Success

'Allow me.'

You make eye contact through lowered lashes. At the very end of the evening, he approaches and helps you into your coat. He bows stiffly, and is gone. Suddenly, everyone wants to be your friend.


Failure

Not a flicker

You make extensive and elaborate eye contact throughout the evening. The gentleman seems to have noticed you, as have several others. So it is all the more galling when he leaves without a word.
