I want to tell you about the second girlfriend I ever had. We dated for two whole weeks until she broke things off and shattered my heart. That same night, I had my best friend over for a sleepover and I was crying to him about how much she hurt me. The reason she ended things? Because I was too afraid to talk to her…Yup.

When this happened, I was 16 years old. I was a nerd. So how did I even get a girlfriend to stay with me for two weeks? Because I had another girl vouch for me. And that happened with the next two girlfriends after that. Today, we’re talking about referrals.
