SHOULDN'T ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS TEACH THIS? From The University of Chicago events calendar:
Flirting for Nerds
When: Thursday, February 11, 2010 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Where: Reynolds Club, McCormick Tribune Lounge, 5706 South University, Chicago, IL
Description: Having trouble shaking your nerdy image and attracting the apple of your eye? Well, push those glasses up on your nose, take a puff off your inhaler and learn to flirt like a pro. Instructor Rebecca Steinmetz will teach you fun, noncheesy ways to break the ice and brush up on fundamentals such as reading body language.
Not to be overly harsh on my graduate school alma mater, but when that same educator was invited to give a presentation at Northwestern this fall, her topics deemed appropriate for Evanston included "a frank and informative discussion of women’s sexuality ... anything and everything a guy would need to know to make his girl happy. In 'Men Below the Belt', she explained how to please a man in the area between his hips and knees. Steinmetz provided helpful hints on how to improve the region’s smell and taste (what you eat, drink or smoke is key) and gave step-by-step instructions on how to put on a condom with no hands."

Down in Hyde Park, however, it's more like that Marty McFly line after his Van Halen-esque guitar solo at the Enchantment Under The Sea dance -- I guess you guys aren't ready for that.


  1. If party A and party B are meant to become romantically involved, the market will ensure that they do, at least in a world of perfect information and minimized transaction costs.  Right?

    My own personal fieldwork as an awkward,bookish 20-something transplant citizen of Chicago revealed U of C grads to be  delightful, awesome, not at all full of themselves people. Simpatico.  (Of course, the one who moved in my broke-ass, nonprofit circles, they were all liberal arts types. ) But the Northwestern alums in that same circle? Take that; reverse it. Conclusion: The Nerdly are my peeps. Go Maroons! And don't worry, sweetie. We'll figure it out.

  5. Heh, Matt.  I'm still of the belief that there are plenty of U of C undergrads who graduate with social skills.  Roughly the same set of folks who started at the U of C with social skills.
