Sex & the Single Woman: Boyle’s Theory of Relativity

My roommate has a theory.

She has spent extensive time observing couples and relationships and has decided that there are three categories of people.

The first group are who she deems to be “beautiful.” These are the ones we lust after but never have, who we watch from afar.

The second group are people who are unique and, therefore, an elite group in themselves. They are independent and defy the norm.

According to my roommate, each of these groups dates exclusively within themselves. They are always coupled up because they stick together.

The third group is those of us in between. She calls them “completely normal,” but really I think they are too diverse to fit into just one group. As the theory goes, the people in this third group never date, because they are always seeking out people in the first two groups and fail to look around and see what is right in front of them.

I don’t know how I feel about this theory, but it certainly raises some questions. Who knows, maybe someday she will publish it.

Let us know what you think.
