Girlfriend Getaways - Flirting 101

A girlfriend getaway is the perfect time to practice the lost art of flirting

Sure you're heading out of town with your gal pals, but that doesn't mean guys are off limits. If you're newly single and trying to find your groove again, who better Flirting 101Flirting 101to give advice than the girls who know you better than anyone else?

Let's hear it for the girls!



  • Be cool, but not too cool. More than any other trait, guys love a girl who smiles. Angelina's pout may be sexy, but he's nervous about approaching you and thinks you're giving him the "Ice Princess" stare.
  • Speak softly. Save the belly laughs (at least for now) for your girlfriends. For some reason guys associate loudness with trying too hard. Dial it down a notch and make him lean into hear what you have to say.
  • Tone down your scent. A guy wants to be surprised by your perfume when he leans into you, not overwhelmed by it from 10 ft away.
  • Use your hands. Let your hands do the talking for you. Run your fingers through your hair, gesture, touch your lips. It's the universal language of love.

If the flirting falls flat, consider taking your next girlfriend getaway in Chicago where you can learn to pole dance. That skill has to come in handy somewhere...

Make sure you convert your cash at the airport so you can buy a cold beer on the bus on your way to the resort. They will take canadian money but not loonies and toonies. "

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
