First Date Conversation: Top 5 Dos and Don’ts

Posted on October 28, 2010 with No Comments

Bad dates happen. And more often than not, they’re caused by someone saying something they shouldn’t have. Even a perfectly nice person can make a mistake and say something completely inappropriate that ruins a date.

It’s really very common, in fact.  Especially if you haven’t dated in a while.

With this in mind, we’ve developed the following list to help guide you.


Don’t talk about past relationships. Your date doesn’t want to hear about your ex (and the problems with your previous relationships).

Do pay attention to your date – his/her interests and hobbies. Stay in the present.


Don’t allow your discussion to turn into an argument.  Stay away from controversial or potentially heated topics, like religion or politics.

Do be respectful of differences.  If your date mentions a belief that you disagree with, find a way to discuss this openly without criticizing. Or, if you can’t do that, change the topic.


Don’t over-compliment.  Telling a person they’re attractive once is flattering. Saying it 8 times in an hour is creepy.  Furthermore, don’t compliment your date in a way that makes her/him feel self-conscious.  ”You have lovely eyes,” or “that color looks nice on you,” are both respectful.  ”I can’t take my eyes off your amazing body,” is less so.

Do say something positive or kind to your date.  An honest and simple complement will put them more at ease.


Don’t put yourself down. A little self-deprecating humor is fine, but whining about your failures at work and your inability to stay on your diet are not OK.

Do have a sense of humor about yourself. You’re not perfect, and you don’t have to pretend that you are.


Don’t brag about yourself. Confidence is sexy.  But a person (man or woman) talking endlessly about their achievements comes off as arrogant, not confident.

Do project confidence. Give yourself a pep talk before the date and feel comfortable mentioning something (one thing) about yourself that you’re proud of.

How To Marry A Rich Man

Posted on October 26, 2010 with No Comments

We all have dreams while we are growing up, mine was always to marry a rich man.  Unfortunately, I didn’t achieve my dream, but very fortunately, I married for love not money and am happy I did.  I may have had to get the odd payday loan in the days of bringing up the children and struggling on one wage, but isn’t that what most normal young couples have to do?  Anyway, eventually, things get better, the kids grow up and become adults in their own right, the mortgage gets paid through hard graft and life is more settled with pay day loans decreasing as we get older. 
But if you don’t want that sort of life, if you would rather marry into money and have it all given to you on a plate, then how do you find a rich man?  A specialised dating site is a great place to start.  You will be able to view the profiles of hundred of rich men.  You can get to know them a little better by contacting each other through the site before you give out any personal details such as address or phone number.  Once you trust the rich man, you can arrange to meet.  He will probably choose a very upmarket venue, as, after all, he is loaded.  You need to make sure you look your absolute best, so go and treat yourself to a makeover.  Look on it as an investment, as if things go how you plan, you will be able to afford these every day in the future.  Choose something subtle to wear, but also classy.  Depending on the rich mans age, you don’t want him having a heart attack on your first date!  So anything too flirty is NOT applicable at this time, leave that to the next date! 
When you meet your rich man, do not let him know that it is only his money that you want, but make him feel special.  Tell him how handsome he is and how clever he must be to have reached such a high status and be able to bring you to such a beautiful place.  don’t go on about it too much though, let him believe that you are very used to going to such up market bars and restaurants.  Don’t chat too much, as he will think you are nervous.  He will want to talk a lot about himself and how he has made all his cash, so listen inventively and be very interested, even if you really are not.  Flash your gorgeous long eyelashes now and again and give him a few cheeky grins, he will like this a lot.  If the evening goes well, do not go back to his if he asks, but give him a gentle kiss on the cheek and thank him so much for a beautiful evening, you would really love to do it again sometime.
Hopefully, when you get up the following day, there will be a knock on your door and 12 amazing red roses will be there when you open it.  It is possible to meet a rich man that you do actually like and even fall in love with.  These relationships work all the time and I hope yours will be one of those soppy happy ever after love stories.  But lets face it, if he doesn’t turn out to be the man of your dreams, so what!  There will be a lot of compensations along the way!
