This is interesting: Highly Eccentric has gotten a request from Nerve.com to participate in an upcoming column (part of a series), Dating Advice from Medievalists. Here's an example of the current installment, "Dating Advice from Comedy-Club Employees."
Me? I'm supposed to be fixing a tiny snafu in the submission of the Curing Elfshot book, coming up with an Alfred the Great/Boethius paper that's been requested of me, and reading the script of the upcoming Beowulf: Prince of the Geats movie so that I can write a piece on race & Beowulf movies for a different volume.
Naturally, I feel that this is not enough to do, so I'll be emailing the writer to volunteer my services as a dating consultant. I feel I am qualified to offer a historical perspective because a.) I'm a medievalist, and b.) I haven't had a date in this millennium.*
*Unless you count my wife, or that hooker I paid $5k for at the Emperors' Club.
