A New Obsession
Sunday, 2008 February 10 - 7:23 pm
I've recently become totally hooked on Yahoo! Answers. If you're not familiar with this, it's a forum where people ask questions in a broad array of categories, and any idiot with a computer can post answers. Now, I am that idiot.

At first, I starting poking through the computer section, figuring I'd have useful knowledge to contribute there, but there were too many questions like "How do I put pictures on MySpace?" or "My Windows crashed, what do I do?" So I got bored with that.

But then I found the Singles and Dating section. Oh. My. God. It's a match made in heaven: thousands of lovelorn teens and young adults on one side, and my opinionated advice based on decades of dating experience on the other.

True, the vast majority of questions are pointless to answer. A lot of them say things like, "I like this boy in my class, he smiled at me once, do you think he likes me?" What do you say to THAT? "Probably not; it's just a tick."

But there are others. There are the people who are infatuated with their first loves, and don't know how to deal with life without them. There are the poor shy fellas who have never been on a date before, and don't know how to approach women. There are the people who are trying to figure out whether to stay with boyfriends or girlfriends who don't treat them well. These people, I can help... I've lived through all of that.

The best thing? I think these people can actually benefit from my advice. I feel like I can really make a difference. It's cool. Sometimes I think I should do this sort of thing for a living.

So, at first I thought you were answering questions in a computer-help forum occupied by single people. This may be why I'm single.
