You know that moment when your eyes widen and you think, did he really just do that? Sometimes, no matter how much you love him, your man does that one thing that just irritates the hell of you. New research shows annoying behavior can actually slow down your brain activity. So listen up, ladies, you’ve got your minds to protect. Here's what you have to get your guys to out the kibosh on.
Question: I've been dating a man for over seven months now. He is 51 and I am 44. I discovered right off the bat that he can't last but a few seconds as soon as he is inside of me. Now in the beginning he said he was too excited, or it was on my territory (ie. my house… so he insisted we go to his house, but same “short” story).
You meet this radiant, confident and modern woman. You notice her at Whole Foods or at business networking event, and you are captivated by her magnetic and positive energy. You look at her and smile. Because of her friendly demeanor, you walk up to her and start a conversation. You notice how easy it is to talk to her. You leave feeling happy and excited. When you do call her and ask her out on a date, she says, "Yes, I would be happy to go on a date with you this Saturday."
We live in complicated, controversial times. There is upheaval all around us, and vastly differing opinions as to the appropriate way to resolve virtually every problem. The “right” and the “left” can’t seem to agree on anything…except maybe that they’re both unquestionably, devoutly devoted to the principles that define them – whatever those may be. But there remains one issue that is more hotly debated than all others combined. I am talking about, of course, men’s insistence on leaving the toilet seat up.&nb
One would think wedding vows are unambiguous. Straightforward. No subtext, no exceptions. Love is love. Right?“ "Not so,” say some men. “If you get really sick or disabled, I’m outta here.” A study published in the journal Cancer reported that, of the 515 married patients with serious cancer or multiple sclerosis followed over 5 years, the divorce rate was about the same as among the general population, 11.6%. The difference was that women were 6 times more likely to be the ones bei
Question: My question is this…how long do you wait to sleep with a man…one month, two months, more? Since my eventual goal is to be married, how do I know that the man I’m dating sees me in his future and not just as a nine-month, ten-month, or even one-night stand? ...Camille
Men and women are different. Our brains are wired differently, our hormones are different, and our emotional needs are different. What usually happens is that men do for women what men need and women do for men what women need. We tend to give what we want to receive. So, in the case of relationships, do NOT do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Lately there has been a proliferation of bad news: Slow economic recovery, a soft housing market, corporate insolvency, wars, violence, famine, natural disaster, and the cancelation of “Dog The Bounty Hunter.” Thus, rather than deal with anything too serious in this Election Day column, I decided to be a little more light-hearted. The following is the result - an ode to the bond between men and their “manhood.”
People have been debating whether or not men and women can be "just friends" for years. In the movies when you have a best friend of the opposite sex (that is heterosexual) your story line can only end two ways: in eternal love or in heartbreak.
We all know men and women are different. Besides the obvious plumbing, they seem to speak a different language too. But it goes much further than that. When it comes to being sexy, both genders have unique views.
Sometimes you can be with someone and all the stars align and you have mind blowing Samantha Jones-like sex. It's incredible. Sometimes you don't. Sometimes sex is so awful you're like, "Bro. WHAT are you doing!" Sometimes guys are so annoying in bed you wish it were appropriate to text your girlfriends during the act to tell them exactly what he is doing.
Question: I have been dating this widower, Bob, for about three months now. He has had a woman at work, Deborah, hitting on him. In fact, she pretty much has asked Bob to marry her. I told him he needs to tell her about me, but he said his personal life is none of her business. I began feeling insecure and pushed the issue of marriage, feeling that if she can ask and is not in a relationship with him than I should be at the top of the list for a proposal.
Back in August, The New York Times wrote about a study that bolsters the idea of a male biological clock. Turns out, mutations in older men's sperm may lead to a higher risk of autism and schizophrenia in offspring. The results of the study weren't definitive, but they are confirmation that all this talk about 40 being the new 30 is a bunch of hooey.
When we look at the divorce rate, the number of relationships that fall apart before people get married and people who stay together even though they are miserable, we might conclude that people go out of their way to wreck their relationships.
