I nagged and nagged, but finally the fabulous Mr. Flynn agreed to be my Guy Day interviewee. What can I tell you about him? Well, he’s from New Jersey, but without the accent. He’s almost a full foot taller than me. And Kate Upton is on his island.
Also, he edited my interview questions. Yep, I like ’em like that.
Imagine, you’re totally unlucky enough to never have met me (I know, I know it’s heartbreaking) You walk into a bar and see three equally attractive women. How do you decide who to hit on?
Sometimes we don’t have to ask a question to get an answer. Translation, sometimes a girl is just too darn shy to go up to a shirtless man and say, “Hey there, um, excuse me, sir, um young man…wow, you’re really cute…I, I, I, I mean, what I mean to say is what is your perspective on being a cowboy in southern California which is traditionally known for soulful surfers, not country cuties ?

I have called on friends throughout the world and they’ve agreed to help by answering a few probing questions about the culture they live in, their daily routines and their views on marriage and family. So let’s give these brave men a round of applause for being so forthright with their answers and see what they have to say.

The Mermaids and a delightful young waiter named Noah have a great ‘cute meet’ story. For those of you who may not have heard us gushing all over Facebook, personal websites, Twitter and the Internet in general, this past April was the Washington Romance Writers annual retreat. A very special occasion in its own right, it was made even better when a handful of Mermaids were able to extend our stay for a few extra days of writing. And what better way to celebrate than with a fine meal and impecable service!
Enter the eight of us to New York J& P Pizza restaurant. Poor, poor guy is all I could think. Here was this young man, with a table full of loud, laughing, story-telling, grown women depending on him for this good sevice and food.
