Advice for Men on Getting to Date Two

How to find her and make her yours!

The secret?

Silicon Valley has thrived from men and women leading with their cerebral intensity. When it comes to matters of the heart, that intensity doesn’t always translate to finding love!

advise our male clients to get out of your head! When dating, it’s very easy to get stuck in your head and having a million thoughts and questions running through your head i.e. “Is she into me? Should I ask her out again? Is she enjoying the date? What is she thinking?” 

Remember that this takes away from you being fully present. When you are on a date and thinking about how to get to that second date – just be frank. If you like her, let her know. If you want to see her again, let her know. It’s really a lot simpler than you think – so, get out of your head, be present and 

man up to the dating challenge of actually not playing games. In other words, tap into emotion. How are you feeling? Women are looking for a man who is not only very smart from an IQ stand point but who has at least some self-awareness and EQ.  

Beyond this guys, while on the date, you must be attentive. This goes along with getting out of your head. When you are fully present, you are engaging in the conversation, picking up on signals, paying attention to details of the conversation, making eye contact, being aware of your body language, and complimenting her.

I am always astonished at the number of men who feel they don’t need to pay a compliment. Yes you do! These women make an effort leading up to the first date. She might get a nice mani & pedi, buy a cute flirty dress, and take dating seriously. A compliment disarms a woman, puts her more at ease, and creates a recipe for potential romance.

By getting out of your head and being attentive to your date, these are the baby steps towards achieving your personal goals at landing the woman of your dreams.

Taking A Gamble

A week ago, I felt an urge to pull into the local Shell station in the burbs and to walk into the convenience store and, for whatever reason, to buy a lottery ticket. When do I ever do this? Never. I bought two $1 California Scratchers and was so excited to bring them home, grab a penny, and scratch away… to see if I won anything.

I won! The first $1 ticket I scratched, I ended up winning $20. This, my readers, has never happened. For the second one, I didn’t win anything. I can’t tell you how secretly excited, like a giddy school girl, I’ve been about my winnings.

Last night as I drove by the same Shell station on El Camino in Menlo Park, I did a quick U-turn and pulled right into the station to cash in my winnings! I proudly marched into the shop and the girl scanned my ticket and looked at me, wide-eyed, amazed at my winnings and noting how she has never met a winner… ever. She complained that she always buys tickets but has never been so lucky as I had been.

With my car practically drained of gas, I thought why not apply my big $20 winnings to a quarter tank of premium gas. As I whisked away out of the lot, I felt particularly “Bond like” and definitely bad ass with my free gas and being so strangely satisfied from something so simple as a $20 winning Scratchers ticket and a slightly full tank of oh-so expensive gas.

You can apply my spontaneous, do-something-random approach to gambling to your dating life. The message here is invest a little time and energy into someone that you might really like. Dating and finding the right relationship means letting go a bit, it means sacrificing certain things, being vulnerable, and boldly putting it out there if you feel a connection.

It can sometimes feel like the odds are stacked against you in the competitive world of dating and in trying to find “the one”. You won’t know how lucky you are unless you give in a bit, are confident in yourself, and walk into that next date of yours with the “he or she could be my lucky jackpot and I’m willing to jump all-in and see” attitude.

Life is uncertain. So is gambling. Dating doesn’t have to be. I recommend that you wear a safety belt when you drive, but that you take a lot more risks in trying to find love.  Be a hardcore stats person and try to game the system like an intelligent “gambler” would, and increase your chances of finding love today by declaring this to be your winning year.

We have very favorable odds here at the Linx casino. In the last 6 months, one of our married couples is now expecting a baby, another couple gets married next weekend, and we have countless couples who have declared their exclusivity after their FIRST or second Linx introduction.

We Moved Offices!

We moved offices from Palo Alto to Menlo Park and are part of an exclusive artisan community situated in a residential neighborhood. Our new office is so much more elegant, rich with history, pretty, and very spacious. 

I first thought I would miss my old Palo Alto office since I was there for over 5 years but haven’t regretted the move at all.  My old space had yucky carpets, pesky neighbors, and was tiny! Plus the parking downtown Palo Alto was often a headache.

The new space is so calming and totally “Linx.” The living room area where meetings are held is a color palate of soft hues of greens and my office/den is a color palate of reds with accents of blues- the perfect passionate nest to create romantic matches for our clients. We are by-appointment only and typically do our meetings Monday-Thursdays. Parking is very easy, wine is served, candles lit, music soft, and conversation is always interesting (and of course, highly confidential).
