The Pantsless Bear
Welcome to the first edition of The Pantsless Bear (or Dating in the Post 9/11 World). Over the coming months we’ll be taking you through a number of the angles of the dating world, many through the eyes of the Pantsless Bear. If you’re still reading, a Pantsless Bear is code for your dime a dozen unsuccessful male of dating age who attempts to win the affections of women by:
- endlessly calling them
- showering them with gifts
- public declarations of undying love (before confirmation said love is reciprocated) and
- attempting to learn the art of seduction from dating and pickup blogs.
We dub them Pantsless Bears because, once their desperate and at times manipulative tactics have failed to secure the affection of a prospective belle, it’s an apt description of how they are perceived – cuddly, safe, penis free but ultimately unattractive.
So welcome aboard and let’s get on with the show.
