Guide to flirting

I downloaded this to my PalmPilot last week and though I can't report any improvement in my batting average, it sure helps to have this handy-dandy reference at the tap of a stylus! Knowledge is power, I always say.

"To show interest while your target is speaking, you need to look at his/her face about three-quarters of the time, in glances lasting between one and seven seconds. The person speaking will normally look at you for less than half this time, and direct eye contact will be intermittent, rarely lasting more than one second. When your target has finished speaking, and expects a response, he or she will look at you and make brief eye contact again to indicate that it is your turn. "

and to think i thought she was a knicks' fan...

some equally grand advice for meeting people:


The best approaches spark mutual interest. Say you're at a basketball game and the guy in the seat below you is cute. During an exciting play, yell loudly and then lean over to apologize for your passion and zeal. “I just get so carried away when my team scores. Sorry for hollering over you."
