Undateable, the book
May 15, 2010 5:42pm CST
There is a book called Undateable, which was written by two women telling guys what things they're doing that makes them undateable. I have not read it, but there are a few things I've heard and they are ridicules such as jeans shorts. They thing wearing jeans shorts will make a man not get a date. Would you choose not date a man because he is wearing jeans shorts? Have you heard of this book? What do you think about it?

No, I haven't read the book, but I have no problem in dating a man in jean shorts. I would never date a man with dirty nails, for instance. But jean shorts? what's wrong with these two? lol Any other rules I should know? do they even explain why jean shorts are undateable?

I've never read the book, I only know of a few rules they have included. There is a video on Youtube where the two women say that jeans are suppose to be long, and that if they wanted to wear shorts, they could wear khaki. Maybe that is the reason. Some things other than jeans shorts, are wearing cutesy sweaters, going shirtless, wearing comb overs, saying booya, wearing company shirts (or shirts with company logos), cartoon voices, and having an action figure collection.

Personally, I prefer jean shorts to khaki ones, lol. Going shirtless, I agree with them. It's just rude, even if you have a great body and you want to show it off. Cartoon voices too. If a man doesn't have a manly voice it just doesn't work for me, sorry. About the rest of the rules... they just seem silly, but you have to make lots of rules in order to make a book out of such a topic, I guess.

Any book that generalizes such a complicated process as why someone gets a date or not is highly suspicious in my mind. While I don't believe they are bashing men (insulting maybe, but I doubt they are bashing)they are definitely preying on men who for whatever reason have a harder time attracting females. A book of positive reinforcement with suggestions on how to go about finding a compatible woman would be far more efficient and effective in my opinion. But I suppose to some people it is all about the money.
