NEVER forget that women LOVE flowers

Sometimes it’s simple old-fashioned advice that gets us good results! This post is simple so don’t over-think things!

Waste of money

It shouldn’t surprise anyone to know that most men consider buying flowers a waste of money
Guys Flowers are NEVER a waste of time, effort or money

If you don’t know where she lives than bring flowers to the second date

Remember

Flowers are NEVER a waste of money…Women loooove flowers…NEVER forget this and NEVER be afraid to give flowers… She’ll be happy when she looks at them and she’ll be thinking of you!

Dating tips for dummies.

dating tips and dating photos1. Arrive on time

Be on time or, if possible, early for a date. If you arrive late, it signals to your date that you had better things to do than honor his/her time with a prompt arrival.

2. Don’t pick up that cell phone!

If you’re on a date, Don’t answer your phone, unless it’s an emergency call then  it’s just plain rude, show some respect.

3. Don’t drink too much!

Don’t drink to loosen up! You are not in college any more,  your goal on a date is to meet someone and not to get as drunk as fast as you can.

4. Comfortable silence is OK

A natural pause in a conversation is okay. It’s better to have a moment of silence to collect your thoughts than to talk just to fill the space.

10 Dating tips for Gentlemen

Guys don’t be a uncouth or ungentlemanly…follow these tips

Chivalry is NOT dead

Open the car door for her, pull out her chair, walk on the car side of the street…It takes no effort to do these things, but it makes all the difference.

Relax

Don’t get caught up in the version of the man you wish you were-be the real you.

Dress well

First impressions matter, dress like a gent.

Show respect.

Show up on time, be polite to the waiter and give your date your attention and please be subtle-don’t stare directly at her boobs.

Don’t drink too much

A beer or two is fine, but no one likes a messy drunk or someone who reveals TMI (Too Much information)

Turn off your phone

Your bros are not invited on the date.

Compliment your date.

Whether it’s her hair, eyes or dress, tell her how great she looks. Giving her a compliment will make her feel good

NEVER Talk about your EX

…just don’t go there

Pay for the date

That’s right… a Gentleman pays…this isn’t a power play-you’ve asked her on a date because you like her and want to do something nice with no strings attached.

Kiss Her

If the first date has gone well and you’re feeling it then go for the kiss at some point towards the end…don’t puss out!

Love, Cars and Dating

the flirting bibleWhen I first read this article by friend Fran Greene I thought it was cute and it made me smile! (It was originally published on Valentine’s day but is still relevant for every day!)

I immediately called Fran and asked her if I could post it. She agreed…hope it makes you smile too!

Love, Cars and Dating: By Fran Greene

Have you ever thought about hiring a classic car for a date?

There’s something so romantic about classic cars. Think about it. You can set the mood by playing romantic music whether you have a push-button radio or 8-track player. Be creative in finding some way to occupy yourselves while waiting for the tubes in the radio to warm up. Wink, wink.

Riding in a classic car can take you back in time, so use it to take your date to classically romantic spots, like a drive-in movie theater (yes, there are still some around), the beach at sunset, or your own version of “Inspiration Point.” You can even snuggle in the back seat, unless you happen to be driving a Corvette!

A haven for romance

Your car itself can be a haven for romance! Place your date’s flowers on the dashboard.  Imagine how romantic it will be when your date gets in the car and finds something there for them. Have music available with your date’s favorite songs and play them when you are driving together.

An extension of you

A classic car is an extension of yourself. You never have a second chance to make an unforgettable first impression with a date.

Neither does your car. So if you own a classic car (And don’t need to rent one) before your  night out on the town,  make sure that your car is ready for the date.  Give your car a bath, both inside and out. If your car masquerades as your office, your pet’s home, your kids gym locker, a restaurant, or a garbage pail, make sure that is cleaned out and presentable, just like you.

You want your car and your date to get along.  It is really quite simple: your date has to feel that there is room for her in your life, as well as in your car. By the same token, your classic car must approve of your date. You may have to forewarn your classic car not to get offended if your date gets a finger print on the console or dash, or accidentally slams the door too hard. Assure your classic car that you’ll take care of it once the date is over. Even if your date (gasp!) spills searing hot coffee on the upholstery. This is no time for your car to take revenge on your date by messing up her hair because the convertible top is down.

The way you drive
When you are by yourself your driving style only affects you, but when you have a date with you, everything changes. We all have our own unique driving habits. Are you a polite and cautious driver, or are you rageful and reckless? Make no mistake, your date will judge you by the way you drive. She will be watching the way you treat other drivers. Showing consideration for these other drivers, and for your date, will put you in the “driver’s seat.”

Safety is of the utmost importance. Multitasking in the office is valued, but doing it while on a date can be the kiss of death.  Do not talk on your cellphone, text, check your e-mail, or your voice mail while driving with your date. No matter how tempting the distractions may be, talking with your date is the way to their heart.

How to  have a Romantic Valentine’s Day that will always be remembered! By Fran Greene

Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to express your love and appreciation.  With a little planning, you are sure to be a romantic hit with  your partner.  Here are some suggestions  guaranteed to be a hit with your Valentine.

Romantic Gifts for Her

The golden rule of giving her a Valentine’s Day gift is never ever to ask her want she wants.   It takes all the mystery and romance love and great dating photosout of the gift.  The gift should be something that  she will love!  Listen for  hints, trust me; she will let you know!  Do not go overboard with someone who you have just started dating.  It could scare her off.  Going over the top will give the appearance that you want your gift to win her over rather than you.  Flowers, chocolate, or a cute cuddly bear is  the perfect gift.

Here are some suggestions  for romantic gift ideas:

  • A Gift  Certificate for a facial or a massage ( perhaps a couples massage)
  • A romantic getaway
  • Personalized  M and M’s
  • A dinner prepared by you
  • A  photo of the  two of  you in an engraved frame
  • 2 Dozen Roses ( 1 dozen is expected, 2 dozen is WOW)
  • High End Chocolate, not the chocolate from the supermarket
  • Romantic Jewelry, anything with hearts, circles and of course diamonds

Romantic Gifts for Him

Men need and want to be the center of your universe too.  Valentine’s Day is  the perfect day to let him know how much you care about him.

Have someone new in your life, chose  a card that is not too sentimental or mushy, find one that is a little mysterious.   Not sure if you want to get him something, or  it feels too new, get him anything  sweet and decadent.  It is  true that the best way to   a man’s heart  is giving him something sweet and delicious.

Here are some gift ideas that will put a huge smile on his face.

  • Personalized  cookies
  • Sexy  Sunglasses
  • Cologne that drives you crazy
  • Yummy chocolate
  • Home baked goodies
  • Breakfast in Bed

Score a Second Date: 6 First-Date Dealbreakers

Dating is high pressure. Every text message response time and emoji could be misconstrued and you’re axed without any redemption. Your short-lived shot at love goes down in history as another failed attempt at finding “the one.” And you’re just another “creeper” or “weirdo” who came up short in the game of love.

It’s a harsh reality, but singles are dating pessimists who look for reasons to support why you’re a bad catch, rather than a good one. Dropping you early on for something as trite as poor sarcastic timing or an ill-placed tribal tattoo easily prevents disappointment and heartache down the road. Know before opening your mouth and showing up for date number one, the odds are already stacked against you.

Yes, Pat Benatar and Jordin Sparks, we know love is battlefield. But you’re a warrior who got a first date. So what are you fighting for? A second one. Here, on a silver platter, are your first-date deal breakers that, if not avoided, will leave you void of a follow-up.

1.Scripts

Don’t be a conversational robot, and ditch any scripted talking points. Be who you are and let conversation naturally flow. Asking cliche questions extracted from an online dating profile will only produce cliche responses. What’s your favorite book? No. What do you like to do for fun? No. If you had a million dollars? No. Ask questions when you genuinely want to know the answers to get to know the person. Casually be observant to learn about your date, and be authentic while listening to her responses.

2.Retention

Not only should you inquire about your date and listen to her stories, try to retain the information. Learning something unique about your date and failing to remember that fun fact later on in the date makes you disingenuous and a bad last date. Make mental notes of when she moved to the city or what she loves most about her job. Remembering and referencing small details will tilt the pros and cons scale more toward “second date.”

3.Phone

The phone is for texting her that you’re on your way before the date and texting her thank you for wonderful time after. Resist the urge to discreetly take a picture of your date to send to your buddies. Try to hold back on looking at Facebook and Twitter. Don’t text your friends or family about your date, and refrain from checking work email. Respect your date, and keep your phone out of sight.

4.Dogs

Unless you’re meeting at the dog park, keep your four-legged furry best friend at home. If you can’t go anywhere without your pooch, you may have co-dependency and emotional attachment issues. Is there room for a woman in this relationship? Would a lady friend just be a third wheel to the already happy twosome between man and man’s best friend? No matter how much you love your dog, romantic first dates are for a duo, not a trio.

5.Check

Grab it. Pay for it. Graciously.

6.Interest

If she’s into you, she’ll love how eager you are to see her again. This isn’t the time to play hard to get. If you’re into her, let her know via text, phone call, email, or even flower delivery and a hand-written note for old-fashioned romantics. Just choose one, not all. Life’s too short to not share how you feel after getting to know someone on a first date. Be open and vulnerable. Give it a shot.

3 Dating tips if you’re over 60!

A death of a spouse or divorces have left many baby boomers single as they head toward their senior years.
If your over fifty, are still full of life and want to spend your remaining years with someone to love, then what can you do?

3 Simple tips

Here’s 4 simple tips to remember when dating!

Tip 1: You’re never too old to look good

It doesn’t matter how old you are or where you are going on a date , it is critical that you look your best on a date. Buy a new outfit for a date, get a new haircut and do whatever you need to do to look your very best!

Tip 2: Choose the right dating website

Ourtime.com or SeniorPeoplemeet.com are great websites to begin to meet people.
But remember things have changed since you were dating so remember that when it comes dating online, be careful before giving out your personal information to anyone you meet on the internet and always meet in a public space the first few times you see someone.

Tip 3: Have fun (And don’t worry too much about your adult children)

It’s your life and you deserve to enjoy it and have fun!valentines day dating advice 001
For many seniors with adult children the following scenario is a common one- You meet someone special online and then when you share that you’re finally dating your adult children don’t approve!
For many disapproving adult children regardless of how old they are they still feel that “you’re no longer with mom/dad”, and the thought of you in another relationship hurts them.
On a rational level your adult child may not say “I don’t want you dating,” but their behavior may reveal this!
The best medicine is to talk to them and tell them that you deserve to find love…and while
it’s tough to have this conversation is important to have…you deserve the opportunity to find love!

Another important thing you need to know…get good dating profile pictures

A first date is an opportunity to connect NOT an interview for marriage!

Take the pressure off yourself by remembering that a first date is not an interview for marriage!

An opportunity to connect

It’s simply an opportunity to connect with another human being- and maybe a  tryout for a second date!

Forget analyzing every detail of the first meeting….take a few deep breaths and see how things unfold!

Just think about making a connection… easy, simple, relaxed, genuine…

The key

Connection is key…Be the person glowing with good energy. Prompt others to share what makes them come alive. Share in their excitement. There is no more empowering, genuine way to connect.

First impressions count.

A Chemistry Test during the date

I love this post, for 2 reasons!

1: It’s a short post
2: It works!

Have you ever not been sure how your date is going? and by that I mean that you’re both having a nice tie but you’re not sure that she/he is attracted to you!

Here’s where body language comes in…

Simply do a “chemistry test” and lean into towards her/him just a little bit- (Be subtle and not too obvious here!) and then watch what she/he does.

If they lean away or  steps backwards then  they are most likely not feeling it.

If she/he lets leans towards you, then most likely there might be a little bit of chemistry…

“Date the real person-Not the potential”

A couple of days ago while driving I switched the radio on and found a radio program that was just ending…

201109092029320393491It was all about women who were dating the wrong guys…the expert (Who I didn’t get to hear who she was!) Gave some really good advice to women listeners, she said.

“Date the real person-Not the potential”

This in my opinion the main reasons intelligent, attractive women remain stuck in a dead-end relationship

“OK” I hear you say… “But my date is different”- “He really does have potential, he just lost his job in a tough economy”!

Women…There’s a vast difference between a guy who’s lost his job and is doing all he can to get a new job AND a guy who has the potential to be a great match for you!

Successful daters-(Even if they find someone attractive) will dismiss a date who fails to meet their criteria for a happy relationship!

You’re not going to FIX him, and you shouldn’t even want to try!
