Announcement: R&W will be implementing a summer schedule which will include new posts Monday - Thursday. Jax will be taking long weekends for the next 3 months.
She's real pale, in need of a serious tan, and craving summer cocktails....
Jax has been single for a whopping 8 months now.
I’ve been on a few dates here and there, but, for the majority of that time I was on a man-cation.
A mancation is a period of time where you swear off any interaction with the opposite sex short of friends.
Well, I’m declaring this mancation over! I’m ready to get back in the game.
I made this decision a few weeks ago, when I jumped back into the scheme of things real quick.
My eyes are wondering and I’m totally ready to pounce! Watch out…
I decided that this announcement was so huge, that it was worth a phone call to my grandmother.
She laughed and said “My grandchild. The one that has the attention span of an ant.” What gives, Nanny?
Other than her sarcastic comment, she started blurting out various words of wisdom to take to the heart.
10 Great Dating Tips from my Grandmother.
Because no one knows better than Nanny!
Let the boys chase you. Forget this “hear me roar” nonsense and embrace patience.
It's true that any guy who is genuinely interested will make a significant effort to get your attention.
2. Eyes & Smile
Learn how to flirt using only your eyes and smile. Be approachable yet busy.
Makes sense. Too approachable screams “I’m easy”. To busy screams “I’m not interested”.
3. Shoulder Tap
When chatting up a man that you’re interested in, quickly touch his arm or shoulder in conversation.
Men respond to affection. Got it! It’s letting them know I’m intrigued without actually having to say it.
4. Voice Volume
Keep your voice at a decent volume. Too loud screams aggressive and too soft screams push over.
Nanny says: Ladies don’t yell when they’re angry. They make their point and then dish the silent treatment.
You could be the prettiest girl in the room yet be ignored because of insecurity. Walk tall and proud.
Confident women usually have a few things going for them, or at least know how to fake it!
Always nonchalantly drop hints of your fantastic cooking skills. Cooking equals wife material.
Everyone always says a man’s stomach is the key to his heart…
Don’t give it up too easily. Men like a woman who respect themselves and demand it from others.
Ladies, do the granny panty trick. You ain’t going to take your pants off if you’re rocking those!
8. Indirect Demands
Drop hints of how you require chivalry. Men should open doors and allow you to walk in front of them.
How exactly do you do that nonchalantly? That will have to be lesson #2.
If you like a guy enough to meet up again, don’t be so readily available. Let him know that you have a life.
Got it! So create a schedule and then pencil him in. Easy enough!!
10. No Exceptions
There are no exceptions to any of your "rules". Don’t make any excuses, no matter how cute, smart, or rich!
Ohh, you hear that boys??? I can’t let you slide!! Not even once!
What great advice did your elders pass along to you?
