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 to be creepy but i think i'm the guy version of whoever wrote this article. I always go for the girl that follows her own path and is who she really is. i respect that so much, and im not really atracted to the falseness of the girls that you talk about. Its all about who you are. thanks for writing and speaking my mind for me.

 The same can be said for girls, but fortunatly one day they will realise, prettiness brings someone to your attention and the personality makes them worthwhile

There is nothing wrong with being a red hair. A lot of hot guys think I'm pretty and I'm I have red hair

I think that's a little bit of a generalization. I have blonde hair and blue eyes, and I have never had a single boyfriend, nor has any boy ever shown an interest in me. I think it's the TYPE of person - the cheerleaders and ... ahem, EVIL... types of girls. It's NOT just appearance.

Thank you for mentioning this! I have blonde hair and blue eyes, and I've never had a boyfriend-I'm also nineteen, by the way.

I am blond haired and blue eyed, and in real life no-one goes for that type of girl just because she has these qualities. The shallow, superficial girls in my class (I am of school age) are actually mainly brunette (this is not a dig, this is just a point) Boys go for any type of girl, its not programed into their system to only like one hair colour ect. just different qualities (sluttiness, charisma, cleverness ect) and the point Im trying to make, is that the girls you describe are sluttty, a...

this is definatly true. i am a guy and i have only been seriously interested in 2 girls, one with natural brunet hair and glasses, and the one i am about to ask out this weekend is a redhead. they are both nothing special as far as atractiveness, but what is similar with them is the way they act and dress seems to indicate that i could get along with them well. looking good defenatly helps, but dont think that means die your hair blonde for aproval. guys who are looking for something serious are...

i am a red head but i die my head BROWN never blonde because there are to many jokes for blonde girls... but i am gay so i dont have to worry about boys hitting on me or dating me because i have a girlfriend that i am engaged to but thats not the point. i changed my hair color because i was made fun of for being a read head. so i changed not for a guy or girl to like me, i changed for people to stop making fun of me.

it seems like there is alot of conflicts about what kind of girls that boys like. But what if a guy likes a girl who has brown hair but doesnt want to tell her that he likes her. What if he just dates a girl that is a cheerleader but doesnt really like her? What happens if that guy finally tells the girl his true feelings? does that mean that he is bad for liking someone who is not blonde... and to talk about that odds are the blonde cheerleaders arent even naturally blonde so the boys that fall...

Your point seems to be that guys should learn from movies and go after girls who have neither blonde hair nor blue eyes simply because the movies predict that the blonde hair blue eyed girls are not ideal for the boys. I have brown hair and brown eyes, so I'm not trying to defend the blondes or the blue eyes out there because I'm one of them. The reason why you and all the other people who agree with you don't end up with the hottest guys or the most guys is that you're idiots. Please work on yo... (more »)

alot of guys can be like that they go for looks not personality, the popular guys go out with the popular girls the ones that have amazing hair and bodys usualy they go out with them for looks.

it is possible that you can find a guy that wont want to go out with the girl wiith the amazing body and perfect skin he will choose the girl that isnt so skinny and dosnt have perfect skin

its just the way guys are made

Well, guys are just made that way. Why are girls so confused? Why are girls cunfusing? We have to answer these things about ourselves, also. I think that guys want a pretty girl to feel better about themselves and they're just for show. I feel that every girl is going to be attractive to someone else. If the guy doesn't want to be with you because he likes blonde hair and blue eyes, it's probably because that's his preference. It's not that he isn't capable of liking a girl like you, but it's be... (more »)

Pretty good article, many girls that are falling head over heals for a guy could relate. Though, honestly, what your saying isn't completely true. Guys don't only follow the blond girl, like girls, it depends on their type of finding a girl that is "pretty". Though your idea is clear and I believe many can relate! :)

Okay, speaking as a natural blonde with blue eyes who hasn't yet broke a hundred pounds... They don't ALWAYS go for the looks, and the ones that do, as was said before, generally aren't worth the time of day. Just being a blonde doesn't mean you're popular, either. ;) But, I tend to agree with the main gist of the article, guys are incredibly confusing. Not all of them are jerks, though, just remember that! :)
