Bridging the gap.
Troubled waters in your sea of love, mate?
This guy in my class constantly flirts with girls. He puts his arm around them or holds their hands while he tells them jokes. When he was like that with me, I thought he liked me. Then, I realized he is this way with everybody. Is he a flirt or a jerk?
BILL: Can't a guy be a flirt without being a jerk? We all want to be the center of someone's world; this guy wants to be the center of everyone's. Sort of goes against the law of gravity

My BF is scared his friends will tease him if he shows he cares about me. Is there anything I can do to make him more comfortable?
BILL: There's a big river of life between being a boy and being a guy, and the bridge across the river is the ability to tell a girl you care about her. Sounds like your BF is on the bridge and thinking about turning back. Give him some time.
DAVE: I need Cliffs Notes to follow Bill's references to 19th-century British poets and analogies about life. Are you the bridge or the river?! Perhaps we should rename Re`name´
v. t. 1. To give a new name to.
Verb 1. rename - assign a new name to; "Many streets in the former East Germany were renamed in 1990" the column "Guys Q&A with Dave and The Bard." Hey, I'm game--I can analogize a·nal·o·gize
v. a·nal·o·gized, a·nal·o·giz·ing, a·nal·o·giz·es
To make an analogy of or concerning: analogize the human brain to a computer.
v.intr. with the best of 'em. OK, entering a relationship is like diving into an empty pool. You just have to hope someone fills the pool with water before you land. If you two are on the same level, great. If not, scrape your flat-as-a-pancake heart off the bottom of the deep end and find yourself another diving board.
I really want a BF. But it seems all the decent guys are taken, and I don't want to go out with a total jerk. Am I being too picky pick·y
adj. pick·i·er, pick·i·est Informal
Excessively meticulous; fussy.
[pickier, pickiest] Brit, Austral & NZ ?
BILL: Not wanting to be with a jerk is smart, not picky. But the decent guys who are taken might become free next week. And the total jerk might turn out to be a pretty nice guy once you get to know him. Don't push too hard just to have a BF. If you get in a relationship with Mr. Wrong, you might not see Mr. Right Mr. Right

See : Castaway do? Did she go out with Mr. Howell (married), the Skipper (out of shape and too old), Gilligan (come on, Ginger and Gilligan?) or the Professor (geek A technically oriented person. It has typically implied a "nerdy" or "weird" personality, someone with limited social skills who likes to tinker with scientific or high-tech projects. The origin of the term dates back to the late 1800s. )? Nope, she waited. It's a good rule to live by. Just don't wear the same dress for six years.
My BF dumped me. Well, actually, he told his friends to dump me. What's up with that?
BILL: Cold! Maybe your friends could tell his friends to give him a few tips on how to break up like a man: 1) Tell the truth, 2) do it in person, 3) wish the girl the best.
DAVE: I've heard of the Phone Break Up, the E-mail Blow Off and the Instant Message Good-bye, but never the Proxy Friend Dump. Some-times, it is best to view dating as an ongoing live-and-learn experiment. Put this one in the loss column, and move on with the knowledge that the next guy can't possibly be this weak.
There is this cute guy, and I like him. He's in ninth grade, and I'm in seventh. Is he too old for me?
BILL: Uh...yeah! He is in high school, and you are in middle school. These are two different planets. Enjoy your planet with your planeteers, not with an alien from the planet High School!
DAVE: Let's approach this with an easy mathematical formula: your age + his age = x. Can you divide the answer by 2 and get your age within 12 months? If not, you're dating the wrong guy or dozing off during math class.
