Over at Asylum, the dudes are waxing on a topic we’ve covered quite a bit here at The Frisky — whether or not you should stay Facebook friends with an ex. So what’s the dude perspective? They’ve come up with 10 reasons why you should keep the lines of communication open, at least on the social networking site:
When your girlfriend gives you the dreaded “Let’s just be friends”-speech, don’t overreact. Many guys, in a fit of anger, would proceed to burn every other bridge linking he and his newly minted ex, including deleting her from his list of friends on Facebook. This course of action is a mistake. Put on your “Bruce Willis”-face and remember these 10 reasons for keeping up cyber-appearances. Whether or not you take these directives seriously is, of course, entirely up to you.

Dude site Asylum asked readers for stories of the tattoos they majorly regret and got this gem from Jessica:
I got my first tattoo when I was 16. I decided I wanted to get my boyfriend’s name on my chest, so it would always be close to my heart. I went to the first tattoo shop that was open. The woman who did it asked me to take a look at the stencil she put on me to see if I liked it. Upside-down, I thought it looked good. The actual inkjob felt like she was cutting me instead of tattooing me. I didn’t know what it was supposed to feel like, so I thought I was just being a crybaby. After I got it done, I went home and looked in the mirror. To my surprise …

We hate those people who smugly say, “I have no regrets.” If you have no regrets in life, you lack the ability to look back on the choices you’ve made, recognize mistakes, and take steps to do better in the future. We have plenty of regrets, but recognizing them doesn’t mean that we dwell on what we did wrong in the past; it just means we’re better prepared to not make the same mistakes in the future. That’s why we would never sleep with these 15 dudes again. Once was enough. Keep reading »
There is something about penis enhancement pills that just seems taboo. Almost like diet pills. You don’t want to admit to taking them because well they’re not healthy for you, and well, they’re simply for your appearance and nothing else, except your self esteem. At the spritely young age of 19, I never thought I would come in contact with penis enhancement pills, unless it was a commercial for viagra, in which I simply giggled and say “thank goodness my man doesn’t need that”. Then I met him.
I was dating a guy who was on the Football team in college. He had a body that looked like it was straight out of Playgirl, big blue eyes and a sweet personality; not to mention he was a country boy, accent and all, the only thing missing was a pair of overalls and cowboy hat. I thought, could he get any hotter? While I hate to admit he wasn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer, he was fun for the time being. We were dating for about a month and decided to have sex. He wasn’t the greatest kisser, but when I saw what he was packing that did not matter. Let me tell you about his penis … Keep reading »
