Day 3 – Life is Getting Even Better

by SWEETADVENTURE8 under Entertainment, JBloggers, Single Life

Guys: Just a wake up call if your single and want to meet beautiful accomplished women…100hookup trip should be your next vacation. I’ve spoken to soo many amazing women here, and people in general. All I’m sayin..

After hittin some, spent the day chillin on the beach with an actual cocunut as a a beverage in hand. Did I mention how amazing this resort is?

Followed by fun at the pool, a cocktail party and lobster dinner…life is tough.

Of course the crowd convened in the perpetual and always fun martini bar. Tequila shots..I’m a pro now. And then to the disco for some salsa and to burn the calories. Can’t believe how quick the days fly.

Can’t believe tomorrow is the last full day. It seems there are a couple potential romances brewing among 100hookuprs but more importantly everyone is having a fabulous time!!

Great Expectations

by Tamar Caspi Shnall under JBloggers, Online Dating, Relationships

Dear Tamar,

I was supposed to have a first date with a man last week. Subsequently he canceled because he had to go out of town. We rescheduled for two weeks.  He calls me daily and we have wonderful conversations. We both already feel like we know each other.  Is talking too much before meeting a recipe for disaster? I know he is attractive and I love talking to him. I believe he feels the same.  I’m concerned that when we meet it might go too fast.

Thanks.

Dear Great Expectations,

I don’t recommend talking TOO much before meeting. I was disappointed WAAAAYYYY too many times because my date and I both had built up expectations of each other that neither one of us could realistically meet. No matter the chemistry on the phone, you may not have chemistry in person and it will be incredibly awkward on your date. I suggest tapering off the phone calls until you meet so that you don’t get your hopes up. You can either tell him your concern or just be “busy.” I advise one short phone call to hear the person’s voice and to make plans, which would ideally be within the week.

If everything does fall into place, it’s up to you to set the pace.  If it’s true that you think you know each other better than you do, and a 1st date after many phone calls actually feels like a 3rd date , you can get caught up in the momentum. Just take a step back and, instead of taking it too far, make a date for a few days later. Good Luck!

Day 2 – The Fun Continues…

by SWEETADVENTURE8 under Entertainment, JBloggers, Single Life

Did I mention there is all-inclusive 24 hour room service? YUM! This resort is fabulous!

I put on a cute little bikini and cover-up and headed to breakfast. Within 20 minutes somehow I managed to have green beetle juice all over my white (now tied-died) cover-up. At least the culprit was a cutie… Was that his pick-up line?

Off to tennis, followed by lounging at the pool with continuous cocktails in hand. I recommend the banana daiquiri or kahlua colada.  A visit to the relaxing open air spa, followed by a nice dinner and a 100hookup speed date event. Who knew this would be the hottest ticket in town.  There must have been at least 150 active participants (and a waiting list to boost). 100hookup organizers were pros trying to keep us all under control. Of course me and my Orlando, Ohio girls managed to be a 3 on 1 team quizzing these Lucky guys!

Since it is Day 2, the ritual continues time for 2 shots of tequila.  And then el discoteca.

A wonderful long day of relaxation and fun with a variety of folks. Everyone definitely seems to be having fun…

Day 1 – Life is Good

by SWEETADVENTURE8 under Entertainment, JBloggers, 100hookup, Single Life

On my way to Mexico, sitting in first class (thank you FF miles) the beginning of a great long weekend no doubt…

WOW! This resort is gorgeous! A definite upgrade from the Bahamas –cheers to 100hookup organizers!  Did I mention I have a huge jacuzzi bathtub in the middle of my room?
A lot of familiar faces and a lot of new ones too. This is going to be fun…off to the beach for now! The afternoon sped away with a frozen daiquiri in hand as I caught up with friends at the pool.

Cocktail hour/Dinner–In a chill mood and acclimating to being on “vacation” after traveling all day. But who are we kidding it is a singles trip after all and it is the first day, lots of looking and fun flirting with new friends.  Not to mention my first ever shot of tequila– it is Mexico after all?

A special cheers for Mr. Rockstar, for getting Randi, Mer and I OFF, we were being bitten alive… must be our sweet blood.

A great first evening in Mexico, at a great resort with old and new friends…priceless…
See you tomorrow…

Separation Anxiety

by Tamar Caspi Shnall under JBloggers, Online Dating

Dear Tamar,

I just subscribed to 100hookup a few weeks ago and I put on my profile that I am separated because even though I am in the settlement stage of my divorce and have been separated almost a year, I haven’t legally completed the divorce. I do notice that guys I am interested in on here are not ideally looking for someone who is “separated”.  It’s not like I am going back to my ex and I am truly ready to move on. Should I keep my profile listed as separated for now?

Thanks!

Dear Separation Anxiety,

Without a doubt I would recommend selecting “Divorced” as your marital status. Not only does “Separated” denote unfinished business, but also it’s more information than anyone needs to know at this stage. Only once you’re actually on a face-to-face date and are rehashing your histories should you disclose this information. But I don’t think it’s enough for you to simply change that part of your profile, because anyone who has looked at your profile has already seen it and may remember it. I would recommend doing a profile facelift — taking new photos, changing around your “About Me” paragraph and maybe even creating a new screen name — all in the hopes of attracting attention and letting them know that you are ready and have moved on. Good luck!

Long Distance Lothario

by Tamar Caspi Shnall under JBloggers, 100hookup, Online Dating

Dear Tamar,

I started chatting on 100hookup with a guy in another country back in March, then via email and now consistently twice a week on skype (with camera).  In between  skyping we email short messages, but nothing is flirty. We talk about the moon, the stars and everything under the sun, but nothing about us. He never says I like you or I am attracted to you and never gets into emotional discussions about ‘us’. I find him emotionally detached. Is he? I really like him. When I have tried to hint a ‘how do you feel’, he says ‘I am interested otherwise I wouldn’t communicate with you’. He has told me he would like to come visit, probably in September.  Where do I actually stand with him?  I really like him.

Dear Long Distance Lothario,

First, let me say September is a long way off. The problem with spending so much time getting to know someone you’ve never met who also happens to live halfway around the world is that you don’t really know who they are or if you will be a match once you do (if ever) meet. Second, the lack of emotional connection could be one of two things. Either he’s just bored and passing time at your expense, or he’s a really great guy and is getting to know you on a deeper level than just talking about sex. As women, we’re not totally used to this, but think about it… why should he talk about a relationship with someone he’s never met?

I don’t think there’s any harm in keeping in touch, but I wouldn’t stop meeting other people on 100hookup in the meantime. There are a number of reasons for this: it will keep you from putting all your eggs in one basket; it will make the time between now and the visit fly by faster; and if he never visits then you didn’t totally waste your time.

Making Contact

by Tamar Caspi Shnall under JBloggers, 100hookup, Online Dating

Minutes after creating a 100hookup profile you’ll probably start getting a lot of views right off the bat. Being fresh meat on the 100hookup market means you’re feeling pretty hot right about now, but how do you convert the views into dates? And what do you do when someone else’s profile catches your eye?

First, use the 100hookup tools to your advantage. When the “views”, “flirts” and “clicks” are used and reciprocated, you know the other person is interested… now it’s time to make a move and send a message. But wait… I’m an old fashioned type of gal and I believe if the guy is interested he’ll make the move, just as if we were in a bar. So the women can send flirts to their hearts desire, but let the guy make the first move. So guys (or gals who don’t want to sit around waiting,after all, it is a free world), when you write your message make sure it is not about you! We can learn enough about you by reading your profile. The message should be about why you like the other person, what caught your eye and what you have in common. Make the message specific to the person you’re writing to and add a compliment or two for good measure. The message should be short and sweet, but at least three lines. And do not ever, and I mean never, copy and paste a generic e-mail, it’s always obvious!

If you’re on the receiving end of a message, you can easily check to make sure the writer actually read your profile by looking for specifics. If you think the writer is attractive, you like their profile and their message, then go ahead and write back. But don’t wait too long. You should reply within the next day or two, just as you would if the message were a phone call to return. The reply should consist of a thank you, a return compliment and your phone number. That’s it. Keep it simple.
