Welcome to the Wild and Whimsical World of Internet Dating

Shopping for a date? Three classic come on’s

Flirting at the Grocery Store? fruits-82524__180 Suddenly Single: If you are newly-single and think Active Flirting can only take place in a bar or at speed dating event – think again. Every day is an opportunity to meet new people. There is no expiration date on flirting. On your next trip to Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Safeway – get your Flirt On. Here are three true stories- twisted to protect the innocent.

Wine – The next aisle over:

A woman, standing in front of the Merlot selections. A guy walks up – no wedding band, she says, “Hey, does Merlot go with barbecued steak or just Pinot Noir?” He says, “Cabernet. And the Rosenblum https://www.rosenblumcellars.com/about-rosenblum is good. Do you like wine tastings? Rosenblum Cellars has this great Wednesday night wine tasting.  It is pretty cool and a mere ferry ride away- in Oakland. You should check it out.” She, captivated – listens, continues with the conversation. He helps her select a Cabernet and a Zin. Smart guy, he gives her his card. She says she’ll call- she is over the moon. He’s pretty thrilled. too. And so it begins.

Say Cheese: The Cheese Counter You say, to the other person- who looks to be single “Excuse me. Hi. I see you have the Comte. Do you think it is as good as the Manchego?” Or Hey…, do you have any idea- which cheese goes best with Champagne? It’s my older brother’s 55th birthday and I’m giving a party…” (Note: the plethora of subtle clues in one short sentence.)

In the Bag: Allow me! I would be happy to help…. Kevin C shop sat San Francisco’s famed Rainbow Grocery Store and was the self-proclaimed,  King of Flirting – you could see him chatting-up women right and left. However, his true piece d’ resistance was his friendly offer to help you bags your groceries (Rainbow Policy: Just Do It – Yourself) Kevin C. claims you can tell more about a women by the groceries she selects than all the chit-chat exchanged in any singles scene. Bagging groceries and flirting were Kevin C’s path to success- he met Kalinda – two years ago- and they have walked down a few aisles together. C’est fini. Kids, try these at home. Speak to people – say ‘hello’ more often. Remember: smile more, flirt more and you will have more fun. Guaranteed.

Truth is a great flirt.
