Good Guy Theory
So, here’s what I’m thinking. All of us girls want a “good guy.” But, by my experience, the guys that claim to be the good guys are actually nothing of the sort. They seem to be good guys at first, but they eventually reveal their true colors. And then you feel disappointed and fooled because you thought you had a good guy on your hands, and how could you have been so wrong? (Because, we all know that it’s totally your fault for not knowing better. Not his fault for being a jerk.)
So here’s what I’m thinking: I no longer want a good guy. I want a bad guy. Someone who is definitely going to break my heart, treat me badly, probably tell a lie or two and be completely unreliable and inconsiderate. But, they will do it in an honest and upfront way – with no claims to do otherwise. At least then I’ll know what I’m gonna get. No false advertising. Like, when I buy Food Lion-brand macaroni and cheese, I know it’s completely possible that it’s going to be gross and I might find a foreign object or two in the noodles. And, every once in awhile, the cheese mix will be missing from the box all together. Because that just happens sometimes. But, it didn’t claim to be The Cheesiest or best macaroni and cheese. It just is what it is, cheap macaroni and cheese that is satisfying enough and will save me 20 cents.
So, if you know any bad guys, be sure to send them my way. And if you are a guy out there that claims to be a good guy? Time to change your marketing strategy, cause I’m on to you.
PS: Am I the only one who thinks we need an Angie’s List or Better Business Bureau for men? A place where you can type in your potential suitor’s name, and get real-time reviews of the experiences other women had with them, including how many stars out of five they are? Perhaps we could have different categories, including Personality, Looks, Trustworthiness, Sexual Abilities…. How awesome would that be?!
