Why do boys always go for the pretty girls? They have to have the blonde hair and blue eyes! But what about the girls with dark hair and green eyes? Aren't they pretty too? Boys always go for the pretty girls, they want to look popular with those girls and be considered cool cause they go out with the "cute" girls! What's so cute about a ton of blonde cheerleaders thinking they're better then everyone else? In all the movies the blonde cheerleader has the guy at the beginning but then, in the end, the brunette get's him. Why can't it be like that in reality? Boys are so confusing. One moment they are together with the geeky girl, the next moment they are dancing at prom with a cheerleader. Why can't the girls that make sense and are beautiful in there own way be loved. Why are boys so cute, yet so hard.

Also I just want to say that girls are confusing too. I once told a girl that I had been friends with for years that I liked her and she literally threw up! I mean am I really that ugly???

@366275 Thank you for agreeing to me and if you still know those guys that you rejected then maybe go up to them and ask them out (if you aren't already in a relationship of course)

I really like this piece, But I (As a tall blonde with blue eyes) Have never been liked by guys because every guy I've ever liked went for a brunette, The guy I like at the moment is dating a Tall blonde that is a cheer coach...apparently.

Okay, okay. I LOVE THIS!! I really do appreciate some opening to this, you know? But let's get it from a boy's point of view. @Shyguy239 I completely agree with you. What if that boy likes you, but is afraid to tell you his feelings because he might get rejected. I'm a girl myself, but from my past (before I realized it), I used to reject some guys that could have been more than a friend. I understand the "Perfect, blue eyed, blonde hair" scenario, but the more we call them "perfect" focus on their insides. Like, focus on who they are as a person. They could be an absolute sweetheart, and be super kind, but you (not you, just using "you" as in general) could just assume that their toxic or disrespectful. Anyway, I completely agree with this piece of writing. I THINK THAT EVERYONE IS BEAUTIFUL!! -xoxo me.

What's wrong with brown hair? What's wrong with hazel eyes? Why do we have to change to be loved?

SO FREAKING TRUE! I am being friend-zoned (sadly). Even though I never met the guy's girlfriend, I know her name: Emma. My friend Izzy says she's probably a blue eyed blonde! I was fuming for hours at the thought of it! 🙄

Firstly I am a boy and I have never done anything this says. What happens is some boys do like you and they are probably ones who hang out with you very often and they don’t tell you because they think your cool and you might reject them(I know from experience.)

I am blonde with blue eyes and I can honestly tell you that looking like that doesn’t help. Maybe it does in movies, but we all know how far from reality those are. Also, @VirginiaHeart, don’t bother with the boys that just go out with “cute” girls. They are not worth your time. (Not speaking from personal experience here. As I said, being blonde doesn’t mean you get all the guys).

I disagree with this mainly because I have blonde hair and blue eyes, and guys don’t even talk to me let alone want to be with me.

I feel like I'm expected to like the ditsy, blonde type, but I never have. I hate how people can act so fake and so bland in this society.

That's all true, but what she's trying to say is that...the most popular, most ''stereotypical'' girls are the ones that most guys are going to want to date. Not always true, but typically.
