How to Escape A Bad Date

We have all been there and we have all had that awkward moment looking at our phones and the door wishing you were going through it at that exact moment and saying goodbye to this person and never seeing them ever again in your life. I am talking about the worst date ever! I was recently on a date that mirrored this exact situation and I was praying that my phone would ring and I could tell anyone even a telemarketer that they have saved me from this person and I would love them forever if they just stayed on the phone with me while I went through the spiel of the "family emergency&

No Matter What Do Not Contact Him First!

You are out with your friends and you meet a guy and of course you give him your phone number and he gives you his. Now, with this day and age of texting, LinkedIn, and Facebook it is hard to imagine a guy taking more than a day to contact you, but be patient! Do not under any circumstances contact him FIRST! Men like to have the upper hand no matter what the relationship books tells you on how it's ok for women to contact men don't do it!

The Rules Of Playing Matchmaker For Your Friends

Matchmaking is an old practice. On the frontier, because farms were far apart and it was hard to meet other eligible singles, families used dances to set up their children. In medieval times, Catholic clergymen and Jewish rabbis played Cupid within their communities.

Know When to Walk Away

I know there is no specific code for this and some women's intuition is better than others, but I am going to give some tips. In the past it was taboo for women to approach men while they are out with their girls. But now more often than not it seems women have been mustering up their confidence to talk to a guy they find attractive. So, how do you know when it's time to walk away? Well, if he is not giving you eye contact and looking around is one good sign.

An Askew View of A Relationship or Lack There Of

The past few months I have been giving advice to a friend about his relationship with his girlfriend. Or should I say his "friend". He thought she was his girlfriend, unfortunately she never got that memo or he never got the memo she wasn't interested in a long term affair. I found out through the wonderful world of Facebook that she was with, (shocker) another guy friend of mine. And of course that guy friend of mine was someone I knew pretty well. He is the type that gets what he wants, he doesn't wait around for anyone.

5 Rules For Choosing Your Online Dating Photos

In online dating, making a good first impression is key. People can easily pass over your profile with the blink of an eye if they don't immediately see something they like. A recent study actually confirmed that men are extremely visual, looking mostly at the photos and less at the profile, making it even more important for women to choose wisely.

Cyber Cops from Hell

by Julie Robinson   Dare I say it? I’ve been having some trouble with the police recently. No, I’m not getting pulled over for public nudity / speeding while intoxicated / cooking meth in a two-liter jug in the backseat of my Nissan crossover. No. The cops I’m talking about are those fucking annoying Craigslist self-appointed cyber cops who willy-nilly delete the, albeit, quasi-legitimate advertisements I post on Craigslist a regular basis trying to promote my totally legit business. Whew!

Do You Follow These 4 Relationship Rules?

End your pattern by becoming aware. Uber aware. Know what triggers your pattern (e.g., what tips off that nightly conversation) so you can stop the cycle before it starts running without your permission. Then decide how you want to act instead. What's your ideal state if your pattern didn't exist? Consciously replace your patterned response with an action that matches how you want things to look.

Follow these Rules for a Good Relationship

How many relationship rules have you heard in your life? Too many to count, I’d bet. “Wait three days before calling.” “Laugh at his jokes and act very interested.” “Tell him you have plans (even when you don’t) and act disinterested.” “Don’t drink too much, talk about your ex, or have sex on the first date.” The underlying message in all of these rules is “ignore what you want and who you really are and play a role that’s not really you.”
