Professional American means, she has a job and career aspirations and her salary is more than yours.

If you dont like any of her habits, then Tough! "Whats wrong with you dude, its the cool American thing"

On your first date and and probably thereafter, you woudl have to listen to how important she is in her Organisation and what excellent career prospects she has... and how difficult it is for an average Man to keep up with her...

Etc... etc... etc...

(Just kidding)
Derv, you've either met that woman, or you should get a job script-writing!

does this also mean she'll pay on the first date - or would she hate the scrounging men that are after her only for her money?

Derv is simply a damn good observer. He really is good.
He really needs to meet some girls/women who don't follow those traditional ever so boring downtrodden paths, over and over and over again.

My wish for you Dervy, for 2010, some wonderfully new, nice, refreshing surprises !!!

I have certainly not met her, otherwise she wont be posting here

If she wants to meet you again, then she would share her part of the bill, otherwise she will make you pay for everything for wasting her precious time, which could have been spend more constructively... i.e. moaning to her friends on Facebook how difficult it is to find a date in the new city OR Skyping with her Cyberlover

Its all about paying attention, Dear Lady

But I prefer those who follow traditional, ever so boring downtrodden paths.. because they seem tough but are actually easy to please. They tend to be quite narrowminded when it comes to having fun... and once they experience getting groovy with the Dervvy... they get addicted (NOT)

For 2010, my only refreshing surprise would be meeting Sada

Kunsthaus on Wednesday afternoons has free entry and is full of serious art students. Dress well and snarl at anything she's looking at. "Derivative, adolescent nonsense. Who pays for this rubbish?" will start a conversation.

Or go out for dinner on a Thursday evening; restaurants are full of single women going out with their single friends. OR: arrange a drinks night for the EF and don't mention you're lonely. It may be true, but it rarely works.

And dress well.

That's excellent advice and works everytime. Only variation for me is to pretend to be an art critic (if you sense the lady is really into art..)

Just say things like "Yes...One can see the beauty of the painter's soul in his/her paintings" or: "A joyful use of colour. The poetry on the canvas is unique" or"mmmm mmm yes mmm yes NOW here is an artist who looks at life with hope and optimism, the strength and beauty is wonderful, makes one sad, so sad, that all life is destined to decay...mmmm" repeat ad nauseum until desired effect is achieved.

Serioushly?

Nah, I'd snarl and comment: "It's a load of toss. Wanna get something to eat, neck a bottle of wine and head back to your shared appartment for deep and hard loving, fatty?" really gets their back up. They don't know to be offended or offended.

Could be a bit tricky for a beginner. Start at any Starbucks and work your way up from there.

Unfortunately for yours truly, that guy is in Iceland. A little long way for one shag.
But I did admire his honesty and simplicity, so I threw a 'like' on his status...

I don't think I've ever met a dude who doesn't "need to get laid".

I guess all guys are perfect.

I'm not sure I buy the whole I liked 'his honesty and simplicity', I've seen plenty a bloke try that approach at a bar/night club to return with a hand imprinted across his cheek.

You Begga might be special however...what clubs do you frequent again?

Don't look for A girl just now. That's just silly and will make you look very boring indeed.
The very best advice I can give you is, be free and available, be everyone's and nobody's.
And when you've truly had it all settle down with a cute sweet lovely darling (they all end up fetching someone like that at the end) and have a nice lovely quiet life somewhere far away from it all.

There.
