Turns out researchers have found good enough reason. A new study done by the University College London and published in the Journal of Theoretical Biology shows that the longer you wait to seal the deal with the guy you're dating, the greater the chance that your relationship will last in the long haul. The study also found that men who can keep it in their pants longer are more reliable than those that can't, who are less likely to stick around for a relationship. In fact, accolade for women who wait is nothing new. In the late 1980's, a study of 5,232 married adults found that 12 percent reported marital dissatisfaction. Five years later, 78 percent of those who stuck it out in their "very unhappy marriages" said that their marriages were currently happy.
When do you tell your date that you're in an open relationship? Before you start dating? Then you might scare people away. But if you tell them afterwards they may feel that you've mislead them.

We're at all times on the hunt for a mate with the "best genes." It's evolutionary Darwinism.
A recent study published in the European Urology journal is saying men who garden, dig or mow the lawn for a minimum of 30 minutes a week have an easier time getting and maintaining an erection. Researchers at the Medical University of Vienna are claiming a newfound interest in tending to weeds, flowers and plants can "dramatically improve a man's performance in bed." By a third, they say. As it turns out, it isn't the relationship with flowers and the outdoors that gets a man's penis revving—it's the exercise. Men who burn as little as 1,000 extra calories a week reduces their risk of impotence. Men who go the extra mile and burn 4,000 calories a week can improve their circulation in such a profound way that it more than halves their risk of erectile dysfunction.
A bachelor party is a sacred time in a man's life. It represents his last gasp as a footloose and fancy-pantsed dude before he takes the plunge into marriage. The prospect of agreeing to "have" one woman for the rest of your life is, obviously, carte blanche to go to Las Vegas, roll some dice and make a few really bad decisions. And the dudes you bring along can make it a time to remember (because it will not last forever). Choose wisely and keep in mind that a bachelor party snub (for guys) is way worse than not getting invited to the wedding. Here are 10 characters on TV who'll keep that stag party off the chain but, ideally, not get you knifed: Brian The Dog (Family Guy): Peter's faithful best friend is erudite, clever, sarcastic and an alcoholic. While he may pretend to be above strip clubs, he’s not. Be careful, he may insist on seeing a show or doing something constructive.
Choosing can presidential candidate is just like dating for people who are passionate about politics. Padma Atluri has been dating presidents since she was 21. She writes, "I've never really dated Obama, or Clinton (although he is my "first"), or any politician, for that matter. But the intensity I've felt towards them rivals any other bond I've shared. Because, let's face it: political courtship, especially in an election year, parallels romantic courtship. I've found myself going through the same patterns with presidential candidates as I do with the boys I like. Below, the nine benchmarks of dating men and presidential candidates. "
