Why Guys Think Regular Girls Rock

High-profile girls aren't always all that. Here's why a lot of guys still prefer to be with low-key lovelies.

Yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But when we're talking about the pretty faces you see in
media, their kind of beauty will pop the eyes out of any beholder's head. Let's face it, they're beautiful for a living. They get paid to look like a million bucks, and they make all the guys' heads spin because of it. Any and every boy out there would give their right arm to date a supermodel, an actress, or a beauty queen. Or would they?

While it is fun to imagine what it would be like to have a model draped on our arms, it's not necessarily a lifestyle every guy would like to lead. Believe it or not, a surprisingly large number of boys would still choose to end up with a friend, a neighbor, or the girl next door. Regular girls still have a lot of things going for them when compared to high-profile ladies, and a lot of cases will prove that point. How, you ask? Well, let's see...


Higher Maintenance Costs Than A Car
Yes, they look as hot as a crooked politician's Expedition or Porsche. But these hot women have to be wined and dined in a very, very extravagant, high-class way as befits their goddess-among-women stature. That means money, and at this stage in our lives, money is, more often than not, a luxury we don't really have. (Kung Scott Burger lang nga hirap na kami, yung pang-model pa kaya?) In addition to that, a high-profile lady will probably worry so much about her looks that she'll spend an eternity in the powder room trying to get that "just right" look. The friend or girl-next-door probably won't be as high-maintenance as a society girl, so that's an immediate plus.

The Recognition Factor Can Be A Bit Too Much
These are models, after all, whose faces are plastered on TVs, posters, and billboards everywhere. So if you walk around with one, most, if not all, eyes will be on you and your hot date. Some guys may like the attention, but others will wilt under the intense spotlight. To keep something quiet, everything has to be low-key. Besides, can you imagine how weird it could get when your date's enlarged face is grinning at you from across the road?


Guys Want Someone They Can Be Themselves With
If a guy had the chance to take a supermodel out on a date, chances are they wouldn't bring them to a fast-food joint or an arcade. It just wouldn't be right, right? But the majority of guys want someone they can have fun with. They want someone who'll hang at their house, and in whose house they can hang in. They want someone they can play video games with. They want to be able to treat a girl to Jollibee without feeling weird about themselves. They want someone who sounds suspiciously like you.
