Dude I had a hour long talk with my best friend in New Orleans this weekend walking around Burbon talking about this EXACT thing.
The girl I was dating was crazy beautiful, she was fun, smart, hot, great in bed, and utterly insane. But as a smart guy who won't admit to himself "I like the drama" because thats retarded, I have come to the conclusion of I LIKE A CHALLENGE.
One of my BEST chick friends is beautifull, doing a post-baccalaureate Bio Medical Science Degree at my school (pre-med), shes smart, fun, easy going, cool as hell, ALL my friends like her..but I have 0 attraction to her...like hanging out with here is awesome but its like hanging out with one of my guys...but why?
He told me "Dude, how many awesome/cool/self sufficent/hot chicks do you have in your life? A lot right? so why aren't you dating THEM and instead only dating the crazies? Is it the fights and adrenanline rush that makes you feel alive and keeps you there? Are you in it for the Challenge?"
As soon as I heard that it all clicked in my head...I'm a really mental kid and I CRAVE a good witty battle, something I can conquor...I just like the challenge about her...she is young and insane and maybe in a few years she will be really cool and I'll have 0 interest in her then..
Being 23 I just like a challenge..but unfortunately with work and night school I don't really have time to date LOL
