Hello hello! JALBC‘s relaunched the biz blog and now that I’ve restructured my contract with JDate.com™ to only write 1 article a month for them, you’ll be receiving a lot more articles on this blog! From dating advice to the cool events in town I’ll be attending now that the weather is well…not so cool, to the what’s what of the the JALBC news, be sure to check back for regular updates.
We’ll start the week with a nice little link roundup:
Read this article from The Date Report about the 10 Things Guys Should NOT Have In Their Bedrooms. I’ve spent the last week interviewing the man panel (you know, the wickedly smart men that I use to pick their brains for the benefit of you, my dear readers) to find out what girls shouldn’t have in their rooms — you’ll find what they’re ok with pretty shocking — and that article will be posted sometime this week.
Read this article from Refinery 29 that I wrote about Where To Meet Your Boyfriend In Chicago. This piece holds one of my most effective tips: that the easiest place to meet a quality guy is somewhere where you’re doing something and no, drinking doesn’t count.
Also, this week is JALBC’s first “Ask A Hottie” post— this is where you ladies can send over the questions you’re too afraid to ask a man but that I’m not, and I’ll torture politely ask them to the current week’s volunteer. Answers will be posted every Friday.
This week’s specimen (who wrote this text message) is the “pretentious surgeon” aka my date to the symphony, who’s agreed to help me “pen an article about the pitfalls of dating pretentious surgeons.”
Any questions for him? He’s pretty hot, smart, Ivy-League educated, quite a catch, and brutally honest.
Send them over to mel [at] jalbc [dot] com with subject line Question for the jerk and I’ll make sure to ask away.
Questions must be received by 5pm Thursday 3/22/2012 to be eligible for Friday’s post and if you request it, I will post them anonymously. You can also tweet them to @jalbc_mel with the hashtag #askjalbchottie
You can also volunteer to be one of the future Hotties. We’re taking requests for the week of April 1. You don’t need to be single but you must be prepared to answer some tough questions!
