Synopsis: Alan Macklin has started his first year at university and he’s saying goodbye to his old life: no more curfews and parental interference, no more high school courses he doesn’t want to take; and, most importantly, no more striking out with girls. At least that’s the plan. But the world of university dating is more complicated than he ever could have imagined. Even his devoutly religious roommate seems to have more luck than him.

His ex-girlfriend Maggie still gives him advice, but it seems that no matter what, Alan can only get so far with a girl.
