Lesson 1: GET OUT THERE!
Whether it's the Final Frontier or just your local Safeway, you gotta go where the opposite sex hangs out. It's a simple numbers game. How many people come to your house during a day? Now compare that with the number of people who go to the mall in a day. You see where this is going? You gotta visit a lot of planets.
Lesson 2: SMILE, DARN YA!
This one is important. No one is going to be attracted to your manly broodiness, your beautiful ennui, or your teen-age angst (unless they're a 90 year old sparkly vampire). People like to see smiles, even a trademark "amused smirk". Nine time out of ten you'll get one back.
Lesson 3: BE COLOUR BLIND
Brown is good. Gold is good. Green is good. Blue is good...
Lesson 4: BE ROMANTIC
Point out a star and tell your date that in three hundred years time a great poet will be born on the planet circling that star and he will write one of the greatest love poems ever written. She won't believe you anyway, so who cares if it's not true? Just make it sound good.
Lesson 5: KISS HER/HIM LIKE YOU MEAN IT!
If you've managed to get to the kissing part of a date, then why hold back? Kiss her/him like they're the only woman/man in the galaxy and this is the last kiss you'll ever have before the warp core goes critical and your ship explodes.
Now get out there and boldly go!
I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?
