Alex dating advice
If he can’t handle your fabulousness, then phooey on him. FM: Can you rank the Ivies in terms of social awkwardness/inability to date normally? AB: My love life as a Harvard student was pretty much non-existent. AB: The first step is to reassure the students that “you can do this.” It’s not a big deal and it’s not difficult at all. FM: How did your parents react to your switch from medical school to dating? AB: For me, it’s just the gratification of seeing people apply the knowledge and get results...really, it’s about people getting back their personal power. FM: How can we nerds lead normal love lives and normal lives in general?
AB: The less other stuff there is to do in town, the more you’re going to just sit around and drink and party, so I’m going to say Princeton probably had more fun than we did, just by virtue of being in Princeton, New Jersey. This is the problem with campuses like Harvard and other very high-achieving, high-strung campuses—it’s that people become devalued. I mean, let’s face it: if you’re sitting there right now, you are proof-positive that every single one of your ancestors, going back to Australopithecus down to the very first amoeba, they got it on, at least once, successfully, with somebody, so it can’t be that tough. Anything that smacks of an absolute rule is not necessarily bound to serve you. FM: Feel free to decline answering this one: Do you have any personal dating horror stories that you would be willing to share? AB: In med school they had a class entitled “Clinical Hypnotherapy,” and being of a scientific bent I thought I’m going to go in there and heckle these cats because this is a whole bunch of nonsense. AB: I think my mom’s words were “My life has now ended.” But at the same time, she understands, and my dad has always been understanding. FM: You have a Master of Philosophy from Cambridge. AB: It’s mostly about courage, just being willing to put yourself out there and try a couple of new things..lots of people, hang out with them, go out on dates, go to all the formals, and be willing to extend yourself and put yourself out there and ask people out.
"Please don't assume we're going to the nicest restaurant in the city because I won't take you there.
I'll take you to a dive bar with amazing burgers to see how you react.
If you're flowing with it and cool, we've got a winner.
If you seem offended by it, that's as far as we go." —Steve M."Girls should try to avoid pre-judging before a first date.
Don't ask your friends to tell you everything they can because you can end up with a tainted view of what to expect.
