Guy Talk: How Professional Women Can Objectify Men (And Why Waitresses Don’t)

Fact: women are too often judged solely on their appearance, and treated differently based on how they measure up to men’s ideas of what they should look like. This much is obvious, and I’m sure the majority of us here applaud the women who stood up and continue to stand up to this offensive treatment that reduces women to just one aspect of who they are, while ignoring their many other strengths. But—there had to be a “but”—women should acknowledge that they often do the same thing to men—not based on looks as much as on our jobs, careers, and success. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Like Dating Shorter Guys

This might surprise you, but I didn’t find out until recently that most women do not feel the same way as me when it comes to loving vertically challenged men. When most women find out about my preference for smooching shorties, it’s usually met with crinkled noses and “I could never” or “gross” or the occasional “oh, hell no!” I smile and say, “Great! That leaves more short guys for me.” And they look at me like I just recited one of Hitler’s speeches in German. Keep reading »

Why Women Prefer Bad Boys

A new study done at the University of British Columbia may explain our penchant for bad boys. No, it’s not because they treat us like crap. Phew, that theory has always really irked me. It’s all in their smile, or rather, lack thereof. Researchers found that women ranked images of men “brooding” far more sexually attractive than images of men “smiling.” Ah, but here’s the rub; men found images of women who were smiling more attractive than those who were brooding. Men and women have opposite sexual responses to smiling. Isn’t that fascinating? And so easy to fix for all parties involved. Guys (especially the nice ones) should smile less, girls (especially the serious ones) should smile more, and then we will all live happily ever after in a Utopian lovefest. Sounds plausible, right?

Guys Are More Into Our Hair Than Our Boobs


Forget about your outfit, your makeup, or your breasts. A new survey done by Pantene found that dudes are pretty much obsessed with our hair. About three-fourths of men said they notice a woman because of her locks. In fact, most men notice hair before our clothes, our legs, our makeup, or our breasts. Yup, most men would approach a girl with hot hair over a girl with hot cleave and about 60 percent of men said they prefer nice hair over a nice rack when it comes to choosing a girlfriend. Gosh, I find this so hard to believe, but that’s what the survey says. Well, girls, I guess we’d better load up on those Pantene products for healthy, shiny hair. That’s the whole point of this survey, right? To motivate us to buy Pantene. The only thing that would actually motivate me to buy Pantene is Stacy London’s commercial. She’s so cool.

How Do You Know You Really Like Someone?

One of the things I’ve been thinking about during this drinking/dating/sex sabbatical of mine is how you know you actually like someone. I’ve come to realize that in addition to being an extreme emotions junkie, I’m what Dr. Drew might call a “love-a-holic.” A motivating factor in my desire to sleep with someone is for that amazing but temporary feeling of love and desire and wholeness that washes over me when I’m in bed with them. I lovvvvve the feeling of being in love, feeling love, having a crush, etc. Looking back, I’ve felt love for people that I barely know, let alone know well enough to deduce if I actually like them. So, in the last 20 days of being sober and date/sex-free, I’ve felt the feelings of liking someone hit me and instead of obsessing over them and rolling around in that feeling of like, I’ve tried to think about why I have that feeling.

Dater X: Feeling Attracted To Someone Who Isn’t That Attractive

What I’m about to say isn’t going to make you love me. It isn’t PC, and it certainly wouldn’t get high marks from the judges in a beauty pageant question and answer round. It is shallow, and a thing that none of us are supposed to say. But it is also honest:

Looks matter to me. Sometimes a lot. Keep reading »
