Imagine you get stood up for a date or your latest crush appears to have disappeared off the face of the earth, who are you gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS. No. Ghostbusters may not be fully qualified for this situation despite the culprits of the above offences could be referred to as “ghouls”. You call your best friend armed with a tub of Ben and Jerrys (the two men that women can always depend on) and talk for the best part of an hour (and the rest) about how you should have seen it coming, or you try and make excuses for WHY its okay that he can’t make your date because he “forgot to text you before now to tell you but I have to go to my friends to look at some drawings my friend keeps asking me, sorry”. Ahole. As much as your girlfriends can lend a sympathetic ear and advise/offer helpful suggestions of how to phrase the perfect text message reply or how to play him at his own game or plan a night out of dancing and flirting with cute boys (over one guy, under another, etc) the fact of the matter is that nobody truly knows the inner workings of a mans mind like a man does.
Much like a female friend can be a single mans best dating ally, a single male friend is the perfect sounding board to let you into the inner sanctum of how men work to help you find out what makes them tick and exactly why they do the things that they do that drive women mad.
Why don’t they text back? Why do they blow hot one moment and then play cold? How can you twist them around your little finger? How can you have a perfect date but then they completely ignore you?
Imagine you had the opportunity to ask a guy everything you wanted to know about men and dating and he’d answer it with complete and utter unsugarcoated honesty. Well, that’s what I’ve found in Oz. & that’s what I want to offer you the women of the interwebz…(if you want to/can get a question in edgeways that is, I’m sure I have enough questions/real life scenarios to quiz him on to fill a book).
Remember that scene in Sex and the City where Carrie takes Berger to meet her friends and he tells Miranda in no uncertain terms that if a man is interested in you “he’s booking the next date, he’s coming back for coffee” and if he doesn’t: he’s just not that interested. There’s no black and white, there’s no mixed signals. Well that’s Oz’s style of advice.
Oz is Berger, on the internet, and over the next few weeks I’m going to be sharing with you some inside information from the Mars dwelling species we like to call men.
His first piece will go live tomorrow. “The Dating Battlefield – Know Your Enemy” – what kind of guy is he and how to bag yourself a date with him.
