Andrew Jenks' 'It's About A Girl': Episode 2

07/16/2013 08:41 am ET

"It's About A Girl" is a new web series from filmmaker Andrew Jenks, charting the experience of looking for love in your twenties -- and what happens when your expectations don't quite match up to reality. A new episode will be posted here on HuffPost Women each week.

In this week's installment of "It's About A Girl," the protagonist's fantasy involves elegant rooftop drinks with the beautiful woman he met last week. Unfortunately, his date is pretty far from his reality -- which involves making epically awkward eyes at a girl on the subway.

In a Q&A with the Huffington Post, Jenks reflected on how frustrating it is to be surrounded by interesting strangers but be unable to summon the courage to speak to them: "Man, what if I had the guts to go up to one of these women? I'm a normal guy. I can talk and be cool. But I never did."

Watch episode 2 in its entirety above, and check back next week for the third installment.
