I did this for you. Or rather for us.
I'm becoming more and more aware of my target audience. And it feels so good and it feels so right to address you all as Queens.
But now I'm turning our attention to the Kings...
I'm a little confounded when men cry out that there's no good women out there, or that all the good women are taken. Rubbish.
They clearly haven't met you or I. [Subtle Giggle...#Facts]
So Fellas, here are some of the very tip-toppy ways to get a good girl on your team, in your life, like real loyal, like the status of a wife....
(Or for some of you...how to try and win her back...)
A. Would You "Woo-Woo-Woo..." #JeffreyOsbourne
Get your "Woo" skills out.
Texting and Facebook stalkery is not going to cut it here.
Show her you want her attention. Be intentional and follow through.
If you don't have her number, ask for it.
If you have her number, call her (try not to email or text this whenever possible) and ask her for a date (Coffee date, lunch date, dinner date, 20 min. frozen yogurt date, drinks, etc., etc.) at least 2-3 days in advance. Last minute shenanigans shows a lack of respect for her and her time.
We as women, love to know what we're in for, especially during the beginning stages of a relationship. And if your being wishy-washy about your Woo-Game, then you might just lose a potential Good Girl...
If you've dated her in the past, take her to one of her favorite spots.
And all in all, the art of wooing a woman has a lot to do with listening to her and looking her in her eyes. Let her express her day, her hopes, her dreams, her disappointments without interruption.
At the end of your time with her, it should be clear to her that you are saying, "You should be mine...all mine."

B. Emotionally Invested
Are you the guy that's been so wounded by women and people that you brood all day and play a guitar all night?
Is your heart even open for love?
When you as a man, choose to allow your heart to feel and not only feel, but get emotionally connected to a good girl--your life will never be the same. #Trust
She will fill the reservoirs of your heart with joy, encouragement, and hope for your future. She'll make sure you're on the road to reaching your dreams as well as her own.
When you show an active interest in at least one or two things that your particular Good Girl likes to do, or her work/career grind, she will be one of your biggest cheerleaders in life.
Furthermore, when you choose to not only invest in her personal endeavors, but to invest emotionally -- sharing your own stories, those stories that have shaped your life, whether trauma or triumph, you're letting your lady know that she's the one you're choosing to share your heart with and you want her to be a significant part of your life.

C. Compliment Her
So yeah. That's pretty straightforward....

D. Tell it to the World
Sure, you can make it "Facebook Official", but more importantly, your family and close friends should know when you are really startin' to "feel" a particular Good Girl.
And yes, there might be haters out there. And haters gon' hate.
But when your Good Girl sees that you aren't ashamed to tell the world about your love and adoration for her, I can guarantee she's gonna want to stick around for the long run. #TeamLoyal
You've noticed she's sultry and cute on Instagram and looks intriguing--even on Facebook, but how do you know she's not crazy? Better yet, how do you know if she's a ride or die, legit "Good Girl?"
How to Spot a Good Girl:
+An online presence just isn't' going to cut it. You'll need real life experience for this.
+You think you've spotted a Good Girl online...Well... as quick as you can, get from the virtual world to the real world. Be brave. Shoot her a message via email, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. BUT be a Gentle-man about yours. And if you two have mutual friends, even better (actually PREFERRED). But start a gentle dialogue online for at least a few weeks. Ask her how her day was, what's she's looking forward to, etc. After a few weeks, if it's wise, safe, and advantageous (for BOTH involved), and she hasn't put the pause or halt on your communication, ask her for a low-key coffee date. The goal is to get from the virtual world to the real world as soon as possible, to find out the Truth:
+ How does she talk about her friends, people in general -- if she's prone to gossip and see the worst in a given situation. All I have to say to you is: NOPE.
+Look for the girl who is genuinely encouraging the heck out of the other ladies in the room.
+Look in your circle of amazing friendships, often we discount our own circle of friends. But get over that awkwardness and take the leap!
+At a coffee shop, notice how your potential crush talks to the barista or cashier.
People are constantly showing you who they really are, we simply have to pay attention...#Selah
