Jill is the type of person that likes to be in the thick of things. She likes to know everything about everyone immediately, whether she knows them or not. This trait was shown when she speaks to Bethenny in the pool about Kelly, wanting Bethenny to answer a million and one questions. Bethenny started making a joke of it, but Jill kept going at it. Jill was also drilling me at Aston's party about Kelly. I do not know anyone else that does this; it is as if she gets obsessed. Personally I found it annoying when she was badgering me about Kelly. I just wanted to relax at the party and she was putting me through what felt like an inquisition.
Bethenny has a great sense of humor and a strong sense of herself. She and I laughed our butts off at lunch that day. It was so much fun. She took in my tips and felt that they can still apply today, 15 years later. I do not know if she will take them to heart though. The important point is to take it in and take what you want from them.
The best advice I can give single women for dating is one word: ATTITUDE. You need to come off secure, not desperate for love and marriage. YOU will decide if you like "your date," not if he likes you. I had been in a five-year relationship and engaged when I realized that being with man I was about to marry would be the biggest mistake of my life. When I ended it I made a pact with myself that I would not get seriously involved with anyone for at least 6 months. When I would go out on dates, I would tell my date that I just ended a 5-year relationship and did not want to make another mistake. I said that we could date, but I was not ready to get serious. Well saying that had the opposite effect on all the men I dated - they ALL wanted to get serious with me! I realized it was my attitude that compelled them to wanting more from me. I was not lamenting about being single, unmarried, with a broken engagement. I came across as a secure, independent woman with her own life, which now they all wanted to be a part of! This was the lesson of a lifetime for me.
