OK Stupid

Warning: There are some girls out there who are quite pretty but they will ask you to take them out to a nice dinner knowing they have no interest in you before they even sit down. I don't give spare change to bums (because I can't afford to, not because I'm a jerk) so please don't take advantage of me for being a lonely person who just wants to find someone special. Such a double standard. I knew that nothing was going to come out of our meeting when she showed up and looked bored and annoyed. But I paid anyway—almost 100 dollars because I am a gentleman and because that is what is expected of me as the man. Let me also just say, in case you are wondering—I am not a bad-looking guy. Attractiveness is subjective but I'm probably a couple notches above “average.” I don't make a lot of money with my work, though, which makes me ugly as dirt to SOME women. In this instance, she had no way to know what my annual income was. I'm just a person trying to make it in the world like everyone else. I'm respectful of others, even when I'm certain they are using me for a free meal in a nice restaurant. I will go out again and treat another girl to the same date, happily. To some I might just be a meal ticket for the evening but at least I am trying and putting myself out there. And I'm a lot closer to finding someone with substance and meaning than you are, lady. —Know your gender roles
