he loves his angst more

Punker boys are a bit . . . shall we say, angsty? So you can imagine how difficult it is to date this kind of fella. Stereotypically, punkers tend to fight a lot, mosh at concerts and pierce plenty of body parts. They also tend to live in the past, since the real punk movement sorta died out in the '80s. Here's a few pointers on how to keep your unstable Sid Vicious in his semi-happy place.

DISCLAIMER: By the way, these tips aren't meant to upset the actual punkers, stoners, musicians, ravers, goths and other types who visit Grrl.com. Sure not all musicians care more about their guitars than their girlfriends, and not all stoners eat tons of Ho-Hos, and not all goths wear black eyeliner, and not all ravers take E. But that's not the point. THIS IS IN JEST AND GOOD FUN. Learn to laugh at yourself a little. After all, not only have I dated all these stereotypes, but at different points of my life I was each of these stereotyoes myself -- except for the Redneck, that is.
