Women's Clothing Decoded

I feel really sorry for the guys who read Men’s Health and get all sorts of bad advice ... usually in the form of “insightful” articles written by women. I can only imagine these ladies must have been dumped hard-core — maybe in a text message or at their mother’s funeral or something — to have it out for men the way they do. What else explains the desire to push guys in the wrong direction time and time again? To set them up not just for rejection and failure, but for utter humiliation as well? This time the readers of Men’s Health — oh, the poor lot — have been led to believe they can decipher a woman’s thoughts by the clothes she’s wearing. After the jump, Men’s Health translates different outfits and then I say what we women are really saying.

While social networks evolved, ostensibly, to make keeping in touch more time-effective as well as to enable new professional connections they have clearly devolved, for many, in to time-wasting, navel-gazing tools of alienation.

Dating A Narcissist: Should I Leave Him?

With shows like The Pickup Artist remaining perennially popular, it seems that male narcissism is flourishing if not becoming epidemic while being fueled by our culture and the media. While egomaniacs may make for irritating but good TV, they can have a truly destructive impact on the lives of their loved ones. A Chicago Tribune article about dating narcissists offered some handy tips on how to diagnose and, more importantly, decide to live with (or leave) a narcissist. The American Psychological Association lists nine core traits of narcissism, but someone only needs five of these to qualify for Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Yay!

Would You Date A Man Who Is Shorter Than You?

Would You Date A Man Who Is Shorter Than You?

Like everyone else, I watched Jeff Wong and Erin Martin's totally over-the-top save-the-date wedding video. Like many others, I noticed that the bride-to-be is taller than her groom-to-be. How much taller? Significantly. At least four inches, I think. Maybe six. As I've written about here before, I'm tall (6'1") and dating a tall woman has its own unique challenges.

Lately, I've been wondering, does that make me a heightist?

What I am saying is, I think the only men who will be "impressed" with your order of leaves and roots are the Wrong Men. I mean, seriously—do you want to be with some dude who thinks that when you're out together, it's OK for him to take down the better part of a cow, but you've got to get your dressing on the side? Who is this a-hole you want to impress?
