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.

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! :)

Sequel: Girls, why are they so confusing? One minute they like you, the next they don't. Jk. ;) this is true though. Guys are weird. Nice work. =)

Well, while I do understand where you are coming from, I have to say that this is not the case everywhere in the world. Each culture has their own idea of pretty and what is beautiful. And guys don't just only go for the blondes. But I do agree that this is a stereotype that should be broken---what should matter more is on the inside.

i've noticed that if you look hard enough and don't hide (not saying you do) and show your true self, you should be you and get someone like your self. my boyfriend is the same as me....... just be yourslef... he got made fun of 'cuz hes goth, so did i for the same reasons.... him being himself and me being myslef is what got us together........... be yourself and you'll get yours :) trust me....

That's a stereotypical, jerk guy. A guy worth your time is nothing like this. If a guy is asking for anything more than a girl with their idea of a beautiful personality, you should stay away from them. A guy who looks for eye candy isn't worth your time. There are really great guys out there you just have to avoid the jerks that have become our stereotype.

True; girls believe we only look at their breats, body, and face. -_-'

sometimes it is true, i make guys wscared of me so when i think they are looking, i can get the truth..... most of the time they look at my breasts, not the "oh i was just checking out your shirt design" but your guys so i expect that, it's normal....just look up occasionally...... faces can be as pretty too

yes, 21% of guys (i surveyed 100) look at the face of a girl, 79 others look mainly at ur chest........... just saying, girls look at eyes, smile, body, how much your around them.... we don't look at your junk do we??????

It does also depend on the group of guys you survey, or even the area you live in. I think its also safe to assume that there are girls who look at more than just some ones eyes and smile.

okay, the other one i posted got took down, but still there are girls that look at that stuff on guys,some do some don't...... same with guys.......example this boy stares at my b.oobs ALL the time. whenever we take tests and al he looks there.... he even admitted it, then he asked if i could give him a bj.

you have to understand that guys are a lot more visual than girls ( its been proven.) In general, guys look at appearances , then when they get to know that girl, that's when they decide if they like them or not. But for girls, guys don't display as much as girls, ( body parts) so girls tend to mature faster and have to rely on other things to find that they like in a guy rather than physical features.

I understand that but its just the fact that he stares at her and asked for a bj. I understand that guys are its just... guys like him. I was a little harsh saying that and i shouldn't have been, and I apologize.
