She’ll write about how you never bought her flowers. She’ll say in well-constructed prose how the whole time you were together, she never came home from a long week to see a vase full of roses, or daises, or anything.

Seuss and you haven't read a book since graduating, it's better to be upfront about it than to name-drop something cooler or more esoteric.If there is no book, then choose a recently published poem, short story, essay, or tweet. Then, slowly, shake the Writer’s hand, smile, look up (either beaming or awed) into the writer’s face, and toss off this line. (This would make you a fan, not a love interest.) Step away.

If you break down and call/text, you are Interrupting the Writer.If you become part of a writer's life, you may very well end up in their work.This means they like you and they think about you a lot.Some writers might end it there, because some writers are unfair like that, but that's better than giving them a false sense of who you are — bookwise.
