I shared part one of my interview with love coach extraordinaire Lauren Frances. Read it here. She shared some practical advice to follow that will help you suss out if you are on the same page as a new guy, both looking for the same things, and if he's into you for the long haul (not just for the time-being). In other words, how to know if this is a guy you could really end up with. Today, it's time for part two, and this topic's a doozy. It's all about to make good dating decisions and not be swayed by physical attraction. You know when you're seeing a guy who's so hot, your panties are basically melting off? You [...]

Frances, a columnist for Flaunt magazine, is a dating expert with a Ph.Double-D. This sets the tone for the rest of her first book, on how to get a boyfriend and more brazen guides to dating and sex. Using a clever classification system that equates men with birds, she presents several dozen types, from the "Clay Pigeons" who "won't take the hint to buzz off" to the "Baldheaded Eagle." The rest of Frances' book, split into sections on dating, sex and couple-hood, is a humorous guide.
Dating Boot Camp, Part One: How to Tell If a Guy Is Really Serious or Just Wrapped Up in the Chase It's not always easy to tell the difference between a guy who's seriously into you and one who's wrapped up in the moment. The reason? Lust is a powerful thing, and some men will do just about anything in the sweet spot between "nice to meet you" and "sex." Closing the gap between point A and B can be a goal some men pursue with the same vigor as Roger Federer practicing for, playing in, and attempting to win Wimbledon, for example. They may get carried away and act like you're the be-all and end-all, only to lose interest [...]
Dating doesn't have to feel like open-heart surgery, says professional relationship coach Lauren Frances Long ago, when romance seekers hunted in the field (aka bars) rather than cyberspace, Lauren Frances organized Man Trap Packs—posses of single women who hit the town to find love. Their success prompted her to write, in 2006, Dating, Mating, and Manhandling: The Ornithological Guide to Men. For $180 an hour, Frances offers one-on-one dating and relationship sessions for men, women, and couples (she delivers similar advice en masse in a newly launched “Romantic Reboot” seminar). Frances, her own best student, says she’s dating a “special someone.” Here she shares some wisdom. How does a single woman start the search? Write a list of everything you [...]
Most single women complain that they don’t date enough, but when I ask them how many men they’ve asked out lately, the answer is often a shocked and confused “None!” (Nun, get it?) Romantic rule: If you want to go on more dates, ask and ye shall receive, sayeth the bored. You can trade in your chastity belt for a garter belt and date as much as you want to, whenever you want to, when you flirt like a self-assured Romantic Researcher, and not like a lonely lady in waiting. Now before I share maneuvers guaranteed to get you working your lingerie drawer, you’ll need to trash some old ideas first. Here are two man-catching techniques as current as the [...]
Wouldn't it be great if the men you dated came with little WARNING stickers? Well, you're in luck, because they actually do. You just need to instantly pick up on the clues that men give you, but that most women don't seem to pick up on, on first and second dates. Clues that say, "I'm not trustworthy. I'm not accountable. I am NEVER getting married. I'll just wind up cheating on you, leaving you, and swiping your duvet." I am so not kidding! The "How To Date Like An International Spy" Podcast Program and "Heartache Prevention Question" Training Video will show you how to read BETWEEN THE LINES, and get techniques that work exactly like Verbal Truth Serum. It'll make [...]

I met Lauren after being devastated and heart broken by a man I thought was the best match for me. I felt like I would never find another guy that made me feel the way he did. However, Lauren quickly showed me the many qualities he was lacking and for 3 years consistently reminded me what could be out there if I was willing to wait for what I deserved. I was able to talk to Lauren throughout the next relationship I was in and learned a lot from it. That was the first and only lesson I needed before finding the love of my life. Initially, I was scared to get into the relationship and did my best to [...]
"Laughter, fun and an open heart are now a part of me. As attractive as Lauren is intellectually as a mentor; she is even more so as a human being. She sees the perfection in our imperfections, bringing forth our greatest capacity to love." Hara V. — Man Magnet LA 2010
