Why I love Miss Manners, #134 in a series

Seriously, I love Miss Manners. She's so sly and snarky!

Dear Miss Manners:

I seem to be at the very beginning of what might be a romance, having gone on two fun and innocent dates. I know that you encourage a period of "friendship" before plunging in. Would it ruin the illusion of just being friends to give a handmade valentine card?

Miss Manners responds:

Leaving aside the notion of "plunging in," which Miss Manners would prefer not to think about, she may well have suggested the friendship approach to romance. Not that she really expected anyone to listen. ... [etc]
