There’s one big, fat reason that the hot women you run into aren’t on the prowl for Boring Guy. Can you guess it? We’ll wait…that’s long enough. The truth is that your average SHB is not going to settle for Boring Guy because they’re, well, so boring. Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to make yourself less boring. Imagine how far James Bond would get with the uber-swanky women he regularly crosses with if the extent of his conversation was the past weekend’s football scores and how job stress was making him cranky.
Lesson to Boring Guy: If you want to attract swanky women, go forth and make thyself interesting. Develop a hobby – you just might like it. Weirder things have happened. Here are a few obvious choices.
Learn a foreign language.
Chicks dig a guy who can speak in more than one tongue. Seriously. Watch A Fish Called Wanda if you don’t believe it, when the cuckolding barrister played by John Cleese almost sends the bank robber played by Jamie Lee Curtis into a literal swoon simply by sliding smoothly from language to language. Why a foreign language? Because it makes you seem smart, dummy, and women like smart. For bonus points, learn Latin. For our money, nothing says sexy like a dead language.
Become passably good at a physical activity. Weight lifting doesn’t count. because there’s not much chance for quality interaction while your sweaty focus is on a steel bar. What you need is a decent physical activity that two people can have fun with in public. How about roller-blading, surfing, bicycling – the list is endless. Just make sure that you can actually do the activity without risking cardiac arrest. Nothing’s less sexier than when the woman has to call 9-1-1 for you halfway through a hike. Bonus points if you decide to take up bicycle jousting.
Are you starting to get the idea here? This is what we mean when we talk about the Renaissance Man concept. Banish Boring Guy by showing an interest in something out of the ordinary. Write a book or screenplay, become an expert on UFO’s, or an inventor. Ultimately, it comes down to this – do something different and there’s a good chance she’ll notice.
