We just want some­one who we feel isn’t

na­man­siya, as if her very con­ven­tion­al­ity were the con­so­la­tion prize for her de­sir­abil­ity— kita mo,type siyani El­i­gi­ble Ac­tor, so she should be glad for the at­ten­tion, right? All sim­ple girls should be.

some­one who’s too de­mure to an­swer back.

never dream of ask­ing any­one from the cool-girl ta­ble out, we came to ide­al­ize the sim­ple girl, turn­ing a clas­sist put­down into a de­sir­able trait. But the sim­ple girl is re­ally a myth­i­cal crea­ture—as in, she doesn’t ex­ist, and to chase af­ter her is to be dis­hon­est with our­selves. We don’t ac­tu­ally want a sim­ple girl. Maybe we just want some­one who we feel isn’t maarte. Maybe we want some­one who doesn’t care about fancy clothes or posh restau­rants. Maybe we just want some­one who’s too de­mure to an­swer back. Or maybe we want some­one we can feel su­pe­rior to. What­ever the rea­son is, we should stop smooth­ing over a per­son’s quirks and putting her in the sim­plis­tic box called the sim­ple girl. Af­ter all— and we’re sorry to break it to you, El­i­gi­ble Ac­tor and Feel­ing-in­die Friend— there are no sim­ple girls, just women with dif­fer­ent com­plex­i­ties.

Do sim­ple girls re­ally ex­ist?
