What Makes a Guy 'Undateable'? Oh, Any of 311 Different Things
Lemondrop ^ | Mar 17th 2010 | Lemondrop Staff

Posted on 03/22/2010 6:26:09 AM PDT by Malone LaVeigh

Just what is it that makes us decide there will be no date two? Or, more importantly, date three, with a particular guy? Turns out Ellen Rakieten, a former producer for Oprah, and Anne Coyle, a copywriter -- along with help from dozens of unsuspecting men -- may have the answers. All 311 of them.

Guys Who Can't Grow a Mustache: Just give it up. It's the rare man who can pull off facial hair to begin with, and being in the running means you have to be able to grow it in the first place. Besides, that patchy little thing above your upper lip looks like a Chia Pet that didn't take. Just not hot.

Any woman who can come up with 311 different things that makes a guy undateable is going to spend a lot of time at home or with other women.

First ‘The Rules,’ now this. Do these women really want to start a war? I can bat out 622 items about women if they really want it. Let’s start with black nail polish....

Just more men-bashing.

Of course, I probably account for my share of those 311 and someone else's too.

‘Any woman who can come up with 311 different things that makes a guy undateable is going to spend a lot of time at home or with other women.’

That’s the entire feminist agenda....brainwash women into believing they do need men for anything.

There’s probably just one all encompassing reason...

they don’t act like women.

But then, women are wired to want a man who acts like a man, even though society/feminism tells them different.

Has the rate of psychosis among women gone UP or DOWN since the advent of feminism?

I might suggest that anyone making up such a list should have stopped well before reason 311 and looked in the mirror, so to speak.

At least for me marriage made me undateable because the Mrs. kept running the girls off. Just kidding, dear...really.

She must be a barrel of laughs on a date. I’ve been married for 20 years but I only rejected women as potential dates for one of three reasons (as opposed to 311): left-wing politics, poor personal hygiene, or a humorless, hypercritical nature. I’m guessing these two broads hit the Trifecta.

The first order issue with “undateable” men is that most were raised by women.

These women kill me. In NYC the ratio of men to women is dramatically in favor of the men. When you don’t count the gay guys, the ratio is even better.

The good guys get scooped up quickly.

Have fun with the rest.

Its funny to listen to these thirty something divorcees and “career” girls bitch about not getting good men. They have been taught that they don’t have to compromise.

Men have known this since Eve bit into the apple. And then she put on clothes. We’ve been trying to reverse that screw up for eons.

I would have pegged it as an article in seventeen magazine, aimed at 12 year olds.

Absolutely pathetic.

My list of things that make a guy undateable

1) Hates his mother and/or father (without a d@mn good reason)
2) Bad hygiene or dirty, slovenly appearance (being a little dorky or unfashionable isn’t necessarily bad, unless it’s a more of a antisocial/mental illness vibe)
3) No job, no ambition
4) Bad or weak character, a follower
5) Isn’t ‘good’ or passionate about anything...(career success isn’t the only measure of a man)
6) Selfish adolescent persona, doesn’t see himself as ‘man’ but a ‘guy or ‘boy’
7) Lack of a transcendent moral code that includes the willingness to sacrifice
8) No sense of humor
9) No sense of self-worth
10) Dumb, heartless, greedy, and/or looking for a servant

Personal Preferences
11) Knows how to kill things when they need killing
12) Draws, writes or plays music, too

Did you include any woman with more than 2 cats on your 622 items?

Heh, my husband has 1-10 covered, although I think he could work on #8 a little more.

He’s got #12, but needs more practice at #11 as of late. Of course, opportunities have been lacking. Pretty good, so I think I’ll keep him. :)

Plus, he puts up with me! (Maybe that means his #8 is better than I’m giving him credit for.)

Seriously, if you dated this Lemondrop character and her list of flaws, you might expand your own list.

Imagine her sitting at the dinner table muttering "#105...#277... and #63... TWICE!".

For some time there have been certain rumours about Oprah. If true, it’s very possible that her staff shares her preferences.

That might explain this article.
