Today, the New York Post's Cindy Adams reminds readers that the holidays are approaching. Since "everybody needs somebody to love," Adams interviews matchmaker Lisa Ronis about how lonely women can best "find a warm body."

The first of Ronis' bright ideas, according to Adams, is "look pretty. Package the femininity. Hair done, makeup done, lose the weight, manicure a must. Never walk the dog without lip gloss."

Second? "Feel good about yourself." Which should be no problem, assuming you already wear lip gloss to walk the dog.

Ronis and Adams encourage women to hit on everything with a pulse, from pharmacist to decorator.

"You can find 'product' (read: guys) anywhere," Ronis tells Adams. "Charity events, dog runs, sports places, tennis games, gyms, bicycle clubs. In airplanes."

If you're anxious to have someone make you feel unfeminine and refer to men as "product" in the flesh, Ronis does personal consultations.
