Lately, the word “bromance” has been getting some tremendous mileage. You see it on movie posters, on TV, and in passing conversation. In general, the word refers to two heterosexual guys who have enough social interaction that they’re basically dating, only without the sex. Get it? BRO-mance instead of romance! Yeah, we know. It’s an annoying word. Unfortunately, it’s probably not going anywhere soon. Keep reading »
Men and women behave differently when shopping for clothes. Women tend to take longer than men when picking out their wardrobes. I know, you’ve never heard this before. However, nobody really addresses the male thought process when shopping. It’s different from the way women think, sometimes bizarrely so. Here’s a look at what guys think during their clothes shopping excursions. Keep reading »
One of the most popular sports in the world is professional wrestling — if you count it as a sport, of course. The overwhelmingly male audience absolutely loves watching dudes in leotards beat each other up in matches with pre-determined outcomes.
I’ve been a fan of professional wrestling since I was a young kid. At the time, professional wrestling was a pretty pure, fun sport with a mainly juvenile audience. Over time, it’s switched to become more adult-oriented, then back again, and it has picked up a lot of viewers in the 20 to 30 age group. However, as wrestling fans know, people look down on you when you enjoy a good WWE show or two-a-week, and many women in particular seem to malign wrestling as a form of entertainment.
It’s hard for many women to understand this, but professional wrestling is popular with men because it’s awesome fun. Yes, it’s fake. Yes, it looks incredibly homosexual. It’s still awesome.
In order to adequately explain why men love professional wrestling, here’s a look at the main criticisms of the sport.

Every year, countless articles decry men for our unwavering desire to date supermodels. Real women don’t look like that, we’re told, and there’s nothing wrong with a few extra pounds.
The thing is, most men agree with that statement. If we didn’t, the human race might be in a bit of trouble. Still, magazines, TV shows, and movies show women with perfect (as in emaciated) figures, big (as in back-breaking) breasts, and ideal (surgery-enhanced) faces, and real-looking women ask: Do guys really want to date models?

Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is treated as a woman’s holiday. This sexist interpretation is due to the whole love-is-for-the-ladies thing that has been a part of American culture for the last hundred years or so. The classic image of the holiday is a man showing up on a woman’s doorstep with flowers and candy, and nearly every Valentine’s Day product out there is marketed toward men on the assumption that they’re the ones doing the buying around the 14th.
At its heart, though, Valentine’s Day is meant for couples, and last time we checked there were two people in a couple (sometimes three, depending on the laws in your state). Men should really enjoy the holiday as much as women, but for whatever reason, they tend to turn against it. Maybe it’s the actual date that makes us so anti-Valentine’s Day.
Here’s a look at an ideal way to spend Valentine’s Day, from a man’s perspective. Keep reading »
When Feb. 14 looms over us like the grim specter of Death itself, men react in a rational way: We do everything that we possibly can to find someone to date us as soon as possible. Regardless of whether we like, dislike, or want to kill a person, we’ll go out with her rather than spend Valentine’s Day alone.
Sure, most of us are aware that it’s a corporate holiday designed to sap money from consumer pockets into the pockets of the greeting card, flower, and pornography industries. However, its secondary function is to make a good half of society feel lonely and depressed for not joining in. Guys are hit pretty hard. Here’s how our average Valentine’s Day goes when we’re single … Keep reading »
