Brian Herzlinger, the writer, director and star of My Date With Drew, is the nice Jewish guy my grandmother would have wanted me to marry. Unpretentiously good-looking, Herzlinger isn't the shiniest star in the sky, but he is milquetoast-funny and sincere. He just generally oozes that puppy-dog thing that girls who like John Cusack are generally into, but which generally bores a girl like me to tears. I don't think men like Herzlinger really get laid any less often than, say, men like George Clooney, but when they do, eight times out of ten it's because they've been using falsely accrued pity as currency. They pitch themselves as losers in the  hope that girls might tell them they're wrong. They are the reason why Fight Club needed to be invented.
