Keep every promise you make and only make promises you can keep.
~ Anthony Hitt
In other words, if you can’t make a promise then just don’t make it at all. Often guys think that in order to keep a woman happy they have to promise her “the world”. But in actual fact, you are more likely to make a woman happy by the promises that you deliver on.
Keeping your word and making promises that you can truly deliver on, is a key relationship skill that will be beneficial during the courting stage and beyond. It’s not a “pick up technique”. It’s a way of conducting yourself when it comes to interacting with the opposite sex and conducting yourself when it comes to your own life.
It comes down to being an honorable man. A man of your word. A man of integrity. A man who follows through on his actions. And, in this day and age (women will greatly appreciate this).
