Seductive Solution: There were a few very unseductive mistakes James made in his haste:

• He should have called Stacy from the gym and said, "Hon, I'm running a little late. I've just finished my workout, and I've gotta jump in the shower so I'll be presentable to you." And then he should have showered at the gym, using extra care to get the sweat out of his beard. Says Stacy, "I love beards and think they're very sexy, but, frankly, kissing a sweaty beard is like kissing a dirty wet mop. It's a real turn-off."

• James should have taken a few minutes to brush his teeth, apply deodorant, and even put on a splash of that cologne Stacy likes so well.

• He would also have done well to leave out that onion bagel with the scallion cream cheese, too.

If James was in such a dead rush that he couldn't shower at the gym, he should have held off with the kiss and hug until after he'd showered and brushed his teeth at Stacy's place. Believe me, she would have understood. And she wouldn't have been so turned off.

Take My Breath Away

Situation: Rick and Toni are on their fifth date, and Rick has chosen an elegant new Italian restaurant in a trendy part of town. Toni is delighted with his choice (and is obviously delighted with Rick), and the evening is off to a wonderful beginning. The sexual tension between Rick and Toni is growing, and both wonder what the evening might bring. For now, it seems their main challenge is to get through dinner without disappearing under the table together!

But first things first; the waiter arrives and they order their meals. Rick, a real garlic lover, begins with a garlic-infused vegetable soup, and for his entrée chooses garlic-roasted chicken with penne pasta. He's also a spinach fan, so he has a big side order of sautéed spinach. Throughout the meal he consumes several pieces of garlic bread, while Toni just has a couple of plain rolls. Afterwards, as they're walking toward a coffee bar for an after-dinner cappuccino, Rick stops and draws Toni to him to kiss her. She cuts the kiss short, pulls away, and for the rest of the evening gently rebuffs any other effort he makes to get physically close. After he says good night to her at her door, he's left wondering, "What went wrong?" Later at home, he looks in the mirror and sees the big piece of green stuck between his teeth. When his roommate comes home later on, he comments, "Is someone having a garlic cook-off here?" Now Rick knows what the problem was with Toni.

While garlic adds a delicious flavor to the food wc cat, its effect upon our breath is the stuff of legendi. Be aware that Once garlic is in your system, brushing, breath mints, and mouthwash are of limited effectiveness. The only real cure for garlic breath is the passage of time. So when you're bying to be seductive, ifs best to forego the garlic, unless you're trying to ward off vampires.

Seductive Solution: How could Rick have kept this evening riding on its original momentum?

• Unless he could have persuaded Toni to consume as much garlic as he did, Rick should have been much more moderate in his garlic consumption—or better yet, skipped the garlic altogether. Yes, that's possible even in an Italian restaurant.

• Rick should have excused himself after the meal and ducked into the men's lounge for a brief oralhygiene break. As he now knows, it's important to keep your breath as fresh as possible throughout the date. It would not have been out of line for Rick to sneak a travel toothbrush and some dental floss along on the date. Lacking that, he could have popped a few breath mints. And he should have checked himself out in a mirror after the meal—always a good idea, particularly after you've eaten something green!

Smoke Gets in Her Nose

Situation: Wes is picking Brenda up for their first real date. They've been working together for a few months and have had lunch several times, but this is their first dinner date. Wes is a long-time smoker, but Brenda is an avid nonsmoker, and is allergic {^cigarette smoke to boot. Wes has always been careful not to smoke in

Brenda's presence, because he knows she's a nonsmoker and is allergic as well. Arriving at Brenda's house, he takes a few last puffs from his cigarette before he gets out of his car, and walks up to her door. Brenda greets him at the door with a smile, which quickly fades as she catches a whiff of fresh smoke on him. Even though they normally greet each other with a friendly hug, she politely refuses to hug him this time, and instead begins walking toward his car. Wes is puzzled by her seeming aloofness.

Seductive Solution: How can a smoker and nonsmoker get off to a good start for a potentially seductive evening?

• Wes should know that even if he does not smoke in front of Brenda, the smell of fresh (or stale) smoke will be very apparent to her. It's in his breath, it's in his clothes, and it's in his car. Breath sprays or mints help a little, but they're only as effective as their most recent application. And they don't do anything to remove the smoke smell that lingers in the fabrics of Wes's clothes, or on his hands and fingers. Wes should have avoided smoking altogether before picking up Brenda.

• Before leaving home to pick up Brenda, Wes also should have practiced some good hygiene and brushed his teeth. It also wouldn't have hurt to use his little bottle of breath drops on the way over to her place.

• In addition, he also needs to carefully and thoroughly wash his hands. Tobacco odor on the hands is very noticeable to a nonsmoker, and can be a real turn-off.

Dangerous Digits

Situation: It's the middle of their first night together, and Hank's girlfriend, Rita, wakes up with a start. Her leg has been slashed by the toenails from hell. Hank, who had taken such pains with every other area of hygiene and grooming, had neglected to trim those talons of his.

Seductive Solution: Many women wish their fingernails would grow as rapidly and well as the average man's toenails. The solution to this one is a no-brainer. Hank should clip and file his toenails, and if he doesn't take the initiative, Rita should broach the subject. After all, long toenails are not only hazardous to your partner's tender skin, it's just good hygiene to keep one's toenails trimmed.
