I'm an internet junky and one the things I read a lot of are blogs about hair.
Of which this is not one. However, occasionally the blogs will pos something that is not hair related at all. Like this: sending a man a drink at a bar.
When I think about all of the bold things I've done to get a man's attention and keep it, the idea of paying for a drink and sending it his way doesn't come to mind, but why not? I'm bold, I look hot, I make eye contact, I put tick marks in all the boxes of the things that a bold woman would do, except this.
Sad to say I've not had a drink purchased for me in a while, in part because the crush of bodies at the bars I do happen to frequent doesn't lend itself to that and in part because I haven't been to a bar in a while.
I think that needs to change. Maybe I need to find better bars to go to, but to do that I would have to be willing to go to ANY bar. In the current state of dating, I think it's important to stand out from the crowd. Even looking different is no longer enough.
In a sea of birds of all different colored feathers the one that stands out is the one who steps in front of the crowd. I challenge my readers to be bold in their dating, to push beyond that status quo of boldness. Find ever more things that set you apart and don't be afraid to call the bartender over and send that guy you're eyefucking a refill on his Side Car or microbrew.
