How to Get a Date
=================
by the Jabberwock <PM107>
submitted by JRP

First locate your target. Your best chance of doing this is by going
to one of those wild parties which result in pairs of bodies being strewn
all over the stairs within a couple of hours of starting. However, since
I never get invited to that sort of party, Im blowed if I can see why I
should help those of you who do. So I wont. So there.

Having located your target, the next step is to find out where said
target lives. This is easily done by following her/him until you reach a
door which they go in and lock. This will either be their room or the
bathroom, and if you cant tell the difference then youre beyond hope.

Next you need to establish contact. Knock on the targets door, and
so-and-so upstairs, but he/she/it isnt in. Can I borrow a pen and paper
to leave a note please? Having borrowed this, make sure that you leave
something behind when you go. This means that you can go back and
collect it sometime.

DANGER SIGNS: A wedding or engagement ring.
A photo of a stunning individual by the bed.
The presence of a stunning individual in the bed.
A very rapid ushering out of the room.
Phrases such as, Get lost, you pervert!

A return visit armed with red rose.

As you can see, there are more danger signs than good signs, so if at
first you dont succeed, dont worry…there are plenty more toads in the
bog! A good strategy is ending up on the doorstep looking very pathetic,
which can get you invited in for a coffee so you can work on your chat-up
lines. One line you should never use if you want to leave their room
with the same number of limbs as you went in with is, Do you come here
often? It is the targets room after all.

HAPPY HUNTING!!!

Lovers Quiz #2
===============
by Jazzman

A questionnaire to test your Valentines Day eligibility. Section One is
for women, Section Two for men.

Section One (Women):

1. When on a date, I like to go:
A) to a quiet dinner, a movie, and then straight home (+5)
B) to Burger King, to a drive-in, then to his place for
a few drinks (+10)
C) anywhere that no one can see or hear what we do (+15)

2. When I get into the car on a date, I sit:
A) across the seat, more or less melting into the door (-5)
B) next to my date (+10)
C) on my dates lap (+15)

3. When my date tries to put his arm around me, I:
A) firmly remove his arm and tell him that Im not that
kind of girl (-5)
B) move cautiously closer to him (+5)
C) consider this only the beginning of a long, fun-filled
evening (+15)

4. When I kiss on a Valentines date, I:
A) do not kiss on Valentines dates (-5)
B) kiss goodnight at my door (no tongues) (+0)
C) consider this only the beginning of a long,
fun-filled evening (+15)

5. If asked out for a second date after Valentines, I:
A) blush, ask him to call me later, and call home
to ask permission from my mom (-10)
B) consider his motives and accept if I find them
within the realm of my morals (+10)
C) consider his performance and accept if he
played three or more encores (+20)

Scoring for Women:

-20 TO 10 POINTS: Oh please. You couldnt get a date if you paid for
one. You should consider interspecies dates as your
only available option for romance.

15 TO 65 POINTS: Youre interested in men but are either too shy or
emotionally unstable. A Valentines date for you is a
horror of hand-slapping and cautious drink-sipping.
Relax. Its just an innocent date. Trust me!

70 TO 105 POINTS: Yah! Love ya! You consider nylons and garter belts
kinky but dont think twice about wearing black
leather, rubber clothing, or whipping your chained
partner into submission. Theres nothing I could teach

Section Two (Men):

1. When on a date, I like to go:
A) to a quiet dinner, a PG movie, and have her home by 11 (-5)
B) out for a beer and then back to my place and pass out together (+5)
C) back to my place for erotic fun (+15)

2. When I pick her up, I:
A) remind her to fasten her seatbelt (-10)
B) make conversation by inquiring about her class schedule (+5)
C) remove the beer cans from under her feet and attack
her while telling her how much I respect her (+15)

3. My dates usually say:
A) Have you ever done this before? (-10)
B) Wake up, dammit! Im not through yet! (-5)
C) Lets try one more time and make it an even dozen! (+20)

4. When I kiss my Valentines date, I:
A) dont try to kiss my date, I dont wish to compromise her integrity
or give her the wrong impression of my motives (-10)
B) kiss her goodnight and tell her what a great time I
had (even if I didnt) (+5)
C) seldom stop until Ive reached her ankles (+15)

5. When I ask her for date following Valentines, I:
A) respect her desire to contemplate our relationship
and agree to call her after she has had an opportunity
to consider her position and make a responsible decision (-5)
B) wonder what Im going to get on the next date if she
kissed on the first one (+5)
C) ask her during breakfast in bed (+15)

Scoring for Men:

-25 TO 10 POINTS: Youre too old-fashioned for the women of the 80s.
Sex is a mystery to you and you bore the hell out of
your mother. Do yourself and the world a favor: commit
yourself to Depo-Provera treatments and become an
accountant.
15 TO 65 POINTS: You enjoy women but havnt quite figured out what
any woman could possibly see in you. Good point. Its
not hopeless, however, with a little work and effort,
you too could soon be on your way to successful
dating.
65 TO 100 POINTS: Youre a man of the world who is well versed in the
art of give and take. You know what a woman wants and
youre not afraid to give it to her. You lead a hard
and arduous life trying to satisfy the many women
around you. Youll make an excellent Valentine date
for any mature woman.
