All This Advice on Attracting and Keeping a Man

Have you ever noticed how there are scads of advice for women on:

* How to get a man.

*How to keep a man.

*How to deal with a man when you’re mad at him.

*How to get your man back.

*What to do and not to do on a date.

The list is endless. Now. I’m getting a little miffed at the responsibility always been place on OUR (that being us girls’) shoulders. I’d LOVE to see some advice for men for a change and I think it’s time the focus shifted. I may just start a list of things that men should be aware of in attracting and keeping a good woman.

Life is a two-way street, after all.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

Lately, I’m viewing my singledom as a turning point in my life and once again have launched into the world of the dreaded…online dating sites.  Although I’m making a valiant effort to not fall into old and annoying habits, it’s not working. It’s pissing me off and I don’t like it one bit. Clearly it’s time to give myself a stern talking to. Ok. Here goes. I hope I pay attention.


Stop being such a putz. Stop checking your email every 5 seconds to see if anyone has left you a message. They haven’t, they won’t and it’s for the best. Get over it. Stop worrying what your picture looks like. If they don’t like it, that’s their problem. It’s cute – so …get over it.

These are the things you should be doing. Do, work on your writing. Do, believe in yourself. Do, focus on your career. Do… remember that what’s meant to be is meant to be.

Get over it and move on with your life.  It’s time to turn over a new leaf.
