What are the rules of Guy Code? We decided to round up some #GuyCode tweets that make us feel warm and fuzzy about men.
WHAT MEN THINK
There are some good men out there. Believe that, shawty. More man-myths SHATTERED. One-night stands can very easily result in relationships. How to figure out a guy's relationship intentions. Why do men disappear? Why do dudes like girl-on-girl sexy action so much? When can you date a friend's ex with impunity? Things you can do this 11/11/11 (on a date). A man loves food, sometimes more than sex.
My idea for today's post came from a seminar I hosted last week called "Making Sense of Men." It was co-led by a trainer for PAX Programs International, which is in the business of educating women about men. If you haven't familiarized yourself with PAX, which is the brilliant work of Alison Armstrong, I can't recommend it enough. I attended my first course with them 10 years ago, and it was a life-changing experience.
I have to admit that as much as I love the idea of cooking, it can be exhausting to prepare meals from scratch all the time if you also have a job and a life. Some days, tinkering around in the kitchen feels relaxing, and if you're in a relationship, what's more romantic than cooking up a meal your partner will love? But other times, I just want to read a book or listen to music while munching on takeout.
Depo Provera may cause memory loss. Thirteen things that dudes really dig about ladies. When should you start leaving the bathroom door open? Some women are really having a hard time finding a great guy; such a hard time that they're making a show about it. The cougar is superior to the silver fox, apparently. What do you do when your wingwoman gets ALL the attention?
At this moment, I have three vibrators sitting on my kitchen table. This isn't because I'm a sex toy whore, but simply because I got them as free samples and I have yet to move them to my bedroom — where I have three more.
When you're hard to get, we try harder. What if your guy cheated in his past relationship? It really bothers some guys if their lady has a high number. What if your lover refuses to answer when asked what his "number" is? Food is just as important to women as it is to men. Imagine that! And, six reasons black women should date outside of their ethnicity.
We've come a long way from the days of Burt Reynolds' hairy chest to what's considered sexy now. "No Shave November," this month's prostate cancer awareness campaign, which is encouraging men not to shave for the entire month, is certainly an exception to the trend!
I'm convinced that women hold secret meetings in the middle of the forest somewhere on some Harry Potter tip discussing what turns men on. The only problem is the leader of the meeting usually resembles the wicked witch of the Wild West, not only in appearance but in demeanor as well.
A new study reveals that when men see a lady who's showing a bit of flesh, their instinct immediately assumes that while she is capable of emotions, she's unable to think for herself. Scientists revealed that "the naked flesh is seen as capable of feeling and needing protection from harm."
Maybe it's because I'm a woman, but when I was recently faced with economic hardship (being a recent college graduate with no job), the last thing I could think about was knocking boots.
An affair can forever change a relationship. Sometimes, the dominos stood lined up for a while, ready to fall, and other times, the woman wronged — a wife, girlfriend, fiancee — never had a clue until she's met with a tearful confession or discovers an earring that's not hers.
A parachuting porn. Is it really a big deal when guys watch porn? What we can learn from guys who are terrible with women. How to wallow in breakup pain without letting it devour you. Do you have to marry her to let her know you're committed? How to keep a fellow's interest. The grand spectrum of infidelity. Five role-playing scenarios that aren't completely cliche. A few FYIs for guys on getting things right in the bedroom. And a vibe that's powered by Google.
There are some truths to the age-old adage, "blondes have more fun." Studies have shown that the lighter-haired women of the world are often rated as more attracted, younger and healthier looking than brunettes. Blondes also tend to earn more money and marry richer.
