shikashika Posted January 28, 2007 Share Posted January 28, 2007 ( I guess I'm being just as one-dimensional by making blanket-statements here.. but anyway!) I've been single for a few months now.. and every guy I've met recently seems to pigeon-hole people into categories. It really surprised me.. I know not ALL people are like this.. but ALL of the people I've met recently are... One eg. i was checking out a guy on onlinedating.. and he said "are you ineterested in fashion, music shopping, going out for martinis?... if so you are NOT the girl for me.. However, if you like mountain biking, the outdoors, traveling and sports then you ARE the girl for me" what the...??!!! Can't someone be both? another eg. I was set up by a friend of mine.. She told that guy that I really liked gym running etc. apparently he told her, " oh I like girls who like art and music, not girls who like sports" he ended up 'taking a chance' (god I hate that phrase...so patronising) on me.. and found out that wow.. actually did like going to see his art show.. he even said to me "I'm really confused, Melanie told me that you were really into mountain biking but you seem to be enjoying this gallery...and the band" My last boyfriend was like this. Very "if you like fold music, you don't like makeup, you wear long johns and wear gray socks and birkenstocks' "if you like clubbing, you like spending money on high heel shoes and make up and doing coke of the back of your hand, and spendng money on extravagent resort hotel type vacations" 'If you are the above mentioned fold-festival lover, you like going backpacking and traveling as cheaply as possible' and the list goes on and on. i just seem to be meeting all these guys recently... even friends of mine think like that I KNOW not everyone thinks like that.. but why do so many people? why can't the brownie-guide leader enjoy shopping for manolo blahniks, enjoy back country skiing for 5 days, also gets excited about the clothing sales, enjoy backpacking through India, but then loves sunbathind in St Tropez, enjoys getting together with her book club for afternoon tea and then enjoys a weekend of heli-skiing? It really befuddles me..... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
