Rachel’s Ramblings:Where to get the girl of your dreams in 2012

So possibly most men have been up and about with the same old boring strategy, in the same old boring place, wondering why they just can’t find the girl of their dreams. It’s really simple actually—it’s a new year and so, new rules are applied. I am not saying go to a plastic surgeon and have your entire body changed, No. Simply try out other places and do things differently too, preferably more maturely.

It’s really simple actually—it’s a new year and so, new rules are applied. I am not saying go to a plastic surgeon and have your entire body changed, No. Simply try out other places and do things differently too, preferably more maturely.

For starters, there has never been a better place to get ‘the girl’ than a church! For some reason, most people’s resolutions include becoming stronger in faith or going to church more often. Besides the fact that you will be in that church to actually pray and not just look around for the fairest of them all, is the fact that some decent girls will be there probably waiting to score as well. (And I do not mean that kind of score!)

Now, every woman (whether she is 300kgs or just 30kgs) has it on their list to hit the gym.  Chances are gyms might be packed this January depending on how faithful women are to their resolutions. Once there, behave! Do not go around jumping on every girl that passes you by. Find one and start from there. Do Pilates or Yoga—hell you can even do summersaults if that is what it takes to get the girl of your dreams.

Shopping is every girl’s friend (well at least girly girls) regardless of how financially handicapped people are in January. If it means going all the way to Nakumatt from Kimironko just to buy deodorant and a toothbrush then she will. You see, it’s more about window shopping than it is actual shopping and the bigger the shop the better. So try your luck there.

Now this might not go down well with some chaps but one place guaranteed to help you out is the salon. So maybe most men think salons are not for them or getting a pedicure is not macho; for one, women like a guy in touch with his feminine side (by that I mean well kempt but not queer).  Do not just stop at your local barber shop as the only thing you will get is the haircut and some lazy gossip from your barber unquestionably about his baby mama drama.

Bars are so last season plus with the curfew now, you best believe they are dead ends. Try non- chaotic and possibly executive places. There are always women having a girl’s night out. Places like Hotel Lemigo, and Top Tower Hotel among others, have a really serene and relaxing environment any woman worth her salt would rather be seen at. Let us face it, there are some places your typical ‘serious lady’ wouldn’t be caught dead at, however that will be a topic for another day.

Now, much as you might have a few clues on where to go, one thing that will surely keep that lady running in the opposite direction is your dress code. Dress like a man: this is 2012 and not the 80’s. That box cut or whatever it is young chaps like doing to their hair should be banned! Women are always going to look for a new type of man in a new year so they’ll be looking for a visual difference. Hike those pants up brother (none of that sagging nonsense), walk like you mean it, not attempting to fly—some call it bouncing—and throw on some non-prescription glasses, cardigan, loafers and buttons up; you click?

You do not have to act different (though any silly habits should be kept in the dark for a while at least). Simply look different and make it count. By this, I mean let it last at least more than five seconds! There you have it, now go get your girl!
