Is She After Your Money?

Golddigger is such an ugly word, but it's the one major thing that many guys these days are scared of, especially if you have major cash to blow. If your new date fits the bill for the majority of the things listed below, watch out! It's probably not your company she so enjoys, but rather, your cash flow!

1) She chooses a 5 star steak house for your first date.

2) She lives a highroller lifestyle yet has no real job that you know of (she attributes this to "generous parents"....riiiight!).

3) She only seemed interested once the valet pulled up outside the club with your Beemer/Mercedes/Corvette.

4) She perks up when you mention that your family has a vacation home in the Hamptons.

5) All of her major long-term relationships have been with guys who made at least 6 figures (or sure spent like they did!).

6) Walmart is not in her vocabulary.

7) Her idea for a "fun" second date was hitting up the local high-end shopping mall, where she "accidentally" forgot her wallet at home.

Valentine's Date Ideas


Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and planning the perfect date for your significant other is on everyone's minds.  For those looking to think outside the box, check out the date ideas below to have a Valentine's Day that your guy or girl won't soon forget!

1) Picnic on the lake.  Instead of a picnic at the lake, have one on the lake by renting a boat or canoe to take out to the lake for the day, with a picnic basket full of goodies for the journey out.  Bring a basket of finger foods (cheese, fruit, crackers, chocolate-covered strawberries, etc.) and a few candles to be lit while on the lake (held securely and safely in candle holders/containers that won't easily knock over and catch fire!).  This is ideal if you live in an area that isn't too cold during the day this time of year; for those in areas where the weather would be too cold for this, skip to number #2.

Is Chivalry Only for Men? I Don't Think So, Ladies!

By Jennifer Tardy

Whether a man is opening the door for a woman, sliding the chair away from the table so she can sit down, paying for her dinner on the first date, giving up a seat for a her, or simply allowing the woman to enter the elevator first, these are all common examples of chivalry. Whoever said chivalry was dead, clearly doesn’t live in the south where it is still alive and kicking.  Every single day, I’m experiencing chivalrous acts by men—most of whom I don’t even know!  This was beautiful to me—until I started reading some studies created around chivalry…

This concept of chivalry has really been the focal point of many studies done in the U.S. over the last few years.  One study suggests that “chivalrous behavior is a subtle yet harmful form of sexism, known as benevolent sexism.  The term was coined in 1996 by the first study of this kind, which showed that men who exhibit signs of chivalry often exhibit signs of hostile sexism as well (i.e. thinking of women as less intelligent, weaker creatures whose place is in the home).”

Even though this study is alarming, I am still not willing to have a traditional burial for chivalry.  I still love and appreciate it.  So this got me to thinking.  There must be a way to have my cake and eat it, too.  That’s when the concept of the chivalrous woman came to mind.  If studies are suggesting that men see us as inferior simply because they are being chivalrous to us, why can’t we simply return the favor and even the playing field—or at least get out there and play the game?

If chivalry is to remain, we have to adjust our actions and reactions, in some instances.  Men want to see that not only are you appreciative of their actions but also that you are able to return the favor; you are able to become a chivalrous woman.  No one is asking for you to throw down your coat so that he can walk over a puddle, but there are many ways in which you can still be that beautiful, feminine lady that you are and still show him chivalry.  Below are eight suggested ideas!
