Is that in addition your -- here and there -- so badly needed a second edition of the book is really entertaining and I think you've modernized it in a way for the for the cell -- age and that's our first -- here this is I think media across the -- one of the biggest problems for men and women quite frankly cell phone -- take us through.
Absolutely you know most important of all focus on the person -- with.
Not the machine you know useless bunch in here like this sum -- focused on new.
It put you down and worships the -- he's here Cuban national or waiting for the scores to come in or whatever might really zionist.
Palin declared you're saying those are bad thing to do you know if so what is it you I hope -- -- -- wherever.
Laying out all of her point is that in a romantic situation do aren't really happened I don't hands full hours.
Since then though I'm I'm caught quite often.
Aria and yeah you know any time you're having a conversation with there.
And your phone rings and you go excuse me this is more important than you that's a problem and let them lower on the -- sorry guys that are the better about that clearly were at the bottom of that -- Also you modernize this in a -- talking online dating and there's an etiquette here for people when they're reaching out to try to find somebody -- -- -- online profile that they want.
And you say three strikes in your I don't you know you can contact him once don't your back OK second shot -- but there's a message in that second shot you don't hear back.
Third time you're out stop type stuff contact him and -- -- -- like the third point that it's not necessarily asking for someone's phone number Begin then yours.
That way it's not intrusive and and elect puts the ball -- -- quite sure sure especially.

-- -- confidence another question of etiquette for the modern age is that would more women in the workplace and more women earning money some has more than a guy -- supposed to pay on a date.
It's typically the person does -- asking.
Does the pain that's what we're looking for and it that simplifies the whole process because it's likely a -- jeopardy you know that I'm willing to take on the responsibility.
Let's say even in this even in this age whoever asks does regardless of equality issues and -- By bad guys OK go Dutch still OK to go -- it's mutual and hit just meet online and absolutely.
Especially in that first meeting woman may not want to have campaigned for her and it's you know she would prefer.

Director are great but the real thing what do -- little little air out and in in -- power most.
You know but I don't it doesn't really tried out of as far as approach that actually don't want it like fifteen -- on at the podium right sweaty here is a -- they don't want you to hit on them and that's all the guys just go right that's a great place to meet women absolutely.
But it's after the workout when -- -- now you're draster showered you're looking good.
Now's -- time when you can in nature but when she's working out she doesn't want somebody coming over in erupting her and it's certainly not just want her have been.
Some were hurt -- -- this wedding grunt or a company however -- -- it.
Lots more tips the book is the essential matters for men Peter Post great to see you this morning has -- -- -- -- it just great life.
