The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Birds/Bees 101

Pretty much the entire dating cycle is beyond my comprehension, so I am always interested in other people's methods, especially when they're less unsuccessful than mine.

On the other hand, this technique of Dawn Olsen's seems awfully familiar somehow:

My idea of dating has always been to zero in on my subject and then confuse them with a befuddling mix of flattery and abuse.

On the basis of the available evidence, I surmise that she is more efficient than I.

Only when it really mattered. I suppose that is good!

Dawn's method probably would have been more encouraging than what I usually encountered while dating -- a kind of "oh, are you still here?" attitude that I once mistook for "playing hard to get".

Women can be evil, ya know?

I thought that was one of the prerequisites, it just isn't something that is necessarily used on a daily basis.
