There Are Certain Things You Shouldn't Suggest - Part I

"So, can I get your number so we can grab a drink sometime?"

"Sure." I proceed to give 'Doug' my number.

"Great. I'll call you sometime this week."

"Ok. Talk to you later."

Two days later, Doug calls and we make plans to meet up for a drink at a local pub the following week. Then, date night rolls around...


"Hey {Dauntless}, this is Doug. How are you?"

"I'm doing well, thanks. So, are we still on for tonight?"

"Actually, I'm pretty beat tonight with my weekend traveling and whatnot. I'm planning on making a little snack and having some wine though if you'd like to come over."


"Uhhhh, no. I don't think so." I'd kind of like to keep my innards out of the Cocoa Puffs.

How odd!

Why arrange a date and then not be bothered to leave your sofa?? And I'm absolutely with you on the not-going-to-his-place-when-you-don't-know him thing...

I think that's just bad form. You should date someone, then break up with them, then wait a respectable amount of time before asking for a booty call.

Attraction Explained: Your Social Circle

Our social circle is one of the biggest determining factors in who we meet. Going back a bit, in a 1956 study 70% of married American couples lived within 20 blocks of each other before marriage. Now admittedly that was 1956 and this is now, but the basic principle holds true - you're more likely to find success with someone closer to you than you are someone further way.

So, how do we use this to improve our chances? Simple - we expand our social circle!

1) Network, Network, Network
2) Organise a night out, invite all your friends, tell them to bring friends
3) Join a club. A sports club, a movie club, a dinner club, a sex club - whatever you fancy!
4) Don’t try and jump into an encounter or relationship with every attractive person you meet.
5) Put people in contact with each other.

In this day and age, a girl has got to be out of her mind to go out on a "first date" to the guys house. Just too many crazies lurking about. You made the right decision. If he is legit, he'll call again and you will go out to a nice, Public place.
