When Settling for Second Best Is a Dumb Move

You know when people say relationships are complicated? I don’t get it.
Life is complicated enough—work, health, money, family and difficult people galore. And if you are putting yourself in a complicated relationship, you are somewhat of a sadomasochist.

Call me shallow. Call me callous. But in life, there are some things we don’t have a say in. We put up with those things. We grin and bear it.
As for certain things that you can make a choice, it’s wise to go with one that makes you happy.

So, save me your relationship woes. Don’t cry and slit your wrists. Don’t drink some cheap ineffectual household detergent. Stupidity kills but just to be on the safe side, go up the highest building you can find and jump down from there. All species should abide by the laws of natural selection.

Other than the aforementioned group of emotional blackmailers, there is another group of people called the “Inanes”. They do not have a fixed profile but most guys tend to fit into this group at some point of time in their lives.
Why are they inane?

1. They bitch about their non-existent love life and ‘The Ex Files’ to everyone they talk to and puts people to Zzzzz. Even our toes are snoozing.
2. They whine about some girl crush all the time and leave you wondering why they are wasting time talking and taking absolutely no action.
3. They screw things up by choosing the second best option because it’s available due to a case of great timing. But either, start regretting it later OR, when 2nd best is somehow gone, think they actually should target 1st choice now.

To all 3 of the above, it’s actually laughable. Especially the Number 3 dude. Boy, we all know how forms look like. You start with 1st choice then go down the list. You have to be rejected by 1st choice and work your way down. This is life. This is how the world works. You are not living on Planet B612. We don’t do things in reverse order. We don’t put the cart before the horse.

This entry is inspired by fictitious character 'George O’Malley' in Grey’s Anatomy. Why did he get involved with Olivia when he’s clearly into Meredith? If drama depicts reality, I can’t imagine real people like him. It’s just so wrong. And when 2nd choice finds out “You don’t love her enough” it is gonna hurt. Either way, you lose.

Learn? Hm...It's like trying to teach an old dog new tricks. Now, that's difficult.

Maybe when they stop thinking with their penises? Man, I sound like a man hater/ eater. =P

I can so identify with this entry. It irks me even more when a guy settles for second best, and then turns around and blames the girl for not being what he wants. I'd seen it happen to girl friends too many times.
