John: Hi, I'm John Green and I'm here to give you some romantic advice.

Announcer: YA Novelist and YouTube Vlogger John Green's been dishing out advice since he launched the Vlogbrothers in 2007. Here he answers questions from Twitter with the help of his trusty sock puppet. Lesson 1: Don't date someone who doesn't think you're smart.

Sock: My boyfriend says I'm too smart for him, but I really like him. Should I start acting stup...

John: I've said it before and I'll say it again. The Venn diagram of "boys who don't like smart girls" and "boys you don't want to date" is a circle.

Announcer: Green reiterated "It's more fun to date smart girls" in Fault in Our Stars.

Augustus: Your hands are so cold.

Hazel: Well, they're not so much cold as just under oxygenated.

Augustus: I love it when you talk medical to me.

Announcer: In his vlog "How to make guys like you", we found lesson 2: Nerd boys make great boyfriends.

John: The sixth way to get boys to like you?: Consider different boys. Katie, I have two words for you: Nerd Boys.

Announcer: Green gives nerdy boys their moment in the Sun in Paper Towns.

Radar: Does it really make sense for us to go our teenage years never having been to a high school party?

Quentin: We've been to plenty of parties.

Ben: No. No.

Radar: If there's a tuba there it's not a party.

Announcer: For lesson 3, John got Rainn Wilson to help him out and remind us to feel our feelings.

Rainn: I think we learned a very valuable life lesson and that's what happens when you get dumped. You've just got to roll with it. Bring it all back together. Boom.

John: That's good advice. I remember when I got dumped when I was, like, 22 and it was really devastating to me and I said to someone I cared about "I don't understand why this hurts so much?" and she said "It hurts because it mattered."

Rainn: Wow.

Announcer: Green has been so good at making his followers get in tune with their emotions that he was even asked to help orchestrate a proposal on his YouTube channel.

John: Is Phil there with you, by the way?

Kelly: Yes he is.

John: I have another small question for you, actually.

Kelly: Oh yeah?

John: Will you marry him?

Kelly: Yes.

John: Yeah! She said yes!

Announcer: John Green's lesson 4 reminds us that if we like someone we should just tell them.

John: "I like this guy and I think he likes me back but I'm not sure. How do I find out for sure?" I'm gonna tell you what I tell Henry several times a day "Use your words". Just talk to him. If you start going out you're gonna have to talk to him anyway.

Announcer: Fortunately for us, Green and his characters are excellent at expressing themselves.

Gus: Hazel Grace, I hope you realize that you trying to keep your distance from me in no way lessons my affection for you.

Announcer: Finally, Green's a feminist when it comes to marriage in our fifth lesson on love: The woman has a say too.

John: The number one way to find out if your boyfriend is gonna propose is to ask him and to talk about it because it's weird that in our culture for some reason marriage is something thrust upon women. Like boys get to spend six months deciding if they want to get married but then the girl only has, like, ten seconds to say yes or no.

Announcer: Actually, Green even devoted a whole show to schooling us all on how women are superheroes.

John: Oh me from the past, you snivelling little idiot. Wonder Woman is from the DC universe!

Announcer: Thank you, John Green, for your romantic life lessons on the page, in your vlogs, and though your eloquent on-screen characters. We now feel a little less alone.

John: And don't forget to go see Paper Towns July 24th. Thanks guys.
