Brokenhearted Man Robbed Of Engagement Ring

A man suffered the double indignity of being dumped by his fiancée, and then robbed by a con artist. Pile onto that the third indignity of being maced and it made for a really terrible several months. I suppose Craigslist is a crapshoot.

Why You Have A Horrible Profile Picture

Old Guys Still Interested In Doing It

A study of older Australian men shows that they want sex more regularly. Essentially, libido does dip as men age, but some men stay very interested in sex as their bodies still produce goodly amounts of testosterone. Of the 2,700 men polled between the ages of 75 and 95, roughly half still found sex to be between somewhat and very important, though less than a third were getting it with any regularity. Which means that around 20 percent of old Australian men are not getting the sexin' they want.

Does Marriage Make Men Softies?

There is a theory that if we locked away all dudes from puberty through car rental age (25), we'd erase the lion's share of violence. Young men do really dopey things (sometimes to look cool for chicks) and, periodically, those things get people hurt, killed or arrested. But there is a theory that it's marriage that makes men less crazy. Though some argue that men who get married were less up for shenanigans in the first place. You decide.
