I have been with my wife for 35 years and feel I can give some advice to the singles in the lower mainland that will help. Before you consider me a relic remember that I was young just like you once so my experience is valuable. I met my wife at a $1.49 sale at Woodward's. To get her attention I smiled at her and made eye contact. This is a mistake a lot of young people make. You can't get the attention of a woman without smiling sincerely and woman know when you are not sincere. I was also dressed very well. My mother/sister had ironed by shirt and it was very crisp and clean and my shoes were shined. I think this is what caught her eye. A young man with an ironed shirt and shiny shoes is a winner. I see so many young people nowadays wearing baggy clothes. How can you meet someone if you look like you can't take care of yourself? You need to be ready in case you meet your potential wife/husband. You never know where you will meet them. My brother met his wife at the PNE next to a dairy cow in the farming exhibition. Once she saw me smile and my obvious interest I went right up to her and expressed my pure intentions. After a bit of hesitation and approval from one of her friends she gave me her telephone number. I understand this was a long time ago but we're not reinventing the wheel. Technology may have changed but at the end of the day its you and a woman. Doesn't matter if it was 30 years ago or 100 years ago. I hope this advice helps someone find the love of their life.
