oldie but a goodie...
This is so you guys out there finally understand the "points" system....
In the world of romance, one single rule applies:
Make the woman happy. Do something she likes, and you get points.
Do something she dislikes and points are subtracted.
IMPORTANT: You don't get any points for doing something she expects.
Sorry, that's the way the game is played.
Here is a guide to the point system:

you might note, after having read subject literature, that we are all doomed unless we somehow master this art they call "listening." As i understand it, the male genus has developed many tricks, if you will, to 'score' points in this category. Take for example the simple "uh-huh." At the surface it may seem without merit, but when used with precision and strategem it can be of insurmountable value. It is b/c of its very simplicity that one can actually carry on with daydreaming while "listening." Secondly we look at the maneuver commonly known as the periodical diversionary tactic or PDT whereby the victim is to actually focus on the conversation for a time that is as short as possible so as to be able to formulate a cohesive phrase that acts as a sort of diversion from the fact that you may not actually be tuned in. This in turn will allow a substantial break from any actual "listening," and may even permit some momentary action such as "watching tv." Definately more complex, but the pay-off is greater in proportion.
