Study Says Women Don’t Date Unemployed Men

As if losing your job doesn’t suck enough, a recent survey conducted by online dating site It’s Just Lunch found that 75 percent of women wouldn’t even go on a date with an unemployed man. Well, 42 percent of women wouldconsider it. But 33 percent said there was no chance, while the other 25 percent said they would go on a date with a jobless guy.

“Not having a job will definitely make it harder for men to date someone they don’t already know,” says Irene LaCota of It’s Just Lunch. “This is the rare area, compared to other topics we’ve done surveys on, where women’s old-fashioned beliefs about sex roles seem to apply.” Read more…

Reining In My Inner Whore

I was reading a post by La Petite Provocateur at ‘Singles Warehouse’ and then suddenly here I am writing a post. You see, I could relate to her story. It’s a scenario I know well and it goes as follows: girl goes out with friend, girl drinks, girl meets guy whilst tipsy, girl & guy start talking sex, make out session commences, and sparks fly. It’s an amazing feeling, being high on the flirting, and floating on sexual endorphins. Life is good and you are dead sexy!

This is exactly where, for me, that moral part of me chimes in and tells me to slow things down. I will always put the brakes on the sexy time before I’m horizontal on any surface, or vertical-look there’s no sex, okay! I enjoy a nice round of making out and the sexual tension that builds like crazy when you first meet a guy you click with. What I don’t enjoy is drunkenly falling into bed with every guy who makes my lady parts tingle. This is a personal choice and I don’t judge people who follow their bits to the bedroom but I like to be selective and sober-ish when deciding who ends up in my tunnel of love. Read more …

10 Things Men Like About Breasts

As you are well-aware, men’s love affair with the female breast goes back centuries, perhaps to the beginning of time (before chomping on the apple, Adam may not have known the significance of Eve’s frontal accoutrements, but he knew what he liked). Guys go out of their way to get a glimpse of them at every opportunity, and spend obscene amounts of hard-earned cash just to watch nubile hotties bare their bounteous assets in seedy, sweaty, prurient palaces, ironically referred to as, “gentlemen’s clubs.” Such is our complete infatuation with your blessed bosom.

But why this udder devotion? And what specifically draws us to your mellifluous mammaries? Read on as I try to offer a little insight into mans’ magnificent obsession.

1) We like how your breasts look: Contrary to what you may think, regardless of size, we find your boobs fascinating. Whether they’re large and luxurious or small and sporty, we’re hot for your hooters. And while individual men may have a preference for a particular size or shape, overwhelmingly we’re enticed by your charms, be they pendulous or pert, pouty or protuberant. Read more …

10 Worst Names A Person Can Possibly Have

We’re all guilty of it; when reading anything written about anyone, we talk about the meaning behind that person’s name. It’s because we tend to associate different names with different behaviors.

Some names are naturally “better” than other names because they are more balanced in their gifts and their challenges. Remember: all names have both an abundance of gifts and an abundance of challenges to help us improve and grow. Here are the top ten worst names to have. Cross your fingers you don’t read your own!

How To Be A Feminist Girlfriend

While we fantasize about finding the perfect feminist boyfriend, the burden of bringing feminism into a hetero relationship often lies with the lady — like so many other burdens of relationships! So here are a few ways to bring an egalitarian spirit to your coupledom:

1. Talk about “women’s” issues as if they are not “women’s” issues but “human” issues. Because, you know, they are. Who wins if we have birth control, healthy reproductive systems, and equal pay? Our guys, who get to have consequence-free sex and more money coming into the household. Read more …

10 Proud Gay & Lesbian Couples Throughout History

In honor of June being Gay Pride Month, we’re celebrating not just our favorite gay and lesbian couples since the dawn of time, but also their love for each other even when homosexuality was deemed worthy of incarceration. In their own ways — some more than others — all of these couples helped propel the gay-rights movement forward. Even if some of them weren’t on the front lines like Harvey Milk and Scott Smith, by not hiding their relationships, they proved to the world that love comes in many different forms.

Khanumhotep and Niankhkhanum: (2400 B.C., Egypt). Regarded by most historians as the first recorded gay couple, the gentlemen were manicurists of The Great House during the 5th dynasty. The king needed a shave; the fellas were there with bells on. Read more …

4 Steps To Hot Summer Sex

Grease may tell us that “Summer Lovin’” is a blast, but in reality, trying to get it on in the sweltering heat isn’t exactly super-comfortable. When the temperatures reach well into the 90′s, who even wants to have sex anyway? Most people would probably rather lay on the opposite side of the room from their partner and think about sex than actually indulge in it. Ugh, summer can be such a bummer for our sex lives.

But as animals with sex drives, it’s not always easy to keep yourself away from your instinct to mount each other, even if your air conditioner just broke and you’re pretty sure you just lost a pound of weight in sweat. If that’s the case, then do it. Just remember it could get, er, a little unpleasant. Here are some pointers:

Sweat. You will sweat. Fact. If you’re sitting in a pool of sweat, just think about how that sweat factor is going to triple or quadruple the second you start getting it on. If you’re not comfortable dripping in mass amounts of salty sweat in front of your partner, then you may want to wait until that air conditioner is fixed — or Labor Day, to make the “beast with two backs,” as Shakespeare called it.  Read more …

4 Tips For Surviving Wedding Season As A Single Gal

According to JDate’s resident dating coach Melissa Malka, “For singles, attending wedding after wedding can be a constant reminder that you’re not quite there yet.”

While we feel like we should protest, obviously there’s a lot of truth to that. Here are some tips from JDate, the Jewish online dating website, and Malka, on how to survive wedding season without making a drunken fool of yourself — or getting depressed about your single status. 

1. Start from the outside and work your way in. “I never (read: never) advise people to use their looks or appearance as the foundation for impacting their self-confidence and level of happiness, with one exception: weddings,” Malka advises. You never know who might be there (the bride’s cousin or the groom’s best friend from college perhaps?), and the wedding photos will be around forever — two very good reasons to look fabulous!

Post-Breakup Rebound? Why Men Move On So Fast

When I use the words “men” and “rebound” in the same sentence, male minds might quickly conjure up thoughts of their favorite NBA teams. Women, however, understand that I am addressing the phenomenon of rushing into a new relationship after the dissolution of an old one. And while men aren’t the only ones guilty of this relationship ricochet, they are, by far, the most-likely to engage in this particular type of reactionary behavior.

So, what causes men to so quickly move from a break-up with you to the arms of another woman? Read more …

10 Lessons Only A Slut Can Teach You

If I could have three wishes from a Genie they would be the following: Jason Giambi would happily agree to have sexwith me, drinking beer would dramatically improve my figure and the word “slut” would lose its negative connotation and become a widely accepted term of endearment far and wide. I’m pretty firm in my conviction that number twenty-three will eventually come around, but I’m afraid the other two wishes are a wee bit far-fetched. A girl can dream.

A girl can also embrace her “slut status” with grace and dignity. That’s right my friends. There are methods to the madness that is the promiscuous adult female. Sure, there are moments when she becomes completely crazy, but that’s half of the fun when you’re interacting with and living the life of a slut. Read more …
