30 Manly Things We Love

Holy crap, we’re in the middle of a crisis, y’all! Manliness is under attack! According to way too many articles to count in the last few months, men have turned into big, fat, commitment-phobic pansy asses. In an essay (via Jezebel) featured in an upcoming book about conservatism, Proud to be Right, Katherine Miller writes:

America’s elite has a problem. It’s skinny jeans and scarves, it’s Bama bangs and pants with tiny, tiny embroidered lobsters, it’s Michael Cera, it’s guys who compliment a girl’s dress by brand, it’s guys who don’t know who bats fourth for the Yankees. Between the hipsters and the fratstars, American intellectual men under the age of twenty-five have lost track of acting like Men — and these are our future leaders. We have no John Wayne, no Clint Eastwood. And girls? Girls hate it.

Look, I’m not going to argue with the fact that I’ve been disappointed by many of the men I’ve dated over the last few years, who seemed to lack backbone, common courtesy, and resourcefulness, three attributes, by the way, that I like seeing in other women as well. But this idea that dudes wearing scarves is a sign that manliness has gone the way of the dinosaurs? I don’t buy it. After the jump, 30 manly things I love that, as far as I can tell, haven’t gone anywhere. Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: Regular Men Don’t Wear Skinny Jeans

I can’t wear skinny jeans, because I have beefy man legs, mighty logs of muscle and sinew, the end product of hundreds of thousands of years of evolution. Ancient man spent his days running from prehistoric beasts, jumping with simian fury and squatting around the fire. Here’s a short list of the men who can wear skinny jeans: Iggy Pop, The Pumpkin King, moody beanpoles with eating disorders and those with unusually narrow pelvises. If you own and wear a cape or a top hat, you can wear skinny jeans. If you need skin-tight pants that hug your hips, then do as Batman does and wear tights. Regular men should not wear skinny jeans.

Welcome to “Things In His House That Make Me Sad,” a regular series from the blog Shmitten Kitten that we’ll be featuring on The Frisky, about the stuff seen in so many guys’ apartments that just make you shake your head and sigh.

There are several things in his house that I want nothing to do with. I’d rather kiss a cockroach then step foot in his musty basement. I’d rather eat a bowl of scabs than smell the inside of his microwave. But, what really sends chills down my spine is stepping foot outside onto his neglected backyard patio. Keep reading »

Things In His House That Make Me Sad: His Lone, Off-Brand Cotton Swab

Welcome to “Things In His House That Make Me Sad,” a regular series from the blog Shmitten Kitten that we’ll be featuring on The Frisky, about the stuff seen in so many guys’ apartments that just make you shake your head and sigh.

When I asked him for a Q-tip, he said, “Sorry, babe. I don’t have any.” Frankly, a bathroom without Q-tips is a bathroom I don’t wanna be in. I have needs that can only be met with a firm stick with cotton tightly wound on both sides. I have eyeliner to correct. I have mascara smeared under my eyebrow I have to wipe away. I have an itch in my ear THAT NEEDS TO BE SCRATCHED. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Gives Dating Advice For Dudes

I’m a guy who has been dating online for a year and a half with very limited success. Aside from one two-month relationship, the process has been a total failure. I’m an only child from a family that never talked about sex or dating, so it’s no surprise that romance is the only area of my life in which I’m painfully shy. In fact, most of what I’ve learned about “what women want” is from female friends who tell me about getting hit on by creepy guys. As a result, I’m overcautious about compliments and physical contact to avoid being one of those creeps. Second dates aren’t any better, and by then even I know that I’m coming off as cold. So, Wendy, how much complimenting should a guy do on a first date? How do you casually touch on a first date, or is that creepy? Do women expect a goodnight kiss after a first online date (assuming it went well), or is a friendly hug the standard until date number two? I know that I can’t read my dates’ minds, but nobody taught me the basic etiquette and I feel like I’ve been very withdrawn as a result. Heck, I’ve avoided asking girls out again because I’m so afraid of getting slapped for trying to kiss them at the end! — Walking on Eggshells
