In any social circle, the man who appears to be the most likeable is the one who has mastered the art of small talk. This sort of man can go on and on and never really say anything of value. Small talk often requires the ability to think on your feet, so as to steer the conversation around to something you know a little bit about; if you find you do not possess the gift of gab, then here is an alternative. Study the Sunday comics in the newspaper, or watch some stand-up comedy on television. Learn what subject matter is considered funniest and discover how to use timing, physicality, and other tropes to your advantage. Soon you will be able to create your own humor to amuse and delight your lady. For example, try grabbing her nose and say “not as you nose-on!” Then, by laughing as loud as you can scream, you will have proven that you are as funny as any established comic, and with original material to boot.
