Stop Making Men Work So Hard!

Man sweats from working so hard for women
Do you remember the '80s band Men at Work? Here's what most women do.  They give out their phone number to a guy that they're interested in. Then they make him work like crazy just to go get a date. Stop the madness. If you give a guy your phone number and he texts you, respond immediately. If he calls you, call him back. Allow him to set up a date. If you have plans to curl your hair or get waxed, changed them. If you’re hanging around with friends on the night he wants to take you out, cancel your friends. You can drink wine and talk about failed relationships with them another night. Read more

Top Reasons to Rethink Online Dating & Work With a Matchmaker

Woman rethinks online dating and considers finding a matchmaker
Before finding a certified matchmaker many people try online dating, and I understand why. Online dating seems easy and accessible. You turn on the computer, sign up, and the browsing of eligible singles begins. Unfortunately, although it seems like a great medium to meet new people, online dating comes with some major cons. Photos can be out of date, people are often dishonest on their profiles, and the cost and time spent on the site quickly adds up due to the amount of sifting through profiles involved. Read more

The Lost Art of Giving an Amazing Hand Job

Many consider the Hand Job (HJ) a lost art form– an uncherished relic from Sophomore year of High School. When a BJ seems too ambitious, you give a dry-handed tug. The hand job is often done half-assed because people don’t put their hearts into it, and don’t use nearly enough lube. Man mastered the hand job on himself out of necessity. He realized around age 13 how amazing his penis is, and how no one will even think about touching it for at least two years. But even if you don’t know the exact rhythm and pressure he prefers, you have the advantage of not being his left hand, and having breasts (among other things). While the hand job might not be your go-to move in the bedroom, you should definitely give it a second chance and work it into your rotation. Sure, many guys might think, “I’ve got this, why do I need my girlfriend to give me a HJ?”  Well, those are the guys who haven’t had it done the way I’m about to explain to you. It’s just like scratching an itch. Sure, you can scratch your own back, but isn’t it better when someone else scratches it for you? (Note: Do not scratch his penis. This is a metaphor.) Read more

Should women consider plastic surgery to find a better man
I’ve lived in LA-LA land for a long time, so I’ve seen my fair share of plastic surgery—the very, very good, the very, very bad and everything in between. And because surgery is so common here—I swear there are more plastic surgeon’s offices than Starbucks in LA—I’ve been asked by a lot of my female clients if plastic surgery will get them a better man. Instead of giving them a yes or no answer, I often have a lot of questions for them. What can I say? I’m like the Cheshire Cat of plastic surgery advice. In case you’re wondering the same thing, here are those questions for you to ask yourself. Read more
