Okay, so your pushy best friend combed the dating websites and posted a pretty witty profile — as you! Now there’s a real, live guy who wants to get to know you. You’re meeting him for a martini on Friday night. He sounds really, really terrific and you’re really, really terrified.
Settle down. It’s all going to be fine, because you’ll have dating feng shui on your side. That’s right, you can use the ancient art of feng shui at home and on your date to enhance this evening. You may never have to go surfing for your soul mate again.
We’ll begin in the back right hand corner of your bedroom. Some simple shui techniques here can help create a long-lasting and, of course, loving relationship. Make sure you don’t have anything in this area that relates to any long-lost relationships. Lose the old love letters. Put two pink candles here in glass or crystal holders. From now until the date, light these candles as frequently as you can. They will spark a flame in your heart and bring a new love into your life. Placing a sexy little negligee somewhere in this sector will heat up the action as much as the two lit candles will.
Be sure to have something on hand to stimulate each of his five senses. Add a drop or two of ylang ylang essential oil to a low-wattage light bulb to stimulate scent-ual romance. Keep music at hand. You already have the candles but massage oils, red sheets and something sweet to eat can also help you prepare for a potentially explosive evening.
There are rules for the restaurant, too: Allow him to talk to the hostess or maitre d’ about your seating. Be sure when you’re seated that he gets the chair which either faces the front door or has it’s back against a wall. This puts him in a position where he will feel confident, courageous and sure of himself.
For a traditional twist, tell him what you’d like to have and then let him order for you. If you like your martini slightly shaken, not stirred, let him pass this information along to your server. Lastly, don’t jump for the bill when it’s presented at end of the evening.
If you follow these tips in good faith, they’ll.bring you good luck, more positive outcomes and maybe even a walk down the aisle.
