This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

It’s in the Kiss

November, 10, 2014

I have some male sources willing to pass on dating insights so long as their identities remain anonymous. None of them want to be wining and dining a woman and have her read his mind because she read about him. We’ll call this crew, The Mystery Men. They are a direct contrast to guys I interview on my site who don’t care about letting out their secrets and their identities.

If you don’t want to make the first move in a romance, one of our Mystery Men clued me in to three ways a girl can let the object of her desire know she’d like him to kiss her. He assures me that if she follows any of these tips, he should get the message pronto.


Pop a Mint. Casually popping a mint in front of your date is like saying, “Okay, I’m ready for action.”

Lick Your Lips. Subtle is the key here. You’re just trying to do something to draw his attention to your mouth. Like any other flirting tip, if it’s overdone, the guy can think you’re strange.

Slow the Pace. As the evening winds down and the chemistry builds, slowly move closer and talk less. If he asks you a question, you might pause before responding or give a shorter answer. As this Mystery Man said, “Slowing the pace gives a guy more opportunities to kiss you.”
