So I have heard this opinion more than once on blogs – usually of course from married guy or bitter single chick. While I can see some merit in the serial dater turned husband of the year giving advice, I can’t accept it as a blanket statement. Why would a guy who got married at 18-19 and has only been with his wife be a better dating coach than the guy with a book full of numbers and constant booty floating in and out of his bedroom? Look, while long-term marriage guy can tell me how to keep a woman, I wouldn’t look to him to tell me how to get her in the first place. The dating game can be pretty dynamic so advice should always be taken with a grain of salt. Still when it comes to who tells you what then consider… [Read more]

Seriously, most guys aren’t alphas so the promise of sex from an attractive female will keep a dude around longer than he cares to admit. Young guys will lie and tell their peers that they “already hit it” or will keep her a secret until they finally do. This is due to guys not wanting to seem like suckers or weaklings for not being able to wrap it up in a couple weeks. There are guys out there who have gone a month, 2 months and even a year. Let’s not even talk about the guy who doesn’t have any male friends, he’ll go for a celibate chick and deal with it. See for every ideal there is an ugly reality. On this site we broke down males into 3 categories: Hunter, Member of the Tribe and Sloth – renamed as Alpha, Beta and Omega…. [Read more]

Newcomers to the gym experience and fitness lifestyle let me welcome you on the Road of Kings. While many fail and few maintain, it is a golden road of treasures and pleasures though the rules be strict and many. Don’t worry I won’t be writing like this the entire time; what I want to say however is that the gym is a monkey see, monkey do environment and it is of much importance that you follow the right monkeys and not adapt the bad habits from the gorillas. Below you will find a list of things that most gym rats will agree is both annoying and selfish when practiced by other gym goers.

Editor’s Note: In my rounds I tend to come across many blogs that offer up gems that can help us all do better int he quest of becoming a modern gentleman. Diggame of “From Ashy to Classy” is a man on the same quest who shared his series The Marcus Graham Chronicles on another site and I asked him to bring it here, to the Hall so that you too can enjoy it.

One of the toughest things to do when you’re an entrepreneur is to stay motivated for growth. You got out, things are going well and a few years down the line you realize that you have settled without even realizing it. Your friends laud you as being “the man”, your bills are getting paid and you even have a little put to the side for whatever. But in the beginning you imagined your business to be much more than it is right now and even when you remind yourself of this you are still just going through the motions at the end of the day. Having gone through this, I want to share 4 of the best tips I know to keep you hungry and eventually off of that plateau of self-employment: 1. Keep Similar Company (Entrepreneurs need enterprising friends) When I was employed, a… [Read more]

Editor’s Note: This is probably the most controversial topic I have touched on in my writing here on The Hall. I reread it days after writing and found that it is 100% Greg Dragon in terms of being blunt, offensive and harsh. I did not and will not be changing what I have written to make it palatable because it is honest, and I feel that me being less than honest is a disservice to both you my readers and myself the bleeding heart. This is an entry into the mind of someone who is extremely bitter with religion in general and I hope you take something away from it other than a wont to argue with me. Thanks as always for allowing me to express myself, it is a freedom I don’t take for granted. – G.Dragon To be honest I never had it,… [Read more]

All for the sake of marriage would you be okay with learning that your mate settled for you? This is a real question and I don’t mean the “we were dating and I eventually fell in love” sort of settling but more along the lines of “I have been a freak for a few years and this guy has his head screwed on straight so I am ready to be a wife/mom with someone and it may as well be him” kind of settling. As a man or woman, would the realization of this make you upset or is it all about companionship? I personally know of 3 marriages that were spawned from one person settling versus the love thing that Hollywood makes it out to be. One was based on the woman being a floozy, but having above average beauty landed her an enterprising… [Read more]

When one thinks of a sexy part of the female anatomy there are items that immediately spring to mind.  Indeed, you know something is of great importance when it’s compared to a fruit or vegetable.  Melons anyone?  Try a slice of Onion Booty?  Unfortunately, there is one area on the vast ocean that is the female body that is often overlooked but commands equal respect:  Venus Dimples aka Dimples of Venus aka Ass Dimples.
