Could you pull this off?

Eunice and Lloyd Ford should be knighted. In addition to recently celebrating 83 years together as a couple, the two also claim that they’ve never fought. Is that even possible? Could you do it? I couldn’t, but then, I’m immature enough that I still enjoy the making up part of arguments. Sue me. more…

Expert advice from one in the know

I must have been 27 when I met *Ben while vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard. He was British, intelligent and very droll (God, I love that word). We spent a good three hours talking and drinking at the Sand Bar before going our separate ways. He noticed me not because I was wearing a tiny, island-friendly bikini — I was fully clothed, thank you very much — but because I seemed like the the life of the party. I chatted non-stop, refused to stop smiling and chatted up everyone that crossed my path. more…

French men tell us what they want — so why can’t their American counterparts do the same?

I have to confess that of all the men I’ve met around the world, Americans annoy me the most. They play games, they don’t know what they want, they attempt to sleep with you and walk away without giving even half a shit. I have spent most of my adult life seeking a Brit, or an Aussie or a Kiwi. I like honesty and straightforwardness and simplicity (though not of the mind, mind). Yes, I’m generalizing, and yes, I have found exceptions, but as a rule, I prefer foreigners. Angry Single Blogger Amanda Chatel, who has been living in Paris, very eloquently sums up the problem with American men — and reveals what they can learn from their French brethren. more…

As a former celebrity reporter, I’m all too aware how well celebrity sells. Kristen Stewart is wearing a Lucky Brand jacket? Damn! You just have to have it, don’t you? Bethenny Frankel tells you that her margarita mix not only tastes good but keeps the fat at bay, and you are so there. Thus, it is my prediction that the new celebrity-based travel site Trippy.com is going to be highly successful. Not only are you getting tips from the stars, but you actually have the opportunity to travel like they do. Is there anything more alluring? And on that note, please refer to the above photo. That, my friends, is my celebrity crush, Taylor Kitsch, former Friday Night Lights actor and current star of John Carter, which was released today. Taylor, just in case there’s a chance in hell you’re reading, I will go anywhere you say, even if your favorite vacation spot is Gold’s Gym. Fact. more…

He’ll be most likely to have an affair in these seven European cities

I’m sure you’ve all heard the myth that only 1% of all Americans have passports. Maybe we perpetuate this because we feel better about ourselves being in such an elite group of world travelers or because we’re too lazy to Google. But the numbers have changed, people. According to CNN, 30% of us — roughly 308 million Americans — have now joined the international club. I’m not giving y’all too much credit though, as 50% of these passport holders don’t go any further than Mexico or Canada, destinations that didn’t require a passport until 2007. At any rate, that means that only 15% of the entire country travels to Europe. Those rare souls include college students who want to drink underage, cultured elderly folk, single gals on the prowl and businessmen. If your boyfriend/husband happens to fall in the latter category, watch out, particularly if he’s flying to one of these seven countries. Why? These locales have become the de rigueur for clandestine international affairs. more…

Do you have to be a kid to find pleasure at Mickey’s playground?

If you’ve been reading LoveTrekker faithfully (and if you haven’t, shame on you), you should know by now that I have a thing for amusement parks. I am a gigantic infant, albeit one who refuses to sing, ‘Mommy, wow! I’m a big kid now!’ Feeding my inner child some fireworks, a few roller coasters or a little ski-ball every once in a while keeps me young and happy. So I’m going to put it right out there and say it: Disneyland is one of my very favorite date spots in the world. Apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks so. Renee Zellweger and John Stamos recently went on a date there, and they’re even older than I am. If you can’t see me metaphorically sticking my tongue out at you, then I’m going to give you a wet willy. more…

Older man enthusiast and food blogger Carolyn Loyel is convinced that a mature gent is the right way to go in the wacky world of dating. Oh yeah, and it also helps if he’s French!

Hi there ladies. My name is Carolyn, and I’m here to write about the other age-related perspective — dating older men.

Personally, I’ve never dated a guy younger than me. I’m 26, and I usually prowl for older gentlemen in the 35 to 40 year-old range.I wouldn’t rule out dating someone my own age altogether, but it’s not my ‘thing.’ more…
