Something wrong with these examples

Now, ordinarily I’d be highly supportive of evidence supporting my fundamental beliefs, but this New York Daily News piece from yesterday (þ: memeorandum), subtitled “Ready for a real relationship? Ditch the pretty boys and grab yourself a geek,” is stretching credibility just a tad, largely because of the poster children it chooses for this phenomenon:

  • Jordan Bratman, a music executive
  • David Arquette
  • Tiger Woods
  • Adam Brody (from The O.C., a show I’m proud to say I’ve never seen)

So, we have two actors (granted, one of them is a low-rent Tom Green, but still…), a media mogul, and one of the richest athletes in the world. Can anyone find another possible causal factor that might explain why attractive women might be interested in these guys?

Tiger Woods is hot and rich- there is nothing geeky about him. They should have chosen real-world geeks. I like geeks myself. My fiance is a tad geeky and a tad awkward and has always been the “nice guy.” He says that with a little patience the nice guy wins in the end. After all, he did nab a hot chick ;oP
