    Never Rarely Sometimes Always

    ★★★★

    To quote my hero Erica Albright from The Social Network:

    “You are probably going to be a very successful computer person. But you're going to go through life thinking that girls don't like you because you're a nerd. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that won't be true. It'll be because you're an asshole.”
