To the women of the world
Seriously, the number of women I've run into lately who pick men that obviously are bad choices is astounding.

Sometimes, it can be tough to tell.

But frequently, it's like shooting fish in a barrel. What are you women thinking?

One guy I met, he just never ever shut up. (Thank god for that girl it was a one-night stand.) Other times, the dude doesn't hold a job, has no money, doesn't pay any attention to her, calls 20 times a day, smokes a lot of pot, etc. Within a week or so, it's usually obvious.

Listen to your friends. Seriously. When they warn you, they are often on to something.

Amen. Well said.

And may our friends have the stoicism to say it instead of indulging us our blind chemical stupidity.

Ah, but your observation is uni-directional in this post.

Certainly many people are bad at choosing who they should be with, but, at the same time, many times people make choices that feed some need they have that we do not, thus making them bad choices, for us, but not for them. However, not having that need, we oftentimes do not detect it in others. It is the egoist fallacy, that people are like us.

Now, I'm not saying you are wrong in these assertions, what I am saying is there is no back and forth.

One guy who just never shut up...

That is not immediately a wrong match for somebody. In fact, my friends David and Sarah Julian thrive on exactly that fact...he never shuts up. Dave is very RIGHT for Sarah. So, what I require here is context to see it outside the egoist fallacy.

This girl dated this guy who never shut up....when what she needs is a guy who enjoys silent time because she's an active reader....

If it makes you feel any better about the women of the world, the majority of my female friends have made remarkably good and mature choices lately, about their significant others.

So, at least it's not a global pandemic :).

Public and private persona can be very different, however. People who see me around at places like the Mercury have an extremely different view of me in real life. They may see a side of the person that you don't. I try not to question these things until there's something blatantly douchey that the guy/girl does.

That is because we never dated Sloane.

Certainly I am guilty of this.
I have absolute shit taste in men.
I know that I should listen to my friends when they tell me I am making a mistake, but I never do. I know this.
None of my past boyfriends have the issues you listed though....
Mine always have stable jobs and money. Mine shut up when required, and don't have any drug problems.
Mine are just messed up in the head in several other ways.

I must argue though, that men have just as much bad taste as women. Any of the men that have ever dated me must know this. I am a horrible girlfriend. So I suppose I get what I give....
