This past week, tweeps everywhere crowded into the 92nd Street Y in New York City for the 2010 140 Characters Conference. For two days, people sat rapt, with smartphones and laptops at their sides, while live-tweeting panels on real-time news gathering, social media and education, tweetups and more. Our own Tom Miller—YourTango's General Manager and Tomfoolery blogger—joined author and dating coach Julie Spira to talk about Love, Dating and Romance in the Real-Time Web.
With a staff as small as ours, it stands to reason that pretty much each one of us does the work of about 10 different people. It's no different with General Manager Tom Miller, who—on a constant high somehow unamplified by either caffeine or coke—makes us snort with his daily Tomfoolery posts, giving us just an eensy peep into the male mind; plays movie star in a good number of our web videos; and handles the day-to-day office-type stuff that the rest of us hate. Like, um, paying us so that we can buy new shoes. All that and he still manages to keep that hair of his looking perfect.

No matter how many first date do and don't lists singletons read, some dating mavericks still end up getting sloshed, excoriating an ex or wearing an outfit that says "bed me" instead of "wed me." Glamour asked top relationship writers—our very own Tomfoolery blogger extraordinaire included—to compile a list of 25 hard and fast tips for having a successful first date.
