I'm kind of surprised no guys wrote in to be a part of this, considering I've known several guys who have this problem (some don't want to admit it), myself included. I considered writing in but I thought more fellas who deserved a better spot than me (though Weston did fine), as I've gotten a LOT better about meeting girls than I was a few years ago. I still have yet to find true love or even a girlfriend, but I do get dates. I know how hard it was when I was that ultra-shy guy who was afraid of rejection (and I still am, but I can hide it better now), so I thought more guys would be better off giving advice than myself.
No other guys wrote in? Hurm. Still, your show did not disappoint. Sometimes it's good just to hear there are normal people in the same situation as you. Sometimes, though, as a guy, I feel it's tough to just approach someone out of the blue because I keep thinking the first thing they're thinking is "Don't hit on me". A couple of my female friends have told me when they're at the grocery store or the post office they just want to get their errands done without being disturbed. Then again, maybe I'm just being too cautious.
Well, there should be some situation awareness and sensitivity to the approach. A person running errands in a grocery store or in a post office most likely doesn't want to be disturbed. Standing in line at a coffee shop or wandering around a bookstore, on the other hand, are times when they're more likely to not mind striking up a conversation.
Well, my friend was waiting in line at the post office, it's not like the guy was trying to talk to her while she was in the middle of something. But I suppose you're right, wandering around a bookstore makes it a bit more socially appropriate. Still, situation awareness and dating don't always go hand in hand.
Excellent episode guys. I am reminded of a quote by Dr. Suess (paraphrased of course): be yourself, because the people who matter don't care and the people who care don't matter.
