There are three kinds of people:
- Those that like you naturally, or who would if they met you.
- Those that like you only while you are performing a mating dance with a steady stream of compliments, gifts, entertainments and undivided attention.
- Those that will never like you, including ones who had a relationship with you in the past and decided they did not like you after all.
For the purposes of finding a suitable partner, studiously ignore anyone in category 2 or 3 no matter how attractive.
