The Roué’s Recipe

Success with women what you need?
Here is the best way to proceed.

Although it goes against the grain,
First say nice things about her brain,
Her way with words, her feisty wit,
Her choice of reading (not chick-lit).
However little evidence,
Hint at a subtle fashion sense
(The key words here are verve and flair)
Then segue into things like hair,
Nose, eyes, complexion, legs and all
(For short, petite, for gangling, tall).
Established as a man of taste,
Now risk an arm around her waist . . .

If she turns out a firm resister,
Dump her, and try it on her sister.
