Christina Hendricks offers dating advice in Esquire
Only a portion of The Juice* collective watches Mad Men, but even the nerdiest among us have a crush on Christina Hendricks. That's why we're listening up when she gives dating advice in the May issue of Esquire. Because if Christina says it's so, it should be so.
Some highlights from her Letter to Men:
"We want you to order Scotch. It's the most impressive drink order. It's classic. It's sexy. Such a rich color. The glass, the smell. It's not watered down with fruit juice. It's Scotch. And you ordered it.
Stand up, open a door, offer a jacket. We talk about it with our friends after you do it. We say, "Can you believe he stood up when I approached the table?" It makes us feel important. And it makes you important because we talk about it.
No shorts that go below the knee. The ones almost like capri pants, the ones that hover somewhere between the kneecap and the calf? Enough with those shorts. They are the most embarrassing pants in the world. They should never be worn. No woman likes those.
No man should be on Facebook. It's an invasion of everyone's privacy. I really cannot stand it.
Panties is a wonderful word. When did you stop saying "panties"? It's sexy. It's girlie. It's naughty. Say it more.
There are better words than beautiful. Radiant, for instance. It's an underused word. It's a very special word. "You are radiant." Also, enchanting, smoldering, intoxicating, charming, fetching."
Not too sure about that panties part, and definitely don't agree with the Facebook thing. How else will women check into some guy who's asked them out?
