You are correct, it pays to be observant. I was at a club in Indianapolis during race time. They had a live band. After an hour, two guys stopped me and said,
Guy: “We’ve been watching you.”
Me: “I’m not that kind, sorry.”
Guy: “No. You have danced with every woman here. How do you do it?”
Me: “Oh, the women sitting next to the wall, watching the men, are here to be picked up. The women closer to the floor, watching the dancers, are here to dance. I ask them.”
Before we were married, my wife’s ad on Match said, “Intelligence is important.” Mine said, “Bugs Bunny is my hero.” I still have our first 23 email messages before we met in person.
