Renewed vows protocol, dating a loser and do you cry-max?
As the week ends, so does my resolve to keep it fresh, original and compelling. I'm only human, and a bit of a Friday Afternoon Ninja (someone who is mysteriously gone at 4 p.m. every Friday). So, I scoured the interjam for both of us and find the best of the best.
Intentional and full-grown virgins exist, and they are not all religion-y. Lemondrop has a great first-person essay about keeping your word to stop at third.
The team over at The Frisky is all about breaking down his choice in under garments. They run down the most popular cuts of man drawers, analyze it and give celeb examples. Nicely done, and thanks for letting us in on another name for the banana hammock.
DivineCaroline may be the most polite site on the interweb. They're the "Charlotte" of web romance content (not that I know what that means). This time around, etiquette regarding vow renewal weddings.
Em & Lo, my homies, have two great polls bumping right now: Poll 1 at EmAndLo.com: If you're a broad, have you cry-maxed? Poll 2 at EmAndLo.com: If you're a dude, have you tear-gasmed? I believe Tucker Max's story about accidentally macing himself and a "date" misses the point of the query altogether.
Fox's iMag has a video on how to spot a loo-hoo-zah-her (note: it's seldom a guy who tries to spell out Jim Carrey's lines from Ace Ventura). Is there such thing as a female loser? Do guys even worry about that?
And another downer at Jezebel: the painted gals discuss the pros and cons (it's largely cons) of single motherhood in South Korea. Wait, South Korea? They're the good guys, right?
Rich Santos, resident dude at Marie Claire, gets into the nitty gritty of sleeping with your boss… particularly when that boss is Dave Letterman.
Limelife lets us know that most people buy his, Letterman's, apology. It sure doesn't suck to be Dave Letterman, except for the shingles, a sometimes weak ticker and people attempting to blackmail, extort and stalk your at every other turn.
And Nerve gives a little advice about a friends with benefits situation. Not on how to make it happen. And not on how to take it to the next level. But on how to make it un-happen. Learn to take the "with benefits" right out of that equation.
