Worry not, non-athletic individuals of the world. Sure, we don't excel in sport, but that doesn't mean we aren't good at other games. Take dating, for example.
What would you do if there was an app that gave you access to your FUTURE self, so you could learn what mistakes to avoid in your love life? If you're like us, you'd download it stat (and probably not even mind paying for it). That's why we were huge fans of last season's web series by Alloy Entertainment, 'Dating Rules From My Future Self.'
If dating had hard and fast rules, there would be no single people. The world would be a relatively happy place where everyone was in love and beamed happiness as they held hands in the park and merrily frolicked along. ...Right?
We have all been there and we have all had that awkward moment looking at our phones and the door wishing you were going through it at that exact moment and saying goodbye to this person and never seeing them ever again in your life. I am talking about the worst date ever! I was recently on a date that mirrored this exact situation and I was praying that my phone would ring and I could tell anyone even a telemarketer that they have saved me from this person and I would love them forever if they just stayed on the phone with me while I went through the spiel of the "family emergency&
You are out with your friends and you meet a guy and of course you give him your phone number and he gives you his. Now, with this day and age of texting, LinkedIn, and Facebook it is hard to imagine a guy taking more than a day to contact you, but be patient! Do not under any circumstances contact him FIRST! Men like to have the upper hand no matter what the relationship books tells you on how it's ok for women to contact men don't do it!
Matchmaking is an old practice. On the frontier, because farms were far apart and it was hard to meet other eligible singles, families used dances to set up their children. In medieval times, Catholic clergymen and Jewish rabbis played Cupid within their communities. For centuries, European royalty consistently matched up their heirs-to-the-throne with heirs from other countries for diplomatic alliances. So this matchmaking business? It's not a new thing.
I know there is no specific code for this and some women's intuition is better than others, but I am going to give some tips. In the past it was taboo for women to approach men while they are out with their girls. But now more often than not it seems women have been mustering up their confidence to talk to a guy they find attractive. So, how do you know when it's time to walk away? Well, if he is not giving you eye contact and looking around is one good sign.
The past few months I have been giving advice to a friend about his relationship with his girlfriend. Or should I say his "friend". He thought she was his girlfriend, unfortunately she never got that memo or he never got the memo she wasn't interested in a long term affair. I found out through the wonderful world of Facebook that she was with, (shocker) another guy friend of mine. And of course that guy friend of mine was someone I knew pretty well. He is the type that gets what he wants, he doesn't wait around for anyone.
In online dating, making a good first impression is key. People can easily pass over your profile with the blink of an eye if they don't immediately see something they like. A recent study actually confirmed that men are extremely visual, looking mostly at the photos and less at the profile, making it even more important for women to choose wisely.
by Julie Robinson Dare I say it? I’ve been having some trouble with the police recently. No, I’m not getting pulled over for public nudity / speeding while intoxicated / cooking meth in a two-liter jug in the backseat of my Nissan crossover. No. The cops I’m talking about are those fucking annoying Craigslist self-appointed cyber cops who willy-nilly delete the, albeit, quasi-legitimate advertisements I post on Craigslist a regular basis trying to promote my totally legit business. Whew!
Whew. The Major League Baseball season is opening up today* and not a moment too soon, as the college basketball season came to a close a scant 36 hours ago and life would be awful if we just had the NBA and NHL to glance at over the rim of a pint glass.
What are the rules of Guy Code? We decided to round up some #GuyCode tweets that make us feel warm and fuzzy about men.
End your pattern by becoming aware. Uber aware. Know what triggers your pattern (e.g., what tips off that nightly conversation) so you can stop the cycle before it starts running without your permission. Then decide how you want to act instead. What's your ideal state if your pattern didn't exist? Consciously replace your patterned response with an action that matches how you want things to look.
