From The Original Fascinating Womanhood Pamphlets, page 175:
"If you wish to interest him, therefore, it is not necessary that you understand everything he says and does, it is only necessary that you manifestly understand and appreciate his manliness or manhood. To be interesting to all men, a woman need merely acquire the habit of discovering and appreciating the manliness in every man she meets.
"If you will once get the habit of looking for the ideal masculinity in the men you meet, you will not find any of them uninteresting. You will welcome the most tedious monologue as giving you an opportunity to observe the man's character and to ferret out his admirable qualities. You will develop into a most appreciative listener and will invite unconsciously, almost, the confidence of almost every man with whom you converse."
When you give a man a compliment, remember, you must be truthful and sincere as well as 100% free of a desire to manipulate him. If you are not free of a desire to manipulate, please work on your character first.
Assignment for Single Women without a Suitor: Listen to an unmarried man in whom you have an interest to discover some special knowledge he possesses and give him a compliment about the knowledge. Be casual about the compliment, be specific, and avoid gushing.
Assignment for Single Women with a Suitor: Listen to your suitor as he discusses some masculine aspect of his life. Make an admiring remark about this masculine trait or knowledge he possesses. Be casual about the compliment, be specific, and avoid gushing.
Assignment for Married Women: For you married ladies, only one "him" exists: your husband. Therefore, the assignment for you is to listen to your husband as he talks about his life: family concerns, work, accomplishments. Look at him as though you are gazing into his soul. Then, you can tell him how very much you admire his masculine trait of ______ (whatever it is) and give him a kiss after giving the compliment.
I hope that my little "woman-to-woman" ideas and assignments help. Take 'em or leave 'em, your choice.
