1. Sandy Weiner – Last First Date

Helping women achieve EPIC love in midlife.

What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

As radio host of Last First Date Radio, every week, I interview people on the cutting edge of research into healthy dating and relationships. I bring that knowledge, plus my background as a certified life coach, to my work and writing. Unlike other dating coaches, I specialize in helping women communicate effectively, set clear boundaries in relationships, and value themselves.

I believe a woman of value attracts her best partner.

1.1 Sandy Weiner – Last First Date

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date? 

Do not send a thank you email or text the day after your first date. It diminishes your value (most men like to chase).

Do thank a man during the date. Thank him for choosing the venue, for coming out to meet you (especially if he's traveled), for treating you to coffee/tea/lunch. If you want to see him again, be clear and tell him, “I had a great time tonight. I'd love to do this again sometime. How about you?”

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

Kindness, emotional responsibility (takes responsibility for processing their own emotions and for expressing their feelings and needs to their partner), generosity—of spirit, of heart, and of pocket!

Our special touch rely on our writer's work– each writer is able to utilize their own personal experiences to enhance their story. Because each relationship is different, we know that it is important to emphasize differences we may have in our own writing styles and thrive on this.

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

It is critical that when you are preparing for the date, you allow yourself enough time to get ready. Being punctual shows that you care about the date, and are taking it seriously.

Arriving at the date, be conscious that your date may be nervous- just as nervous as you are, or even more nervous.

As the date concludes, do not assume the other person to pay for a date. The date should be a pleasant night for both to enjoy—so come prepared. Showing your independence and confidence is extremely admirable, and even sexy.

In contrast, there are many things that should be avoided on a first date. This includes mentioning your ex and sex. Mentioning your ex tells your date that you may still be living in the past, not living in the present, and not looking towards the future.

Having a great sex life isn’t a bad thing, but for many it is a private matter. Discussing your sex (how good you are at it, speaking triumphantly about it) may leave your date wondering about your promiscuity.

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

Every relationship has unique qualities that add to the experience of that particular relationship. Across the board, the most important quality that you can have is strong communication skills. Regardless of the type of relationship (friendship, romantic relationship, etc.) being able to communicate and understand each other is critical.

What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

Confessions of a Terrible Husband: Lessons Learned from a Lumpy Couch shares experiences and stories from a marriage that was once on the brink of disaster. The lessons taught were not learned from formal education, but rather from real-world experiences of a terrible husband working hard to improve his relationship for his spouse and kids.

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

You will immediately improve the potential for a successful first date (and your odds of finding lasting love) by being very intentional about how you spend your time.

Want to meet someone who loves to hike? Find a local hiking group and go have fun, with no agenda except for having fun and meeting like-minded people. By putting yourself in activities that you enjoy, friendships and relationships will form naturally that allow you and your new friends or romantic partners to share joy while truly being yourselves.

3.1. Nick Pavlidis – Confessions of a Terrible Husband

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

  • Effectively communicating early and often so that expectations are known from the start and small challenges don't grow into large problems
  • Being selfless, looking for outcomes that benefit him (or her, or us), based on what you know about your partner's wants and needs, instead of just “what's in it for me.” The best relationships are those where each partner believes that if something matters to their partner, it matters to them, too
  • Constantly learning and growing, spending time learning about how to be a better dating partner or spouse and how to grow in your relationships. Make sure you don't spend more time comparing the per-square price of toilet paper than you do learning about improving your relationship!

Love Victory–Helping You Become Brave, Smart and Intuitive about Love, Life and Work

You in 7 descriptive words?

Caring, Trusted, Wise, Accepting, Intuitive, Inspiring, Fun!

What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

It's very important to me that you know that all my advice and books are based on years of exceptional post-graduate degree training and on tested, doable exercises and findings from my decades of solid research from over 10,000 couples I've counseled, and on the careful research of other mental health professionals.

My clients and research participants have taught me as well, and as a result, I know the questions you want answered, and the issues that cause you emotional anguish.

I don't offer advice that is cute or trendy or quick fixes–but instead grows your emotional bravery and intuition so you can feel confident in your decisions in life, love and work.

Smart-Relationships-Cover

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

Dating and risking falling in love are not as scary if you take time to know if your feelings of loneliness, hurt or anxiety are propelling you to overlook the person's problems or to grab the next “okay-enough” partner.

Focus on training your intuition to be correct so that you won't have to struggle with “should I listen to my head or my heart.”

Don't put only your “best foot forward” on a date–otherwise you won't get a chance to see how your date handles your quirks such as being picky, late or clumsy!

Be careful about over-correcting your previous dating pattern by, for example, thinking that a nice but meek partner is a better choice than the successful but controlling partner you just had.

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

  • Doing the hard work of knowing YOU
  • Working as problem-solving team that shifts quickly to shared solutions rather than blame, criticism, sarcasm, retaliation and shutting down emotionally
  • Respecting and liking your partner–and liking and respecting The You Who is You in this Relationship

5. The Dating Diary of a City Girl

5. The Dating Diary of a City Girl

You in 7 descriptive words?

This is tough one, I had to get help from friends! Independent- it's good to have a man around, but I've learnt to do everything myself, because if you have to learn to depend on yourself above all, tenacious – I'd like to think that I go after everything I want and do everything I can to achieve my goals, caring (hopefully), stubborn- not the best one, but once I set my mind on something there's no going back, loyal – friends, family and relationships, adventurous – whether it's travelling, general knowledge or trying new things in bed, forward – I tend to say the first thing that comes to my mind, without thinking twice (not always the best trait to have I guess)

What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

My articles are based on my experiences, therefore the personal content makes it more relatable and authentic. I will admit the mistakes I made and will accept that I messed up quite a few times, but the essence of what I'm trying to convey is that it is perfectly normal to make mistakes – in fact, the whole point is to make them, learn from them, keep the memories and move on!

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

I guess the most important thing to remember on a first date (which is the absolute yes), is to be yourself and be genuine – smile, make conversation and don't hold back.

Your true self will come out sooner or later, so no point in trying to be someone you are not on a first date, just to impress. There's no one like you out there, so don't ever try to change that. Stick to natural make up and casual clothing. Overdressing and three layers of foundation is an absolute NO!

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

It's about time to admit that this is trial and error. We all had our share of relationships and many ended. But if I were to remember what made mine work I would probably say this:

  • Laugh together – there is nothing like having a similar sense of humor and being able to laugh with your heart with your other half, until your tummy hurts and your eyes tear up.
  • You can be your own person and still be in a relationship – just because we are with someone, our whole life doesn't revolve around them. You should still be able to do things on your own and allow space for your other half to do the same.
  • You are friends above all – the most successful relationships are based on friendship. Your other half is your best friend above all (but not your only friend). Someone once told me that the only difference between a partner and a best friend is that you only sleep with one of them – I guess I'm only now starting to realize how true that is.

Laura Gub - Brand You Max

You in 7 descriptive words?

Curious, bold, observant, empathetic, nonjudgmental, entrepreneurial, creative.

What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

  • I aim to adopt a light humorous tone, to make the blog enjoyable.
  • I tackle a broad variety of issues within the subject matter.
  • I base my blogs on real events and situations and on my own 8 years of experiences in online dating.

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

  • Keep in mind that it's a meeting of equals, don't feel pressured to impress over and above.
  • Wear whatever you feel comfortable in, it will help you feel relaxed, no tracksuit bottoms, though.
  • Keep the conversation and the alcohol intake light, leave your ‘party face' for a future occasion.
  • Give your full attention to your date, no fiddling with your phone, and smile as much as possible.

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

  • First of all you need to be committed, suggesting the relationship is important to you.
  • You need to be yourself, to be honest, mainly for your own benefit, as suppressing your true self will lead to resentment.
  • You need to be appreciative of the other person, of their good qualities, even if you have issues with their bad ones. On that note, don't adopt accusatory criticism, but aim to negotiate a compromise for the future for whatever situation, habit you want to be altered.

9. Me and Dating by Grey Knight
Modern dating as seen from a man’s point of view comes with many surprises, some of which are naughty.

You in 7 descriptive words?

Explicit, honest, fresh, innovative, daring, chivalrous and gentlemanly.

What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

Mine is a tale of our times, for our times. It’s about modern dating as seen from a thinking man’s point of view. It’s refreshingly open and honest account about one man’s experiences – much of it naughty – in his quest to find his true love.

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

NO
1) Do not be late.
2) Do not complain about your life, your job, your family, your friends. In essence, don’t be negative.
3) Do not engage in conversation with other people more than necessary. Especially do not use your phone unless it’s an emergency.

YES
1) Make an effort to dress smarter than the venue you’re going to expects. That makes you look classy.
2) Look like your photographs. Resist the urge to use old photos of yourself.
3) Offer to split the bill if dining out. A man who is interested in you will pay the bill, but you need to offer to pay to find this out.

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

Honesty, respect, patience. It’s that simple.

I strive to connect with my audience in a manner that empowers them while doing so from a supportive, nurturing position. The task is to remind them that they already have the answers— and that they’re continually being guided by their own truth.

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

There’s no substitute for the supremacy of knowing who you are and what you want. Knowing yourself and being clear on your goals is ‘a must’ for successful dating. These two fundamentals form the basis (and outcome) of your romantic experiences.

10.1 Susan Winter

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

1. Show your partner ongoing appreciation.

We all need to feel valued, and that our efforts in being a mate are appreciated. This is especially true in longstanding relationships.
Instead of noting our mate’s flaws, make it a habit to shift the focus to what they’re doing right. A sincere, “Thank you” and “I really appreciate that” is a powerful tool for creating harmony, passion, and happiness.

This is my # 1 quality for creating and maintaining a successful relationship. Positive reinforcement gives our mate a tangible reason to want to please us. It makes them feel loved, while encouraging kind behavior. We, in turn, become the beneficiary of this loving attitude. Love grows upon love.

2. Master the art of constructive communication.

Good communication is routinely noted as being the key a successful relationship. However, we’re given very little direction on “how” to communicate properly with our partner.

When we express our discontent it’s often a form of complaint, accusation or nagging. Constructive communication includes “why” an issue is problematic for us, and our “preferred behavior” as to how that issue could be more effectively handled.

Stating our “why” gives our partner valuable insight as to the basis for our emotional response. It grounds the validity of our feelings in reasons that makes sense, rather than sounding like orders stemming from the need to control. Sharing our “preferred behavior” gives our partner a road map to work from and a guide to conflict resolution.

10.2 Susan Winter

3. Continue to cultivate play and adventure.

As couples get into their routine of day-to-day life together, they often forget to have fun. Remnant non-work hours end up being used for errands, and other personal tasks.

Scheduling interesting activities together allows the couple to play, relax, and get lost in their adventure. It sparks growth, and activates our biological reward centers.

Playing together relieves stress while it strengthens the couple’s connection through joy and pleasure. It serves as a positive reminder of why we chose this person to be our mate, and why we continue to choose loving them.

What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

I am very real, transparent, vulnerable, and authentic in the things I share and the work that I do with my clients – I teach by example and practice what I preach. I also am super open – non-judgmental, compassionate, empathetic, loving – so will go wherever I need to go or wherever my client needs me to go so that they have the kind of love and relationships they dream about. I have a way of making people feel safe, loved, and like they are the most important person in the world.

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

BE HONEST! This means be honest about what you want ultimately, about who you are, about what your likes and dislikes are, etc. You want to let someone know what you need, so that they can decide if they can and want to give those things to you. Also, you want someone to fall in love with who you actually are, and not a projection or mask of you.

So an absolute NO to pretending, pleasing, projecting, and morphing who you are into what you think the other person wants of you. An absolute YES to being yourself, showing up as the bright, quirky, unique, beautiful individual you are, and sharing of yourself openly and honestly

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

1. Compassionate, Honest, Loving Communication, which includes openly sharing desires, fears, insecurities, wishes, wants and needs
2. Commitment to your own Growth, which includes Self Responsibility and Inquiry
3. Commitment to the growth of the relationship, both parties are willing and able to do what is necessary to strengthen the foundation and cultivate a thriving connection

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

My top first date tips for women:

1. Chivalry is Not Dead – Us strong, independent women sometimes forget to allow the man to embrace his chivalrous side and let him lead. If he wants to open the door for you, pay for drinks – let him.

2. Attention – Give your date your full attention, after all, it’s the only polite them to do. Don’t be looking around the room, even if there is a hot guy that walks by. We would certainly expect the same from our date.

3. Don’t Play Games – if you like the guy, let him know. Give the wee soul a sign so he is not left guessing. You many think by intensely staring into his eyes he will be able to read the twinkle in your eyes, trust me – he needs more of clue than that.

4. Have Fun – dating is supposed to be fun! Don’t’ go along and share your whole life story and your heart breaks on the first date. Keep it light, keep it fun and talking about all your great qualities.

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

1. Communication – without clear communication, blurred lines happen, assumptions and resentments can build. By agreeing how you will communicate and sticking to it ensures that you are both on the same page. Even when faced with difficult conversations – the only way through it is to communicate about it.

2. How Do They Like to Be Loved – Find out what their love language is and you are onto a winning formula. There are 5 different love languages – quality time, touch, gifts, words of affirmation and touch. We are naturally accustomed to showing our affection in the way we like to receive it, where by your partner’s Love Language maybe complete different to yours.

3. Never stop dating – We can easily get caught up in the day to day grind and forget about taking real quality time to date and spend time together. It could as a simple as romantic dinner, a picnic or a drink at a bar – what ever it maybe, put it in your diary and make sure it’s a regular feature.

What is that “special touch” what makes your blog/work different/unique/authentic?

As a former speed dating host, I got to talk with a lot of people about the dating process – their frustrations, their hopes and fears. There’s nothing I love more than bringing a fresh perspective to people, specifically how to have more fun with dating, especially skeptics.

It’s easy to get lost in the bad date stories, but I love encouraging people to see past them to the possibilities of love – we just have to get out of our own heads.

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

What a woman should NOT do on a first date is to start with a bad attitude. Even if you had a bad day at work, don’t bring it to your date – go for a run, get a massage, call a friend. Do what you need to do to let it go, because it sucks the energy and fun out of a potentially great date.

And what you should ABSOLUTELY do on a first date would be to keep an open mind and get to know a man beyond the quick first impression! The ones who are typically the best boyfriends aren’t the most charming on first dates, so we end up dismissing potentially great men.

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

Communication. It’s crucial to keep the lines of communication open with your partner, because you won’t always agree and you both have different perspectives that are valuable. In a successful relationship, you should feel free to speak your mind.

Compassion. It’s easy to become critical of all the things that annoy you about your partner, but constantly voicing this criticism only puts him on the defensive. Instead, approach him with kindness and compassion – let him know what he does well, how much he does for you, and then what your needs are. Trust me, if he feels loved and appreciated he will go out of his way to make you happy!

Respect. Relationships only work if there is mutual respect between partners. If you feel your man isn’t treating you well, or is only concerned with his needs, then it’s time to speak up – and the reverse is true, too! When you respect each other, you support each other’s goals, perspective, and wisdom, and both of you are more satisfied in the relationship.

I'm one of the few women I know who **truly** celebrates all women. I have so much compassion for the challenges women face in love. My clients and fans feel that, and appreciate I only share advice and tips that have proven to work for me personally and with my most successful clients.

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

FOR WOMEN: You don't find your worth in a man. You find it within first – then choose a man worthy of you. Women who truly embrace this make a great first impression every time and choose the best men for themselves.

FOR MEN: Never put a woman in the position where she has to chase you. Be proactive. Call her, travel to see her, rearrange your schedule around hers. That's what wins a woman over.

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

1) When a man does something that makes you happy, don't forget to inform your face. They need to know their winning with you.

2) Cultivate a strong friendship with each other from the start. Couples that laugh together – last together.

3) Once a year, plan a special retreat weekend together dedicated to aligning with each other's vision of your relationship and life together. Doing this re-ignites intimacy and ensures your on the same page.

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

Try to stay present and in the moment and not get carried away with what you want it to be. First dates need to be about having fun and getting to know someone.

Absolute NO: never talk about the ex and past relationships on a first date!
Absolute YES: Dress to impress! Wear something that makes you feel and look beautiful and confident.

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

Compatibility: This goes beyond just common interests; do you want the same things? Do you values, goals and morals align? Do you like each other as well as love each other? There’s no point marrying someone who you just want to change all the time. Fall in love with the reality not the potential …
Communication: Good effective communication is key to everything. Problems don’t just manifest out of nowhere, you need to not only talk, but listen to your partner.
Commitment: This means CHOOSING to stay committed to your promises, your words and your relationships daily regardless of how your feel.

Absolute YES for a girl on a first date to make an impression is to be honest, stay in what you desire versus what you think he's thinking, and do you choose him instead of wondering if he is choosing you. Absolute NO trying to act like the cool easy going girl.

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

Owning that your own feelings and thoughts are yours and not because of the other person. Knowing the intention and energy through which you are communicating is everything not what is being said. Understanding the person first, so they can give you back the same.

Keeping my blog anonymous means I don't have to hold anything back. I blog in great detail about the ups and downs of being a single mother in her thirties, trying to navigate friendships, relationships and a sex life. Anonymity grants me the opportunity to be completely honest and open and I don't hold back, no matter how embarrassing or awkward the situations I find myself in…and there are a lot!

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

Do NOT talk about your exes. It should be so obvious why this is a bad idea and yet so many men and women fall into this trap which makes you look like an emotional wreck and your date feeling like the rebound.

DO wear something you feel sexy and comfortable in. Pulling at a top or having to readjust your pants isn't attractive. When you're worrying about your clothes you aren't engaging fully with your date and that is just plain rude.

YouQueen's Question: By your opinion what would be 3 most important qualities for successful relationship?

I am a complete failure at relationships so it seems silly to ask for my advice, however I see one thing happening time and time again that brings a relationship to an end and that is people losing themselves in a couple.

Keep your friends, your social life, your own interests and hobbies and encourage your partner to do the same. Being part of a couple doesn't mean you should lose your own identity and having interests outside of each other means you will never run out of things to say or ideas of things you can do together.

Exclusive tip, how to or recommendation for YouQueen readers: General first date advice? Absolute NO and absolute YES for girl to make great impression on first date?

1. Make sure that you look super cute without trying too hard
2. Be on time.
3. Drive yourself. That way, if you aren't feeling the guy, you can leave when you want and in the day and age that we live in, every man that you go on a date with does not need to know where you live.
4. Don't make the entire conversation about you. Ask questions to get to know him.
The absolute yes to make a great first impression on a first date is to not only look super cute (but don't look like you tried too much) is pay attention to what he is saying. Try to get to know him by asking questions about him. Guys love that.
An absolute NO is keep your cell phone in your purse. Nothing is more of a turn off than someone messing around on their phone when you are trying to talk to them.

First date absolute NO: Do NOT go to his house on a first date period!!!
