T he sound of their laughter as I walked away still rings in my ears, a painful reminder of my position in the school and more importantly, the position I’d
occupy throughout life…
Sometimes an event or experience in
your life can be a catalyst for change,
an experience so cataclysmic or so
humiliating that you just know you don’t ever want to be in that position again.
In my case, it was a series of events during my high school years that all came together to shape my future; I can’t say I decided then and there that I was going to be recognized as one of the world’s top experts in dating and attraction, but these events certainly made me see what I didn’t want to be. At the top of that list, I was never again going to be that geek voted by his peers as “least likely to ever get a girlfriend.”
