Most Helpful Guy
Well it's kind of something I've been observing in my own life as with a lot of other people's comments. We tend to segregate the people we find unattractive from the people we find appealing in how we consider ourselves on the romantic spectrum of society. A person might say "all the guys I've ever been with treat me like crap" or "no girl is ever interested in me" type of thing. In reality other people may look at the situation and think "good lord, that person has great luck with romance", but because there is a large percentage of people that person finds unattractive they just don't even register on the radar therefore their opinions are not taken into consideration. In other words: if you're only dating guys who you find appealing on first site, and every single one turns out to be a jackass there may be a clue in there somewhere. That guy at the pub who was making eyes at you, but you didn't like the way he dressed so you pretended not to notice. Your coworker who's clearly interested in you, but a little heavyset so you're not exactly feeling the same way. Not to suggest an obligation to going out with people you're not attracted to, but if you're really having such a hard time of it try going for some of the non-conventionals.
...I mean: well sure, because girls always go for the bad guys. No one cares about nice guys...1
