Last night at Image Powerhouse was an enlightening hosting experience.
The Singles Mixer Event held at the studio was a successful one. I loved playing the matchmaker fairy at the party while interviewing guests for our 3rd Webisode. Watch the first one on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_SJ71xGqUM&feature=youtube_gdata_player
Here are my top 3 insights from the mixer:
1) Purely platonic relationships do exist. I found an attractive girl and guy together- thought they were a couple at first, but they were just genuine decade-long friends. Both agreed they’d acknowledged one another’s attractiveness- but essentially knew how much more valuable their friendship was. It was an awwww moment.
2) Be with someone who lifts you up. One married gentleman mentioned the reason why he’s become successful is because of the woman he’s had by his side through the journey. His wife, he says, is low maintenance both emotionally and financially. She doesn’t ask for material things, nor does she require tons of attention to feel loved. So, he is more apt to give in those two departments- and it’s appreciated. “You want to be with a woman that makes your life easier.” Ahem- a mom replacement, ahem. I do agree though. We all need someone who simplifies our lives, not complicates it. Simplicity is key.
3) One of my interview questions for the men in the room was: What are the top three things you look for in a gal? Personality, physical attractiveness/nice smile, and charisma seemed to be the most popular answers.
So in conclusion, girls- be financially and emotionally independent, love yourself, and use Crest white strips/ accentuate lips with moisturizing lip balm and show off your smile- whether you are single or not!! x
