Watch Stephen Colbert Give Great Life Advice to Young Girls

"I'm honored to be considered a grown man, thank you very much"

Like Rookie magazine itself, Stephen Colbert’s contribution to the site’s Ask a Grown Man series is aimed at teenage girls, but it has value for just about everybody.

Here, the future Late Show host gives advice about how to tell if somebody likes you, deciphering mixed signals, educating people who make misogynistic jokes and talking with your seemingly close-minded dad abut sex.

If you need more sage wisdom from famous adult males of the world, Ira Glass, Seth Rogan and others (including grown women, too!) have your back.
