5 Reasons Why Women Should Complain Less

Bitch, bitch, bitch. How often do you hear your girlfriends complaining about their lives? Face it, ladies. We like to complain. In fact, we speak in complaints. It is how we communicate. While it may work just fine when we’re around other women, it does not work with men. If you want to form a closer bond with the man in your life, you need to dial down the complaints, and learn to speak in a language he understands. Here are just a few pointers on how to communicate more effectively with your significant other:

1. MEN HATE COMPLAINTS: The words “why” and “you” in any combination will set your man on the defensive. Eliminate phrases such as “Why won’t you…”, “Why can’t you…”, and “Why don’t you…” from your dialogue. Men are competitive creatures, and when challenged they will often fight. You can still win your point, by using a different strategy. Turn complaints into compliments, by phrasing your complaints as compliments, by saying “I love it when you….” or “I really appreciate it when you…”. You get more bees with honey.

Trick?

Last week I wrote a blog called Three Reasons Why Not To Dress Like A Ho. There is one time of year when dressing like a ho is not only acceptable, but the common theme—at least in Los Angeles—and that’s Halloween. It may have all started with Hugh Hefner’s annual Halloween Party at the Playboy Mansion, where women parade around in costumes fabricated entirely of bodypaint, but it seems that slutty Halloween costumes are the norm for LA women. I confess, I have done this myself. Last year I went as a sexy female Elvis, the year before I was a sexy school girl (with a priest as my date), and the year before that I was a slutty Sarah Palin.

I'm not going to lie. I chose my previous sexy costumes because they were cheap and easy—not unlike how I looked in them. In keeping with the theme of cheap & easy, here are three slutty Halloween costume suggestions that are sure to get a laugh, or at least a little attention:

Kim Kardashian: If you don’t have black hair, grab a cheap black wig which are plentiful at costume stores this time of year (due to the popularity of witches), wriggle into an inappropriately short dress with a plunging neckline, and go to one of those $10 or under jewelry stores and get the biggest fake diamond ring you can find. If you don’t have cleavage or a bootie, four partially filled balloons will . Of course, you could end up being mistaken for Cher.

5 Physical Deal Breakers For Men

A few weeks ago I addressed the 5 Physical Deal Breakers For Women: Bad Breath, Greasy Skin, Ugly Hands, Nasty Feet and Excess Body Hair. All easily rectified with a little regular grooming maintenance.

Men also have their deal breakers when looking for a woman. I know, it seems most men are looking for the perfect woman with the perfect face, the perfect abs, and the perfect perky breasts. But, according to a recent survey I conducted, these are the top five physical deal breakers men have when looking for a girlfriend:

UNDER WEIGHT: That’s right, ladies, men don't think thin is beautiful; women do. Men find anorexic-looking women, or as I call them tits on a stick, unattractive. Skinny is not sexy. Toned is sexy. Moreover, men don’t want to hear a woman complain about her weight or hear her say she's fat. So, grab a club sandwich with extra mayo and get that body fat up to a healthy 24% and lift a few weights while your at it.

7 Great First Dates in Los Angeles

First dates can be boring and awkward. Two people who hardly know each other sit across the table from one another and play twenty questions. Sometimes a date can feel more like an interview for the CEO of a Fortune 500 company by an executive recruiting firm than a prelude to romance. If you’re bored with the traditional dinner date, it’s time to take dating out of the restaurant and into the outdoors. Doing something ‘out of the box’ on a date can take the focus off running through the compatibility checklist and put the focus back on having fun. Not to mention, if the conversation is dry or hits a silent patch, you’ve got other things to do. Here are a few ways to get the fires going in an unconventional way:

1. Paddle Board in The Pacific: In Marina Del Rey or Malibu, you can rent a couple of paddle boards and get out on the ocean. It’s affordable, fun and the negative ions will wipe out any first-date negative energy. In Marina Del Rey at Mother’s Beach, you can visit Poseiden Stand Up. Rates start at $40 for 2 hours and classes are available at $120 for an hour and a half. Or, drive 15 minutes up the coast to Malibu Surf Shack where boards are $45 for 2 hours; wetsuits an extra $10. For the really adventuresome, take surfing lessons together. Either way, you’ll have a whale of a good time, forget all about being on a date and really learn what the other person is made of when they fall off their board and into the brisk Pacific Ocean. Do they laugh or complain? Do they get up and try again or do they quit? You’d be surprised what you can learn about someone when they’re out of their comfort zone. After paddling around the bay, have a drink and appetizers on the patio of The Malibu Beach Inn and enjoy the sunset. If your date goes really well, you can always get a room!

Sexy Shoe Diaries - Part 3

It's Friday... and that's not just Friday here on Lennie Ross Writes. It's Shoe Friday! Every week I feature a pair of shoes from my closet. Yep, that means I own over 52 pairs of shoes, and since I've been doing this for a while, I think the number is higher than that!

Click your heels three times and say "There's no place like Hollywood." That's right, Dorothy. We are not in Kansas anymore and neither are these blue sequin and satin Jill Stuart babydoll pumps. 

I got these babies 8 years ago at Bloomingdales and they are still in mint condition. Why? Cause I don't want to wear them out, so I rarely wear them. Crazy, huh? They came in black too, and boy do I regret not getting those. If only they came in red, then I could be off to see the Wizard.
