My friend J. Michael gave me some sage advice. Since he’s great looking, a former pro athlete and single in NYC, I figured he’d been in and out of more than a few beds (and heads) in his time. He says his grandfather, (a steel mill workin’, Harley drivin’, huntin’ and fishin’, shot and a beer kinda guy), imparted some priceless wisdom that still holds true today. So here goes, some simple tips for both sexes to incorporate into their dating agenda.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Guys learn this:
Cuddles and compliments. Give her what J. Michael calls “cuddles and compliments.” We know men are visual, and women fall in love more with their ears. So learn to say something positive, like “you look adorable in that” or “I love it when you wear your hair that way.” It’s not hard, and it’s free. Throw in a really nice thing once a week, like leave her a note, pick up wine or flowers on the way over. You’ll thank J. Michael. A lot.
Circulate. Casually dating several girls at once is OK, dating several girls within the same few block radius, zip code or neighborhood is asking for trouble. Her friends, your neighbors or the bartender will rat you out. Or, worst case scenario, you could bump into Natalia when you’re with Fredrika. Not pretty.
Give her a massage. Not a physical massage, but a “ mental massage.” Try using some big words, women are impressed by intellect, not necessarily intelligence. Meaning they don’t want to date an ass, (but they might want to hook up with somebody that has a nice one!). Intellectual stimulation begets intriguing conversation, so an elegant, creative, original rap will wow her. And, don’t forget, making her laugh is the BEST route
to an actual massage.
