Dear Rick 4 – High School Girlfriend
Scott Douglas Jacobsen and Rick Rosner
November 30, 2016
Scott: For high school students, how do they get a girlfriend?
Rick: When I was in high school, nerds had a hard time getting girlfriends. You can find people to get you through the awful high school years. That’s one way of getting a girlfriend, be patient. Most people who want a relationship will have one before they die.
My friends and I were desperate. My buddy Joe and I would walk our dogs together for hours and be all freaked out about no girlfriends and talk about who might like us and what we could do to get girls to like us. A part of it is waiting for things to happen in the course of time.
A lot of people in high school aren’t ready for intimate relationships. When I went to high school, getting laid was a mark of social success, but for girls, sometimes, especially at that age being sexually active is a bad move. Plus, I wasn’t anybody that girls would want to have sex with at the time.
I wasn’t anybody’s idea of a good potential boyfriend. If they put up with me in my nerdy years, they might have gotten a shot living with a guy who has been successful for a while, or who was successful for a while, in Hollywood.
