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.

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...

Some time ago, I was watching Jim Carrey on the Jay Leno show. Hilarious as always, Jim became very thoughtful when Jay asked him what he attributed his success to. Jim Carrey then told the most remarkable story . . . He explained that when he first arrived in Los Angeles, he was doing his best to launch his career as a standup comedian....

SUNDAY. MAN MAGNET WEEKEND DAY 3. We Man Magnets dive into our studies on the early side Sunday morning. Around 10am. Peering over my cup of coffee, I can see that the other Magnets are feeling similar to me – hungover. Not from raucous behavior the night before, but just somehow wiped out by all it took to elevate ourselves to our magnetic best...

Thinking back to when I was single and dating, I totally disliked the awkward hello when meeting someone for the very first time out in public. Shaking hands felt so odd to me (especially when others were looking), say at a restaurant or bar. In fact, I would often text message my date minutes before they arrived asking if we could give each other...

He then went back in search of the mother-lode. He dug and dug but couldn’t find any more gold. He decided to give up and sold his equipment...
