Even though I am not a particularly big fan of Jennifer Aniston, I am now coming to a realization that I have to like her because I am slowly turning into her. Not her, the actual person, but her, the archetype.
From what I can gather, she has a pretty good career, a modicum of talent, a lot of money in the bank, is a hard worker, an overall nice person, not that unattractive with a pretty great body, with a life that many want/covet.
And yet, she’s always single.
Could it be her choice in men, or is it her? It’s probably a combination of both.
The men she dates inevitably leave her and go shack up with another woman, leaving her in the dust. Quite often, these women don’t compare to her (fame, money, looks, etc.). Soon after, they’re either engaged or married, signifying a more permanent - and serious - relationship status.
Why do they leave her? There must be something that’s so unattractive about her that makes men run into the arms of another. Is she some sort of psycho bitch when the cameras stop rolling? Or is she the opposite; the kind of woman who is a dream which lead men to believe she’s a nightmare because she’s too perfect? Maybe a combination of both?
And that’s when I come to the conclusion that I’m turning into Jennifer Aniston. Although it appears to be like I have a lot of positives, every person I date almost immediately finds someone else after leaving me. I think the reason for this is I’m just too much for anyone to handle; no one wants to play the role of second fiddle.
Of course, this theory doesn’t count when discussing with Brad Pitt. He left her for Angelina Jolie, who is one of the sexiest, talented, powerful, richest, philanthropic, etc. entertainers in the world.
So, now I have to find comfort in the fact that no matter how many people say I’ve got it going on, I know that doesn't matter. Someone will come into my life who can handle the person that I am and likes me for me (and isn't threatened/scared off by how amazing I am).
By the way, I always thought I was more like Angie.
