Much like the guys with something to prove, this isn’t about connecting with a person, so much as finding some combination that’s equal parts blow-jobs and life-coach.
The thing is: your partners aren’t there to fix you or fill a hole in your life.
That’s why we call them “partners” instead of “repairmen” or “tech support”.
It’s a very understandable motivation, when you get right down to it. You’ve been reinforcing your archetype, building your new style and you’re starting to have some successes.
When you’ve been branded a loser or The One Who Was Not Good With Girls as I was, there are times when you feel like you’re the Last American Virgin. In fact, you may be having more success than you ever believed possible.
