double standard

though the serial dater stud/slut and i text every now and then, in actual fact we haven't actually met up in almost a year. recently we both found ourselves on a business trip to the same place (which is also incidentally his hometown) and decided to catch up for a drink and dinner.

as we usually do, we wound up talking bout his conquests. the girl he was currently shacking up with was the girl he met via a business networking session who lived in his hometown. and since he was there for the week, she had packed her bags and moved into his hotel.

he was laughing as he told me the story of how he managed to con her to stay with him on a holiday after only one date. a combination of giving himself a pat on the back for having it and amused at how easily she was giving it.

when asked if she had any potential to be more, he quickly answered in the negative. he stated that he just wanted a plaything for his business trip and it's easier when she's living there. it also gave the perfect excuse when it came time to move on from her. he admitted that he did think less of her and wondered if she always did the same since she hooked up with him so quickly.

he insisted that he wasn't a player and when he asked if i thought he was, i gave it to him straight. granted he's good on paper (and he himself cockily knows this) but it's just that he leads them on. he argued that it was the girls' own imaginations. but i think that if he knew right off the bat that there was never ever going to be anything more and yet leads the girls on to think that he's actually truly interested, that i consider a player. i would have had more respect if he owned up to that.

it's funny how an initially attractive guy could just grow to be so unattractive to me.

Definitely been in a similar conversation. And someone I once found so darn handsome became so darn ugly in a 10minute conversation!!! MAD!.

Agreed Gretta. Some guys would be so much cuter if they just wouldn't speak...
