iPee

Long before George Costanza announced his invention of the iToilet app on the Seinfeld reunion episode, I had thought of this very concept. Having driven from Los Angeles to San Diego on many occasions, I’ve learned exactly where to stop for a clean bathroom and where not to stop. I have even taken to keeping a Starbucks paper cup on the floor of the passenger seat of my car—for roadside emergencies.

As a woman, peeing is a very big part of my life. It’s something I do often, and something I do well. While drinking three liters of water a day may have something to do with it, I’ve heard that women also have smaller bladders than men—or at least intolerance for a full bladder. Like Peter MacNicol’s character John Cage, the quirky Senior Partner at Cage & Fish on the acclaimed TV series of the 90s, Ally McBeal, I like a fresh bowl. I also like a clean bathroom, one that smells of flowers and candles not bleach and stale urine.

Man Days

To the men who read my blog: Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Valentine’s Day has come and gone and many of you are probably thinking, “Whew, dodged a bullet with that one.”  Yes, we women can be tough as nails when it comes to special occasions. As I mention in my video blog Three Dates A Man Should Never Forget, Valentine’s Day is rather important to us women.

You may think we celebrate being women every day by pampering ourselves with manicures and pedicures and by getting our hair done or by going shopping, but we are still big on marking special occasions and Valentine’s Day is one of them. Sure, it’s a Hallmark holiday, but it’s OUR Hallmark holiday. We know you hate it. You have to put on a tie (okay, so that’s not the case with all men), you have to plan a weekend away, buy jewelry, or at the very least take us to dinner and give us a few dozen roses and some chocolates. You may even have challenge your penmanship and write a card.

Wouldn't It Be Nice? (or... would it?)

I was thinking of a certain man... not a specific man... as much as a type of man I have come across repeatedly...over and over again... during my time in Los Angeles... the type of man who is at the top of his game... successful, in his 60s, and according to him "in his prime". He has everything he could desire... except for that one woman to share it with...the perfect woman...she is eloquent, beautiful, graceful, a size two, 110 lbs, with an amazing body and rock hard abs. She's in her 40s, natural, no synthetics, no fillers, and looks like she's in her early 30s. She is Sasha Grey in the sack, Martha Stewart in the kitchen, and your BFF in every other circumstance. She is for all intents and purposes Wonder Woman.  And, it made me think of this song by the Beach Boys:

Wouldn't It Be Nice...

Wouldn't it be nice if we were older

Then we wouldn't have to wait so long

And wouldn't it be nice to live together

In the kind of world where we belong

5 Physical Deal Breakers For Women

Men have their deal breakers and they usually go something like this: overweight, underweight, out of shape. Most men are looking for the perfect woman with the perfect face, the perfect abs, and the perfect perky breasts. My question to them is quite simply, “Have you looked in the mirror lately?”

Women can be just as particular when it comes to physical deal breakers in a prospective partner. While we may be able to deal with little love handles or a receding hairline, there are some things we just cannot look past. Here are the top five physical deal breakers for women and how to fix them:

1. Bad Breath: Bad Breath is the number one thing women find repulsive in men, and 50-65% of people suffer from it. To keep her kissing you, use a Sonicare toothbrush to clean those hard to get places between teeth and under the gums, floss daily and brush within 20 min after eating EVERY time to avoid plaque and tartar build up. Use a tongue scraper with Breath RX  or toothpaste to kill bacteria.  Avoid mouthwash—it contains alcohol (alcohol=sugar=bacteria breeding ground). Quit smoking.  If you’re doing all the above and still have problems, they could be coming from your stomach. Eat parsley before a date. The oils will neutralize bad breath.  Also try taking a once-a-day acid reflux medication.

Three Dates A Man Should Never Forget

Let's face it, men forget a lot of stuff. They forget to put the toilet seat down. They forget to wipe their feet before they enter the house. They forget to put the cap back on the toothpaste. All of these things drive women nuts. However, I think most women will agree with me when I say that if men remember the big things, it's much easier to forgive them for forgetting the little things.

Watch my video and learn the 3 dates a man should never forget. And when I say dates, I'm not referring to the hot blonde cheerleader from high school who you hooked up with under the bleachers:

3 Questions Women Ask Men

When a woman meets a man, she wants to determine whether or not he's relationship material. There are three questions she always asks: What do you do for a living? What kind of car do you drive? And, where do you live? Don't be offended guys. Sure, these questions all point towards financial status, but there are plenty of other reasons she's asking these questions.

Men like talking about themselves. It makes them feel relaxed and confident. These questions allow the man to talk and take the pressure off the woman doing all the talking, which can make her look like a “chatterbox.” She may not be sport savvy enough to talk about the Final Four or the NHL Playoffs, and she may want to avoid a heated political debate about the Middle East or the mid-term elections. And, she knows you don’t want to talk about shopping! Asking about your work, car, and home are ice-breaker subjects that are easy for you to talk about and also interesting to her.
