So this goes out to all my boys out there at places like Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Stanford, MIT, Columbia, Duke, Swarthmore, Penn, Cornell, Berkeley, Brown, Dartmouth, Oxford, and Cambridge.
That's also when my career as a professional virgin came to an end. Mom, dad, the sex-ed teacher - none of them had taught me any of this stuff. People only love us for who you are, not who we pretend to be.
To understate things, I was a late bloomer in the realm of romance. This is a serious omission, since our relationships with others are the biggest determinants of happiness in our lives.
