Dating a girl with bad teeth
I apologize to RSS readers- this post prematurely went up before I was done with it. This week marks the 1 year anniversary of this blog (January 4th!), and to, uh, celebrate this milestone I will be posting a ton and gently directing readers toward the Donation Page all week as part of a twice-yearly pledge drive (in lieu of running ads).We talk a lot about “Rules of Dating” here, but let me throw some big ideas out there about attraction, fairness, and what people “deserve” in dating: 1. Everyone has something about themselves that might be a dealbreaker for someone else in becoming attracted to them. blindingly-teethed Chris Traeger-bot before you deserve to put yourself out there, meet people, and try to find love.The truth is, even if your teeth were great and your life were somehow perfect, you’d still have issues about something, and if you didn’t personally feel that you did, the culture would try to make you have them. If you’re talking yourself into feeling it for someone, that’s a sign that you are NOT actually feeling it.It feels different to be passed over by a stranger than it is to be turned down by someone you’ve been pining for after you’ve made a grand gesture. For a handful of people I will be just what they want, and they will be just what I want, and who cares about the rest?You’re giving the person in the second (overly-invested) scenario WAY too much power over your happiness and forgetting that they get to make a snap judgment. What we should also understand, in the name of complete honesty: If you scrape the surface, many dealbreakers stink of sexism, size-ism, classism, able-ism, and racism.No matter how cool I am, no matter how much fun they might have talking to me, no matter how much I might check off every single item on their dream girl checklist, it’s a nonstarter.
