Let's just face it. Every girl has a male friend that she wouldn't mind dating. You start off strictly platonic, then something weird happens along the way … you start to like him. Many women think that the feeling is often one-sided; but it's not.
Even if you don’t know exactly how to define it, everyone understands what a personal vibe is. It is that feeling you get about a person when you meet them, and it often has very little with what is said. For example, you may be naturally drawn to a guy who seems to be high-energy and fun-loving. Likewise, you may be repelled by a guy who comes off as creepy. You may not know exactly why you feel the way you do, but your feelings are undeniable.
Honestly, did you ever think you’d be reading an article about how to get a man? Of course you didn’t! But here you are; and I’m glad you came. Dating is easy… and hard. It’s easy because it’s natural to want a man, relationship, or significant other. However, it is often hard to initiate a conversation or approach a man you may find attractive or interesting.
In honor of National Singles Week, I'd like to throw this out there: Being unattached has some serious perks. My friends and I are all in our early 20s, so we're at varying relationship stages. Some are engaged, some (like myself) are in long-term relationships, some are playing the field and others are living (and loving) the single life.
A strange problem exists that confuses women in the dating scene—sometimes, even though a situation may seem perfect, a man simply will not approach you to have a conversation. He may spend a considerable amount of time watching you. He may even make his way towards the general area you’re hanging out in, but he won’t initiate a conversation. It may lead the woman to wonder if there’s something wrong she’s doing, or if the man is not attracted to her.
As a modern woman, you are now facing an entirely new path to love – one that you can embark upon at any moment, once you realize that it is there. This path has nothing to do with memorizing rules and tricks or obsessing over what's going on in guys' brains. Instead, you can find love by cultivating and exploring your gaggle.
One of the most effective ways to initiate communication and let a guy know you are interested is by flirting with him. Flirting demonstrates your confidence and lets the guy see your intriguing feminine side. However, flirting can backfire or take you in an unintended direction if not done correctly. The following are seven flirting mistakes you should avoid.
When I first saw the trailer for Bravo's new docu-series, "Miss Advised," a reality show about three single love and dating experts, I wondered: How can these beautiful, successful women still be single?
All year long you've placed the foil-lined invitation envelopes with your bare ring finger under a fridge magnet. Now, at last the time is upon you — it's officially wedding season. If all your friends are heading down the aisle this summer, you're going to need a single gal's game plan. Here's a survival guide to get you through feeling happy and fulfilled in spite of all the happily ever after around you.
Seven ideas that treat V-Day not as glorification of romance, but as a celebration of love in general—love for yourself, your friends, your community and for the world. The ideas will even work for those who would prefer to be coupled up. So go forth and revel—no matter what your relationship status is.
With the holidays coming, social gatherings are sure to be on everyone’s agenda. Instead of wasting time explaining to people why you're single at the next party or night out, grab a drink and tell your favorite pushy acquaintance (or family member) that you’re “workin’ on it." Before we begin, I will mention that many tweets ago, YourTango’s very own Tom, created a hashtag on Twitter that said that #songsthatleadtosex were any songs by War or NWA. Now, maybe "Straight Outta Compton" might not work so well, but I’ll say a little "Why Can’t We Be Friends" attitude is encouraged when we talk about drinking, flirting and “becoming friends.”
She walks into a bar and takes a quick appraisal of her surroundings. She’s looking for something very specific. Sure, looks are important but that’s really not what she latches onto. This chick is looking for something beyond a late-night booty call but far less intense than a full-fledged relationship. She longs for the perks of a typical dating romance but is repulsed by the thought of the responsibility that an actual relationship would bring. Tall, dark and handsome aren’t the only monikers that this single gal looks for in a mate.
Listen up, ladies: if you want to get married, you need to stop being a shallow bitch and slut. At least that's what Mad Men writer Tracy McMillan has to say in the Huffington Post this week, and though she's not a relationship expert, she does know a thing or two about finding the one (or not finding the one), as she herself has been married three times.
