Romance can be tricky. A wrong move early on and you can get sent to the locker room. The dolls are eager to chime in on what they do and don’t like. Good news for all–it’s as varied as eye color and snowflakes.
Some of the girls claim it’s where he takes her, what he does to show his affection. For others it’s money. The truth hurts. For others it’s a particular body part—eyes, butts, chests, and hair. It runs the gamut. And then there are the girls for whom it’s words. It’s what he says. If he can form beautiful sentences, and says the right things—all bets are off.
So before, you head out for a Saturday night of romance with your sweetie, take in some of the sweetest sentiments ever put to paper. You’re welcome.
