Heck, I like Stanley better than Ansom so far.
I'm guessing we're looking at a situation where lines like "the offer to meet in my tent is valid until sunrise" aren't as incredibly inappropriate as they sound out of context - longtime friends, or perhaps a male-dominated culture where Ansom can get away with crappy pickup lines and even expect them to work sometimes.
These are my explanations for why he didn't get smacked with that unrealistically oversized weapon of hers, at least.
