When is a Date a Date?

When is a Date a Date?

There is a large contingency of women in our country who don’t know when a date is a date. Oh, I wish I was joking. I truly do. I don’t pretend to understand the phenomenon, I can only report its existence. Gentlemen, you too need to be aware of this should you wish to avoid … Continue reading

The Reverse Facebook Block

The Reverse Facebook Block

If the Smooth Reentry blog were to end today, its legacy will be introducing the world to the Reverse Facebook Block (RFBB). The Reverse Facebook Block is an outstanding concept all social media users should become familiar with.

Do Women Get Friend-zoned?

Do women get friend-zoned? If so, why don’t we ever read about it? My personal opinion is that women do, in fact, get friend zoned. Believe it or not I have put women in the friend-zone. The conditions are ripe for me friend-zoning a woman when she is still emotionally connected to different guy. When … Continue reading

Neckties, tissues, love-notes, and self-respect; all things girls on The Bachelor lost down their cleavage this season. Woe!

Facebook: The Anti-Social Network.

This is a rant… OkCupid has a new site called Tallygram. Tallygram is a fairly cool app. It plugs in to Facebook and let’s you answer questions similar to OKC. I  enjoy comparing my answers to other FB users, and examining the corresponding friend/enemy percentages. [Incidentally, since I eat meat and like dogs over cats, … Continue reading

Do Coffee Dates Work?

Naturally I read this article shortly after scheduling a coffee date with a woman I’d really like to impress. [Murphy’s Law strikes again!] My date is scheduled for Starbucks no … Continue reading

To Cologne, or Not to Cologne…

Traditionally, I have never worn cologne. It just isn’t my style. But recently I was recalling a woman I dated many years ago who begged me to wear cologne as she loved it. If all women were like her I would bath in it every day. However, apparently not all women love cologne. While on … Continue reading

A Cougar With No Claws

Let me introduce you to Nancy. Nancy is the woman who asked me out. Yes, SHE asked ME out. It was pretty gutsy of her to tell you the truth. Her assertiveness paid off too… I started talking to her on POF. I was goofing around on the laptop, looking for a distraction while in … Continue reading

How Many Pictures to Include in a Dating Profile?

Here is my Question du Jour: How many pictures can one post on an online dating profile without coming across as a narcissist? In my opinion the best profiles not only show what the person looks like, but also pictorially depict what the person’s life is like.  Too many pictures and you come across a self absorbed narcissist. Too few … Continue reading

The Art of the Facebook Block

One of my guilty pleasures is the Stuff Mom Never Told You Podcast. On a recent episode they ask, “Can you be Friends with an Ex?”. As usual, hosts Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin do an excellent job of examining the issues involved with said topic, including siting relevant scientific studies on the subject. Sometimes they … Continue reading

A Flattering Mention

A Flattering Mention A fellow blogger I am flirting with (trying to flirt with at least) mentioned our conversation on her blog.
