10 Online Dating Mistakes Dudes Make

The ladies at TheFrisky.com have come up with a list of the top 10 online dating mistakes men make. Here are a few tips from women who should know:

1. TMI. We don’t want to know about your ex-wife, your bankruptcy, or your feelings of masculine inadequacy. If you’re neurotic about it, leave it out.

3. Bang-Bang. Make it clear you’re out for a one-night-stand? With few exceptions, we’re happy to show you the door.

4. The Dealbreaker. There’s a difference between knowing what you want and having a list of criteria no woman could meet. Keep it real.

Flirting With Hot Chicks is Good For Your Health

Flirting with an attractive woman is not only fun, it’s also good for your health. That’s the finding of a new study that measured the hormonal impact of flirting on men.

Researchers at the University of California studied 149 male students between 18 and 24 years old. A third of the group talked to a male researcher while the others interacted with coeds aged 18 to 22. The psychologists then took a saliva sample from the men to measure hormone levels.

The scientists discovered that a mere five minute talk with a hottie boosted testosterone levels by 14 percent and cortisol – an anti-stress hormone – by a whopping 48 percent. Both testosterone and cortisol are associated with alertness and well being.

In contrast, the guys who spent time with the male researcher showed drops in both hormones.

Researchers have long known about a similar effect in animals, called the “mating response”. The University of California scientists carried out their study to see if humans experienced the same hormonal boost.

Other studies have shown that married men or those in long-term relationships have lower testosterone levels than those still searching for a mate. Scientists believe that when men find women attractive, their brains send signals to the pituitary gland, boosting production of testosterone.

So you might just be better off chatting with your hot women friends than hanging out at the bar with your buddies.…

A Dating Site for Beautiful People Only

What if you went on a dating website and every single person on there was a stunner? That’s the concept behind an exclusive dating site called Beautifulpeople.com.

To join the site, you must submit a photo of yourself and allow the existing members to rate you. The ratings range from “Yes, definitely”, to “Hmm, yes OK”, to “Hmm no, not really” to “No definitely not.

If the members think you’re hot enough, then you get entree. If not, tough luck.

Only one in five people who apply for the site gets accepted. The site was launched in Denmark several years ago, but has now expanded to the U.S., Britain and Japan. It has accumulated 180,000 members worldwide.

Apparently Brits have the hardest time getting accepted to the site. Only 12 percent of British men and 15 percent of British women who have applied to the site have been accepted as members. In contrast, two-thirds of Swedish men and a whopping three-quarters of Norwegian women are approved.

As if being able to date a bunch of hotties wasn’t enough of a come-on, Beautifulpeople.com promises that those few who get in will get access to “glamorous parties, a jet-set global network” and “potential contracts from top modeling agencies”.

If you don’t get accepted or just don’t feel like applying, Beautifulpeople.com has a preview feature that lets you browse around and see what you’re missing. After spending some time poking around we can confirm that, yes, people on the site are definitely above average. Are they all “10s”? No, but there seem to be more hotties per member than most other dating sites we’ve seen.…

Make Her Want You More by Being a Perfect Gentleman

Want all the girls to want you? It’s time get medieval then! Being a gentleman will make her want you more than ever before!

The art of dating is complicated and often riddled with mystery and intrigue. Mixed signals and poor communication (verbal and non-verbal) can be enough to turn her off, and that fire you felt in the first few dates will quickly fizzle out!

For many modern men, it can be difficult to actually determine what women want. The reason is quite simple.Not all women want the same thing. Some women are looking for love, others are looking for a casual fling. However, the one constant factor that all women are receptive to is the way in which you treat them.

Chivalry Is Not Dead (Yet)

Originally, chivalry was a code observed by Knights, which determined how they behaved both in battle, and in their everyday life. As time has progressed, the term is now used to describe courteous behaviour, particularly from men to women. Being a perfect gentleman is using the modern version of the code as a guideline for how to treat women. Men often seem to confuse chivalry with being a nice guy (we all know that nice guys finish last), but really it?s about treating women with the respect they deserve.

So what is the modern code of chivalry for 2008?

Opening doors

Now maybe it?s just me, but this is a very simple act. Common sense and courtesy would say that you open doors for anyone ? male or female ? that is coming through it in front of you or behind you. Everyone gets annoying at the person who lets a swinging door close in their face! With respect to your date, I?d extend this to opening the car door for her as well. It?s just a nice thing to do and she?ll lap it up!

Pull out her chair

This is another traditional gesture which is just common courtesy. When you?re at dinner with her, pull out her chair and push it in for her as she sits down. This also extends to other simple acts such as offering to pay for the meal and surprising her with flowers. Just do it with class and sincerity, and not because you think it is expected.

Pay attention

How many times have you stared into space while your date puts on her coat? If you could snap out of your day dream for a second, you?d realise that you could offer to take her coat and put it on her yourself. The added bonus here is if she has long hair. You have to lift the hair up with your hand or forearm so that it doesn?t get caught under the collar. You may not get the impression that she noticed but, trust me, she did!

Ask her opinion

There was a time when it was considered chivalrous for the man to take complete charge. He chose the meals, …

The Art Of Flirting (And How To Do It)

Is your best pick up line “You must be a keg, because I wanna tap that ass?” If so, you need to learn to flirt like a real man. Now.

A lot of men struggle with the basic concept of flirting. I’ve seen it myself with friends looking to hook up with a girl in a bar who tried everything in their tired and clich?d arsenal of pick up lines. Believe it or not, the following quote is not going to help you get the girl:

My love for you is like diarrhea, I just can?t hold it in. Source: CO-ED Magazine

The main problem guys have with flirting is that they relate it directly to sex. If I flirt with the girl for long enough, she’s more likely to have sex with me. Women, on the other hand, view flirting as nothing more than some harmless fun with no determined end-game.

The differences between male and female flirting

Dutch-born psychoanalyst Manfred Kets de Vries blames the male super-ego. “A man behaving selfishly will ignore the implicit conduct of flirting in the blatant pursuit of sex.” He’s basically saying that if we were in a cave, the man would fling the woman over his shoulder and stomp away.

As far as human behaviours are concerned, flirting is the one that confuses us most. According to evolutionary psychologists flirting is man’s way of engaging pleasurably with a member of the opposite sex, with the ultimate goal of reproduction. Now call me crazy, but most men looking to pick up a girl are not thinking about having children with the woman! Regardless, women view flirting as a way of checking out the merchandise without compromising their virtue. So women use flirting to get attention, and men use it to initiate sex – but how do you untangle this web of crossed wires?

The key to flirting successfully

You’d think that common sense might help you to flirt more successfully, but you’d be wrong. And here’s why. Dr Antonio Darmasio, MD and head of neurology at the University of Iowa, claims that the reason it all goes wrong is because the process of flirting actually mimics brain damage. “The limbic system, responding to a cue that says ‘this person is attractive’, overrides the neo-cortex. Therefore, for a brief moment, we are completely out of control.” Now this quote won’t hold up in court should you ever get too out of control with a girl but it does explain why we struggle to flirt.

Understanding the brain’s response to flirting should help us to engage with women on their level, rather than as a covert operation to get naked with her! Here are some ideas for flirting successfully without coming across like a sex-crazed lunatic:

Keep contact to a minimum. Nothing is more powerful in the flirting world than well-timed and placed body contact. Touching a woman should be the same as using your aftershave. Use With Caution! If you overdo it, you’ll appear …

Five Signs She Likes You (But Is Playing Hard To Get)

Reading a woman’s body language will give you many visual clues which hint that she likes you (but might be playing hard to get). Find out how to read the most basic open gestures of body language in this article.

Following on from the previous article Five Signs She Doesn’t Like You (And Will Break Your Heart) we can now look at the open gestures which are usually a good indication that she’s interested in you (but is possibly playing hard to get!).

The Five Open Gestures

Gesture 1 – The Butterfly

The butterfly is the gesture she makes after you’ve made eye contact with her across a crowded room. Essentially, the eye contact is a call-to-action. You want to see some sort of reaction from her to show that she is interested or attracted to you. Playing with her hair, adjusting her clothes or jewelery, and fiddling with her straw in her drink are all butterfly reactions. If you get any of these signs, she may well be interested in you.

Gesture 2 – The Palm Reader

Exposed wrists and palms are signs of openness and sincerity which she will present to people she is interested in. Subconsciously, she is saying “If you want me, come and get me”. This is very similar to The Pointer, whereby she will “point” at you with her foot or knee (when her legs are crossed).

Gesture 3 – The Leaning Tower of Love

This gesture can be seen when she leans forward towards you. Her upper body will be facing you if she’s interested. In essence, she will lean forward and point at what she wants. Unlike the tower of Pisa, this gesture means she is not made of stone! (Too cheesy? Maybe..)

Gesture 4 – The Cheshire Cat

This is a bit of a no-brainer. If she smiles at you when you make eye contact, get over there immediately and strike up some conversation. She is very keen.

Gesture 5 – The Midas Touch

If she is touching you a number of times while you are talking, for example, tapping you on the arm when making a point, she is very interested. She’s probably not even playing that hard to get at this point, so go in for the kill!

Obviously, there are many different gestures and signals which show her interest in you, but learning the basics now will allow you to pick up the more complicated signs easily later. Once you understand the science behind body language, the gestures mentioned in this article are common sense and can be applied to many different situations in all aspects of your life.
