Dating Advice and Tips for Twitter Dating a Gemini:

Gemini’s love to communicate, and also make great listeners.  They also tend to be great multi-taskers.  Twitter is a great tool for them to combine these three qualities. They can satisfy their need for learning, laughing and maintaining multiple conversations.  Do keep in mind that they enjoy intellectual and witty conversations. They are best matched to someone with a steady, strong personality who will enjoy their butterfly socializing, yet will still be there for them when having a bad day.

It might be a little difficult to start this date up.  Since they tend to fall in love with people who stimulate their curiousity & intelligence it’s a perfect time to show off your skills by using some witty twirting & ice-breakers.  Be patient, once the Gemini has warmed up you might just get what you were looking for. They will act cautiously while they get to know someone and will open their heart little by little.

Gemini’s like to speak, to communicate, to meet different people, (can you say Twitter, anyone?) to travel and to be in motion. Gemini’s ruling planet is Mercury, the planet of communication. Gemini people are very curious and their mind always requests more information. Gemini’s are likely to have large Twitter followings and to communicate with many of them as often as possible, and are likely to host many tweet-ups.

Gemini Dating Tip:

Break the ice by creative twirting, being sure to use open-ended questions that allow them to shine with creative and witty responses.  Most Gemini people cannot stand aggressiveness; they will escape from rude people and tense situations. Keep it light-hearted and avoid stalking them!

Are We Really Looking for Perfection? –

Are We Really Looking for Perfection? –

Are We Really Looking for Perfection?

Posted by Noreen Ruth, May 20th, 2009

Ask anyone how important it is that they find the ‘perfect’ partner and you will discover that most were looking for compatibility – not perfection – someone who accepted them for who they are and not who they wanted them to be. And although compatibility can be assessed it is ultimately determined by each individual.

Perfection is an undefinable characteristic because it is relative. The perfect person to me may be completely unacceptable to you. And as we age our expectations change so that the ‘perfect’ person either needs to change along with our needs or they will no longer fit the bill.

Beauty & the Beast

Perfection encompasses all the factors of human interaction and attraction (gracious, generous, kind, social, intelligent, etc.), but our outward appearance is the first attribute that is considered if someone is looking for a ‘perfect’ mate. Many women believe that men expect nothing less than perfection in the looks department and understandably so. If you’ve ever glanced at any of today’s popular men’s magazines, the women you’ll find there are unbelievably beautiful and portrayed as ready, willing and able to accommodate anything a man may want.

It’s a superficial guy who looks past every good looking woman, determined to hook up with a beauty. This jerk needs to be reminded of the Venus Flytrap that attracts its prey by its beauty – only to consume it. Outer beauty can cover up a host of negatives.

But just because a guy appreciates a beautiful woman doesn’t mean that he won’t fall for an average looking gal. The fact is that most men never expect to hook up with a woman who is over-the-top attractive; they’re looking for an authentic, confident woman. Beauty is never a reliable indication of character. A woman who is aware of and willing to expose her imperfections, who balances the desire to improve herself, yet is accepting of her current status, is more endearing to most men than a woman who is putting on airs of perfection.

Womens’ Lib & the Average Dude

On the other opposite end of the spectrum, the media would have us believe that women are so empowered by their liberation that they are indifferent to the attributes of the average guy, holding off until the perfect man comes along. But that’s just not the case, women are looking for a well-balanced, steady, reliable guy, with looks being low on their list. A man that can accept and appreciate her intelligence, show respect for individuality and makes her feel special doesn’t need to be perfect – he just needs to be willing to work at their relationship.

Looking Beyond Appearances

If you aim for perfection, you’ll find that it’s a moving target; the truth is that it doesn’t exist. All we can see is the surface of the people around us and very little of what is happening underneath. The best we can hope for is to be perfectly loved. Unquestionable trust, commitment and devotion are traits that crosses gender lines. And to be honest, perhaps it’s good that no one is perfect; perfection would be boring. All of our little imperfections make us unique.

Twirting: Everybody’s doing it – or are they?

May 20, 2009

One of my recent Twitter posts, How to Twitter Flirt, received an unreal number of views!  This got me thinking – just how many people are using Twitter to spark romance?  It’s so easy, many do so without even realizing it!

Twitter flirting is the first step to a romantic Twitter relationship.  Relationships are made and broken every day with this powerful site.  The decision – to twirt or not to twirt, is one not to be taken lightly.

So I’d like to know – just how many are already Twirting?  Answer the question using the poll below, and next week I’ll be doing another article about the results.  Be sure to send your friends here too – the more people respond the more accurate the results!

Making the First Twitter Date Special

May 15, 2009

You added your profile to and found several matches.  You tweet a couple of simple hello’s and one comes back – kissing“I’ll be off work at 6 tonight – let’s plan to tweet more then”.  You tweet back – it’s a date.  Now what?

On Twitter, as in all online dating, you must rely on your personality and wit to shine through your typing skills.  You need to say what you want to say in 140 characters or less, and you have no body language to help.  How do you make that first Twitter date special? With the apps that are out there a Twitter date can be very similar, although virtual, to a real date.  Here are a few tips to help make it a date to remember!

  • Dress Up. Since no one will actually be seeing you, you may be tempted to tweet in your jammies and hair curlers.  Dressing up and looking good will get you in the mood.  You’ll feel more sexy and romantic than if you’re sitting in your flannels 🙂
  • Send flowers. Of course you won’t have an address yet, but a picture of flowers will go along way too.  There are quite a few great apps that allow you to send pictures and videos on Twitter, click here for a great list.   Send a picture of some fresh flowers, or a picture of you holding those flowers out as if to give them away.  Make this your opening tweet at the time of the date. It’s sure to put a smile on your dates face!
  • BubbleTweet. Do a quick video using BubbleTweet, an app that lets you send a short 30 second recording to send on Twitter.  Say hello and how much you’re looking forward to tweeting. Another great reason to dress up!
  • Send a song. It’s fast & easy. Fun, romantic, whatever fits your mood and style that night.  It just may become “your song”.
  • Use DM. Unless you want to share your date with everybody in your networks, use DM.  It will be more private and you can feel comfortable being a bit more personal.
  • Cheat. No, not on your date – but if 140 characters just won’t do there’s a great app called TwitWall.  In fact, you can also use it to send your pics, videos, etc..   Login with your Twitter ID, your tweet will go in the “what are you thinking” box and the extra content in the “Tell More” box.  The tweet will then link to the extended text. Pretty cool!

Using the tips above will help make your Twitter date a great and memorable experience! Above all remember to have fun and be safe.  This person may or not be your future Mr. or Mrs. – but they could still end up being a life long friend.  Here’s to Twitter Love!

Dating Tips: 5 Easy Ways to Make Men Smile — Yahoo! Personals

Dating Tips: 5 Easy Ways to Make Men Smile — Yahoo! Personals.

As someone who can barely calculate a tip, I don’t have much to add to the conversation about our tanking economy. But I would like to share one little piece of wisdom I picked up from my favorite social economists: you can’t buy me love. Corny but true. Don’t believe me? Try one of my five patented Romance Enhancers — if you don’t think they’re more effective than a gift card, I’ll send you a full refund.

More Dating Articles from Glamour:

#1: Touch His Arm

There are a lot of ways to subtly let a guy know you’re into him, like maintaining eye contact, playing with your hair, and smiling a lot. But the only one that sends shivers down my spine is when a girl touches my arm during conversation. It always surprises me, and it’s always great.

#2: Send Him a Random Text Message in Midday.

OK, this might not be free depending on your cell phone plan, but it’s still a great value. Nothing breaks the monotony of a long workday like a flirty note from someone special, and unless his job is super-intense he’ll have plenty of time to daydream about you.

#3: Ask Him a Question About Something He Knows a Lot About

Dating news flash: Guys like to show off for you. So if your dude could use an ego boost, there’s nothing like letting him feel like an expert. Ask him about fishing, the 1983 Chicago White Sox, or the mating habits of the Guyanese Bullfinches — whatever he’s into. Just remember to nod frequently and look really interested.

#4: Give Him a Very Specific Compliment

Telling a guy he’s funny, handsome, or smart is always appreciated, but the really meaningful compliments are the ones that reveal how well you know him. Something like “I love the way your face scrunches up when you’re doing the crossword puzzle” or “You have the most manly calves I’ve ever seen.”

#5: Send Him the Diary Entry You Wrote After Your First Date — or Write One Now

One of the best things about having a girlfriend is reminiscing about what you thought about each other in the beginning of your relationship. Reliving all of the uncertainty and anxiety is strangely exhilarating. I can’t think of a better anniversary present than a sanctioned peek into the documented thoughts of someone I care about.

Bonus Tip:

Give him a free pass to go out with his friends alone.
