The book Latin Love Lessons by journalist Charlotte Higgins shows the relevance of the tips given by the poet, who wrote extensively on woman and love almost 2000 years ago,

Ovid advises men not to go over the top with the boy-beauty regimen.

“Don’t think it’s a good idea to style your hair with curling irons, or depilate your legs with stinging pumice,’ the Daily Mail quoted Ovid, as saying.

For all those who want to attract the ladies, pay utmost attention to personal hygiene.

Similarly, for girls attention to smallest details is equally important.

“I was going to advise you about grim, goaty armpits and rough, bristling hair on your legs,’ Ovid said.

Never give your partner an iota of idea about the efforts that went into your look.

Victory is self-belief and remember that you are victorious once you have imagined yourself to be invincible

Ovid’s emphasis on keeping in touch may pertain to wax tablets and the only difference now is that it is e-mail and text in place of the tablets.

It is essential to keep words simple and do not ornate you messages.

“Use everyday language, familiar yet flattering words, as though you were there, in her presence,” he said.

And don’t reply to any communication immediately. You don’t want to look desperate, do you?

“Write back after a little delay: it always fires up lovers,” says Ovid.

While you pursue a relationship, being chivalrous is important-so make sure you agree to whatever your partner says

Also, remember to compliment your partner’s performance in bed and always tell what turned you on.

Complimenting your partner’s performance in bed goes down well also.

It’s always good to have positive feedback, reckons Ovid. Why not spell out what turned you on.

In case, you have followed the poet’s advice meticulously, there are little chances of failure.

Finally, remember that persistence is very important, exactly like Penelope who waited faithfully for her husband King of Ithaca Odysseus who was fighting the Trojan War. (ANI)
