Girls have liked The Artist since pretty much pre-school. This was a conversation he had with his Dad back in 4th grade.
The Doctor: "How was your day at school J?"
The Artist: "Fine. The girls said I was handsome."
The Doctor: "The girls said you were handsome?"
The Artist: "Yes, they said I was handsome and then they chased me because they said they wanted me and so I dashed away."
