When a guy courts a woman on his best behavior, he’s running for office.
After she agrees to start seeing him, he’s secured the nomination.
After he suggests sitting home and watching a movie in lieu of going out, he’s begun easing off of his earlier campaign rhetoric. (He’s also moved to the center… of the couch.)
As for moving in together, that’s when he’s elected.
Finally, in order to get things accomplished, he compromises.
I’m Andy Cowan, and I approve this message.
