With a gaggle, you’re just living your life with some interesting guys in it, every day keeping yourself open to that moment when love will suddenly emerge out of it.
The gaggle increases your chances of ultimately meeting the right guy.
"Your gaggle is the group of guys who you might not be 'dating' or in a defined relationship with, but who fulfill some sort of need in your life," Massa explains.
"They are helping you figure out who you are, what you want, and what type of man you ultimately desire." These dudes can include The Hot Sex Prospect, The Career Booster, and The Ex-Boyfriend Who's Still Around.
When you hear a song you think a guy would like, send it to him on Spotify. Next time you're buying concert tickets for a band you love, buy two—and don't immediately decide who gets to be your plus-one. The key is getting the guy out of a familiar context. That's what happened to one guy Massa interviewed who met his now-fiancé on a volleyball team.
For once, don't jam your calendar with plans a season in advance. Only when they finally went out to dinner together did they both realize their connection.
So stop obsessing about finding The One, and start appreciating the great guys in your life now—your “gaggle.” Here’s why. How warm and fuzzy do you feel whenever your plus-one is making the whole table laugh?
I’ll never forget that day because it’s the same day I visited the Empire State Building. I’m not talking about a guy who just believes in you and is cool with you having a career. Well, it’s a new day and a new study about subjective topics like moving in with your partner!
Every interaction counts, from the conference room to G-chat to the soccer field.
Start seeing technology as a useful tool to get to know guys better. Before you know it, your convos will be getting offline."Instead of trying to micromanage your love life, create open spots for men, planned or unplanned, to fill," Massa says. Until you do, a guy may not even realize you're into him.
It’s even more nerve-wracking when you try to do The Moth, a monthly live storytelling event in multiple cities that’s also an NPR radio show.
It’s so anxiety inducing because you basically have to come fully prepared to tell a five minute story on the selected topic, but you might not get to go. I had lied because I was 22 years old and lying to strangers in bars was fun.
