How can I teach my son to "get the girl"

Most mothers don´t teach their sons how to get the girl, and this is information that so many men when I teach them as adults, they go why didn´t somebody tell me this when I was a teenager is that girls and boys are different. We have a different hormonal system. And for girls, they bond when you do little things, when you write little cards, when you write little notes and the most important thing to teach your son is ask her more questions. You don´t have to come up with things to say. Boys are often quite awkward. They don´t know what to say. They have nothing to say. They just need to ask questions. Tell me about this. Where did you go? Tell me more about that. I really want to understand this. These are the kinds of phrases a mother can teach a son and he can win all the girls. He will be the center of attention if he becomes a good listener, and when he has a special girlfriend, to do little extra things for her and offer to do things, just a little extra, a little bit more than usual. That´s the secret, and it makes her feel special and gradually begins to open up.
