"Sorry, you're just not my type."
That phrase ranks among the most demoralizing phrases anyone, boy or girl, could hear. It's often seen in dating, but it could also be heard in the workforce or even in sports. You're not the type we're looking for. You're not the type I could see myself with. You don't have the type of look.
ENOUGH with the whole "types" thing. Honestly, in some cases, having a type is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard of.
Lets start with relationships. I've noticed that lately, there have been girls who will complain about being single or not finding "the one." Want to know why that's the case? They limit themselves only to look for their type of person they want to date. Add that with the fact that, 9 times out of 10 you aren't going to find "the one' when you're in high school, chances are you're most likely going to keep rockin' the single status for a bit longer if you don't ease up on you're demands. Sorry, not sorry. This certainly isn't the case for ALL girls, but for the ones who ARE like the description I gave, you people just need to lighten up with the demands.
By the way, some boys have crazy demands, too. On to the next point.
Then there is the workforce. This is more about the employer rather than the employee. I feel that sometimes, bosses are way too stingy when it comes to who they want. I'm sure it's for a good reason, because after all they do have a business to run and keep a good name for. But still, just like girls (and boys) have them in dating, certain bosses have a borderline ridiculous kind of type.
You see where I'm getting with this?
And then there's sports. Perfect example: Tim Tebow. The dude is built lie a TANK. People always say he isn't the typical type of quarterback. But hell, he's had some pretty damn good moments, hasn't he? Exactly.
The point being is that types aren't everything. If people would stop having a serious case of tunnel vision and realize that, there would be more happy people in the world.
