We are SO efficient that we do not need any more time then that!

Oh, this is funny! I'm what anyone would call a low-maintenance woman. I tell hubby, "Please let me know 20 minutes before you want to leave." He will still say "OK, let's go at 6". OK. Then at 5:30 he'll ask if I'm ready yet. I look at him and swear. Hey, I'm LOW MAINTENANCE NOT none at all! Even I have teeth and hair and clean clothes!

Be yourself. Be sincere. Don't try too hard or shower her with flattery, but take time to observe what is special and unique about her - you'll figure out how to let her know that you like her. Strive for happiness in your heart - it will shine outward and we will notice! These are good general rules for relating to ALL people, not just a romantic interest. It's so hard to say what will impress women in general across the board - my gosh, we're all SO different! There's no real magic formula that works on ALL women, so don't try too hard to try to figure "us" out - we're not a mathematical equation. (bowling shirt said it simply and effectively - I guess I am babbling...)
