I have a phobia of the phone, don’t have time to write lengthy emails, and my handwriting is so out of practice that signing my rent check each month feels like a chore, so Instant Messenger/GChat is my preferred method of communication (followed by texting, though “in-person interaction” trumps both with certain humanoids). It allows me to keep in touch with friends and do business with colleagues, while multi-tasking on everything else I like to do. When someone tells me they don’t use IM/GChat, I kind of feel like they’re from another planet and I don’t really trust them. (No offense. I mean, IĀ stillĀ use the same AOL AIM handle I’ve had for, like, a decade, even though I’ve never had an AOL email address. So the rest of you, join me in the 1990s, please, the water is warm!)

But even those people with whom I IM/GChat on the regular manage to drive me insane sometimes. Here are four bad IM/GChat habits that makes me kind of want to block your ass. Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Breaking Wind

So, I read this quote from Eva Longoria recently, who said she never farts in front of her husband, Tony Parker. “I save it for myself. You have to keep the mystery.” Oy. To be perfectly honest, I totally fart in front of my fiance, and have farted in front of him for a very long time. In fact, I recently asked him if he remembered the first time I did fart in front of him — I think it’s an important moment in a relationship, in that it shows the depth of your comfort level with the person. Like that episode of Sex and the City when Carrie finally “does a number two” at Big’s apartment. Very momentous occasion! Anyway, he did seem to remember the generalities of the occasion and, not to brag, but he also said he wasn’t revolted by me — which probably explains why I haven’t been embarrassed enough to stop. So anyway, Eva’s comment got me thinking about what guys really think about their girlfriends/wives flatulence. Obviously, accidents happen over the course of a relationship, but do many couples actually let loose on a regular basis? Thoughts from The Hipster Guy, The Music Nerd, and The Married Guy, after the jump. Keep reading »
