Creative Ways to Meet the Man of your Dreams!!!!

Head to Argos – Yes Argos and straight to the Elizabeth Duke counter with yourself. You may ask why?! Well to buy a faux engagement ring of course!! Then when you go on nights out makes sure to wear the ring on your engagement finger! This is because the male specie feels more comfortable when they know you’re not available!


Take up smoking for the night – I don’t encourage smoking but the banter craic always tends to happen in the smoking area so get yourself a pack of Marlboro’s or Vogue menthols if you want to be cooler! Even if you’re not partial to that social cigarillo. Not alone is the smoking area a great place to meet people, it’s also a great opportunity to use your new chat up line, ‘sorry could I borrow your lighter please’!! So simple but yet ..Oh so effective!

Invest in Coco or Jean – Coco Chanel is the most alluring smell since the creation of sliced bread along with Jean Paul. A man will be drawn to you purely because of your scent. They will flock to a sensual scent!

Embrace the props –With Halloween coming up. Time for dress up! Get invited to dress up parties especially if they’re in houses. House parties are the way forward. Maybe go as Cinderella and use you’re lost shoe as a conversational starter! Let’s not forget Christmas is coming and there will be plenty of mistletoe on sale! Keep a stash in your bag so you’re always prepared! Embrace the seasonal props!

Recite a few sporting sentences – Yes learn a few rugby/ golf/ cricket/ football players’ names. No need to go overboard and over exert yourself but just pretend you’re passionate about at least one of them!!  Maybe pick the most seasonal sport. I find the BBC the best website to glance at on Friday lunchtime ahead of after work drinks! Alternatively just ask the nearest male specie in the office about the sporting fixtures for the weekend ahead!

Always have a pipeline – I reiterate this point again and again but this is imperative people!. Pipelines give you the non availability factor. The non availability factor is more enticing than being readily available like a microwave meal. Don’t put your meals all in one basket, they may go stale!

Go forth and conquer!!!
