It occurs to me that Samantha Bonar’s difficulties with “Blake the Flake” have as much to do with her choices as his personality -- or lack thereof (“Men’s Brains: Unplugged?” May 15). She describes him as “kind of dimwitted but really cute” -- the “really cute” part apparently being the operative reason she decided to give him another chance despite his cavalier treatment of her.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been single and I doubt I ever set any records on anybody’s “cute” meter. But I’m not the least bit “dimwitted,” nor have I ever treated any woman the way Bonar was treated. One woman told me a guy she was going out with “had the body of an 18-year-old.” With an 18-year-old body generally comes an 18-year-old mind. She found this out for herself a little bit later.
