Most girls these days want to capture boys’ attention, which is a completely normal thing. Some wear make-up, try to wear cute clothes, show off in front of them, etc. But more and more I find this one silly and ridiculous reoccurring trend that girls are picking up on.
They act dumb on purpose because they think it’s cute.
I have no idea why girls think that acting dumb is perceived as cute. I think it’s quite the opposite. When someone is acting dumb, I think that they are, to put it simply, dumb. I don’t really want to hang around someone who doesn’t know who won the Civil War in a 11th grade American History class, or someone who struggles over a simple math equation, such as 24 x 2. If you loudly proclaim that you struggle with these things, and then giggle like you’re so adorable, I don’t think you’re cute; I think you need help.
When girls do or say something idiotic, it oftentimes makes people laugh. I suppose this makes them feel like they’re funny, and who doesn’t want to be a humorous person? But you’re making them laugh for completely different reasons than you intend. They’re making fun of you, and laughing at your stupidity. That really doesn’t raise your self-esteem any does it?
Some girls try and act dumb to catch a boy’s attention, as I stated earlier, but if you want to be in a healthy relationship, you want to be completely open and honest with each other. In other words, you want to like each other for who you are. A boy isn’t going to like you just because you can’t do simple problems. If anything, it’s a turn off. Who wants to show off a dumb girlfriend?
Lastly, girls who act dumb are annoying. No, I am not impressed that you did not know that Barack Obama was a democrat. Or that you didn’t know there were 52 weeks in a year. You’re not being cute, you’re hindering me from a quality education (heh, even though I go to a public school…) and are just itching to give me another reason to start carrying duct tape on me at all times.
So cut the crap. Act like you, because you want people to like you for you, not some person trying to act stupid. Be original, and don’t be ashamed to be you.
