Anybody who’s experienced online dating knows the icky feeling of being descended on by creeps (for lack of a better word) who are more interested in getting their porno on within 10 seconds of first contacting you than learning your name. Whether these guys somehow believe this is actually a polite way to talk to people (I doubt that) or are just total assholes who enjoy sexually harassing others, the rate of unsolicited dick pics in the dating world makes it pretty clear that something’s got to give. Wyldfire, the latest dating app to hit the scene, is a network that allows women to sign up freely, but only allows guys to join if they’re invited by a woman. The idea is to create a network of guys who are lady-approved and pre-screened for the creep factor. Keep reading »
A cute guy walks up to you in a bar. He’s totally full of himself, but makes you laugh as he flexes his muscles while telling you he’s the best. This guy is a narcissist, right?
Not necessarily. Keep reading »
I love musicals.
Oh, you hate musicals? Really? I’ll get to you and your opinion in a second.
First, I’m making a public confession: I am a white, heterosexual man who loves musicals. I don’t give a shit who knows. You are not your demographic. The people who make up focus groups are demented human beings.
I eat bacon cheeseburgers. I love pranks. I watch professional wrestling. Well, maybe that last one doesn’t prove anything. Pro wrestling is just Redneck Broadway. Keep reading »
Gemini (May 21-June 20): It’s crunch time in terms of needing to commit to summer plans. There are a lot of logistics to sort out, which will be pivotal to making sure your entire summer is all fun in the sun over sad and soggy. Plus, if you don’t make those decisions now, it’ll be over before you know it. This is not the time for you to be square.
Best Lay Day: Friday, June 13
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Testing history and various other uncomfortable conversations will be front and center now. Do yourself a favor and stay on top of it, as it’ll be an eye-opening experience to get to know another side of that special someone that you didn’t expect. It could also be amazing to feel this security, but it doesn’t have to be deep either. Don’t project.

I just started reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed (yes, I have been under a rock for the past few years) and am completely swept away by it. Strayed, who’s also behind the much-adored Dear Sugar advice column at The Rumpus (which has been turned into a book called Tiny Beautiful Things, which you will read and then instantly buy for all your friends), describes tough decisions and what it is to be human in a way that nobody else quite can.
In honor of the campaign to turn one of her best Dear Sugar columns into an animation (and simply because her words never get less awesome), here are some of Strayed’s most wonderful and inspiring quotes about life, love, fear and forgiveness: Keep reading »
Kyle Jones is 31-years-old and calls himself a “cougar hunter.” However, Jones isn’t into your typical cougar, he likes them much, much, much older. Case in point–he’s dating 91-year-old Marjorie McCool and 68-year-old Anna Ronald. Yes, Jones is dating multiple older women (there’s three more), but his preference is for McCool. Watch them make out on YourTango…
I’ve been out of the country for the past two weeks, spending almost the entirety of that time in Israel. Along the way, I’ve learned some interesting things about taking an extended global trip while parenting.
Contrary to what you might think, there are some pretty sweet perks to traveling with a child. I made the trip out to Israel with just my son and while there are some challenges traveling as a solo parent, I also noticed some up sides. People tended to treat us with more patience and kindness then when I travel solo (and I do, often). We bypassed regular TSA security to go in the fast lane, where shoes blissfully remain on and you don’t need to take out laptops or toiletries. We were also allowed to board first if we wanted to, we got meals served to us earlier, and there were more smiles and less scowls from airline employees — although perhaps this is just an Air France thing? They were pushing the free booze … Keep reading »
