Anonymous said: Aunt Betty - You're fabulous. Never change. I'm a "confirmed bachelor" who is looking for the company of another "confirmed bachelor", but I'm very awkward around people I like. With your 60s wisdom, how would you recommend I proceed? How does one flirt? -- Friend of Dorothy
Dear Friend of Dorothy,
I understand you’re trouble. You see a hottie and you’re like hell yeah hell yeah hell yeah but then when you talk to them it’s like hell nah hell nah. But I learned this trick that really works.
Picture your crush shitting.
That’s right, shitting. Everybody Poops™ therefore by picturing a person you like voiding their bowels you are humanizing them in your mind. Because sometimes a person you’re crushing on doesn’t seem like a real person because we hype them up so much in our mind yknow?
Another important thinking to remember is to, and this is going to sound like such dad advice (dadvice) but have fun and be yourself. I sincerely mean that. If you have a positive outlook you will have positive results. You get back from the universe what you put into it so just do you.
So that my advice. Picture them shitting and have fun and be yourself. Hope this helps!
XOXO Aunt Betty
