Attractive Generalization

Tuesday, 1 October 2002

Generalization: Everyone in this world has seen or knows some­one that they find so amaz­ing­ly at­trac­tive in all ways that it hurts to be in their pres­ence. I’ve got three girls that do this. one in my mon­day an­thro class, one in my tuesday/​thursday an­thro class, and one on the cross-coun­try team. i say every­one in the world has this, al­though i tru­ly on­ly know that this par­a­digm ex­ists for me. it hurts be­cause they are too much of every­thing for me. es­pe­cial­ly too good. per­haps my self-es­teem is too low or too skewed. i think i am at­trac­tive enough, but i do not think any­one else thinks so. my per­son­al self-es­teem is fine, my so­cial self-es­teem is neg­li­gi­ble. ain’t no thang but a chick­en wing, right?
