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.

Guys like the cheereleeders now because they are confident, I know, I have cheereleeders for sisters, and they get a lot of boys, but I see that they dont keep relationships long. Once guys mature, they start looking for forever kind of relationships. Thats when girls like us shine. :)

i agree, pretty girls cant keep the boys forever. and wen the boys get their hearts broken by a pretty little blonde chearleader, our true colors will stick out.

I don't agree with this. I think it's that those "cookie cutter cheerleaders" have more confidence in themselves. They are taught that they are what guys want and so we are conditioned to be down on ourselves and they are conditioned to be confident. Boys like confidence. In my opinion anyway. I know a lot of brunettes with green, blue or brown eyes that have gotten their fair share of gorgeous guys nice guys. We can't blame it on looks. Not all guys like blondes.

Really?? What does hair color have to do with it? I'm a blonde with hazel eyes and im not a cheerleader. Sure guys are confusing, but the ones shallow enough to care about hair color an't be considered guys anyways...more like imature boys. That's my opinion.

i mean no offence to blondes, most boys just seem to like them better

colour has nothing to do with why a guy would like a girl... its many things, like attitude, reaction, and mostly how you feel around the girl. most guys would go for the girls that make them feel good, and leave behind pleasant memories.

Most girls that guys consider as girlfriends are actually just like best friends of the same gender...

I agree with this article completely. I'm a brunette and a total nerd so I don't really have a lot of guys falling all over themselves to meet me. Guys are really confusing.

I'm blonde, and I have blue eyes, and I can assure you that I do not have boys throwing themselves at me.  


And, honestly, we aren't really any less shallow than boys are.  Every girl out there has this idealized version of the perfect guy; six-pack abs, sensitive, trustworthy, and only has eyes for you.  But that's just what it sounds like, to good to be true.

As a girl I have to say that we are shallow too. we go for the hot, popular jocks. im not saying guys aren't cause they are even more than girls....sometimes. we say looks don't matter but they do. If you enter a room and u look around for someone to talk to, u'll go the cute guy or girl first. Its human nature.

Boys always go after blondes yes, but I have a boy going after me and I am a brunette, and he tries to get me to be jealous by saying he is going out with a blonde when he is not. True, boys only care about being popular.

"Pretty" is such a general word. Each boy defines "pretty" in a different way. Some boys are superficial and goes for the girls with the best looks, but very few do. Most boys define "pretty" as a nice smile and friendly personality.

The "flirtatious, blonde-hair, blue-eye cheerleader" is a total stereotype. I am a brunette, but I still disagree with it completely. I know countless blondes who don't fit that stereotype in any way whatsoever!

I think that it is very rude that boys like me only date blonde and others. I don't date.

I'm not trying to cause bad feelings, but y do u believe it is truly rude to guys, if they only choose the blonde girls instead of the brown haired girls (like me). Like I said I'm not trying to cause bad feelings, I just want to understand y u believe it is rude. :)

That is sorta rude to the blonde haired blue eyed girls. My friend is blonde haired blue eyed girl and she is not so happy with her life right now. That is not how everthing ends.
