Dating after divorce is radically different from single’s dating!  What? “I’VE CHANGED?” Yeah, that too… but man, there weren’t all these online dating sites back then and things have changed! I’m single again after a seventeen year marriage and trying to figure out all these dating sites, the acronyms, the mainstream ideas in dating, and what the heck is actually what out there! And, brother’s and sister’s, let me tell you, saying, “times have changed” is an understatement!

First, a bit about Beryl Powers: I’m female, late 40′s, not hit with the ugly forest but not drop dead gorgeous, either. Single again, with an elementary age child in residence, and starting over professionally, pursing my Master’s degree in Entrepreneurship and Legal Investigation. I’m a former English, Art and Journalism teacher and have been out of the world of work for over ten years. I’ve been married twice (the first time was a nine month marriage – a young kid mistake – no kids), and looking to marry only one more time.

Like many others, I’m looking for the one to spend the rest of my life with, not just the night! However, life in these United States has changed so unbelievable in the last twenty years, it’s hard to know how to go about finding a decent date. The first thing you have to know before you hit the dating sites, bars, text-to-knows, and singles meets is the new language of dating. Check out more »

Getting Attractive Dates? Plenty of Fish!

I read and an article in a magazine one time that took a survey about what trates people search for in a mate.  All the usual stuff:

Honesty, integrity, stability…. All of THAT

Then it asked about “looks” .

You know, attractive people.  According to the survey most people were not that opinioated about “good looks”. They often said that “looks are really not that important.

But… what they say and what they actually do are often very different things. Check out more »

about how cool my blog is perhaps I could find a hot dates to go on in my spare time. (I can’t just blog endlessly?)

I read bloggs teaching how to be a successful blogger.  They often suggest writing a “list” post. So I have decided to do just that. Are ya ready?

And here it goes….

How To Find a Girlfriend on Twitter

Create an Account
You gotta sign up first dude. You cant sit around playing X-box and expect to get hot twitter followers. So turn off the game and bust a move.

Spice up Your Profile
Don’t just use the default skin. Put something cool up that reflects your personality and why you are the one to git’ wit.  Make sure you make a good impression on you “bio”

Have a website
If you don’t have your own website you could just enter your Myspace profile in that section. Make sure that your profile at Myspace looks good to.  That way they can visit you there too and add you as a friend. Or at least get more info about ya.

Start Tweeting
Yep, like facebook start posting and texting  cool things you know and see. Talk about your “availability”. What your into…Who you be wit’ Your favorite food and drink and popular culture hipster  ramblings. Do this several times a day.

Follow Chicks
Do a “single” search using twitter. This will open real time treading for the term “single” Start following every single girl you find attractive.  Also use the hash tag (#) in your tweets and profile.  #single #hotties #dating ETC They will follow you back.  And when they do:

Strike up Conversations
Use the @hotchick (example) to start talking to girls. Compliment them and practice putting the twitter “mack” down.

Add Local Chicks
Do a search for your town. Follow all the hot chicks you see in that search. That is if you want somebody close to where you live. Twitter is worldwide..Ya know?  After a few online train wrecks myself  I’d be fine with a long distance twitter girlfriend.

Hook Up
“So glad to finally meet you in person. I have really been enjoying your tweets”
Would you like to join me down at the cyber cafe? Oh, I see you have your Iphone…Let’s rock!

I’m working on it with one gurl. But she wouldn’t even tweet meWhat gives? But hey, I got a really good feeling about this one :)
