Ever wondered if that lonesome being behind a book shelf flipping through pages could be single? Yes, we say he or she is single. Why? Look at that person, he or she is alone in a bookstore looking for a book to read, because that is the idea of companionship for that person. On a lonely evening he or she brews a cup of coffee, or if terribly miserable then opens the bottle of whiskey and sits down to enjoy a good book. This is the person who will take you on a romantic ride of books and fantasies, he will call you Emma because Jane Austen has had a major effect on him, or she will call you Holden because Salinger’s mad little boy is you.


This may sound like a cliché, but the fact is that this is very true, especially for men. Men who have had a tired day of work often hit the bar after work hours to down a few drinks. This ritual can be followed with friends, and sometimes for those ideally deserted creatures it could be a single handed fete. So, if you are a lady in need of a man to hold your waist and look into your eyes, then do hit the local bar. There will be a lot of men there drinking, unwinding, drowning their miseries in a glass of beer. Men could find women too, but most often such women are drinking to forget something, to move past someone, so be sensitive, and be nice.

Men want to look like Greek Gods, and women want to be the next supermodel, so go to a gym and there you will find future Greeks Gods and supermodels. In the mean time you too can achieve a good physique and be a part of the hunting party.
