I was quite sure that if I ever approached them romantically, the best I could hope for was a look of pity and letting me down gently.When we say “out of someone’s league,” often we’re talking simply about attractiveness, but sometimes it’s a combination of attractiveness, wealth, social status, and other skills or assets.My best friend is attracted to people who are good at practical, hands-on skills like carpentry or auto maintenance.The person who leaves me awestruck and weak in the knees usually just gets a “they’re cool, I guess” reaction from her.If you’re unfamiliar with the term, ‘out of my league’, it is a phrase used to refer to a person we think is superior to us (for example: hotter) and thus, ‘out of reach’, romantically speaking.In popular culture, people often give themselves and others a number rating between 1 and 10, that reflects their ‘hotness’ quotient or attractiveness.Coming back to the movie, here is a good representation of what a numerical rating looks like: Now this ‘superiority’ is not restricted to looks alone – it actually deals with an individual’s personality as a whole.Someone who looks great and has the confidence to match would certainly ‘rate’ higher than someone who is naturally blessed but is a wallflower.
Christina is very attractive girl with a lot of experience in the dating world. If you find yourself attracted to a woman, and she glances at you, chances are she is attracted to you too and wants you to approach her.
The idea is that one person is distinctly and recognizably “above” another person in these ways, so of course they wouldn’t date them.
As I’ve gotten older and had more dating experience, I’ve begun to think more critically about this notion of “leagues.” I’ve noticed that the assumptions I make, when I think of people in those terms, don’t hold up in the real world.
If you have seen it, then yes, we’re going to be talking about the same subject!
If you haven’t, well it’s about a guy, this average Joe, who is in love with a gorgeous girl.
You have a 50/50 shot of getting the girl’s number. I’m open to giving a guy my number just because he had the balls to approach me and ask for it.
