    The purpose of having an amorous reservedness is not to keep others at miles away from yourself, but rather to keep him always chasing and courting, and also to leave for yourself a route for retreat (or some space). He will not ignore you because of this; this will make him become more respectful towards you. Being liked by others is not difficult, but becoming respected by others needs some effort.

    In the new film "Corpse: The new battling soldier", Zhou Xiuna plays the character of a young and inexperienced (revived) female corpse, who developed an amorous lesbian relationship with Jiang Luxia. Thanks to the superficial description of this relationship, the spicy intimacy scenes are completely absent.
