“Is it true? Can it be? How could she be DATING someone when she’s been so friendly with me on chat! NO! That BITCH! How could she!” Guys (more males than females in my estimation) get “friendly” wrong so often. Some (insert A LOT) of us females like the attention we get online and will waste ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF TIME emailing with you, sending you photos of ourselves, chatting with you about what kind of coffee we prefer. You don’t like coffee, but you play along. What are the chances you are REALLY going to meet this chick? I mean c’mon! For those of you who think that flirting on Facebook is no different than online dating, you’re wrong. Facebook flirting is worse than online dating because people on Facebook aren’t on a dating site. They are on a social networking site SOCIALIZING. For the ladies out there… [Read more]

Understanding the game of love and happiness can be a complicated one for men and women who weren’t blessed with a tremendous amount of confidence. Luckily for them we have people who have figured it out that are willing to share their secrets with those who are humble enough to ask their help. One such individual is a man by the name of Mr. Locario who was kind enough to give an interview to The Hall of The Black Dragon on dating advice and what he has to offer. Hey Mr. Locario, thank you for taking the time to enter the Halls and allow us to pull your coat on women, the game, and how you can help guys get better at figuring it out. The first thing I wanted to ask you is on getting advice. There are many web spaces out there where you have guys calling themselves Pick… [Read more]

washing hands with soap

I hate shaking hands, I really do, hell I wish we would just bow like the Japanese or even kiss the air by each other cheeks… like cute Latinas do. I admit it, I am one of those freaks who would rather not shake hands with you… but the socially awkward penguin within me does not make me strong enough to just refuse. Want to know why? Consider this scenario: I am networking heavily at a conference of peers when the panel breaks for lunch within the next room. The lunch for the day comprises mostly of finger foods and I am starving and anxious to eat. The line for the food is extremely long however and my partners have to depart… so naturally we shake hands and the only thought within my mind is the dirty, icky feeling that comes with hand to hand… [Read more]

As students we are given homework, tasks meant to be studied on our own time in order to memorize, master and absorb lessons that may have been missed in the classroom. Good students who make the grade will do as they are told; homework gets done before play and they ace the tests at the end of the semester. As we mature into adults and take on our respective careers, it becomes easy to lose ourselves and absorb the drama of the workplace to where we become our work. Never Make Business Personal One of the best lessons that an employee can teach themselves is how to adopt the gangster mentality of separating work from home. While an overworked clerk may take work home with her, she will not take work home with her. Do you get what I’m saying here? Let me explain. There… [Read more]

Nothing strokes a culture of mediocrity like Social Networking, I mean it is absolutely scary the way it works. Being a part of a Social Network is like being in a population of people forced to share one giant apartment complex on an island. See within that analogy you will have some people that want to know and get along with everyone (because this makes them “popular”), some who want to become famous and others who hide out in their rooms listening silently to the chatter going on outside. On Facebook – the king of all Social Networks I have found that the only people that cherish the space are those who can play the game, or those who are somewhat delusional about their importance. Playing the game If you were to take the time to examine your massive friends list of ex-classmates, ex-lovers, people… [Read more]

People have started to call Facebook “fake book” because of the number of so-called friends they have on there that are showcasing a false reality. While this is true in many cases, I have to ask: Who are we to police these people? And why is it that we care so much that they choose to be fakers? While I find it pathetic that someone would lie about what college they went to or their relationship status or places that they’ve traveled to, I still am not affected by it so it really means nothing to me. But what is the point of it all? I know for business owners like myself I am forced to have a profile in order to keep pages up, but for Average Joe what is the point of Facebook? I know for networking it is priceless and with the… [Read more]
