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.

Hey! Have you ever even bothered to get to know a cheerleader. I'm a cheerleader and I have the best grades in my class.  Actually, most everyone on the JH squad is really smart and nice

Yeha I think its more of tht ppl think of cheerleaders as blonde, blue eyed, and sorta bratty or popular or whatever, like in chic flicks and stuff. But I agree with you, my best friend is a cheerleader and she's really nice, but there are some that I no that can be really bratty, so it depends on the person and you shouldn't judge ppl by whether they are a cheerleader or not.

Brunettes outnumber blondes on our cheer team, and the majority are super funny and smart. However, the cheer captain has a smile so big that looks like it will BITE YOUR HEAD OFF not even joking. She kinda scares me...

OMG!!! I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THIS ARTICLE. All of the cute guys are either gay or they are with the 'popular' girls. what about the rest of us? the girls who are smart, but not ready  to put themselves out there like the populars? we deserve cute cool guys too!!!

In my school, the "popular cheerleaders" are a mix of african american, asian, brunette, and blonde. i don't really think it has to do with hair color, its confidence. The "popular" girls are generally a lot more confident, which makes them seem prettier. The "geeky" girls are always hiding, never making an effort to be more confident. in reality, they won't be noticed because they don't try. Also, if you really wanted this article to be taken seriously, watch out for run on sentences and gramme... (more »)

Boys like what they see, so that's what they go for. They don't have the patience to go beyond a girl's looks to see them as who they really are. That's why they always go for the cheerleader type of girl, because that's what they think is beautiful. They're just too shallow to consider personality.

Hey that's funny I like! I know, I'm brunette and it feels like boys drool over blondes but ignore other pretty girls. Sometimes I wish guys could love or crush someone for their pretty PERSONALITY, not hair color. *sigh*
