It was kind of a funny situation. A handsome and smart guy came to me, but very modest. He didn’t know how to make friends at all. “What to do, doctor?” he asked me. I told him this anecdote PrivateDelights Orange Count. At another consultation, he came red and embarrassed. “I offered ten times, they didn’t refuse ten times,” he explained.
