Attention Grabber

With all the holiday parties coming up, what should you do to stand out — and what tactics should you not employ?

The best way to attract others is to be happy, to enjoy yourself, and to laugh. Dress to impress — look good, feel good. Show your confidence and exert yourself. But don’t go overboard trying to get attention.

A woman I saw last night, who was being loud, had clearly been drinking too much, and was dressed provocatively, showing way too much skin. Unfortunately, she was only attracting the type of guys who were looking for a hookup. Her tamer girlfriends, meanwhile, were on the edge of the scene and enjoying the company of some great guys.

On the same note, a guy I noticed last night who was commanding the room with his lewd jokes, cussing a lot, and flirting with girls he clearly wasn’t interested in as a joke, was turning off all the women in the room. Even his guy friends were slowly putting distance between themselves because they wanted to meet quality women, and those women were not drawn to their friend’s spotlight.

Be respectful of yourself and others. Be positive, put out positive energy, and you will attract positive people — both friends and more.

What Would Jew Do?

Would you borrow a friend’s dog or volunteer to babysit a friend’s toddler to aid you in meeting other singles? You’d be surprised at the number of singles who are at the dog park with their neighbor’s pooch or strolling the mall with their niece or nephew, and no they aren’t doing it out of the goodness of their heart but rather as an easy way to break the ice with other attractive and available singles.

Single parents do it because they have to and sometimes can reap the rewards of having a cute kid, but would you go so far as to borrow a friend’s kid or pet for the sole sake of attracting attention?
