As much as I try not to, I can't help but listen in to other people's conversations when they are sitting literally right behind me on the city bus and speaking to one another in a loud tone. Yesterday, on my way to school, I overheard an interesting conversation that two girls were having right behind me. This is how the conversation went:
Girl A-"I'm so happy to be with my new boyfriend."
Girl B-"That's great, I'm so happy for you. How do you know this one is different?"
Girl A-"Well, he says hi to my parents and my ex never did, and he doesn't even deal drugs anymore".
Girl B-"He sounds great".
I feel that this conversation is representative of either two possibilities: 1) Some women don't feel that they are worthy enough to strive for the best guy so they settle for someone subpar, or 2) our standards have just dropped altogether and our new definition of a "great guy" only consists of someone who is capable of saying hi to the family and doesn't deal drugs.
What do you think?
