Some Humorous Tactics Men Use to Get a Woman’s Attention - Part 1 by Vivienne Diane Neal

Some men do and say the oddest things to get a woman’s attention or to strike up a conversation. Whether the man’s interest is sex, dating, romance, love, friendship, a casual relationship or marriage, some of the strategies used by individuals may be appealing to some women, humorous to others and downright weird to most.

Depending on your age and intentions, I would like to meet you or the mating call techniques may vary. Your main objective is to get the woman interested in you first, and then let nature take its course. Whatever methods you use, you may blow your chances of ever getting to meet that woman who stands out from the crowd.

Years ago and maybe still today, whistling at a woman, to get her attention or to scare her away, was the manly or unmanly thing to do. However, one might continue to ask, “What does whistling accomplish, and does one think this type of communicating is appealing to women?” If you are a member of the bird species, perhaps this type of behavior might work. On the other hand, if you are into birds, and she happens to be a bird enthusiast, then maybe a connection will develop. However, you would have to be a mind reader to know if she is a bird lover.

Then there is the “Hi baby, what is your name?”  This may not work, unless the female is an infant. Subsequently, there is the man who will wait until he passes a woman, and without warning will mutter, “Hello.” What is that all about, and what is a woman to do: turn around and respond to the man who is halfway up the block or run after him and ask, “Sir, were you trying to get my attention?” If you are attracted to a woman walking towards you, make eye-to-eye contact and then say, “Hello.”  Better yet, do not say a word. Just keep walking.


Part of 2 of Some Humorous Tactics Men Use to Get a Woman’s Attention will conclude on June 4, 2012.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to chat with One World Singles Magazine Blog.

Who or what inspired you to become a dating/relationship coach. I was inspired to become a dating coach because I was a serial dater. I would date so many different women and then I realized that I was really good at talking to women. Also, I’m really passionate about helping other people in their dating lives. I went through so many mistakes and I didn’t want people to go through the same things I went through.

You have written several books on dating/relationships, which came first, the writing or the coaching. The coaching came first. I actually used to coach some of my close friends before I even really considered taking this seriously. Then I started to make videos and write articles and post them up online. I got such a great response from people from all around the world. I would get emails from London and Australia. After that I decided to put out my first book called “The Magnificent 10 Crucial Dating Tips for Men” then I wrote my second book which was for women called “It’s Your Fault You’re Single: Tips on finding Mr. Right” and finally my third book “How to Have Sex with 2 Women a Day”

You are also a rap artist and an actor. In fact, one of your books, “How to have Sex with 2 Women a Day,” became a short film. What type of feedback have you received about the book and the film? How to Have Sex with 2 Women a Day the book is basically a “How to” step by step book that teaches men how to step up their game and have more options to have more sex and dates in their dating lives. The feedback has been awesome. The funny thing is I had a lot of women who were mad at me for writing that book. What women don’t realize is that book also helps them out in the long run because when men learn how to talk to women and have more options to be with the type of women they like to be with then they will make better choices if they choose to stick with one girl at the end of the day. Most guys just take what they can get because they have no game. So I always ask women do you want to be with a guy who just settles down with you because he feels like you are the only woman he can get, or do you want a man who knows he can get any woman he wants but decides to stick with you because he knows you’re the right woman for him.

I made the film as a way to promote the book. It has been getting a great response. I had no idea it was going to come out that good. There is actually no written script; it was all improv. I actually had a few celebs hit me up telling me how much they enjoyed the film. I want to make it a full-length feature film soon.

As a dating and relationship coach, what are some of the most valuable lessons you have learned? I learned that you have to be a good listener and you have to be honest. 

What advice would you give someone who is thinking about becoming a dating and relationship coach? I would say that if you are going to be a dating and relationship coach that you do your research and you should have a dating life. You should also be honest with the public and not do it just for money.

Are you planning to write any more books in the near future? I have another book coming out for women called “The Magnificent 10 Crucial Dating Tips for Women, and I’m also writing books for teaching men and women how to be successful with online dating.

How can our readers get in touch with you? You can contact me at or my blog site You can also follow me on twitter at @realmrlocario. If anyone wants private coaching they can contact me at

Thank you for allowing us to dialogue with you. Do you have any words of wisdom for singles that are forever searching for true love? I would tell anyone who is single and who is looking for someone special is to make sure you love yourself first and you know what you want out of a relationship. If you love yourself and know what you want, you will attract people who want the same things that you want.

How to Recognize When Your Lover is Playing You by Miss Know It All

Miss Know It All

The signs are always there. For some reason, many women choose to ignore them when someone is playing them for a fool.

When a man becomes unemployed and has no money to fall back on, and is not contributing to the household, this is a revealing sign that you have become his financier. Therefore, your antenna should be working in full gear. The message should be loud and clear. You need to kick this one to the curb.    

However, when he has the nerve to ask you to buy him a gym membership so that he can keep himself in shape in order to find a job, and because you love him, you oblige him. It has now been a year and you have not received any payments from this man, and he is still unemployed. By now, you should realize that this person is playing you for an absolute fool.

Now, if you opt to continue supporting this individual, then that is your business. When he depletes your funds and ruins your credit, and leaves you high and dry, he will move on to next person. Your course of action is to take him to civil court and sue for monetary damages, which you may or may not receive.

So, when it comes to romance and money, heed to the warning signs right from the start. Sooner than later, a player will always show his true colors.
