Is this sexting?
Is it still considered sexting if I text a photo of someone else’s boobs to someone? i.e. I just texted a photo of the three-boobed woman from Total Recall to someone.
Forget Networking. How to Be a Connector. →
There is no way I could have ever been a matchmaker if I did not self-identify as a “connector.” Funny enough, I read Gladwell’s The Tipping Point just after I had established my company and thought.. BINGO! That’s me! (Gladwell coined the term “connector,” among other personality identifiers.) If you have not read The Tipping Point, you totally should. Read...
2012 iDate Conference Recap
If there is one piece of knowledge I left with from this past week, it was this: Miami has a lot of prostitutes. Every man I met during the conference had a great story to share about their encounter with a hot young woman that turned out to be a prostitute during one of the event networking mixers or after parties. The consensus seemed to prove that the general rate of a “good time”...
My last name is spelled A-V-G-I-T-I-D-I-S.
Having a Greek last name is difficult as heck in America. No one can pronounce it, I’m constantly spelling it out (G as in George, T as in Tom…) and it can seriously confuse everyone around you. The hotel I was to stay at in Miami overbooked and therefore attendees were transferred to an even better hotel at the same rate. Nice! During the transfer, my last name was misspelled....

Shit NY Single Women Say
The meme that knows no end, Shit Girls Say has given us excellent parodies the last couple weeks like this, this, and especially this. Since I don’t have a camera handy (and I’m particularly lazy), IF I were to create a “Shit NY Single Women Say,” these are the phrases I’d make sure to feature. I hear them regularly. I’m not ready to get into a serious...
Today's Greek Lesson.
The Internet is asking me to protest SOPA and PIPA. Sopa and Pipa are Greek words. Sopa means, “You don’t say!” or “Silence!” Pipa means blowjob. *The more you know.
Next months DwS is going to be fun as heck!
As many of you know, I host this really awesome dinner party every first week of the month, cleverly named Dinner with Strangers. It’s fun, it’s light, and there’s plenty of awesome food and great company to go around. The next installment of Dinner with Strangers will take place at Sofia’s Restaurant, which will feature Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks, an eleven-piece...
Just went through a Google wormhole. Like a Wikipedia wormhole, where you look up one thing and end up 2 hours deep into some article about transverse waves, a Google wormhole is sort of the same but worse, in the sense that curiosity has a probability of leaving a weird taste in your mouth. Right. My Google wormhole caused me to cancel all Friday night plans. No real legitmate reason at all. I...
iDate Conference 2012 - Miami baby!
Okay, kiddos. Who’s going? I arrive on the 22nd and depart on the 26th. I’ll be speaking at the iDate Conference on Niche Matchmaking Business Strategies: The Greek Market. Kinda really psyched to be speaking this year because holy-moly-have-you-checked-out-who-else-is-speaking-this-year? Seriously honored to be in the company of such creative and ambitious individuals. Let’s not...

My New Year's Resolutions
The Expected Resolution: Lose those 20 pounds I put on in 2011. After weird surgeries, torn ACL nonsense, and geographical immobility/ mass mobility(?), I definitely need to get my work-out on. I’ve enlisted a new trainer, bounced on a new nutrition program, and a downloaded a new work-out mix. 2012 is going to just look sexy. Speaking of sexy… The Sexy Resolution: More kisses,...
