Against my better judgment, I'll relay something I'm dealing with right now.

I've mentioned before that I'm coaching my buddy's kids in basketball. He also coaches soccer. And though this is our second year at hoops. But his soccer kids love him, and several requested us as coaches.

As I've come to find, this was as much due to the parents as it was the kids. Two in particular have gotten extremely close with his wife. These three hang out all the time. The two couples, and the third single. It's a horrible story that I haven't fully gotten to the bottom of in part because I don't want to know, but her husband died about 5 years ago.

She's an incredibly sweet girl. Smart. Clever. They were drinking one night and started texting me to bust my chops. Not uncommon, but first with this group. Since she's initiated a number of playfull texts. She's a smart girl. Her and I have a common "cleverness", I'll say, that causes me to engage more than I'd like. Thing is, she's just not that attractive. She's a bigger girl. And while I feel bad about it, nothing is going to happen.
But I just can't avoid her. The coaching, my buddy's wife. I'm always invited to everything. Now she's coming to other stuff through the kid. My buddy's wife has put out feelers, and it's very hard to say that I'm just not attracted to her. And at the same time if she engages with me I can't seem to keep myself from responding. I say I'm just not being an asshole, but I also worry I'm giving her the wrong idea. I've hoped my delicately letting my buddy's wife know will make things clear. But I think she has a fantasy of all of us going out for dinners, something she wouldn't do with most of the company I keep.

You don't know much about life other than propping Kobe blindly. You think a girl looking at you while you are giving a speech in your community college class is thread worthy.

Maybe you need to get deported back to your parent's country so you have less exposure to Kobe, and maybe you can start progressing in life.

Happened to me once and I ended it the worst way possible by f*cking her

She wasn't chubby but she was full of tats and I am not attracted to girls with tats.

Definitely a combination of inner and outer. There are girls that aren't great..like girls I wouldn't hit on at the club...that i become attracted to because I spend time with them. I do sometimes fantasize about fat girls that I have a great connection with (well fantasize about them losing weight and then me dating them haha).

Unfortunately, for me I've pulled a 9 (looks to me) with about a 4.5 in pure non physical chemistry. We completely love each other but definitely I know she's not my true "soul mate" when it comes to the type of personality I look for in a girl.

Don't get me wrong...this girl has a great personality, loving, strong, caring, loyal etc. It's just that I let the "one" get away so I always know how high the bar is when it comes to that personal connection.

They fall in love due to lust and physical attraction. Having sex with someone is as close a person can get with another. That is how love happens.

I fell in love once in my life and I don't think I can fall in love again. In my opinion it happens once. Even thoug I believe it to happen once but if there is a second time, it will be different but will be better.

I consider the next serious girlfriend I have to be the luckiest person in the world because I have learned from the past of my wrong doings, therefore, the next one will get a better version of me.
you make me sick

You're not "in love" with a person that looks 10/10, but you also get annoyed being around. Need a perfect balance of good looks and personality. Everyone has a different style, date around for a while until you find someone that you click with on both levels.

Yes and no. Put it this way, Id much rather have a 8/10 with a great personality than a 10/10 asshole who thinks she deserves everything. And I like conversation, I used to date a 10 once but the dates were HORRIBLE except in the bedroom. We couldn;t keep up conversation and the only time she seems remotely interested is when she was talking about new clothes and shit. Theyre nice to keep around but not good marriage material. Put it this way, unless you are thinking of divorce every 15 years, there is no point in dating a hot chick. Looks go away, intelligence dont
