Until about 10 or 15 years ago, the most popular cosmetic procedure for men was a hair transplant. Today, men are having forehead and eye wrinkles smoothed, back and neck hair removed and excess fat around chins and other areas taken care of.

The times, they are a-changin’. And so should the old rules that make you second guess yourself and your strategies for finding love. Imagine a pool area full of singles all invited to the same party. Some wear a big hat and sunglasses, watching others splash around from afar (not trying). Some have taken off their sandals and stuck their feet in the water (open to dati…

I’m inspired by feedback from readers who have bravely stepped back into the dating scene. I’ve also heard comments from those who’d like to…but are too nervous to face all the insecurities that come along with it. It’s not easy to find a match, but it can certainly be fun to try.

I learn so much about life (and myself) through my experiences with other people. My romantic relationships, especially, have helped shape my opinions, expose me to experiences and give me a chance to gain another perspective. All relationships have value.

It’s no coincidence that some of Buffalo’s best-dressed women also happen to own clothing stores. One might think it’s because a 2,000+ square foot personal closet expands the options, but it’s more the opposite — a keen style sense is what led them to retail in the first place.

Whether we like it or not, money plays a role in dating. You can measure someone’s generosity and predict how they will behave in a potential relationship from the very first meeting. Similarly, when I go on a blind date, my own behavior with money has a way of revealing how the date is going – and my own intentions going forward. To wit: If I know immediately that…

Over the last few years, shoppers have witnessed the rapid transformation of the retail market. Rules on how we shop, where we shop and when we shop have changed dramatically. The emergence of e-commerce and the so-called “Amazon Effect” have disrupted the industry and created an ongoing consumer shift to online shopping. That has created havoc for traditional retailers…
