MAYBE YOU’VE OVERLOOKED RIVERDALE BECAUSE YOU’RE BUSY WATCHING OTHER SHOWS. BUT THAT’S A MISTAKE.

MAYBE YOU’VE OVERLOOKED RIVERDALE BECAUSE YOU’RE BUSY WATCHING OTHER SHOWS. BUT THAT’S A MISTAKE. REINHART STARS AS BETTY OPPOSITE CAMILA MENDES AS VERONICA, AND THE TWO GALS’ AMIABLE RIVALRY FOR THE ATTENTION OF ONE ARCHIBALD ANDREWS IS AT THE CORE OF THE SHOW. YES, IT’S ARCHIE, BUT DARKER AND WITH MORE EDGE. A LOT MORE EDGE. REINHART, WE FOUND, IS AS THOUGHTFUL AS SHE IS GORGEOUS, ESPECIALLY ON THE TOPIC OF MEN AND DATING. WE ASKED HER TO FILL IN A FEW BLANKS. SHORE UP THE GAPS IN YOUR OWN APPROACH.

Betty and Jughead are...

“Couples goals. I’ve learned a lot through them. They prioritize their relationship even when their personal lives are insane. Jughead always listens to his girl. Betty always goes to bat for Jug. They are a team.”

Men should always remember...

“It takes little effort to make a woman’s day. It can be as simple as complimenting her outfit, kissing her sweetly before she goes to work, picking up dinner, or giving her a foot rub at the end of the night.” 

The best way to support your mate is...

“Be optimistic about her career goals. Remind your partner how beautiful she is every day if she’s insecure about her looks or weight. When she’s stressed, ask what you can do to help. Be available. Think of her first as often as possible, and prioritize her always.” 

One romantic gesture that always works is...

“Flowers. For me it’s always flowers. The last man to sweep me off my feet shipped six dozen roses to a hotel room for me on a weekend getaway.” 

More men should learn how to...

“Give without worrying about receiving.” 

Men could have more sex if they would only...

“Prioritize foreplay. It’s important. So is romance. If I came home and a guy had made me chocolate-covered strawberries, that would be better than anything else.”  

My Reading Room

IT TAKES LITTLE EFFORT TO MAKE A WOMAN’S DAY. IT CAN BE AS SIMPLE AS COMPLIMENTING HER OUTFIT, KISSING HER SWEETLY BEFORE SHE GOES TO WORK.
