    I give cute girls hugs in my dreams and wake up with numerous painful wounds that look like I was savagely beaten by a two x four...

    That feeling is denial of how deep your nerdery goes. Just give into it.
    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
