It seems like marriage would be the last thing on a college guy's mind, but apparently, it isn't. According to a new survey conducted by Her Campus Media, 77 percent of college guys want to get married by the time they turn 30. That means they have to meet the person they want to settle down with either while they're still in school or within a few years of graduating.
WHAT MEN THINK

If I hear another single woman tell me that men are only interested in getting laid I’m really gonna lose it. Now before I go any further I’m going to clarify and state that I understand there are some boys out there…ok lots of em…who are only interested in getting their wick dipped and could care less with whom and how it happens.
If the relationship with your guy started with a drunken hook-up, moved on to a casual but intense sexual connection, had a short pause in the land of "I love you," and is now feeling distant and uncoupled, maybe your "relationship" was never what you thought. Feelings of infatuation are strong, and can make us think, "Wow. This is real love!" But without some underpinning of compatibility, people just tend to lose interest and drift apart.
Women have always been thought of as the ones more focused on relationships, but new research suggests that the roles may actually now be reversed. In a study conducted by the dating site ItsJustLunch.com, 47 percent of men wondered whether there was relationship potential after the first date. In contrast, 50 percent of the women surveyed thought only about whether they wanted to see the man again after going out with him once.
Very few things are as confusing as the link between what we think is beautiful, our self-image and our sexuality. What each of us perceives as beautiful or sexy is as varied as what you might eat for dinner. The biggest myth about finding love is that there is some perfect set of rules that leads to success. And this is just not true. No one is perfect. Pretty people and plain people alike struggle to find love and no one is immune to fears about ending up alone.
I say this with love and good humor—men get older, they don't really grow up. Most learn how take on responsibility, be good parents and partners, and live like good citizens, but some portion of them remains in the locker room. So when I asked my dear husband his opinion on what he likes to see women wear, his immediate reply was "nothing." I wasn't surprised. After pressing him for something more helpful, he supplied this list: First, a little about "nothing." Men worry far less about the appearance of their middle-aged bodies than we do about ours. We're more inclined to cover up what we think is less than perfect, but they don't see us nearly as critically as we see ourselves. We may see a tummy and thighs we wish were firmer, but they see a naked woman that they're crazy about. As long as they still like to look, there's a live spark in there. So stoke it!

Women are fabulous, women are unique and women are beautiful. Some are confident, some are strong, some are shy and some are unsure of themselves. We all have something to offer and we all have great qualities. But when it comes to dating and getting into a relationship, there are certain attributes and qualities that are more sought after than others and some that men will absolutely try to avoid. Here are five “types” of women that have men running in the other direction.
If you see any of these six warning signs in your relationship, you may need to jump ship. If you see any of these six warning signs in your relationship, you may need to jump ship. Having collected relationship red flag stories from thousands of women, we've read some pretty unbelievable accounts of men's not-so-nice (to put it lightly) behavior. We've also noticed somewhat of a pattern: Certain red flags—warning signs we define as indications that there might be an underlying issue in your relationship—kept appearing on our radar.
Last week's Dude's List was all about why he likes to be a him rather than a her. However, I not so subtly hinted in that article that every advantage reflects a disadvantage, every strength hides a weakness, and so, this Dude's List I turn the tables on the boys. This time I go over the top dozen reasons you've got it over us.
When you meet a new man you like, it’s tempting to think you need to actively do something to show him why he should be attracted to you and interested in you. You might think you need to show him what a great cook you are by making him a meal or helping him with a problem so that he sees that you’d make a good partner.
I'm sure you've been in a relationship with a man who started out doing all kinds of things to surprise you, like coming up with plans and showing you how much he cared...and then he stopped. And I'm also sure that once he no longer did these unexpected things for you, it made you lose "that loving feeling" that used to drive you wild with excitement to see him and be with him. Well, the reality is that men often experience this same kind of thing with women. When a relationship starts to get more comfortable, more predictable, and has more routines in it, the kind of intense passion that a man once felt can sometimes fizzle out. But what fizzles out isn't just about the physical part of the relationship; it has to do with something I call "emotional attraction".
