standard Do YOU Have A Routine Stack?

SwankLife.comThe concept of a “routine stack” when it comes to dating seems so contrived as to almost be offensive to any guy who looks at the opposite sex as something more than another notch on the bedpost. The Pick Up Artist dictionary defines a routine stack as:

“The combination of routines that can be used interchangeably and stacked together during interaction.”

standard How to be a Nice Guy and Still Get Dates

SwankLife.comConventional wisdom can be pretty rough on a nice guy. They finish last, never get a date, and might as well pull a Thelma and Louise and drive a 1966 Thunderbird off a cliff. We’re here to say, “Nice guys of the world take heart. It’s really not as bad as all that.” In fact, here are a few ways you can clean the clock of that bad boy in a black leather jacket the woman of your dreams “thinks” she wants.

standard How to Let The “Other Girls” Know You’re Off The Market

SwankLife.comDating more than one girl can be a ton of fun but what happens when, horror of horrors, the astounding realization strikes that you’re ready to get serious with one? How do you handle breaking it off with the other girls without getting kicked in the place where it hurts a whole lot? The simple answer is that you’re going to have to be a man about it. That’s right, man up, and face the challenge head on. Accept up front that all the ones getting dumped are likely to be royally ticked off at you because they’re going to feel like you chose another one over them – which you did. The trick is in handling the situation so you can part as friends rather than dueling police reports.

standard The Rules for Texting Girls

At first it seemed like a godsend, right? Dash off a few lines of acronymnese, an abbreviated collection of "words" that basically lets her know, yes, I am thinking about you every single waking moment and then I dream about you at night.

standard Multiple Girlfriends – Nirvana or Hell on Earth?

SwankLife.comAny dude with experience in the field will tell you that one girlfriend can be a handful. Why on earth would you want to spread yourself thin across multiple relationships? That way lies madness and a possible hernia. Let’s backtrack slightly. We’re not saying there’s anything wrong with dating different girls in the same week. That’s a perfectly legitimate way to meet more women and troll the waters for one you REALLY like. But to have more than one serious girlfriend at a time? Bad idea. In the first place, you’re probably going to have to keep the girls firmly separated and not even acknowledge that others exist. Not many women will tolerate a multiple girlfriend arrangement.

Incredulity? Most certainly. You mean THE Prince Wills and his fiance' Kate M.? Of the English royal family? That's the one we're talking about. The same royal family that descended into soap opera melodrama for what seemed like the entire decade of the 1990's when Princess Diana divorced Prince Charles and Sarah Ferguson (Fergie) divorced Prince Andrew.
