You can't get upset when Jessica Alba wins a competition based on looks.

Hello, Jenn! Did you know that you were in "KJR's Bigger Dance" competition here in Seattle? It was 64 hotties competing in a contest set up like the NCAA brackets. Jessica Alba won, but you finished in the top half. Congrats! -- Andy, Seattle
Dude, how in the world am I supposed to compete with Jessica Alba? That's like the Yankees playing a yard game with some Little Leaguers. It's OK, though -- at least I beat out Anna Benson and hopefully won over some new fans in the area. Thanks for listening, and hopefully I will see you around next year. I mean, if George Mason can go to the Final Four, anything is possible (only I won't be singing I Be on That Kryptonite).
Jenn, I am a recent college graduate, and a single guy who works for an engineering firm now. Needless to say, there are not a lot of single attractive women at work. Since work is where I spend most of my waking hours (it seems like), where is a good place for me to meet quality women? I am not a big fan of church girls, and I don't want to be the creepy "old guy" at the local college bars. What do I do? -- Brad, Orlando
I am a firm believer in not dating people from the workplace, so you get bonus points for already figuring that one out. Church also seems like an awkward place to meet women in general, because -- no offense, buddy -- unless your name is Jesus Christ, they did not come there to meet you. And yes, women do find that creepy old guy at the end of the bar, well, creepy. So you need to expand your horizons. Sometimes the best way to meet new people is to take up a new hobby or join a new organization. It's easier to make a connection with someone if you have common interests, so why not find one that caters to women as well? I doubt there will be many women in the Rifle Association or in your fantasy-football league, but there may be some at a local health club or at a more upscale bar establishment. If anything, it's worth a shot. What do you have to lose? You may not find the girl of your dreams, but you might make some new friends.
