I asked good friend Norma Germain to write a guest post about fragrance. Norma Germain is married to fragrance designer, Michel Germain. Together they have designed fragrances for Victoria’s Secret, Bloomingdale’s, and Macy’s. Model and inspiration behind “Sexual Sugar” perfume, she can be found dishing out tips on dating, flirting, perfume, and cologne on her Sexual Perfume Blog.
O.k., I know, buying cologne is the furthest thing from your mind right now. You’ve dismissed wearing anything beyond a drugstore aftershave (if you put on any scent at all). Buying aftershave is quick and dirty. You walk over to the drugstore aisle labelled “personal hygiene”, zoom in on a forest green or brown bottle, walk up to the cashier, and leave with a bag that looks as if it’s holding something any real man uses (razors, condoms, gum). After all, walking into a department store’s fragrance section is about as manly as walking into a flower shop to buy a bouquet for your man-pad.
Oh, you are so naive.
Drugstore aftershave is fine. It does the trick, making you smell nice. But do you really love it? Does it really suit your personality and the way you want to be viewed by others, including women? Is it getting you what you really want … an ambush by Ms. Gorgeous? [Read The Rest Of This Entry]
This guest post of some recent dating sucess was written by my dear friend, Kerri Kilbourne.
Rather than playing the “three strikes and you’re out” card, I’d like to turn the tables and highlight what one man did to make me say…”he did three things perfectly, and I want to get to know him.”
Last weekend, I went to a hockey game with one of the few friends I have in my new city. I met a bunch of “friends of friends”, and hit it off with the whole group. It seems though, that I sparked the interest of one person in particular. The man slipped a piece of paper with his name and number to a friend of mine & asked her to pass it along. Kind of 7th grade-ish, but…no harm, no foul. On that paper, he did crack a joke at the fact that I’d been calling him by the wrong name all day, which was charming, showing he has a good sense of humor. Cheer number one for him: proactively give me your number & put me in the driver’s seat. I liked that. [Read The Rest Of This Entry]
This guest post acts as a great follow up to “Tips To Make Your Dating Profile Interested” and written by blogger Emily Macintosh. Emily Macintosh writes the dating blog My Life On Match & More . She is a cute, 30-year-old, successful, LA-based online dater. Her stories are all true and some traumatizing!
Last week I went on two dates. I was excited about both. They both looked cute in their online profiles and it seemed like we had a few things in common. Oh, how pictures can be deceiving! Neither date looked ANYTHING like his picture online. One guy even told me that his picture was 10-years-old! So, to help you guys (and girls!) out there who are also in the online dating world, here are a few profile tips to help find you your real match. [Read The Rest Of This Entry]
Singlegirlie is a cool dating blogger from the West Coast who I follow quite often. When I asked for guest posts for men, she was one of the first to jump up and promise a post! She wrote this post, which I felt is a great follow up to a post I wrote about on the same subject. You can read her blog on http://singlegirlblogging.wordpress.com
When @singlecityguy asked what advice I’d give to men about women, my first thought was, “Don’t listen to advice!” Okay, okay, that may be a bit much. Nevertheless, I am very skeptical of any person who doles out advice, claiming to be a dating “expert.”
What makes one a dating expert anyway? To my knowledge, no university offers a degree in dating (although in my college experience you’d think I could’ve earned one). So what is it, someone who’s currently in a successful relationship? Someone who dates a lot? Someone who writes a blog about dating? I don’t buy any of it. [Read The Rest Of This Entry]

We’ve all heard the adage “nice guys finish last”. Unfortunately, sometimes it is true. What can be done to protect yourself against Too Nice Syndrome? How can you be nice and finish first? The eFlirt expert is here to help.
Women want a nice guy with an edge, not a nice guy who is a push over. It’s a fine line but if you can achieve the perfect balance, you will be completely irresistible to the female gender. One tip? Women want to feel cute and sexy. Guys often get so caught up impressing their date with sweet gestures that they don’t make her feel like a sexy mama, too! Needless to say … [Read The Rest Of This Entry]
