I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons,
And maybe we'll never know most of them.
But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from,
We can still choose where we go from there.

I read several dozen stories a year from miserable, lonely guys who insist that women won’t come near them despite the fact that they are just the nicest guys in the world.
..I’m asking what do you offer? Are you smart? Funny? Interesting? Talented? Ambitious? Creative? OK, now what do you do to demonstrate those attributes to the world? Don’t say that you’re a nice guy — that’s the bare minimum.
“Well, I’m not sexist or racist or greedy or shallow or abusive! Not like those other douchebags!”
I’m sorry, I know that this is hard to hear, but if all you can do is list a bunch of faults you don’t have, then back the fuck away…
Don’t complain about how girls fall for jerks; they fall for those jerks because those jerks have other things they can offer. “But I’m a great listener!” Are you? Because you’re willing to sit quietly in exchange for the chance to be in the proximity of a pretty girl (and spend every second imagining how soft her skin must be)? Well guess what, there’s another guy in her life who also knows how to do that, and he can play the guitar. Saying that you’re a nice guy is like a restaurant whose only selling point is that the food doesn’t make you sick. You’re like a new movie whose title is This Movie Is in English, and its tagline is “The actors are clearly visible”.
IF I COULD FIND YOU NOW THINGS WOULD GET BETTERRRRRRRRR
WE COULD LEAVE THIS TOWN AND RUN FOREVERRRRRR
I KNOW SOME WHERE SOME HOW WE’LL BE TOGETHERRRRR
LET YOUR WAVES CRASH DOWN ON ME AND TAKE ME
AWAYYYY EEEEE YEAHHHH EEEE YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Isn’t it weird to think that 2006 was eight years ago?

The Story of Luke is a fantastic movie and one of my new favorites. Everyone should watch it ASAP.
