4. Abandon courtship altogether.

Learned from: Shark Attack 3: Megalodon (2002)
Complex says: Never underestimate the power of smooth talk. The most busted-looking, gangly of men can, at the very least, gain a woman’s sustained attention with a few strategically chosen words and a display of engaging conversational skills. She’ll probably still have you buy her a drink and then dip, but that’s better than talking to yourself all day. The flipside of sophisticated chatter is what this dude in the entertainingly bad Shark Attack 3: Megalodon does, which is rashly cut to the chase. In the movie, his line actually works, but we’re talking about a movie in which sharks inexplicably make fart noises here.
