Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat
@caberg: You're over-evaluating this. The reason that description is so "precise" is practical. "Megan" (not her real name of course) was gross. She was not just "average looking." She was not "the girl next door." She was gross. Masculine. Seriously. I wanted to make it clear I was not one of those men who "only dates 22-year old 108 lbs supermodels with high cheekbones and green eyes," as many people assume. Understanding this issue is crucial because it followed me throughout the trip, and before: I just could not catch a break with my luck with women. I portrayed this not to be "literary" or write some kind of literary classic (!) but just to write an honest book. Which probably has a lot to do with it's popularity.
