Your new pouty avatar is really kind of cute and all. Just figured I'd throw it out there.
Also, cheer up buttercup. I know we don't really know each other, but you see, like a pretty smart person--and even pretty nice at times. So chin up and all that, and if you ever need help writing (or hell, if you just wanna TALK about writing), hit me up. I'm free to talk and stuff.
It does attract girls though. Being a dick attracts dudes and chicks because chicks/dudes see a guy who acts like that as a guy who isn't a doormat/someone who needs to cling to people. They see him as a guy who knows what he wants and will yell at you angrily during sex and that's hot. That's how I talk to all the dudes I like.
