7 Ways to Get a Man's Attention (Not Good Ways, But Ways)

Sure, much of the attention you get if you follow this advice will not be good; it might, in fact, come under the heading of "shocked" and/or "slightly horrified."

WEAR RED!!!!!!

Thanks for the great advice! I've already worn an all red jump suit with red stilettos, red make-up, red wig, red hat, the whooole get-up to a nightclub. Let me tell you, it drew men like flies to a venus fly trap! Hallelujuah! I haven't gotten so much attention from men in years!!!! Phone numbers were literally being shoved into my sparkling red purse! I advise EVERYONE to listen to Dr. Barreca on that tip. Once again, thank you so much for the advice. I will try some of your other tips tonight when I go out hunting for more sexy suitors.

XOXOXOXOXO - Jezebelly Stephens

They'd work on me!

They'd work on me!
