Girls Night Out With Schick Quattro For Women

January 16th, 2012 — 8:07pm

What does your choice of razor say about your dating style? According to the folks at Schick Quattro For Women, quite a bit.

To celebrate the launch of its newest Quattro razor, the brand has created a Facebook quiz — What’s Your Dating Trim style? Answer a series of questions to find out whether you’re foxy, classic, spontaneous, planned, etc. Now through February 29, fans of Schick Quattro For Women’s who take the quiz will receive a $1 coupon for the brand’s TrimStyle razor.

Schick unveiled the promotion during a recent girls night out event at NYC’s Bryant Park hotel.

Flirty cocktails at the event highlighted the different Dating Trim Style types

Guests also got a sneak preview of the new web series that Schick is sponsoring, The witty, entertaining show (from the producers of Gossip Girl) has a clever premise — what if you could get advice now from your future self? — and a twentysomething cast with all the sass and charm of Sex and the City ‘s ladies. Definitely worth watching.

The evening’s featured speaker, dating expert Andrea Syrtash, author of He’s Just Not Your Type (And That’s A Good Thing) shared some advice. When it comes to first dates, Syrtash advises– 

“Be your vacation self — be present and don’t overanalyze. Ask yourself, ‘Am I having fun with this person? Am I curious to know more?'”

 Andrea’s other top tips for giving your love life a makeover this year:

  • Take risks and get outside your comfort zone
  • You can’t have intimacy without vulnerability
  • Surround yourself with people who bring out your best
  • Be passionate and love your life

“Relationships are hard work — dating should be fun,” Syrtash says. 

Agreed. How do you plan to add more fun to your dating life in 2012?

Celebrating 2ChicksINC At Cellar Bar

November 17th, 2009 — 1:51am

Thursday night, I headed over to the swanky Cellar Bar at NYC’s Bryant Park Hotel for a tweetup organized by social media maven and dating blogger .

Cellar Bar: The cavernous, candlelit space is long on ambience and service

Celebrating the launch of new website 2ChicksInc, the gathering attracted about 35 Twitterers and gave me the opportunity to finally meet in person some of my favorite fellow bloggers. In addition to Simone, I chatted with The Lost Plum, Under-Employed Girl and Tomfoolery, as well as Yahoo dating columnist and author Andrea Syrtash.

I ended up spending most of the night talking to Peter, a charming IT systems designer with a penchant for helping bloggers revamp their sites in his spare time. Born in Germany and now living in Utah, Peter shared his take on the differences between U.S. and European dating. Dating abroad, he said, is an easy, organic process.

“Here, it’s like a job interview,” he observed.

An especially tough job, no doubt, when you’re residing in Mormon country where most folks marry young. I assured him he’ll find a completely different — and, of course, much more populated — singles scene when he moves here for a three-month stint.

Who knows? Maybe I can help show him the ropes.

MENu Dating Launch Party

September 18th, 2009 — 5:30pm

Earlier this week, Haute Look threw a swanky party at NYC’s Bryant Park Hotel to celebrate the launch of “MENu Dating: Taste Test Your Way To The Main Course.”

The new book by Tristan Coopersmith and Todd Johnson offers a fun and fresh take on dating — encouraging women to go out with as many different types of men as possible without fixating on settling down.

At the MENu Dating Soiree: Tristan and me

Tristan, who’s absolutely charming (and gorgeous) in person, told me that – much like eating tapas, it takes sampling a lot before you know exactly what you like and don’t like.

MENu Dating arose out of a little experiment between Tristan and Todd. Friends since childhood, the two decided to help each other interpret the opposite sex. For 90 days, neither could make a move in their love life without the other’s approval.

“Todd and I dated largely and lively,” she writes, “enjoying each and every moment of it.”

The duo tested their theories on scores of friends, and both Tristan and Todd have found their respective soulmates. You can’t argue with that kind of success.

MENu Dating is a must-read for singles. It’s a wonderful reminder that the road to happily ever after can be an adventure — especially when you’re willing to step outside of your comfort zone and do some taste testing.
