Cause a Catfight

I’ve stopped a quite few fights between guys but never fights between girls, not that I would anyway since those fights tend to be vicious yet potentially entertaining.

From what I’ve seen, the fights between females were usually about some guy. I’ve only heard that there are currently more females than males in the world, but I haven’t actually seen the data on that. But if it is true, then I suspect that we will be seeing more and more women intensely competing for the attention of even the barely adequate of males.

I found this video of the Bunny Boiler from a British television show called Balls of Steel:

And here’s another one:

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Make a Commitment

I once stopped dating a girl after a mildly heated discussion about “Forget Paris”, a movie starring Billy Crystal and Debra Winger. The debate centered around whether or not a relationship is supposed to be hard work, as portayed in the movie.

I somehow held the opinion that relationships were supposed to be tough.  I don’t actually remember why I thought this since at the time, I was only in my early 20’s and have only achieved several two-week-long relationships. In no way was I an expert on the subject. But I was naive and stubborn, which was a terrible combination for a healthy debate.

Coincidentally, the discussion occurred at the end of the second week of dating the girl. So was it really the movie that made me stop calling her?

Here’s a video of Jason Biggs looking for an answer to the question most guys dread: 

Flirt Your Way Into Wealth

I didn’t know that there was another career path option I could’ve taken after college.  

Not that it would’ve really been an option for me since the job actually does require charm and good looks. 

Had the job only needed a vast knowledge of Saved by the Bell trivia and Color Me Badd lyrics, then I would’ve been soooo in.

Break Hearts

I didn’t do a lot of dating in high school. It was primarily because when I liked a girl, I spent most of my time focused on that person even if she wasn’t really that interested. I was young, naive, and didn’t know any better.

In retrospect, I should have been more man-whorish so that at least my Friday and Saturday nights wouldn’t have been spent hanging around video arcades and going on late night donut runs to Safeway.

Check out how Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame handles his heartthrob status when he visits a building full of Japanese schoolgirls… (warning: may cause temporary deafness)

Honestly though, I’m not sure if I would’ve been able to handle the responsibility of being a socialite. Besides, I really liked those half-priced donuts.

Break Social Barriers

Back when I was in high school, girls placed a guy into one of four categories:

  • “Cute”: He was pretty much the guy who got away with anything. He set trends and never had problems getting dates on Saturday nights. His confidence was reinforced by the barrage of candygrams during Valentine’s Day. Some girls even pretended he was funny even though they were mainly laughing because he’s cute. Sometimes he was referred to as “sooo cute”.
  • “Funny”: He may not have been the best looking guy around, but he still managed to be surrounded by girls. He was charming and even his fellow guys respected him. Some of those who were referred to as “sooo funny” by the girls even made the jump to the “cute” category at times.
  • “Nice”: It was the category most guys dreaded falling into. He was the guy that girls ask about homework. He was the reliable lab partner. He was the guy that the other guys trust with their girlfriends. He sometimes was able to jump to the “funny” category, but almost never to the “cute” category.
  • “Who?”: He was not really placed in a category at all. In fact, girls rarely acknowledged him, and when they did, they referred to him as “that guy who…” (e.g. “that guy who wears that same unicorn t-shirt everyday”, “that guy who wears a cape”, or “that creepy guy who keeps smelling my hair in Algebra”)

Anyway, I found this short film on YouTube that illustrates the plight of the common “nice guy”.
