Since Peter Travers, praises the new movie, "she's out of my league", i would like ask you all a question. lets say you hooked up with a guy/girl that was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYY out of your league, and was perfect allegedly in every fathomable way. lets also pretend they had an ex that was also perfect, that she/he still had partial feelings for but still cared about you as well. what would you do? take in mind, this has NOTHING to do with me, as i just know that this is part of the plot to the movie, but i wanted to know what would YOU do if it happened to you?
I just got in an arguement with hubby about this.
what does "out of your league" even mean?!! and why does no one ever say HE is out of your league?
perfect? are you kidding me? then why did they break up?
I dont care if the ex is a dog,(dont ask, where I live, people have in fact tried to marry thier dog) if he has feelings for her, then he isnt mine all the way.
"league" aside, if someone has feelings for someone else, they shouldnt be trying to start a new relationship.
If she and her ex were both truly perfect, then they would still be together because they would be perfectly matched, so the question becomes irrelevant.
However if you're talking about a 10 as in Bo Derek 10, i.e. it's all about the looks, then it's a silly question because looks are such a small part of what makes a relationship work.
to me, someone is "out of your league" if they are a complete arrogant jerk, i don't care how pretty he is.
as to the other part of the question, if i liked someone who still had feelings for someone else, i would tell them to go sort them out first before coming anywhere near me. who wants to deal with that?
if he still had partial feelings for her, he had better get them sorted out before pursuing anything with me!! cuz I wouldn't want my heart broken over his uncertainty.
Define "out of your league"
Is it people who are "prettier" than me? Thinner? More fashionable? Are part of the "In-crowd"? Richer?
Anyone who thinks they're out of my league for those reasons is so shallow I wouldn't want to be with them.
Just sayin . . .
i agree with you 100%. but I thought of the question as "for arguments sake". such as: Prince Charles is "out of my league". for more reasons than one!!
why? why is he out of your league? what IS a league? I know its about the title of the movie and its for arguments sake, but I really dont get that phrase ...and you cant have an argument by your self? normaly anyways..
why is he out of my league? Many Reasons! lol
he's in England, I'm in USA. He's royalty, I'm not. He's 60+ (?), I'm 40 something. His family history is well known, I would rather keep mine private. He has social circles, I keep to myself.
I consider him out of my league cuz I doubt he would ever be interested in me for the reasons I stated. Now if it were someone like Johnny Depp...the only issue I would have would be the social circles. I don't care if someone thinks he's out of my league - I would fight for him!!
thats not league
thats just you dont have anything in common. your good enough, hes just not the right one.
to me, saying..out of your league..implies the other person is too good for you. I think thats ridicolous. And honestly, its usally based on a woman's apperance.
having something in common puts you in the same league.
the perception out there is, that being out of someone's league means the other person is too good for you. It's meant to derail you, to demean you, degrade you. But honestly, that is not how I look at it. I decided a long time ago that Nobody has the right to determine who is or is not in my league. Except me.
I agree. its why the whole "league" thing bugs me.
people are different, its not about better or worse.
I supppose Im just being picky about vocabulary?
her looks make her a 5. but her personality probably adds atleast another 5 making the whole package in his eyes. looks are only part of the number. a woman can be a 10 in looks but have 0 personality to the point that no man can stand to be around her anyway.
A perfect example: The Revenge of the Nerds. There are a number of reason a "10" would be with a "5".
However, as for personal experience, I've dated several "10" women and my scale of ten has more to do with other factors, besides their looks. I almost married one, but then learned that she is not a "10" after all, but was nothing more than a "5" dressed to play the role of a "10".
So, with that said- if there are any sort of feelings between ex's and partners, then those should be sorted out, before anything else can begin.
Just my thoughts.

Can you really have a relationship with someone you don't trust.You can love them and want your relationship to work but if you don't trust them can it? Do you give it time and hope for the best?

Should I be mad that my mistress is sleeping with a friend of mine?I know there is no honor amongst thieves, so to speak, but should I be upset that a former friend of mine has hooked up with my mistress. I feel that I am in love with her, and have entertained leaving my wife for her....

Would you consider it "cheating"? if you are in a relationship with somebody, but you are in love with some one else?

Is it wrong to stop talking to an ex the minute you find out he has met someone new?Personally, the minute I find out that someone who once liked me ..is talking to someone else, then I just decide right then and there that I will no longer keep in contact with them. I guess it hurts to think that...
