The Illusion of Technique in Dating

Humans don’t come with an instruction manual – nor should they.

Use technique in all your choices
Dress according to the book
Talk only on approved topics
No departures shall you brook

Be self-conscious in your doings
Until drink takes that away
Only then will you act freely
But unwisely, sad to say

So we follow our techniques and
Go on dates robotically
And then wonder why we’re lonely
Mis-connect neurotically

If you’re going to be with someone
First of all, you have to be;
We can only be ourselves and
Then things happen
Naturally
