[Reese Witherspoon, her ex Ryan Phillippe, and Ryan's girlfriend Abbie Cornish]
Thinking about Friday’s slideshow of celebrities and their “types”, I got to thinking about the guys on my IM and whether they stuck with the same type of gal, either in relationships or casual hookups. Previous to the man-friend, I sort of went for emotional musician/writer types — and still occasionally get a little fire in my belly for guys like them (sorry honey!) — but discovered that true love comes when you open your mind to someone outside your usual desires (and other such Hallmark sentiments). Additionally, I was curious what types of women the average guy would cheat with — someone similar to his girlfriend, or her complete opposite in personality and looks?

Recently, I rambled about The Big Switcheroo – men and women adopting each other’s worst gender behaviors. The diatribe was equal parts self-indulgence and genuine confusion. Are men really becoming needy, emotional leeches and women emotionally void predators? I suppose no one said the collective lurch towards equality was going to be pretty. And I’d like to add that it seems no one is really having any fun. It’s never fun being someone who you’re not.
But enough Danny Downer. Keep reading »
On Friday, we heard that Reggie Bush wants Kim Kardashian to lose weight because she has too much junk in the trunk. It seems a trend is developing…either that or men are losing their dang minds. Chris Brown reportedly told Rihanna to stop wearing revealing outfits. Apparently, he is worried her clothing will attract too many male admirers. But isn’t that the point? Let’s be honest, the whole appeal of Rihanna is her image. [Her songs are pretty catchy too! -- Ed.] Young women want to copy her style, and young men want her on their arm. If you take away the racy stage costumes, what is left besides a pretty face? Rihanna, who has not confirmed her relationship with Chris, should get herself a more mature man who is more trusting and actually appreciates the work she puts into her look. [China Daily]
But all this got us thinking…would the guys on our IM ever be so judgmental of their girlfriends’ fashion choices? Amelia finds out, after the jump… Keep reading »
So, one of the gossip items making the rounds today is that Jake Gyllenhaal has to live by all sorts of CUH-RAZY rules now that he is living with Reese Witherspoon and her kids. Stuff like not putting his feet on the coffee table and being openly communicative all the time. The jist of the story is that Reese is, like, a mega-dominant partner and Jake’s got to be submissive — and that he likes it that way. But it got me thinking about the dudes on my IM and whether they play the role of dominant or submissive in their relationships — in and out of the bedroom. Their responses and a tangent about gender roles, after the jump… Keep reading »
Women are emotionally-vacant pigs and men are emotionally-unstable psychos.
Wait. That’s not right.
But it is in so many ways. Welcome to the new millennium, boys and girls, where gender equality means “let’s adopt the worst of each other’s stereotypes.” It’s a madcap race to the bottom rung of the sexual identity ladder. Wheee! Keep reading »
So, you know that story we’ve been chatting about lately? The one about how one in four New Yorkers with multiple partners (potentially a reflection of the rest of the country) doesn’t use condoms all the time? Well in addition to our poll(s) on the subject, I decided I wanted to pester the guys on my IM about this because I think it’s kind of easy to say to blame dudes for low condom usage — after all, they’re the ones who have to strap ‘em on either at their own discretion or because the chick they’re having sex with makes them in order to get any nookie. So do dudes leap at any opportunity to go rubber-less? Let’s find out. Keep reading »
I recently found out via Facebook that my man-friend’s ex-girlfriend (with whom I’ve had a not-so-pleasant experience) is now living in New York, working for a former employer of mine, and is connected to a good friend. This is a major bummer, as it has revived my deep-seeded urge to keep tabs on her. I think the man-friend thinks I am crazy, but I truly believe all members of the human race indulge in a little internet stalking — and to prove it, I decided to quiz the guys on my IM about their habits.

I have many girl crushes and I am always checking out other women on the street — admiring their style, whatever cool things they’re doing, etc. But I’ve often wondered if guys have the same thoughts about other dudes. So I decided to probe the minds of the guys on my IM to find out if there are guy celebrities they crush on. Their answers were so thorough, their wives/girlfriends may have reason to be jealous. Check their responses after the jump… Keep reading »
You’ve heard about the mood swings, cravings, mania, and general awfulness your wife will be “blessed” with throughout her nine-month journey to motherhood. Here are five things your parent-friends will never tell you about pregnancy, probably because they’d just assume forget about them altogether:
Miscarriage. It seems to be almost inevitable. We’re not sure of the statistics, but an unscientific survey we did of three friends showed that every woman in the world will have at least one miscarriage. As a guy, you’d think that your rub-some-dirt-on-it-and-get-back-in-the-game attitude that you learned from your high school football coach (who was banging one of your classmates by the way) would be helpful. It’s not. Let her sister/mom/friends console her because you suck at it. Meanwhile, you’ll have some extra time to create a new, winning game plan. Keep reading »
I swear, I hear the sleaziest stories from women all the time — a girl I know once told me about how a guy got up to go get a condom before they had sex, but then FAKED putting it on. How gross is that?! I like to think that the company I keep on my IM is of the kind, generous, sensitive variety, but I really do think that every guy has a sleazy side. But I don’t judge, so I decided to ask the guys on my IM what their sleaziest move has been — after all, their identities are protected and sharing their moves with womankind would be good penance. Too bad most of them are perfect little angels…or so they say. Check their responses, after the jump… Keep reading »
