Two things I can’t stand when I’m in a social setting is when people point out I’m single in an attempt to set me up with someone on the spot, or when people joke about me dating someone who i’m not. The first one is annoying because it advertises something that I would rather divulge on a need to know basis, makes me look desperate, and often I’m not into the other person. The second one is annoying because it could potentially cause rumors to spread that could drive away anyone who could be my type. Also, both of these things draw attention away from the more important things about me and brings my dating life to the spotlight.
Had another interview today. Hoping I get into this company.

Another discussion I had today was the concept of shallowness. I think that everyone is entitled to be “shallow” and they should not be put to shame for having certain physical requirements that a potential partner should fulfill.
I rather use the term “requirements” instead of “standards” because they differ from person to person and the hierarchy is not clearcut. As a straight male, I have considered certain women to be exceptionally attractive who my other (straight) guy friends have considered to be average and vice versa.
I remember when someone I knew ripped on a (white) girl on a blog for rejecting a (brown) guy because of his skin color. I admit, I thought that blog entry was funny at the time. But choosing to reject someone based on their skin color is no different from choosing to reject someone based on their height, body type, facial features, or other physical traits many of us look at before deciding if we find that person attractive.
Also, in principle, criticizing an individual for having specific physical requirements for their potential partners is no different from homophobia, which most of us agree is bad. A gay guy shouldn’t be put to shame because he may require his potential partner to have physical features such as a dick, facial hair, and a certain body type. Likewise, I shouldn’t be put to shame because I require that the women I end up dating have a certain body type and facial features, nor should my friends with different tastes be put to shame either. Neither should women be put to shame either for their physical requirements, including those who reject me, and even those who reject others based on sensitive things like skin color.
