Dating Dilemmas? Boyfriend / Girlfriend Quandaries?

There are two legendary lovers

who  really knew what was happening  what’sup.

For instance, as you mull and dwell over, Will he call? Should I call? Is texting, again, too forward? Is dropping by too gauche? Did I go too far- or far enough?

Mae West was right- Think:  You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

Mae West had a penchant for great advice packaged in a bit of double entendre and a dash of sparkling wit.

  • When I’m good I’m very, very good, but when I’m bad, I’m better.

Welcome to my world.

I was hired for a quick three-month assignment at Anonymous X to work my magic and <pouf> disappear. It’s what I do, this year. It’s been fun – I’ve met some very fun people.

Until I got here.

This is what my world looks like.

Men (boys) glued to their machines with not an iota of social graces. I grew up in the south – with manners. Everyone I know, from home, has manners. We greet one another – we flirt, we engage, we talk, we go out for drinks. We go  places – not just bars. We aim to leave work early – usually.

Where are the Fun People?

Whispering never works

Dating 101: If you want to get noticed…you are going to have to kick it up a notch and sing your own praises…

There is no reason to bellow and trumpet your myriad fabulous qualities.                                                        

Your manners will speak volumes.

Guys, do you hold the door open for a date? Do you walk on the outside? Do you stand when she returns to the table – or when a friend approaches? Do you offer to pick up the tab or graciously split it with her? 

When it comes to conversation, do you ask questions, listen and carry a conversation?

Remember, on a first date you don’t want to monopolize a conversation – however, you only have one chance to make a first impression. Touting a few of your better qualities isn’t against the rules. Bragging is.
