Over a period of five years following my divorce, I slept with a few hundred women. I was promiscuous, so I was called a sex addict. But is this label even valid — especially since there’s a view among some experts that sex addiction isn’t even a diagnosable condition? It’s very easy to scandalize behavior that deviates from the norm. Was I in need of help, or was I just loose?
Curious as to what types of scents turn men on? We polled ten men and got the scoop on the perfumes and fragrances that make a woman absolutely irresistible. Keep reading to find out.
The entire system for buying a diamond is meant to confuse, confound and incite even the most patient man.
Being a single, black father is an odd ball of wax. On one hand, women go crazy for responsible dads with adorable children. But it's not always peaches and cream, not only do I have to be ultra-careful who she meets but I have to set an example of how she should let herself be treated. On top of that, my ex and I are trying to do the co-parent thing for our little girl's sake. Yep, being a single father is an odd ball of wax.
So what do men love about women, really? We asked a handful of men what elicits lust, love and everything in between. What we received was an eclectic mixture of women charms—some we knew, some we didn't—that cause even the most rugged of men to utter "I Love You."
"I told him he had a tiny penis. He would later tell me that on top of frantically Googling and Wiki-ing average member sizes, he carried the uncertainty of his manhood into his next relationship. But how could the most alpha dog, self-assured, cocky male be completely emasculated by any hint that his junk wasn't up to snuff? Why are men so sensitive about penis size?"
Most women don't realize that our borderline mania isn't very complicated: we simply like boobs—a lot. And we like them in pretty much all shapes and sizes.
Last week I suggested some places to meet men if you're looking for a keeper. This week I'm going to tell you how to tell if a guy likes you.
Where do you go to meet decent guys? The answer, of course, is not bars. Going to bars works for drunken hook-ups (and, hey, sometimes that might be what the Dr. ordered), but for something more promising, you need to be sober and talking to someone who isn't just out for a wasted romp. Here are five tried-and-true places to meet guys more likely to be good relationship material.
Women aren't the only ones who struggle with "having it all." Men are faced with the touch choice between growing their personal fulfillment in a career or settling down with Ms. Right. An accomplished author chose work over love, delaying romance in order to pursue his dream career. He writes: "I'm 45 now. I've written for the New Yorker, the New York Times magazine, GQ, and lots of others. But I'm not married." Read the rest of his story.
For many men, Valentine's Day is an absolute nightmare. This should come as no surprise. There's a lot of pressure for us to do things we typically aren't that good at: being sweet and thoughtful, acting lovey-dovey, and making it seem like we're sensitive. Many of us resent that it's a trumped-up holiday, and that restaurants and florists jack up their prices since they know they've got us over a barrel. Plus we're always hearing about some other guy who took his girlfriend horseback riding on the beach in Aruba, so we always feel crappy if we're the Average Joe who only brought home a last-minute box of bon bons. But, like most things in life, Valentine's Day can have some good among all the crud. You just have to go about it right.
I've said this a thousand times: Romance is actually the number one issue in relationships where women feel dissatisfied. Sure, that's a sweeping generalization, but I'm pretty sure if you give me fifteen minutes alone with any woman, I could get her all riled up about romance. "What? He never makes you breakfast in bed? What? It was a decade ago since you've gotten flowers? What? He can spend twenty minutes rubbing the dog's belly, but never yours?" As a woman, I want more romance. It happens in movies. Why can't it happen in real life?
Love. The definition is much-debated, and the reality varies, depending upon where you are in your relationship. For example, love when you're walking down the aisle to exchange your "I Dos" is pretty different from the love you share when you're celebrating your hard-won, 50-year anniversary. The thing is, many of us aren't even close to the proposal phase, let alone wedding or golden anniversary. What we want to know is: Does he like me? Does he really like me? Here's how to tell he's smitten.
What happens when one man asks 10 others to divulge their deepest thoughts? You might be surprised. Here, what guys really think, from how often they cry to their biggest loves lessons, uncensored.
