"The Movie Set"—A cautionary tale for young people

When I was in my mid-twenties and still single, I knew a guy from my synagogue who was very handsome.

I could barely tolerate him.

Women of my generation would describe him as one of those guys who thinks he's G-d's gift to womankind. He thought he could "coast" on his good looks alone. Well, he couldn't. He never had anything interesting to say, and I thought he was a crashing bore.

Years ago, I gave him the secret nickname “The Movie Set.” Like a movie set, he was all façade, with nothing behind it.

I had no use for him whatsover.

A gift box with nothing in it, however beautifully wrapped, is still an empty box. And not many people appreciate getting an empty gift box. Don't think that you're going to be of any interest to, well, anyone to whom you wish to be of interest unless you have something interesting going on upstairs to offer them. You'd be surprised by how few people are interested in a person who's only a pretty face.

Reading about some of your daughter's roommates being clothing-obsessed.
