Honest Abe is a friend of ours who emails us his interesting observations about men, women, relationships, sex, and dating from time to time. And from time to time we will excerpt these thoughts in Mind Of Man. Hate it or love it, we’re sure it’ll really be that simple.
I had a conversation yesterday with a close friend the other day, as she was sharing with me her frustration with her boyfriend of 4 years, and his unwillingness to settle down (i.e. popping the question). Here’s the truth, as I told her, about men. Regardless of how great she is, if we’re not ready to settle down, we’re just not ready to settle down. This is why you see two great people break up, and you wonder why that had to happen. Often, it’s because we’re just not ready. Keep reading »
Cristian de la Fuente may not have won Dancing With the Stars with partner Cheryl Burke (they got third), but he ruptured his biceps performing on the show on April 28 and delayed surgery so he could compete in last night’s dance-off with Cheryl: “She’s been the best partner I could have. She’s been a real friend, not only a dance partner but a support when I really needed her.” Awww. Keep reading »
You might be wondering why we think an old guy with soup-catching facial hair is hot. Well, this isn’t any just any old guy, it’s Levi Strauss. On this day in 1873, Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis patented the process of riveting pants, and blue jeans came into our lives. If those two guys hadn’t done their thing, I would be pantless right now.

This morning Catherine and I were talking about Gossip Girl and how we find the guy who plays Dan really unattractive due to his annoying mouth and weird walk. Then we started going off about all the seemingly “hot” guys out there that everyone oohs and ahhs over that we really think are gross and came up with a short list of ones we agreed upon.
5. Orlando Bloom Have you ever seen him in Troy, that atrocious Brad Pitt movie? He plays the biggest wimpy turd. Honestly, thinking about him in the role, and how convincing he was, makes my stomach turn. Plus, look at that pube ‘stache. Barf.

On American Idol this week, David Archuleta sang Chris Brown’s “With You.” David sucked, but because he swayed back and forth without speck of dancing ability, he reminded me just how great Chris Brown is. (No, I am not saying this simply because I think Rihanna is fabulous and the two of them are clearly together.) As you can see on the June cover of Ebony, Chris has filled out nicely. And by filled out, I mean developed ridiculous muscles. Also, Chris has moves we ain’t never seen — according to a video on Ebony.com, Chris took gymnastics for four years. Hot. Keep reading to see behind-the-scenes footage from the Ebony photo shoot where Chris isn’t wearing a shirt. [Ebony.com] Keep reading »
It’s hump day and while we should be busy working, spring flings are on our minds. Boys, boys, all types of boys — it’s the stuff daydreams are made of. According to Savvy Miss, there are ten classic types of dudes that women fantasize about: the pirate, the movie star, the cowboy, the younger guy, bad boy, the musician, the foreigner, older man, the nerd, and the knight in shining armor. Classic. However, we have vivid imaginations and a few more men on our minds — so here are our Top Six Fantasy Lovers:
6. The Astronaut This voyager isn’t afraid to go deep into space. He’s half sexy pilot, half adventurous explorer and 100% irresistible in his helmet.

Like Scarlett Johansson, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton before him, Joaquin Phoenix is recording an album. The actor, who manages to make a cleft palate sexy, discovered he had a knack for singing after playing Johnny Cash in Walk The Line. He’s been workig on his record with Tim Burgess, frontman for the U.K. band the Charlatans. Buzz for Scarlett’s album is bad (Us Weekly called it a bust!), but we have a little more faith in Joaquin’s pipes. [Perez Hilton] Keep reading »
I’m so over these fools on American Idol, especially that cheeseball David Archuleta. The kid had the gall to sing Chris Brown’s awesome song “With You” on the show last night. No one made him sing it — he chose it. And it was awful, because a lily white dork like David should not be singing about “my boo”. Keep reading »
The weather is heating up and men are starting to show some serious skin — especially their firm fun-bags. Thanks to body-hugging cotton T’s and tanks, there’s less separating you from a man and his chest. While most guys have to try to avoid staring at boobs, when it comes to moobs, girls can easily get more than an eyeful and, in some cases, even a handful. From David Beckham’s pecks to Steven Tyler’s mosquito bites to Ryan Phillipe’s toned ta-ta’s, men are rackin’ it up and showin’ it off. [Note: Simon Cowell is an example of this trend gone wrong.] Keep reading »
Some people may say that Viggo Mortensen, who’s known for his roles in those boring Lord Of The Rings movies and for being director David Cronenberg’s male muse, gets a lot of crap for his facial hair choices. Even though I picked a photo of him where he is clean shaven, I admire his ability to rock the Fu Manchu and General Custer-inspired facial fuzz. I also really admired his penis’s appearance in Eastern Promises, the real reason he’s eternally hot. Keep reading »
