Dating

I promised to occasionally sprinkle some sugar on my nutritious postings, and as I prepare to be the best man at my friend’s wedding this weekend, I thought I’d give you a former student’s encouraging story. I hope you’ll see that breakthroughs in dating don’t often come in an instant burst of glory. Sometimes it’s a modest flash of accomplishment in between struggles. Mike was in his […]

Podcast with Rob: Online-Dating Profiles

by GK on February 22, 2011

As part of Online Dating Month, I’m linking to a site I’ve studied since beginning my little Match.com experiment. OK Cupid, a free dating site, maintains a blog updated with compelling, if not bulletproof, statistics about what its users find attractive.

I’m tagging in the great Rob Overman to close out 2010. For those of you who are returning to dating or have never really done it, he offers a structured plan on succeeding at it, and I think it should be required reading in schools all over America. Instead, you’ll just have to read it […]

A letter for us guys, from Big Red

by GK on April 20, 2010 · 4 comments

I found the Esquire article below on my friend’s entertainment blog, and as I recently shared dating advice from one woman on this blog, why not another? Especially when she’s the sexiest, curviest redhead in this galaxy, and she appears in my favorite TV show. And I named my guitar after her.  Christina Hendricks, better known as Joan Holloway of “Mad Men,” […]

Be yourself, and she’ll follow

by GK on April 14, 2010 · 3 comments

Another week, another guest blogger here at Club GK. And unlike Augusta National Golf Club and the Catholic priesthood, we do accept women.   Actually, the writer I’ve invited would probably prefer to be called a girl — that’s one thing I like about her. Her name’s Vivian, and she runs a wit-laden dating blog called Bread and Boys. Two of my favorite […]
