Did Chivalry Kill Feminism?

In the 1950s, the rules of dating etiquette were clearer. A man knew it was not only acceptable but expected for him to open the door for his date, pull out her chair and pay for the meal. These days, the line between appreciated chivalrous acts and condescending behaviors is fuzzy at best. The feminist movement brought women the right to vote and earn equal pay, but it sure made the practice of dating more confusing in the process. It would be a dateless man indeed who didn’t acknowledge a woman’s right to make her own decisions when it comes to her life, her money, her body, and her mind — but how do you reconcile that respect with the kind of attitude a man is encouraged to project on a date?

Can You Tell How A First Date Is Going To Go In The First 3 Seconds?

How long does it take to make a first impression? 15 seconds? 7 seconds? 3 seconds? I’ve been doing some dating lately (FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, SOMEONE HELP ME), and I’ve come to the conclusion that I can tell how a date is going to go within the first three seconds. My shrink thinks this is poppycock, some fantasy of omnipotence, but what does he know? In any case, I believe — and this is the key — that if I’m totally honest with myself, I know exactly how the date will go virtually immediately: the second I set eyes on the guy.

When you go on a first date, is your first impression usually right or wrong? Keep reading »

7 Things Women Wish Men Knew

Dane Cook is one of those people I don’t like. I don’t “get” him would be a nice way of putting it. I don’t find him attractive, funny, or interesting. My best friend once forced me to watch a movie with him in it, and it was so godawful that I’ve blocked out the majority of it. If I was going to take dating advice from someone, or advice about men, or advice about anything, for that matter, it wouldn’t be from this guy. Still, Cosmo asked Cook if he would share “7 Things Men Wish Women Knew.” After the jump, let’s explore seven things women wish men knew. Keep reading »

The 10 Stupidest Mistakes Men Make With Women

Men get all kinds of dating advice — some smart, some stupid. If you’re a dude, it’s hard to know who to believe when it comes to women. Frankly, as women, we’re not even sure what we want half the time, but you knew that already. In any case, sometimes it’s easier for us to say what we don’t want. So if you don’t want to send a woman screaming in the opposite direction, don’t commit a single one of the stupidest mistakes you can make when you’re trying to get with one of us. Keep reading »

The 5 Stages Of Dealing With Getting Stood Up

Nobody likes to get stood up! But it does happen. And if you date long enough, it’s bound to happen. It’s so embarrassing. You get left at a restaurant, the dude never shows, the man of your dreams just doesn’t call. No matter what the situation is, here are the five stages of dealing with a dating no-show.

I Like Jerks

I liked jerks. No, I loved them, but now, looking back, I realize it wasn’t just that. For the most part, every man who failed to call me was capable of calling someone else, and at a certain point, I had to face the fact that it wasn’t just them, it was me. I begged for men to be unaccountable. I allowed them to be untrustworthy. And I expected them to leave. Read more Keep reading »

The 3-Month Rule

First thing this morning I got a text from one of my friends, the kind I get all too often. “Met my future husband last night!” My response was my standard one: “Get back to me in three months.” If I’ve learned one valuable thing from the dating whirligig I’ve been on for the last six years (give or take six months here or there), it’s that you must wait at least three months before getting excited about the long-term possibilities of a new person.
