If only it were this easy
In your article “How to: Conquer the Bar Scene” (“Love: A Field Guide,” February 2008), you suggest approaching a girl and asking for her number or e-mail. This is the worst thing a guy can do. A man should always give a woman his number, or she will question his excellence. Asking for a woman’s number is bad for several reasons:
1. It puts her on the spot.
2. If she is interested, it makes him look needy.
3. Women have been the choosers (and therefore the real pursuers) for 40,000 years. Guys usually do not let women pursue.
4. If a woman thinks a guy is more interested in her than she in him, it’s over buddy, no attraction.
5. Women love a guy with the confidence to not pursue. It puts them at ease and comfort.
Give out a good energy for no reason at all. Then you become super attractive. When you put out a good energy, fashion, conversation and finding someone fall easily into place.
Great February edition! I have been interviewed and featured in a couple of your magazines as an interior-design expert. Now, I am hoping to get featured as a “Sexy Single.” Could I be considered in your next singles article? Basic stats: Never married, no kids, 34, CEO, travel (a lot!), 5’5”-ish. Come on. Help a girl out.
Since Jenifer was a good sport about letting us print her letter, we set up an e-mail account for her, like we did for our other singles. E-mail her at email@example.com. (And don’t be creepy, guys.)
Reader correction of the month:
In your February issue, there was a short article about Claddagh Irish Pub that refers to “St. Patty’s Day.” This misspelling has previously appeared in your magazine. While this is minor, and this mistake appears often in other publications and ads elsewhere, it is a pet peeve of mine. So, for the record: “Patty” is short for Patricia, and, therefore, feminine; “Paddy” is short for Patrick. In Gaelic it’s spelled Padraig, and is the masculine version. Thus, it should be “St. Paddy’s Day” when referring to St. Patrick’
