The Lloyd Dobler Effect

I have two types of guys. The first guy is very easy to describe, he's a tall, skinny, rocker type (but a rocker more in the vein of Pulp than Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers).

The other type has been harder for me to describe. He's a nerdier type of man, but not the kind who is into World of Warcraft or any of that weird digital hocus pocus shit. I ain't into that. He's also not so nerdy that his social life consists of him watching films about other nerdy guys all weekend. He's the kind of guy who is cute, dresses well but not so well that you would mistake him for a GQ model (or stylist), and is creative and good at...something.

I'm afraid (and sure) I will go my whole life comparing every Man I date to Lloyd Dobler.
