Psst, guys! Are you having trouble attracting ladies? Debrett, a publisher considered by many to be the last word on traditional British etiquette, may have just what you need: an all-in-one guide to romance from what kind of underwear to choose to what flowers to avoid buying.
The Debrett's Guide for the Modern Gentleman gives you everything from what to say and how to say it, to making your move.
Never mind equal opportunities, old-fashioned chivalry is still alive and well and much appreciated by the fairer sex when making that all important first move.
Holding the door and being prepared to pay for the meal are a given. Giving up your seat isn't necessary for those looking for love - unless you are trying to attract a pregnant or elderly lady. Be warned though; be absolutely certain the woman is pregnant before shooting up out of your seat. These things can easily backfire.

First date rules include drinks or lunch, that way having to avoid wasting an evening if you hate each other. Try to compliment her and come the end, if all's gone well, try to kiss her. Don't try to get her into bed (unless that's what she wants).
