On Thursday, the New York Post – the paper of record known mostly for writing to an eighth-grade reading level – posted a bit of outrage fluff.
In this article, Dan Rochkind – that rare New York private equity executive, described as having a “full head of hair and muscular body” – talks about how he is nobly giving up dating absurdly hot women, boldly declaring that he will now stick to the “merely very beautiful” instead. Why would this catch declare his new restraint from dating hot women? Because after years of dating “2o-something blonde models”, he came to the sudden realization:
…dating the prettiest young things had its drawbacks — he found them flighty, selfish and vapid. “Beautiful women who get a fair amount of attention get full of themselves,” he says.
Of course, after recovering from the realization that not only was this not The Onion but that one could buy vanity op-eds in the New York Post, the Internet responded with the level of roasting we come to expect when outlets publish absurd, self-important intellectual masturbation. However, for all the dragging that Rochkind and the other contributors are getting, this piece does have a nugget of value. Almost without meaning to, Dan Rochkind and the others have given us the secrets to dating incredibly hot women.
