I’ve been dating this guy for a while now and last night he called me while he was with his friends. Our conversation was normal until he suddenly asked, “Did you hook up with one of my friends?” I tried to deny it, but after he asked me several times, I just finally said “Yes.” It happened a long time ago before I even met my boyfriend. I didn’t tell him because I even forgot I had hooked up with his friend. It was that meaningless and suck-ish. He was completely upset, especially since he was out with that specific friend. He kept telling me he had a right to know about it and that he was so hurt. All I want to know is, should I have told him about it? And will he eventually get over it? – J.
Oh, the fragile male ego.
First things first. You were under no obligation to tell this guy you hooked up with his friend, unless you were asked point-blank. The “prior relationships” conversation is an emotional minefield, and if either (or both) of you have avoided that whole subject during your relationship, I 100 percent support that choice. Of course, he’s freaking out and being a bit ridiculous. Keep reading »
The online dating scene is rough. Sure, it’s a great way to meet people, but we use the term “people” loosely, as some of the individuals we’ve come in contact with still seem to be in their primitive forms. Obviously, first impressions count … but not to these idiots.

Tip: Don’t do anything that this doucher does. NOTHING. Not only does this self-proclaimed “player” list his profession as “lying and cheating on my wife,” but he tells us he’s not ambitious, calls himself a “narcissistic ass,” and goes on to explain that he lies to women to sleep with them before running home to his wife of only five weeks. If you ask us, it sounds like this guy is the perfect candidate for herpes … and maybe a marketing class. Keep reading »
A couple weeks ago we introduced you to the “anti-thigh gap jeans,” made specifically for those of us who have a little more thigh meat than traditional skinny jeans allow for. Today, we’d like to introduce you to another specialty fit denim innovation, but this one is for men who have a little extra man meat. The jeans are called Slimbs. Their mantra? “Slim fit jeans that aren’t a pain to your manhood.” While that tagline (not to mention the screenshot of their promotional video) might make you laugh, the jeans are far from gimmicky. Slimbs are high quality (each pair even comes with a guaranteed repair service), American-made, ethically manufactured, stylish, and affordable. No wonder they’ve almost doubled their fundraising goal on Kickstarter already. Check out the video above for more info, and let your balls breathe a sigh of relief for the roomier digs they’ll be enjoying soon. [Kickstarter]
And then promptly deleted it, but not before thousands of people, including myself, took a screenshot. The internet never forgets, Franco. (“Jump rope”? Puh-lease.)
Contrary to popular belief, Tim McGraw is more than just sex on a stick. In his 24-year career as one of country music’s greatest singers, he’s racked up three Grammys, 14 ACM Awards, 11 CMA Awards, 10 American Music Awards, 3 People’s Choice Awards, and the prestigious Katie And Winona Award For Country Music DILF of the Year (spoiler alert: he ties with Luke Bryan every year). He’s also a father of three girls, married to Faith Hill, son of the late Tug McGraw, and the hottest man to wear a cowboy hat since … ever. To pay tribute to Tim on his 47th birthday(!) we’re taking a look at 15 of his classic song lyrics that have taught us valuable life lessons while we belted them out in the car. Turns out this country bad boy is full of fortune cookie-worthy wisdom! Keep reading »
I have been talking to a guy since February (I’ve known him for over a year). He texts me sweet messages and basically texts me all day long every single day. We have hung out a few times and we did get intimate, as in, we went all the way.
I have asked him what I mean to him but he completely dodged the question yet continues to text me every day. Another issue is that he’s busy almost every single weekend and we don’t see each other too often.
Am I rushing this as we have only been talking for about two months? Should I just keep it cool for a little bit? I don’t want to scare him off, but I don’t know how to proceed. I do like him and can potentially see myself with him. Help! – Nuthin’ But A Text Thing
You’ve been talking for “only” two months? What era do you live in, where two months is NOT a long time? Was your last boyfriend a 19th century squire, wooing you only by pony express mail?
You two have been hanging out way long enough to know the truth: he’s not that interested. I’m sorry. That hurts. But it’s the truth. Keep reading »
The internet is bursting with parodies of Dove’s Real Beauty ads, and if you ask me, there can never be too many. This one actually came out a year ago, but I just stumbled upon it, and it’s too good not to share. The idea behind it is simple: what if the forensic artist in Dove’s famous “Sketches” ad was enlisted to help men see the real beauty of … their ballsacks? Just watch. [YouTube]
From what I can tell, this moment was the only thing worth watching — over and over and over and over again — at last night’s MTV Movie Awards. Zac Efron can get it.
“I have always been frightened with men. To the point where I couldn’t go into a gym because of the testosterone and I felt weak. I don’t feel very manly. I don’t feel rugged and strong and capable in real life, not how i imagine a man ought to be. So I seek it, to mimic it and maybe understand it, or maybe to draw it into my own reality. People who are scary, they terrify me, but I can imitate them. I’m not a fighter. I’m a petite little bourgeosis boy from London. I don’t fight, I mimic.”
Tom Hardy may not feel very manly, but he sure as shit looks it on the cover of Esquire. There’s something especially sexy about a guy who looks like he’s punched a few teeth in, but actually wouldn’t hurt a fly. Whatever Tom Hardy is– rugged and burly or gentle and sweet — I like what he’s serving up. Yum yum, gimme some. [Dlisted]
As a single female, I’m all too familiar with the dating scene and the post-traumatic stress often endured after a night out at the bar. “We met online,” is the new “we met at a bar,” and there’s a reason for that: far too many evenings are spent swatting away deadbeats and touchy-feely drunk dudes. So before you head out to your favorite pub, be prepared to get hit on by one of these 12 types of guys. Keep reading »
