And this incredibly annoying advice that completely plays into gender roles:
Allow me to translate:
Women! Uncross those arms! Only the manly men are allowed to tuck their hands into their sides!
Women! If you don’t turn toward your date, he won’t know you are interested! This implies that 1)men are not responsible for assuring their dates they are interested or 2) guys always turn their shoulders toward women when they talk.
Women! If you talk to much to your lady friends, how is the guy ever supposed to know you like him?
Women! Don’t forget that you must smile because that’s your job!
Women! Be sure to touch him a lot.
Men! Nothing ain’t going to happen unless you take the lead.
Men! Did you hear us about taking the lead? No? Well we are saying it again so you hear it this time.
Men! We only had two things for you to do so we will say something inane about texting here to kind of even the advice out.
The thing is, this is all good advice for both genders. I don’t see why it has to specify one over the other.
