All the Lessons Charlie Brown Taught Me About Dating

Charlie Brown Peanuts movie Snoopy

Was anyone else excited for that peek at The Peanuts animated film that came out today? There’s no dialog or any sign of the adorably intelligent Linus, but we do get a glimpse of Charlie Brown at his Charlie Browniest (ie: sad, confused, mocked by his dog). Steve Martino, the upcoming film’s director, summed up my love for the blockhead in an interview with USA Today, “Charlie Brown is the guy who picks himself up after every fall and tries again.”

That little, bald kid helped me many a time with life and dating, probably because he’s the best mix of delusional optimism, anxiety, and melancholy. Charlie Brown’s knows what I’m talking about. He’s been there, even if he never did date that Little Red Haired girl.
