Zosia Mamet, the actress who plays the naive, jappy Shoshanna on HBO’s new show Girls, discussed just how bad dating really is last night on Conan. She also cursed a lot and called herself a weirdo. Swoon.

“I’m curious,” Conan says, “Is it that bad? Is dating in your 20s that bad?”
“It’s pretty fucking bad,” she responds. “In my experience, I haven’t found it to be particularly enjoyable.”

The kicker: “90 percent of the time when I go on dates,” Mamet says, “I find myself thinking, ‘I could be reading my book instead.'”
