* The Real Deal *

In the movie Phenomenon with John Travolta, his character (George) is sweet on a woman who makes rocking chairs for a living that nobody seems to ever want to buy. She isn't really interested in George and never gives him much of a chance. But regardless he would always try to talk to her when she came into town to drop off her chairs to sell at the various retail stores.

Then one day after their romance was developing, she went to go visit him at his house and found out that he had bought every single one of her chairs that she made. Of course after that, it was over.  

She was all his.

Here's one of my favorite lines from that movie:

Banes: [speaking about George's transformation] He never really changed at all. Isn't that right Doc? I mean he never really got any smarter. Doc?
Doc: Banes... how's your lady love?
Banes: We... um... we broke up.
Doc: Really? That's too bad, yeah. Now George has a love at his side and she is sticking with him. You know why? Because he bought her chairs. That's pretty smart to me. You ever buy Lisa's chairs?

Every woman has her chairs. Every single one of us. Whether that be in the form of her work, her hobbies, her love for the ocean ... children... etc. If you're seriously interested in a woman, really try to find what that key is for her. Most times, we won't come out and say it because we ourselves don't know what "buying our chair" would be until it's put in front of our face by you.

It's different and unique for each lady.

It maybe something as small as finding out her favorite restaurant as a kid because she always had fond memories and surprising her. (Ross did something similar for Rachel on Friends http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUNxA43L9TY&feature=related) Or it could be more intricate and extravagant like helping her make her lifelong dreams come true.

Fellas, you just have to really take the time to find out and make it happen with your own spin. That is, if she's worth it to you.

And ladies, if you find a man like that then... it might just be over. He might just be the real deal for you.
