I meant, are you a 5 hitting on an 8.5? Or are you an 8 hitting on an 8.5?

She didn't necessarily reject you because you overreached. She might just not be interested in dating right now, not interested in dating fellow students, etc. You couldn't have predicted those factors before going for it, but you probably could've predicted the rejection in the situation where you were aiming way out of your league.


Rayiner, I don't get to say this much to you, but the fundamental premise of your analysis here is flawed: You are neglecting the possibility that overreaching itself can often (within a certain boundary range) provide the requisite qualification. Sure, typically a 5 hitting on an 8 will be shot down, yes, but there exist a not insignificant amount of instances wherein the boldness required for a 5 to hit on an 8 will convey to that 8 that the 5-male possesses some quality enabling him to be in her league (usually the female will assume that this is some kind of intangible, such as money, coolness, intellect, etc.).

It it precisely because most people view overreaching as a suicide mission that it is so often successful (at least for men--women have a much harder time overreaching because men are inherently far more superficial and care less about intangibles). Women are apt to assume that overreaching is just not done, and therefore the guy is in their league. By the time they figure out the truth, it's often too late and an emotional attachment has formed.

Haha. You make a good point. I'm just saying, that given the fact that "typically a 5 hitting on an 8 will be shot down", if OP was in that situation he probably shouldn't be too upset when the predictable result came to pass.

Also the very fact that getting shot down by a hot girl is so uncommon means either

A) You always get hot ass without a problem. But this isn't plausable because you'd be a god amongst men, and you'd probably be with a hot girl instead of posting on TLS.

B) You are beta and don't ask out many women.

You should be getting rejected all the time, or you aren't trying hard enough.

This. I don't know what number I get, but what I fall for generally (nerdiness/intellectual fireworks, vulnerability [cockiness = gigantic turnoff], and some "feeling" qualities) is not readily physically apparent. If someone has all that, his attractiveness number is just not going to matter.

Are you saying I'm dumb, or just atypical of girls in general? Do you think this is a reasonable approach to boy evaluation?
