shakespeare’s dating tips:
- use romantic metaphors and beautiful rhymes on your girl until she’s yours
- dress up as a guy, befriend your man and ask him what he thinks about you
- kill her cousin, then yourself (because you love her so much)
- don’t be mean to your girl or she might drown herself in a river. be nice
One of the most important things we can take away from Shakespeare’s corpus is that if you don’t want things to end in a pile of bodies, dress in drag, NOW.
