Shallow?

Think back to your first crush… were the earlier crushes that much different from those who you are attracted today? Studies have shown that by the age of 8 we begin to develop “our type”. Honestly, I think mine started even younger. Now I didn’t always date “my type” because I had a lot of desperate years where I would take what I could get.  But my type hasn’t strayed all that much. I never liked the super big muscle guys (although I did date one from match.com). It ended when he confessed that he wanted to be a stripper and texted me some nude poses. That was always a massive turn off. I also never cared much for the super educated, cerebral type. For me I have always liked the funny, quirky guy with the boy next door type of looks. I had a pretty big list of turn...

Can You Really Deal With What They Are Thinking?

There are times when the one you are dating finds you annoying, unattractive or just a complete turn off! Sure we all have our off days. We are human! We wake up with bad breath, fluctuate in our weight, have bad hair days, body odor and moody dramatic moments. Perhaps the dress we thought was hot doesn’t work anymore or the new lipstick makes us look cheesy. Or perhaps it is just a turn off to that one person that we love. What do you really want them to do? Please don’t respond to the question by saying that they should just love you for you. This is ridiculous and a complete cop out! If your significant other is turned off then this is a chemistry thing. And chemistry is real. We can’t control the things that turn us on and off no matter how hard we try! There are two options...

Quickest Ways to Ruin the Dinner Date!

The majority of early dates take place in a restaurant. And despite my constant advice about first dates being quick ice cream or coffee dates, many of you still choose that restaurant! I understand you are hopeful that there will be a connection and you want more time together. So go ahead pick your favorite restaurant and best of luck! Oh and remember if you don’t like your date and want to avoid telling them outright, just do one of the things on the list below and I can guarantee you they will never want to see you again either!  Here is my list! Feel free to add yours in the comments!                                                                                    ...

The Dog Pound is a Lot Like Speed Dating

To start let me say that all speed daters are not dogs. In fact I own a speed dating company and most of the participants are quite charming. Charming just happens to be how I would describe some of the dogs I met today. It has been about eight months since my old Pitbull passed away. It was time to start thinking about a new relationship! Those looking for love try speed dating or internet dating web sites. Those looking for a dog typically go to the pound or a pet shop. I prefer the pound and speed dating but all are great options. I arrived at the pound and could see all the candidates yelling, barking and trying to get my attention. Similar to what happens during the ice breaker period of a speed dating event. In the crowd of puppies I spotted one that caught my eye. I felt that...

Who Pays?

Whoever makes the date is typically responsible for paying. Now we all know that traditionally the guy asks the girl out on the first date and that would mean that he should pay. But if you are a single guy this can get pricy in today’s economy. It can be especially expensive for those dads who are paying child support, alimony and saving for college tuitions. So here are a few ground rules to help make dating both fun and affordable! If it is a first date you should never have to drop $80 on a dinner when you don’t even know if the two of you have chemistry! Take her out for a coffee or an ice cream. I always call these milk shake-hand shake dates. This way you drop $10 and there is no pressure on anyone! If the chemistry is mutual and she seems interested in seeing you again, then...

How Big is Your Deal Breaker List?

Let’s face it women are far more likely to have these deal breaker lists than men. Some of you write them down like a shopping list while others continually recite them over and over again in your heads! We know the list quite well and every man we meet gets dragged through it without even knowing it is happening.  Every match.com profile we read gets dissected to see if they qualify and pass our deal breaker test. Some ladies are laughing at this subject and thinking they just want a “normal” guy. And I know exactly what they mean by “normal”! They just want to meet someone who is funny, attractive, has no major issues and is into them. And I am here to tell you that you can actually find that guy! But the first step is to throw that deal breaker list out the window. Erase it from you...

The Turkey Dump

College kids call Thanksgiving Break the "turkey dump" as they return home for the holidays and break up with their hometown girlfriend to enjoy all college has to offer. Also some other couples on the verge of breaking up try to get that break up in before having to deal with the whole holiday gift exchange. While others hang on just to get through that last holiday together because they think that will be a better time. Whenever the dumping or being dumped actually happens this little quiz will help get you through. 1. With all the new technology folks are wondering what is the proper way to break up? a. New websites are available to help you (Idump4u.com or breakupemail.com) b. Texting ...

I thought for sure this one would call?

Dear Date Doctor, It makes no sense! We had a terrific date. We laughed, he was very affectionate and we had a great kiss good night. I drove home with the biggest smile on my face. Once again I was sure he would call and once again he didn't. Could you explain this concept to me PLEASE! Waiting Dear Waiting, First of all please don't ever wait for a guy to call. If it is really tearing you up, make the call! Make it quick and don't complain or freak out. Just say hello and see what happens. If he doesn't call you back then you need to move on. But at least you will know one way or the other. Guys are a bit funny when it comes to dating. Ladies can't hide when they are not that into a guy. It is so obvious from the moment they meet. The signs are...

Quick Tips for Match.com

I am one of the many who can actually say that match.com works! I met my husband 9 years ago on this site and I even have a match.com baby who is about to turn 3. Why does it work so well for some and not others? The most obvious reason is attitude! Many folks have decided prior to even creating their profile that it will never work. And with that attitude they are absolutely correct! But it you can go into it with a positive attitude than these tips will make all the difference. Here goes...
