There’s something about the description [Great Lover] that I find very distasteful and which I would never want applied to me. There’s something in it that indicates that the man never loved anybody. Anybody who achieves that title, somehow. I wouldn’t want to be on the list. I imagine the guy with the title Great Lover is in the same boat as the guy with the title Poet; he can’t get a date.
