10 Dumb Lies Women Tell Men

“Nothing’s wrong.” “It’s OK you forgot.” “I’m cool with you hitting up a strip club.” Lies. All lies.

If you have any inclination that something might be wrong, there probably is. It’s definitely not OK that you forgot, be it her birthday, or dinner plans with that couple you loathe, but especially her birthday. And strip clubs? *snorts* Good luck with that one, buddy.

You men are pretty simple for the most part (beer, babes, bathroom break, repeat), but we women can be funny creatures. Sometimes we say what we mean, sometimes we lie, and we always want you to read our minds. I’m not saying it’s fair; it’s not. But it is often a reality. Lucky for you, we unveil the truth to many of these fibs right here in our list of 10 dumb lies women tell menRead more…

If you’re reading this and you’re in denial that you are a Grade-A Facebook stalker or you think you’re a Facebook stalker and just want it confirmed, check out these five signs that you are a certified NORMAL PERSON BECAUSE WE ALL DO IT. Keep reading »

Christopher Hitchens: Can You Predict A Successful Marriage?

Whether he’s the one can’t be known, argued twice-married writer, Christopher Hitchens. Hitchens passed away this week at the age of 62.

There are some lessons that can’t be transmitted down the generations, and the most conspicuous of these is the choice of your life partner.

There’s no damn heritability. In fact, this is a case where you can’t even profit by other people’s mistakes. Which of us has not seen a friend whose parents didn’t get along make the very same blunder? Which of us has not seen a person from a happy family ignore her mother’s fine example? Which of us has not known a couple, contentedly living in sin, fly apart as soon as they tie the legal knot? All I have learned, from absorbing moisture on both shoulders, is that what you find out about others is almost never what you would have expected. And as for yourself… Keep reading »

It’s holiday time and you know what that means: home-wreckers are sharpening their claws and any other WMD (weapon of marriage destruction) that they can. Hey, it’s the loneliest time of year – but that doesn’t mean she can’t use your guy to keep her warm through January!

Seriously, it’s no coincidence that this time of year can prove to be dangerous to your relationship if you’re not mindful of potential threats to it. Experts talk about December as a toxic time of year for monogamous relationships and the milquetoast men behind them. “The holidays are the time when ‘husband stealers’ go on the prowl — especially at office parties,” says Dr. Carole Lieberman, a psychiatrist at UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Institute who’s written the book on home-wreckers – literally. Her latest award-winning manifesto, Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them & How Good Girls Can Learn Their Secrets, details 12 types of “bad girls,” including the “husband stealer” aka the home-wrecker.

So, how can you tell if one of these home-wrecking types has your relationship in her crosshairs and, if so, that your man has let it happen? Here are eight signs you’ve been home-wrecked, after the jump! Keep reading »
