By Taylor Cast of The Urban Dater First impressions are incredibly important, and even more so when it comes to dating. People make a snap decision when they meet someone if that person is going to be a friend or potential date. Instant decisions are an innate process in us, and most of the time we don’t change our mind. I have met men who in theory are exactly what I want, but they failed to impress, and I lost the urge to pursue dating them.
By Kelly Seal Considering dating someone with kids? Celebrities without children are daring to date single parents these days, at least according to the tabloids. Rocker Matt Bellamy recently started dating single mom Kate Hudson. Brad Pitt became an adoptive father to Angelina Jolie’s oldest son shortly after their relationship took off. And let’s not forget Jake Gyllenhaal’s romance with Reese Witherspoon, single mother of two.
By KB in NYC We all know that dating is a minefield, right? But here’s the thing; getting older doesn’t help. A lot of 40-year-old men only want to date 25-year-olds. And here’s why: a woman in her 30′s or 40′s knows what she wants. She’s been around the block a few times, and she’s less willing to compromise. She’s less easily impressed and she is, in a word, more discerning.
By Roy Sheppard Here in the UK, we are being drenched with Prince William and Kate Middleton stories in the media. They are everywhere! Unlike the loved-up celebrities who can’t wait to show off the latest in a long line of soul mates, what’s different about Prince William and Middleton is their quiet togetherness. They already exude a sense of being an ‘us,’ rather than part of a ‘me + me’ relationship.
By Dating Goddess We know how effective media is in shaping our perspective and even our values, including our self-image. We know that being bombarded with images of beautiful men and women molds our vision of attractiveness. As we mature, we know it’s fantasy, and that even Hollywood beauties don’t look that stunning without professional hair, make-up, wardrobe and lighting.
Drew Barrymore Is Not My Type By David Wygant I get emails all the time asking me, “You live in Hollywood. You must meet famous people, right?” Let me tell you a little bit about the way I think about famous people. I don’t see them; I see dead people. Oops! That’s the wrong movie. That’s from “The Sixth Sense.” I really don’t see famous people. I mean, I do see them, but people have to point them out to me.
By The Single Filez 2010 is drawing to a close, and the new year will soon be upon us. While this is usually exciting for me, I must admit that I’m not looking forward to watching the clock strike midnight this year. Let me explain. You see, I turn 35 next year. If I’m being honest, I’m scared shitless. Thirty bloody five. How on earth did that happen? Luckily, I still feel and (thanks to great genes), look 25. But no matter how young I look, the fact remains the same: next year I will be 35 and still single.
