Attraction is a funny thing. Well, funny might be the wrong word here. But I’m trying to curse less.
I’m just constantly amused and amazed by human attraction. It’s WEIRD. Really fucking weird. OK, so much for cursing less.
So here’s a little story about attraction (sloppy segue, sorry, I’m tired). I was out one night last week with a few girlfriends. We’re all around the same age, not that that matters. It was one friend’s birthday, and we were out celebrating. Since it was her birthday, we went to a bar where the guys were to her liking.
I guess I should mention that we all have very different taste in guys.
Very. Different. Taste.
At first I just thought it was mostly about age. I like ‘em older. She likes ‘em younger... You get the picture. But NO. There’s way more to it than that. We’re in this bar full of guys I might have hung out with/dated when I was 23 and my friend (the one who likes younger guys) looks around and says there were no cute guys in the place.
I look around and think, WTF? Now, I wasn’t interested. They were all WAY too young for me. But there were, in my eyes, at least a handful of cute young ones. But my opinion wasn’t the opinion that mattered. A few minutes passed and she grabs me and points out a guy she thinks is hot, standing a few feet away from us (I guess he just walked in). I nearly gagged. I would have tagged him as one of the least attractive guys in the place.
Taste. It’s fucking weird. #thatisall
