Books as Romance Strategy

The poet offers a dating tip that will guarantee you have a reason for your next date after the first.

Lending Out Books

You’re always giving, my therapist said.
You have to learn how to take. Whenever
you meet a woman, the first thing you do
is lend her your books. You think she’ll
have to see you again in order to return them.
But what happens is, she doesn’t have the time
to read them, & she’s afraid if she sees you again
you’ll expect her to talk about them, & will
want to lend her even more. So she
cancels the date. You end up losing
a lot of books. You should borrow hers.

I might just do that some day. 😛

    Borrow other people’s books so they’re forced to meet up with you again? LOL. That is indeed a smart joke.

    nylusmilk: the tricky part is to get him to lend you his book. also, you don’t want to borrow a book you won’t like to read! 😛
