Don’t be a Fool: What ‘I’m Not That Kind of Girl’ Actually Means

miley-cyrus-2013-vma-teddy-bear-tongue-624x349This article may get me slapped, but whatever. Starting my later high school years to this afternoon, I’ve had countless girls say to me “I’m not that kind of girl,” or “I’m a good girl.”  Of course, they always informed me of this fun fact when I was either bringing them home, had them home, or sometimes even while we were in the process of hooking up.

Comically, the responses “don’t worry, I’m not that kind of guy,” “you didn’t seem like every other girl,” or simply ignoring them will work most of the time to make them forget that they’re “not like that.” But even better, I’ve just come to learn that if a girl ever tells me that she’s a good one, there’s a 99 percent chance that we’re about to hook up…or she’s crazy. When girls mutter these few words, the truth is, they only say this to convince themselves, not me, that they’re “good.”

… So the next time you try telling someone about what kind of person you are, think about whether you are trying to convince that person of it, or yourself.
