Does Michelle Trachtenberg want to get with John Mayer?

John Mayer has been keeping his nose clean for the most part for several months. There was his Douche Extraordinaire visit to the Today Show, but that was pretty tame, honestly. And it’s been a really long time (in Mayer Douche Time) since we’ve heard anything solid about his dating life. Sure, there are still reports that he and Jennifer Aniston are back together, and there’s still that story that he and Taylor Swift are hitting it, but nothing solid. Now Page Six is reporting that Michelle Trachtenberg was all over his douche-jock the other night:

“Gossip Girl” star Michelle Trachtenberg cozied up to John Mayer at Soho House in Los Angeles the other night.

“Michelle was bouncy and flirty. She seemed smitten with him,” said one witness.

But the singer/guitarist “seemed too cool for school and non-expressive.” A flack for Mayer had no comment. Trachtenberg’s rep said the pair chatted for five minutes and then she resumed dinner with her family.

“They’ve known each other for years,” the rep added.

[From Page Six]

Ugh. I hope this isn’t true. The part about her being “smitten” that is. I mean… I don’t really have strong feelings about Michelle Trachtenberg either way, but she strikes me as a nice girl with some self-esteem issues, and that’s a fatal combination for a douche like Mayer. Even though it sucks that Mayer seems to think he’s “too cool” for Michelle, in the long run I prefer it this way, rather than Mayer getting his douche paws on her and f-cking with her head.

    John Mayer, feeding off girls with low self-esteem since 1995.

  2. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    LOL you posted some of the most unflattering pics of John I have seen in awhile. I don’t really care either way what or who either one dates. Michelle does seem kinda fragile and John wouldn’t really be the way to go for her. Now me on the other head would ride that until the crows cawed?!?! Whatever, I don’t know how that saying goes. It just makes me sad his penis is the way it is. I seriously can’t get over that.

  3. LindyLou says:

    I really don’t get why so many women find him attractive. He’s not smart, he’s a narccisist and of course, a huge d-bag. Ugh. Just ugh.

  4. original kate says:

    wear a hazmat suit, michelle.

  5. Jean says:

    You figure she has low self-esteem because she claimed she wasn’t fat?
    She is far from being “fat” and in an industry that so relentlessly propagates “size 0″ as the norm, I can understand how she might’ve gotten annoyed or fed up with the constant weight discussion.
    I went back to that earlier post, and she said she didn’t want her “fans”, or young people in particular, who are easily influenced, thinking that there was something wrong with them for not fitting into a size 0. I can’t find any low self-esteem in that, I’m sorry. On the contrary, she seems to feel good about herself, which is refreshing!

  6. Kaiser says:

    Jean – Honestly, from what little I’ve seen of her, she just strikes me as a girl who has esteem issues – that’s just my general feeling. I linked back to the previous story because, as CB and others pointed out, she waited to make her “I’m not fat” comments after she lost the weight!

  7. aenflex says:

    Anyone who goes after a douche, especially this particular one, should know better. And if she doesn’t, oh well. Her fault for being a moth to the douche’s flame. I understand, sometimes they can be so attractive, and if you have some fun sex but leave the feelings out, maybe a sucess. But he seems like he preys on the porcelain doll-type girls. The ones who are slightly fragile afterall.

  8. kelbear says:

    If they have known each other for years than it’s probably no big deal. Could easily be friends hanging out.

  9. jeane says:

    I agree Jean! If she had low self-esteem she would have stopped eating until she was a size 0, instead of telling everybody to suck it.
    She may have lost SOME weight, maybe 5 or 6 pounds, nothing drastic, she still looks pretty curvy.
    She’s in Gossip Girl, all the girls on that show are much skinnier than she is so the fact that she didn’t break under that kind of pressure says it all I think.

    Problem is alot of guys are like John Mayer, they are just smart enough to keep it on the low. Then he messes up by trying to prove he’s a nice guy, which just makes it worse. Trying to fake caring about someone doesn’t work. People see threw it. He is the definition of a Lothario. Be nice to them and sweet talk, then when his loneliness subsides from dealing with the chick, he gets rid of them. Some guys stay players, some actually find someone they are crazy about and settle down. He thought he could be out there in the media and not have his player behavior judged, causr he was arrogant.

    He’s been ducking out for over a year and half, in regards to dating someone, so hopefully he’s learned something. Don’t date people you don’t care about in public, especially when those people ate famewhores. Especially Aniston, leaking a lie he’s bothered with her again , PLEASE.

    Seriously Mayer is just another player like lots of guys out there. Maybe he’ll find someone he’s crazy about some day.

  11. Keyanna says:

    Maybe she just lookin’ for a good time. That is about all he is worth.
    Ain’t nothing wrong with that.

  12. TQB says:

    Please, no! She will always and forever be Buffy’s sister to me, thus her being smitten with anyone is a little gross. But this is terrible. Ack, no. Please.

  13. Lisa says:

    You say you’re supposed to be a friendly welcoming site but it seems that you’re just playing mean. I can actually say he is not a douchebag (a most overrated term)

  14. Jeri says:

    My post disappeared. I’ll try again.

    It was reported she used to go out with Pete from Fallout Boys before he married. A drunken Ashley confronted her at some event or party & said “he was f–king me the whole time he was dating you.” Michelle did not retaliate.

    Not sure how true this it. If true, it could contribute to low self esteem.

  15. LBees says:

    re Lisa,

    You can say he is not a douchebag? Wow. Amazing. I guess we all must have forgotten that in this fantasy land called the Internet, *anyone* can say *anything.*

    I can say you ate a big cheese pie with squishy squirrels on the side. See what I did there? I SAID IT.

    If you have special insider knowledge of his non-doucheyness, please share. Otherwise, get used to the fact that his public image has all the appeal of a used port-o-potty. MG.

  16. Emily says:

    LMAO @LBees. I say that post rocks!

  17. Sans says:

    Idiots use the word douchebag.

  18. bellaluna says:

    And curse words are used by the uneducated. Your point? ;)

    @ TQB – I totally agree. Every time I see her, I see Dawn; thinking of her with him just gives me the heebie-jeebies!

  19. Sans says:

    POINT is, people need to state their dislike for someone with factual information, versus name calling. People who have nothing to say, curse. Doesn’t have anything to do with education. Try some critical thinking. Maybe I wouldn’t have to spell everything out for you.
