Here are a few tips about men.

Men have sex on their minds. That means every hour of every day. It’s just the way it is. It trumps everything. Case in point. I Just watched The Millionaire Matchmaker. Both guys picked the best-looking women with the biggest boobs. Young guys?  They’re hard-wired for sex, 24/7/365 and are easily aroused.

If it’s out of anger, they blast it out and move on. Unlike the dysfunctional behavior on those housewives shows and spinoffs, men express themselves without a lot of subtext.  Guys really are simple creatures, and I state this as a positive. Clarity and reliability are reassuring traits. Men let you know where they stand. If you’re unsure about a man’s opinion, just ask him. Most men will give you their two cents on any subject or situation except when it comes to….
