So obvious, even nine year old Alec Greven knows how to talk to girls…
Says the wise and experienced Greven:
“There’s a girl for every boy. Don’t give up! And don’t think girls are gross. They are girls, what’s wrong with them?
“If she’s walking past you, you could say, “Hey, did you see that episode of…” and say that. Or, if you’re brave enough, you can walk up to the girl and say, “Hi.” If the girl says “Hi” back, then you’re off to a really good start.
“You should give a lot of compliments. But if you give too many compliments, it will look like you’re trying too hard to get the girl to like you. And she’ll think, “Why is this boy giving me so many compliments?” And then she might figure out that you love her – and that’s bad, because your secret is that no one finds out you love her.
“Once you get a girl to like you, you have to keep doing all these things I mention in the book. Like be friendly, be clean, control your hyperness… do all that stuff. And then if you keep going on that, you’ll have success and you can keep her ’till middle school and possibly ’till high school. That’s when you start taking her out to dates and everything. And then – who knows – you can get married!”
