Talking her into it...

You've gotten a lot of good advice already from folks on the list. (well, mostly)

All I'll say is talk to her, don't ask us. If she wants to do it, she will.

This quote was my favorite from all the answers so far:

"6. Try and not be a dick. (I failed on #6 on more than one occasion)."

How true...most of us do try though.

So how about some help.
