I have many girl crushes and I am always checking out other women on the street — admiring their style, whatever cool things they’re doing, etc. But I’ve often wondered if guys have the same thoughts about other dudes. So I decided to probe the minds of the guys on my IM to find out if there are guy celebrities they crush on. Their answers were so thorough, their wives/girlfriends may have reason to be jealous. Check their responses after the jump… Keep reading »

The second episode of Secret Diary of a Call Girl aired last night on Showtime, and Belle came out of it as a really endearing character. Basically, she goes to a sex party with a creepy, clingy guy. At the party, she meets and starts hooking up with her favorite author and a couple other people (yes, an orgy). She ditches her date, the guy who paid her to go with him to the party (he’ll get a refund, I’m sure) to go home with the author and his friend. As they’re getting into the car, she gets a bunch of messages from her family saying her sister’s having a baby. She abandons the hot author and the prospect of having an orgy, and goes straight to the hospital wearing her feather-accented outfit. I was really proud of Belle for leaving, even though her sister was pissed that she wasn’t there for the actual birth. Keep reading »
I blame Gwyneth Paltrow circa 1997 for why I do not have the balls to cut my hair. Back during my senior year of high school, when I was zitty and spectacled and decidedly not cute, I decided it would do much for my self-esteem to chop my hair off like the then-girlfriend of Brad Pitt. You remember the cut right? I think it was bigger than The Rachel. Keep reading »
I’ve never cheated on anybody, so you won’t have anybody coming out the woodwork saying that I have. Instead of worrying about career damage, I’ve dated women. All I’ve ever done was decided that I fancied somebody, and said, “Would you like to go out and get a meal somewhere?” And done so in a social setting, where other people can see you. And then maybe “Would you like to go have another meal?” Maybe did that a few times. And then, when I realized that I didn’t wanna wrong anybody by continuing, said, “I’d rather be a great friend to you than a bad boyfriend.” I swear to God, I have a really good track record! — John Mayer on being an honest man [The Telegraph, U.K.] Keep reading »
It’s sad, but true: If you’re out and about, looks are probably the most important factor when it comes to attracting people. If you see a not-so-hot guy, there’s a good chance you’re not going to go over and strike up a conversation. In the online dating world, appearances are important, but it’s often difficult to tell whether people are attractive from their pictures — strategic camera angles can do wonders. What really makes me want to get to know and meet a guy is if he gives good email, and I think they feel the same way. Keep reading »
Jenn Thompson at Mental Floss is on a roll! After yesterday’s “Origin of Wedding Traditions” article, today she’s got a follow-up on wedding laws that are still on the books. Would be guilty or not guilty of these ridiculous crimes?
1. In North Carolina, it’s against the law to check into a hotel room pretending you’re married. But what about all the harmless husband and wife role-playing games? Verdict: GUILTY.

Ayveq, a 2,700-pound Pacific walrus who lived at the New York Aquarium passed away on Sunday of a bacterial infection. Ayveq loved to whistle and flip his flippers at the glass to attract attention, but he may be best known for regularly masturbating. “Ayveq’s frequent public self-gratification made him the Coney Island institution’s singular attraction,” wrote The Brooklyn Paper. May you find a mate in heaven so you can give your fins a rest, Ayveq. [The Brooklyn Paper via NYMag.com] Keep reading »
According to an AP article, some busy singles are asking their parents to find their spouse for them. Why spend time going on endless bad dates when you can have your parents select your soulmate? Proponents of arranged marriages say the process takes the guesswork out of picking a partner, relieves the stress of having too many choices, and puts your future in the hands of those whose experience you may trust more than your own. While this way of matching people is popular among certain cultures, I can’t imagine asking my mother to find me a husband. I’d rather mess up on my own than blame my mother for picking someone I may or may not like, even if that means six months of bad dates. [AP via AM New York] Keep reading »
