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

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 ☺.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Aussie Cosmo 4


  I was featured in Cosmopolitan Australia!  Working with the talented Julia Naughton, I analyzed the fridges of 4 couples who don’t live together to see how compatible they are on the dating front.
  
  Here’s couple 4 of 4…


Batting clean up is Rachael and Joel.

Crosby, Stills and Nash taught us to “Teach our children well”.  Joel is probably doing just that.  Like our above couples, it’s always fun to see what kind of clues we can pick up from the front of one’s fridge.  The fact that he’s got a Teachers Health Fund calendar on his fridge helps connect the dots.

Can we also guess he’s in real estate?  Sure.  But what’s interesting is there are two different real estate company calendars on there, both from 2014, so I have to assume he can’t work at both.

Now, I can’t say that Rachael works with kids, but she might be a kid at heart.   She has that cute little chameleon and climbing dude on her fridge, which is very sweet.  And with that much milk, she has to come to the harsh realization that she’s no longer 6.

Now, lets put on our detective hats and see what else we can uncover…

Clue

They each have more than 1 beer brand.

Conclusion

They’re both handy hosts.

With more than 1 beer brand, they’re catering to more than one taste.  This is a quality I like to see.

It’s also a good sign that they’re both social, and thus compatible on that front.  Plus, Rachael has a watermelon.  If you’re buying uncut watermelon, the odds are it’s to host peeps at your pad or bring it to a buddy’s for a BBQ.

Clue

They both stock plenty of fruits and veggies

Conclusion

They both have bonable bods.

Nothing says more about our health than our food and drink.  Any trainer will tell you that if you’re eating like shit, all the exercise in the world can only do so much.

In addition to the fruits and veggies, they both stock yogurt and a serious stash of salad dressing.

If someone is not taking of their looks when they’re single, they’ll most likely look even worse when they’re married.  By no means would I say life is easy when you’re single.  But it sure ain’t easier when you’re married with a mortgage and 2 kids.  The window we have to make it to the gym gets tighter and tighter.

Now, I’m not talking about being a size 2 or a size 12.  I’m talking about being healthy.

As for Joel, he’s probably working out as he has Powerade and with only 1 bottle of water, it can’t be his primary water source at home, so I have to assume the bottle is for on the go.

And the promising sign about Rachael’s produce drawer?  There’s a shitload of produce in it.

It’s good to see all you Ausies eating well.  Americans are so fat, half our population can be seen from the Space Station.

Clue

They both have a half-gallon of milk.

Conclusion

They’re both AOK in the strong bones department.  And both big on breakie.

As I see plenty of overlapping foods, with enough to share, it tells me they’re making a place for each other in their lives.

And I’d assume they spend more weekend time at Rachael’s house.  The last time I saw so many eggs, I was watching Chicken Run, and with no other baking ingredients, I have to assume they’re for breakfast.  To fill out the perfect breakie meal, she has bacon, almond milk and fruit.

Clue

They both have relatively inexpensive fridges.

Conclusion

Timing is on their side.

By the looks of their fridges and the brands they buy, they look compatible financially.  Neither one of them are getting laid based off their fridge model (we’re not talking a Sub Zero or Viking here), but they’re a step up from starter models.

Plus, they both spend more for foreign beers, and even though Corona is considered piss in Mexico, they’ve done a brilliant job marketing themselves as a premiere brand around the world.

As I touch on above, timing is so important when it comes to dating.  If they’re in a similar place in their careers and lives, the timing is more conducive for a long-term relationship.

Both also look like they’re renting.  (Or they have to consider firing their interior decorators ;)  This is not a crack on them, or their fridges, these are just not the kind of fridges you’d normally see in owner-occupied homes.

Clue

Both of their fridge pix are fuzzy.

Conclusion

They’re either both are in desperate need of LASIC or will never make a living as a photographer.

Final Formula

I think we can sum up Joel and Rachael with the below dating formula…

J + R < $$$ + > bonable bods + > Pig Pen = 1 CC

Translation…

Joel and Rachael don’t have a ton of money but look solid financially
Both have bonable bods
Both are not neat freaks but are cleaner than Pig Pen
Which makes them 1 Compatible Couple

They both have bonable bods.

Nothing says more about our health than our food and drink.  Any trainer will tell you that if you’re eating like shit, all the exercise in the world can only do so much.

In addition to the fruits and veggies, they both stock yogurt and a serious stash of salad dressing.

If someone is not taking of their looks when they’re single, they’ll most likely look even worse when they’re married.  By no means would I say life is easy when you’re single.  But it sure ain’t easier when you’re married with a mortgage and 2 kids.  The window we have to make it to the gym gets tighter and tighter.

Now, I’m not talking about being a size 2 or a size 12.  I’m talking about being healthy.

As for Joel, he’s probably working out as he has Powerade and with only 1 bottle of water, it can’t be his primary water source at home, so I have to assume the bottle is for on the go.

And the promising sign about Rachael’s produce drawer?  There’s a shitload of produce in it.

It’s good to see all you Ausies eating well.  Americans are so fat, half our population can be seen from the Space Station.

Clue

They both have a half-gallon of milk.

Conclusion

They’re both AOK in the strong bones department.  And both big on breakie.

As I see plenty of overlapping foods, with enough to share, it tells me they’re making a place for each other in their lives.

And I’d assume they spend more weekend time at Rachael’s house.  The last time I saw so many eggs, I was watching Chicken Run, and with no other baking ingredients, I have to assume they’re for breakfast.  To fill out the perfect breakie meal, she has bacon, almond milk and fruit.

Clue

They both have relatively inexpensive fridges.

Conclusion

Timing is on their side.

By the looks of their fridges and the brands they buy, they look compatible financially.  Neither one of them are getting laid based off their fridge model (we’re not talking a Sub Zero or Viking here), but they’re a step up from starter models.

Plus, they both spend more for foreign beers, and even though Corona is considered piss in Mexico, they’ve done a brilliant job marketing themselves as a premiere brand around the world.

As I touch on above, timing is so important when it comes to dating.  If they’re in a similar place in their careers and lives, the timing is more conducive for a long-term relationship.

Both also look like they’re renting.  (Or they have to consider firing their interior decorators ;)  This is not a crack on them, or their fridges, these are just not the kind of fridges you’d normally see in owner-occupied homes.

Clue

Both of their fridge pix are fuzzy.

Conclusion

They’re either both are in desperate need of LASIC or will never make a living as a photographer.

Final Formula

I think we can sum up Joel and Rachael with the below dating formula…

J + R < $$$ + > bonable bods + > Pig Pen = 1 CC

Translation…

Joel and Rachael don’t have a ton of money but look solid financially
Both have bonable bods
Both are not neat freaks but are cleaner than Pig Pen
Which makes them 1 Compatible Couple

Aussie Cosmo 4

I was featured in Cosmopolitan Australia! Working with the talented Julia Naughton, I analyzed the fridges of 4 couples who don’t live together to see how compatible they are on the dating front.

Here’s couple 4 of 4…


Batting clean up is Rachael and Joel.

Crosby, Stills and Nash taught us to “Teach our children well”. Joel is probably doing just that. Like our above couples, it’s always fun to see what kind of clues we can pick up from the front of one’s fridge. The fact that he’s got a Teachers Health Fund calendar on his fridge helps connect the dots.

Can we also guess he’s in real estate? Sure. But what’s interesting is there are two different real estate company calendars on there, both from 2014, so I have to assume he can’t work at both.

Now, I can’t say that Rachael works with kids, but she might be a kid at heart. She has that cute little chameleon and climbing dude on her fridge, which is very sweet. And with that much milk, she has to come to the harsh realization that she’s no longer 6.

Now, lets put on our detective hats and see what else we can uncover…

Clue

They each have more than 1 beer brand.

Conclusion

They’re both handy hosts.

With more than 1 beer brand, they’re catering to more than one taste. This is a quality I like to see.

It’s also a good sign that they’re both social, and thus compatible on that front. Plus, Rachael has a watermelon. If you’re buying uncut watermelon, the odds are it’s to host peeps at your pad or bring it to a buddy’s for a BBQ.

Clue

They both stock plenty of fruits and veggies

Conclusion

They both have bonable bods.

Dating Advice for Beyond the Fridge

Listen.

In the 40 Year Old Virgin, when Seth Rogen dished out dating advice to Steve Carell, he said “just ask questions”.

The man was onto something.

Of course, when they ask you a question back, it’d be a good idea to answer it. You want a dialogue. But the more you’re focused on listening and the less about what you’re going to say, the better your rap will be.

When on a date, the key is to get to know your date. In the long run, it’s a good way to find your next partner, and in the short term, it’s a good way to find your next fling. We’re here to find the one. But there’s nothing wrong with some fun visits to Saucy Town before ‘one’ comes along.

Being a good listener will surely help your chances. Lets face it: we love talking about ourselves. It’s part of human nature. Asking your date questions lets them talk about themselves while allowing you to learn what you want.

It’s like a fun game of Truth or Dare. (Minus the dare part) What do you care about in a person? Ask them that. Yeah, “how was your day” gets the ball rolling, but dive into what matters to you. Listen to what they have to say. Again, the more you focus on them and less on what to say next, the better the conversation.

Think of it as your personal improv exercise that gets you out of your head. As I’ve touched on, dating can be like sales. And like sales, one of the keys to dating is listening. In sales, the more you let them speak, the more they’ll tell you how to close the deal. Same with dating ☺.

Plus, the more you listen, the more you’ll know if you actually like this person and want to upgrade them to a BF or GF. Either way, there’s a direct ratio between the amount you’re listening, and the amount you’re fancied.

I’m not saying you should listen just to close and today’s tip is not about helping you get laid (though it will surely help). I want to see you look at dating as an opportunity to find your one. Not audition for the many. (More on that here: http://tmblr.co/Zc4T9s1O3hWoc)

I’ve never once heard a friend say, “I wanted to bang this guy cause all he did was talk about himself”.

Grandma told us we had 2 ears and 1 mouth for a reason. She had a point.

Aussie Cosmo 3


  I was featured in Cosmopolitan Australia!  Working with the talented Julia Naughton, I analyzed the fridges of 4 couples who don&#8217;t live together to see how compatible they are on the dating front.
  
  Here’s couple 3 of 4…


Our 3rd Couple is Sammi and David.

It’s not a coincidence that Sammi (top) and David’s (bottom) fridges are more grown up and so are they, along with their relationship.   They’ve been dating for almost nine years, are in their upper 20’s and are now engaged.

It is interesting though that after 9 years, they still don’t live together.  Not sure if it’s for geo or personal reasons, but whether for the better or worse, their relationship will change once they start living together.

Now, lets dive into their fridge frontier…

An Orgy of Order

Talk about compatibility, both their fridges are neat, organized and relatively spotless.  (No, David’s is not perfect, but for a straight guy, it’s pretty darn good)  This is a good sign that they’re on top of things in their lives and have their shit together.

Ready to Settle Down

David and Sammi have more upscale fridge models than the other couples and are obviously farther along in their career.

I also like that they both have well stocked fridges, yet still have room in their fridges for someone else.

Sammi comes across as more of a career woman than the other ladies.  She works, yet can still prepare a meal, enjoy a bottle of wine and chill.  Not for budgetary reasons, but as part of her lifestyle.

Yuppies in training

I hope that Dave is moving into her place.  On top of a sexy fridge, great stove and lovely floor tile (holy crap, I sound like my wife), she looks like a homeowner, rather than a renter.   Plus, she has a washer and dryer, which you don’t often see in rentals.

David too is pretty domesticated, as not a lot of dudes have Tupperware.  And compared to the other male fridges, David’s is the most expensive.  Again, it’s not a crack on the other guys, it’s just a sign that David is making more moola.

Sammi and David are also buying name Brands over generic.  Generics have gotten better over the years, but if you can’t afford the extra 86 cents for Heinz Ketchup, move back in with your parents.

When I see all generics in a fridge, it’s most likely they’re pinching pennies in other areas of their lives as well.  No one should waste money, but what’s in our fridge will be in our body.  Some things are not worth scrimping on.

Now, I’m not sure if Sammi’s a teacher, or was at least inspired by hers, but the Teacher magnet on her fridge is some kind of clue.  It’s fun and fascinating how what we put front and center (i.e., on our fridge) provides insight about us…Sammi has a cute Bat Man thingy, Zoe a daily reminder of Martin Luther King.

One Saucy Set

Like the other couples, odds are their birthday suits are a good look for them.

They both have plenty of healthy items in their fridges, including Low Fat Cottage Cheese, Apples, Turkey and Chicken Breast, Salad Veggies, Hommus and Low Fat Yoghurt.

David even has Protein bars to build muscle post workouts.  I can’t say he’s got a 6-Pack like Brad Pitt in Thelma and Louise, but I assume his abs are an asset.

He’s also got Mother Revive energy drink for fuel while on the go.   What’s interesting about the brands we buy is they offer clues about who we are.  Every brand has a target demo and a media plan.  So when we see certain brands in a fridge, we get clues from sex to age range, the pubs we read to the shows we watch.

Again, nothing is universal, but throw enough clues together and they start adding up.   Mother Revive’s target demo is male Millennials, which David is a part of.  (I just hope Revive is not adding vardenafil like MosKa)

Love of Sport

Sammi’s clearly a sports fan, a great fit with Dave, who’s obviously an athlete.  The Parramatta Eels are an Australian professional rugby league football club based in the Sydney suburb of Parramatta.

(It’s fun to point out that this shows Sammi’s from Australia and a clue where she might live or is from.  Not sure where Dave lives, but it’s always nice to be geographically desirable ☺)

Boozie Buddies?

I love that Sammi has champagne.  It’s a drink that’s all about spontaneous celebration and romance.   The fact that she also has wine, beer and Chambord in her fridge tell me she’s a keeper.

As I touch on with Gordon, it’s not a deal breaker if David doesn’t drink, but it is a chink in some otherwise stellar armor.  I mean, who the hell wants to drink alone?

I don’t see a sign of any booze in his fridge, but I hope he keeps it elsewhere, or just does his drinking at her pad.   As the man is an active athlete, he could use some beer in this icebox.  He and Sammi need something to drink while watching the Eels.

Sammi and David are also buying name Brands over generic. Generics have gotten better over the years, but if you can’t afford the extra 86 cents for Heinz Ketchup, move back in with your parents.

When I see all generics in a fridge, it’s most likely they’re pinching pennies in other areas of their lives as well. No one should waste money, but what’s in our fridge will be in our body. Some things are not worth scrimping on.

Now, I’m not sure if Sammi’s a teacher, or was at least inspired by hers, but the Teacher magnet on her fridge is some kind of clue. It’s fun and fascinating how what we put front and center (i.e., on our fridge) provides insight about us…Sammi has a cute Bat Man thingy, Zoe a daily reminder of Martin Luther King.

One Saucy Set

Like the other couples, odds are their birthday suits are a good look for them.

They both have plenty of healthy items in their fridges, including Low Fat Cottage Cheese, Apples, Turkey and Chicken Breast, Salad Veggies, Hommus and Low Fat Yoghurt.

David even has Protein bars to build muscle post workouts. I can’t say he’s got a 6-Pack like Brad Pitt in Thelma and Louise, but I assume his abs are an asset.

He’s also got Mother Revive energy drink for fuel while on the go. What’s interesting about the brands we buy is they offer clues about who we are. Every brand has a target demo and a media plan. So when we see certain brands in a fridge, we get clues from sex to age range, the pubs we read to the shows we watch.

Again, nothing is universal, but throw enough clues together and they start adding up. Mother Revive’s target demo is male Millennials, which David is a part of. (I just hope Revive is not adding vardenafil like MosKa)

Love of Sport

Sammi’s clearly a sports fan, a great fit with Dave, who’s obviously an athlete. The Parramatta Eels are an Australian professional rugby league football club based in the Sydney suburb of Parramatta.

(It’s fun to point out that this shows Sammi’s from Australia and a clue where she might live or is from. Not sure where Dave lives, but it’s always nice to be geographically desirable ☺)

Boozie Buddies?

I love that Sammi has champagne. It’s a drink that’s all about spontaneous celebration and romance. The fact that she also has wine, beer and Chambord in her fridge tell me she’s a keeper.

As I touch on with Gordon, it’s not a deal breaker if David doesn’t drink, but it is a chink in some otherwise stellar armor. I mean, who the hell wants to drink alone?

I don’t see a sign of any booze in his fridge, but I hope he keeps it elsewhere, or just does his drinking at her pad. As the man is an active athlete, he could use some beer in this icebox. He and Sammi need something to drink while watching the Eels.

Dating Advice for Beyond the Fridge

Never audition for your date.

Dating is not about auditioning for your date. It’s about getting to know them better to see if you’d like to go out with them again. And the best way to do so is by listening. (Which we’ll focus on next week)

If you ‘audition’ for your date, then you make it about about seeking your date’s approval, like they’re better than you and your love life is up to them. And that’s bogus.

Remember, no one is better than you. They might not want you. But that doesn’t mean they’re better than you. (It also doesn’t mean it’s their loss cause A, you probably weren’t a fit and B, I’m not your fairy godmother pissing pixie dust)

The other downside of the audition mindset is that you’re more nervous because lets face it: you have no idea of what they’re looking for. And that’s what causes nervousness…not knowing how to act.

That’s why the key to dating is to be yourself. As you have no idea what they’re looking for, if you’re just you, there’s less to be nervous about, as you have no control over whether they like you or not. And that’s a good thing.

It’s why I envy frogs. They don’t have to bring ‘game’ and they don’t have play the game. All they have to do is hang in their swamp and belch out ‘ribbit’.

If a fellow frog likes them, they do the hippity-hoppity. If they don’t, frog doesn’t rack his brain. He doesn’t ask if his homies if his rap sounds good or his looks kill. Like the Honey Badger, frog don’t give a shit. He just keeps on ribbiting in his own way til the right match comes along. And that leads to some carefree, happy frogs.

Now, I always believe in putting your best foot forward. But that’s for you. Not for your date. The better you look and feel, the better you come across by improving your confidence in the process.

When it comes to being on a date, spouting off your attributes like a resume is a bad move. The more you try to impress, the less impressive you’ll be. Trust me, when you have stuff going on, they’ll figure it out. If they can’t, and they’re not willing to put the effort in to getting to know you, they can piss off.

When we see dating as a fun opportunity to get to know someone better and less about validating ourselves (and giving all our power away in the process), the more we enjoy dating in general. Which leads to more dates. And ups the odds of finding our frog ☺.
