I once stalked a woman I had gone on one date with the old-fashioned way – I stared at her from a distance in a public park. Judge me if you must, but as the ancient rhyme goes: I am mirrored underwear, you are laser gun. Whatever you say reflects off of me and shoots you in the face.

A good, long chat between two girlfriends is like sex is to a couple, and if a relationship doesn’t get fed, it’s going to starve to death.
But the truth is, these days I feel like my closest ladies are starving me and I’m starving them. I’m not sure whether to blame our busy lives or the fact that technology has zapped all the intimacy out of communication and also keeps us too busy for the real thing. I’m talking to you, Facebook.

It sounds like Clive Worth fancies himself a modern day Casanova. He claims to have bedded more than 1,500 women thanks to the help of online dating and social networking sites.

So now the site is banning his account. Worth says he doesn’t see the reason why the site is not allowing him access, but is working around the ban by creating a disguise profile as a woman. What an ingenious man! Keep reading »
