τῶν παρ᾽ ἐμοί: const. with λιμόν.

εἰ προσφέροις: sc. τὰ παρὰ σεαυτῆς. The omitted apod. is easily supplied from the preceding sentence. So with ἐὰν πείθῃς 15.

ἔπειτα: without δέ, as often in Xenophon. See on i. 2. 1.

ὡς κοσμιωτάτῃ ὁμιλίᾳ: by the most modest demeanor.

τῷ φαίνεσθαι βουλομένη, καὶ διαφεύγουσα: by showing yourself desirous (to please), and yet drawing back. Socrates is ‘giving points’ to a professional coquette. For the nom. of the participles, see on τῷ φανερὸς εἶναι τοιοῦτος ὤν i. 2. 3.

πολὺ διαφέρει: it is far better.
