One of the blogs I like to read is by a guy who goes by Willy Wonka and he recently had a post called “What the fuck happened to you“. Now after reading it I laughed as this was one of the subjects I’ve had in my drafts since I started this blog. (I know, I know, that was only 10 days ago but it was still something I had on deck to write about) Youre probably too lazy to go over there and read it so what he talks about is running into a girl from high school and her blowing up.
If you’re younger than 24 this is a phenomenon that you are now beginning to experience but if you are 24 plus this is something you have been encountering for years. At first its quite jarring to see a girl who you at one point would have considered slapping your mother for look so unattractive, you chalk it up as a fluke occurrence but you soon realize that it’s not. Before writing this post I looked through my facebook page at a bunch of girls I went to high school with that I considered attractive. Out of this rather large sample size there were exactly 3 girls I would approach at this point sexually. 3!?!? On an unrelated note there are 4 that are married, sent me facebook messages to reconnect, and definitely want to fuck me.
There is no polite way of saying this so I’ll just go ahead and say it…..girls age in dog years. Girls hit 24 and its all down hill from there and heaven forbid they have a couple of kids it throws the aging process into warp drive. This is clearly not all women as I tend to like mine around 26, just the vast majority of them. Guys are not exempt from this aging process either as plenty of my friends from yesteryear now look much worse, it just seems that the number of women who age poorly is disproportionately higher than that of men. There are undoubtedly a host of contributing factors that lead to this from lack of physical activity (almost everyone plays some sport in high school), poor diet, curse of the Gods, slower metabolism, that all stack the deck against the aging woman.
Therein lies the problem for any emotionally shallow guy who has options. Why settle down with a girl who is inevitably going to look worse much sooner than you will when there is another 23-year-old right around the corner?
Spare me the die alone, emotional connection, true love bullshit, I’m writing this as a 30-year-old male which makes me 22 in girl years.
I’m a huge music fan so from now on if there’s something I’m feeling at the moment I’m going to throw it out there. By all means tell me you love it, hate it, or make other musical recommendations.
