How Do Men & Women Remember a Relationship?

October 30, 2009

I was out with a female friend of mine not too long ago.  We were talking about relationships and what not.  We took up the topic of the things that we remember about relationships and what meaning we derive from them.  I found this discussion intriguing because, well, I’d never really thought too much about it.  So how do men and women view relationships in retrospect, when all is said and done?

The 8 Minute Dating Experiment Part 2: The Dates

October 29, 2009

As I’d mentioned in my last post I had gone to a speed dating event.  Let me tell you, it was interesting.  It was pretty much what I expected and it tested my ability to strike up conversations with strangers and keep things moving with women that, well, were challenging.  All in all it was a pretty positive experience and I’d do it again, I think.  That said, how did my night go?  Oh and the names have been changed to protect the not so innocent.

What Women (really) Want.

October 26, 2009

I recently read a book about unveiling the mystery of a woman’s soul and I gleaned some good dating tips in the process. Basically the book states that there are 3 things every woman’s soul longs for: to be pursued, to feel beautiful and be part of an adventure. I happen to identify with these desires and I figured I would elaborate a bit on the topic to help the men out a bit. (more…)

The 8 Minute Dating Experiment.

October 23, 2009

MissC had written about her speed dating experiences not too long ago.  It’s something that I’ve been trying to do for a while now but for some reason or other it’s just never happened.  Speed dating was quite the fad and wildly popular around these parts not so long ago.  While this dating mechanism isn’t as popular as it once was, it still draws in a large number of people and there are a number of organizations that still put speed dating events together.  That said, I’m attending one today… How does one prepare for the occassion?

What's the Worst Dating Advice You've Received?

October 21, 2009

Advice.  It’s defined as “a proposal for an appropriate course of action”. I’ve given a lot of advice to people, some I know and some I don’t know.  Some of this advice is pretty good, while other advice I’ve doled out has been pretty damn awful.  Like that time I told Jason Rybka in high school that the sore on Jenny Gardner’s lip was nothing to worry about…  Sorry dude.  Anyway, good advice is sage; something that can surely help you avert disaster.  However, poor advice… Poor advice gets people punched in the baby-maker.  True story.  I’ve seen that TV show, ‘Cheaters,’ and I know what’s up!  By the way, brilliant freaking show.  Right up there with ‘Celebrity Boxing,’ but I digress.  So I was thinking about bad dating advice that I’ve been given over the years.  Man… I either need to stop taking advice from my friends or stop being so naive!!!

5 Topics to Avoid on a Date.

October 16, 2009

Typically, if I’m talking to someone about conversation on a date I’m suggesting topics of conversation. Things that will perk and pique a person’s interest. However, what’s just a critical, if not more so, is the topics that shouldn’t be discussed. They have the potential to mess up your date worse than one Evander Holyfield’s ear after Mike Tyson ate it for a sensible dinner. (more…)
