I found a very nice article on tech frustrations 🙂 it does address a very pressing issue!
From the article:
February 12, 2004
I’m a nice 18-year-old tech geek who just wants to be loved.
Note: This past week, we appeared on a late-night, San Francisco-based show on TechTV called “Unscrewed.” Apparently TechTV’s viewers are all male, 18 to 19 years old, and not particularly lucky with the ladies (teen tech geeks not getting laid? shocker!). As a result, we were inundated with terribly sweet, polite, but slightly desperate letters. These dear sweet boys actually think we can help improve their high school/early college experience. So we’re going to do our damndest to try. We decided to publish two of the letters to give you a feel of our mailbag this week (that sounded dirty). If you’re still 18 and spending too much time with your right hand, know that you’re not alone. And if you’re no longer 18 and are still complaining about your love life, just remember how bad it used to be, back when you didn’t even have a lock on your bedroom door…
Here is one more on flirting 🙂
Dear Em & Lo,
I am that guy who has great women friends but never more than that. But of late I’ve gotten tired of hearing the “you are such a great guy” stuff. My fear of being in any way predacious has kept me from pushing flirtation further. But I am far more physically oriented and passionate than I’ve allowed myself to act. I’m trying to loosen up and that’s the problem. Do you have any suggestions about how to feel less like a predator in potential dating situations?
