Andrew Jenks' 'It's About A Girl': Episode 4

"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 episode 4 of "It's About A Girl," the series' protagonist fantasizes about a girlfriend who makes an otherwise mundane activity, like shopping for clothes, playful and fun. His reality, however, involves attempting to strike up a conversation in a much more formal, high-brow environment. (Spoiler alert: It doesn't go very well.)

Andrew Jenks described his desire to approach intellectually curious women in a Q&A with the Huffington Post. He said:

Whenever I was walking around the city I would notice so many beautiful women. And I’d start to think about what the perfect woman would be like -- a scientist, or an engineer -- women that were really smart or came from a unique background or was really funny (to make up for me not being funny). And I kept thinking, man, what if I had the guts to go up to one of these women?

Watch the full episode above, and check in next week for the next installment.
