    LOL, yoga pants. I teach yoga, so I know well the look of a man who's just caught a glimpse of a PYT in yoga pants. They really do leave nothing to the imagination.
    Austin has a sizeable primal/paleo meetup group btw. You can try to meet guys there...

    Austin is in general a good place to meet guys who are both intelligent and attractive IMO.

    Personally, I really like skirts and/or dresses. Not saying that I dislike pants on a woman, they can also be quite nice. Jeans for example can be really nice, especially if they fit well.

    Leggings / skirt, flats, funky top. Make sure you're comfortable.

And it's not like I'm only seeking ripped guys, just that my interests are largely fitness AND I work in fitness so I tend to mostly meet people from that world.
    Two words: martial arts! I think it attracts a really interesting kind of man... Fit, yet sensitive / spiritual in their own way. (Obviously this is a huge generalisation, and is mostly based on my boyfriend being into martial arts ) But I think men who are into a sport, as opposed to just pounding the gym, have an extra dimension to those who mostly just want to look good.

    I do agree with Mr. Anthony though - I don't think you wearing the right thing, or going to the right place will help you meet the right guy. It sounds like you're attracted to douches because of a subconscious reason. Maybe ask yourself why?

    (sorry for the two bit psychology).

    Oh, re. younger men: Weirdly, most of my female friends are in relationships with younger men. I think it's the new thing. I never dated a younger man in my life: thought it was a stupid idea. And now I'm 31 and my boyfriend is 28 He loves that I'm older. He thinks it means I'm mature

    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Basically you want leggings that are roomy and hardwearing, plus a decent pair of breathable waterproofs in case the weather comes in, in terms of torso, go for layers - a short sleeve base layer, with a fleece and then a waterproof overcoat, wait sorry, wrong thread, thats my wild camping gear.....

    I'm 31 as well, and I've been dating older women almost exclusively for the past 4 years. I find women in their mid-late 30's to be less clingy, more realistic in their expectations, and more libidoistically compatible and sexually comfortable with themselves. Obviously it becomes more important that they've made good choices with regards to taking care of themselves, but that's important to me anyway. So I +1 your manfriend's choice.

    I agree with you on this. I'm a country boy, so seeing a good-looking girl in some boots and jeans does something for me. There was this one time, though, where I saw a girl wearing a "Guns Save Lives" t-shirt. I knew right then that I wanted to talk to her, but she was already jogging away.
    In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

    This is like runners race day advice and makes a hell of a lot of sense.

    Yep. Always always troubleshoot outfits...interviews, first dates...

    And also, just because neon green helmets are the new thing over at Paris fashion week doesn't mean the guy will appreciate it.
