, if you are willing to wait patiently.    You have talent and greatness in you; I hope you know that. Your article is amazingly... (more »)

Yea, I am a boy and I do not like the "populer" girls...I go for the girls that I honestly like that have a good personality :3 I just like to be with girls that have a good personality. Not populer girls.

ok so im going to have to disagree, because im a guy and i dont like blondes with blue eyes. Thats really stereotypical and hurts a bit. I hate that classic cheerleader popular girl that everyone wishes they had, I prefer brunettes with dark eyes and with a personality instead of a pretty face and body with nothing in between their ears. Sure a girl might not have as cute a body as the next one but as long as she has personality and characteristics to match mine i'd prefer her. I like skinny... (more »)

Thank you. I also felt slightly offended by this; it's very stereotypical and slightly sexist. I'd like to write an answer article, to be honest. I am a comeplete feminist, but this goes beyond feminism and is sexist.

As a girl, this slightly offended even me. We stereotype guys all the time for "liking/desiring" what we think is a social norm of popularity, but at the same time, we girls can be stereotyped as only liking jocks or guys with sexually appealing bodies. Personally, I prefer a tall guy (that hasn't stopped me from dating somebody closer to my height before) with a bit of meat on his bones. Too much muscle can be unattractive and frankly, harder to hug.

Aw. It's nice to hear that, because I have no muscle whatsoever (;-;) Well, I did notice how she mentioned "Boys always go for the pretty girls" in such a way that made it sound like she wasn't pretty or like the girls men don't fall in love with aren't pretty. That's very untrue, because in my personal belief, every woman is beautiful. Sometimes men don't date beautiful women because they simply aren't attracted to them or don't wish to enter a meaningful relationship with them.
