Signs That She Likes You A Lot

Are you interested in settling down with a gorgeous girl from your neighborhood? This is a wonderful idea since it will eliminate the feeling of being alone. However, you have to understand that there is a risk she isn’t going to like you.
If you get the feeling that she isn’t interested in you, it is pertinent to take steps to change things. If she does like you, you’re on your way to having a steady girlfriend. The good news is that you can find out if she likes you without too much trouble. Below, you’re going to discover signs that can tell you that she likes you.
Laughs Often
You may consider yourself to be a funny individual. If so, you likely enjoy telling jokes to your buddies. Well, you have to understand that some of your jokes aren’t going to be funny. With that being said, you should pay close attention to the girl’s laughter. Is she laughing at everything you say? If so, she is likely chuckling at things that aren’t funny. This means that she is interested in you romantically. If the girl doesn’t like you, she isn’t going to laugh at your stupid jokes.
Calls Often
Another thing to note is that a girl who likes you is going to be eager to speak with you. They’ll call and text you frequently. If the girl doesn’t care about you, they’re not going to be eager to get in touch. Therefore, you should pay closer attention to your cellphone. If you’re receiving a lot of text messages and phone calls from the girl in question, there is a good chance that she is interested in taking things to the next level.
If you’re not getting any calls, you have other options. For instance, you can check out the best cam girl sites so you don’t have to feel lonely.
Ultimately, you’re going to end up spending a lot of time with this woman. Therefore, you should pay close attention to her actions. Have you noticed that she touches you often? If so, there is a good chance that she is interested in you. If the girl touches your arm, shoulders, hand, or back frequently, this likely means that she is interested in taking your relationship to a new level. If she isn’t touching you often, she likely doesn’t want to be anything other than friends.
She Talks About It
You have to pay close attention to the things she is saying. Is she talking about relationships and intercourse? Has she mentioned anything about finding a boyfriend? Has she commented about you finding a girlfriend? If you’ve answered yes to these questions, she might be sending you messages. There is a good chance that she is talking about you and her. Well, you should go for it. You have little to lose. Open your heart and take the risk. With a little bit of luck, she is going to say yes and you’ll be able to enter into a loving relationship with the girl in question.

5 Cheap Yet Romantic Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

Whether you’re in a relationship or not!

Love doesn’t cost a thing — but keeping the spark alive sure can.

Though many romantics enjoy fancy meals, gifts, or unique experiences with their special someone, frequent wining-and-dining can add up, and quick. If you don’t want to break the bank on Valentine’s Day but the thought of another movie night or museum trip sounds like a snooze, check out these five fantastic ideas for some adventurous and affordable one-on-one time.

1. Get sporty


If your sweetheart isn’t one to sit still, fuel their fire with a sporty outing. Consider tagging along if they’re partial to activities like bike riding, hiking or yoga class, or break up their routine with ice skating or rock climbing.

2. Take a field trip


Is your special someone intrigued by a local haunt that neither of you has ever visited? Valentine’s Day is a perfect excuse to finally check out that brewery, aquarium or ghost tour they’ve been talking about.

3. Go for a drive


If you’d love to get away with your honey but can’t swing a vacation, hop in the car and drive until you find somewhere interesting to stop. Bonus points for packing a picnic, and enjoying a bite to eat al fresco.

4. Have an at-home wine or beer tasting


Throw a party for two with a wine or beer tasting from the comforts of your very own home. You don’t need to be an expert, but you do need to research what to serve and how to set the right mood with snacks and music.

5. Make a backyard bonfire


Sparks will fly during an intimate backyard bonfire complete with blankets, booze, and maybe even some s’mores. Better yet, you don’t even need to hire a babysitter for a truly romantic evening.

Rebecca – Chapter 9 – Falling

I met Rebecca 3 years ago on a date. Rebecca has recently made an appearance in my life so I thought I’d re-run this series so everyone won’t have to go back and search for her series to catch up. Enjoy!

Fall of 2016

After my last date with Rebecca, my mind was reeling. I can’t stop thinking about her. I really felt that there was a solid connection between us despite our difference in age.

I found myself thinking about her often. She seemed like the perfect girl for me, but they all do… in the beginning.

I wanted to play it cool, and so far I believe I have. The patient mentor. The consummate gentleman as always. Maybe Rebecca was finally realizing the folly of her choices and will attempt to maintain something with me.

Who am I kidding? (Only myself) She’s 21 years old and I’m in my mid 50’s. This never works. For the last 15 years I’ve been dating and having relationships with younger women. They’ve all ended pretty much the same way. They reach their late 20’s and the nesting gene kicks in. By 27 they all start to freak out that they’ll never get married and have children if they don’t lock down a solid man.

I understand this imperative, but then why do I keep ending up connecting with all of these young beauties?

I love beautiful things. I love young women. I like things when they’re new. Every relationship is like a long dinner. But you eat dessert first. Then after that it’s just one long meal that never really gets any better.

Instinct and social norms drive the decisions of all of these twenty something women. Most relationships in their twenties fail, and they either finally find what it is they want in a man, and mature a bit themselves… or, they simply settle.

Settling. I’ve seen it happen so many times. It’s easier to settle and simply surrender to what society tells you you should do, rather than keep going and possibly end up alone. Most people can’t stand to be alone. Why is everyone so lonely?

“All the lonely people. Where do they all come from?”Paul McCartney

I’m never lonely. I’ve always enjoyed my time alone. It gives me a chance to recharge my mental batteries so that I can be the charming bon vivant that you all know and love.

I loved my ex girlfriend Michelle. (You can read her full series on phicklephilly. It’s quite good.) She was my best friend. We started out as co-workers. Everybody loved her where we worked. The sweetest and most beautiful woman in the entire company. We hung out, fell in love, moved in together, she wanted to get married and have kids, I already had Lorelei. That ended it. The great thing was that we remained friends even after the love affair failed. We actually made better friends than lovers.

But that was 12 years ago. I’m a lot older now and as we all know, nothing gets better or prettier as it ages. (Maybe a really good cabernet, but that’s it.) But here I go again. Falling for a lovely, sultry babe half my age.

Funny, how I can enter into each relationship already knowing how it’ll end. The first couple are heartbreaking because when you first enter into these things you’re new at it. You think it’ll work. Actually, that thought never enters your mind. You simply feel the dopamine drop in your head and you launch into it like a teenager.

But as each relationship unravels and falls apart you become better at the process. You’ve already prepared for the relationship’s ultimate demise. You love them and have a wonderful time. All of the romance, stolen kisses, flowers, gifts, and sex are all part of the game. The best part is always everything leading up to the sex. Don’t get me wrong, the sex is always spectacular. (Who doesn’t like driving a new Ferrari every couple of years?)

But in time it begins to fall apart. But you’ve planned for this. So by the time it ends, I’m actually relieved I no longer have to be their partner. I like to be alone and begin to look forward to that time.

Then it’s over and I no longer feel a thing.

That’s pretty empty.

But that’s what I am now. Maybe I’ve always been that. It just took my entire adult life to realize that relationships simply don’t work for me. I like the attention of several women and fall in lust/love on a daily basis. It’s like I’m some sort of beauty addict.

I don’t mind, because I know that’s what I am. I like to keep life interesting with constant evolution. I can’t imagine being trapped in some sort of exclusive relationship. Trapped like an animal in a cage, but the whole world has been brainwashed into thinking they won’t be happy if they don’t stay married and will die alone.

I came into this world alone, and I’m all good with going out the same way.

I have no use for stuff and possessions, least of all possessing another person. The things that turn me on the most is events. Meeting a dear friend for a drink and a meal, or the rush of having a few cocktails with a really pretty young woman.

I suppose the mistake I’ve made is allowing the women I’ve been with think that I belong to them.

I’ve died several times in captivity. But like the Phoenix, I always rise again.

I love my ascension. It’s extremely liberating. The cleaner and easier the break, the more I like it.

Some may say that I seem shallow. Call it what you will, but that’s simply your opinion and you’re entitled to it. You have your beliefs and I have mine. And if we’re in a relationship I’ll let you believe that I buy into your fairy tales of endless love.

It simply doesn’t exist for me.

I enjoy a simple uncluttered life that’s easy to manage and I allow you all to visit me here at my discretion.

I can’t wait to see lovely Rebecca again. She possesses that “certain something” that just lights me up. When she enters a room, I feel the engine ignite and I fire on all cylinders like a race car. My mind and libido roar to life like I’m 18 again.

I need to text her and set up another date.

Fingers crossed!

25 Unexpected Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

On Valentine’s Day, the last thing you want to do is get stuck in a Netflix and takeout rut—or, worse, end up at a cheesy, overpriced, and decidedly unoriginal prix-fixe dinner. Whether you’re single, coupled up, or somewhere in between, ensure your V-Day is free of clichés with these non-boring ideas, below.

Have a Bonfire


If you live in the suburbs, grab some marshmallows, chocolates, and s’mores, then spend the night cuddling up by the fire. Bonus points if you can make one on the beach.

Chocolate Tasting and Truffle Making

Instead of buying crappy chocolates from the drugstore, sign up for a masterclass in chocolate-making. If you’re in the tri-state area, spend the night learning directly from the pros of NYC’s Roni-Sue’s and bring home 12 delicious truffles to eat in bed.

Proceeds from the class will support the Waterkeeper Alliance, which “aims to preserve and protect water by connecting local Waterkeeper organizations worldwide and promoting outspoken, citizen-led advocacy. “


Not at the club—we mean real dancing. You can take a class, hit a salsa club, or go see live music that makes you want to groove. For the former, we suggest something like the Valentine’s Day Dirty Dancing Party in Chicago.

A Ghost Tour

The convenient thing about ghosts is that they tend to hang around old cities everywhere. Bonus points if you find a spooky event that includes booze like Portland’s Haunted Brewery Crawl, which comes with beer samples and a guided tour. (Two awesome reasons to sign up.)

Ice Skating and Après Skate

There’s a reason why couples are always hitting the rink in our favorite rom-com’s—you’re pretty much guaranteed to get close to each other. Once you’ve had your fill of the ice, you can enjoy some hard-earned drinks. (Hot toddies, anyone?)

A Wine Bar Crawl

Instead of sticking to just one spot, hop from place-to-place and order different kinds of wine and tapas along the way. It’s waaay more interesting than a boring ol’ sit-down dinner. Of course, it doesn’t hurt stashing one away for later too.

A Scavenger Hunt

You can make up your own, complete with creative challenges, photo missions, and sexy prizes.

A Night at the Museum

When museums stay open after hours, they tend to spice things up by throwing a party or holding a special event—especially on V-Day. Take an after-dark art tour for two like the one offered at the Guggenheim complete with chocolate truffles and champagne, accompanied by live music.

A Themed Dinner and Movie Night at Home

Watching Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck fall in love in Roman Holiday is definitely more satisfying when accompanied by a big plate of homemade spaghetti and meatballs.

Go to a Basketball or Hockey Game

Use the night as an excuse to cheer on your favorite teams. For the more competitive couples, take a bet on the winning team and see who’s really buying dinner for the next week.
