Pete’s in love with his roommate’s girlfriend, a beautiful, quirky, and charming girl named Alex. They are never apart. They are best friends. And she is madly in love with the most effeminate heterosexual heartthrob since that guy from the Partridge Family. But as far as Pete can tell, this is her only flaw. Through hilarious flashbacks and Pete’s own commentary, we journey with him through the all too familiar anguish of enduring a friendship that you know should be so much more. With self-deprecating humor and insightful rants on what it means to be “right” for someone, Pete represents the hopeless romantic and loveable loser in all of us.
