That's right, ladies. The good men you pine for are right there, all up in your grill, listening to your bellyaching, patiently enduring your inability to manage your own flamboyant, capricious romantic expectations and dreary reality. These good guys are co-workers, classmates, and, most importantly, friends.
Choices all around me, right and wrong. It seems I always seem to pick the worst choice possible for myself.. Ranging from how easy it is to say yes to a simple "relationship," feeling alone with your choices, the lack of a Mother who cares, and the possible start of a 31yr age difference relationship...ahh!.....maybe???....ugh, i just don't know
In all your concern about cellulite and bikini body, you may have lost sight of the fact that guys are also self-conscious about being overweight. Seriously-nearly 45 percent of men claim to be dissatisfied with their body for one reason or another. And considering there's an obesity epidemic going on, there's good reason for that. So, while you may think that guys can take a little extra teasing about love handles, bingo wings and hungry butt, don't be so quick to call him out on those extra pounds. Specifically, avoiding the following oversize offensives will help you keep from leaving a bad taste in his mouth.
You know that guy, the one who's not really your boyfriend, but isn't just a friend either? The one you hope will turn into something eventually, but who's dragging his feet when it comes to making a move? If the answer is yes, you're stuck in a fromance, and it's time to get out and move on. Here's how.
After a new man enters your life and he becomes your boyfriend you naturally want to fold him into every aspect of your life. Over time you will want to introduce him to your friends, your colleagues and ultimately your family. But introductions should be handled with care and as we have learned, should be timed appropriately.
He gets along well with women. Always has. His girl friends outnumber his guy friends about five to one. It's just like this with some men. But what happens when man with a million female companions suddenly has a girlfriend? It depends on his actions. It matters not what type you are and how you've flet in previous relationships. The tone is set by your guy. Here's what we mean.
Buzzfeed posted a great list from Tiny Cartridge of "Boyfriend Criteria," including the usual "smart," "cute," "funny," and the more unusual like "did not pick Charmander as first Pokémon." There's also a list of pluses ("glasses," "good shoes," "good tattoo") and minuses ("annoying," "too tight pants," "think you're sooo smart"). Since I'm getting married in three days (!!!), the list got me thinking about my "husband criteria" and how well my fiancé fits my list. After the jump, see how he does.

You know the type. He has a rock-solid relationship with his mother and was coddled by her way past breaking over into adulthood. In fact, he's still regularly soothed by her matronly ways. Would you want to date a Mama's Boy, though? A few pros and cons to consider first.
The results of the man survey (otherwise known as Askmen.com's Grate Male Survey) are in. And they have given us a rare, coveted glimpse into the male psyche. One of the questions, in particular, piqued our interest. It's semi cheating-related and reads as follows: "Have you ever fantasized about a girlfriend or wife's friend?" See how the men answered.
If anyone ever had a reason not to get back with an ex, I did. He was the quintessential on-and-off Bad Boyfriend and not only were all my friends painfully aware of this fact, when he dumped me on the same day my father died (think Jessica and Tony birthday sitch x 10), then again after a similar life tragedy, it had finally become clear to me as well. I moved on fast. Literally days after he'd hit me with yet another, "I can't do this anymore," I somehow managed to enter into a relationship with a man who was easygoing and ridiculously sweet, so I hardly had time to mourn.
