got a psych degree?

At some point as a girl, I can guarantee you will be dating one of these. Sometimes we call them "emotional cripples" because they have a habit of being happy, upset and ultra-indifferent at the wrong moments. They also tend to be extremely selfish and have huge egos which may confuse you after realizing they harbor low self-esteem as well.

Visit this section for tips on how to date and deal with various stereotypes of emotional cripples. As a rule, they are not the ideal kind of boys to be giving your heart to. I will not, however, be held responsible if these tips actually work and you live happily ever after with your guitar-carrying Romeo of choice.

DISCLAIMER: By the way, these tips aren't meant to upset the actual punkers, stoners, musicians, ravers, goths and other types who visit Sure not all musicians care more about their guitars than their girlfriends, and not all stoners eat tons of Ho-Hos, and not all goths wear black eyeliner, and not all ravers take E. But that's not the point. THIS IS IN JEST AND GOOD FUN. Learn to laugh at yourself a little. After all, not only have I dated all these stereotypes, but at different points of my life I was each of these stereotyoes myself -- except for the Redneck, that is.
