Pretend you are talking to your good friend

I was talking to my friend Lucy about what she looks for in the approach stage.
She said "I want a guy who will interact with me like he is talking to his friends, not coming off nervous or awkward, just being natural."

Her advice to the guys: When you see a pretty woman you want to approach, don't look at her as a pretty woman, try to imagine you are talking to your good friend.

Advice for Getting a Second Date

The following comes from Tesh.com

Advice for Getting a Second Date

Guys, are you a one-date wonder? Many men get so nervous on a first date that they end up making a terrible impression. That’s why we rounded up some relationship experts and asked their advice on acing the first date - and getting the second:

Let’s start with the logistics. If your date is someone you already know or is the “friend of a friend” - pick her up at her home. According to relationship columnist Susan Davis, when a guy does that, it sends the message, “You’re worth the extra effort.” However, that doesn’t apply if you met online. In that case, meeting in a public place is the gentlemanly thing to do.

Either way: The guy should pay. April Masini, the author of Think and Date Like a Man, says that paying for dinner sends the signal that your interest is romantic.

Skip the good night kiss. Honestly, the experts are split on this, but in a Harris Interactive survey, only half the ladies thought kissing on a first date was appropriate. Now, that doesn’t mean you can’t offer her a kiss on the cheek.That’s respectful, and still romantic.

This last tip comes from relationship coach David Wygant: End your date by asking for the next one. So, if she told you she’s a fan of Greek food, say something like, “I know a place that makes the best moussaka. Want to have dinner Thursday?”

To put it simply, chivalry is not dead. If you want to turn a first date into a relationship - do the driving, pay the tab, and end with a respectful kiss on the cheek and a second dinner invitation. That way you’ll both be looking forward to the next time you get together.

Men that cry

I admit that I was hooked on the ABC show the Bachelor this season, and this week bachelor Jason has gone from being a great guy to "the most hated man in America." If you are unfamiliar with all the buzz from this week, you can watch a video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1r7vSl0MYE

Women from across the country have ripped into this guy, with some going as far as posting his listed phone number online and encouraging others to call him and tell him what a slime ball he is.

The saga also raises an interesting debate over men who are emotional and are not afraid to cry. Most of my female friends have called Jason a Wuss, crybaby , etc, however a few have said that that is was a pleasant change of pace to see a guy who was not afraid to cry.
So, here is your chance to sound off about the Bachelor show in general and also about whether you think it is ok for men to show emotion and cry.
