How to Talk to Girls

The Toronto Star had a very amusing article about a 9 y.o. who has written a book that gives advice about how to talk to girls. I think it is amusing for several reasons, the primary one being that he is 9!

The other main reason is that his advice is nearly functionally equivalent to what people 3-6 times his age say and they have supposedly been thinking about these issues and/or much more 'life experience.' Perhaps those who need such advice just need to think a bit more about what they can deduce and infer from their own life experiences and write down some more personally oriented tips.

"Go for a talkative girl if you are shy. Then you only have to say one sentence, and she will do the rest of the talking."

"If you like a girl, comb your hair and don’t wear sweats."

"Girls win most of the arguments and have most of the power. If you know that now, things might be easier."

(and my fav)
Alec, in Manhattan this week with his mom and publicist, says his favourite piece of advice in the book works for much more than dating.
Life is hard, move on.
"It doesn't just apply to girls – it can apply to everything. Like, if you fall down the stairs – life is hard, move on."
