Ways to be less intimidating
Apply lipbalm to your lips and then apply a little red lipstick over the top.
Alternatively, apply a little lipbalm to the back of your hand, top with some red lipstick, then mix together and ‘dab’ lightly on to your lips.
I particularly like using lip stain pencils when I am on holiday, as they are lower maintenance and give a softer effect to the lips.
Products to look out for: One of my favourite products is Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain in ‘045 Romantic’ (see below).
Here is a list of ways in which you, my friend, can be less intimidating to the opposite sex (narrowed down from different issues of women’s mags): Here is my take on all this: Smile More!
These types of products can help you get used to wearing red in a more natural and muted fashion.
I would never discourage you or anyone else from shooting their shot, but just keep in mind that this is bull. Some people appreciate the flattery flirtation, while others do not. So, do not allow the popular beauty magazines to have you believing that there is something wrong with you because you don’t fit the “10 Things Men Love about Women” list. There is someone even several others in the world who will enjoy the rhythm of your drum roll. I.: This is the first post of many devoted to the terrible dating advice I have received over the years.
So, keep on marching in time, you’ll meet another with whom you’ll make beautiful music. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy laughing while typing it all.
However, the only relationship I had going on in most instances was that with my studies. So, I’ll file this under “NOT ALWAYS TRUE.” Be Assertive, Speak Up Again, if you want to do the pursuing, then by all means, hold this as your personal truth. If someone is interested, it wouldn’t matter if you were shy or the most aggressive person in the room. There are different strokes for different folks, relationships are healthiest when you are able to mature with someone whose stroke is in sync with your own.
You could speak up a thousand times, but if the person of interest isn’t eager to vibe with you…well, you know the rest. In short, whether you are a diamond in the rough, or a diamond shining brightly to be seen by the masses, who is for you will be for you.
