The Myspace Harem

The Scene: A book shop, library, grocery store. Anywhere that I'm not trying to meet someone.

The Boy: Quiet, intellectual, seems different from the usual guys, he owns a car & has a job & everything, refreshing.

The Girl: One Sarakastic.

The Conversation: Great, we get to talking about how we hate close mindedness & how I'm a princess.

The Problem: He hands me a slip of paper, or mentions his myspace profile. I don't care how quiet this guy seems, he will have at least 300 friends, most of them 18 year old, beautiful girls. I refer to it as a myspace harem, & it seems that everything male has one. It's a little black book that everyone can see, & it's socially acceptable to just hand this out to any girl you might be interested in. I blame myspace for the reason that dating seems so difficult in this generation. How is anyone supposed to stand out in a crowd of 300 girls leaving suggestive comments? How am I supposed to be ok with the Harem, even when they continue to exist if we start dating? Maybe I'm going to have to start going after Amish guys.

Or you can go the hoochie route like a friend of mine did...her profile pic showed her wearing a VERY low-cut shirt which meant you couldn't help but notice the $5,000.00 she spent enhancing herself...she is now engaged to a guy she met on MySpace. I mocked her then...and I proudly mock her now! :)

I'm with you on the MySpace thing. I think it's like a contest to see who can have the most friends. I don't have an account, but I admit to checking up on other people from time to time. And a boy that has mostly 18 year old girl friends is a TURN-OFF!
I don't think the Amish are allowed to wear tiaras. Might want to re-think that one!

i think the way to go is starting your own myspace harem. all 20 year old abercrombie & fitch models, you know. see how confident a guy feels after he checks that out.

Oh that just totally cracks me UP! 1) because I have a MySpace and 2) because only a tiny handful of the many "friends" I have there are people I actually give a real crap about. I find it highly entertaining when people validate their social skills by a website that allows connecting with random strangers. I'm just trying to imagine myself handing out my MySpace address to someone in stead of a card or something. HAHAHAHAHA! Honestly, that is rich!

Seriously? He actually gave out his MySpace address?! How old is this guy? 14? Definately not a keeper. Whatever happened to phone #s?

Stacy said...

A MySpace harem? That's the best term ever. If I could give you a second Rockin' Girl Blogger award, I would.

Yeah... I agree with Jenkneebee!

OH HEAVENS. Any guys giving out his myspace profile instead of his number? Loser. I mean really, all those beautiful young girls? They can have him!

A college friend of mine was in the Amish Paradise video. What are your feelings on Amish impersonators?
