Xbox Game Teaches Guys How to Talk to Girls

“Are you nervous talking to girls? All you need is a little practice.”

No, that’s not the narrator from a 1950s educational film. It’s the tagline for a brand new XBox game called Don’t B Nervous Talking 2 Girls.

Yes, we’ve come to this. We’re so firmly ensconced in our MyFaceTwitterBookEmailTubeXBox world that we need a video game to instruct our nation’s virile young men in the art of conversing with flesh-and-blood women.

In Don’t B Nervous, gamers embark on a fantasy date with an attractive young woman who’s been recorded on videotape. Players are then offered two dialogue options. If they choose correctly, they win the girl’s approval – and a higher score. If they choose incorrectly, not only does their score plummet, but they get a snarky response from their date. Our favorite?

“Leave now before I call the police.”

Who among us hasn’t wanted to utter that after our date said something stupid? We’re big believers that practice makes perfect. But a video game to rehearse your courting skills? What’s wrong with trying out your lines on a real lady? (Hint, hint…)

We had to wonder – is this game for real?

So we tracked down David Flook, who, along with his brother Jonathan, created Don’t B Nervous Talking 2 Girls.

David, a shy 37-year-old, tells BettyConfidential he’s thrilled with the strong response the game’s received since its release just a few days ago.

“People find it curious and sort of strange and weird,” he says.

    Had to create an account just to comment on this article. It was a good read save the last sentence. As a gamer, naturally I had to tear it apart. If they do indeed make a “Don’t B Nervous Talking 2 Boyz” it will most likely be an Indie Game like its predecessor, meaning that it is downloadable; electronic. One needn’t pre-order a downloadable game. They do not run out of copies. I was disheartened at the thought that many of the “women-haven’t-the-slightest-clue-when-it-comes-to-video-games” stereotypes were possibly true. Though, it is also possible that I am being overly critical of trivial matters.
