Celebrity Sightings – Sheena Parveen – Philly Weather Girl – Part 2

I think it was back in 2015. I was out one night with my buddy Church. We end up at Ashton Cigar Bar. Ashton is Philadelphia’s premier whiskey, cigar and cocktail bar. Featuring a beautiful, contemporary design and a warm, comfortable atmosphere, It’s located in the heart of Philadelphia’s Center City district. (Actually right across from out salon!)

With a luxurious selection of 200 premium cigars enshrined in a pristine all-glass walk-in humidor, Ashton Cigar Bar has something to please both the cigar connoisseur and novice. Their selection of over 385 whiskeys is renowned as the best whiskey list in Philadelphia. Their epic whiskey collection focuses on Single Malt Scotch, Blended Scotch, Bourbon, Rye Whiskey, Irish Whiskey, North American Whiskey, World Whiskey and White Whiskey, including numerous rare and limited vintages.

In addition to whiskey and cigars, Ashton Cigar Bar is also known as one of Philly’s best cocktail bars. Their specialty cocktail menu showcases famous classic cocktails, along with some signature cocktails of their own. All of their cocktails are carefully crafted and perfectly poured combining fresh local ingredients with the finest spirits. Ashton Cigar Bar is a sanctuary for lovers of fine cigars, craft cocktails, whiskey and other fine spirits.

And a bunch of douchebags.

The waitresses are hot and Church knows the bartender so we’ll probably get a drink hookup. But I don’t go to Ashton. I’m not a cigar guy, but I don’t mind the smell. Whenever I smell a cigar, it always reminds of my Dad when I was a kid. He always enjoyed a good cigar on occasion. So when I enter Aston’s low lit lounge I always think of my father. But that’s still not enough to make me ever go there.

But on this particular night we ended up there. Church bounced at the door for a period of time, but that got a little crazy. He always had to deal with drunken idiots who wanted to come in and he wouldn’t let them because they were visibly intoxicated. So that was a tough job dealing with drunks all night.

The manager rolls by us and stops to say hello and chat.

“Did you see who just walked by?”

“No. Who?”

“Sheena Parveen!”

“Sheena Parveen is here?”

“Yea she just went to the bar down there to get a drink.”

“Church, hold my beer.”

Every dude I know who has watched her do the weather every night on NBC loves Sheena Parveen. She’s hot, with a smokin’ body and a lively personality.

I see her at the bar. Think of a cute baby seal that’s getting hot lying up on the rocks. Envision that sweet baby seal deciding to hop into the sea to cool off.

Now think of a great, dark grey dorsal fin cutting through the water at high-speed, froth foaming behind the fin as it cuts through the water, heading straight for that little baby seal.

That was me striding towards Sheena Parveen. Beloved local TV personality and weather girl.

But what would the average guy say to her? What could he possibly have in common with this lady? I needed to use my lightning fast, think on my feet, sales brain to come up with something to get, and hold her attention so that I could get something from her.

“Hello. Ms. Parveen.”

“Hi.” (seems a little buzzed)

“It’s nice to meet you. I’m Charles.”

“Sheena. Nice to meet you.”

“Sheena I had an idea I wanted to run by you if you have a second.”

“Sure!”

“I work for a local publication. (hand her my card to show that I’m legit) We have our Annual Summer Guide coming out in a month or so.”

“Okay.”

“Well I had this idea. Who does Philly go to for their weather report before they drive to the shore every week?”

“Me!”

“Exactly. I’d like to get you on the cover of our Summer Guide to make sure everybody knows that.”

“That would be amazing. I’d love that!”

(I literally came up with that pitch in the ten seconds it took for me to leave my friends and go chat to Sheena.)

Then the best part comes, when I hit the hyper drive.

I type her name into my phone and pull my classic original move. I hand her my phone. She looks at the phone then up at me. I remain unresponsive.

“My cell?”

I simply cock my eyebrow and tilt my head toward the phone.

“Okay… (starts typing) Please don’t be crazy.”

Hits save and hands the phone back to me.

“Thank you, Sheena. We’ll be in touch.”

“Yea. Sounds great.”

Church approaches. “Hey, look at this great looking couple!” Holds up his phone and snaps some photos.

We were never able to get Sheena on the cover of our publication due to scheduling conflicts, but I got to meet one of my local TV babes in person. I had the will to get her to give me her cell number and got the pictures to prove it.

Although she is a famous media personality, information about her personal life is hardly available online. She was rumored to have had affairs with TV personas like William Green and Hugh Jackson, but all those incidents didn’t seem to last long.

She played volleyball in her school and was on the school team as well. Her interest also included dancing, and she did a bit of stage act as well.

She has appeared in several TV shows and hosts her show as well. She is one of the famous TV hosts at the time.

Having started her career with ABC’s associate MSBC- TV in Florida, she currently works for NBC Washington. She left NBC10 and left Philly for something good.

Sheena left NBC10 and headed to WRC-TV which is also owned by NBC. However, people she worked with did miss her presence in the channel.

The show had to go on and they have found the replacement. Even though, the contributions of Sheena can’t be replaced, only the continuity is contributed by the new one. Sheena had joined NBC10 in 2011, who replaced her?

Dating and Relationship Advice – Surprising Traits Men (and women) Find Attractive

They say that beauty is only skin deep, but there’s no denying that those first impressions are important ones. Ever wonder what men are really noticing, and what they really, honestly find the most attractive? Fortunately, there have been at least a handful of studies that have tried to find out just what men (and women) find attractive in their prospective partners, and it turns out that sometimes, it’s so hardwired into us that we don’t even realize what we’re looking for… until we find it.

Blue eyes (but only sometimes)

In theory, blondes have more fun. And what’s more wholesome than a blue-eyed blonde? Brown-eyed girls shouldn’t despair, though, as a study from the University of Tromso in Norway suggests that when it comes to potential mates, it’s only blue-eyed men that show a preference for blue-eyed women.

The study is pretty fascinating stuff. It asked 443 individuals a series of questions based on the hair and eye color of their current and past partners. They also presented participants with a series of photos in which the models’ eyes had been manipulated to change color, while leaving the rest of their appearance the same. They found that while women and brown-eyed men showed no preference over selecting partners (or being attracted to) any particular eye color, they also found that blue-eyed men overwhelmingly chose (and were attracted to) blue-eyed women.

The study also suggests there’s a very practical reason for this, and it’s all down to genetics. If you think back to some of the earliest things you learned about genetics in junior high, it’s that blue eyes are recessive. The only way a child can have blue eyes is to be born to two blue-eyed parents, or to two people who each carry part of the recessive gene for blue eyes. When two blue-eyed parents have a brown-eyed child, there could be something fishy going on. Blue-eyed people don’t carry the genes for brown eyes (they’d have brown eyes themselves), so the reasoning goes that a blue-eyed man will be more attracted to a blue-eyed woman. The study’s authors say that, conscious or subconscious, blue-eyed men’s preference for blue-eyed women might be linked to one extra layer of paternity protection.

 

An “older” appearance

It can be tough when those first few gray hairs show up, or when you realize that you’re suddenly in the next higher age bracket. But according to a joint study between psychologists from the University of St. Andrews and the University of Liverpool, a more mature appearance is exactly what some men find the most attractive.

Generally, cultures have a set of norms about what they consider attractive — that’s what makes a movie star universally admired, for example. Researchers wanted to find out how our personal experiences helped shape what we as individuals find attractive, so they looked at whether or not the faces we’re exposed to as children impact what we’re attracted to as adults. They found that it absolutely does, at least, when men are looking for a long-term partner.

The study found that men who were born to “older” mothers (those over 30) were more likely to find older women more attractive when they were looking for long-term relationships. While men who were only thinking in the short term didn’t show the same preferences, there was a definite correlation between the age of a man’s parents and his choice in women. While the mechanism that’s at work here isn’t entirely understood, it’s suggested that when looking for a long-term partner, there’s something about the influence of the first committed, long-term relationship we’re in (the parent-child relationship) that helps provide us with feelings of security as adults.

 

Similar characteristics to parents

Other studies suggest that parents’ influence on what characteristics men find attractive goes even beyond age. Another study from the University of St. Andrews looked at a phenomenon known as imprinting, well known to exist in the animal world and, until recently, largely unexplored in humans.

The study looked at how likely men (and women) are to be attracted to certain hair and eye color in their chosen partners, and they found that for men, the best indicator of preferences was the hair and eye color of their mothers. When nearly 700 volunteer participants (including 394 men) were asked about the hair and eye color of themselves, their parents, and their partners, they found that overwhelmingly, men were attracted to the same coloring that their mothers had. The same correlation didn’t appear when comparing their father’s hair and eye color, and while researchers aren’t entirely sure what’s going on here, they did suggest that it’s possible that the early connection between mother and son formed a sort of subconscious bond that suggests safety, familiarity, and comfort linked to the eye and hair color they knew first.

Another study, this one done by the University of Tokyo, found that men showed significant preference for women who shared something else with their mother: height. When they looked at volunteers who reported their own heights, along with their parents’ and their partners’ heights, they found that men were much more likely to be attracted to a woman of similar height to their mother.

 

The right sense of humor

A sense of humor is high on the list of traits that everyone says they look for in potential partners, but according to a study published in Evolution and Human Behavior, the sort of humor men and women find attractive is surprisingly different.

When both men and women were asked about the traits they looked for in a partner, both groups reported a sense of humor was equally important. But when the study looked a little further, they found that while women valued both the ability to be funny and to appreciate the same sort of things they found funny, men were a little more one-sided with what they found attractive. The men surveyed didn’t rate funny women as any more desirable, and instead, it was receptiveness to their own sense of humor that they valued. In other words, men want someone who’s going to laugh at their jokes. For men, it wasn’t as necessary that women be able to make them laugh. They were looking for someone who appreciated their capacity for what the study called their production of humor.

When men’s responses were broken down by the type of relationship they were talking about, the results were even more drastic. When it came to dating and long-term relationships, it was even more important for men to find someone who appreciated their sense of humor, while funny females were better for friendship and short-term relationships.

 

The right head tilt

According to a pair of Australian researchers, one thing that men find surprisingly attractive is a simple one that anyone can do — just tilt your head the right way.

They took a series of faces that were manipulated to appear as they were being viewed from different angles, and volunteers were then asked to rate the attractiveness of those faces, along with how feminine or masculine they were. They found that men were most attracted to faces when women tilted their heads forward enough that they were looking slightly up.

The results were significant and suggested that nothing more than a simple adjustment to the way we carry ourselves could make someone measurably more attractive. They suggested that it has something to do with height, and that when a man sees a woman who tilts her head forward and looks up at him, she’s presenting herself in such a way that accents height differences and, in turn, traditional ideas about masculinity and femininity.

 

Taking hunter-gatherer risks

This one goes both ways, and it turns out that both men and women find certain risk-taking behaviors incredibly attractive in potential mates. Personality traits that include being open to certain risks were rated as highly attractive to women, but surprisingly, men were attracted to women who were a certain kind of adventurous.

According to a study done by the University of Alaska Anchorage, men (and women) were attracted to those with personality traits that allowed them to take part in and enjoy what they called hunter-gatherer risks. That includes activities and dangers similar to what our ancient ancestors would have faced, like skiing, mountain climbing, whitewater rafting, and other outdoor activities. While those are things we usually think of as being attractive when a man does them, the study found that men are also attracted to the same behaviors in women.

Being attracted to risk-taking behaviors only went so far, through, and it was only ancient risks that were found attractive. Taking modern risks were definitely seen as less attractive, and that meant everything from driving without a seat belt to dabbling in drugs.

 

A high-pitched voice

While you might think that a husky voice would be a sexy one, studies have shown that what men are really attracted to is a higher-pitched voice. According to one study done by University College London, high-pitched voices were found to be almost universally more attractive to men, mostly because of the features, figure, and youth they imagined to go along with that voice. Volunteers were asked to listen to a series of voices and then rate them based on their appeal, and researchers found that there was sort of a sweet spot in pitch. Men rated high-pitched voices more attractive, but only to a certain point. When the voice got too high-pitched, the attractiveness declined. By the end of the study, they concluded that in order to be most attractive, a voice should be moderately high-pitched and slightly breathy, all which reportedly signaled that the speaker had a small frame.

Weirdly, they were also able to draw comparisons between their results and results that had been already found in the animal kingdom. There, males and females often have different pitch and tone to their voice, as they’re used for different reasons. That further led the team to the conclusion that men prefer moderately high-pitched voices not only because of the physical qualities they imply, but also because they impart the idea of submissiveness and make confrontation seem unlikely.

If your voice doesn’t fall into the realm of “moderately high-pitched,” there’s no need to fear. According to a study from the Journal of Evolutionary Psychology, women who are talking to a man they’re attracted to tend to speak in a higher pitch without even realizing they’re doing it.

 

Ovulation

The science behind this one is pretty fascinating, and while ovulation might not be a specific trait, it is linked to some traits that men find attractive. According to a study in the journal Hormones and Behavior, men were more likely to rate women as being the most attractive when they were at the most fertile point in their menstrual cycle.

There have been a huge number of studies done on this, and there have been some fascinating discoveries. As women approach peak fertility, voices get higher in pitch, body odor changes and becomes more desirable, and it’s even suspected there might be some sort of incredibly discreet change in skin or lip color — all things men have traditionally found more attractive.

In 2007, a University of New Mexico study found that fertility even seemed to impact the tips made by professional lap dancers, and another study done by researchers from the University of Gottingen in Germany got similar results. Men were asked to watch silhouettes of women dancing and to pick out the more attractive women based only on their movements. Overwhelmingly, they choose the women who were at their most fertile, and they did the same thing when they were asked to choose the most attractive silhouettes of women simply walking. Researchers suspect that hormonal changes that happen in the body at times of peak fertility change some things to appeal even more to men, allowing them to pick up on fertility unconsciously.

 

The perfect WHR

When it comes to overall body shapes, we always hear that it’s the hourglass figure that’s most attractive. That might not be entirely true, though, and according to research done by professors at the University of Texas, it’s only the last part of the traditional trio of measurements that really matters.

Professor Devendra Singh took a look at the differences in how male and female bodies store fat, coupled with indicators of health and fertility. She found that when women have a waist to hip ratio (WHR) of between .67 and .8, they’re thought to be the most attractive to men. She conducted a series of experiments that not only surveyed men as to what shape they found most attractive, but also looked back through the last few decades at everything from Miss America contestants to Playboy models. The overwhelming majority of the men she surveyed agreed that the most attractive shape had to do with that magic WHR number, no matter what their age group was.

Other studies seem to show that no matter what the actual size of a woman is, it’s the ratio that’s more important than the weight or build. From women like Beyonce to Kate Moss, it didn’t matter how much they weighed. It was the ratio that men found most attractive.

 

Personality really does matter

When it comes to figuring out which traits are going to be most attractive to potential partners, it’s easy to focus on the physical. But studies have shown that personality traits like kindness really, truly do make a person more attractive. One study done at the University of Westminster polled 2,157 male students to find out what they found most attractive. The result showed something we’d find surprising, and that’s the fact that there was no body type or shape they found to be more universally attractive than any other. When men were supplied with personality traits, though, those traits made them select a wider range of body types and sizes that they said were attractive, compared to the selections they made on physical appearance alone.

Another study from a group of Chinese universities found similar results. They took both men and women and asked them to rate the attractiveness of a series of faces based only on appearance. Two weeks later, the same group was given personality traits along with the faces, and positive traits made faces more attractive. They even gave it a name: the halo effect.

So what are some of the traits connected with an increase in physical attraction? Honesty, respectfulness, and a positive attitude. Almost all positive personality traits have been shown to have a positive impact on what men think and how attractive they view potential partners, leading some psychologists to suggest as much effort should be put into the personality component of first impressions as the physical one.

Take the time to read through these needs. Let them sink in. Understanding what you can do to help your partner fully open will not only improve your relationship, but it’ll improve your entire life.

Here are the seven things that all women want in a relationship.

 

1. To Feel Loved

When women feel loved, they relax and open to us. The arguments dissipate, the sex is abundant, and their nurturing feminine energy flows throughout our lives.

Not feeling loved is the subtext of every argument that you and your partner have.

If she’s unhappy that you’re going out with your friends, or she’s upset about her day at work, or she is only responding to you with brief snippets of sentences, then the cause is most likely her not feeling loved enough.

Learn to see through her words, actions, and moods and see what the real root of it is.

 

2. To Feel Safe

There’s a war being waged on women’s self-esteem, sexuality, and safety from a very young age.

Because of the barrage of negative messages being sent to women regarding their sexuality, women need to have a safe space where they feel that they can trust their partners.

She wants to trust your strength. She wants to feel like you can handle whatever she shows you.

She wants to feel like you won’t judge her if she asks for something risqué. She wants to know you won’t collapse in defeat if she tells you to do it “This way” instead.

By creating a safe space for your woman to open up to you emotionally and sexually, you will be giving her a very powerful gift. You allow her to grow within your relationship and undo old emotional damage.

 

3. To Feel Seen

Women want to feel seen.

She wants to feel you hearing her, and being aware of her emotional state.

She doesn’t necessarily want you to be affected by her emotional state, but she does want you to be witness to it.

If she is sitting across the room from you and you aren’t picking up on the fact that she’s suffering emotionally and on the verge of tears, she’ll begin to trust you less. She’ll think, “If he can’t see that I am hurting now, how long will it take him to figure it out? Will I be suffering for days or weeks before he’s aware of it or cares enough to help me through this? I guess I have to rely on myself for my own emotional support.”

Life can seem extremely lonely, even within a relationship. You have to constantly show your partner that at least one person will be witness to her and her journey through life. (Hint: that person is you.)

 

4. To Be Allowed To Be Nurturing

Just as masculine energy has the need to protect, feminine energy has the desire to nurture.

Women want to see the cracks in our armour. They want to see that we trust them enough to open up to them. They want to be able to help us through our sadness.

An integrated, evolved man who has a balanced masculine energy as well as his own sliver of feminine would welcome his woman’s nurturing.

If you’re a guy reading this, have you ever held open a door for a woman because it’s the polite thing to do (but more just because she’s a person and it wasn’t even a gender-based act) and she chews your ear off for it? “Oh what? I can’t open the door for myself because I’m a woman?! You sexist pig!”

That is an example of a wounded, unbalanced woman who doesn’t want to accept help from a masculine source. This is exactly how it feels to your partner when you push her away when you feel the most vulnerable. “I don’t need to lay my head down on your chest and tell you about my feelings because I don’t have any!” That’s a lie. It’s a lie that serves your purpose of not letting your partner in. This lack of vulnerability and authenticity is what’s making you and your partner suffer.

So let her in. She wants to love you.

Men mess up their relationships in these three specific ways. You have to see this before it’s too late…

 

5. To Feel Sexually Desired

What’s a major difference between your relationship to your partner and your relationship to everyone else in your life? You have sex with your partner.

Women need to feel sexually desired. They want to make sure that you see and appreciate them as a feminine, sexual being.

Praise her body. Feel her and touch her appreciatively. Remind her that you see her as a sexual being and you will both benefit.

 

6. To Be Appreciated

The feminine in all people responds primarily to praise and appreciation.

Remind your partner that you love her. Tell her that you appreciate what she brings to your life. Show her how much she means to you.

The fastest way to run your relationship into the ground is by ignoring your partner and taking her for granted. Appreciation is the opposite of those things. Appreciation is the embodying this mindset: “I’m aware of what you bring to my life, and I want you to be sure that I’m aware of it as well.”

So tell her what you appreciate, and tell her often.

 

7. To Feel Like She Can Count On You

Life gets pretty messy sometimes.

When life’s unavoidable difficulties arise, do you fall apart under pressure or are you able to bend and not break?

Women want to know that we can handle ourselves when life happens. They want to know that we won’t run and hide when they get a bit ‘too emotional’ for our liking. They want to know that they can count on us.

When you tell your partner you’ll do something, and then you don’t do it, it hurts her. She loses a piece of trust in you that has to be earned back. Even seemingly small things break that trust like you saying that you will wash the dishes shortly after dinner, but washing them the next morning instead.

When enough small transgressions like this are sprinkled throughout your relationship, she’ll distrust you.

Do what you say you’ll do, be who you say you are, and be consistent in your actions.

What Do Women Need In A Relationship?

Women want partners that care.

Women don’t want perfect partners; they want men who are striving to be their best selves.

She doesn’t necessarily want someone who has every step of his life pre-planned, but she wants someone with drive and with goals.

She doesn’t necessarily want someone who cries every day, but she does want someone who has the courage to cry in front of her when he needs to.

She doesn’t necessarily want someone who stays in therapy for his entire life, but she does want someone who has the courage to face his own emotional demons.

So put in the work. End the stalemate. Decide that you want to be in the kind of relationship that most people don’t have and you want to put in the effort necessary to become that kind of man.

The women of the world are waiting for us. And they want us to step up just as badly as we want them to open up.

Cherie – Chapter 12 – Breakfast with Baby

Cherie parked at 17th and Arch. It was 9:30am on Tuesday. She walked down to Rachael’s which as we all know is my favorite breakfast spot. She arrived and we ordered. She had the bacon and cheese omelette and I changed it up. Normally I do scrambled eggs, bacon and a buttery bagel. But today I went with the French toast, with a side of bacon. It was fantastic. We sat there for a while and chatted.

She told me she was scheduled to work three night shifts this weekend, so she couldn’t come down. I was disappointed I wouldn’t get to see her, but I knew it would give me a chance to clean the bat cave. Especially the bedroom. That’s definitely happening.

Lorelei is normally away on the weekends so the coast will be clear for Cherie to come over to play. I told Cherie with how hard she works and how she has to drive an hour down here to see me, maybe she needs a place to lie down and rest in the afternoon. She laughed knowing I just want to get into her pants.

We finished up and went back to her car. She’s still under the weather but getting better every day. I’m still coughing. I’m sure the smoking doesn’t help. But at least I don’t do it around her. She had to get to her class at Temple, so our encounter was short but sweet. She wasn’t as affectionate as she usually is, but she said she doesn’t want to get too worked up in broad daylight in her car, and also because she knows she’s not going to see me for two weeks.

Dating and Relationship Advice – 10 Tips On How To Prevent Cheating In A Relationship

Cheating on your partner, it would seem, has become an accepted part of having a relationship, but it shouldn’t be. Cheating hurts and it betrays a trust, and there really is no excuse for it. But, cheating is often a symptom of a deeper problem in a relationship, so here we explore some of the things that can be done to prevent cheating in a relationship:

1. Understand and agree on the boundaries

What constitutes cheating can vary from person to person. Is it OK to dance with another person, kiss a person or give them a hug? Or, to your partner, does this mean that you have cheated? There needs to be a clear understanding of what cheating means to each of you, and then there can be no mistakes.

2. Be best friends, as well as starry-eyed lovers

It’s important to be good friends, as well as lovers. You need to be able to talk to one another openly or you will find that some things are being kept a secret.

3. Learn to grow and change together

Couples need to be able to grow, in their right, and together. Everyone needs new challenges and new opportunities, so pursue those together and no one will feel the need to go elsewhere to broaden their horizons.

4. Make staying faithful a no brainer

The best defence against cheating is to make the relationship so great, that your partner has too much to lose by cheating. Communication is the key here, talk to each other about what you want, and make sure that you take account of each other’s needs.

5. Keep things interesting and try new things together

Boredom is often cited as a reason for cheating, so keep things interesting and try different things. This is not just restricted to being adventurous in the bedroom! It also means going out to different places, taking up new hobbies and even changing the channel you watch on TV.

6. Be there for each other and listen

You’ve heard it before: ‘My wife / husband / boyfriend /girlfriend doesn’t understand me’. That is as much a symptom of not listening, as it is about not understanding. Listen, when your partner says ‘let’s do something different this weekend’, or they could be doing something different next weekend with someone else.

7. Don’t take your relationship for granted or you can find yourself surprised, and alone!

Don’t assume that your partner is happy and never assume that nobody else would put with them! Just because you would never consider living apart doesn’t mean that they feel the same way. Taking someone for granted is a sure way to finding yourself surprised, and alone.

8. Don’t be too controlling

Complaining, nagging and criticising can all add up to an unhappy relationship. You are in a sharing partnership and no one of you should be controlling the other. If you are trying to control your partner, you might find that they suffer in silence, until one day, they go elsewhere for solace.

9. Be sure to let your partner know that they are appreciated and loved

You may well love your partner, care about them and would never want to be apart from them. But, when did you last tell them that? It’s about taking things for granted again, so don’t assume that your partner feels loved, tell them that they are.

10. Don’t cheat on your partner!

Cheating means different things to different people, as we have already said. Men, in particular, are very sensitive to what they might see as cheating and, even if it’s only emotional, their way of hitting back can often be cheating in revenge. In the long run, no one wins by cheating. It is far better to just be honest.
