My Least Favorite First Date Question

I meet David at a restaurant of his choosing in my neighborhood and it’s not long before he pops my least favorite first date question. “So, Khristina . . . what kind of music do you like?” Sandwiched in the Great Book of Icebreakers somewhere between, “Nice weather we’re having, don’t you think” and, “So, what do you do for fun,” the music question is...

Dating: Can Chivalry Be A Turn-Off?

There is a moment in “300” – a movie about the fabled battle of Thermopylae in which 300 Spartans hold off a marauding Persian army of 300,000 – when the King of Sparta (Gerard Butler, handsome even in a cape) turns to his gorgeous, passionately intelligent bride (Lena Headey) who, with a barely perceptible nod of her head, gives him her approval to push the...

Online Dating: Launching My Profile

It’s time. The profile has been proofed, edited, revised, tweaked, prodded and poked. Lauren* has given me hints and ideas and blunt orders. (“You can’t say, “gentleman” there, Khristina. It sounds like you might be looking for a sugar daddy.”) I’m on the phone with Lauren and some Man Magnet friends when she ceremoniously christens the page and launches it into the world. There it...

Online Dating: Romantic Profiling, Part Two

It’s a sunny Sunday afternoon and I’m online profile-writing in a hip cafe, sipping a glass of rosé for inspiration. I’ve got the first few paragraphs done, but I now – according to Lauren’s* direction – need a section about what my preferences are. Ostensibly this is just to give my potential suitors a clue about what I like to do. It’s sort of simplistic,...

Online Dating: Romantic Profiling, Part One

Penning an online dating profile has always reminded me of writing a resume – not something I’m a fan of. The whole dance of cramming everything I’ve ever done, every career I’ve embarked on, every task I’ve accomplished on a single, tiny-fonted page, has always sort of . . . bummed me out.

Dating: When Is Flirting A Good Idea?

Day 1, Post-Lauren Frances* Man Magnet Weekend As the work day winds to a close, I haven’t made plans for the evening, but I know that I can’t just stay in. I needed to get out, do a little “flirting in the field,” as Lauren calls it. I don’t have much fear about sidling up to a bar all on my lonesome. This brand of...

Online Dating: How To Pick A “Love Handle”

Sunday 9/16 It’s day three of Lauren’s* Man Magnet Makeover weekend, and with love life goals set firm in our minds, we set out to create important elements of our online profiles. First – keeping our love-brand archetype in mind (me = “Empowered Wife”) –  we are tasked with creating a screen name, or “handle,” for the dating site.  We brainstorm individually for a while,...
