I love La Bamba! I sang it in the choir in high school and I have the Selena rendition on my mp3 player now!

I think it is true that mild B.O. can be sexy to some women. Setting the scene for seduction works when there is already mutual attraction and not before.

The details might be dated, but the advice is solid. To set the mood choose the appropriate music and don't stink...

No offense, but are you gonna go to the first IBM computer ever created to learn how a computer works? A lot of time has passed since and things have gotten a lot smaller thanks to the invention of the microchip. What worked in their days may be irrelevant now.

You're saying that every little bit helps............I'll tell you a story. I read a lot of books, articles, magazines, etc, and women are being advised to put a piece of bacon in their purse or smear it somewhere (like their neck or hair), because men love the smell of bacon (women do too). This is dating advice from various women's magazines. So I don't fault you for the whole licorice tidbit, though I personally cannot stand the smell of something so bitter and nasty. The smell of chocolate on the other hand..................even my shower gel is "chocolate fudge" and so is my body scrub.

If you want to make a good impression, make sure to smell good, and by good, I mean wear a cologne that smells very good on you. Cologne is nothing to be cheap about, find one that smells great on you, test it out (get a sample at Sephora), see if women respond to it, take note, and buy it no matter how expensive it may be. Don't wear it all the time, just on special occasions, like when on the hunt. Carry an atomizer with you with a sample, in case you got someone on the radar at any given moment.

But what really helps, what really really helps distinguish you from the others is ultimately how you treat a woman. Show her respect, listen to what she says, respond in kind, show concern for everything that she is (not just the hole you may want to stick it in), inquire later about what she has already disclosed to you, make sure she gets home safe.......etc. Ultimately, women want to be with someone who treats them well, someone who makes them feel safe, someone who is as attentive outside of the bedroom as he is inside of it. If you're only there for what you can get, it will be obvious and women are not generally attracted to selfishness, as most women are naturally generous with everything they do.

As apparently an elderly guy I'll have to agree with Bell on this. Also with the cologne suggestion. You have to find what works with your body's chemistry. :)

Just cringing at the thought of "old man smell" combined with black licorice...

I saw all those AXE deodorant commercials on the TV with all the good looking chicks so I used some when I ran my 1/2 marathon.
I had all these good looking chicks chasing me off the start line. Guess I wasn't fast enough and they just blew by me. So much for AXE.
Maybe I'll try licorice next race

I've heard of it, but I doubt the scent of licorice would get me going. I've never been a fan of 50s songs either.

But what will really give me that edge if not black licorice and 50s tunes?
I wear cologne, have a six pack, humorous, relatively good looking...
Maybe I just need more money, but I'm still in college for another few years. Should I just stay single until then?

It isn't about tangible things, it's about your attitude and approach to it.

If you're in college, you have access to college girls. As long as you're not living with your parents, and aren't worse than an average college-guy poor -- you're OK. I think your main issue is your mindset, as you're viewing (the dating) life thru some weird lenses that is only tripping your needs up. IMO, you'll have to change who you are -- to the extent you hear stories of older people talking "Yeah, so it wasn't until like my junior/senior year of college did the light bulb go off about how things flow with girls and dating!" Good news is, it's a game of checkers, not chess. You must unlearn what you have learned.

OP how about wiping off the smug grin and the fist and posting a normal picture? That may help.

Yeah how about I just make a fake profile talking about how big a wimp I am into emotions cuddling and girly things. I'm not trying to attract some chubby bottom feeder.

apparently you are not trying to attract anyone with any feelings either.

Congratulations on one of the more superficial postings I have read here- and that is saying a lot.

Don't get so defensive. I'm not looking for high-maintenance immature women with daddy issues anyways. Superficial? Please, get over yourself.

How do you determine ONLINE who has daddy issues? I'm curious what your diagnostic criteria are.

You mean like when a poster said this....

And you responded with this...

Sounds kind of defensive to me.

Lady has a point. You come across as an arrogant little snot. Only thing you know about alpha male is how to spell it. Never seen anyone sneak into an NBA locker room shower to take selfies, I'm well over 6 ft and never had a hand dryer on the wall that was even close to chest high....or a trash can higher than your waist...lol you're 5'8"-9 at best.

Mind your manners little man. :/

He is just trying to find his way, like most everyone else. He forgot not to rise to bait.
If we would like people to stick around ( even as whipping boys) why drive them off>

I love when old geezers think they are still tough. Settle down gramps before you poop yourself. I am 6ft, so maybe less time on the internet acting like a tough guy behind the safety of your computer and more time challenging your brain because you're showing signs of senile dementia.

You're a bit of an arrogant little fvck. You haven't come close to earning your attitude yet.

Obvious troll.

On topic: Thanks for all the dating advice. I do have a date coming up through the help of PoF, but I wont share any details because I'm such a gentleman. I'll make sure to swoon her with lots of cologne and talk about all the things I'm proficient in.

I am sure she will have a wonderful time. Chubby bottom feeders don't get out much, after all.
