Blake’s Advice Column
I’m 25 years old and really attractive. On a scale of 1 to 10, most men will consider me a 10. To be honest, I have often used my beauty to get whatever I want from any guy that’s interested in me. And I also demand that they regularly shower me with lavish gifts or I threaten to end the relationship. But here’s the problem, men that have done everything conceivable to get my attention, usually dump me within a month after we start dating. I’m not sure what to do. Do you have any advice for me?

It will be my pleasure to give you some advice. One of the possible reasons why men dump you so quickly, may be a financial decision. . Dimwitted “high maintenance” women like yourself can easily cost a man a fortune. On the other hand, even if he could afford you, I have no idea what it would be like to simply have a normal conversation with you. So without any hard data I can’t be objective, even though I’m leaning toward you are more than likely pretty stupid. It is also very likely that while in school, a lot of your teachers gave you passing grades based on your physical appeal, rather than try to encourage you to think rationally to combat the obvious continuing misfiring in your brain. However, if you were blessed with beauty, I don’t blame you for using it to your advantage now. Time is the great equalizer. And going to one of my high school reunions proved it, because most of the extremely gorgeous women that I graduated with back then, if I walked passed them today, I could easily mistake them for a bag lady. So, like great chess players, continue as you are working from a position of strength (before gravity has its way with your body). I hope this helps.
