How Do You Deal With Your Baggage?

November 3, 2009

Baggage.  It’s not a term left for your carry-ons anymore.  Baggage is a term used to describe people with lingering issues.  It can mean any number of things.  It could refer to someone who’s still hung up on an ex after a bitter split.  It could be someone who has an arm growing out of their forehead… From body mutations, emotional asphyxiation, to physical exasperation, baggage is something we all consider before we “get serious” with someone and if one doesn’t then they should.

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?

5 Important Traits of a Good Girlfriend.

October 22, 2009

I have asked some of my guy friends about what they think makes for a good girlfriend/partner in a relationship. Most of the time my friends said sex. That was it. Just sex. Well, I did get a few other nuggets out of them when I pressed for deeper and more meaningful answers.

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…)

Come Talk to Me Already!

July 11, 2009

So lately I have been noticing a trend among my single female friends and acquaintances (myself included).  The common complaint is often that men just don’t seem to approach women as much as we would like. Sometimes we can be into a guy, ready and waiting…..but they just don’t seem to get it.  And girls, well we enjoy being chased, plain and simple. Generally speaking, women want a man that is confident enough in himself to do the approaching. Recently I was at Trader Joes and the guy behind me was flirting with me and making comments like “maybe you can cook me dinner?” I flirted back and we exchanged some stories and cooking tips and I was hoping he would ask for my number….but he never did! This is what perplexes me….. (more…)

Dating Tips & Quips.

June 7, 2009

Shamefully I admit that I was fascinated by the VH1 show “The Pick Up Artist”. Basically some guys who have good game teach several nerdy, socially handicapped guys how to pick up chicks. The show got me thinking that I actually do have a small arsenal of knowledge that helped me to get a lot of dates over the years. I live in Newport Beach but I am definitely not the typical manufactured blonde, fake boobied , size 0, starving model that is native to the region. At first glance I know that I am not what most men are looking for in Orange County. Regardless, I have been able to get dates with all kinds of attractive men over the years. So here are a few tips for you (guys and girls) that might be useful (or might be annoying depending on how you use them). (more…)

I Have a Nice Rack But No One Wants to Touch It: Confessions of a Sexually Starved "Hottie."

May 20, 2009

I have a nice rack. It’s basically a fact. And that rhyme is whiggity wack! Okay all joking aside:  Being in possession of said nice rack from the tender age of 13 I must admit I have misused it from time to time, yes sometimes it can be a crutch and used for the powers of evil!  By evil, of course I mean getting things for free that other less fortunate women not in possession of a nice rack must pay for: Drinks, free oil changes, backstage passes (yes I am serious),  free Starbucks (yes coffee!). Oh the list could go on and actually it does go on. So logic would dictate that if nothing else, my rack would allow me to excel in the dating world and in turn in the hot loving/make out world. It’s really a simple mathematical equation: If B (breasts) then C (copious making out). (more…)

Single Doesn't Have to Suck.

April 28, 2009

I’ll tell you, being 29 and not having been on a real date in over a year could be devastating to some young women. The constant question from my older relatives of “Why don’t you have a boyfriend?” That’s not fun. Being the only single person in attendance when one of my girlfriends has a party -sucks. Everyone around me seems to be getting engaged or married. How many times will I be a bridesmaid? Not fun. (more…)

The Cheapskate.

April 27, 2009

I was out on a date not long ago.  My date and I were going over our dating “battle-files” to see who had the worst experiences, so to speak.  We traded stories back and forth and a common theme that I noticed was that my date had been out on a lot of first dates with guys that were really kind of cheap.  At least in my opinion.  So that brought me to this topic: How cheap is too cheap for the first date?
