When I was still young and rather naive in the ways of love, I remember one of my online friends-- an older gent who went by "Pup" if I recall correctly imparted to me the following advice for dealing with the opposite gender:
1) Don't rely on your charm... you have none. Be yourself, if she doesn't like you for who you are, you're both just wasting your time anyway.
2) The human tongue is on average at least 3" long, no matter how much or how little you have downstairs, learn how to use this asset to your advantage.
3) When all else fails, your right hand is always a sure-fire date on a lonely Saturday night.
Now I've had other advice imparted to me over the years, before that and since then. But this advice, for some reason really stuck with me. And well, given the piece of hardware on my left ring finger, it apparently worked. :-)
