215. Guys and Girls

Guys: The color of your belt and shoes should match. Stick with brown or black for everyday wear, go with black for special events.

Girls: When you dress up, set the color theme, then accessorize with a contrasting color.

Guys: Compliment her shoes and her hair, but not in the same sentence. Saying, “Wow,” is not enough; grunting is demeaning.

Girls: Complimenting the small acts of kindness and effort will compel him to do more.

Guys: Treat her like your queen and maybe she will be.

Girls: Treat him like a king and he may pursue that honor.
