Dating Detox: I Took A 3-Year Break From Men

When you hear the word “detox” all sorts of things come to mind: spas, juice fasts, colonics, rehab centers. People enter detoxification programs to rid their bodies of toxins, lose a little weight, maybe look and feel better about the damage they’ve done to their bodies. Detoxifications are done when you eat too many chips, drink too many drinks, do too many drugs. But how do you detoxify from poor love decisions? Is there a Promises out there for people who have had one toxic relationship after another? How do you take the damage done from too many bad relationships to enable a fresh start? Keep reading »

The Top Ten Things Women Shouldn’t Do In Public

Earlier this week, the good people at AskMen.com revealed their list of the “Top Ten Things Men Shouldn’t Do In Public,” which included definite no-no’s like picking their noses and peeing conspicuously, and debatable no-no’s like crying (Come on, what if his dog just died? What if he just watched “The Notebook” for the first time?). Interestingly, they said proposing to your girlfriend on a subway was a “bold” public move — something that really ought to TOP the list of forbidden public acts, if you ask me (I mean seriously, a subway? Is there a danker, drearier place on Earth to ask a woman to spend the rest of your life with you?!).

Anyway, there’s no reason men should have all the fun, so in the interest of equality we’ve got a list of our own. After the jump, the Top Ten Things Women Shouldn’t Do In Public. Keep reading »

Just Do It … For Guys

What’s this ad really about? You tell me. Copyranter reports this ad campaign was created for the German edition of Men’s Health magazine. Both of the ads feature young women exercising to the point of sweaty, dejected exhaustion. In one ad, the woman leans over the handlebars of her bicycle, out of breath. In the other ad, the woman sits on her stationary bicycle, wiped out. The ad copy reads: “IT’S ALL ABOUT MEN.” Copyranter opines: “While it’s certainly not clear, the message of the campaign appears to be ‘that’s right babes, you keep exercising you little patooties off…for us men.’” It’s hard to argue with that position. One of the female commenters chimes in: “The only reason I exercise is so I can get laid.” I’d say she’s the truthteller. What do you think? Is this misogynist marketing or the face of reality?

Friend Custody: Who Gets Whom After A Breakup?

One of the things I love about being in a relationship is that my friend circle multiplies. But what happens to those newly formed friendships when the relationship ends? For example, recently two of my friends who were in a couple broke up and it’s been awkward ever since. Where we used to all go out together once or twice a month, now I have to split time between them, and I have the nagging feeling that I’m cheating when I hang out with one and not the other. After driving myself crazy for a few weeks (Do I talk about or avoid the subject? Partake in talk about the ex or awkwardly change the subject when it comes up?), I sought some advice on dealing with the joint-friends breakup — who keeps whom? And does it really have to come down to that? Keep reading »

Against Cheating: A Man’s Perspective

I’m single, 40, and have dated more than any good man should. Add to that the fact that I love women, I love seducing, and my ego is clearly invested in the power it gives me, and something tells me I’m not the man you’d think would advocate devotion and fidelity. But the truth is, I’m a closet monogamist. It doesn’t come easily, it might not even come naturally, but at the end of the day, I think monogamy is a majesty worth fighting for. Many of the reasons are obvious—the comfort, having a good-guy reputation, the regular and maybe even condom-free sex — but there are some that might surprise you. Keep reading »

Would You Date A Man Who Wears These Shoes?

Every so often, I like to visit this website that sells some of the most extreme shoes that you have ever laid eyes on, some of which are stripper shoes, because pole dancers like their stilettos crazy. In addition to the fact that several are eight inches high and upwards, some glow in the dark, there’s ones with built-in tip jars, and a few include rubber duckies. And you thought those gold spiked Louboutins were hardcore. But it wasn’t until my most recent visit that I found the men’s section. Therein I discovered the mind-boggling pair you see here. The model is “Pimp.” Fake cheetah fur! A see-through, 3-1/2-inch, liquid-infused heel! That contains swimming plastic gold fish! I don’t think life gets any better than this. Except for maybe the elf shoes. If you showed up for a blind date, and the guy was wearing these shoes, what would you do? Keep reading »

A Man’s Take On Advice In Women’s Magazines

“Why won’t he commit?”

“Get your man to say ‘I do!’”

“Why don’t guys call when they say they will?”

Peruse any magazine rack and various Web sites and you’ll see headlines such as these splattered all over. Inside you’ll read article upon article about how women can decode, seduce, corral, turn on, and coerce men. Keep reading »

Dear Abby: I Wear Skirts. P.S. I’m A Man

We’ve written about men in skirts on the Frisky previously, but apparently the trend has it the epidemic level. One Joe in Pennsylvania wrote Dear Abby about his predilection for sporting skirts. “I’m a married man, confident in who I am, who wears skirts for comfort.” Um, OK. But why? “I feel that skirts are more comfortable than pants, which I find tight, restrictive and uncomfortable. I wear skirts around the house, when I’m out running errands and when I attend church. My clergyman has raised no objection to it.” My, what a liberal clergyman you have. Joe’s wife is supportive of his style choices, but their extended family isn’t thrilled. Abby pronounces: “As long as you have the testicular fortitude and shapely enough legs to wear skirts, then you have my blessing.” Well! Problem solved then. According to the Cut, 2009 is the year of the man-skirt. Keep reading »

Are Men Turning Into Jerks?

According to Details, decades of feminism and political correctness have turned 21st century guys into total pigs. Because they’ve been forced to play Mr. Nice Guy and suppress their baser, manlier instincts for years, today’s men are starting to revert back to some of their less politically correct, more misogynist ways. Take, for example, “Dave”: “Dave, who was in college during the P.C. era of the early nineties, is part of a generation of men who have started to wonder why they’ve been so damn well-behaved all these years — and are now letting their long-repressed roguish instincts run free.” When Dave’s not busy being married and “co-parenting” his kids, he’s sneaking off to massage parlors for “happy endings.” What it means to be a man is no longer clear, and that’s causing a return to traditionalism. (Think Don Draper incarnate.) Tired of “Yes, Dear”-ing their wives, these guys are saying to hell with all that. (Take, for example, Guy Ritchie.) So what do you think? Are men regressing into jerkhood? [Details] Keep reading »
