Check their Fridge

A Dating Guide

Prologue: Winter 1998

We’ve all been there: on a date when we get that first invitation back to their apartment. Considering I made out with Haley in the street on our last date, one thing was certain: tonight I was going to see her topless.

Factoring that in with her preppy looks, her Princeton education and her Jewish background, I guesstimated that I had a 50% chance of sex-sex and a 40% chance of something even more personal to women than sex-sex: oral sex ... Read More

Fridge Analysis


  Lisa just moved from NY to LA, and sent me her fridge pix.  To switch up the format today, Lisa and I hopped on the phone to discuss her fridge. Here are some highlights…
  
  -Stonehill


Lisa
What’s the difference between dating in LA and NY?

Stonehill
Dating is basically the same anywhere.   I truly believe you find your own.  A change of scenery can do you some good, but the fact is, whatever issues you have in one city, they’ll follow you to the next.

Lisa
No differences in people? 

Stonehill
Do you believe in stereotypes?

Lisa
Religiously.

Stonehill
Okay, here’s 2…
1. LA Women are Hot.  But NY Women are Beautiful.
2. LA women dress like NY women.  They just wear the outfits when they’re 20 years older.

Lisa
Number 1, love.  Explain number 2.

Stonehill
Take a pair of camouflage cargo pants.  They’re worn by a 20 year old model in Williamsburg.  They’re worn by a 40 year old mom in Beverly HIlls.

Lisa
Thank God I left my pair in NY. 
(Jumped ahead)
And what’s my fridge pix tell you?  I think I’m nervous.

Stonehill
Don’t worry, I have soft hands. The fridge model tells me you decided to rent.

Lisa
Yeah, I wanted to see if I liked it out here first.

Stonehill
Smart.  Obviously, this mindset affects your dating.  You don’t have roots here and still open to men from other cities.

Lisa
True.  Though I hope I like it here and decide to stay.

Stonehill
Well, there are a lot of great restaurants here.  You clearly eat out most of the time.

Lisa
Like every night.  How do you know?

Stonehill
Helen Keller can feel her way through this one. You have nothing to make a meal and hardly any condiments for takeout. You’re probably busy with work, and trying to discover your new favorite places.

Lisa
Go on.

Stonehill
You’re life looks a bit more hectic and stressful than you expected.

Lisa
I feel like you’re my shrink.  Why?

Stonehill
Your fridge is kind of a shithole.

Lisa
(Laughing)
Can I blame my assistant?  I’m so embarrassed.

Stonehill
Don’t be!  It’s good to know how we come across to people.  Always be yourself, just be your best self.

Lisa
What else?

Stonehill
That Zucchini in your freezer.  Has it been that long?

Lisa
(Laughing)
Not even going there.

Stonehill
Well, with 2 bottles of vodka and vino, you’re prepared.

Lisa
I was a Girl Scout.

Stonehill
It shows. Now, your spending habits are some of the strangest I’ve seen.  You have generic brands for your seltzer and peanut butter, yet expensive bottles of perfume.  You’re consciously trying to save money where you can, but you’re used to an upscale lifestyle and can’t budge on certain fronts.

Lisa
My Grandma taught me.  Never compromise on smell.

Stonehill
Go Grandma.  Lastly, you’re in shag shape.   You’re watching calories via the diet soda, almond milk, seltzer and that cream cheese substitute, which must taste like an albino turd.

Lisa
On a toasted bagel, slightly better.  Okay, dating scores, please.

Fridge Dating Scorecard  (on scale of 1 to 10)

Bang on first date: 7.5
I’m going high on the bang front.  The bottle of wine, 2 bottles of vodka and frozen zucchini tell me you’re good to go.

Marry: 5
I’m going middle of the road on this one.  You have the courage to move to a new city, and have a fruitful career, but you’re also in the midst of transition, with perhaps 1 too many balls in the air.

Boil your Bunny: 4
Your fridge tells me you’re too busy to boil bunnies right now.  That said, not sure what those C batteries are for, which raises a red flag.

Grazia Magazine

Check Their Fridge has scoured the world for fridges, and what they reveal about our dating lives.

Our latest stop is the Netherlands.  I teamed up with journalist Jill Waas and leading Dutch magazine, Grazia, to peek into the fridges of NL’s up and coming stars.

Second up is Dutch hottie, Yvonne Coldeweijer: http://tinyurl.com/pmpxj3s.  Checking her fridge, here’s what men should expect on the dating front…

I’m not a brilliant man, but I’m pretty sure there are a few things we can all agree on:
1.  The Dutch know how to speed skate.
2.  Global warming is real.
3.  Yvonne is seriously saucy.

Now, I hate to admit my mother was right about anything, but she was about this: we are what we eat.  Nothing says more about who we are than what we put in our body.

Dating is never an exact science, but what’s in our fridge can reveal a great deal about us, from our health to lifestyle, income to our sex life.

When it comes to Yvonne’s fridge, here are few things it tells us:

Yvonne looks good naked

There’s a classic formula that dates back to the dawn of man: healthy diet + proper exercise = 1 bodacious body.

Yvonne is clearly eating well.  She has a hearty stash of fresh berries, salads, fruits and veggies.  She also has turkey breast, which is low in fat, and hummus, a two for one special: healthy as well as a shareable food that’s perfect for hosting a date. (Which I’ll further touch on below)

Now, on the exercise front, Yvonne has Red Bull to fuel those workouts (and occasional space dive) and as she has only 1 bottle of water in her fridge, I assume that’s for on-the-go, as it’s not her primary water source when she’s home.

If you’re not taking care of yourself when you’re single, you’ll most likely look even worse when you’re married.  Our schedules get tighter as we get older and the time we have to hit the gym and eat well shrinks as we have a mortgage to pay and kids to raise.

Life is a balance.  And Yvonne is balancing quite well.

Yvonne eats meat

Though we wish it otherwise, dating is not black and white.  Just what’s right for us.  Personally speaking, I like a woman who eats red meat.  I’ve found there is a direct correlation between a woman’s love of beef and boning.

That’s not to say there aren’t many very saucy vegetarians out there.  But in general, food is life.  It’s intimate.  It’s what keeps us going.  If we deny ourselves our love of food, we often deny ourselves in other areas in our life as well.

And lets face it: it’s kind of hot when a girl can kick back with a burger and a beer.  Survey says…bing!

Yvonne drinks

Some of my closest friends are sober.  I just couldn’t date them.  Again, that’s what works for me, not everyone.

I happen to be a drinker.   I’m not an alch, but I love a drink after work and a bottle of wine with dinner.  And I need a partner in crime.  One of my favorite getaways is when my wife and I spend a weekend in the wine country.

Now, can Yvonne build a happy life with a dude who won’t touch the sauce?  Of course.  But lets face it: why the hell would Yvonne want to drink alone?  It just ain’t fun.

Yvonne is Date Ready

When we’re single, it’s so important to be date ready.  What do I mean by date ready?  I mean when the love train comes along, we’re ready to hop on.

There were times in my life when I avoided intimacy to keep myself on the outside looking in.  I wouldn’t take care of myself physically and by doing this, I’d subtly close myself off to other people.  Now, I don’t care if you’re a size 2 or a size 12, it’s important to feel comfortable with who you are and how you look.

On the dating front, we all love a good host.  In a healthy relationship, our boyfriend or girlfriend becomes friends with our friends and vice-versa.

It’s clear from Yvonne’s fridge, that she’s a born host and as date ready as they come.  She has snacks to serve a date before or after dinner, cheeseburgers for a late night snack and eggs and OJ come morning.  Plus, she’s catering to other people’s taste with enough beer and wine to properly grease the rails to Saucy Town.

Do I think that’s why she’s buying all these things?  No.  But being date ready does put us at ease, even if it’s subconscious, that when opportunity knocks, we’re ready to answer.

Fridge Dating Scorecard

Shag on 1st Date: 6

With such a date ready fridge and all this booze on standby, the possibilities are endless.  The caveat is, I get the feeling Yvonne is a GND.  (That would be a Girl Next Door, one of my fave types of ladies)

A GND is the type of girl we played tag with as kids and woke up 20 years later unable to believe we didn’t want to shag her all long.  (Think Betty in the Archie comics)  A GND can drink beers with the guys and have them over to watch a ballgame.

As I imagine Yvonne has plenty of guy friends, I imagine she’s been advised to hold off on the horizontal hula until at least Date 2.  Thus, I have to drop her a couple of points.

Marriage: 9

There’s no such thing as a sure thing.  (Outside the red light district, of course)

But Yvonne is a five-star prospect, which is as good as it gets.  She eats well (but not crunchy over the top), exercises, drinks, digs meat, is ready to host and is financially independent.

Now, there’s a sports expression: that’s why you play the game.  Meaning, no matter how good a team looks on paper, you never know what’s going to happen on the field.

It’s the same with dating.  We’re all a little crazy.  And whether Yvonne is a match for you, I couldn’t say.  But looking at her fridge, at the very least, she’s sure worth getting to know better.

Boil your Bunny: 2

Bunny Boilers are usually OCD.  They’re scary.  They give us the heebie jeebies.  There’s a reason we still have nightmares about Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction.

I don’t see that here.  Yvonne’s fridge just works.  It’s clean and organized, and like life itself, has a necessary balance.

Elle Woods said in Legally Blond, “happy people just don’t shoot their husbands”.  Per Yvonne’s fridge, and the lifestyle it supports, Yvonne looks pretty damn happy.

Throwback Thurs

Here’s the fridge analysis that started it all…

Dear Stonehill,

I met this girl earlier tonight doing Jello shots and just got back to her place. She’s in the bathroom, so I took this photo of her fridge, tell me what you think ASAP!

-Adam B

Stonehill Analysis

Adam, for starters, I don’t work at two in the morning on a Tuesday, so sorry I couldn’t help you.

That said, considering you made it back to her place without having to take her on a date (and Jello shots did the trick), we’re not talking Mission Impossible here.

Looking at her Fridge Wednesday morning though, here’s what I think you have on your hands….

A troubling Trifecta.

1. She’s cheap.

Adam, look at her brands. I’m not demanding gourmet from a girl’s fridge, but Jesus Christ. Generic ketchup?? A homeless woman can do better than that. If she can’t afford Heinz, limit yourself to one case of Diet Coke.

And canned orange juice? From Texas?? Do they even have oranges there? I’m not saying she planned on taking you home, but she’s embarrassing herself.

And look what she deems leftover-able in the first place…instant Mac and Cheese. With no cover. If she can’t afford Tupperware at this point, she needs to move back in with her parents.

2. She’s loco

Did you get a whiff of all that mold and mildew on the bottom shelf? All her stale leftovers? Her fridge can’t smell much better than a dog park.

Her produce looks older than her fridge.

Bottom line, her fridge is utter chaos, just like her life. A woman who has her shit together would never let her fridge get like this.

3. She’s lacking

In self-awareness. This girl is either way heavier than she thinks she is or just won’t accept the fact that she’s no longer 8.

I mean, she’s still drinking whole milk. They invented skim, like years ago. And the huge stash of Aunt Jamima, ketchup, mac n cheese and eggs tell me she’s downing way too much calorie-heavy kid food, while delusional enough to think Diet Coke is gonna make a difference.

Jello Girl looks fun to have as a friend, but you didn’t go back to her place to play Wii and we’re here to talk dating, not friendship. Thus, I see it as a negative.

Fridge Dating Scorecard (on scale of 1 to 10)

Shag on first date: 9
Loco does equal laid. Though factoring in she’s a party girl, there’s a chance that either one of you will pass, or you’ll be so drunk, your little amigo will.

Marry: 2
First off, she’s crazy and you don’t marry crazy. (You just sleep with them) Second, if she’s eating like this now, imagine what she’ll look like in ten years. It’s chilling to even think about it.

Boil your Bunny: 8
You know who else had a smelly fridge? Glenn Close.

Grazia Magazine

Check Their Fridge has scoured the world for fridges, and what they reveal about our dating lives.

Our latest stop is the Netherlands.  I teamed up with journalist Jill Waas and leading Dutch magazine, Grazia, to peek into the fridges of NL’s up and coming stars.

First up is Dutch heart-throb, Geza Weisz: http://tinyurl.com/my959yb.  Checking his fridge, here’s what the ladies should expect on the dating front…

There’s an old expression…if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck.

There’s a new expression…if he looks like a stud and has the fridge of a stud, he’s probably a stud.

Throw in the fact that Geza’s made out with half the chicks in Amsterdam, and it’s a safe bet ‘stud’ is what we’re dealing with here.  Does he need to shave that cheesy stache on his upper lip?  Naturally.  But there’s no denying he’s one desirable dude.

Now, lets layout the 4 Stonehill standards of stud-dom and see if his fridge provides back up…

1. Good Looking

Geza’s famous, so we already know this.  What most of us don’t know is that he’s looking good on the inside as well.  I’m not a doctor (to my family’s dismay), but I do know a daily dose of fruits, veggies and almond milk is a good thing.  Throw in fish and we have one healthy diet on our hands.

Now, I’m not sure if the Chiquita Banana song made it to the NL, but in the US, it taught us: “Don’t put your bananas in the refrigerator, you wont be happy when you come back later”.  I don’t why Geza’s chilling his little yellow friends, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re for smoothies.

For his long-term potential, what we put in our body will eventually show in our face.  Geza’s downing some quality ingredients, and thus upping the odds his birthday suit will be a good look for him down the road.

2. Life of the Party

For most of us, one bottle of Bombay Sapphire is enough.  For Geza’s late-night soirees back at his place, he’s got two.  With a bottle of Grey Goose to provide back up, the odds are we have a serious host on our hands.  (And in case you male readers didn’t know it, Pelligrino is like catnip for women)

Now, I’m a guy who loves whiskey, but there’s a smart strategy to Geza’s getup.  Gin and Vodka are rarely served solo, so he can show off his bartending skills.  If you think a handsome bloke mixing drinks doesn’t get the ladies, see Tom Cruise in Cocktail.

3. Big Bucks

Lets face it…ladies love rich guys.   (Whether or not they’re a douche is a case-by-case basis)

There are a couple of indicators that Geza is making moola:

He has high-end brands.  Bombay Sapphire and Grey Goose are in the luxe category, as is Pelligrino for sparkling water.  Plus, for his other groceries, he’s buying only name brands over generics.  Generics have gotten better over the years, and one here or there is fine, but all generics = a red flag.
He has a high-end fridge model.  It’s not a Sub Zero or Viking, but it is a Liebherr, stainless steel and in the upper echelon of cost.
4. A Man about Town

Geza has a well-stocked fridge, though few ingredients to make a meal and few condiments for takeout   Thus, it’s a logical conclusion he eats most meals out.

On the condiment front, he can do better than those freebie packets.  I mean, dude, you got looks and fame, time to toss that wasabi and ginger.

Outside of fueling his healthy lifestyle, his fridge’s main mission is to chill drinks.  The man can also kick up an impressive breakfast, a killer date move.  The last time I saw eggs this big was in Jurassic Park.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to dating, nothing is black and white.  (Unless we’re talking Oscar Pistorius)  But when we start adding up clues, we can decipher a pattern and you can look for these patterns in your date’s fridges as well.

For example, can we know with certainty that Geza cares for the environment?  No.  But he does buy PFanner, which is all about fair trade: and that’s a clue he’s buddies with Mother Earth.

Fridge Dating Scorecard

Shag on 1st Date: 9.5

He gets a girl back to his place, it’s a layup.

He has tasty booze, which is the perfect pre-rec to making some bad decisions.  Plus, he’s got shareable snacks, that’s Fridge Dating 101.  (Sharing food creates a level of intimacy and gets the gears rolling)

In addition, the way he’s eating and exercising, he’s in it to win it.  Throwing in his hard body, good luck ladies.  You just might be powerless.

Marriage: 4

He’s got qualities I like to see in a life partner…

He’s taking care of himself and if you can’t put your best foot forward when you’re single, you’ll probably look even worse when you’re married.

Geza is also a good host, another asset to Matrimony Manor.

A red flag is I don’t see a sign he wants to settle down.  He’s probably a social butterfly and a man about town.  This is great for fun, but not for finality.  The guy’s young, he should be living like this.

He just needs to be honest with who he’s shagging.  As long as he’s open, that’s great.  A guy that lies to get a girl in bed = a major dick.

Sleeping with the Enemy: 3.5

This is one neat, organized fridge.   That’s a good sign he has his shit together.

He’s also eating healthy, and exercise is nature’s Prozac.

He does have plenty of booze though and more butter than I’ve ever seen in a man’s fridge.  I’m not sure if Last Tango in Paris is his favorite movie, but he might be taking a lesson from Marlon Brando on that front ☺.

Grazia Magazine

Check Their Fridge has scoured the world for fridges, and what they reveal about our dating lives.

Our latest stop is the Netherlands. I teamed up with journalist Jill Waas and leading Dutch magazine, Grazia, to peek into the fridges of NL’s up and coming stars.

First up is Dutch heart-throb, Geza Weisz: http://tinyurl.com/my959yb. Checking his fridge, here’s what the ladies should expect on the dating front…


There’s an old expression…if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck.

There’s a new expression…if he looks like a stud and has the fridge of a stud, he’s probably a stud.

Throw in the fact that Geza’s made out with half the chicks in Amsterdam, and it’s a safe bet ‘stud’ is what we’re dealing with here. Does he need to shave that cheesy stache on his upper lip? Naturally. But there’s no denying he’s one desirable dude.

Now, lets layout the 4 Stonehill standards of stud-dom and see if his fridge provides back up…

1. Good Looking

Geza’s famous, so we already know this. What most of us don’t know is that he’s looking good on the inside as well. I’m not a doctor (to my family’s dismay), but I do know a daily dose of fruits, veggies and almond milk is a good thing. Throw in fish and we have one healthy diet on our hands.

Now, I’m not sure if the Chiquita Banana song made it to the NL, but in the US, it taught us: “Don’t put your bananas in the refrigerator, you wont be happy when you come back later”. I don’t why Geza’s chilling his little yellow friends, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re for smoothies.

For his long-term potential, what we put in our body will eventually show in our face. Geza’s downing some quality ingredients, and thus upping the odds his birthday suit will be a good look for him down the road.

2. Life of the Party

For most of us, one bottle of Bombay Sapphire is enough. For Geza’s late-night soirees back at his place, he’s got two. With a bottle of Grey Goose to provide back up, the odds are we have a serious host on our hands. (And in case you male readers didn’t know it, Pelligrino is like catnip for women)

Dating Tips from Stonehill’s Bag of Tricks

Always keep a bottle of Champagne in your fridge. There are for 2 logical reasons for this…

  1. Champers is like catnip for women.
  2. Women drinking champers is like catnip for men.

It’s a simple formula:

→ Champagne makes women happy.
→ Happy women love to bang.
→ Happy (and unhappy) men love to bang.
→ Banging makes men happy.
Thus ⊢ Champagne makes everyone happy.

When we look back in life, it’s the little moments we cherish most, not the big productions. To enjoy a glass of champagne for no reason is a better move on an early date than making a big hoopla. (And leaving nothing to build to)

Buy a bottle in your budget. Don’t bullshit money, you have what you have. If someone likes you, they’ll far more enjoy Korbel with you than Crystal with a douche.

Here are three great picks with different price ranges for an early date, not a celebration…

Charles Lafitte Rosé

It’s tasty, has a clean finish and it’s 15 bucks. The sound of that popped cork, pour and bubbles will help it taste far more.

Price: $15

Lanson Brut Black Label

You can enjoy the 4th oldest Champagne house in the world for only 40 bucks. Fruity, floral and it makes a great conversation piece.

Price: $40

Henriot
 2005 Brut Millésime

This champers is delish and I like the fact that it’s been family owned for over 200 years.

I strongly advise to spend this much only if you can easily afford it. If you shell out more than you’re comfortable with, you might force an evening to work that just ain’t working.

Price: $100

When I was a little kid, my father would play tennis on Thursday Nights and if my brother and I were good, there’d be a bag of Dunkin’ Donuts waiting on the kitchen table Friday Morning.

We couldn’t wake up early enough and when we peaked over the railing, if that bag was there, we’d yell out “Dunkin’ Donuts!”, and race down the stairs.

To this day, every time I see a Dunkin’ Donuts, it puts a smile on my face.  And in my 12 years in LA, we’ve never had a Dunkin’ Donuts.  Until now.

Los Angeles…you’ve finally arrived :)

Fridge Analysis


  Hey Stonehill,
  
  Care to analyze my fridge?  be nice.  =)
  
  -Polly


Stonehill Analysis

Be nice??  I’ve been told I’m “too nice” lately.  And “they” might be right.  The problem is too many sexy fridges have been sent my way: a streak that might not be up there with Dimaggio’s, but is impressive nonetheless.

And today, we have another hit on our hands.

I’d love to rag on Polly.  It’d warm my heart to tell her she’ll soon look like Violet in Willy Wonka,  That shopping at Lane Bryant will be as good as it gets.  But tragically, I can’t.  (Damn it!)

Cause I’m looking at one triumphant Trifecta…

1. She’s a Hostess with the Mostess

I can’t say this girl is a lay-up, but with what’s in her fridge arsenal, we might be the lay-up for her.

She’s got champers, wine and beer, and like any mostess hostess, she has glasses chilling in her freezer.  (Which ups any beer enjoyment factor to 11)  Polly is not only prepared to host a date, she’s in it to win it.

She’s also got more than 1 beer brand, catering to more than one taste.  (If all this booze was for her, she’d be too shit-faced to be this neat and organized)  My guess is Polly’s a Girl Next Door, which is a keeper and one of man’s fave archetypes.

To top things off, she’s got vodka in the freezer, a bowl of ice on standby, plus shareable snacks like cherries, pineapple, ice-cream and cheese, so she can expertly kickoff a date, or better yet, close one out in style.

2. She’s got one Bodacious Bod

It’s safe to say Polly has the bonable bod variety.  Her fridge is chock full of goods that lead to a healthy diet, exercise and thankfully for her date, one tight tush.  It’s well stocked with too many fruits and veggies to list, plus lite salad dressings in lieu of fattening dressings, which are literally no healthier than Big Macs.

Throw in Silk Almond Milk, always a winner, Fage Greek Yogurt, a pal of digestion, and as Jamie Lee Curtis taught us, a regular woman is a happy one ☺.

Now, her Fiji Water is evidence of an active lifestyle.  It’s not her primary water source while home, and with charming glass bottles for guests, I assume Fijis are for on the go.  She also has frozen icepacks for sore muscles post-workout.

3. She’s a Money Maker

Speaking of Fiji, it’s the official water of the 1 Percent.  When a 6-pack of 1-Liters runs 28 bucks, you ain’t living on Oodles of Noodles.  I personally wouldn’t buy bottled water in NY, but via my CTF taste-tests, Fiji does taste the best.   (I assume Polly lives in NY as she has Kriemhild Farms butter of the Empire State)

To reinforce Polly’s a brand girl (and minting at least a few Benjamins) she steers clear of generics and opts for name brands like Diet Coke, Silk, Grey Poupon, Annie’s, Newman’s Own and Fage, among others.  Plus, she buys organic eggs, which can run double the normal variety (and a clue she cares for the environment)

Looking at her fridge model, my guess is she’s an upscale renter.    It is stainless steel, but the reflection in the butter compartment on the fridge door is from the kind of florescent lights you’d find in a rental.   (Unless Polly’s decorating skills are on par with the cast of Deadliest Catch)

On the dating front, money does offer flexibility.  By no means does it guarantee she’ll hold out for a gem, but she won’t have to marry a douche to help pay her rent.  And speaking of renting, she’s more mobile and can easily move for the right bloke.

Plus, he won’t have to fight for the home bed advantage, always a bonus.

Fridge Dating Scorecard

Shag on first date: 7
If Polly likes a dude, I like his chances even more.   She’s got plenty of booze to grease the rails to Saucy Town and as a career woman, she has less time to play games.  Plus, I imagine all that healthy diet and exercise isn’t just to stare at herself in the mirror.

Marry: 7.5
I see a well-balanced chica here.  Her fridge is clean, organized and tells me she has her shit together.  (I mean, she even has Even Arm & Hammer to keep it smelling April fresh)

Plus, I see hints of a nurturing quality that will come in handy come motherhood.
And lets face it…no one hopes their spouse will impersonate a blowfish as they get older.

Sleeping with the Enemy: 2
I don’t see any bunnies boiled on her stove.  She has a nice balance on the social front, with plenty of snacks and meals to chill at home, but not too much to prevent her from getting out there and meeting people.  Plus, I see no signs of obsessive behavior here.

If Polly likes a dude, I like his chances even more.   She’s got plenty of booze to grease the rails to Saucy Town and as a career woman, she has less time to play games.  Plus, I imagine all that healthy diet and exercise isn’t just to stare at herself in the mirror.

Marry: 7.5
I see a well-balanced chica here.  Her fridge is clean, organized and tells me she has her shit together.  (I mean, she even has Even Arm & Hammer to keep it smelling April fresh)

Plus, I see hints of a nurturing quality that will come in handy come motherhood.
And lets face it…no one hopes their spouse will impersonate a blowfish as they get older.

Sleeping with the Enemy: 2
I don’t see any bunnies boiled on her stove.  She has a nice balance on the social front, with plenty of snacks and meals to chill at home, but not too much to prevent her from getting out there and meeting people.  Plus, I see no signs of obsessive behavior here.

Fridge Analysis

Hey Stonehill,

Care to analyze my fridge? be nice. =)

-Polly

Stonehill Analysis

Be nice?? I’ve been told I’m “too nice” lately. And “they” might be right. The problem is too many sexy fridges have been sent my way: a streak that might not be up there with Dimaggio’s, but is impressive nonetheless.

And today, we have another hit on our hands.

I’d love to rag on Polly. It’d warm my heart to tell her she’ll soon look like Violet in Willy Wonka, That shopping at Lane Bryant will be as good as it gets. But tragically, I can’t. (Damn it!)

Cause I’m looking at one triumphant Trifecta…

1. She’s a Hostess with the Mostess

I can’t say this girl is a lay-up, but with what’s in her fridge arsenal, we might be the lay-up for her.

She’s got champers, wine and beer, and like any mostess hostess, she has glasses chilling in her freezer. (Which ups any beer enjoyment factor to 11) Polly is not only prepared to host a date, she’s in it to win it.

She’s also got more than 1 beer brand, catering to more than one taste. (If all this booze was for her, she’d be too shit-faced to be this neat and organized) My guess is Polly’s a Girl Next Door, which is a keeper and one of man’s fave archetypes.

To top things off, she’s got vodka in the freezer, a bowl of ice on standby, plus shareable snacks like cherries, pineapple, ice-cream and cheese, so she can expertly kickoff a date, or better yet, close one out in style.

2. She’s got one Bodacious Bod

It’s safe to say Polly has the bonable bod variety. Her fridge is chock full of goods that lead to a healthy diet, exercise and thankfully for her date, one tight tush. It’s well stocked with too many fruits and veggies to list, plus lite salad dressings in lieu of fattening dressings, which are literally no healthier than Big Macs.

Throw in Silk Almond Milk, always a winner, Fage Greek Yogurt, a pal of digestion, and as Jamie Lee Curtis taught us, a regular woman is a happy one ☺.

Now, her Fiji Water is evidence of an active lifestyle. It’s not her primary water source while home, and with charming glass bottles for guests, I assume Fijis are for on the go. She also has frozen icepacks for sore muscles post-workout.

3. She’s a Money Maker

Speaking of Fiji, it’s the official water of the 1 Percent. When a 6-pack of 1-Liters runs 28 bucks, you ain’t living on Oodles of Noodles. I personally wouldn’t buy bottled water in NY, but via my CTF taste-tests, Fiji does taste the best. (I assume Polly lives in NY as she has Kriemhild Farms butter of the Empire State)

To reinforce Polly’s a brand girl (and minting at least a few Benjamins) she steers clear of generics and opts for name brands like Diet Coke, Silk, Grey Poupon, Annie’s, Newman’s Own and Fage, among others. Plus, she buys organic eggs, which can run double the normal variety (and a clue she cares for the environment)

Looking at her fridge model, my guess is she’s an upscale renter. It is stainless steel, but the reflection in the butter compartment on the fridge door is from the kind of florescent lights you’d find in a rental. (Unless Polly’s decorating skills are on par with the cast of Deadliest Catch)

On the dating front, money does offer flexibility. By no means does it guarantee she’ll hold out for a gem, but she won’t have to marry a douche to help pay her rent. And speaking of renting, she’s more mobile and can easily move for the right bloke.

Plus, he won’t have to fight for the home bed advantage, always a bonus.

Dating Advice for Beyond the Fridge

Use your Brains.

There’s a heart-wearing romantic show on VH1 that’s been all the buzz lately…Dating Naked. On DN, one of its contestants, Jessie Nizewitz, is now suing everyone associated with the show (as you might have read) for being, well, naked.

Whatever you’d like to call this girl, ‘genius’ is not in the running. It does however offer the perfect teaching moment.

When it comes to dating, use your brains. For Jessie to act traumatized because Grandma saw her bunghole offends my common sense. She had no problem with an entire production crew seeing her naked while filming and an entire postproduction crew seeing her naked after filming.

Plus, she was AOK with her date not only seeing her naked, but also feeling her boobages and wrestling naked in the sand, pixilation or lack thereof.

Now, Jessie claims she was encouraged to wrestle WWE style. As Grandma probably taught Jessie growing up, that doesn’t mean she had to it. For just about every date a woman goes on, she’s encouraged by her date to get naked. Does that mean she should get strippin’? Of course not.

In the clothed dating world that most of us live in, dating will never be a casualty free business, but most tragedies will be avoided if you don’t leave your common sense at home.

Here are some basics…

• Don’t meet a first date at their house: always at a public place.

• If you’re going to meet someone online, do it through a reputable dating site that takes credit card information even if the site has a free trial or is free. That way, the user knows if the shit hits the fan, they’re traceable.

• If she says she’s on the pill, congratulations, still wear a condom.

• If he swears that little sore on Junior is from his zipper, don’t pass Go and don’t collect your 200 dollars. Just exit stage left. (Herpes is for life, he probably isn’t)

Will following these simple tips and dating smart lead to a life of love and happiness? No. But it will greatly better your chances.

And worse case, you’ll never find your, un-pixilated privates on national television for Grammy and all her yenta friends to see.
