My dear,

Don’t stress yourself about that coffee date (or meeting, whatever you want to call it) of yours. Don’t stress yourself about whether or not you’ll have enough to talk about to not be a bore.

I say this of course because there is a surefire way to keep a man interested for hours (…days, and sometimes even weeks).

Talk to a man about himself and he will listen for hours.

Conversation becoming a bore? Reflect it back to him. Are you actually talking about the weather? Reflect it back to him.

Flattery is the VIP access key that gets you everywhere.

Falsely yours,
Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield
