Stuck in an airport during Snowpocalypse 2013? Use these flirting tips to meet someone new.
Over the years I've had pretty good luck dating/befriending ladies I sat next to on medium-length flights and think I have a pretty good handle on how you can do it too. Presumably, these tips will work on dudes too.
When sparks fly, it can be tempting to spend the night ... but is it a good idea?
Common wisdom tells us ladies to make men wait for it. You know, monogamy before intercourse and all that jazz. But is it really true that you shouldn't be physically intimate with a man until you're in a committed relationship with him, or is it ever okay to let your hormones lead the way?
One writer explains what being chivalrous looks like, and why it's still so important.
I find chivalry to be a gorgeous thing. Most women I know are a little like that. We love our modern independence in life and in love, but deep down, we love when guys treat us like ladies. As women in their twenties will attest, it's become increasingly rare. Case in point: My friend gushingly told me the other day that a man had been ultra-polite. ("See that guy? He held the door for me ... Like, awwww!") Gentlemanly behavior sets our hearts aflutter. We want to see it, and many of us are waiting on it.
I know. You’re rolling your eyes and going “puhleeeez, Kim, no more tabloid fodder!”, yes? Well, as you know, I’m all about conscious relating and sometimes the attention given to celebrities making really bad mistakes can become excellent teaching points for what NOT to do.
And, this would be the case with the recent news of Kim Kardashian and her “72 day” marriage.

Here’s a question I received from a reader:
"Recently I joined an online dating service. Almost every man states in his profile that he does not want drama! What do guys REALLY mean when they say this?
I think of drama as starting fights, stalking, etc. I think the men are talking about just normal discussions about what is or isn't working, and showing emotion. What's the deal???" - Mary
Great question, Mary. While starting fights and stalking definitely falls under the umbrella of “dating drama,” most men have a broader definition of the term. Unfortunately, your guess that many guys consider “normal discussions about what is or isn’t working, and showing emotion” to be drama is right on… at least in the beginning stages of dating.
Despite her conservative upbringing, one women decides to kiss courtship—not dating—goodbye.
My family wasn't the only one caught up in this idea of courtship. In the wake of the publication of I Kissed Dating Goodbye by Joshua Harris, a whole generation of Christian conservatives were booting modern dating out the door. There were rallies and conferences where we jammed out to Christian music and cheered when a speaker said things like, "Dating is of the devil!" or "No kissing before marriage!" We sighed when we heard stories about a couple sharing their first kiss on their wedding day. We weren't just pledging our virginity, we were pledging to stay away from dating, hand-holding, kissing and the opposite sex. We were pledging to prepare ourselves to be good wives by staying submissive to our parents until the day they handed us over to our husbands.
Ladies, Cosmo did a poll and it appears that 57% of us ladies think it's okay for us to reach into our wallets on the first date? Crazy! Sorry, I think a 57% of us need to allow a man to court us. With recession and pedicures only lasting 2 weeks it's nice to be treated right?
I'm an independent woman and I pay all my bills and everything I want I buy myself but I still don't move a finger when the tab hits the table on the first date. I appreciate when a man courts me and shows me a good time at his expense. If I wanted to go dutch I would hang out with the chicas. On a date? This b---- is getting a free meal and drinks.
What do you ladies think?
