Every Tuesday I'm bringing you a dating or relationship-related myth, story or article and I'll weigh in on the issue then turn the table to you guys. You can reply in the comments or on your own blog - but I want to hear your stories and what you think about the subject! Make sure you check back here on Tuesdays for more about love!
Underdog: a person who is expected to lose in a contest or conflict.
The other day a friend commented on the fact that I always "go for the underdog," and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. What's wrong with the underdog, anyway? When it comes to dating, the "underdog" should be given a fair chance, because the underdog always ends up being the keeper. Because of the honest comment about my dating choices, I feel like I have to defend the lovable underdog guys of the world.
I've had plenty of crushes in my time, and none of them have been predictable. I'm the girl who notices that guy that no one else does...and no one understands what I see in him until I'm at the point where I can't stop talking about him. Call these dudes the underdogs if you'd like, but I think they are the winners. Why? They tend to be more genuine, less cocky and overall sweeter and kinder people. These are the people I'd like to have in my life. This is why underdogs will always win in the end. Besides, who wants to be with someone who thinks he's the greatest thing since sliced bread? Not this girl!
What do you think? Has an underdog changed your mind when it comes to love?
