3. First of all you have to find someone you want to date, who also wants to date you, who is single, and preferably geographically near you.

There are probably about three datable people in this whole world for you right now.

4. If you meet people through friends there will be an avalanche of gossip with your every move.

Your date's true feelings will be twisted through such a web of Chinese whispers that any information you do get is utterly useless.

"I definitely heard through Nicky that Damien liked that top you wore to Charlie's the other night."


12. How do you know whether the flirting has been successful or not?


Like, if they walk off, that's a good sign it hasn't worked out. But what if they make a really good excuse just before they walk off?


14. So you got their number, and there is a chance that they are at least considering dating you. What the hell are you meant to say to them now?

Do you chit-chat? Do you just go in with the date arrangements straightaway? Is that too business-like? Are dates just business meetings for your genitals?

21. If you drink, then you have to drink until you are maximum charming, without being embarrassing.
