Dater XY: My Best Friend Is A Woman

My best friend is a woman. My best friend in college was a woman. In fact, a majority of my closest friends since college have been women. And this presents a problem in my dating life.

There isn’t one single reason why I have more female friends than male ones and if you…

Guy Talk: Why You Never Heard From Me Again After Our Amazing First Date

Think of the best first date you ever went on.

Got it? Okay, what did you do immediately afterwards?

If you’re like some women I’ve been out with, you called up your best friend and gushed all about the date. You even posted a not-so-subtle status update on Facebook. Something along the…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: What He Thinks About What You’re Reading

What you read says a lot about you — and to the dude you’re trying to date. We asked a bunch of our guy friends about what they love and loathe seeing on your bookshelves, and they had a lot to say. We’re not advocating that you alter your reading habits to make some guy…

Mind Of Man: In Defense Of Fart Jokes

There are plenty of things men don’t understand about women. Like why you insist on leaving the toilet seat down. Or buy candles that smell like food. Or give pointers on pooping etiquette. Or analyze the gender politics of bowel movements. Would somebody please explain the allure of gloomy teenage vampires dry humping? To be…

10 Signs She Doesn’t See You As More Than A Friend

We’ve all been there — majorly crushing on that chick we’re hanging out with, thinking this might actually go somewhere. And the more time we’re spending together, the more we realize how much we actually like her: how she talks, how she laughs, that she can chill with us like one of the guys.  …

Mind Of Man: I Bought A Sex Toy (Almost)

It’s amazing what a man will do when he is both horny and bored. I firmly believe all of man’s great contributions to civilization were a direct result of boredom and sexual frustration. Alexander the Great conquered the ancient world because he was bored and horny. Galileo turned his telescope to the stars because he…

6 “Psycho” Things That Women Do That Are Actually Pretty Reasonable

I know, guys. You’ve been hurt. You’ve been frustrated — terrified, even — by the behavior of some of the women you’ve been with. Some of it has been legitimately bad behavior — invasions of privacy, violence, manipulation — but rarely has it come from nowhere. Which is exactly what the label “psycho” implies.

Gained Some Holiday Weight? Good. That’s What He Wants

’Tis the season for peace, joy and weight gain. After Christmas and New Year’s, we will all jiggle a bit more. Women will feel like kicking themselves for their weight gain and will suffer from self-loathing that lasts long past the chocolate free-for-all of Easter.

What women don’t know is that many men get…

10 Stupid Things Guys Have Said To Me In Email

It’s pretty clear that when it comes to emailing, women are the superior executors of online, text-based transmissions. Leave the same medium in the hands of men, and, well, things go off the rails. Mostly, they never seem to know what to write or how to hit the right tone. From far too fawning to…

Ask The Man Panel: On The Fringe

This week, in response to a reader request to have the Man Panel review “something that normal people would actually wear,” I decided to get their thoughts on this fringed shawl cardigan from Forever 21. Personally, I’m a huge fan of the current blanket sweater trend, because it’s the next best thing to cutting two…

What Girls Think About Guys Fighting

Asylum goes deep to get the female perspective on guys beating each other up:

“Sometimes Asylum’s token girl needs a little help getting to the bottom of a weighty issue. So, she invited professional MMA fighter (and French Canadian) Georges St-Pierre to explain what women really think about fighting, MMA and sex with yourself.”…

The Top 10 Reasons Men Watch Porn

Why do men watch porn? Let’s be honest. Who the hell knows. All I know is that some guys watch it, and we, as women, are left to sit around, scratching our heads, considering their reasoning. Yes, surely, ladies watch porn, too, but I tend to think the male-er sex is a little bit more…

What Guys Do When They’re Alone On Valentine’s Day

When Feb. 14 looms over us like the grim specter of Death itself, men react in a rational way: We do everything that we possibly can to find someone to date us as soon as possible. Regardless of whether we like, dislike, or want to kill a person, we’ll go out with her rather tha…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: When Was The Last Time You Cried?

In the time I have been interviewing the guys on my IM about everything from anal sex and condom use to masturbation and cheating, they have never been as uncomfortable with a question as they were with this one. A study out of Australia says that men cry an average of six times a year,…

Mind Of Man: Dealing With Her Dad

It is not important for my girlfriend’s father to like me; we are all far too concerned in this modern age with being “liked.” There is no virtue in the pursuit of instant, superficial approval. Her father and I aren’t peers, or buddies, and we’re not dating. I’m the dude who’s nailing his little princess,…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Will You Stick Around If You Can’t Stand Her Friends?

You know what’s nice? When you meet someone and they’re awesome and you like them and they like you and BONUS, their friends RULE. And you know what sucks? The opposite of that. When the dude you’re into has friends that are just THE WORST. Still, I’ve been known to suffer through a lot of…
