12 Little Things Guys Do That Impress Us Big Time

I was on the subway yesterday, when a guy sitting next to me struck up conversation. He was cute enough and nice enough. I was enjoying our conversation. Across from us, a girl started to cry. Like hysterically weeping. Subway Guy leaned over to me.

“Excuse me,” he said, cutting me off in mid-sentence.

He stood up, fished around in his pocket, and pulled out some napkins. He walked straight over to the crying girl and handed them to her. This perfectly nice stranger became a super hot man in that split second. I was drooling for the rest of our ride together. Too bad he got off the train before I could get his number. But I don’t care, he left a huge impression. After the jump, some more of the little things guys do that impress the crap out of us. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I’m Not Sure I Want To Marry My Fiancé”

I’m 22 years old and my fiancé is 25. We are supposed to get married this October, but I’m having second thoughts. We’ve been together for over five years and were neighbors growing up. We both dropped out of college, but I have always held down a full-time job, whereas he got laid off and spent a whole year unemployed. I feel like I have a lot of resentment towards him because he had no excuse to not find a job. He didn’t have the ‘drive’ or ‘ambition’ that I wanted him to have. Since last June, he’s been a truck driver, a job that requires him to be gone sometimes a week at a time or longer with only one or two days home. Also, he still lives at home, and the thought of him being so dependent on his parents bothers me. A little over two years ago, he was really wanting to get married, but I kept telling him I wanted to wait until I was at least 21 so I could legally drink at our wedding. I think I was just making an excuse. He proposed after I turned 21, and some days I’m so happy to be engaged to him and some days I’m not. In addition to our other issues, our sex life is not okay. He always wants to have sex and I hardly ever do. I don’t really know why I don’t because he isn’t bad, but I just feel like I’m not attracted to him anymore. He is the only relationship I have ever been in and I don’t want to lose him but I don’t want to ‘settle’ either. I want to talk to him about it but I don’t want to hurt him. I guess now that we’re paying down payments for venues, buying a wedding gown and setting up classes with my pastor, getting married is hitting me. I don’t want to be a divorce statistic. — Cold Feet

I Went On A Blind Date With Charlie Sheen

Anna Goldfarb at the blog Shmitten Kitten has an active imagination. This post originally appeared on her blog. Enjoy!

Charlie Sheen is a nutjob so I used his real quotes and imagined we were on a blind date. Enjoy:

Me: Thanks for meeting me here. I’ve heard good things about this place.

Charlie: I’m still alive, which is pretty cool.

Me: Yeah, it is. Janet told me a lot of things about you. Most of it was good. (laughs nervously)

Charlie: I have a 10,000-year-old brain and the boogers of a seven-year-old. Keep reading »

Dater X: The 10 New Relationship Commandments

It’s been three years since I’ve uttered the phrase, “This is my boyfriend, __________.” So every time I’ve said it in the past two weeks, as the word ‘boyfriend’ passed through my lips, it felt both totally foreign and completely natural. Even though it’s a word that conjures up images of high school and “Do you like me? Check yes or no” letters, each time I say it, the word makes me feel just a little bit giddy.

I’ve been dating The Young One for six blissful weeks. Keep reading »

Guys, Don’t Date Hot Women!

Men beware. A new study says that guys should steer clear of dating a woman who is hotter than he is because the relationship has greater odds of being doomed. Why? Well, because a more beautiful woman has all the power in the relationship. If she wants to leave your ugly ass she will, whereas a woman of equal or lesser attractiveness will make due with you (presumably even if you are annoying). But the same does not apply to for a woman dating a hotter man. No issues there according to researchers. Come on! Is this study for real? It is in some alternative universe where gorgeous women don’t marry men for their money or where underwear models like to date average chicks like me. I’d be happy to live in that world. But until then, I’ll keep living in the world where people sometimes enter into relationships because they are compatible, regardless of which partner is prettier. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I’m Not Looking For Casual Sex

Right after Ex-Mr. Jessica and I broke up around New Year’s, Tom*, a friend I’ve had for about four years asked if I wanted to go down to Washington, D.C., and visit him to get my mind off the breakup. I assumed there might be an ulterior motive there, but I was in pulling-my-hair-out, “Who knows why men do anything?!” mode and wasn’t totally sure. In any case, I told Tom I was still too sad to be good company, which was true.
