No, that is not me posing

So the Date Night Challenge from 123Underwear.com is officially underway. Ever since my order arrived last week I have been extremely excited to actually wear what I chose. Yes, they sat in the box because I saved them for an actual date to wear them. After all, that is the point of the Date Night Challenge. Plus, I didn't want to let the newness wear off.

Technically the challenge was supposed to start with a coffee date this past Sunday but the date was rescheduled for last night. And it actually turned into drinks which seems more like a nighttime sort of thing anyway. Plus given all the other events of my weekend I didn't mind having an extra day.

I have talked a lot this week about break-ups, which is something that I am no stranger to. Actually, I am pretty sure it's something that most people are no stranger to. After all, I am not the only one that gets dumped right? And sure I have done my share of dumping too. So how do you handle it after the break up? Do you rebound, jump into a new relationship or flee the country?

Well, let me introduce you to guest blogger Gaynor Alder, a writer from Melbourne. She works at a magazine and also has an awesome website called "The Modern Woman's Survival Guide". From her own words "think Bridget Jones meets Sex and the City", which I believe is just plain fanstastic.

Here she gives us all a little insight on how to handle things, mainly when you are faced with the idea of jumping from one relationship to the next.

As a single woman, I don't personally have a guy's perspective on pet peeves about women. So that's why I rely on guys to give me their opinion. Since I write about all my little pet peeves about guys I figured it's only fair that I write about the ladies too. Which is perfect since there is a guy I know who's been asking me to write about something women do (or technically don't do) that really gets under his skin.

This little thing is facial hair, actually it's mainly the mustache. Now, clearly I did not know this was an issue but apparently he's been on several dates where it has been. And sure enough, I have talked to a couple of other guys who said that they have noticed the same thing. Honestly, I didn't really know that guys noticed that kind of thing but apparently they do and apparently they don't find it attractive.

And sure, I know. It seems like a little thing so why can't a guy get past it? Well, let's face it, as women we also have little things that we can't get past either. In fact, when I wrote for examiner.com, I wrote a whole article about why guys wear socks during sex. Everyone has something so I feel this little thing is definitely fair and valid. And I mean come on, this is a pretty easy and cheap thing to fix.

So ladies, lose the stache. Here are some products that can help you do it.
