5 BIGGEST ICE HOCKEY BRAWLS

A lot of people don’t see the appeal of ice hockey, some guys skating around hitting a puck at each other. You’re missing the point. Take a quick look at the crowd; those shirtless, beer-fuelled specimens are there for only one thing and it isn’t the hockey. They’ve worked out something a lot of us haven’t yet – watching guys in large amounts of padding starting a fight with one another while trying to stay upright on ice is hilarious. Who knows, if you’re really lucky it might even develop into a mass brawl.

I’m kind of kidding, I wouldn’t pay money to go see these things for myself but watching the Youtube clips of some famous ice hockey brawls is a lot more fun than I thought. We’ve recently added world famous sports merchandiser 47 Brand to our ranks, with caps from five top NHL teams Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, San Jose Sharks, L.A. Kings and New York Rangers. So in celebration of this we’re picking out the top 5 brawls – one for each team.

Vancouver Canucks vs Chicago Blackhawks– March 2009

The Blackhawks team logo features a Native American so if Cowboys and Indians movies are anything to go by (which they’re not) you’d expect them to be up for a fight. If this clip is anything to go by then they certainly are (0:50 is the point at which things start to get a bit ugly).

Detroit Red Wingsvs Anaheim Ducks – May 2009

Ah, 2009… a vintage year for brawling, everyone was at it. This no-holds-barred scrap got the crowd on its fee, sticks were downed and helmets were pulled off. Hockey matches must over-run by quite a bit with all these stoppages!

San Jose Sharksvs St. Louis Blues – April 2012

This one was only from a month ago and already it’s racked up a number of views, that’s probably because the intensity is pretty high, no half-hearted nudging here.

L.A. Kingsvs Ottawa Senators – December 2001

By the end of this video, it looks like Armageddon has hit. When the L.A. Kings go, they go hard.

Edmonton Oilers vsNew York Rangers – November 2010

Madison Square Garden is best known for its historic sporting and music events; well in November 2012 it was also home of one of the biggest mass brawls seen in in the NHL in a long time.

If these video clips have whet your appetite then now’s the time to don a team’s cap and cheer every player’s loss of discipline.

Each of the teams above produces quality merchandise for their legions of fans the world over; apparel with the team’s branding on is hugely sought after so it’s a great time to get involved.

The Top 7 Male Jobs That Women Find Attractive

I’ve been constantly discussing the fact that, what you do, as a job, isn’t really important as long as you have game but, at some point into the conversation she will want to know exactly what you occupy your time with. If you want to rack up some extra points make sure you tell her one of these.

Don’t worry if you aren’t doing any of these jobs, you can easily fake them and I’ll tell you exactly how. If you’re looking for a long term relationship with any particular target, lying about your career isn’t really the way to do it but, if it’s fun (sex) you’re after, these will suit you well.

Entrepreneur

Yep, you’ve guessed it, at the top of the list and my personal favorite is the entrepreneur. It takes a lot of balls to quit your day job and become your own boss and women feel that. Think about it, not many men have the courage to stand up to their boss and give their resignation. Men that do this are of a different breed, they are risk takes, they are not willing to settle for less when they know there’s much more out there, they dedicate themselves, working long hours even on weekends, only to achieve their dreams.

Don’t worry if you’re still stuck in your job, women don’t necessarily have to know this. You can easily fake it by either telling them that you run a consulting firm for whatever job you are actually doing or, you can tell them that you run your own business that does what your day job is doing. As long as you keep your day job in the center you can easily go into details about it. It works even if you’re a pool boy, just tell them that you run a pool cleaning company and talk about what you’re guys are doing (which is what you’re really doing), you can even tell her that you still clean pools yourself because it keeps you at an equal level with your employees. They will just love that!

Army Guy

Women just love a guy that is a fighter. You can be a soldier, tank driver, whatever else about the army. They love the fact that you are taking risks and you’re a rough man. The image of protector will shine in her mind. You can feed her all sorts of war stories (easily made up from what you see in war movies) and tell her about how tough life is in the army etc. It’s a fantastic turn on for women and they will surely fall for you. A good amount of screening is necessary here since some are looking for commitment and a guy that’s out of the country, at war, won’t be offering her much comfort but, considering that you’re already lying about your career, a relationship is already out of the question.

If you want to use this one make sure you’re in good shape. Not only will that make it more believable but it will also keep you protected in case a real army guy discovers that you are a fraud.

Veterinarian

Women love pets and the bond between humans and their pets can be a very strong one. As a veterinarian you understand this bond and connect with animals at an emotional level. Women will eat this up. Another extra would be that this job is very well paid.

You can talk about the different animals that walk into your clinic and how happy you make their owners feel after you’ve “fixed” their favorite pet.

Firefighter

Again we have bravery, danger coupled up with a sense of protection and physical conditioning. A true firefighter has no fear and risks his life to save others. You need to be in believable shape to pull this one off but if you watch a few episodes of “Rescue Me” you’ll have plenty of stories to tell her. Try to keep things at an emotional level and describe the feelings you have when saving people’s lives as well as the feelings of the rescued.

Tell her how you’ve been thanked by moms for saving their children and how rewarding such experiences are.

Airplane Pilot

Pilots make a lot of money and women know that. If that’s not enough tell them how great your job is because you’re getting paid insane amounts of money for visiting the world (even though we know you don’t see much outside of airports, or mostly clouds when you’re flying) but they don’t necessarily have to know that.

Again revert to feelings here and describe how it feels to fly such a huge plane and what a big responsibility it is to have 100+ passengers’ lives resting in your hands.

Photographer

This is a really popular one and you can work it from many angles. Women appreciate a man with an artistic style that can capture a moment in time and say it all with a single image. Explain to them how your camera is the window to the soul. A lot of women lose their inhibitions when they are on camera and they also see it as a turn on.

You can easily fake this job by having a camera with you at all times, framing her or other things with your hands and constantly complaining about the lighting.

Fashion Designer

Women love guys with fashion sense. To pull this one off you’ll first need to have GREAT shoes but, they just love shoes and you have to accept that. An overall sense of fashion is a must in this scenario. You can constantly compliment them about their appearance telling how you could make a perfect dress to fit their bodies, because that body is just great for modeling.

Make sure you pick on people’s clothing with comments that are slightly funny. If she’s more hard going pick on her for a bit and see how she reacts. Tell her you do this for a living and that she can trust you when it comes to fashion, tell her that most women clothes designers are men and that truly proves you know better.

What works

As a smart man you should always be able to come up with anything on the spot, especially if you’ve been talking with her for a bit. The more you speak to her the more you understand what she wants and once you know, you just have to give it to her.

If in doubt just think of a job that makes a living, but also offers elements of bravery, risk, creativity and/or skill, and you will impress women every time.

There you have it, my top 7 jobs that women die for. Don’t forget, if you’re planning on going into a relationship with this particular person then lying about your career isn’t’ a great idea.

This is the sort of stuff I discuss on my blog and in the free eBook I give out. If you want to increase your success with women, visit http://ThePlayerGuide.com – a place where the dating mindset is thrown out the window in favor of more direct and fruitful methods of meeting and seducing women.

Can Pizza and Beer Really Be Good for You?

Film ScanPizza & Beers in Italy

 

Perhaps it seems too good to be true that delicious foods and beverages, such as pizza and beer, can be good for you. They absolutely can be! Of course, everything in moderation is the best way to go with most foods but there is plenty of room in a way of eating for both of these. Feel free to drink up and nosh on your favorite slice as both can be healthy for you and there are a few reasons why.

Pizza

Pizza is a quintessential part of the American diet in many ways. It is often demonized as a food to avoid for people watching their health or weight. There are a wide variety of toppings available for pizza and some are healthier than others. Pizza commonly contains some form of tomatoes, such as tomato based pizza sauce. An Italian study shows that people who eat pizza once a week actually get certain forms of cancer less than others. The reason is the lycopene from the tomatoes. Not to mention that cheese is an excellent form of calcium and meat is a great source of protein. It’s true that both of these things can be fatty so use a light hand.

The way in which to boost the health of pizza is to choose toppings wisely. It also helps to make your own pizza. Choose or make the pizza with a whole wheat crust. Toppings such as spinach or green peppers add valuable nutrition. Grilled chicken is another pizza topping to consider. Portion size is also a factor. Eating a large pepperoni pizza at one setting isn’t the healthiest thing to do. Have a few slices of pizza, add a side salad along with it, and enjoy!

Beer

It’s true that beer is not touted as being useful or optimal for health reasons. Surprisingly, beer actually has benefits that are similar to those found in wine! Somehow it doesn’t get the same press. There are benefits to all kinds of beers so you can feel free to drink your very favorite brand. The key is not exceed two beers per day.

Beer is linked to reduced risk of both vascular and heart disease. Beer is made with both wheat and barley. Yeast contains a lot of vitamins and they do survive the process of fermentation. Vitamin B6 is one of those vitamins. This is what reduces heart disease as it prevents buildup of homocysteine. Beer gives a substantial increase of vitamin B6 into blood plasma. Savoring your favorite beer in the evening can also help you sleep soundly at night.

Eating a healthy diet is about balance. There is no reason to eschew all of your favorite foods or drinks. Instead, look at the big picture. Pizza and beer may not be ideal if you consume too much of it, but are perfectly fine in moderation. Luckily, food can be tasty and flavorful, as well as being healthy.

Considering a Home Theater Projection System? Do it!

Have you ever gone to the movie theater and wished that you could replicate that feeling of actually being a part of the movie that you have when you’re seeing it in the theater? Of course you have! Installing a home theater projector in your own living room might not exactly duplicate the movie theater experience, but it can be just about as close as you can get in the privacy of your own living room.

You can set up your own big screen to satisfy your movie going urges without having to purchase expensive theater tickets and concessions… or without leaving your house, for that matter. You can pop your own popcorn, snack on your own sweets and lounge in your comfy clothes. Not to mention, what girl wouldn’t love to come back to your home theater setup to watch a movie with you?

Mounting a projection screen to your ceiling will allow for use at any time and keep the device from being more clutter in your living room. When setting up a projector, you will want to be aware that they require ambient lighting, meaning that you will have find a way to limit the amount of light entering the room when using the projector.

The size of the room is also important. Projectors need larger rooms. The larger the room, the larger the screen you should be able to accommodate. There are calculators online, like this one to help you determine the screen size that will properly fit your living room.

There are three versions of video projectors available for purchase. Those three are: CRT, DLP and LCD. Here’s some info on the three different types of projectors, so you can decide which one will work best for you.

CRT (Cathode Ray Tube)

The CRT video projector has been around for quite a while and is not available to the average consumer, but is rather used for commercial and industrial use. CRT projectors produce the blackest of black and have the ability to show the most movie-like qualities out of any of the types of projectors. This type also has the longest light source projection times. It can last up to 20,000 hours.

These units are typically very big, require a large screen and it is necessary to have a completely dark viewing area.

DLP (Digital Light Processing)

This type of projector is used in both commercial movie theaters and in home environments. The DPL projector uses images displayed on a chip called a DMD (Digital Micromirror Device) wherein all of the images in every pixel are reflected onto a mirror in the chip. The mirrors tilt rapidly to accommodate the changing images on the screen. The color on these projectors is very accurate, they use smaller amounts of energy to operate and produce a smoother looking picture.

The downside to this type of projector is there are a limited number of pixels that these projectors can provide. The light source also usually needs to be changed after every 3000-4000 hours’ worth of use. This model has become pretty popular among home theater enthusiasts.

LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)

This type of model uses a powerful light source to project through a transparent LCD chip comprised of individual pixels. These images are then projected through a lens onto a large screen. This model is compact because the LCD chips are small. They do not use much power and have a high brightness and contract capability. The other big advantage to the LCD projector is that they are inexpensive and geared towards home theater usage.

This unit does have some disadvantages. The LCD chip has many individual pixels on a chip. If one of the pixels burns out, it will appear as a black spot on your screen. Individual pixels cannot be replaced in this model; therefore, it would be necessary to purchase a completely new chip. The light source on this model will also need to be replaced every 3000-4000 hours and sometimes the light replacements can be costly.

Whichever you decide to use, don’t hesitate to get your home theater setup! I did it last year and, despite having to fork over some money initially, I haven’t regretted it for one second.

Jeff Fields contributes writing to Allcases, a company that sells projector cases, among many other cases. When he’s not working, writing, or watching a movie in his home theater, Jeff likes hanging out with his two black labs and playing Neil Young covers on his acoustic guitar.

Where To Meet Women

If you’re like most single, straight men, the weekends probably have you headed to the bar or club, hoping it is a place to meet women. Yet time and again, things don’t quite work out, and you don’t know why.

Don’t bother checking your grooming or your pickup lines. It’s not you, it’s them. Women don’t like meeting men in bars – unless they’re just going for the hookup. Generally speaking, women don’t want the story of how you met to be in a boozy bar. So where do you meet women? Any place but the bar.

Hardware stores are a great place to meet women. It seems silly, but the next time you’re checking out tools, check out the aisles for a woman that looks lost or uncertain. Help her out, and you just might have the start of something special.

Another excellent spot where to meet women is at the gym or park, or even a stadium. Fitness freaks can bond over a winning goal, or console someone on the losing team. Offer to spot her – without being creepy – and you may find a date for the weekend.

If you’re more of the intellectual sort, you probably want to head somewhere brainy to meet women. A bookstore, library, or lecture could be a place to meet women who enjoy quieter pursuits.

Get in line. Any line, whether at the grocery store, bank, DMV, or amusement park, is good for meeting women. Strike up a conversation and make what is usually an annoying and tedious task a little more fun. If things go well, ask for her digits, and maybe you’ll be standing in line together before long.

Volunteer and join the club. Women find altruism sexy. Find a group to volunteer with and you’ll likely also meet women who are not only giving, but also willing to give you a chance.

Go across town to shop. If you’re going to all your usual haunts and not meeting women, then shake up your usual routine and the world becomes your personal where to meet women hunting ground. Find a new dry cleaner; buy a record at a record store, instead of online. Try a new deli and meet a new girl. Shop where there’s a chance to interact – head to Ikea and help her with a box in the warehouse section. Visit the Apple store and help her out, or ask her for help, depending on how tech-savvy you are.

Join the community. Many cities and towns have community events, from movies in the park to fun fairs. Offer to share your blanket or beer, and you’ll meet women that love your generous nature.

Basically, you can meet women any place, but most likely it will be outside the bar. Meeting women without the backdrop of alcohol and cigarette smoke can show off your unique personality and attributes and add something surprising and spontaneous to the encounter. So when you’re ready to make a connection, rather than a collection of (possibly fake) phone numbers, get out and go and you’ll likely meet women on your wanderings, near and far.

6 Date Wrecking Activities You Need To Stay Clear Of

Ever been on a date, felt like a good time but then she never replied to your calls? Don’t despair, it happens to all of us. It’s usually because you’re doing some of the following date wrecking activities. Next time you go out, make sure you stay clear of them and things should work in your favor.

Using your phone

When a real man is interested in a woman, he gives her, his full undivided attention. That makes her feel special. It also shows her that you are genuinely interested in her existence. This is the sort of thing that racks up some big points on her scoreboard.

Staying on your phone all night shows her just how little you care about her. On top of that, it’s rude in any sort of social convention.

Starting at other chicks

You’re on a date so try to focus! This sort of behavior tells a girl that you’re not interested in her or that you don’t find her attractive, since you’re looking at the other women.

This sort of behavior is what makes a girl feel bad. It’s also the sort of behavior that get’s your number blocked.

Getting Hammered

Alcohol loosens people up, they open up to each other – That’s a good thing.

When you have too much, you start talking stupid stuff, you wobble your hands around, spilling her drink etc… Apart from how sad that is, it makes you look insecure or even worse you come off as an alcoholic.

Next time you go out, make sure you keep an eye out on your alcohol intake. If you’re one of those people who don’t know when to stop, don’t drink at all!

Judging her every word

She’s out with you because she wants to have a good time. That should be your primary goal. I’m not telling you to agree with everything she says, because that makes you look even worse but, when she tells you she likes Twilight… just leave it there.

Stories about your ex

Ok, so your ex was a total bitch. She cheated on you, left you for your best friend etc. Now let me ask you a question, do you think the girl you just convinced to go out with you cares about this? I’ll answer that for you – NO.

Actually, women find this very disturbing; even if you might think, or say otherwise, this clearly shows them that you’re NOT over your ex. With so many guys around, no girl needs a guy with ex girlfriend issues.

Talking about how amazing you are

There’s nothing worse than going out with a guy and hearing, that same guy, talking on and on about his achievements, great life, how good he looks, how much he benches etc.

You need to remember that yes, she does want to know you but, she wants you to know her too. Women love a good listener so next time you’re out, try to play that role and see how it works for you.

The Eternal Question: Who’s Better Behind the Wheel?

Who’s better behind the wheel?

The Eternal Question: Who’s Better Behind the Wheel?

Few men would have the guts to admit that their girlfriends, wives or female friends are better drivers than they are. It’s simply taken for granted among men that they know the rules of the road better than their female counterparts. While competitive driving leagues like NASCAR and IndyCar are male-dominated, and there is some scientific evidence to support the notion that men have faster reaction times and better spatial judgment than women, it may surprise you to learn that the question of who is better behind the wheel is still being debated.

Accident Rates Per Miles Driven
If you’re a younger guy, regardless of your driving history, chances are you cringe every time you pay your car insurance bill. There’s a reason your rates are so high: You’re paying for the sins of your peers. Among all demographic groups, young men are the most likely to be involved in serious car accidents.

The Teenage Issue
According to recent data, teen-age males suffer an average of nine deaths per 100 million miles traveled, compared with five for teen-age females. Fatal crash rates per 100 million miles decline sharply for both sexes as drivers age, falling to a rate of 1.6 for both men and women aged 60 to 69. This suggests that men become far less aggressive as they age, catching up to women by the time they’re ready to retire. Death rates for both sexes increase again after age 70, to about 4 per 100 million miles, a phenomenon attributable to age-related ailments like poor eyesight.

A Learning Curve
So does this mean that male drivers learn more as they age–that they’re more adaptable and willing to shed bad habits behind the wheel? Actually, yes. Another Insurance Institutes For Highway Safety study that measured long-term changes in accident rates among certain demographic groups found that as women drove more miles per capita between 1970 and 2003, the incidence of serious accidents involving women increased markedly. Female accident-related deaths increased by 14 percent even as male deaths decreased by 11 percent, indicating that women have become more careless behind the wheel. Men, meanwhile, seem to be dialing back their reckless driving habits, leading some to wonder if young men pay too much for car insurance.

Smash-Ups Or Fender-Benders?
Another important study sheds more light on the issue. Although men in general are three times more likely to get into fatal car accidents, this number is skewed by the recklessness of younger male drivers. More importantly, it turns out that men and women are equally likely to get into accidents of any type. In other words, although crashes involving male drivers tend to be more serious, females are far more likely to get into fender-benders.

Age Matters
What’s more, female drivers’ accident rates increase with age, so that women are actually more likely to get into crashes of any type after age 35. Think about this the next time you let your girlfriend parallel park!

The question of who wins the battle of the sexes behind the wheel is as old as the automobile. Thanks to modern safety studies, we finally know the answer–well, kind of. While men are more likely to die behind the wheel, women have a much greater chance of banging up their cars in general. Keep that in mind next time a female friend questions your driving habits!

Achieving a Physically Fit and Healthy Body

Maintaining a perfect body image has become a new fad among today’s generation. To look good and attractive and also physically fit has almost become a need not only socially but also owing to its health benefits. Now every doctor recommends their patient to be physically active until his or her health does not permit that. Dieting, slimming, weight loss, are all the different terms leading to one common goal and that is a physically fit body. To achieve this one needs to follow a healthy diet and a lifestyle consisting of lots of physical activity. The practice of restraining oneself from certain food categories is termed as dieting. In most cases dieting is used in combination with physical exercises to lose weight or to maintain a stable body weight.

Diets to encourage weight loss are normally categorized into 4 types- low-fat, low-carbohydrate, low-calorie, and very low calorie.

Low-fat diets are basically reducing the percentage of fat in one’s diet. Calorie consumption is reduced as less fat is consumed. Diets of this type include NCEP Step I and II. A meta-analysis of 16 trials of 2–12 months’ duration discovered that low-fat diets led to an average weight loss of 3.2 kg over regular eating.

Low carbohydrate diets like Atkins and Protein Power are comparatively high in protein. Low-carbohydrate diets may be ketogenic that is they restrict carbohydrate intake amply to cause ketosis.

Low-calorie diets generally produce an energy deficit of 500–1,000 calories per day, which may lead to a 0.5 kilogram (1.1 lb) to 1 kilogram (2.2 lb) weight loss per week. Some of the most frequently used low-calorie diets include DASH diet, Diet to go, and Weight Watchers. The National Institutes of Health examined 34 randomized controlled trials to establish the usefulness of low-calorie diets. They discovered that these diets decreased total body mass by 8% in the short term, over 3–12 months.

Very low calorie diets generate 200–800 calories per day, preserving protein intake but restricting calories from both fat and carbohydrates. They force the body to starve and produce an average weekly weight loss of 1.5–2.5 kilograms. Diets of this type follow a cycle in which only 200 calories are consumed the first day, 400 the second day, 600 the third day, 800 the fourth day, 1,000 the fifth day, and so on and then the cycle repeats. These diets are not advisable for general use as they are associated with unfavorable side effects such as loss of lean muscle mass, increased risks of gout, and electrolyte imbalances. People trying these diets must be watched closely by a physician to avoid complications.

Detox diets claim to get rid of unwanted toxins from the body and may not cause weight loss. Most of these Many of these contain herbs and other homeopathic remedies, like dandelion root and celery and other juicy low calorie vegetables.

Loss of fat, water and muscle in the body leads to weight loss. People facing obesity problems generally focus on reducing the amount of body fat. Reducing even 10% body fat can lead to slimming and thus have a drastic impact on a person’s body shape.

Biggest Turnoffs For Women

I usually write a lot about how to meet women, how to go on dates and how to get those dates to end in bed. Sure, for some men that’s enough, but what happens to the ones that want more? Do relationships just happen?

Last week I was having a conversation with a good friend of mine. He explained that even though he was “scoring” fairly regularly, he never managed to keep dating the same person longer than 2-3 months.  He was very puzzled as to why the women in his life lost interest after a period of time. To me, it was quite obvious – he was driving them away.

A few months gives a women plenty of time to “really know you”, it’s here when she decides if you are a worthy investment.

Although you believe you’re doing everything right, the women that you’re dating seem to differ. This article discusses the most common reasons men drive women away. I’ve split them up into 2 categories, physical turnoffs and behavioral turnoffs and will be detailing both types in this article. You might think some of them are obvious but pay close attention to the ones you didn’t know about as they might just be the reason you are losing out.

Physical Turnoffs

Before we get into this subject, I want to make it clear that by physical turnoffs I’m not talking about your belly, weak arms, inability of benching 180kg etc. More often than not women are not looking for the strongest/most beautiful guy in the room; they just want a man with class, confidence and proper etiquette.  Do you think she would go out with you for a month if she cared about your invisible six-pack?

Here are some of the things you need to avoid if you want your “relationships” to be longer.

Bad bodily habits

Yawning without covering your mouth – Do you think she wants to look at your tonsils every time you’re tired? No and this also shows her that you lack proper etiquette.

Burping Loudly – Unless you’re Chinese (many other Asian cultures) and you’re complimenting the restaurant chef or her cooking, constrain yourself from doing such “activities” as in most western cultures that’s just disgusting.

Spitting – Regardless of how bad you think you need to do it, try NOT doing it when she’s around.

Clearing your phlegm throat loudly and incessantly – Avoid this by drinking some water or not talking, if you really have to do it, just excuse yourself for a moment and sort it out at the toilet.

Picking in/around your nose – This is a common thing that your kindergarten teacher was telling you not to do however, when you start to feel comfortable around a person (after 1-2 months or so) you begin to forget about controlling yourself and you start doing things without even realizing.

Displaying nervous ticks – Nervous ticks can be anything from biting nails to blinking profusely. Such bodily habits are not easy to control and if you can’t avoid them, best is to pray she’s not bothered by them.

Eating with no etiquette – It’s considered common sense to eat with your mouth close, to hold the fork and knife properly and not to talk with your mouth full. No girl wants you’re chewed puree in her hair.

Blowing your nose – Some people consider this as being normal and are ok with doing it in public however, most people consider it disgusting. If you have to do it, do it in private. If you must do it in front of her, make sure you excuse yourself.

Scratching inappropriate areas of your body – Do you think a woman would feel attracted to a man that scratches his testicles or butt in public? I didn’t think so either.

During the first few dates, you might keep a lid on these things but slowly you forget and that’s what drives them away. Always, when you’re with a woman and you feel the need to fulfill any of these bodily urges, simply excuse yourself and do your business in private. Think about it, would you still feel attracted to her if she did anything on the list? Exactly and that’s why you shouldn’t be doing them either.

Bad Appearances

Eye crust – You can easily avoid this by simply washing your face in the morning.

Bad breath –At least at some point in their life, over 85% of people suffer from halitosis (bad breath). Try to take every precaution – floss, brush your tongue and use mouthwash.

Sweaty Pits – These are very disgusting and some guys just can’t avoid them. If you sweat profusely even though you use a lot of deodorant, try wearing light color clothes (or plain black) as sweat stains are less visible on them.

Clothes issues – These can be anything from stains and or wrinkles on clothing, holes in underwear, undershirt and/or socks. Avoid them at all costs as they can only make you look bad.

Dirty, long fingernails – Women look at hands all the time and no woman wants to see a guy whose hands look like he’s been gardening all day. When it comes to long fingernails, unless you rock that classic guitar, you have no excuse.

You should focus on these issues all the time, not just when you’re on a date. In the future, make sure you take those extra 15 minutes in the morning or before you go out in public; the result will be well worth it.

Behavioral Turnoffs

Constantly talking about yourself – It’s true, she does want to know you but, she wants you to know her too. Try asking her questions about your life and be genuinely interested in her existence.

Not listening to her – During these first months do your best to listen, it may seem hard but it has to be done. Women love a guy that listens to them.

Being very vague – Constantly talking about yourself is no good but remember, she does want to know you too. Let her in on the interesting stuff but not your entire life story.

Checking out other girls and making remarks – You’re out with her because you’re interested in her. If you keep looking at other women she’ll just think that you find her unattractive. Why should she be with a man that doesn’t find her attractive?

Complaining about every aspect of your life – Think about it, if you hate your life, why would she want to be part of it?

Not introducing her to people you know – She wants to be part of “your world” that’s what makes her fall in love with you. With you she can meet people and do stuff she wouldn’t have done with anyone else. Don’t keep that away from her.

Laughing like a hyena – She might have great sense of humor but laughing so hard that everyone in the restaurant looks at you, will only embarrass you both.

Insulting women and exes – This only shows how you will talk about her when she’s not there. Also, never talk about your ex, regardless of the pain and suffering she put you trough, those stories are for your friends. Talking about your ex only tells your new girlfriend that you’re still in love with her.

Having a one-track mind – A man should always stand by his beliefs but he must also be opened to new possibilities, you don’t have to agree with her, but at least acknowledge her valid point of view.

As exhaustive as this list may seem, you’ve surely heard your female friends complain about some of the items on it. This list helps women decide whether a guy is boyfriend material or a one-time date.

You can also use this list for yourself, you might like her a lot but if she’s doing some of the things here its best you stay away.

What now?

Always remember, it’s not just the first few dates that require your constant attention, it’s the first few months. Eventually things dwell down and you can be yourself.  Hey, if she had the chance to know you and like you for who you really are, she might even tolerate some of your bad “qualities” but before that happens, do your best not to drive her away.
