A recent karaoke session at RedBox opened my eyes towards a certain thing. 3 guys. Totally different. Displaying different personalities and behaviors. Yielding different level of attractiveness and different number of ‘appeal points’. Mich and I did wonder if age was an issue. But we seriously doubt it.
Guy number 1. Approximately 2 years younger than us. Not really sure what’s up with him. But if I were to label him, it would be ‘anti-social’. Sorta, anyway. Yes, some of them at RedBox that day are new to him. Being shy around new people is one thing, but losing your confidence is a total different thing. It’s alright to be shy, but never lose your confidence. This guy ended up being quiet and keeping to himself in a corner, almost the entire 7 hours we were singing. And boy, did we try to coax him into joining the fun, singing together and chat with us. None of the attempts were successful. Gotta say, it made him look very unattractive and very unappealing. It’s even more obvious when there are only 6 people in the room.
Guy number 2. Also approximately 2 years younger. Not as anti-social as the first. He took a while to warm up. Gradually fitting into the group. But it took hell of a coaxing to get him to slowly open up and join us in the fun. Truth be told, we were kinda getting tired of coaxing. Luckily, a friend of Mich and I, whom guy number 2 is interested in, didn’t give up on him. Lol. Finally managing to get him relax and have a little fun, towards the last hour of the singing session. Gotta say though, with the way he acted, it does gives off a slight vibe of arrogance and smugness, whether its intentional or not. And though he is pretty decent looking, the behavior he displayed the past weekend? Kinda made his ‘appeal points’ drop quite noticeably.
Guy number 3. I guess this guy did make the other two look worse. Not physically, but as a whole package. Not exceptionally good looking. Kinda average. But he carried himself well. Being the same age as Mich and I, he’s bout 2 years older than the other 2 above. He ain’t bad at singing, though not exceptionally good. But he was a good sport for it. Picking the songs he wanna sing, singing them, and even stepping up to take the mic for the songs we requested for him. Rap parts included. And even though he ain’t good at rapping and we all had a good laugh over it, it makes him fun to hang out with. He even tried coaxing the 2 guys to join in the fun, when that very day was the first day he met them. He can be a little shy sometimes, but he never let that rob the confidence he had. Put him beside those two guys, its safe to say, he scored the most ‘appeal points’, coming across as a little shy but confident, adaptable and sociable without being cocky.
Now, its obvious that looks alone won’t get you anywhere far. It’s the whole package that counts. Good personality and behavior can make a person look so much better than someone who is physically good looking but lacking personality and good behavior. Personality and behavior is what adds to the appeal points. Let me just say, ‘appeal points’ don’t only count in that romantic sense. It’s applicable also as a person, as a friend or as a good company to chill out with. Generally, high ‘appeal points’ makes a person more likable.
There’s nothing wrong with any of the guys, of course. It’s just that Mich and I suddenly realized, what kind of people makes it fun to hangout with and what kind don’t. 😉
