As an oddball, I lived my entire early life hating myself for being different. While other girls were playing with Barbie, I was pretending to be Xena. While other kids were talking about Brittany Spears, I was rocking out to Orgy. For the longest time, I honestly believed that my social life and dating life would always be bereft of people. It took me a while to realize it, but being a quirky, crazy person has actually helped my love life immensely. Guys do, in fact, love girls who are different. Here’s some of the most common reasons why a guy will pick the odd girl out.
1. WE’RE MORE REAL.
When you’re looking at girls who are cookie-cutter representations of society’s expectations, it’s often hard to tell whether or not they’re that way because they want to fit in, or because they actually are that way. With girls that are a bit offbeat, you can usually tell that they aren’t faking it. We’re that way because that’s who we are, and that’s refreshing!
2. WE’RE EXCITING.
Strange means that we’re unpredictable. We don’t think the same way others do, so we’ll keep you guessing for quite some time.

4. GUYS LOVE GIRLS WHO STAND OUT.
It’s true. Standing out from the herd is usually what keeps guys around, or at the very least, keeps them curious.
5. GIRLS WHO DARE TO BE DIFFERENT ALSO ARE NATURALLY EDGY.
It takes guts to be weird, wacky, and unique. Being gutsy, bold, and daring is what being edgy is all about. Even if you’re the quietest nerd out there, actually being able to be you makes a huge statement that many are often too scared to make on their own.
6. ACTUALLY, GUYS FIND A LOT OF OUR STRANGENESS TO BE KINDA CUTE.
We tend to have habits that guys find especially cute. Whether it’s playing ukeleles, sneezing like a bunny, or just having a massive toe sock collection, trust me when I say that guys find quirks oddly irresistable.
7. QUIRKY GIRLS TEND TO BE UNUSUALLY PASSIONATE.
Passion is the name of the game. We live life by our own rules, and often will bring that same zeal for living into every aspect of a relationship. If a guy finds himself in the company of a quirky girl, he’s likely going to find one of the most passionate lovers out there.
8. OFFBEAT GIRLS AREN’T GOING TO BE THE ONES WHO TAKE THEMSELVES TOO SERIOUSLY.
f there’s one buzzkill that guys can’t stand, it’s an image-obsessed girl. They like to see a girl who can laugh at her own clumsiness. They adore girls who don’t freak out over their boyfriends wearing the wrong shoes at the club. It’s a huge breath of fresh air in a world that’s often way too focused on appearances.
9. WE ALSO DON’T “PLAY DUMB.”
I personally have heard of many men who view the “playing dumb” game many mainstream girls do as a major turn-off. I have yet to see someone who’s offbeat and quirky play this game. We just don’t have the time for it!
10. QUIRKY GIRLS CAN INTRODUCE YOU TO NEW EXPERIENCES, HOBBIES, AND FOODS YOU’VE NEVER EVEN HEARD OF BEFORE.
Aren’t you tired of dealing with mainstream stuff? Hanging out with the oddball girl might just turn you onto trip hop, poetry slams, or flyboarding. Guys who want adventure and new experiences will always gravitate to the girl that actively lives outside the box.
11. MEN ADORE QUIRKY GIRLS BECAUSE PERFECT IS ALWAYS BORING.
Perfect is predictable. Perfect may always be acceptable, but it’s never going to offer the unique flavor of someone who truly is alive. Quirky girls revel in the human experience, and sadly, that’s something that Barbie will never be able to do.
