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.

not all guys are like that. And some girls are. I am a guy and i look for personality. And to be honest some guys are just shy and scared to talk to the pretty girls. They may feel as if there not good enough. and as for the guys that only look for looks there usually dbags. there are plenty of nice guys out there just look around. The sad thing is those guys are usually the less attractive guys or are the ones that girls ignore

What you say is ture. Some guys are just shy. I'm friends with mostly everyone. Mabye the guys at me school are just scared to admit they like us less popular girls. They just need time to get the courage.

Listen girlfriend!  That is sooo not true! I am a person of male species, and I'm not confusing.  Also, there are many cheerleaders that are not blonde. You didn't know that? Hmm?  I'm sorry that your boyfriend left you for a cheerleader.  But, that's only one person. Good writing by the way. I feel ya! :D

Wow. Jealous much? Hun, if you really want a guy, GET TO KNOW HIM FIRST! Guys aren't gonna fall for you just because you're pretty. And if they are, then they're obviously d-bags and not good enough for you :p

Boys have a right to feel however they wnat about anyone, it just sound like all of you are jealous of these people, what you don't know is that you are probaly more fun to be around, smarter and have a better personality just leave them to it, Its their loss

I'm blonde & blue-eyed and I don't know any guy at my school who thinks I'm hot so this is kinda stereotype. But guys at my school talk an laugh w/ me so what's that supposed to mean?

Not every guy likes those type of girls. Maybe some guys are just into those type. I mean I understand what you are saying, but at the same time it's not their fault. I use to believe that guys only choose girls for their looks, not saying that they don't, so me! But some guys aren't ALWAYS that way. I mean, there's always going to be one of the bad boys that always goes for the hot cheerleader type, whereas there will always be a guy who goes for the smart intelligent type.

Why are some teenage girls more sexist than teenage boys? Honestly, not all guys are part of this sterotypical cult of tools and d bags. Boys have hearts. It may take them more years to develop their emotions than girls, but they have emotions. And PS this article would sound just the same if the genders were switched. "Girls always fall for the muscular jock who cares about his triceps and his street cred instead of his GPA."

Yeah I have to agree with you there. Girls do tend to fall for the joks or the popular guys. I have unfortunately and I ended up getting turned down in the most horrible way possible. My self esteem is seriously too low right now....

As a guy, I can say that I base no real importance on physical appearance so much as intellect, a sense of humor and the ability to care but I see what you mean. On behalf of my gender, I apologize
