    This is pretty darn awesome.

    omg…i loved the voice he put on when reading the letters. that was awesome. it was tough advice but it’s true…you just gotta talk to them. there’s one boy i still think is cute but he can’t hold a conversation for the life of him so i’m sort of over it because i want us to have fun, not sit in awkward silence! then another boy (who totally fits the description of the first ask a grown about the boys who look like they’re dying) that i talked to and now i am even more in love with him because conversation with him was MAGIC. just go for it! great vid…thanks guys!

    I can’t take him serious with the whole mirror effects thing and intro music. LOL He’s too funny and sincere. He reminds me so much of my uncle…

  • Maddy December 13th, 2011 7:51 PM

    the effects kinda made me nauseous, but Grown Man is a good segment.

    WHAT?! You mean I actually have to talk to a guy if i like him… We might need an article on how to do this Rookie, since teenagers are about the most awkward creatures on the planet.

    Hahaha he’s awesome. Ask a Grown Man is one of my favorite articles on Rookie and it has never disappointed so far.

    I agree with Lotta! I think we need a “DIY” article on how to actually talk to guys. :DD
