From the Editor’s desk

....................... MSM’s 1st Anniversary and New Year Resolution ................................

Dear Readers, I truly cannot wrap my my head around the fact that MSM was launched one year ago and that we’ve published twelve issues. It’s a milestone that we at MSM are proud of. The road to our twelfth issue was not easy but we’ve reached it with hard work and humility. I remember late 2008, when I began telling friends that I was going to be launching a singles magazine, many wish me luck. A colleague asked “who would want to read such publication?” and urge me to not go forward with it. Ever since I conceived the idea of starting a singles magazine in November 2007, I have made it my life’s purpose to see my passion through. My resolution for last year was to successfully bring MSM into the year 2010. Though I encountered many challenges, I can happily say that I have achieved my goal. My New Year resolution for the magazine for the year 2010 is to bring up circulation and add more content. I hope to accomplish that goal and tell you about it next year. Until next month, happy New year to all! New Year equals new beginnings so make your mark. Sincerely,

Marie Stuart Noël Publisher and Editor-in-Chief 617-418-1750 Publisher@singlemag.net

BCS Prediction The last week of the year and the first week of the New Year are some of the most spectacular weeks for me. It is time to kick back and watch some of the best football using my satellite Dish. College Football is what I mean. It usually starts around the week of December 25th, and continues until the big championship sometimes early January. The Big championship, appropriately titled Bowl Championship Series (BCS) National Championship, is scheduled this year to be between Texas and Alabama on January 8th. How did they get there: After finishing last season very strong with a victory against Ohio State, the Texas Longhorns are back for more. Their most challenging game was against Nebraska on December 5th; they cruised through the rest of their schedule. They scored a total of 529 points, and allowed only 197. Texas knows that they will have their work cut out for them. In order to win, they will need Colt McCoy to handle the offense better than how he did against Nebraska. They will also need to have an answer against Alabama’s running game. After a not-so good experiment as Miami Dolphins head coach, Nick Saban has revived his coaching career with Alabama Crimson’s football team. Alabama has posted its second consecutive perfect regular season. Unlike last year, they hope Mark Ingram, the 2009 Heisman Trophy winner, will help them avoid the same embarrassment as last year when they lost two straight games (SEC Championship game, and the Sugar Bowl). In order to win, the Crimson will need to limit Colt McCoy’s abilities on defense, and let Mark Ingram’s play dictate how to proceed on offense. Prediction: I opened up this column by predicting that the Red Sox would make it to the American League Championship Series (they lost in the Division Series to the Angels). I went on to predict that the Patriots need to win three games in November (they won two). My resolution is to do better predicting games. Alabama wins. Happy Holidays to all! Happy Anniversary MSM, You’re now One. -Ken Joseney

5 ways

to keep your New Year Resolution (NYR) 1. Think of an attainable goal. Choosing goal like, I plan to lose 100lbs by bikini season is unrealistic.

2. Write down your goal. Make sure to include the steps that you want to take toward accomplishing your goal. Plan out your NYR on a calendar and keep a journal of progress. Writing your plan from start to finish will help you see it through the end.

3. Tell your family and friends about your New Year Resolution. Informing your family and close friends of your NYR will help you stay in the right path. Or they will shoot daggers at you when you go astray.

4. Cheat on your New Year Resolution. Don’t run yourself to the ground with the NYR, after all, you have a whole year to accomplish your goals. Pace yourself, take it slow and you’ll get to where you need to be.

5. See results. Record all milestone of your NYR. Your family and friends will most likely be the first ones to see your progress. The harder you work, the easier thing will get.

Dating after 40 Dating and Facebook By Joanne Giannini Back about a year ago I started dating a seemingly sweet guy who seemed perfect for me. He was newly out of a marriage and certainly not ready for anything very serious. But at the same time, he strongly gave the impression that we were exclusive as far as “intimate” issues went. So, three months into this relationship I had a party and, as expected, many pictures are taken. As typical, I posted a bunch of the pictures on my Facebook page. Now, not thinking anything of it, I “tag” him in these pictures so they show up on his Facebook page. Next thing I know he has “untagged” himself and sends me an email saying that he just looks too FAT in all the pictures! Hmmm…looked exactly the same in that picture with Bob swigging down those beers! This is when it hit me…he was seeing other people and untagged the pictures so people wouldn’t see him with me!

took it to their next date. She asked him, “Are you sure you aren’t dating anyone else” to which he replied “no, absolutely not.” So she pulls out the picture and says “well, what’s this then”? The guy says to her “well, I just started dating her.” Are you kidding me? I guess “absolutely not” really meant “absolutely yes” in this guy’s vocabulary! Again, Facebook to the rescue! In today’s social network crazed world, want to know how you can tell you are in an honest to goodness mutually committed relationship? It is the day when you and the person you are dating BOTH put “in a relationship” as your status and have links to each other’s page. That shows that neither one of you is hiding anything from your ex-boyfriends/ex-girlfriends, coworkers, family members, buddies, and so forth that you proudly call your Facebook friends. Until that day it’s best to consider yourself in a more casual dating relationship.

So here comes the dating dilemma…When is it appropriate to move to this step? Do couples need to sit down over dinner and have the “Facebook talk” now? Just talking about it seems to be one step away from reserving the hall! Heck, I’ve been dating someone for a few months now and I’m afraid to even make him my Facebook friend until I’ve had a chance to really go through and “boyfriend sanitize it” of all the numerous pictures, comments, links, etc. that may get the What Facebook did was save me from wasting time hamster in his head running too fast! with someone who clearly wasn’t on the same page as Got any of your own Facebook stories to share? Come to www.singlesmag.net and leave us your thoughts! I was. This guy obviously wanted to “have his cake and eat it too” as the saying goes and now I knew it and adjusted my feelings and expectations accordingly. Ah, there are just so many Facebook stories! My friend Peggy started dating a guy who was seriously laying it on thick. He went on and on about how he wasn’t dating anyone else, was looking for a serious relationship, etc. Well, what did my friend do? She checked out his Facebook page and there he was in a picture with another woman all over him on the very same day he had canceled a date with her because “his Mom is in the hospital.” She printed out the page and 11

Talia’s Makeup Corner Makeup Tips for THOSE “On-The-Go”! Talia Pique-Freelance Makeup Artist

5 Essential products & tips for those always on the go! Concealer Concealer is necessary only if there are some problem areas that need a quick covering, but otherwise not necessary. With your (clean) fingertip or concealer brush, apply to problem areas, and under eyes, and then blend it all over face to avoid a splotchy look. Blush With a nice angled blush brush, apply blush to cheeks, starting from the high cheekbone, and follow the natural structure with a finishing blending motion on the apples of your cheek.(Make sure color is not too bright, but calm and more of a natural shade that compliments your skin tone). Eyebrow Pencil/Filler Having filled and defined eyebrows are always helpful for a complete look, but if you are already have strong eyebrows no need for a quick application. Those with fine, over-plucked or waxed eyebrows benefit this application. When filling your eyebrows in, do not make them too dark and make sure you match the correct color. Mascara Mascara is without a doubt a MUST HAVE! Most popular colors are dark brown or black. With a quick wave of the brush, it should take no more than 15 seconds for each eye. The end result will help brighten your eyes, and can also add a little flirty twist to your look. Lip Gloss Lip Gloss is very essential for two reasons: 1) Moisturizing the lips and 2) Gives lips fullness. For those with thin lips, lip gloss helps enhance the fullness, and for those with full lips to begin with, it emphasizes the shape. Here are some helpful hints for applying lip gloss: For this quick application, use more of a nude lip color that has a hint of color, and for those with very full lips, use a lip gloss that is more of a conditioner and has less thickness to the gloss.

But does it really have to be that complicated? When it comes to finding love and companionship, are the games really all that necessary?

As the New Year approached, I spent some time pondering over the different vices I would attempt to give up. I had quit smoking, my debt had lessened and I had rebuilt some burned bridges broken down by prior ignorance, but something wasn’t quite right. For someone with a natural competitive nature, I was losing terribly at the game of love. Luckily, my current character building was stellar and my exuding confidence and ability to attract and conquer had me hitting free parking almost every time I went around the block. Then one night, I came across a very attractive unexpected player. Before I knew it, I had made a pass, given the go ahead and collect 10 digits. infatuated and intrigued, I was unaware of the many obstacles that lay ahead. That same night, my good friend was involved in some unwanted games himself. Kyle and Mason had been coworkers for two years and dating for one. They were the perfect team aside from Mason’s inability to open up about their relationship. One on one he was sensitive and caring, but out in the open he nothing of the sort. Then one night, while the two were heading to a business dinner with some coworkers, Kyle was pushed to the limit, literally. Two blocks away from their destination, Kyle was entertaining the group with flamboyant impersonations, when a homeless man turned the corner, out of nowhere shoved him to the ground and continued walking.

Needless to say, the toast began with a sarcastic congratulations to the couple and ended with a slightly embarrassed pair with a newly mended relationship. Over a week later and my unexpected player and I had made little progress. Playing games back and forth through witty text messages and purposefully missed calls, we had created a potential loss on both our parts. When I finally came to my senses and set up date, I was stricken with a head cold. When he finally came to his and rescheduled, he struck his head in a car accident and ended up in the emergency room. Then, finally as sickness and bruises faded a decision to make a move had us on a more than perfect date. Things couldn’t have been going more smoothly until my unexpected player made an unexpected announcement. Talk of returning to Europe for the next six months, had me wondering what all of the effort was for. Then it hit me; no games. We hit it off, we were on a date, and had no expectations for the future, just a see what happens attitude. In the end foolish games had almost cost me a truly fabulous dating experience. On the way home I realized; when it comes to dating and relationships playing games can only create poorly built characters lacking the understanding and truth behind the possession of true companionship.

What does your brand say about you? Your company brand is like your personality. Is it contagious? Do people immediately respond (positively!) when they hear your name or see your products? Whether it's a simple update to your company website or brochure, or a total brand overhaul complete with a new corporate identity and messaging platform, I will makeover your approach to marketing.

Personal branding

Introducing Lori, the Makeover Diva!

You are your own brand! Do you think of your personal image as a brand? YOU are a brand. How you present yourself to the world—whether you're a single in the city, soccer mom or seasoned corporate executive—projects a brand that's all yours. I can help you define and refine your personal brand through image consulting, personal shopping, and even a closet makeover.

Image Consulting

Marketing, branding & personal makeovers are Lori’s expertise. Lori helps you project an image of confidence which can improve both your business and your personal appearance. “A makeover starts with the foundation of what you bring to the table, and you work around those elements. It can be either a major overhaul, or simple improvements.” says Lori Berntsen who has over 17 years of experience in the marketing field. She has perfected her craft in four areas: Corporate makeovers, personal branding, image consulting and anti-aging makeovers. Lori discusses all four areas below. Corporate Makeovers Every piece of communication is an opportunity to market your product, service or organization. Marketing touches all aspects of your business. I help your organization stand out from the crowd. 19

Personal image + fashion = your brand When assessing your brand, there are a few factors to consider. First, your personal image and what you seek to project. Are you a scholarly bookworm? A fashionista with up-to-the-minute style? Or a street smart, free spirited type? What you choose to project, and how, defines your personal brand. You can dress it up even more by infusing it with style— however you define it.
