Honey, you know it's true. A lady on the verge of summer, and experiencing the hours of lights down there, likes a few choice things:
1. Ladies like innuendo. Give them some. Then deliver.
2. They also like gifts that express YOUR FEELINGS. But, they don't like it when you present such gifts then try to be like "cool, whatever, I have a penis, doh-duh-doh" about them.
3. Halter dresses with boob support, botch.
4. A summer of spankings!
5. Ladies like when you order food for the table with the word "stuffed" in it. Ladies do not like you not knowing they do not like to point these food items out and/or order them themselves.
6. A lady always starts a meal with a cocktail before she can bare to look at the dinner menu. AND SNACKS.
7. Ladies like foreign travel, and foreign intrigue.
8. Ladies do not like your ironic pants.
9. An elegant lady always has a strand of real pearls, and can wear a "pearl necklace."
10. No, don't do that. Whatever you're thinking of doing for some "effect" you've identified, just stop.
11. No, seriously. Stop.
12. Drinking before 5 pm is the new black.
13. An educated swarthy man always orders the lady an moderately priced bottle of champers ($100-$60) to not be a show off and to also presume that a lady has had fine things, but might come from less fine things, OKAY?
14. We want to join your stupid band and harmonize up the yin yang.
15. A man told me once "You think differently from anyone I've met, and I love it." Let's examine how this is the right move. 1. He didn't say the typical, "wow, I think you might be smarter than me..." and he didn't compare me to other women, but other people. Re-examine number 9.
16. We want to have sex, like anyone else. But an elegant woman has no problem packing it in at the dinner table. So plan to have an hour ahead of time where you get it on. We'll thank you for it later, before we pass out after a bottle of reasonably priced champers and creme brulee.
17. I once had 3 creme brulees in one week. An elegant woman will present this fact to you without comment.
18. We've seen men, once they get comfortable, jump up and down to show how their items down there can flop up and down. So you don't need to show us again.
19. An elegant woman loses her shit. This is a sign that she has a ferocious heart. It's terrifying. It's crazy. It's hard. It's not fun. It's arousing. It's a woman who can speak her needs. It's right.
20. An elegant lady celebrates the anniversaries of the men she has lost. An elegant woman embraces ritual and magic and love and loss.
