If you really believe that every female should consider you smart,funny, and attractive, I regret to tell you that you're probably a self-absorbed dick, and that may be the problem.

Not saying that having a high self esteem or confidence is anything but a good thing, just saying that to actually believe that in a proper universe women should be saying that to you is pretty douchey.

I'm not a self-absorbed dick. I knew a girl who I was really good friends with, i had always liked her and she knew that. She had TOLD ME that she thought I was attractive and funny. Also, i have a 4.0 GPA. So it may seem like I'm arrogant, but I'm really not. I actually have very low self-esteem and depression issues, believe it or not. I go to the gym every day and always try to make myself better to impress her, but she said that we couldn't date because I was like a brother to her and she was "only attracted to assholes". I know it's my fault for being too nice to her, but that's how I act to people I care about, it just seems natural.

Yeah, you are one of those interesting types that actually are narcissists, from my point of view. Let me make a few points that even you may not have noticed:

a) You went out of your way to try and meticulously prove every point I made about you wrong.

b) You tried to point out all of the reasons you deserved to be praised, but did so in a very slipshod manner that made it seem as if you really didn't think it.

c) You use the 4.0 GPA as a reasoning to explain your intelligence, which doesn't have much to do with anything seeing as any idiot that tries hard enough can get good grades. It has little to nothing to do with intelligence so much as it does retaining and spewing out information through study.

d) If she has decided that she openly accepts only being attracted to assholes, then I suggest you stop trying.

Lastly, you try and put yourself on a pedestal in a 'modest' manner by saying you are TOO nice and it is 'your fault'. You are drawing on pity in order to inflate your ego.

I'm not trying to be mean, it is a simple observation. You are a passive-aggressive sub-conscious narcissist. Often people like you don't even know that you're doing it.

You may be right, I was just trying to point out that I'm not as self-absorbed as it may seem. It's just that in my experience, I've noticed a lot of girls are attracted to the "bad boy" types who really don't care about them as opposed to mature ones. I'm not trying to make myself seem perfect, because I know I'm not, but many of the previous comments I read said things like that I would have to either be ugly or boring.
And thank you for stating that observation in a polite manner instead of just storming in with insults and jumping to conclusions like some others.

No problem, I'm only making the suggestion because I intend to help you. The thing is, you might find that you'd be better off simply agreeing to be average, rather than pretend that there are only dumb uggoes or hot geniuses out there. Usually it is a mixed package, and you need to remember that. To be honest, your reply cemented my observation more than anything.

As I was saying, if you'd like to get her, here is what I suggest you do.

"What is with you and assholes. -inserfriendgirlhere- ? Have you ever considered the idea that maybe you are used to them, not attracted to them? Hell, have you ever even given another type of guy a chance?"

Then she will say of course she has. If she is single, then you say, "Well then, go out on a date with me. If you are so sure, then nothing will come out of it, right?"

There, I got you your one shot, up to you to make the best of it. Tell me how it goes.

Thanks, and that sounds like a good idea, except for the fact that she hasn't spoken to me in months for reasons unknown.

Alright, next time she texts you, no matter what it is NO MATTER WHAT, don't reply. Just don't. If she confronts you IRL, say you just didn't have the time for it.

She will start to get upset soon, and things will get more frequent. Wait until she starts to bargain, or apologize for blowing you off. This is hard to time because if you wait too long they give up, so the general rule is, once you hear "I'm sorry, you have always been a really great guy to me and I should have..." You want to make contact.

I'm not telling you this because I want you to be an asshole, I'm telling you this because I want you to treat this girl right if you get her.
