Maggie was trying to tell me how I could 'win her heart'. She said she likes a man to be a gentleman.
Then she explained to me exactly what her idea of a gentleman was.
She wanted somebody to take care of her when out, to hold the door open for her in restaurants. She said she would listen to the way I spoke to her and see if I held her hand as we walked down the street.
She gave me a complete outline of the behaviour she expected.
And in doing so, she made sure that only an idiot could get it wrong.
She was making sure I couldn't fail.
