    In the summer my sister had her hen night at one of those trendy but cheesy night clubs. There was a cabaret and meal and then some of us went down to the night club for a wander. A bunch of professional football players from a local team were in and some came over to join our table.

    Well you are quite clearly an idiot. Have you noticed that you are defining what you think is pretty, obviously that is irrelevant to him, he has decided she's pretty. Maybe he has decided that his ex wife with trendy clothes and a tan isn't what he really likes, she is his ex after all. Maybe, shock horror, he could possibly be attracted to her personality? You're are clearly just jealous of her.

    My older cousin was there she is 34 but admittedy does look a lot younger as she doesn't ever drink and does tons of yoga. Anyway she started chatting to the manager he is mid 30's and divorced. Pretty quickly the rest of the guys move on to other girls but the manager and my older cousin chat non stop for about 2 hours. Now my cousin is pretty and is very bright and funny but she isn't very glamerous or exciting. She doesn't wear much make up and keeps pretty covered up. Anyway this totally loaded young football manager who could have had any girl in the club was all over her and they have been seeing each other since then and it's getting pretty serious. I am happy for her but I just don't see why someone like him would choose to be with someone like my cousin. His last wife was really beautiful, blong hair, trendy clothes, tan and great make up andmy cousin is quite geeky and an artist whos hoby is astronomy and she has never worn high heels or had a tan in her life.

    She is a hardcore socialist and doesn't have anytime for all that kind of stuff and yet there she is dating a footballer / manager.

    What gives and what could he possibly see in her, how come she is able to get such a top class guy when other much prettier women are overlooked?
    Your cousin sounds pretty cool to be honest, It's more likely that a geeky guy would go for her, but I guess this guy wanted a change of pace from the superficial type.

    What I don't get is what is so impressive about football managers? I love how superficial this society is, you know all the football "stars" and all the movie "stars" but you couldn't tell me who invented the polio vaccine. He saved millions of people and nobody gives a damn.

    He is an ex footballer and pretty famous in scotland he has only just transitioned into being a manager, he did play in England for a bit though.

    I don't see my cousin that much but my sister sees her and apparently he got together with his ex really young and that it was a mistake he tried to make work for too long, sad as they have 3 kids.

    Well your cousin sounds awesome, if you have a younger version of her (more near my age, say 20's) be sure to send her my way. I'll be waiting with baited breath.

    I want the cousin after she realises the manager guys a loser ;-)
    OP anyway....Im glad you posted this...should show that not all guys want the same thing.
    But what makes him a top class bloke...apart from his job?

    Perception is such a weird thing. With espepcially one of my ex's I'd had atleast a few people (girls and guys) say 'what are you doing with her-you could do way better'. Where as others would say similiar things to her.

    this probably makes her interesting - and therefore easy to talk to

    ive never had a fake tan - whats that got to do with anything??
    why does it matter if she's worn high heels?

    if a fella thinks she's pretty he'll approach her
    if she's nice, easy to talk to, and reasonably interesting he'll stay
    it's that simple

    What a ridiculous comment, OP. A 34 year old woman doesn't need to slap up in fake tan, makeup and bleach to make her attractive. It's people like you who I can't stand.

    There doesn't sound like there's anything wrong with her at all.

    Because she sounds like an interesting person? Most men worth a damn would take her over a good looking but atrociously boring woman any day - I'm quite happy for it to continue that way
