We’ve become accustomed to the hot chick dating the nerd.
Typical BEAUTY AND THE GEEK scenario. Tons of movies bank on this theme. C’mon a movie with titles like, “She’s out of my league,” leaves very little gray area to its plot.
Girl meets guy. Girl is the broke man’s Megan Fox. Guy looks like Shia Labeouf if he were near-sighted, wore pocket protectors, and worked for the GEEK SQUAD.
People always wonder how such a beauty could end up with someone who wears headgear not as a fashion statement.Perhaps it’s the day-old tale of how opposites attract.
Her: Beauty is so overpowering that, of course, he would be attracted to her.
His: Intelligence and corkiness is what attracts her to him.
Together, the couple makes a complete puzzle. Separately, people don’t see the practicality of the relationship.
MOVIE: ”Love Don’t Cost a Thing”
THE PRINCE AND
We’ve seen this movie a trillion times. A prince is sick of being hooked up with royalty, and takes to the streets to find a normal (middle class, at lowest) girl.
Her: Struggling college student who aspires to be an (enter low-paying profession).
Him: Royalty from (insert unknown country) or an heir to great wealth.
UGLY BETTY MEETS HER MATCH:
Nowadays, it’s not just the guys that are scoring dime pieces. The girls are stepping up as the goofy girl next store is finally getting a chance with Dr. McDreamy.
Her: Weird secretary for an established law firm or editorial company.
Him: The firm’s prized possession or the much loved editor in chief.
RUDE BOY AND THE GOODY GOODY GUMDROP
Rihanna can’t say it enough. Girls love bad boys. They crave the adventure, the rawness, and the lust. Some say that the bigger you are, the harder you fall. I say that the nicer a girl is, the more likely she will fall for a jerk.
Her: Teaches piano lessons to the blind, volunteers at HopeLink, and nurses baby giraffes back to health.
Him: Burns buildings down with his lit cigarettes, never attends class because he never bothered to find the room, and hangs out with guys that dropped out of middle school.
COMMON CONCERNS WITH UNLIKELY ROMANCE:
• Unequal intelligence: There is usually a difference in the levels of intelligence between the two.
• Attractiveness meter: One of the individuals is significantly better looking than the other, which can spark some jealousy or low self-esteem in the other.
• Monetary funds: One person has the money in the bank, while the other is always short of it.
Love is love. Chose whoever will compliment you, regardless of what people say.
