How the DW Blog Started

This is the post I put on Craigslist SF in the Missed Connections section, February 14th, 2008:

To me, dudes aren't that hard to figure out. But maybe that's just because I'm a dude. Lately, it seems like I'm completely flabbergasting women I know all the time by interpreting what I consider the most basic of dude situations/behaviors/mindsets/etc. I've been giving simple dude interpretations and advice so much we came up with the handle of 'The Dude Whisperer'. And now, after much goading, I am taking this service public. If you are a woman and you want to know what your relationship dude, potential relationship dude, friend dude, brother dude, or any other dude is thinking and why he's acting like he is, email me at thedudewhisperer at yahoo dot com and i will use my powers of elementary dude knowledge to help. It's better for you that way, and better for the dude. I'm happily married so this isn't about doing some pickup artist nonsense- I'd frankly rather not know your name or see your picture. And I have no psychological training or qualifications whatsoever, so keep that in mind, too. I'd like to post some of the best exchanges on a blog (anonymously, of course) so we can do follow ups and see if what I suggested panned out and all that kind of stuff, but we'll cross that bridge after the dude talk. Have a good Valentine's Week.
