How to Get Everything You Want In Life
Get What You Want: continued...
7) Sign a sophisticated signature
A scribbled scrawl might say something about you-but is it saying anything
good? Andrea McNichol, author of Handwriting Analysis Putting It To Work For
You says no. Try holding your arm and hand away from your body when signing
your name. This naturally creates a more generously spaced signature, which is
more attractive and memorable.
Other tips: Always end your autograph with a stroke to the right-ending it to
the left means you're living in the past. And skip flourishes like excessive
underlining, swirls, or oversize letters (don't even think about heart-dotted
i's); these things will make you seem attention-hungry, not like the history
maker you know you were born to be.
8) Get more foreplay
He opts for fast and furious; you'd like him to loiter. Sex educator and
REDBOOK Love Network expert Lou Paget offers these tips on how to get your man
to lengthen the passion prelude:
Drive home the message that more foreplay will lead to more sex and your guy
will go along with most anything you request. Say, "If you kiss me the way
you used to for three more minutes, it will really get me hot." He'll dive
in for a make-out session pronto.
Stroke his ego. Think of a move he does well, tell him it drives you crazy,
and ask for more of it-he'll cooperate.
Request, rather than demand; he's more likely to respond if he doesn't feel
criticized. Better yet, show, don't tell: Take his hand and guide it in the way
you like to be touched-the visuals of you getting aroused will be enough to
make him pay attention.
9) A tropical vacation that doesn't cost a fortune
Break out your beach bag. Paradise can come cheap-and you don't even have to
plan months in advance. Bookmark these websites:
site59.com lets you book up to three hours prior to your flight (five hours
for international). By selling off packages that would otherwise go unbooked,
the site can save you up to 70 percent!
11thhour.com is also procrastinator-friendly. You can even hold packages for
24 hours before purchasing, which is handy when you're not quite sure if your
best friend prefers window or aisle.
If your dates are flexible, sign up at travelzoo.com for their “Top 20”
weekly e-mail to learn about new deals as they become available.
