Boy Friend
Between Those Two Words, a Guy Can Get Crushed

Great headline!

The Washington Post introduces the rest of us to Matt Brochu's and his column about yearning for a girl. Over 500 responses to What She Doesn't Know Will Kill You were posted. This column is not utterly brillant. This column is sweet, simple, honest, and amazingly daring. The added wow factor (and I am betting what got the Post's attention) was the response.

The amount of people that related to his personal love drama was sugary sweet. They are mostly romantics looking for what we all look for --validation and support.

We humans just plain fell better when we hear someone else has experienced the same, especially when they are able to so effectively articulate what we have never been able to express to even ourselves.
