Question from Mary Kate K.: I have a friend that has been dating this guy for almost 2 years. It seems like every other day she’s uploading a picture of the two of them with some caption like, “the love of my life and I enjoying dinner at our favorite restaurant” or “look at the flowers my boyfriend gave me after a hard day!” I’m happy for her…but I’m also sick to my stomach. How do I nicely tell her to tone it down?

Question from Anna C.: I’ve had a crush on my neighbor for a while, and he finally asked me out on a date! Since we’ve lived near each other for nearly a year, we’re already friends on Facebook. Of course, I’ve looked at his profile in that time, and I feel like I really know him. On our date, is it okay to bring up something I saw on his profile, or should I avoid mentioning anything I’ve learned from social media stalking?

Posted In: Dating Advice Videos, Relationship Experts, Single in Stilettos Shows Articles, Videos

Relationship advice video, matchmaker Suzanne Oshima talks to relationship author Robert Manni about how to improve your chances of finding love.

Relationship Advice Video Gives Tips On Finding Love

We all know that finding someone special isn’t easy. If it were, then everyone would be in love, right? In this relationship advice video, these dating experts agree that, with these four tips, your chances of finding a relationship and love will increase.

1. Put the gadgets away: Your cell phone, computer, or tablet is creating a barrier between you and any man that wants to meet you. By holding your phone or looking at your laptop in a coffee shop, it seems like you’re busy and don’t want to be bothered.

2. Pay attention: It’s important to pay attention and be fully present. Notice the men around you and be open to meeting them organically.

3. Get real: Be realistic and clear about who you are and what you’re looking for. Once you know what you want, don’t focus on a long list of “must haves.” If you do, you’ll be single for a long time!

4. Reach out: If you had a great time, it’s important to acknowledge and follow-up after the first date. Be available and don’t wait too long to schedule the second date. You don’t want him to lose interest.

Dating Expert Reveals What Women Don’t Know About Men

According to this relationship advice video, there are three things that women don’t know about men. First, men are not that complicated. The dating expert says that they are very simple creatures — what you see is what you get! Second, they don’t pay attention. They’re consumed with their own lives and often forget to focus on the details of their relationship. If you want him to open up, you have to ease him into it; otherwise, you might scare him away. And finally, men aren’t mind readers. If you feel a certain way, you need to tell him because he probably won’t figure it out on his own. Armed with this love advice, you’ll be ready for your next date!

Single in Stilettos Show: How to Talk About Being Exclusive with Your Partner

Posted In: Dating Advice Videos, Relationship Experts, Single in Stilettos Shows Articles, Videos

On this week’s Single in Stilettos show, founder Suzanne Oshima and dating coach Robert Manni discuss how to talk about being exclusive with your beau. The author of The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to Love shares five important things to remember when you bring up this subject: make sure it’s a good time to have a serious conversation; do it in person; let him know it means a lot to you; never give him an ultimatum; and remember that it’s about what you both want.

Related Link: Robert Manni on How to Get a Second Date

Ultimately, it’s a conversation between the two of you. Although you may be focused on sharing your feelings with your partner, be sure to listen to him in return. Pay attention to how he responds. If he says he’s just not ready, respect his wishes and be patient. However, if he says he doesn’t want to be exclusive with you, it may be time to move on.

Q&A: Should I Be Concerned About My Man’s Social Network Activity with Other Women?

Cupid's Pulse Article: Q&A: Should I Be Concerned About My Man’s Social Network Activity with Other Women?

Question from Jane C.: This guy and I have been dating for a few months now, and everything is going great, but I sometimes get bothered by the way he interacts with other girls on social media. It will pop up on my Facebook Newsfeed that he’s liked a bunch of girl’s photos or commented on some girl’s picture. Should I read into this, or am I just being paranoid?

Related Link: Is It Okay If My Boyfriend Texts His Ex?

Suzanne K. Oshima, MatchmakerWhen you’re dating someone exclusively, it just means that you’re not going to date other people. It doesn’t mean that he can’t be friends with other women or like their photos on Facebook.

However, that being said, his behavior could be inappropriate based on the type of photos he’s liking or commenting on. If the photos are innocent in nature, then I wouldn’t be so worried. But if the photos are sexy or provocative photos of the women and he’s making inappropriate comments, then it’s definitely a red flag that he may have a wandering eye. Not to mention the fact that it’s completely disrespectful to you! If the tables were reversed, I’m sure he wouldn’t appreciate you liking and commenting on photos of other men with their shirts off or flexing their muscles.

It’s not something that I would say you should break up over. However, it is something that you should keep an eye out for.

Paige Wyatt, Reality StarThe way people interact online can give you a good insight to their personality. In your boyfriend’s case, he seems to be flirty and outgoing. He doesn’t think twice when he comments on girls’ pictures or posts on their walls because that’s his personality. He probably doesn’t see anything wrong with it. His online interactions are completely innocent to him because he doesn’t think too deeply into them. Although it may not be a problem to him, it is for you. It’s important to be open and honest with your feelings and opinions, so let him know what you’re thinking. Otherwise, he may never change his behavior.

Related Link: Should I Delete or Unfriend My Exes on Social Networks?

Robert Manni, Guy’s GuyIt’s called social media for a reason. People connect online and socialize. Unfortunately, a lot of guys raised on social media think the way to score dates is sitting in front of their laptops in their tightey whiteys and hitting on random women. And that could be the case here. Without knowing the parameters of Jane’s relationship, it’s easy to condemn this guy for blatantly flirting while he’s dating Jane.

If they’re in an exclusive relationship, Jane might ask why he’s so friendly with these other women. If he’s evasive or she doesn’t buy his answer, she has some choices. She can put up with it (not recommended), return the favor and also flirt online, or start dating other people — at least until he realizes what’s good for guys can be very good for the ladies.

Single in Stilettos Show: How to Get a Second Date

Posted In: Dating Advice Videos, Relationship Experts, Single in Stilettos Shows Articles, Videos

On this week’s Single in Stilettos show, founder Suzanne Oshima talks to Robert Manni, author of The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to Love, about how to get a second date. It’s easy to get him to say yes to a first date, but securing another night out with the right guy can be a bit trickier. Here are some tips that Manni recommends following: have confidence; don’t drink too much; dress the part; talk about your dreams; have a conversation and really get to know him; and send a “thank you” text afterwards.

Q&A: Should I Tell My Friend Her Crush Has Been Facebook Messaging Me?

Posted In: Relationship Experts, Suzanne Oshima, Paige Wyatt and Robert Manni Articles
Cupid's Pulse Article: Q&A: Should I Tell My Friend Her Crush Has Been Facebook Messaging Me?

Question from Amelia S.: This guy who my friend has been hanging out with a lot will randomly message me on Facebook whenever I’m online. It’s always harmless stuff like, “What are you up to?” but it still catches me off guard. Should I tell her, and if so, what’s the best way to bring up the subject? 

Suzanne K. Oshima, MatchmakerYou know that saying “you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place?” Well, guess what? You’re in a no-win situation! From what you said, it sounds like your friend just likes him and isn’t dating him yet, so “technically,” she can’t get upset that he’s contacting you. Now, I say “technically” because we both know that, if you tell her, she will be upset and hurt.

Now, while you may think that his messages to you are completely harmless, men don’t do things without some sort of intention. Without knowing the entire situation, I’m going to guess that he’s not just looking for a friend and that those harmless messages are going to lead to something more.

So here’s my advice to you: If you truly value your friendship with your friend and have no interest whatsoever in this guy, then I suggest you ignore his “harmless messages”…because it’s just going to lead to a no-win situation for everyone involved.

Related Link: Should I Delete or Unfriend My Exes on Social Networks?

Paige Wyatt, Reality StarAbsolutely tell your friend that this guy has been messaging you. If it truly is harmless, he won’t be embarrassed or upset if she brings it up. If he does have an ulterior motive, then you warned your friend, and it’s now her move. It’s much better to be honest with your friends about situations like this one. If you didn’t tell her and she found out, she may get upset with you. If it really is nothing, then what’s the harm in letting her know?

Related Link: Can You Tell By Someone’s Social Network If They’re The Relationship Type?

Robert Manni, Guy’s GuySome say where there’s smoke, there’s fire. In this case, it’s hard not to miss the smoke — but let’s not rush to judgement. When a guy is really interested in a woman, his focus is on her, and he curtails his flirting. Maybe this guy just wants to establish good relationships with his leading lady’s BFFs. Still, I’m not sure if this is the best way to do it. He must know that girlfriends talk. And when friends talk about the curious actions of a guy, his behavior and character go under the microscope. At this point, I’m not sure that’s in his best interests.

As for you, for now, I suggest you either ignore his Facebook messages or keep the exchanges polite. Over time, his true intentions will surface. When they do, you can determine if it’s necessary to let your friend know about his correspondence.
