How to Date In the Modern Age as a Woman

Ever wonder what the new dating practices are for women? You’ll be happy to know that a lot has changed for us. Yes, we can ask guys out and we can even dominate in the sexual arena. There is so much room for choice right now. Women are taking control of dating situations in leaps and bounds. So, here we will explain the new how to of the dating arena.
1. The Approach: Some say that you should never make the first move and part of that is true—however—you can do this without him really knowing about it. How? Well, with a bit of subtlety. Take a crowded bar; you see a man you like across the room—you don’t walk over and you don’t ask him to come over but—you give him a go sign. Eye contact first but not a stare. Gently glance over at him until your eyes meet. Once they do—count to three and look away. This should be enough to prompt a walk over. If he does then say hello and let him speak first. Then, it makes it seem as if it was his idea. This is best because it won’t emasculate him.
2. The Head Tilt: This is something that gives a psychological signal that you are unique and someone to know better. This is a proven scientific fact.  One of my friends gave the head tilt to her pool cleaner and instead of seeing it as flirting, he asked her if she was alright!
3. The Touch: This is something that you have to do strategically. If you touch him in the wrong place and in the wrong way, you are going to send the wrong signal. First, don’t over do it. Pretend you are brushing something from his shoulder or, while you are talking, casually touch his elbow. But, never touch below the belt including the leg and don’t touch him for more than a second or two.
4. The Proposition: As far as who asks out who. It really should be the guy if you want a real thing—but—that can be done on the sneak as well. You can make jokes and say things to egg him on in order to ask you out. If he says nothing then start to walk away and if he calls you back over and asks you for your number then you have a winner.

Women can be more assertive but at the same time you don’t want to be too aggressive. You want to ultimately make sure you are with someone that wants you.

It’s A Girl Thing

It’s A Girl Thing

Whoever came up with the notion that a woman can’t have fun without a man sure didn’t know what they were talking about. Gone are the days when women pined their life away by the telephone, waiting for Mr. Right to call. One of my female friends owns her own security company and she NEVER relies on a man for her work life or pleasure life. We women are fun, fearless, and we have no problem going out on the town by ourselves or with a group of girlfriends. (Honestly, isn’t that more fun anyway?) If you’re craving some girl time with your besties, there are a ton of options available to insure a fun night for all. Consider these …

1. Spa evening: As hard-working women, we tend to wear a bunch of different hats, such as wife, mother, employee, friend, cook, referee, daughter, and so on. So when we have the opportunity to pamper ourselves, that time is precious. And when you have a spa date with your close friends, it gives you the chance to sit back, relax, and talk about things you don’t feel comfortable sharing with anyone else. If you check the Yellow Pages, you can find many salons that offer discount packages for groups. Call and make your reservation today!

2. Not-so-ordinary recreation: Ever wanted to try bungee jumping but were too terrified to go for it? There’s just something about being with a group of your closest friends that tends to bring out the daredevil in all of us. Get together with your girlfriends and do something not-so traditional, like visiting a palm reader, skydiving, snorkeling, or something cultural like taking an art class. A break from the ordinary is good for the soul.

3. Swap meet: Do you have clothes, shoes, accessories, books, and other such items you no longer use? Then why not get together with your friends for a swap night? It’s a great way to fill up your closet with a new wardrobe without spending a dime. For your friends on a budget, this is golden, and new clothes are always a great boost to the ego.
