ADVICE GUY Valentines Day copyValentine’s Day is upon us once again, and you know what that means. It means my inbox has been bursting at the seams with lonely hearts begging me for dating advice. I’m not one to say no when it comes to advice of any kind, so here it is. The Advice Guy’s Top 7 tips on how to impress the ladies this Valentine’s Day.

Be careful what you ask for fellas! The wisdom here contained may just make you more popular than you could ever wish for. Maybe you might want to just sit and look at the TV, watching a rerun of Happy Days, but there’s some woman grabbing at you. It happens. You just need to decide what you want: TV or women? If you said, “Happy Days! Yeah!,” then this list isn’t for you.

1. Starting Conversations

00205 man woman conversationFirst of all, and this is probably the most important to keep in mind, it is NOT up to you to start a conversation. It's up to her, and if she fails to say anything  interesting in the first twenty minutes of the date, then it's okay for you to get up and leave. Life is short. Remember that. You don’t want to waste one precious minute sitting around with a girl who isn’t going to say anything good. You don’t have to explain yourself, and you don’t even have to say goodbye. Just get up and go.

2. Finding out her Zodiac Sign

goatFind out as soon as possible what her zodiac sign is. As clichéd and corny as this may sound, it serves an important purpose. If she says that she is a Capricorn, end it with her right then and there. Just walk away and don’t look back. Capricorns, ALL Capricorns were conceived in a lake of fire with the single goal of dragging you back to Hell with them. Do you need that?

3. Compliment Her

feet 300x225For some reason, girls like to be complimented. There is something about external validation that sparks within them a heightened state of arousal. If there is nothing obvious about them to say anything good about, compliment them on their feet. For example, you could say, “You got nice feet. It’s cool how symmetrically proportionate they are to each other.” Another area to target is the face. You might want to say, “I like how symmetrical your eyes are to each other.” Or, “You sure got a purdy mouth.”

4. Give her Chocolate

Hershey Kisses 225x300It's important to keep in mind that all girls everywhere like chocolate. Therefore, it is to your ultimate benefit to carry a bag of Hershey’s Kisses with you. Be careful though that your date does not eat more than two or she will get fat, and that will make it that much harder to find something to compliment her on.

5. Make Eye Contact

staringGirls feel comforted and safe with you as long as you maintain eye contact with them. I suggest while you’re waiting for them to start a conversation, you look in them in the eyes and hold their gaze as long as you can without blinking.

6. Ask Her Name

In this case, just ask her. Say, “What did you say your name was again?” Ask her this as many times as it takes for you to remember. “What did you say your name was again?” The girl will appreciate the effort and it will show that you really care.

7. Take an Interest in her Family

And that’s pretty much all you need to know. Master these things and you too shall be popular with the ladies and have an outstanding Valentine’s Day this year. And hey, you’re welcome.

Jim Larsen began his Fool’s journey in the fall of 2004 when working as a government contractor, he literally heard the call of tarot spoken in his mind with the words “Jim, study tarot.” And Jim listened. Buying his first tarot deck that very day, he put himself on a path that completely altered his life in ways he didn’t see coming. From the government offices of the Washington D.C. metro area to the volcanic jungles of Hawaii, this path has led Jim to such places as India, China, Switzerland and more.

It is has been in his travels that Jim discovered the vast storehouse of esoteric knowledge that we, as incarnated humans, carry within us. Each of us- we all carry in us the wisdom of the ages. This wisdom is there for our benefit. All we have to do is tap into it. Jim’s personal word for this storehouse is “The Silence” for it is accessed through meditation, bliss, joy, and moments of ecstatic joy. It is not reached in those moments when the mind is engaged. It is reached when the mind is quiet and we have no need of thoughts.

It has been through Jim’s exploration of The Silence and his voracious journaling of his encounters there that he has gathered the material for his popular “Knowings from the Silence: Simple Wisdom from an Enlightened Life” series of books as well as his tarot take on The Silence- “What’s Tarot Got To Do With It?: The Fool’s Path to Enlightenment.”

Jim is also the author of “The Double Oh Fool’s Guide to Tarot Mastery” and “Art is the Best Revenge: Poetic Deviance by Jim Larsen.” What’s more, Jim is a renowned poet and humorist on the Big Island of Hawaii. He has dappled in film making, t-shirt design, and has made a name for himself in both improv and standup comedy. Jim is a Reiki Master, Deeksha Blessing giver, tarot card guru, theHonolulu Tarot Card Examiner for and the creator of the Fool’s Path Tarot Deck, available from his website,
