Flirting, Flaunting, and Faking It! (With return guest host Janice Hoffman!)

It’s complicated enough just to find an interesting date, but are you doing things to bring them into your life or turning them off before you even realize it?

Just what is involved in Flirting, Flaunting, and Faking it that can either get you in the arms of the right mate, or conversely, make potential dates run away from you without you even knowing it?

And guess what? My relationship guru gal pal, Janice Hoffman (Mars and Venus expert) will be covering for me due to some last minute out of town opportunities that just came up!) Janice has joined us a couple of times and she always brings a wealth of knowledge and tons of fun with her!

This next meetup will be examining these very important three concepts…

1. Flirting: 
How do the sexes flirt with each other? How can YOU catch someone’s eye and let them know you’re interested? How can you tell when they are really wishing you’d come up and say hello? And what can you do with your photos, clothing, hairstyle, and more to get the flirting started anyway?

2. Flaunting: 
From Internet profiles to strutting their stuff in public, just how do people flaunt it and turn off potential mates? Hear from both sides of the gender gap as we share what turns us off, many times before we even meet someone in the flesh.

3. Faking it: 
From lying on Internet profiles to faking it in the bedroom, faking it is rarely a good thing. How and why do people “fake it” and what does it really hurt anyway?

This Meetup will be VERY interactive as we dissect these key factors that have potentially caused many much misery in the ever-crazy world of Dating, Mating, and Relating!

Learn how you can read the signs, the “red flags,” and the body language that says, “I’d love it if you say hello,” versus, “Run away! Run away!”

As always, you'll get the chance to sit with 3 different groups of people throughout the night and with new people joining us each week, you never know if Mr. or Ms. Right will be right next to you! After all, we have several successful couples who found each other at this Meetup ... and the record setters have been together for over 6 years and happily married!

Just who might YOU meet this time?

Remember, the official meeting begins at 7PM but smart daters start rolling in at 5:30PM to order their libations from Mercury Cafe. (Great food, by the way!) and to get a head start on "rubbing elbows" with other early-arriving Savvy Singles! So don't miss your opportunity ... get there early!

We had 80+ folks at the last Meetup! With over 2000 members, if only ten percent of everyone shows up, just think of the possibilities!

BTW - there's tons of free street parking or else $1 parking lot directly across the street. So don't let the fact that we're downtown dissuade you. This group has been meeting for 7 YEARS with successful stories each year! Maybe this is your year!

    August 4

    • Mili R.

      It depends if u feel u can learn something from this...I personally want to hear of any secrets I may not know of since a lot of people think they know it all I'm not that kind of snobnose type of person... there's always nu ideas n nu tricks to everything...I take that opportunity with humbleness...
