The Undateables

There is a British TV show called The Undatables where people with physical or mental disabilities are trying to find a date. It’s kind of sad and I feel sorry for these people because I know what it’s like. Specifically, there are a few people who were good looking but then they had some kind of accident or illness that left them disfigured or disabled.

These people talk about how they had no trouble getting dates until their illness. There was one woman who was beautiful, then she had most of her nose and lips removed. Then should couldn’t get dates any more. This proves that looks do matter. I am so sick of people saying that looks don’t matter and it’s all about personality and “confidence.” The people in this TV show have the same personality before and after their accidents. So then why can’t they get dates after?

It is an insult to tell someone that they can have a girlfriend/boyfriend if they just had “confidence.” That is the word I would hear all the time. It insults my intelligence. I am going to assume that there are men who feel the same way I do. Maybe some women too, but I’m not sure. I think most people who are unattractive know that they are unattractive. I know I am. I’m not stupid. I know what I look like. I know what good looking men look like, and they don’t look like me. I know the kind of guy that women go for.

Good looking men get good looking women. That’s how it works. Don’t lie to me and tell me that I can have that attractive woman if all I do is blah blah blah. Like there is some magic word I have to say and that is going to trick this woman into falling in love with me. Some people are attractive, some people are not. That is the reality. Good looking people have the luxury of sitting on a high horse and claiming that they chose their bf/gf based on personality. But whenever I say that I want a good looking woman, I’m accused of being shallow.

We are all shallow. Sure, you can find some examples here and there that go against my theory, but the vast majority of cases are exactly how I’ve described it. Don’t insult those of us who are “aesthetically challenged.”

Sometimes this is for the best. You know, I always thought that being in a relationship with a beautiful girl was my ultimate goal, too- until I actually managed to get close to a few of them. I found them to be shallow, money-hungry shysters who dated dudes to get quick and easy cash, and nothing more. I know not all girls are like this, but I count being single as a blessing after what I saw and heard when I was hanging around the “popular” girls in high school.

Remember, you can be a happy bachelor. If women choose not to pursue you, it’s their loss, and when they find themselves growing into old maids all alone, they’ll regret wasting large portions of their life chasing after the Tom Cruise-types and not settling down with a guy such as yourself when they had the chance. Not trying to be spiteful, but they’ll miss you a lot more when they grow old then you will them.

Sometimes, too, there are women who realize that looks aren’t everything as they grow older. Perhaps you’ll meet someone you love later in life, who knows.

I think, too that this has more to do with dating in general than with being “unattractive”. Unfortunately, in this post-feminism society, we men are objected to a whole lot more objectification than our grandfathers and fathers were. Women don’t need to be married to live fulfilling lives, which is a good thing, but it has the unfortunate side effect of meaning that fewer and fewer women will settle for an “average joe”. It’s a fact of the world we live in, and we all just need to learn how to cope.
