5. Show her you like her while acting like you don’t.
It’s a precise tightrope. Find the perfect balance between trying hard and playing hard to get.
6. Masterfully construct the perfect text message.
Bear in mind that girls will critically analyze and decipher every word. That’s assuming your message stands out from the dozens of alerts she gets from Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Snapchat, other lads, etc.
7. Master the game of text-message tennis.
Become the Andy Murray of messaging. Every time your love match sends you a text, you’ll need to send a better one flying straight back at her. As with tennis, the length and timing of every shot you take is crucial.
8. Organize a romantic first date.
This typically involves a few hours of light flirting, avoiding awkward silences, and solving the even more awkward conundrum of who should pay. (It’s 2014; is anyone sure about this anymore?)
9. Organize a second and third date.
Someone went and told women that men would want them MORE if they waited to put out—and they believed it! The end result was the three-date rule. This rule has now been around so long that some girls wait four or five dates before giving it up. I call this “dating inflation.”
