Oh, how he wanted success with women! Why did others do so well and he so poorly? All jocks did was breathe and grunt to get chicks, and he did everything possible with no success. Alas, the pangs of desprised love! She was beautiful, wonderful, but only wanted him as a friend. In fact, every girl he held desirous thoughts about thought of him as only a friend or less.
It was time for change! Information was the key, he knew. He devoured books, articles, anything at all about the nature of women and creating romantic success.

Manual said, "Behold, for here is your battleplan:
Psychological Maneuvers! You shall learn Neuro-linguistic programming!

Also ingrained was the mantra, "Thou shall never compromise," and lo and behold! When he broke this rule, he usually crashed and burned. But this time he achieved high flying success. Soon, the rules that had so framed his courtly actions disintegrated.
"Ahh," he realized. "These guides and rules were a clutch for my lack of confidence. They do, however, work but are overall limited." Then he smiled. "The rules and guides are the training wheels, the helper out of the nest."
