Animals mate, the female is persuaded -- and without the artifice of billets-doux and flowers.
Of course, a young lady is not of the animal kingdom. Although a young man is. Man is a beast, made in the image of God though he may be. Curious that the human male and female should be so different, when in the majority of species the sexes are almost indistinguishable. Two modest, brown creatures, scurrying together into earthen tunnels, drawn wordlessly into the dark.
