According to a new study, there may be a practical way to find out if your man is going to be faithful to you … test his IQ. If you’re a wise lady, then you should be looking for a very smart man, because researchers in the U.K. have discovered that high IQ and the ability to be monogamous are related in men. Why? Because intelligent men are more evolved. Yeah, tell us something we don’t already know. The evolutionary psychologist who ran the study theorizes that the smarter a man is, the less susceptible he is to indulging in his primal urges to impregnate as many women as he can. Also it’s just straight-up smart not to piss your woman off. Does this mean we can finally stop blaming men’s libidinal urges for infidelity and sex addiction? Some men are evolved dammit … and we love them for that. [Asylum] Keep reading »
One of the best things about having mouthy friends who are in long-term relationships is that they tend to spill the beans about super-secret man tendencies that we single chicks miss out on. Like this fun tidbit I learned this weekend from a married friend of mine. She says that when her husband comes home drunk, she has to badger and force him into peeing before going to bed — otherwise, he’s been known to get up in the middle of the night, walk down the hall, and pee in the closet.

I just love starting off my day with a serious Ryan Gosling-induced girl boner. Pitchfork.com has a portion of a documentary about Gosling’s super awesome creepster doo-wop band, Dead Man’s Bones, in which my lover conducts a children’s chorus in rehearsal and on stage. While plenty of actors turned rock stars SUCK, I can say with unbiased appreciation that Dead Man’s Bones RULES super hard. Keep reading »

I was having a conversation with one of my single female friends the other day—in fact, I was having the conversation with her, since it’s one that I seem to have with all the single women I know at some point or another. We were trying to figure out what kind of guy she should go for, who would make her happy for the long haul and where she should find him.
But how can you tell who’s going to be a good guy? Beats me. Some of my best male friends, whom of course I consider to be excellent guys, have been known to just stop calling girls when they get tired of the relationship. No breakup, no explanation, no good-bye, just silence. How could they possibly do that? Keep reading »
What’s your type? Tall, dark and handsome, with a good sense of humor? Yeah, right.
According to a new poll, women may say that’s what they want, but what they really get hot for is a slightly chunky, hairy guy with a propensity to cry during movies. Or so 2,500 women told one polling firm. The data collected by OnePoll.com found that “a little stubble” is women’s number one turn-on, followed by a “geeky” personality and a hairy chest. (Gray hair and crying during movies were also among the secret peccadilloes.) Women also admitted to preferring a dude who is soft and cuddly versus one who is totally ripped.
Is your unconventional type in the list? Read more … Keep reading »
