Introduction by FS:

"I think my real ambition is to pass on to others what I know. It took me a long, long time to learn these things and I don't want these lessons to die with me.

"I believe in giving a woman a lot of time to make up her mind about the guy she wants to spend the rest of her life with. A man just doesn't like being crowded with female claustrophobia.

"I believe the most important thing to look for is a sense of humor. Make her feel appreciated. Make her feel beautiful. If you practice long enough, you will know when you get it right.

"I believe that all women should be treated like I want my wife, daughters, and granddaughters to be treated. I notice that good manners–like standing up when a a woman enters the room, helping a woman on with her coat, letting her enter an elevator first, taking her arm to cross the street–are sometimes considered unnecessary or a throwback. These are habits I could never break, nor would I want to. No woman is offended by politeness.

"Most of all, I believe a simple 'I love you' means more than money. Tell her, 'I will feel a glow just thinking of you'...'your smile so warm and your cheeks so soft,' 'that laugh that wrinkles your nose,' your 'breathless charm,' '...never, ever change.' 'I love you...just the way you look tonight.'"~Frank Sinatra
