"I think the trouble with Freddie," said the Crumpet, "is that he always gets off to a flying start. He's a good-looking sort of a chap who dances well and can wiggle hs ears, and the girl is dazzled for the moment, and this encourages him." (from Young Men in Spats, by Sir Pelham Wodehouse)
There you have it, fellows - what it takes to get off to a good start with the ladies. I can't help you much with the good-looking part: you are on your own there. But learn how to fox trot and how to wiggle your ears, and you are two-thirds of the way home.
