Jerrod Melman is a managing partner of Hub51, the dining, nightlife, and social establishment created by him and his brother, R.J., in Chicago’s River North neighborhood.
Jerrod is not a relationship expert. At the rate he’s going, he probably never will be. He didn’t go to graduate school and get a PhD in this subject. On paper, he is in no way qualified for this job. He’s been on great dates and terrible dates and everything in between. He’s dumped girls and been dumped; he’s blown girls off and been blown off; dented hearts and had his dented. He has done and said things that made girls cry, then done and said things he didn’t necessarily mean to make them stop. He’s not always proud of these things, and he’s certainly not trying to brag, but in his few years as a dating adult, he has learned a lot.
He is, however, fascinated by the way men and women relate. If that doesn’t make him an expert, it just might make him some kind of student teacher. Hopefully, this column will help share a little of what he’s learned, and maybe shed some light on the way men think, from one man’s perspective. Jerrod and The Cheeky Girls wanted to call the column “Advice from a Jerrk” – hopefully not because he’s a jerk (he does have his moments), but because his advice tends to be blunt and non-sugar coated. That being said, he’s here to try to help guide our readers through the dating maze. He confesses he’s both nervous and excited, and committed to do his best to call your situation like he sees it. Ask him anything you want, just email him at Jerrod@cheekychicago.com. He’ll give you his best, most honest answer, and hopefully it won’t make you cry.
