Mary Posa is the average millennial, she works at a job that she dislikes and barely makes enough to meet her rent payments. Her attempts to find another job constantly fail, forcing her to remain at the job that she is in: a henchgirl for the villainous Butterfly Gang.

Josh is on a mission: why has he never had a girlfriend? The plan is simple, recall all the close encounters that he has had with women to determine what went wrong. What about him caused them to never take the plunge for the title of boyfriend and girlfriend? Each chapter is devoted to one almost-but-not-quite-girlfriend with their name being the title. After reviewing the background of each lucky lady, Josh comes up with a hypothesis as to why their relationship never bloomed. These hypotheses typically involve some type of self-deprecation on his behalf: Subject was interested but due to some mishap on his end and/or his awkward personality, she lost interest. Josh then arranges a meeting with each woman to hear their side of the story.
