They have an intimate knowledge of flirty, confident, suggestively withdrawn, adorable, fascinating body language. I am in awe. I wonder how they do it. In my head, I keep a growing list of things that women can do that are a mystery to me, in the hope that one day it will all make sense. One day, I will unlock their secrets. After the jump, some of the things woman do that I just don’t understand. Keep reading »

The right sentiments expressed in a sincere way can turn a guy we’ve barely noticed into someone we’d like to make the center of our universe. Don’t think we only have long memories for the things guys have said that have turned us off. Hot things men have said also live forever in our minds. No, I will never forget the guy who told me he wanted to live alone in a yurt, but when given the option, I prefer to remember the guy who told me he could listen to me talk forever because he “loved the sound of my voice.” It turned me into a goo puddle. I keep that memory in my pocket for rainy days. After the jump, a collection of the sexiest, most goo-ifying compliments we’ve ever received. Good work guys. Keep reading »

Ours is an increasingly insular society. Hop on the subway and you’ll see dozens of people plugged into their phones. Sit down in a cafeteria and you’ll observe dozens more absorbed by e-readers and magazines. Head to the mall and you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who wants to talk with, look at, or even open the door for you. And that’s fine: The people and activities we love always get prioritized above the general public.
