Dating Tips for Suddenly Solos

One of the more amusing books about late-in-life dating is “Confessions of a Middle-Aged Babe Magnet: One Man’s Brave Adventure into Dating Again in the 21st Century” by Chad Stone.  In it, he provides some very usable advise for us Suddenly Solos .  Here are a few nuggets:

- To be a babe magnet, you must believe you are a babe magnet.

We’re talking about projecting self-confidence here.  There’s a fine line between self-confidence and arrogance. Practice so that you don’t cross it.

- Being a lewd jerk doesn’t impress babes.

- Figure out what women want and do it.

Stone’s advice is very specific: “Make the phone calls.  Send the emails.  Initiate the contacts.  It’s what babe magnets do, and it’s what women want.”

  • Embrace social opportunities where males are likely to be outnumbered by females.
  • An ordinary opening line delivered with confidence and genuine charm is better than a really great one-liner delivered with creepiness.
  • The man always pays for the first date.
  • If you can’t impress the babes with your classiness and sophistication, at least make them laugh.
  • When you meet the real McCoy, don’t blow it.

Unless you want the rest of your life to be measured in conquests, know when it’s time to stop the hunt and enjoy the relationship.
