“I’ve being following you for 2 or 3 weeks now, & I like your tumblr & show -I noticed that all beers there are belgians, wich is awesome- Okey, going to my point-question!
What would you say to all of us that actually wanna love being single?
And a fan question: It is the story bassed in your experience or it’s a mix of stories? Did you noticed that all beers were belgians? -I love belgian beer.
The part question deserves a 3 part response!
1. To everyone who wants to love being single, I think you have the right approach! I encourage anyone and everyone to get to a place where they are happy in life, whatever that means for them. I do think it’s true (even though it’s cliché) that a really important part of life that everyone should experience is to be happy by yourself. I’ve been through a lot of phases of being happy and the others when I was lonely, and, and others when I just hated being single. I made the web series to show off the specific time in my life when I was the most clearly uncomfortable. It’s more about not fitting in than actually about being single. I don’t think it’s a positive way to be, I don’t want the character of the show to be a role model. He is there for us to relate to, or to laugh at, because he makes huge mistakes constantly. Which brings us to part 2.
2. Some of the situations in the show are from real life, and some are just what I imagine I would do today if I was single, or if I wasn’t as self reserved. the basic premise of the pilot episode is almost straight from my life 6 years ago.
Some are things I want to do or say looking back on my single years. So it’s a mix of lots of things but I have definitely paid my dues as a young man who was bad at dating, and wasn’t happy with the situation he was in. I think if I was in the situation today, as an older guy with more experience and confidence, I would find a way to make it work but that’s because I now have a whole new life that I’ve built in NYC after years of being here.
3. The fact that all the beers are Belgian is a pretty amazing coincidence actually. I love Belgian Beer too but I just noticed it is prominent in episode 4 and 5. I think Brooklyn loves Belgian beer in general, that must’ve been a subliminal thing.
I’m just happy you watched and were nice enough to write to me about the show! Thanks again clickealo”
My instinct is to usually leave things when they end the first time but that’s me. Look at the positives and negatives and do you forsee yourself being happy or why did it end and why would it be different? if you can answer the questions you’ll have a better time deciding.
Take some pressure off. It’s gonna be fine. Give it a try and talk to him. If your friends gave you a signal then why not give it a shot. Push through the shyness and be proud of yourself for doing something new. Tell him the weird guy on the internet told you to!

I’ve never thought to define it… I’m not sure how to put it into words either. I guess maybe it’s knowing someone on a personal level intimately and having the overall feeling of happiness from that relationship? I don’t think you can love someone that you barely know, but you can know someone intimately very quickly. And then again it’s possible for 2 people to love each other but still not be happy either. It’s all subjective, so I can’t say that for anyone else. This makes my head spin. Yeah, love shouldn’t be defined.
Don’t ever say yes to the pictures. It sounds like you know that but just in case. I’m gonna be honest, it sounds like he is just a nasty perv who wants to use you for sex. If he was worth talking to he would get in touch at times that didn’t involve you giving him naked photos. So, if you want my advice, stop liking him.
