Overheard in LA

Table full of high-maintenance West Side bitches at La Salsa. You know the type; immaculately done up, thin, heavily made up, beautiful, carefully done hair, perpetually sour expression on their joyless faces due to spending all their time at the gym or shopping, rather than enjoying any of life's non-materialistic pleasures. One says to the other; "Dating sucks. The other night I went on a date, and the guy I'm out with asks me "What do you think of exisistentialism?" What a loser. Like I've cared about that since freshmen philosophy. Hello?"

She was right about one thing - dating her would suck.

I didn't gloss over that and specifically mentioned that if the question was not out of nowhere, then it was perfectly valid and she obviously wanted nothing to do with that line of conversation.

Something else to consider is that intellect is not usually the reason a man is called a loser...it usually is another trait that gives him that label. Sure, it's easy for a geeky guy to claim that women aren't interested in him because he's brainy, but in almost every case I can't point directly to another reason why he's without a girl and that reason has nothing to do with his intellect.

...except in this case, in which it is explicitly what it is the woman is complaining about.

Actually, she was complaining about being asked to speak about philosophy, which doesn't necessarily mean that she was complaining about his overall intellect. As I mentioned before, she might just abhor philosophy.

Given the context of her statement, it seems clear that she does in fact abhor philosophy. Not because she is some sort of philosophobe, but rather, because she is vapid.
