A a stock character in films.
Film critic Nathan Rabin, who coined the term after seeing Kirsten Dunst in Elizabethtown, describes the MPDG as "that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures."

Some introductory (complete) messages I've recently received from an online dating site:
(these were the complete messages)
- "just reading your profile you sound very sure of your self maybe you are just a playa?"
- "Do you tend to internally narrate your own life?"
- "emmm....do you by any chance need a wife? :))"
There is a middle ground between telling your life story, and a pithy stock opening line. Some girls prattle endlessly, others say just hi, and expect the guy to do the work, and some seem to be taking advice from Neil Strauss and open with a neg.

3rd date rule? Shag on the first date? Does it make a difference?
If the only card you hold is letting me sleep with you or not, then it's not going to go far.
I'm still undecided where I stand on this.
If you're not hungry, then it doesn't matter how good the food is.
I've tried not entangling myself with a girl to build more connection, but it's a losing battle.
If you don't have the enthusiasm to see them for subsequent dates, the chemistry ain't there.
