Stereotypes exist in all kinds of situations: ask any woman where the worst place to find a good man is, and they'll inevitably either reply with either a bar or a nightclub. The consensus seems to be that guys in bars or nightclubs are only interested in finding a woman to have sex with, and nothing more.
One thing you can usually depend on with men (other than leaving the toilet seat up), is that you can take our words at face value. Our speech is primarily goal-oriented and our words can be taken literary. One important example to the contrary, however, is the phrase, “I’ll call you.” On the surface, this phrase sounds simple enough: Three little words that seem to promise a future interaction.
If you're worried about what your significant other is fantasizing about, you can stop right now. A new study, conducted at Spain's University of Granada, says men and women in relationships have pretty similar sexual fantasies, in that both genders fantasize about their loved one.

Society has sent women the message that having needs makes us "too much" for men. We have been told that wanting more time with a man or needing his affection makes us clingy and neurotic. This isn't true. Just because we crave a human connection doesn't mean that we are going to drown a man in all of our needs.
Men, men, men! Can't live with them, and can't—well, you know the rest. I adore men, much to my own detriment, I really do. Now, don't draw conclusions that I am one of "those blondes." I just simply love men in that I actually, truly, emphatically can find something appealing and lovable about almost any guy I meet. Young, old, short, tall, dark, light, funny, not—well, okay, they do have to be funny (and smart but mostly funny). But guys, even in my mind, there are a few things you need to learn about giving jewelry. Here's your crash course from someone on the inside:
ARE ALL NAMES THE SAME? In 1948, psychologist Bertram R. Forer did an experiment with his UCLA students. He asked them to take a personality test and then offered personalized horoscopes based on the tests' very specific results. When he asked students to rate the horoscopes' accuracy, students gave them an average of 4.26 out of 5. However, he gave all his students exactly the same horoscope, which we will discuss. This experiment is a favorite one that is done in psych 101 classes.

Although, as I have stated in the past, men are fairly simple creatures, there is still a side of us we try to keep to ourselves. And while it may seem we are hiding something in an effort to increase our mystique, we are, in fact, simply concealing a number of dirty little secrets that we don’t particularly want you to know.
PUBLISHED BY: Dr. Yvonne Fulbright, PhD. Contrary to popular belief, humans simply cannot experience orgasm every time they’re sexually active. Male or female, you would be hard pressed to find the person for whom this happens. Yet the desire to have an orgasm more times than not is understandable, and realizing such has become a quest for many. Factors that lend themselves to a man or woman not experiencing climax on a consistent basis include:

You can tell by how they speak about men ... and it's understandable. Divorce is very hard, and many women have been hurt, disappointed, cheated on, controlled and/or lied to. Yet, these are the same women who are dating after divorce and want to find a loving man as a romantic partner.
