Internet Crushes Guy Who 'Won't Date Hot Women'
Dan Rochkind had no problem finding a date.
The 40-year-old private equity executive told the New York Post,
I could have [anyone] I wanted. I met some nice people, but realistically, I went for the hottest girl you could find.
At some point, though, courting the "hottest girl" became exhausting.
Rochkind went on to explain,
Beautiful women who get a fair amount of attention get full of themselves. Eventually, I was dreading getting dinner with them because they couldn't carry a conversation.
If you're wondering who Dan Rochkind is, don't worry: None of us knew the answer to that question before this week.
Now we do, though, and it's all because of his super hot take: "I won't date hot women anymore."
Rochkind actually does have a good reason for not dating hot women anymore: The guy's freakin' engaged!
But that's where his take gets really ridiculous.
He openly describes his wife as a "softer beauty."
[She] is a softer beauty, someone you can take home and cuddle with, and she's very elegant. And she's 5-foot-2, so she can't be a runway model, but I think she's really beautiful and is prettier than anyone I've dated.
We haven't even gotten to the craziest part, though. His fiancee, Carly, and her mom participated in the Post's article as well, and it seems they're totally fine with Rochkind's stance.
So I don't know, guys. Maybe we're the crazy ones?
Maybe he's trying to make a distinction between types of beauty without diminishing his soon-to-be wife's. I mean, he DID call her "prettier than anyone."
Or maybe he's making a point about people who go out of their way to be "hot." It wouldn't be the first time someone's made that point.
I don't know, man: I'm grasping at straws here. Plus, no devil's advocate argument can explain why he would brag about all the "swimsuit models" he used to date, or allow a newspaper to call his wife "merely beautiful."
And THAT'S the undebatable asshole move.
And you know what happens when undebatable asshole moves occur? The internet crushes the asshole.
