Do you know what a 'Honey Trap' is? It's a person used to catch cheating spouses. A good looking honey (female or male) turns on the charm to 'trap' a potential cheater. Sounds a little unethical, right? Well so is cheating. This could make a great reality show.
Recently, while pursuing my unscientific study of relationships for this column, I came across a hapless pushover in his 40s whom I’ll call Hank. Hank had a bad habit of making loans to his girlfriends. “So, now,” he says with a weirdly amused sense of persecution, “all my exes owe me money!” He broods over the ethics. “If I broke up with them, do they still owe me? What if they broke up with me?!”
I secretly love going to other people's weddings. Fred and I have been to six since we've been together. I always outwardly make a big fuss—"I can't believe we have to go to another wedding this weekend. Ugh." But inside I'm thinking "Yay! I get to dress up and eat free pot stickers and drink free vodka tonics and slow dance with Fred!" It beats movie night at home with a leftover carton of pork lo mein.
Excuse us while we take this irresistible opportunity to say that men can learn a thing or two from women. When it comes to workouts, XYs may find that XX techniques help them bust through fitness roadblocks: the spare tire that won’t deflate, the toes that refuse to be touched, the nagging injury. But this one goes both ways—spying on the guys’ locker room can be useful for the girls.
Is Valentine’s Day just another ploy for Hallmark to stack dollars? Apparently not, since they haven’t covered all bases when it comes to that perfect card. Some of us here at Tango took it upon ourselves to come up with a few V-Day greeting card concepts that we think would sell big. Feel free to toss out that cutesy “Dog with a heart that says ‘I Woof You’” card and use one of ours…
The Helmsley Hotel in New York is sick and tired of couples having all of the fun on Valentine's Day. So they've decided to do something about it, throw a party. The hotel is having an event for singles to meet up, share some cocktails, get over exes, and generally enjoy themselves. There's a reduced rate if you bring a friend, so get to it.
Contrary to popular (guy) belief, Valentine's Day is not entirely invented by Hallmark. Was it made popular by them and other retailers? Probably. But there was a real St. Valentine but his day may be holdover from a Roman fertility festival. Well, the next time you're in the British Isle, you can check out Valentine's bones (possibly) in Dublin and the first Valentine in London.
A study at Stanford has said that men are more likely to become addicted to video games than women. Using MRI scans, the researchers saw more activity in the area of the brain related to addiction in men. The study also showed that men are typically more territorially focused.
Turns out, women have a Goldilocks-style preference for male features, specifically a man’s height and foot size. On average, we like ‘em not too big, not too small; somewhere in the middle is just right. The Today show this morning featured an international study that revealed most women found a medium-sized foot out of three different-sized male feet to be most appealing. In contrast, men overwhelmingly deemed the smallest female foot to be the most attractive. Curiously, Tanzanian men were the only subjects to prefer the biggest female foot to the other two.
A Canadian professor has recently woke from a three-day coma. He was put into that coma via oxygen deprivation. The was deprived of oxygen by bondage. He was bound by a professional dominatrix in New York. He was visiting New York under false-pretenses according to his family. He claims that he's over this scene.
You still have time to make history! According to Fox, FastLife is coordinating what will possibly be the largest speed-dating event on Valentine’s Day. The company is planning to set a new Guinness world record, with more than 2,500 singles in attendance. The catch? The international events must take place simultaneously, so that means that daters in New York and Toronto must meet at 3 am (at a bar), London at 8 am (at a coffee shop), and Sydney at 7 pm (on a beach!).
