How To Woo Me

Thanks for the request, @karlalucia - Changed the title a bit. πŸ˜‰
  1. 1.
    Text me what sweater you want me to wear when you see me later.
    Other clothing requests are acceptable.
  2. 2.
    Email me your thoughts on the movie we saw last night.
    A text is good too; The key difference is that an email feels complete as itself while a text is just a shard looking for another shard.
  3. 3.
    (Basically, textual chemistry has become a pretty big part of what attracts me; I've lost interest in many a woman, otherwise wooing me, when we didn't seem to mesh in the ol' Messages app.)
  4. 4.
    When we only text a few texts at a time.
    I don't have enough material for an ongoing convo. Let's make the most of small moments and check back in when the tank's full.
  5. 5.
    Wear something that shows off your collar bones.
    It's a clichΓ© because it's true.
  6. 6.
    Laugh at my jokes
    Just the good ones. I'm not a complete animal.
  7. 7.
    "Yes-And" me
    I don't *just* want and audience; I want a partner in verbal πŸ“ or perhaps the more graceful banter-🏸
  8. 8.
    When I reference some old obscure movie in a group setting and you quote a line from it back to me, while everyone else draws a blank stare.
  9. 9.
    Lean ever so slightly back into my hand when I place it on the small of your back.
  10. 10.
    If we're out for the evening, and you've had a drink, tell me how you'll brush you teeth when we get home, so I can kiss you.
    As a Sober American, I can't necessarily jump right into a make-out sesh with someone who's been drinking. Letting me know, in small ways, that you understand the situation and want to find ways to work around it, is πŸ”₯πŸ’₯πŸ”₯
  11. 11.
    Put your hair up so I can see the line of your neck.
  12. 12.
    Take me to your favorite section in your favorite used bookstore.
  13. 13.
    Let me take you to this theater and hold hands with me while we watch an old movie.
    Doesn't even have to be a good movie; Seeing an old scratchy print in Minneapolis' very tiny Trylon theater is an incredibly intimate experience.
  14. 14.
    Dance with me by the light of backyard tiki lights.
