Hollywood has told women to date nerds for decades. It’s bad advice.

I think Ms. Brown is frustrated she hasn't found a non-jerk Alpha male so she is bashing nerds worried she might have to "settle" for one. Austen seems to be for dating Regency era nerds: Darcy, Edward Ferrars, Colonel Brandon, Edmund Bertram, George Knightley, and Henry Tilney.

Very little of the advice that comes out of Hollywood is good advice.

If you saw her picture you’d likely conclude she couldn’t get a nerd if she stepped on one.

I think the article is reflective of the idea that women are getting tired of having to take charge and want real men.

A man may get to the end of his life never having to change a tire on a cold, snowy night. He won’t get to the end of his life as a man however.

Women will NEVER be tired of being in charge.

What they are tired of — is not having enough men around who can do the heavy lifting for them.

There are non-jerk alpha males out there. I have a cousin-in-law who’s one. He jokes that he’s an alpha male everywhere but his own house.

“Dating the nerd” is not just because they are smart and will be gainfully employed, but also because they are more likely to not be used to having their gifts appreciated.

It’s sort of the guy version of “If you want to be happy for the rest of your life,[ . . . ]find an ugly girl to marry you.”

The only non-jerk Alpha male I can think of right now is Ted Cruz.

CRUZ or lose in 2016!

Pretty on the outside — completely rotten on the inside.

We can only hope that women are starting to realize the lies with which Hollywood has bombarded them. It is especially harmful to the sons of the American women who have bought into the whole twisted and biased agenda of Liberals. They have effectively biased the minds of the younger generation . . it is an all-out war on our Alpha Males. The feminization of American men is hard for me to take since I am married to ‘John Wayne’ . . and our Son is following in his Dad’s masculine footsteps that could only be those of a rugged Alpha Male. I worry about what the future holds for our Son . . he seems to be a dying breed.
