I don’t go out on dates really anymore, but I always liked ones that involved food and some sort of competition that I could potentially win, like bowling or blackjack. What’s your ideal date? Keep reading »

“I think I’m too much to handle right now. There’s so much going on in my life at the moment with traveling and there’s always cameras following me — all that kind of stuff. I don’t think it’s great for dating anyone. There are guys I like to hang out with, but I like to be the girl who no one can get. I think that’s always hotter anyway. It’s much more attractive to be the person everyone talks about.” — Miley Cyrus Keep reading »

Some young man wrote Debonair Magazine about graduating from college and not being able to get any ladies in the real world.
I have been out of school for about 18 months now and I’m missing the fraternity party days and how it easy was to hook up with a girl. How do you recommend picking up a girl in a bar? I feel that women that go out often are all so full of themselves, only want a free drink, and just don`t respond to anyone unless they`re great looking. — Disgruntled
Some of the advice given is as abominable as the “problem.” After the jump is the worst of it. Keep reading »
Aww, look at the adorable way in which modern technology brings people together. This kid asked his date to prom by posting the above image on the internet and then digged it in hopes that his crush would come across it. So much more complicated than just asking, but hey, nerds like a challenge. Click here to see a larger version. [Via Boinkology] Keep reading »
The “Modern Love” column in this Sunday’s New York Times was about a woman who dates a musician who has a kid with a woman he briefly dated. The guy turns out to be a bit of a child himsef, but the whole piece got me thinking about whether I would be down for dating a dude with a kid (specifically if I didn’t have any kids of my own). I think I would be fine with it, considering I am such a sucker for the little ones, but what about you? If you were a single woman who didn’t have kids, would you date a guy who had a child of his own? [Modern Love: Was I On A Date Or Babysitting?] Keep reading »
The good news is this: the first date was a success – the quirky, out of the way Thai place he picked was charming and he paid for the dinner discreetly. He didn’t inhale beer like a frat boy on a mission from God to get drizzzunk. His listened intently to your every word, and never, ever mentioned any of his exes. The hug goodbye wasn’t awkward, in fact, the both of you simultaneously lingered for a brief, awesome moment. On your way home, as you batted away the hearts and rainbows swirling around your head like little candy-coated moons, he texts you that he had a great time and he hopes to see you soon.
Indulge me as I imagine the single word racing through your she-noggin like a unicorn galloping through a lollipop forest. That word is “ZOMG.”
But the second date looms, ladies, and it’s your date to screw up. Keep reading »
Why does that busted butter face on the second floor have a boyfriend and I don’t? Why canâ€™t beautiful and successful women seem to find love? Why canâ€™t I win an eBay auction? It all has to do with game theory. â€œStrong biddersâ€ like Cameron Diaz know they have got it going on, so they hold out for incredible, perfect offers. While â€œweak biddersâ€ (you know who Iâ€™m talking about, cough, Brandon Davis), know theyâ€™re not strong contenders, so they tend to be super aggressive to compensate. This is how the fugs get the love — they take what they can get. So, just like in the work place, when it comes to romance, youâ€™ve got to be assertive if you want to get what you deserve. Mystery solved. [Slate] Keep reading »
In case you haven’t noticed, it’s Earth Day! I’m constantly reminded by my lovely yoga studio that I would be a better person (or at least a better person for the planet) if I went vegan and eliminated all animal products from my life. See, supposedly veganism is the best lifestyle for the planet because it’s the most energy efficient, saving a ton and a half of CO2 or equivalents per year. Additionally, vegans are always telling me that if we were to stop using all this land to raise and feed the cattle that we kill for meat, we could feed the entire world with the grain and stuff that could be produced on that land. I don’t know if that is 100% true, and I am too lazy to look it up, but I think it goes without saying that going without a big hunk of brie and a few slices of salami with your wine is a serious sacrifice. But what does the average carnivorous man think about vegans and would he ever date one, given the lifestyle adaptation that goes along with it? I polled the guys on my IM — their answers, after the jump. Keep reading »
