    I can see you, all of you guys out there who signed on to this forum hoping it would change your love life by molding you into this seducing Romeo. Well if you find the posts repetitive or the information not as useful as you once believed, maybe it's time for you to improve yourself. I'm not saying go work out to get that six-pack or improve your dress style... that's a given. I'm talking about being more intellectual, more mature than the next guy.

    Don't take this as a praise of nerdiness and loserdom. What I'm trying to get you guys to understand is far deeper than that. If you want to impress a woman, talking her ear off about the Super Excel XV6372 Turbo Microchip with dual processors (you get the point) isn't going to work. Instead try becoming well-read and less ignorant of the world around you.

    Get out there and learn a new language. Hell, learn two. Learn about a different culture or country; become a citizen of the world so to speak. Women love a smart man, so show her that you're not a dunce. Dumb guys don't last long in conversation because their topic list is limited. Besides, in this day and age, being less provincial is a good thing for people in all types of careers. Dealing with people from various backgrounds on a daily basis is rapidly becoming everyone's reality.

    If you're dating a woman and you want to make it more serious, know that women go into relationships often wanting to gain something from them. If you introduce her to a whole new world/culture be sure that she'll be less inclined to dump your @$$. You'll come off as different, rather as unique and she'll love you for it. You're not lot every other A&F d*ckhead out there; your knowledge goes beyond US Politics and the NFL.

    While studying your new language and culture, why not travel to that country. Get to know the world. You'll have stories to tell and you wouldn't ever realize how important it is to know a nice cafe in Paris where you can take that special someone. Take a look at The Thomas Crowne Affair or any James Bond flick. These characters may have the confidence and all that other blah blah, but notice how knowledgeable they are. Notice how easy it is for them to adjust to new surroundings.

    If you're still not buying my advice, try this on for size- knowing a foreign language may help your chances of grabbing that exchange student before the other horny f*cks do.

    One last thing guys... learn how to dance, please. My eyes hurt seeing some of my peers "busting a move" on the dance floor. Try to fit this dance thing into your anthropological exploits (ie the culture-learning task I mentioned).

    Get at me if you need help with any Romance language, or if you have questions about which one to go for...

    I agree with your point, Stefano, about learning a foreign language. I think many women want to flatter themselves by thinking that they are not just screwing some ape for his cash, but are sophisticated enough to draw the attention of the worldly, intellectual world traveler.

    Plus, I think every guy benefits from the New-Kid-in-Town syndrome, particularly when you are a US citizen in a foreign country.

    I am a history major and got a minor in German!! learning a second language is so valuable, epsecially here in the US where most people only know one. When I was in Germany, i could tell the natives were impressed that an American was speaking German and they appreciated it!! Unlike the french, who did not even appreciate your attempt. They would rudely interrupt you in the middle of your sentence to correct u!!

    After reading Don Stefano's post, I have to share this with you guys.

    There is an International organisation that you can volunteer to do work with. You pay for your airfares to a foreign country and for a small fee they give you accomodation and allow you to contribute to worthwhile projects.

    Definately character building stuff and a great way to see another country.

    Check out which ever site seems most appropriate to you. (SCI has offices in most countries. Go to their site a do a search for yours if I haven't listed it)
    www.sciint.org - international
    www.sci-ivs.org - US
    www.ivp.org.au - Aussie
    www.ivsgbn.demon.co.uk - UK


    I'm interested in doing one of these so called "work camps" but I'm too busy to do so right now.

    If anyone is game enough to embark on one of these adventures then please let me know how you go.

    Cheers.
