IO: Mismatched couples irritate me

I have a very attractive and personable female friend who frequently talks about her long-term boyfriend. Yesterday, I finally met this guy...and was totally underwhelmed. He seemed to have very little personality and was average-looking at best. I understand that the politically correct thing to say is that he must make her "happy" in some intangible fashion, but, if I am to be honest, I will never understand how a match like this ever precipitated in the first place. Or maybe I am simply an asshole.

You like your atractive and personalable female friend, don't you? Hm? Oh, I think you do.

And how do we know she's attractive without pics? Nao.

Do you wish she were more than a friend?

If you do, that must be a bummer.

Yesterday, I finally met this guy
Did you go play mini-golf?

...and was totally underwhelmed.
At least they weren't trying to set you up with him.

Quote:
He seemed to have very little personality
Maybe he's just kind of shy...or he's embarrassed that his mini-golf skills pale in comparison to yours.

OH MY GOSH! THIS IS UNNACCEPTABLE! HOT PEOPLE CAN ONLY DATE OTHER HOT PEOPLE OR ELSE THE UNIVERSE ISN'T BALANCED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WORLDS ARE COLLIDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quote:

Oh, yeah, I forgot that non-hot people can still make people happy!

Quote:
but, if I am to be honest,
I'd hope that you would be, I don't like liars. Not even if they are hot.

Well...maybe just kind of judgemental.

P.S. Do you have a spork?

c'mon, sing along with doozer....


"If you wanna be happy
For the rest of your life,
Never make a pretty woman your wife,
So from my personal point of view,
Get an ugly girl to marry you.

A pretty woman makes her husband look small
And very often causes his downfall.
As soon as he marries her
Then she starts to do
The things that will break his heart.
But if you make an ugly woman your wife,
You'll be happy for the rest of your life,
An ugly woman cooks her meals on time,
She'll always give you peace of mind.

Don't let your friends say
You have no taste,
Go ahead and marry anyway,
Though her face is ugly,
Her eyes don't match,
Take it from me she's a better catch."

it i a bit ponderous when you see a really hot chick with some guy who looks like sloth from the goonies. you don't really see the opposite situation... a good looking guy with some chick who looks like shrek. probably because the guy's afraid to be seen in public with the beastoid.

i think there should be some suspensions for taking this thread off-topic after the first post. trolling, if you ask me.


headache, i've definitely noticed the same thing. i have a few couples friends who are comprised of an attractive girl and a so-so guy, but none the other way around. maybe i just don't know any good looking guys. not that i would say are good looking, of course.

on a related note, i have a friend who believes that people who get together should be proportional in size....it's a huge hang-up for him. he and his wife have all these friends whom they'd like to set up with each other because they think they'd get along great, but they won't do it because they're not the appropriate height, etc. for each other.
