- As the author of The Single Girl's Guide to Meeting European Men, what advice do you have for women? A key tip – not just to meeting European men but men in general – is to be yourself. I have done a lot of book events with girls in their late teens and twenties. Many of them confided that they feel pressure from society and their friends to look and act a certain way. Most men of substance don't want to date a girl who is blindly mimicking her best friend. He wants to date a girl who is an individual. This tip applies to life in general. It's important for a woman to follow her own dreams, not those of someone else.
- Some people who love the videos find them funny and playful. Plus you look great on camera. But others think the videos put women in a bad light. How do you explain the two extreme reactions? I'm really appreciative of all the great comments people have made about my videos. Criticisms that they create a negative view of women are rare. I think it's sad that some people go through life straining to find a dark side when instead they could enjoy the light. The videos are meant to be fun and many see them that way. Women have emailed me saying they liked them so much that they read my book and found it empowering. Several said it gave them the courage to explore the world. Some even told me that they began international careers because of it.
