Height difference is a major dating problem. Biology and convention have long prevented a tall girl and a short man from getting together. But the confidence not to let her height be a problem can change the difference from a dealbreaker to a turn-on. It's all about feeling good, looking good, and realizing that those heels will probably not emasculate a quality guy.
A study in Norway shows that kids in stable (non-divorced) homes make better grades. It also shows that kids of married parents make better grades than those with cohabiting parents. So, uh, stability is important to kids or smart people stay married, one or the other.
It's all over but the crying. Paul McCartney's marriage to Heather Mills is over. The judge came back with a settlement figure today that was between what both parties were requesting. Again, in a divorce no one really won. Except for the person that got $50 million for 4 years of marriage. She did OK.
The truth is, some men are all about being pretty - it's the metrosexual movement that's swept much of the nation. Jeans that accent his - ahem - assets, Swedish moisturizers and expensive pedicures? Not just for you anymore. While some women are repulsed by it, many are excited that their man is taking care of himself in the best way for her. What's your take?
Music legend Paul McCartney has been embroiled in an ugly divorce for nearly a year now. But it looks like the end is in sight. A few more days of testimony and document presentation should end this legal fiasco. And if a few weeks from then, the judge can present the final split of assets. Unfortunately, there is a possibility of an appeal.
Never mind those two famous planets—researchers at the California Institute of Technology and Baylor University have found new evidence that male and female earthlings are wired differently. The documentation: Brain scans detailing activity in men and women playing an investment game with an anonymous partner. One subject received 20 monetary units and could keep them or invest any portion with an unknown “trustee” subject in another lab, miles away. The money invested would triple every time, but the trustee could choose how much of the profit to return to the original investor. The invest-and-return cycle ran up to ten times, while a functional magnetic resonance imager, or fMRI, captured pictures of local brain activity, scanning the players’ brains every two seconds.
Paul McCartney and Heather Mills are due in court every day this week to hash out their divorce. This is reportedly the last chance for them to try this in private before it goes to a public court. This has been a strange case with celeb sightings, offers, counter-offers, outbursts, and accusations. It will end up being the most expensive divorce in British history.
The UK Times Online published an article this morning on pick-up lines heard 'round the world. One would think that the U.S. would pale in comparison to the Italians or French, but surprisingly, American men come across as thoughtful, complex beings who executive multi-step pick-ups. One Tango staffer says he’s planning to borrow from the Germans and try out “Your eyes are the same color as my Porsche.” Talk dirty to me...
If you read Genevieve's post on growing a boyfriend yesterday, and you're still in the market for a "grow-your-own," we've found even more innovative ways to get your hands on Mr. Right. Actually, Kim Yarmuch has a solution: Her cheeky Man Seeds blossom into six different men, from a thinker (Philosopher Regularum) to a techie (Coolum Geekus)—and they’re only $2 each at manseeds.com. The idea hatched as a birthday joke, when Yarmuch gave homemade Man Seeds to A friend in need. "She was single, it was summer, and she was just a little down," she says. "Turns out lots of people get the joke and are willing to pay money for it."
A recent study done by the Rockway Institute and Alliant International University showed that homosexual couples are generally closer than their heterosexual counterparts. Though they gave no statistics or examples, this sort of makes sense. Which begs the question, can men and women ever be equal? Can they ever really be friends?
What happens when nuptials collide with the Net?
Is giving orders to a man clad only in his skivvies on your holiday wish list? You’re not alone. And French clothing store Celio is listening. The boutique handpicked 17 guys with a certain je ne sais quoi to act as fit models, who offer to try on items for women buying for their men and unsure of their size. The “Shoppenboys” range from small to XXL, and each proudly wears clearly-labeled caleçons (boxers) when on the job. More than 1,000 men applied for the coveted spots last year, despite the fact that the positions were unpaid. The ’boys now have a website (shoppenboys.com) featuring an online dance contest where hopefuls submit videos of their moves for viewers to grade. While the site is in French, some things transcend language, n’est-ce pas?
