|[2007-05-25] A woman’s beauty lies in her fertility|
|Women prefer to marry women aged 24.8 years on an average; women are thought to reach the peak of fertility at the age. Following his research into the subject, the biologist David Bass at the University of Texas in Austin concluded that men all over the world favored women who were 3.5 years younger on an average. Bass, a convinced Darwinist, believes that the difference stems from prehistoric time. Back then, men would show the best results in hunting at approximately 30 years of age while women’s fertility would begin to decline after 25.

|[2007-05-24] My naked truth on dating|
|IF THERE'S one thing Jane Ganahl knows how to do, it's get naked -- at least in a metaphorical sense.
The former singles columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle regularly bared all for readers regarding the good, bad and ugly of her single life -- and she has kept it up in her new memoir, "Naked on the Page: The Misadventures of My Unmarried Midlife."
While I admired Jane's writing -- and her guts with regard to stripping down to her emotional skivvies -- I'd just as soon eat glass as do the same.
Unfortunately, my editor had different ideas.

|[2007-05-23] Tips to avoid any potentially date-killing performances at the restaurant|
|Best Wines to Order for DinnerGlasses of wine at restaurants can range from five or six dollars, to eleven or twelve dollars or more. On the first date, you may simply look at the prices when ordering and let that dictate your decision, choosing a glass in the lower range.

Instead, order a wine that you think you'll like, but one that is not at the top of the price range. If you are enjoying a steak or a red sauce pasta, try ordering a decently priced Italian Cabernet Franc or a Pinot [...] |
