"I try not to watch movies and television with too much sex and violence. They really harm your perspective."
“Those movies and shows give you false expectations. If you watch them too much, you expect that every beautiful woman is a few hours away from jumping in bed with you.

In reality, you should probably just apologize and try to enjoy the person’s company.”
13-year-old Indian girl begins microbiology master’s
