Can Someone Please Explain it to Me?

The evil receptionist at work gets asked out by nearly EVERY man who walks off the elevator. FedEx guys, the elevator repairman, salesman, auditors, interview candidates....I've seen it with my own eyes and each time it happens, I'm more and more perplexed. She's attractive, not beautiful, but "cute" ...dresses mostly in jeans and sweatshirts (designer ones that cost more than my monthly rent), and is fairly nice (at least to men) upon first meeting, so I can somewhat understand the initial flirting, but it's CRYSTAL clear once you have a conversation with this girl that's she's just another high maintenance daddy's little girl (even still lives at home) with absolutely no substance. I've seen the way she treats men and it's ridiculous...yelling at them if they don't call within 20 minutes of when they say, refusing to be taken to restaurants that are less than 4 stars, making them change clothes if they don't look good enough for her....It baffles me how someone like her can be so desirable. Any men out there that can explain the allure of a woman like this??? Why are women like her NEVER single, yet women like me (good job, very intelligent and well-read, never give a guy a hard time about anything, can make almost anyone laugh, (mostly) has their life in order, yet not as good looking) can't get a second (or first!) look from men? It's SO frustrating! Is it the arm candy factor? Men just want a girl they can show off to their friends, no matter who she is?? Please please...someone shed some insight!

This is easy. She's the RECEPTIONIST. She's easy to talk to. Her job is to be easy to talk to. She is supposed to be RECEPTIVE. It's just like how bartenders get asked out a lot. They are there to be talked to. Does that help at all?

I second that.

Ugh...I hate to fall back on this, but it's too true to ignore: The guys that are happily involved with people like that want nothing to do with anyone that actually requires them to be human. Know you are better off without them and move on.

Well here's hoping I get demoted to receptionist so I can get some action! LOL

Girl: Right you are...these men probably aren't exactly looking for conversation...where are all the quality men hiding these days??!
