LOL! You got me, Cook! Yes, a lot of the Nerd Romance series is based on conversations with Deb. Also, though, women I knew in my 20s and 30s. I would have loved to fallen back on conversations from my teens, but I didn’t have any female friends in high school, never mind girl friends or dates. However, doing dumb things and having women get mad at me for it seems to be timeless; currently it’s been less than 24 hours since I was stupid and pissed off Deb, for example (and the day is not over as I type this).
