You know the saying “first impressions last a lifetime”? Well, it’s true and it even applies to online dating message writing. We’re most impressed by guys who actually read our profile and ask us questions about things we’ve mentioned in it. Crazy idea, I know! If you avoid these 10 common (and disastrous) phrases guys often send to ladies online, you are guaranteed to have better luck and get more responses. Keep reading »
Don’t judge me by my Android phone, Match.com! I resent the fact that a new study done by the online matchmaking site claims that Droid users are the loosest of all Smartphone owners. I quote: “Androids may be the newest Smartphone on the market but their users have already been around the block.” from a recent blog post which details the findings of this cellular study.
According to their research, “62 percent of Android users have sex on the first date and are most likely to have a one night stand, at 55 percent.” Oh, that’s great. Now I have to hide my Droid so my date doesn’t believe I’m just down for a quickie in the bathroom stall of a restaurant. Keep reading »
I am not afraid to admit that I have had two online dating accounts — one with Plenty Of Fish and another with OK Cupid. I have been messaged by hundreds of guys, which lead to three dates, and absolutely ZERO luck. I feel like I’m in one of those Lucky Charms commercials. Whoever my Mr. Right is sure knows how to use his “marshmallow magic” to hide in the sea of uninteresting, not cute enough, too shallow or completely skeevy men who have barraged my inbox with messages.
All of this disappointment has me wondering, am I just too picky? Today I found the answer: Yes — but it’s not my fault (whew!). Thanks to a CNN Health article called “Dating and the Challenge of Too Many Choices,” I now know that when people are faced with too many options (as most ladies are in the online dating world), they tend to choose none at all.

No date for Valentine’s Day and not afraid to do something desperate to get one? For $300, $700, or $1,200 you can pay for a membership package on PersonalDatingAgent.com to help you find that special someone. And luckily for you, the “initial setup fee” is free until Valentine’s Day! Whoopie!
So, how do you go about deciding which package is right for you? First it’s a question of finances. How much money do you have to spend on an incredible dating service with a plethora of testimonials by young professionals (James, John, Sarah, and Elizabeth) who claim to love the site that “does all of the work for them”? I personally think I’d go with the “executive package.” For only $1,200 I would be guaranteed 4+ dates and services including predate advice, stylist advice, concierge service and a professional photo shoot.

Oh hey, who’s that with the great bouncy waves? Wait, that’s me! This morning, I appeared on “The Today Show” with my spirit guides, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, to talk about online dating. I was joined by Ian Kerner, a sex and relationships expert and the author of the book She Comes First, one of my favorite sex advice books. Richard Simmons does not make an appearance, but our interaction before the segment gave me an additional boost of energy and excitement. (In short, he fluffed me.) Check it out!
