The Winter Buddy

The other night, a friend of mine and I casually talked about relationships and dating over cocktails in a swanky hotel bar. As both my friend and usual “plus one” to events, we scour the scene, enjoy some drinks,  check out any potentials for him to chat up, and end the night before 10pm to avoid complications…

We’re All Prostitutes

I have a belief that as humans we all tend to prostitute ourselves at certain times in our lives. Business transactions are a form of prostitution. Lawyers fighting for something they don’t believe in: a form of prostitution. Women hanging around on street corners to give some middle aged lonely guy his 5 minutes….okay DEFINITELY…

If They Like You….

If they like you, they will find you. The “what IFs” have been my mantra lately and I’m tired of excuses. If they like you, they will call. Excuse: “But what if he’s shy” -Then he will Facebook, tweet, like your instagram posts, etc.  We are in a technology obsessed world that makes it easy…

Bartenders

Whenever you enter a bar, the first person you notice is the bartender. Why? 1. You came to the bar for drinks, and they’re serving you. 2. Most of them are attractive It’s in a bar’s best interest to hire someone attractive, charming, and easy to speak with. A bartender doesn’t just serve you drinks,…

The Backburner Buddy

We all have one “Backburner Buddy”: Someone who we think of as a friend, or companion, but always got the feeling they might want to be something more. Although we wish it could be different, that we could feel something for that person, we know our platonic pen pals will never be our main burning…

Social Media for Dummies (The Ex Issue: V1)

Social media: Connector. Ingenious networking tool. Information database. Electronic invitation system. Friendship maintenance assistant. Passive aggressive comment forum? As if meeting, dating, breaking up and moving on weren’t already difficult enough, modern singles now have to face the repercussions of expired relationships and their effects on every social media network thus far established. Where do…

The First Date Kiss

When a friend asked me about the logistics of a second date, all I could say was “just do you”. In our ever changing rules in dating and match making, I couldn’t give them a proper guide book. The reason is, it’s there wasn’t one to hand out in a pamlet. At one point when pure…

Why Buy the Cow?

A guilty pleasure film of mine came on TV today. The 90s film “Someone Like You” with Ashley Judd is one of those films that although everything goes from bad to awful, yet they still kiss in the rain and fall in love. In the film, Ashley Judd makes up a theory of women being each a…

FWB,Non Exclusives, Bros, and the Bras

Mila Kunis tried it. As did Natalie Portman. Both fell in love in their “Friends with Benefits” situations, and road off into the subset. In bro/bra terms, they essentially failed the agreement. We all know what the “bro” is. The possible jock, the guy that you’re attracted to with his modern James Dean/player personality, and enough…

Guys and Gals Gone Crazy

                  **AUTHOR’S NOTE: I’ve been attacking the “game” and the “player” lately. After receiving comments about my advice being biased, let me repeat myself by saying, either type can be male or female. A cheater is a cheater. A player is a player. End of story. –And…

Why Women Love Bad Boys

Women love bad boys. You look throughout your growing pains of years and think back to all of your crushes. Was it the football player that didn’t pay you more than 5 seconds of attention except for asking you to pass the ketchup? Or, was it the cliche detention loving emotional “bad boy”, with more…
