Picking the perfect date by birth order

If you want to know more about a guy or girl you're dating, their family tree is a good place to look. Certain personality traits, unique to birth position, tend to show up again and again in family after family. For instance, if your date is:

  • The oldest child. He or she will tend to be bossy, super-responsible, competitive and assertive.
  • The middle child. A people-pleaser, he or she will often "make nice" in an effort to keep things calm.middle kids tend to be the diplomats in the family and in life.
  • The youngest child. Adventurous, creative and confident, youngest children also tend to be hyper-emotional and needy at times they like being babied.
  • The only child. After a childhood of being in the spotlight of their families, only children tend to crave attention and will aggressively and charmingly seek it from you.

What do men and women really want?

"What on earth does the other sex want" I get asked a lot it. The answer is simple. While en and women aren't the same, we're not from different planets either. What we all want is this:

  • To be accepted for who we are....not for who you think we should be.
  • To be know....warts and all.
  • To be heard...even whan we say something you don't want to hear.
  • To be appreciated....for small things as well as big.
  • To be cherished.
  • To be needed.
  • To be wanted.
  • To be liked.
  • To be loved.

Place and things to avoid while first date

Following are occasions and places you want to avoid as a first date. As a rule, these events create unrealistic expectations and involve too many other people. If it's fireworks you want, get these to a wienie roast a gasoline jumpsuit.

Wedding: Going to a wedding as a first date violates just about every single one of the ten basic rules listed earlier. And if you want to quibble about rules 6 (Do something that isn't competitive) are you really so naive as i think your date isn't trying to figure out how to beat you out the door when the ceremony's over? The stakes are just too high at weddings. Avoid them at all costs as a first date. In fact because weddings are such a bad idea for a first date. I've made it the standard by which all other bad first date ideas are judges.

New Year's Eve Party: Oh, puh-leeeze, New Year's Eve is the scariest night of the year for a first date. New Cloths, high expectations, lot of booze, high ticket others consider this a mini-wedding. Just about the only thing it lacks is a weeping mother-in-law and a crazy uncle who thinks the ladies' room is the coat check. On second thought, it just lacks the mother-in-law.

Valentine's day: Valentine's day has all the anxiety-producing elements of a wedding, all the over-blown expectations of New York's , plus the paper-Copied-induced hope of true Romance. Valentine's day is so potentially explosive that even couples who've been together for years approach it warily.

Thanksgiving dinner: Think of how many trams you've experienced at your family's Thanksgiving get-together:Uncle Harry getting plastered; Sister Susie crying into the crystallized yams; brother George coming out; Mom burning the turkey; and cousin Jim wanting to bring the TV to the table to watch football. Even if your family doesn't behave like this(what, you're from Pluto?) big time.In short, Thanksgiving is truly a family holiday - all the more reason to avoid it as a first date.

Beach: Although a great date for later on. the beach isn't first date stuff: too much skin, do you or don't you apply sun tan lotion, and if you do, to what and to whom? A first date on the beach also violates rule 5(Go to a place that's easy to get to) Rule 10(Find an activity that doesn't last more than a couple hours), and often rule 3(Do something that doesn't require new clothes).
