1. Never let on how much you like a girl.

2. Always call the shots.

3. Act like wherever you are - that’s the place to be.

4. When ordering food, find out what she wants then order for both of you. It’s a classy move.

5. When it comes to making out, whenever possible, put on side one of Led Zeppelin IV.

That’s all I gotta say so I’ll say it again,
