My FourSquare (Bizarro) GirlFriend

Foursquare is an web application that helps you find new ways to explore the city. The more you check into your favorite restaurant, coffee shop or gym, the more points you earn. Every restaurant, coffee shop or favorite place will have special discounts or freebies for those who check-in the most and eventually become the mayor of the place.

Free side at Burgers House, Free beer at Southern Bar, Ann Taylor: 15% off for checking in and 25% off if you’re mayor for example.

My Bizarro FourSquare Girlfriend

I began to think; “How this Foursquare has it all wrong if I use my girlfriend point of view about relationships and couple’s communication”. Here are my findings;

  • I DO have to check in with my girlfriend and tell her where, when and with Whom at least twice per day
  • SHE doesn’t necessarily have to check in with me. Even if I asked her to
  • I DO have to invite her to whatever I’m doing after I have Checked In.
  • SHE will not be interested in joining me 80% of the time
  • I DO NOT get a discount or freeby or points after check-in with her several times per day
  • SHE just don’t want to have sex, have a headache, pay for anything and it is always my fault

Instead of using Foursquare to define your relationship use it to pick people up

Foursquare has a Ratio Finder is a map showing men/women or women/men ration for different places. There is something to be said avoid basic rules of marketing; high demand, low competition.

Here are some findings;

  • Yoga places have a 89% female attendance.
  • Museums across the board tend to have more guys checking in (surprisingly)
  • Ben and Jerry’s has a 75% attendance of women. Especially during those days
  • Nearly every Hotel Bar has more Guys

Are You Using Foursquare To Avoid Your Ex? Well that is a topic for another day

No Smooch Signals

no smooching signals

After my Smooch Signals blog post I received an email from a Guest Writer. I thought it will be great to share what she has to say. Read the following article about written by our guest writer Denise. She has a comedic and interesting angle on what’s women’s reaction to his advances and attempts to kiss you.

She begins describing her pop observations from films, movies and TV shows;

“I have been watching the TV technique…not that that’s any reflection of reality. But anyway, most of the time in the movies, the woman puts her lips very close to the man’s lips (after some appropriate pause in the conversation). Continue reading

Smooch Signals

Smooch SignalsLast night I was at a get together with my friends comparing notes about the dating scene 20 to 30 years ago versus today. The question came up about when to kiss a woman. Well, that is the wrong question. The real question is; how to know when she is she ready to be kissed. You need to know how to interpret the signals.

Don’t go for the kill
“Does a cheetah ask a gazelle if it is ready to die?” This is the mentality that will get you a slap in the face. Most guys will wait until the end of the night, impatiently, to make that sudden, slippery move; the undesirable forced-smooch-with-violating-tongue kiss. There are some signals that need to be properly interpreted;

Her Signals

  • She gets rid of the chewing gum
  • She glances at your lips while listening to you
  • She starts by looking down. Then, without words, she holds your gaze for a few seconds with a demure smile. Then, look away. Continue reading

9 Dating Tips for Guys

Dating Tips for Men

Difficulty: Moderately challenging (especially for some guys out there; geeks, frat boys, for example).

1. Timing is everything – There will be certain days of the month in which you are going to be a jerk anyways, no matter what. Therefore, always wait until she decides when to go on a date. Be her friend in the meantime, and never push for a date.

2. Dress nicely – The average woman changes her clothes four times before she leaves the house. Don’t embarrass your date by showing up mismatched.

3. Be considerate – Call if you’ll be late. If you don’t show up, don’t expect another chance. You are screwed.

4. Be careful with the compliments -“You look nice,” gives a woman no information. “I love your shoes,” wins extra points. Continue reading

15 Ways He (should) say(s) I Love You

i Love YouWe already discuss in our previous post; 7 Ways She Says I Love You. Today, we are going over a few ways He says I love you. Women usually look for the actual phrase and expect their partners will say it; “I love you”. But men are usually not very communicative or expressive when ever it comes to their emotions. Therefore, they find other ways to express love.

  1. “No, you don’t look fat in those jeans”
  2. “I love your short hair cut”
  3. “No it’s perfectly fine that you cut off your long, silky waist length hair”
  4. “I was only noticing how fat she looks in those jeans” Continue reading

No Low Fat

no low fat

Female intuition … I could write book about it.

The sixth sense we guys haven’t developed because we are so preoccupied thinking about sex we missed the sometimes too obvious signals.

On the other hand, women are never pre-occupied with sex. They know is not really a challenge. Now, the challenge for women is; from who are they gonna get their next mind blowing orgasm followed by tender spooning, soft kisses and caresses. Instead, they usually get a snoring guy after two minutes performance of fireworks sex. Some snap, crackle, pop for him. Some guys might deliver the lite version; snap and pop. Continue reading

Spring Basic Attraction

Flower Garden

Last night I was watching Sharon Stone flashing a detective in the movie Basic Instinct. Naughty, naughty girl.
This movie was a big hit in its time because of that scene. I asked myself;
What is it about mini skirts and going commando we guys like so much?
What are those features we find so attractive?
It was kind of a trivial task to me. So, I decided to do my research about what women find attractive in men.
part 1

Women love subtle physical contact. Think about it, dancing is a feast for the senses. That subtle, after shave smell, looking into your partner’s eyes, the taste of your chewing gum, the music and the touch of the bodies along with the rhythms. Women find guys who can dance, confident, romantic and fun. But please, dance to the rhythm; 1 … 2 … cha, cha, cha! … 3 … 4 …. cha, cha, cha! Continue reading

He Says, She Hints

She might be hinting you of something she doesn’t like

Hints – The encrypted way of women to metaphorically ask for something

Last night, a friend asked me for some advice on how to understand men. Well, as we all know understanding men is not an easy task. As a representative of the male gender, I have to say, yes it is difficult to understand men but slightly easier than understanding women.
Hopefully, I didn’t push the buttons of those feminist women out there with that comment above. Anyways, as I’m trying to explain to Marisa the psych of men and how much more simple than women think it is, my thoughts started to come together :

After some more observations on human behavior, discussions, squeezing the stress ball by my desk, making fist-size paper balls and shooting a few into a trash can nearby, I decided to begin a perhaps controversial series of articles that I’ll call; Women on the Second Floor


The following might or might not represent the author’s opinion on whatever he is writing. The purpose is to look at life from different point of views, NOT to insult anyone. So, DON’T take it personally. There might be some strong content but I’ll try “PG thirteening-it” as much as possible. For example, instead of the penis I’ll replace it by a little banana word.

Of course, there will be always someone who is gonna come up to me and say; “why did you write that warning about not taking it personally? Are you taking about me?” Exactly my point. All right, let get started, go crazy, stupid or whatever the Black Eye Peas say. Continue reading
