Midweek Hustle: The Trifecta Of Dating

Happy Humpday Purgators!

Before The Brunette went on her date with Mr. Foot Fetish, she had some thoughts on her mind and posed an interesting question on Twitter.

The reason why she asked this question was because Mr. Foot Fetish checked two of the three “boxes.” He had a good job (lawyer) and what she thought was a good personality (boy was she wrong), however he was lacking in the looks department. The Brunette was curious to know if other people felt the same way she did, do you require the person you’re dating to have all three qualities, looks, personality and career or are there two in particular that you need in order to make a successful relationship?

Overwhelmingly, of all the people that responded looks and personality were top of the list. Now, some of you may be saying “duh” while others are questioning the popular response. We understand the answer to this question varies from person to person, so we wanted to put ourselves out there and explain what our thoughts are on the matter at hand.

The Brunette: Personally, I am totally content with just two of the three options, those being personality and looks. Personality is the most important factor for me since looks fade and a career can be fickle. It’s important for the person I’m with to have a good personality because I need someone who will make me laugh and allow me to feel like I’m in good company whenever I’m with them. Even though looks can be totally subjective, I think it’s important to have the physical chemistry with someone. After going out with Mr. Foot Fetish my original stance was confirmed, having a “good” career does not guarantee a fat wallet and someone with a modest career could have good finances.

The Blonde: I have never given much thought to this trifecta of looks, personality and career, especially the notion of having to pick two of the three. I’ve always felt it was important to find someone who had all three of these qualities – which is probably why I’m still single. Sometimes I wonder if this is even attainable but at this point I’m in no rush and will continue to live in my own little world thinking that my Mr. Trifecta is out there.

We’d love to hear from you, what are your thoughts on the trifecta of dating. Let us know in the comments section below or tweet us @FirstDatePurg.

    I must be on the same page as The Blonde, which is why I find myself 31 and single. I do think I have a very good career that I’ve built for myself, but still refuse to willingly be the “breadwinner” of the household which causes me to automatically eliminate many reasonable guys! -Claire

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels this way. I truly believe there are guys that check all three of these boxes – I mean, I do so why should I settle for anything less from someone else 😉 LOL – The Blonde
