This One's On Me

I read an article recently called There's No Such Thing As A Free Lunch written by Simone Grant for Simply Solo which got me thinking about what men and women think about who pays for the date. I know what I think: the man pays. Why? Because while women are looking for men they can rely on, men are just looking to get laid. Controversial? You betcha! The truth often is. 

Whether emotional, financial, or a combination of both, women want the security of relationship. They want a man who is hard-working, goal oriented and reliable. Courtship, pursuit and romance are sexy and gentlemanly and instill confidence in a woman. When a man is courting a woman, he should demonstrate his ability to care for her. If he cannot or will not pay for dinner, he is not good relationship material.

Sure, there is an expectation of sex when a man goes on a date with a woman. But, there’s an expectation whether he pays for the meal or not. Men want sex.

If The Bra Fits

You may have seen my video blog "If The Shoe Fits" on why women love shoes (if not, check it out). Today, I'm here to discuss "If The Bra Fits". Women struggle with so many issues - our weight, our bra size, our skin, our age. The pressures society places upon us are overwhelming. We're supposed to be anorexic thin like Natalie Portman and virtually every young Hollywood actress, and perfectly shaped like a Victoria's Secret model. We're expected to be career women, mothers, sex kittens and more. With our busy lives, we don't always have time to primp and preen, and if we do too much beauty maintenance, we're condemned for that! Sometimes it feels like we cannot win. Ultimately, what women want is to feel feminine and sexy. In this video, I visit Sara's Lingerie in Studio City, CA and discuss how lingerie makes a woman look and feel sexy and confident - with or without her clothes.

You’re So Vain…  

You probably think this post is about you. Don’t you? Don’t You? 

Carly Simon, I feel your pain, girl. I've got some clouds in my coffee, too!

In the 1988 movie Beaches, Bette Midler’s character, the cynical, struggling entertainer CC Bloom says “Enough about me. Let’s talk about you. What do you think of me?” A great line from a great movie. Not only is it a great line, but it pretty much sums up dating in Los Angeles. I can’t begin to count how many times I‘ve gone on a date with a man who talks about himself the entire night, never asking me a single question about my life.

This happened again the other night. I had accepted a date through a personalized dating service. They call me about once every three years, whether I want them to or not, to inform me that they have found my ideal match. Yeah, right. And if so, what took you so long? But, in addition to being the world's greatest cynic, I'm also an eternal optimist and a firm believer that dating is a numbers game, so I figured why not? In retrospect, I can think of so many reasons why not. Like, I could have spent the evening drinking a bottle of Peter Michael Chardonnay alone and reorganizing my lingerie drawer. At least that would be fun!

The Top 7 Bedroom Moves That Will Rock Her World

Author Matt Titus recently wrote an article called The Top 5 Bedroom Moves That Will Rock His World for BettyConfidential.  Being a rather sexual woman, I tend to agree with Matt’s suggestions – they are all moves that I’ve employed and they have proven highly effective. But, maybe that’s because I employed them all on the same night. While Matt’s advice is for how women can rock a man’s world (don’t we do that by just agreeing to have sex with him?), I thought it might be useful for my male readers to hear how they can rock a woman's world in the bedroom. So, I asked a few friends and a loyal readers, and of course drew from my own experience, and here’s what I have come up with.

Which Came First?

A friend of mine has an old style t-shirt - the kind you would buy at Crazy Shirts while on vacation in Hawaii. Only instead of saying ‘Hawaii Hang Loose’ or ‘My parents went to Hawaii and all they got me was this stupid t-shirt’, it has a cartoon of an egg and a chicken in bed smoking cigarettes with the phrase ‘which came first?’

The expression got me thinking – not so much about which came first in regard to chickens and eggs, but which came first in regard to the inconsiderate jerks and gold-digging whores who dominate the Los Angeles dating scene – and from what I’ve heard the dating scenes of New York, Miami, and several other American cities.

The Morning After

Okay, you got her to spend the night at your place. Now you want to make sure she keeps coming back. Great sex alone may not do the trick. Watch my video blog on how to make a simple breakfast that will knock her socks off and keep them off. The great thing about this breakfast is most of the ingredients stay fresh a long time and are easy to keep on hand - just incase she spends the night. Here's a list of ingredients you will need:

  • French bread
  • 2 eggs
  • milk
  • butter and/or canola oil
  • coffee
  • tea
  • 4-6 valencia oranges
  • half bottle of champagne
  • real whipped cream (in a canister)
  • Fresh strawberries, blueberries, raspberries
  • cinnamon (optional)
  • powdered sugar (optional)
  • maple syrup (optional)
