What is Romance

No Comment - Post a comment

Everyone knows that part of dating is romance, maybe I am easy to please, but I think have known some pretty romantic men in my hay day. I would love to hear about some of your most romantic experiences. Below, I have listed some of my most romantic experiences to help start things off. Please write to me at jp@international-internet-dating.com and tell me about your most romantic date.

I was once flown to Chicago for a first date that included dinner at the Chicago Chop House, and a trip to Navy Pier. I thought that was very romantic.

I was taken to New York for New Years Eve in Time Square. That trip included dinner at ‘Windows of the World’, which was, of course, before 911. That romantic date will be a special memory that I will always treasure.

I was flown, on a private plane, to Key West for Fantasy Fest. This trip included a stay at the Pier House Resort penthouse, which was incredibly fun, and romantic.

I was treated to a prime rib dinner for two at Bern’s Steak House in Tampa, Florida, which included a tour of the restaurant. The evening was topped off with a special bottle of wine and desert in their famed desert room.

There are more romantic memories, many more, but the memories have faded over time. There are some memories that will never fade; one in particular. I think that the most romantic thing that anyone has ever done for me was when a particular someone left a CD, that was special to both of us, with a single red rose on my doorstep. The doorbell rang and when I went to answer it I found my special presents laying there, my heart melted, and all the other romantic things that ever came before diminished in comparison.

The most romantic things to me are the little things, things that have a shared meaning, things that are intimate, and personal. Those are the memories that shine the brightest, and I will cherish them forever; maybe I am just easy to please, or just maybe I recognize what truly comes from the heart.

How to Pick the Right Free Dating Website in Canada

3 comments - Post a comment

It seems like everyone these days is starting a free dating website. Anyone with access to the right tools and knowledge can, and will, start one of these up from just about anywhere. Is there a way for singles in Canada to tell the real deal from the duds just by looking? How do you know what type of sites to avoid, and which to sign up for?

It doesn't take much to start up a free dating website anymore. What does take a lot of work, however, is creating a high quality website that works effectively and provides good service to customers. Luckily, it's usually the effective sites that are successful, and survive. But, how do you differentiate the successful start up websites from the doomed ones? More importantly, how do you, and other Canadians, protect yourself from “free dating” scams?

The first signs to watch out for have to do with the quality of the website. You can usually tell the difference between high and low quality free dating sites just by looking at them. Even though free dating websites in Canada don't make money from their members, good ones can still find lots of ways to generate income. Lots of income. So looking at the quality of the images, the layout, and so forth can give you a good indication of which sites in Canada are doing well and making money. Web pages that look sloppy, messy, or poor quality usually indicate that people haven't spent enough time, effort or funds on making their website look as good as it could. The visual presentation is so important to a website, and is the face of the entire company. If a free dating websites isn't putting any effort into improving the face of their site, just imagine the other, less visible areas that they might also slacking off.

Another good indicator of which sites to choose are the number of other people who are already members. Chances are, more people will be willing to sign up for a free dating website that they know works, either from their own experience with the site or from word of mouth. Also, people aren't likely to stick around with a site if the service isn't working for them, or if they are dissatisfied customers. On top of all this, the more members a website has, the greater chance you'll have of finding someone you're attracted to from Canada. In the end, whether a free dating website works for you is dependent on a number of factors, including your own personal tastes and needs. But, to give yourself a good head start finding a good quality site, with proven results and a positive history could give you an added edge and a more enjoyable free dating experience.

What Women Really Mean When They Say They Want A "Nice Guy"

No Comment - Post a comment

If you spend any time reading the profiles on Match.com or any of the other online dating sites, you'll see a lot of women who say they just want to meet "a nice guy."

Furthermore, if you talk to women about relationships often you'll hear, "I'm tired of dating all these jerks. I just want to meet a nice guy."

Guys read and hear this, so when they meet a woman, they act like a "nice guy." They're sweet, respectful, give her compliments, gifts a peck on the cheek--and they never see her again.

What's her reason? She'll say, "he was a really nice guy, but there was no chemistry there." Remarkably enough, this is the same woman who says, "I just want to meet a nice guy."

What's the disconnect, what's going on here? Why do women say they want to meet nice guys, but when they do meet one they don't want to see him again because there's no "chemistry?"

The answer has to do with what we as men think a nice guy is, and what women really mean when they say a "nice guy."

We think of a "nice guy" as a guy who's meek, mild, unoffensive, humble, a guy who compliments women, buys them gifts, lets them make all the decisions, wants her to "just be happy," and is very careful to do nothing to offend her.

Women think of a nice guy as a guy who makes them feel like they feel when they're around the jerkiest of jerks, but doesn't come with the baggage and negative behaviors the jerks always come with.

Here's what women want when they say they want to meet a "nice guy:" a man with a strong sense of personal authority, with a naughty, fun, playful side, who genuinely likes women. While he engages in "naughty behavior" he doesn't do the things jerks do: lying, abusing, freeloading, etc.

In other words the "nice guy" women want makes them feel like she's with a jerk without the bad behaviors the jerk brings. So next time you hear or read a woman say, "I just want to meet a nice guy," you'll know what she really means--and it has nothing to do with how men define a nice guy.

How to Get Girls With Bad Boy Attitude, and Nice Guy Style

1 comments - Post a comment

It's a classic topic of conversation for guys: What kind of men do women want, nice guys or bad boys? An interesting statistic tells us just what kind of personality women want in men. A survey by TopDatingTips.com found that 38% of women prefer nice guys, 15% prefer bad guys, and 34% prefer a blend of both.

Did you hear that last number? A good 1/3 of women don't want guys who are 100% good or 100% bad. 34% want a guy who's got a little good, and a little bad, in him. The good part in him makes him treat her well and shower her with affection; the bad part in him makes him exciting, dangerous, and powerful. Fortunately, mixing some bad parts with your good side isn't that difficult. It requires positive changes that will change the way you look, feel, and talk to women.

You don't have to be a bad boy to get girls. You just have to bring bad boy attitude. The five ways to do this are:

Get physical
Make her feel safe
Play on her wild side
Don't let anyone walk over you
Develop ATTITUDE

Nice guys can learn a few things from bastards. The reason many women shy away from guys who seem too nice is that they don't want a guy who'll be submissive, clingy, and dependent. They don't want a guy they can walk all over. Nice guys often treat a woman with such politeness that she can't imagine him ravaging her on her office desk. Nodding patiently, going out of your way to impress them, backing off when someone treats you inappropriately: these are the things most girls just can't stand. You're acting like you're less than them, and there's just no challenge there.

Remember, you NEVER want to give women higher status than you. The reason women always go for "bad guys" is because they project superior qualities women yearn for: confidence, adventure, popularity. Unfortunately, nice guys just don't convey those things that girls fantasize about.

But nice guys CAN be similar enough to bad boys to get the women they want. Let's look at each method of bringing in "bad boy attitude"...

1. Get physical. If you tell a woman that you do Tae Kwon Do, have a black belt in karate, or have reformed from your previous life as an amateur rugby player, she's going to immediately assume that you're the kind of guy who could protect her in an emergency. Now, if you're a 135-lb geek with spaghetti arms, she may not believe you, so I recommend that you actually get some martial arts or self defense training. Kick some ass on the football field. Join a gym and get pumped up. Show the woman that you're a warrior, and she'd better believe it, or you'll just move on to the next girl.

2. Make her feel safe. By doing the little things for her, like walking on the part of the sidewalk between her and the street, or keeping an eye open for anything potentially dangerous, or standing up for her immediately when anyone attacks her verbally or physically, she'll learn to TRUST that you, indeed, have a bad guy within you ready to stand up for her and defend her if necessary. Be the guy who straps her in her seatbelt on the roller coaster, or who offers a hand so that she doesn't trip. Trust is built upon these actions.

3. Play on her wild side. As I said before, being successful with babes takes the kind of attitude that isn't afraid of risks. If you're always concerned about being politically correct, perfectly polite, and the kind of gentleman she'd introduce to her folks, you'll see girls slip through your fingers time and time again. Be a little outrageous. Flirt with her shamelessly. Let her know that you find her sexually attractive. Drop hints that will intrigue her. Say something risqué, and grin when her mouth drops. They may act shocked, even offended, but believe me: they LOVE it when you tease.

4. Don't let anyone walk over you. You're going to find yourself in confrontational situations from time to time, with everyone watching. Stand up for yourself. Make it clear that you won't put up with that kind of treatment-even from a woman. No one has the right to talk to you in an aggressively confrontational way, lay hands on you, or threaten you. Even though your immediate instinct may be to back down to avoid a scene, quash it. Scenes draw attention, and there are always going to be women in the crowd watching whom you can impress by the way you handle the situation.

5. Develop attitude. I just can't emphasize enough how crucial having a winning, confident attitude is. You don't care what others say. You don't care what others think. No matter how a woman reacts, it just blows right over you. That's because you're always in control. No woman-whether beautiful, popular, or rich-has power over you. You don't need anyone, you're not dependent on anyone, and you don't have to cling to anyone. Got it? Good.

So give these methods a try. Work out. Act like her protector. Stand up for yourself. And develop that attitude that says you've got the power to do whatever you want. You'll be irresistible in no time!

Any Truth To "Subliminal Seduction?"

No Comment - Post a comment

When I was in junior high, my best friend at the time (Kyle McMenamy--wonder what ever happened to him?), showed up with a book he thought was the most amazing thing he'd ever read. It was entitled, "Subliminal Seduction" and it went on to describe how advertisers deliberately placed "subliminal images" in their ads that literally hypnotized people into buying.

The author (who I'm too lazy to look up) "proved" how a plate of fried clams was actually full of pictures of people having an orgy, how a beer commercial really was driven by images of oral fun, and all kinds of other exciting stories. Of course as junior high kids we ate it all up, and went around hunting for "subliminal seduction images" wherever we could find them. It was a lot of fun, but the only image I could ever see was the naked guy on the box of camel cigarettes. Supposedly there was a naked woman too, but I could never see that one, no matter how many different ways I looked.

Ahhhh, how I wish all of that stuff was true!

Why am I telling you all this? Here's why: I get questions every now and then from guys who want my opinions on "psychic ways to meet women," "relationships as energy," and "magick." Personally, I have no problem with any of those things with one exception: they just don't produce anywhere near the seduction results of actually talking with a woman.

Now, I've had some experiences that could only be termed "energetic" and I hope to have more. But none of these things are anywhere near as effective as doing the tried and true seduction techniques that get women to approach you, and these things all involve, at some level, interacting with a live woman.

Being a fun, unpredictable, naughty boy who she never knows what you're going to say or do next is a bazillion times more effective than any "psychic" or "energetic" method I've heard of. Running a well written profile on the online dating services will get more women to approach you than any "ritual" you can perform. Becoming a dynamic public speaker may not give you psychic abilities, but it'll dang sure get women to fight over you. When it comes to the seduction of desireable women, demonstrating authority never seems to fail.

My point is this: there are a certain set of male behaviors that get results with women, and outside of that, the efficiency of everything else is so low as to be non-existent. I think "energy" and "psychic senses" and "clairvoyance" are pretty dang cool, but I put them in the same category as "subliminal seduction." A lot of fun, but that's it.

If you want to be successful with women, just stick to the narrow set of behaviors that's been proven to work, and avoid everything else. When you think about it like that, it's actually kind of boring, but the seduction results sure ain't. To use a football analogy, it's like the difference between a "good loss" and an "ugly win." I'll take the ugly win 100% of the time.

Are Free Dating Websites in Canada Better Than Pay Sites?

6 comments - Post a comment

The debate continues with whether free dating websites in Canada are better than pay dating websites. While there are pros and cons to each, it's ultimately up to each individual person to decide which type of dating service is best suited to them. So, as we weigh the advantages and disadvantages, decide which are worth taking seriously, and which are more important to you.

The first and most obvious advantage of free dating websites in Canada is the cost. In addition to avoiding the need to spend money by signing up for one of these free dating websites, there's no need to disclose your credit card information. For people who are concerned about giving such sensitive personal information to an unknown company, this can certainly help improve the likelihood of creating an account.

There are some who may argue that having to pay for dating sites increases the quantity and quality of the members who belong to pay dating websites. This, however, is not always the case. Free sites encourage a wider range of members to sign up, from all walks of life, and all financial backgrounds. Although people who speak for pay dating sites believe that financial status is an indicator of a personals “quality”, this is not necessarily true in the least. Furthermore, free sites are open to all people, which can lead to greater numbers of members in Canada, and greater diversity.

Supporters of pay dating websites in Canada also argue that free dating websites are open to spammers, since you don't need a credit card to sign up. As the online dating industry adapts and improves, however, more privacy and security features are at the disposal of those who run them. Credit cards don't necessarily guarantee security, and spammers can still find their way onto pay sites. Also, as mentioned before, since there's no need to disclose credit card information, the chances of credit card fraud are practically eliminated. Finally, for those who are unsure about online dating websites in Canada, and how to begin, free dating sites are an enjoyable way to take the first steps into meeting people over the internet.

Dating Advice: Don't Sabotage a Special Relationship

No Comment - Post a comment

You're dating a new guy, and you're crazy about him. You're feeling vulnerable, you definitely don't want to get hurt, so you call a few friends to analyze things he's said to get their perspective. Is this a good idea?

Not really.

While it's tempting to give friends an I-said-he-said account of your conversations with a new love, it's a big mistake. You destroy whatever intimacy that developed. If you want a special relationship, keep it special by keeping it between the two people it involves: Him and you.

(Discount this advice if this man has ever hit you or threatened you in any way. In that case, RUN FOR THE HILLS. Dial 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) for help!).

As for a normal new boyfriend, your friends do not know him any better than you do (unless they're his sisters, in which case you should definitely keep quiet about him).

Do not invite other people to speculate about your relationship. It's not their place, and it's none of their business. Trust yourself to make the right decision about whether or not he is the one for you.

Avoid asking questions like, "Do you think he likes me?" and "What do you think it meant when he...?" Use a man's actions to gauge his feelings for you. If you don't understand something he did or said, ask him about it. For instance, "You asked me to meet you at 6:30, but you didn't show up until 7:15. Was there a lot of traffic?"

See what he has to say for himself. Does he seem genuinely sorry, or does he pull the same stunt the next time? Respond accordingly.

Acknowledge your own feelings, always: Do you feel good around him? Confident? Attractive? Or do you feel insecure? Stupid? Fat and ugly? You know how you feel around someone who likes you, so seek your own counsel.

When you discuss your relationship with other people, you cheapen it. You undermine it, too, because you've made it subject to others' opinions. You've raised the stakes because if the relationship tanks, you might as well have taken out an ad in the New York Times.

Give your new relationship the dignity it deserves and keep it to yourself. Offer it care and attention. Trust yourself to let it develop as it should. If it's meant to be, you'll know it.

If it's not, you'll know it,too.

Honeymoon In Las Vegas

2 comments - Post a comment

Choosing an ideal place for your honeymoon is one of the best parts of planning a wedding. For couples planning a Las Vegas wedding the post is even sweeter because not only is Las Vegas “The Wedding Capital” it is an ideal spot for honeymooners.

If you are like the many couples who decided on a Las Vegas wedding, you can follow in their foot steps and choose from the multitude of activities available to you and your new spouse.

Las Vegas may be famous for its casinos but it is also a great place for honeymooners. While in the research phase of your Las Vegas wedding planning you most likely searched for Las Vegas wedding information and discovered many interesting locations that you would like to explore in Fabulous Las Vegas.

Whether you prefer romantic resorts, sophisticated hotels, old Hollywood or jungle safari’s you can find it in Vegas. And because Las Vegas is a top wedding destination, you can also expect to get great travel deals on honeymoon packages.

Las Vegas is home of top hotels like The Bellagio, The Wynn, The MGM Grand Hotel, Caesar’s Palace and the likes. These hotels are also home to the top shows and the best restaurants, where you can spend romantic dinners together. Get mesmerized with the millions of lights that adorn the streets of Las Vegas.

Las Vegas is not limited to casinos and The Las Vegas Strip. If you are the outdoors type you can book a tour of the Hoover Dam. Experience the wonders of nature at the Valley of Fire. Take in the beauty of the Mountains at Red Rock Canyon or Mount Charleston. If you are traveling during the winter months you can hit the slops on Mount Charleston.

For those up for an adventure you can feat your eyes on the beauty of the Grand Canyon or the Arizona Spillway. The Reclamations Tour will educate you on how the Nevada generators work, but this tour is not for the fait of heart, you will be going down the canyon.

The Boulder nook is the place to be if you are a “Celeb Watcher”, because this is a favorite destination of presidents and celebrities. And for the brave of heart be sure to visit the Boulder Dam Hotel, number four on the list of “Top Haunted Hotels In the United States”.

Another favorite for celebrity watchers are the many nightclubs and restaurants seen in tabloids worldwide that are frequented by some of Las Vegas’ most famous fans. And don’t leave the place without visiting Tabu if you want to go celebrity spotting. Nightlife is bustling in Las Vegas and you will surely be entertained by the various lounge acts all over the strip. If you want to experience Mardi Gras in Vegas then visit Rain and give your better half an unforgettable honeymoon.

But if you truly want to rub elbows with the worlds most famous faces then Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum is the place to be. Witness Vegas history with Sinatra and Dean Martin or visit with Liborace at the Liborace Museum, where his jewelry costumes and piano are on display. And don’t forget to visit with the sweetest celebrities at M & M World.

And of course no trip is complete without shopping. No matter what your budget Las Vegas has everything you could dream of. Stop by at the Miracle Mile Shops, located at the Planet Hollywood—it is really a miracle for shopaholics as this place carries over 170 shops to suit your fancy!

Le Boulevard at Paris is the place to be for those who want to have a glimpse of what shopping at any European hunt would be like. If you want to experience Paris in Vegas then this is it! The Forum Shops at Ceasar’s Palace and the truly extravagant shops at the Wynn which features stores from the worlds most exclusive designers.

Other shops and malls worthy to visit are Via Bellagio, Showcase Mall, Hawaiian Marketplace and the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian. You can also visit the different shopping malls off the strip of Vegas like Galleria, MonteLago Village and the Las Vegas Premium Outlets.

Las Vegas is lacking nothing in the way of entertainment. And you are sure to have a wonderful honeymoon to your unforgettable nuptials.

The Connection Between Blogs and Dating

10 comments - Post a comment

What do online dating and blogging have to do with each other? At first blush it may not seem like much, but dating blogs are becoming an increasingly popular feature on online dating websites. Blogs, or online journals, can be used to address dating issues to a wide audience, or just serve as a personal space for online dating clients to record their daily thoughts or ideas. The privacy settings that most dating blogs offer let also let people keep track of their dating history online, or keep friends up to date on the romance in their lives.

Dating blogs are among many of the new features that are being offered by online dating sites. Nowadays, Internet dating isn't relegated only to messaging and browsing, but also allows people to create and customize their own profile pages. Dating blogs are just one aspect of this.

The topics people choose to discuss on their dating blogs range as widely as the many personalities found on each website. Some popular topics include dating advice, humour, dating etiquette, and single parenthood. One of the greatest advantages of the personal dating blog is its flexibility. Members can use their dating blog space to serve whatever purpose they want, whether they want to talk about very personal issues, or really topics that relate to everyone.

What sets dating blogs apart from regular blogs? Not much really, aside from the content of a blog, or its location. By nature blogs are extremely personal and flexible in terms of what people choose to write about. However, blogs found on online dating websites are usually written by people who want a space to talk about dating issues, and want to discuss things that they know others on the site will be interest in. Most of the blogs found on Internet dating sites will touch on issues related to love, romance, or dating.

Why So Many Relationships?

No Comment - Post a comment

Hi Dennis,

I read your books, and like their practicality. I have one question of theoretical nature: why is it that woman usually do have had more previous relationships than men, although they are 'supposed' to be the more monogamous gender? Are they just trying a lot more short-term relationships? As you said, men usually focus on one at a time. This seems counter-intuitive to me as I understand woman.

Along the line, you mentioned their 'monkey-like' 'tree-hopping'; quickly moving on to the next relationship; again counter-intuitive to me what else I know about women. Could you please explain?

=======================

Hello!

Thanks for the comments on the book and for your support! We're constantly getting great reviews and if you'll excuse my arrogance, I've never seen a more complete, practical guide about dating, sex and relationships anywhere else!

I know exactly what you're asking here - and you're right on the damn money! This DOES seem counter-intuitive! In fact, there are a number of reasons why it's true:

1) Women have more opportunities than men.

More men approach women than the other way around. Thus, women have more access to relationships than men do. All a woman has to do is say "yes" - she doesn't have to approach anyone or risk getting rejected.

2) They comfortably overlap relationships.

As you pointed out from the book, women will rarely leave one relationship without having another firmly in place. Thus, as a relationship starts to wither, they will actually seek out another - even if it's not exactly what they want. They might not call this a "relationship", (even though it is) and they honestly think they're just being "strategic".

3) Women define themselves by their relationships unlike us guys that define ourselves by our careers.

Women are under much more self-inflicted pressure to be in relationships. When they're not, they believe they're "losers" and something is wrong with them. Thus, they'll easily move between multiple relationships in trying to find one they want to be in. This causes problems of course in that many women lie about dating multiple men, but as you also know, women are far better liars than men are for this very reason - they have to be!

4) Women will define even minor dating experiences as "relationships" whereas guys don't do this.

When women start dating a guy, they instantly think of themselves as already "with" him. They imagine how their names will look with his last name on a wedding invitation, or how it would be to be addressed as "Mrs. Whatever", etc. Thus, this very act solidifies the relationship in their minds.

This also leads to some nasty breakups where women build the fantasy only later to find out it wasn't true - and they blame the guy for it! Women don't even know they're doing this to themselves!

5) Women also define their male friendships as "relationships".

Many women have guys hanging around them and actually collect these "friends". They intuitively know that these guys only hang around them because they want something more, but since the women control how far things go, they're not motivated to prevent it in the first place. They see this as "gaining experience" or "studying men" and actually believe that these horny guys represent a cross section of most men.

You and I know they don't, but this is exactly where the idea that "men are dogs" comes from - these guys that are always ready to hump their legs!

By the way, as I mention in the book, women won't admit to the real number of relationships they've had! Thus, when a woman tells you that she's had "2" or "3" or whatever, multiply that by at least 2 - and you're still probably short!

Best regards...

A brief history of online dating

6 comments - Post a comment

The introduction and singles dating industry is not new. In fact, dating and singles clubs have been around for many years. Bob Hope said in the early 1950's, "I once sent my photograph to a Lonely Hearts club and they sent it back saying, thanks but we are not that lonely". The Lonely Hearts club image lasted nearly as long as Bob Hope himself and was the butt of many comedians' jokes, which gave the dating industry an image that only desperate and lonely people join such clubs.

The internet has changed many things and nowhere has it had a larger impact than with the dating industry. Online dating websites started to bring a younger audience to the dating and singles matchmaking industry, where these systems would conveniently email you people in your area who were also looking to meet other single people. The fact that these early sites, as many poor quality sites still do today, would simply collect as many photographs as possible and send them to you, would frequently result in you opening your email only to have a photo staring out at you that could scare a police horse.

The better quality online dating sites such as chancetomeet.com, have highly developed searches and tools such as "connect phrases" to help you find the right person. There is good evidence that the sites that charge for membership have a much higher quality of contact, with the more you pay the more serious the member. Free sites or sites that charge a nominal amount tend to attract the "one night stand" end of the market and tend to have page after page of contacts that you have to trawl through with little or no information about that person, apart from the fact they like holidays, nice people and watching the X factor, with dislikes of people who bring an axe on the first date!

The future of online dating, whether you are looking for the chance to meet a long term partner, or maybe looking for something more casual, does seem to be assured, as the high divorce rate and number of people staying single looks set to continue globally in the years to come.

However, things are about to change in the future of online dating, just as dating changed with the advent of the internet. Only this time it may be even more of a revolution, as computers get faster along with Internet connection speeds. These advances will bring more exciting ways to date and meet people as social networking sites have recently shown. As computer graphics improve, we will see Virtual reality start to become the norm in online dating. Chancetomeet.com has been developing technologies in this area ready to take advantage of faster computing power and are preparing to launch these new services in the near future. To keep up to date why not register for free at www.chancetomeet.com and who knows what the future may bring.

Gossiping & Apple Pie

No Comment - Post a comment

"I resolve to speak ill of no man whatever, not even in a matter of truth; but rather by some means excuse the faults I hear charged upon others, and upon proper occasions speak all the good I know of everybody." -- Benjamin Franklin

Do you really believe that Franklin didn't get into a little gossiping now and then? Well, he actually only resolved to stick to the high road. He didn't promise to do it. That's just as well, since he didn't have much trust in anyone. For example, he said, "If you would keep your secret from an enemy, tell it not to a friend;" and "Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead." It's little wonder that he liked to play it close to the vest when it came to other people. Speaking ill of no man, excusing faults, and speaking all the good he knew was a very clever way to avoid becoming the focus of others' gossip. Franklin may have picked up the strategy from Virgil who said, "Fama, malum quo non aliud velocius ullum, mobilitate viget, viresque acquirit eundo." If you are a tad rusty with your Latin, that means, "Report, that which no evil thing of any kind is more swift, increases with travel and gains strength by its progress."

With authorities the like of Virgil and Franklin admonishing you not to gossip, it's in your interest to know as much as you can about gossiping and gossips. For instance, Walter Winchell clarified one of the gossip's core strategies when he said, "Gossip is the art of saying nothing in a way that leaves practically nothing unsaid." The super stars pursue their art through inference and innuendo, not facts or plain talk. Bertrand Russell added his two cents worth with, "No one gossips about other people's secret virtues." When it comes to gossiping, if you don't have something good to say, it's your turn.

Of course, Virgil and Franklin aren't the only high road folks who advised against gossiping. Edward Wallis Hoch said, "There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, that it hardly becomes any of us to talk about the rest of us." If that weren't the final word on it, a Jewish proverb says, "What you don't see with your eyes, don't witness with your mouth." No, that's still not the end of the unsolicited advice. A Chinese proverb says, "What is told in the ear of a man is often heard 100 miles away;" and a Spanish proverb says, "Whoever gossips to you will gossip about you." All of the high road wisdom not withstanding, don't forget what Wendell Phillips knew to be true, "The Puritan's idea of hell is a place where everybody has to mind his own business."

An Apple Pie From Scratch

"If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe." -- Carl Sagan

Now there is a humbling thought. It does tend to put a damper on one's ego quotient, doesn't it? Invention and creation are far less original than they are typically represented as being. Alexander Graham Bell certainly understood this, "Great discoveries and improvements invariably involve the cooperation of many minds. I may be given credit for having blazed the trail but when I look at the subsequent developments I feel the credit is due to others rather than to myself." Henry Ford got it too, "I invented nothing new. I simply combined the inventions of others into a car."

Ralph Waldo Emerson explained how invention and creation actually work, "Only an inventor knows how to borrow, and every man is or should be an inventor." The essence of the principle was captured by Auguste Rodin, "I invent nothing. I rediscover;" and what may rank as the first corollary was suggested by Jonathan Swift, "Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody else has thought." The converse of Swift's corollary was offered by the famous Anon., "Don't expect anything original from an echo."

The take home point is that inventions, creations, and discoveries aren't themselves unique or original. They are merely the objects or outcomes. Creation is in thinking what nobody else has thought.

Robertson Davies said, "Although there may be nothing new under the sun, what is old is new to us and so rich and astonishing that we never tire of it. If we do tire of it, if we lose our curiosity, we have lost something of infinite value, because to a high degree it is curiosity that gives meaning and savor to life." Curiosity ignites imagination; and imagination in turn fuels the fire of creation. What then is this fire, this imagination? Peter Nivio Zarlenga's words hold the answer, "I am imagination. I can see what the eyes cannot see. I can hear what the ears cannot hear. I can feel what the heart cannot feel." Dr. Seuss' advice is a fitting, concluding message for all who create, from universes to apple pies. "Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!"

You may now be asking what Gossiping & Apple Pie have to do with each other. Actually, I doubt that they have anything to do with each other; but perhaps you will see a connection, if only you Think left and think right and think low and think high. It's merely your opportunity to pursue.

A Background On MySpace Users

No Comment - Post a comment

A perception still exists that MySpace is a website for kids. And this perception isn't entirely inaccurate: the specific numbers may not be available for general consideration, but a cursory look at the MySpace site -- the advertisements, a sampling of profiles -- indicates that the age range of MySpace users trends young. But trending young isn't the same as exclusively young.

There are certainly adult MySpace users. How many adult users? MySpace alone may know what the demographics of MySpace users are -- information that would certainly be used for advertising -- but the model for MySpace isn't inherently juvenile. MySpace, at its core, is a social network. Socializing is just for kids? Of course not.

Most MySpace users are younger, but there are adult MySpace users too. Let's take a guess and presume the division between MySpace users is seventy percent to thirty percent, favoring younger users. On its face, thirty percent may or may not be a considerable percentage. Thirty percent is considerable, however, when talking about MySpace users, because there are so many MySpace users to begin with.

On a typical MySpace profile, MySpace states there are -- rounding out -- one hundred ninety million users in the MySpace network. When trying to determine how many adults use MySpace, assuming thirty percent of MySpace users are adults, you get twenty-five million, rounded, from one hundred ninety million. Using this formula estimate, twenty-five million of MySpace users are adults.

MySpace claims there are one hundred ninety million users in their network. This number is certainly an overestimate. Why? The standard indication of a MySpace user is the presence of a MySpace home page, something MySpace refers to as a profile. It's not at all uncommon, however, for MySpace users to create more than one profile: one user creates several profiles in some instances. So while there may be one hundred ninety million MySpace profiles, each of those profiles does not indicate a unique MySpace user.

Even if one accepts that not every MySpace profile indicates a unique MySpace user -- a safe assumption -- it's still not difficult to estimate how many actual MySpace users there are. Say that, on average, each MySpace user actually creates two profiles: this may be a slightly low estimate, but it's not unreasonable. If each MySpace user creates two profiles, then there are actually ninety-five million unique MySpace users, not one hundred ninety million.

Regardless of how the number of unique MySpace users is actually estimated, the final number will be considerable. This has clear implications: MySpace is a great networking opportunity, whether the networking be social in nature, or professional.

Relationships: Prescribing the Symptom

No Comment - Post a comment

"Sam whines and complains to me a lot, and then expects me to be turned on to him and make love with him. When I don’t want to, he gets angry," said Jackie in our first telephone counseling session. "I have become more and more shut down. I don't want our marriage to end, but if we keep going this way, that is what is going to happen."

"Jackie, what happens when you try to talk with Sam about this?"

"He just gets defensive and blames me for his unhappiness. I just don't know what to do."

"It sounds like Sam wants control over you, but is very resistant to anything you have to say, and then the two of you get into a power struggle. What I think might help is doing what I call 'prescribing the symptom.' Let's do some role-plays so you can see what I mean. You be Sam complaining and I will be you."

(Jackie being Sam, using a whiny voice) "Honey, I just couldn't sleep last night, and I'm feeling so anxious about work. Maybe tonight we can be together."

(Me, being Jackie) "Sam maybe if you whine just a little bit more and try to make me feel really guilty, I will feel turned on to you!"

"Wow," laughed Jackie, "that might work!"

"Let's try some other role-plays."

"Okay. (Being Sam, yelling) You know what Jackie? I've had it with you. I don't feel loved at all. Why should I stay in the marriage?"

(Me, being Jackie) "Sam, you are not being angry and threatening enough. Maybe if you yell even louder and threaten more you can have control over getting me to love you."

"Oh, I love this! I think that Sam is the kind of person who will really get this!"

In our next session Jackie had much to report.

"This was a terrific week! I prescribed the symptom at least three times! Each time Sam looked at me like I was crazy and then started to laugh. He is really getting how ridiculous it is for him to think that whining and complaining and yelling will get me turned on to him. Near the end of the week he was much lighter and happier and I actually felt turned on to him! We made love for the first time in months."

Prescribing the symptom is an excellent way for some people to gain awareness of what they are doing that is not working well for them. When you are prescribing the symptom, it is important to:

1. Speak in a light, joking way, with no judgment.

2. Describe the behavior, encouraging the person to do it even more.

3. Describe the intent behind the behavior. For example, the intent of Sam's whining and complaining was to make Jackie feel guilty enough to give in. The intent behind anger or complaining is to have control over getting what the person wants. It is very helpful to articulate this intent to control, as I did in the role-play by saying, "Maybe if you yell even louder and threaten more you can have control over getting me to love you."

Many people are resistant and hate it when someone tells them what to do. When you tell a resistant person to do exactly what they are doing, and in fact to do it even more, they are likely to resist you and stop doing what they are doing - whether they are children or adults. After all, when someone is whining and complaining or getting angry, he or she is being a controlling child who wants to be in control, but does not want to be controlled.

Sometimes, prescribing the symptom can work wonders!

Online Adult Dating Guide

3 comments - Post a comment

So, is it really possible to find a soul mate online through a dating service. Speaking from my own personal experience, yes it is! If you are ready to look for love online, you are most certainly not alone. There are currently millions of singles all over the world using the power of the world wide web to meet other single people.

Online dating services have changed dramatically over the years. Todays online dating services provide opportunities for people of all ages, religion, ethnic groups and geographic locations.

The problem that most singles face is not having access to other singles, and this was certainly the case for me, so many of my friends were already in happy relationships it was hard for me to meet single people. Of course I was sceptical at first, as there was still some stigma attached to online dating, however I believe that it has become more and more normal over the past year or so. For this reason, online dating is a phenomenal solution that provides access to people efficiently, conveniently and affordably.

With todays technology, you have the options to ensure your dating experience is fun and successful. If you are considering taking your first step into the world of online dating, the following tips will help you to get started.

1. Arrange to meet your date in a public place where there are plenty of other people around. Don't allow your date to pick you up from your home, at this point you shouldn't have disclosed your address anyway.

2. It's always respectful for the man to offer to pay the bill. However, it may not be a bad idea to go halves, that way your date won't expect anything in return.

3. The biggest obstacle to a person's judgement when on a date, is alcohol. Not only does it affect your judgement, but alcohol also lessens your inhibitions. It is better to either just stick to one glass or try and avoid alcohol completely on your first date.

4. Never assume that your date is safe. It's important to never let your guard down on a first date. Always tell friends or family where you are meeting your date, and arrange to ring someone when you are home safe.

5. Go with your gut instincts. If something doesn't feel right, then it probably isn't. Make your excuses and leave. Also, don't sleep with someone on at least the first three dates.

6. If you are going to exchange numbers at the end of the date, then give him your mobile number and not your home land line number.

7. No matter how much fun you may be having on your first date, always remain alert and remember to have your mobile phone with you, just in case.

8. Dating safely is very important. Remember that in the early stages of dating you are still getting to know someone that you probably know very little about. By creating a safe enviroment, you're creating a better situation for yourself.

Things That Attract Man to Woman

No Comment - Post a comment

There are certain things that are going to attract a man to a woman. If you are a man and you are wondering what you can do to make yourself more attractive to a woman, you need to pay attention. You have to check this out so that you have what it takes to draw in a woman and keep her interested in you. Being able to attract a woman is going to be the first step in building a great relationship.

1) Dress for Success

The first thing that you need to do is make sure that you are keeping up with your appearance. Women want to have a man that looks a certain way. They want to have a man that takes pride in their appearance and wants to look good for them. However I am sure that a woman does not want to have a man that is too worried about what they looks. Pretty boys are not usually what most women want however there are a few that do like this type.

Make sure that your clothes and hair and everything about you makes you look attractive. Keep yourself groomed well and always make sure that you smell good. Women go crazy for men that smell nice.

2) Take Advantage of Her Senses

You need to make sure that you are appealing to her senses. This means you need to think about what you can do to make yourself more appealing to her through her senses. You need to have everything - from the way that you sound to the way that you touch her!

Make sure that you talk in the voice that melts her from time to time. Again having the right fragrance is going to make her feel good about you too. Clothing and appearance will take care of the sight sense and you need to make sure that you keep up on the sense of touch. Give her comfort and hold her when you should and make her feel loved by the way that you touch her.

3) Make her Dream about You

Give her a reason to think about you. Whatever it is make sure that you leave an impression in her mind. It can be anything from the way that you talk to her, the affection that you show her or the little things that you do to make her happy.

Whatever it is make sure that she can never take her mind off of you. This will make her feel good and you will be able to have her in the palm of your hands all the time.

4) Make her the Center of your Universe

Treat her like she is the most important thing in your life. Of course she should be but you need to show her. Focus your attention on her and block out any distractions. This means a night out with the guys, a good looking waitress, sweet looking ride on the road or anything else that may grab your attention from her.

You want to make sure that you are giving her your full attention and making sure that she knows that she is the only thing that matters when you are together. Even when you are not together, let her know that you are thinking about her. Text her or give her a brief call from time to time. Let her know that you are always thinking of her and that you want to let her know that.

5) Flirting never hurts

Do not be afraid to flirt with her. This will make her feel sexy and good. You should never flirt with anyone else though. This will usually only make her mad and you may end up getting in a lot of trouble if you do this. Let her know that you are attracted to her.

6) STOP - Listen

Listening to a woman is going to get you far. If you are trying to win the heart of someone, you need to pay attention. Make sure that you listen to everything that she is saying and be sure to make eye contact with her. This will make her feel good and she will defiantly be attracted to you for this.

7) Take an Interest in Her Life

Women love men that take an interest in what they are doing and what they are feeling. Make sure that you are giving them a reason to want to hang out with them. Do the things that she likes to do and spend time getting to know her better. This is something that you will want to do so that she knows that you are interested in her and what she is doing in life. Ask her that her hobbies are and what she likes to do for fun.

8) Honesty IS the Best Policy

Women like men that are honest and sincere. Do not lie to her. This will only get you in trouble. You need to make sure that you are doing what you need to in order to keep the lines of communication open and never make anything up or lie to her. Give her a reason to trust you and never let her down in this way. You may never regain her trust if you do.

When you are serious about getting a woman to be attracted to you all of these techniques will help you. Use them to your best interest and take advantage of the things that you can and make sure that you are keeping all of your intentions good when you are trying to make a woman fall in love with you.

When You're Single in Chicago

1 comments - Post a comment

So you say you're single in Chicago? What are you going to do about it?

First things first. You have to find someone else who happens to be single in Chicago, and you have to be willing to take the steps to meet them and take them out into the town to experience everything the Chicago dating scene has to offer.

This is possibly the most important step, though, admittedly, one of the more difficult. There are more than a million singles in Chicago, so how do you find the right one?

Modern times call for modern solutions, and the Chicago online dating community is one of the best in the country. And online dating sites that offer compatibility profiles are one of the best ways to weed out the incompatibles and make the most of your time as a single in Chicago.

Now, once you've found the right person, it's time to try something new and unique. With so many opportunities in Chicago, there's no reason to let yourself get bogged down in the old standby “dinner and a movie”. When you're single in Chicago you have a very singular opportunity to experience activities, music, cuisine and a world of other possibilities that singles in other cities will never know.

You can begin your day at Millennium Park, take the time to go strolling through the landscape or pack up a blanket and food for a wonder picnic. If you're looking for something a little more active, head over to Navy Pier where you can experience everything from riding on a giant ferris wheel to watching a performance by a Shakespeare Troupe. Still not what you're looking for? Then take a day and mingle with the tourists at the Sears Tower. This is something that Chicago singles often pass up because it's seen as too “touristy”, but the view of Chicago can only really be appreciated 110 stories up. It's a great way to get the date started off right.

If these activities aren't quite your thing, consider the Chicago sports scene. Chicago is populated by some of the most loyal sports fans in the country, and if you can find someone who is single in Chicago and also loves the Bears/Bulls/Cubs/etc, the an athletically themed date may be perfect for you.

Chicago is known for some great cuisine, but often we can fall prey to complacency and routine, and always wind up at the same places over and over again. Take some time to find a new and romantic place and start creating some truly memorable dating memories. Whether at Geha's Fondue or Emperor's Choice for some Chinese food, you can find new dining experiences in Chicago.

But if what you really need is to hit the dance floor with your favorite Chicago dance partner, then this town can provide. When you're single in Chicago you can spend your evenings surrounded by 800 other people at the Crobar or experience a wide range of music at Sonotheque. There's something in this town for everyone, from techno lovers to Country swingers.

So here's the real question: With so much to do in Chicago, why would you waste your time with the mundane and standardized dates? We often do it because it's simple, quick, and fairly cheap. And While we know it won't be all that impressive of a date, we also know that it probably won't fail miserably either. Rather than try something new, where our plans may crash and burn, we opt for the “safe” option, where our plans can wallow in the shallow waters of routine. But maybe it's time to take advantage of your time as a single in Chicago and start making your dating life something spectacular.

Titanium Wedding Ring For Men

3 comments - Post a comment

Titanium has been on the market for ring bands for only a few years now. Yes, some of the bands combine gold with titanium. Titanium is an extremely light weight but quite durable and hard metal. Still, titanium will eventually scratch a little. Gold as an inlay or added "band" to the ring will wear much more quickly but may be more easily restored than can the titanium.

First, make sure you have white gold and not yellow. Both colors of gold are used as additions on titanium rings. To check, you need to clean any possible tarnish from the gold to see what the color truly is. White gold can turn a yellowish color but generally not so yellow as yellow gold. Use a paste of baking soda or a good jewelry polishing cloth of the type to remove tarnish and rub the ring. If white gold, the yellowish tarnish should come off and show the true color.

If not, likely the gold is yellow to start. Yes, the gold will look differently against titanium than with metals of other colors. I cannot say that white gold would look yellow since the rings I have seen look either yellow or white, depending on the original color of gold. White should look whiter, in my opinion.

Still, the white may be tarnished to a yellow tinge especially if of low karat such as 375. Generally, the gold applied to titanium in the usa is at least 14k, 585 and not the lower 9kt you mention. I assume you are in a British part of our world. If made for sale in the UK, 9kt is a possibility but generally the gold is of higher karat on titanium rings.

Refinshing the ring. Unfortunately, with the innate hardness of titanium even in jewelry alloys, home polishing will not restore the ring. You will need to visit a jeweler and ask that the ring be refinished. This is possible using aggressive buffing compounds on a motorized buffing machine. The compound must be aggressive to remove scratches from the hard metal. The jeweler must be quite careful to avoid too much polishing of the gold since that metal is much softer and could be buffed to a thin condition.

The jeweler will likely use a hard felt buffing wheel which will allow proper cutting of the titanium and is sharp edged enough to control the contact of the wheel with the gold section. The aggressive polishing is followed with finer compounds and lastly perhaps with a "green rouge" which will polish both the titanium and gold at the same time.

If the gold is white but tarnished to a yellow tinge, you may ask the gold area be plated with rhodium, a very hard and durable white metal often used to preserve white color in white golds. The jeweler may plate the gold only and avoid the titanium since you certainly do not want it to be plated with a white color!

This is done by masking or covering the titanium with a lacquer, red fingernail polish preferred since it is easy to see the start and end of the protective mask of lacquer. Then, using a simple electroplating bath, the rhodium is applied and will help keep the white gold white for a longer period of time. If after the first buffing to restore the luster, you may decide not to have the rhodium plate done. That is also a fine choice.

I am sorry there is not an "at home" remedy to repolish the titanium. The metal is simply too hard to polish without motorized buffing with the proper buffing wheel and polishing compounds. I do hope you enjoy the ring. Resizing is a problem and the titanium may be stretched or perhaps compressed about 1/2 finger size at the maximum. Cutting and adding or cutting to size down is not possible for the jeweler.

Wedding Grooming Tips for Men

No Comment - Post a comment

Whether you’re the main attraction (groom) or a trusty sidekick (groomsmen), wedding days call for men to look their best. And even if your wedding is a thing of the past, you’ve always got anniversaries to deal with. Here are some men’s grooming tips to handle both the wedding and everything that comes after (or any formal event you are invited to).

Grooming Tips for Men

* Looking good takes some work and time, so begin a basic skin care routine of cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing early to get the greatest results. Once a day (or twice if you have oily skin), wash with a liquid cleanser to remove debris and clear pores. Follow with a high-performance moisturizing product to keep skin smooth, hydrated and looking great. Two to three times a week, exfoliate with a face scrub to remove dead skin cells and improve skin’s surface.

* If you’ve never spent time on a skin care routine before, consider purchasing a kit that contains all of the products you will need to get started. It takes the guesswork out of figuring out what products to use for what (and can make excellent groomsmen gifts, too!).

* Treat individual problems, such as under-eye circles, fine lines and acne, with products specifically formulated for them.

* For superior shaving without irritations like ingrown hairs, use products that are gentle and don’t contain irritants such as fragrance, menthol or alcohol. Avoid foamy products, as these do not lubricate skin adequately. Change your blade after 4-5 uses to keep from going over the same place more than once due to a dull blade. If possible, shave in the shower as the steamy air will open pores and allow hairs to be shaved closely.

* For super-smooth shaving the day of the big event, skip shaving the day before and then shave in two steps: First, shave with the grain with very light pressure. Second, reapply a thin coat of shaving cream and shave against the grain for smooth results.

* Regularly wash your hair with a gentle shampoo that will remove dirt without stripping away natural moisturizers. Make sure to get a haircut or trim a few days before the wedding or anniversary, but don’t opt for a new style the day before since this could turn out to be a disaster.

* Nails & Hands: With all the hand-shaking and hand-holding going on, it’s a good idea to make sure nails are clean and trim, and hands are moisturized and free of grime. Why not splurge for a manicure? More and more men, from businessmen to movies stars, are getting them these days, and trust us: Sparkly polish will not be involved.

* Wedding and event planning begins months, and sometimes years, ahead of time, so take advantage of the wait by getting fit with a nutritious diet and a regular exercise routine.

* Don’t stink up the place: Make sure to wear deodorant. Keep breath mints handy for those slow dances.

* Some wedding experts recommend men skip cologne at weddings, citing the fact that there will already be a lot of perfume in the air, as well as scent from the flowers. If you choose to wear cologne, keep the scent light and the application to a minimum.

* For anniversaries, gifts don’t have to be elaborate or expensive. Plan a getaway weekend somewhere, even if it’s only two towns away. Book a spa appointment for the two of you and spend a day relaxing. Or instead of an expensive dinner, try revisiting a place you ate at when you first started going out, or a place you two have always wanted to try. The point is to celebrate your marriage any way you see fit.

Art of Flirting

No Comment - Post a comment

Flirting is the way most people determine whether or not a member of the opposite sex is interested in them. Following is a quick outline on how you should go about the complex, sometimes fun, sometimes not so fun, task of flirting. It all beings with your approach.

The Approach

One person approaches the other. They move into closer physical proximity. This much is clear: NO approach equals NO possibility of initiating contact. You must approach!

Example: A woman sits down next to a man in a coffee shop, or a man stands near a woman in a dance club. This is the first step. Once you approach, you begin looking for the signs.

The Signs

The person who has been approached will always signal the other’s presence in some way…a sign. This signal is not like a train whistle, however, more a subtle body language which you can learn to recognize. For example, he or she simply may look up, move over to make room, nod slightly, or signal with a glancing eye contact.

A display of total obliviousness to the one who is approaching generally indicates lack of interest altogether. Don’t be discouraged. But if the one you approached shows absolutely no interest, then it’s time to re-group and try again. But let’s say the approach works. You have your positive acknowledgement, now what? Time to talk

The Verbal Exchange

The two people may then engage in a mild verbal exchange about impersonal, unimportant matters such as the weather or the scene around them. The key word here is MILD.

This is the classic place for the clever “line,” but cleverness is not required. At this point, a verbal exchange is not for the purpose of sharing valuable insights about life or determining philosophical compatibility. It is just a vehicle to further the developing contact.

Examples: Verbal overtures might include anything from “please pass the pickles” to “your looking great tonight”, to “have you seen the waitress?”. Without some form of verbal response, it is highly unlikely that the next step will occur. Let’s say all is going as planned. Time for body language.

Body Language

Over a period of time, a couple that has begun to talk may also begin to orient themselves physically to one another, to turn toward one another until, if all is goes well, they are fully facing one another. This is your goal.

This step can take minutes or hours . . . or weeks or months . . . to achieve. Yet, without this physical reorientation toward one another, not very much can ever happen, so give up on people who turn their back toward you for long periods of time! But if they don’t…

Touching

The woman or the man (most often the woman) touches the other in a light, fleeting way. Examples: A couple might accidentally brush their hands against one another while reaching for a drink, or the woman might pat the man on the arm in the middle of a shared joke. The exchange of very subtle, almost glancing touches may continue for some while, and if all goes well, can escalate into the casual affections shown by couples who are dating. If you’ve reached this point, then flirting has now become the beginning of a relationship. The Art of Flirting should always end with the beginning of a relationship. Now get out there and flirt.

The Art of Flirting is really the Art of making first contact. You only have one shot at making a great first impression. By following some of the guidelines we’ve established in this article, you should now be equipped to locate, approach, and ascertain whether or not your subtle flirting has opened the doors to a new and exciting relationship.

Rules Of Flirting

No Comment - Post a comment

All women are sure that they know how to flirt. But why some women attract crowds of men, and others, quite pretty and charming, are still missing their men? The matter is that flirt also has its own rules, based on non-romantic laws of psychology. Without knowing them, you may be searching for your “dream mate” till old age.

Let’s suppose you saw your dream man on a party or in club. What will each 5th woman do in such situation? She will come to him and start a conversation! What each 10th woman will talk about with him? About culture, art and books she read. And what will each 3rd do? Run away from her quickly! Not because she is ugly or uninteresting. A strange man is just firstly attracted by sexuality, nit intellect.

So, you caught HIS look. Don’t be in a hurry to avert your eyes. Look straightly at him for several seconds more, than it is accepted, then close your eyes slightly, take a breath and look aside. As soon as you see that he averted his eyes with your off-center vision, look at him again… A man treats such trick as a straight hint that a woman wants to become acquainted with him, but is shy to do it herself, so she is stealing a look.

It is better to look over your shoulder, which you should raise slightly upper, than usual. Man associate shoulder (especially if it is naked or covered slightly) with female breast. Advertisers know this trick well, and you often can see a wonderful strange woman on bill boards, looking this way, - this, according to researches, gets men worked up and attracts them.

It is well known, that a naked wrist is also a strong erotic sign. Some psychologists assume, that display of wrist shows trust to a man, a wish to give in to him. If you are also stroking a stem or neck with your hand, looking like you’re lost in thoughts, then this is also a sexual hint understood to any man.

Pose has an important meaning. If you sit hunched, do not even expect a man will come to you. Crooked back, sorry, - is a sign of a senile sickness, even if a young girl is sitting in such pose. So straighten your back, recline, shaking with your hair and checking your skirt (gestures of dolling up). If you wear trousers, put your thumbs behind a belt or an edge of a pocket – this is a gesture of sexual aggression, although what should a man expect from a women wearing trousers? If you are wearing skirt, bind your legs or cross them. This will create an impression of tension of hips muscles and says that a woman is ready for intimate adventures.

If a man is still standing at a bar after you have done all this tricks, - do not waste your time on him, probably, he is too drunk, married or not interested in women at all.

So, after you started conversation, you need to win his favour psychologically.

For this, become … his mirror reflection. How? Very easy – copy his pose and gestures. The essence of this in the fact that your pose should be as closer to a man’s pose, as possible. If in the beginning this is difficult for you, you can copy only a slope of his body, head, position of legs, hands. Imitation of gestures does not mean that you should raise your hand, twist your fingers etc simultaneously with partner. You just should look at gestures, peculiar to a man, and try to “transfer” them on you. If he “chops” a table with his hand, proving some thought, there is sense to do the same thing – this way you will strengthen your mutual understanding.

Another way to win a man’s favour – is to copy a rhythm of his breathing. Shortly speaking, breathe in unison with him. If it is difficult to do, you can imitate rhythm of his breathing, moving your hand or palm. Once you have done this, say a “dominant” idea, which you would like to inform him about. For example: “They say, I’m sexy” – and breathe out sharply. It is a paradox, but truth – your partner will also breathe out automatically, hold his breath for a while and there will be a feeling that his heart sank. This happens when a person agrees with something he just heard. Everyone will like to verify your words in practice.

What to do further? If you want your partner courting you – invite to a café or present a bunch of roses, and he does not hit upon an idea, you can suggest an idea to him. For example, raise your hand on the level of his eyes (you may hold a cigarette or pen in it) and say: “It is so hot here, I just cannot breathe! And in that café it is so cool and comfortable. We will be able to drink some tea!” – or just ask: “Will we go to a café or restaurant?”

This question will create an illusion of choice, but indeed, you will agree to both choices. Or (if you want another date): “Tomorrow in the evening I’m going for a walk. What are you going to do?” It looks like you asked a question, but, in fact, you have already suggested a decision.

A principle of three “yes” works good. A partner should answer positively on your three questions, then he will answer “yea’ on 4th one automatically already. For example: “Don’t you think this evening is terribly dark?” – “Yes”. – “There are no people on streets”. – “Yes”. – “And we are far away from home”. – “Yes”. – “Will you see me home?”

Use all these easy to make ways to ensnare a man and soon you will see that you can choose the one that suits you best of many admirers.
