Absorbers of a different kind

Many many years ago I heard someone make a shocking statement. He said that every single Bochur should have a girlfriend. Unfortunately, before I could start making some phone calls, he explained himself thusly:

Every Bochur needs someone who he can call at 3:00 AM. Every Bochur needs someone who will listen to his problems. Every Bochur needs someone that he feels responsibility for. Every Bochur needs someone who will appreciate him for what he is, in addition to what he can become. Every Bochur needs someone who he can buy a birthday present for, and who can buy him one too. Basically, every Bochur needs a little love.
If parents and teachers were this someone, then no Bochur would need a girlfriend.

In other news, it has come to my attention that Nemo is taking the fight to the streets. At some point an op-ed of his about cellphones in Yeshivas will grace CH.info. I'm not taking credit for inspiring this or anything, but...
