For thousands of years, men have tried to understand the rules when dealing with women.
Finally, this merit/demerit guide will help you to understand just how it works.
Remember, 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.
- You don't get any points for doing something she expects.
Sorry, that's the way the game is played.
