Oh yeah, he is. And as someone pointed out upthread, all women are shallow because they won't look past his exterior. Any that do are only after his money. (he doesn't have any).
He's currenly moaning on facebook about how hard it is to be a romantic and wear his heart on his sleeve, only to have it broken over and over. He developed a mad crush on a cute young (nearly 15 years his junior) college student, very slim and attractive, and she's now the love of his life and it breaks his heart every time she doesn't return a text, etc. For the record she seems perfectly nice and friendly, just not interested in him romantically. And since he just moved back home with his parents, 1500 miles from where she lives...yeah, that one's kinda doomed.
