Love is a strange and wonderful thing. We find ourselves fearing it, yearning for it, and in awe of it. And most of us, single or in a relationship, find it haunting the darkened hallways at the backs of our minds; ever present … always there. Even when we try to suppress it, thoughts of love incessantly push back, trying to make their way to the surface and make their presence known. When we are in a relationship, we wonder at the quality of our relationship with our partner. We wonder if we have found love or if one day we love them and they, us. Amazingly enough, even when we know that we love someone, it is still on our minds. We still wonder at its details and occasionally try to quantify it with reasoning.

Love to date but stress over the dress? Are you a clotheshorse without a guidepost when it comes to dating and decorum? Well, dive into your closets, ladies -- this simple guide, will help you navigate the subtleties of selecting what to wear where and when to wear what.
For some people, age is only a number and has no affect on their dating life. But for others, the age of the person they are dating is a quite remarkable factor. In fact, your own age could be affecting your dating life in ways you’ve perhaps not taken into consideration. Some men and women who are in their mid-to-late-20s might like to date people who are much older than them. The attraction could be that an older date may be more financially stable, have a steady career, or have more life experience, all of which are attractive attributes in a long-term partner.
“Where are all the good guys in Miami?” It’s a question I get at least once a week. I’m the girlfriend everyone comes to for advice. The writer, the love expert, the Carrie Bradshaw post-Petrovsky type. Sometimes I wish I had the perfect answer. Wish I could reach into my Marc Jacobs bag and pull out a list of perfect dates. But the truth is, it’s hard. How do you stand out in the high-rise, stiletto wearing world that is Miami, Florida? This girl took to the streets (in a nice pair of heels) to find out.
Ladies, when you’re out on the town and hoping to attract a fellow, remember this old adage: Less is more. The simplest approach is almost always the most effective. You’ll be surprised what steady eye contact and a friendly, inviting smile will yield if you’re looking to be picked up at your next social outing. And be sure to position yourself in an easily accessible location for a man to approach you – no hiding in the corner booth or back in the shadows. If you’re putting yourself out there to meet a new man, and you have an inkling that he might be someone you’re interested in, let him know. Playing coy can only get you so far and might do more harm than good on the initial meeting. Subtly implying the prospect of some sort of future intimacy sends the message that dating is something you’d like to do.
