I've been raised on the thought that women were equal to men. That women deserved to be treated like human beings, because they are. Throughout my sixteen years of existance, I've followed this rule all the time. Despite my kindness, my tendancy to treat women like people, I'm always single. It happens all the time. I just wind up being "friends" with the girl I'm interested in. It doesn't make sense to me. Normally when I tell a girl about my feelings, she either laughs and never speaks to me again, or says that she likes me only as a friend, only to wind up going out with an obnoxious bafoon who doesn't see her as a person, but more like a sex object. I don't get it. Most of the people in my school either can't think for themselves, don't know how to, or don't care to. Nearly every guy there's a jerk, and nearly every woman there acts like a ditsy and dumb broad when in reality she's really smart. I don't see how generally being a kind person isn't an attractive thing. The girls always flock to that one jackass that everyone peretends to be friends with. The guy who's obviously cheating on the girl, but she stays with him anyways. The guy who actually strikes her at times. And I'm sitting there, watching, not able to do anything. Why do women always go for that iconic "bad boy"? To spite their parents? To fill in a hole they've made themselves through their insecurity? It doesn't add up. I know that a girl would be better off with me or someone like me, than some random jackass who's in the relationship just for the sex it offers. Does anybody know why? Becasue I don't.
