And After The Romantic Dinner?

I think I am what many consider goofy; I love to joke and make people laugh with my crazy antics, however sometimes I don’t believe I know when to cut off the campy side of me.  Or better yet I’m so goofy no one knows when I’m serious.  Case in point, I tried to be sexy for my boyfriend, and it did not work, and we are not just talking about a onetime occurrence. But this was before I read Language Of Desire, a book by Felicity Keith. You can read my Language Of Desire review here.

The first time I realized I needed to fix my problem was when we went on a staycation and stayed at my favorite hotel in Downtown Dallas.  I planned out the weekend; I bought sexy lingerie, and we had wine, the works.  The day started out with just walking around, hanging out and having fun like we always do.  We went to the bar at the hotel and had cocktails and met a lot of cool people.  That night we had a romantic dinner, and I said I would be right back.  I proceed to go to the bathroom to change into my outfit, I change and come out and try to stand in a sexy pose and my boyfriend says, “Baby I think something is wrong with the laptop”.

Now mind you I am standing in front of him with a very sexy outfit on and he is more concerned with the laptop.  Another time, we were sitting in the living room, and I decided to dance sexy for my man.  I put on some sensual music, the Pussycat Dolls song “Buttons” and I proceed to imitate Nicole Scherzinger from the video.  I start dancing and gyrating and trying to give him the sexy eye, and he starts to laugh… hard.  Since he is laughing, so am I,  and I vow to never be ‘sexy’ for him again.

What you need to know about online dating

Wasn’t long ago that hardly anyone was on the internet, Facebook wasn’t around, and online dating was just plain weird.  You sort of had to be innovative, know how to write romantic love letters, to find and keep a date. Not so these days.

Now most of us spend an inordinate amount of time online, and single men and women undoubtedly spend even longer than the average family guy.  And so relatively quickly, meeting people online has become an ordinary way. In fact, some would say the default way, of meeting singles.  It is so much quicker than joining friends of friends and hoping for new people to show up at work.  You have access to vast databases of other singles who all want the same thing as you.

Not all dating sites were created equally.  There is an abundance of terrible sites out there, set up by wanna be entrepreneurs with no clue what to do.  And then there are the really, really good ones that know precisely what they’re doing and have been doing it well for over ten years now.
