Six tips for dating from the 'black Carrie Bradshaw'

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

1.Smile and say "Hi."

2.If you want to meet a man, look like you want to meet a man. . . . Lip gloss and a comb never hurt anyone. Use both liberally.

3.Men don't notice you across a room because of your brain. Give them something to look out for.

4.Flatter your best asset. If it's your smile, smile. If it's your legs, wear a skirt.

5.Stop looking for men in bunches like at the club or happy hour. Men are everywhere, on the street, in line, in the elevator, on the train . . .

6. Go out alone. (But be safe.) I know you just thought "Hell, no!" Try it, just once.
