The Salty Dog is a blend of sweet, tangy, and salty flavors all in one drink. Yes, it’s pink, but it’s only grapefruit juice, so I wouldn’t consider it “fruity” enough to break a Man Law. It’s easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, so if you are looking for a quick fix after a hard day’s work, the Salty Dog is the way to go. Ingredients: 1 Tbsp Sugar 1 Tbsp Salt 2 Parts Vodka 1 Part Grapefruit Juice 1 Lime Wedge Mixture: Use a small saucer and mix sugar and salt together. Take the lime wedge and wet the lip of cocktail glass and rim with sugar/salt mixture. Fill the glass with ice and pour vodka. Pour grapefruit juice. Place lime wedge on glass. Enjoy!
It’s really sad when I hear young men claim that they do certain things in order to get women. Listen hard enough and it starts to look like their entire lot in life is to get women and nothing else. The greatest secret ever revealed to man is that the more we put into ourselves and into our quality of life the more a woman will want to be a part of it. This is not an excuse to go and make it about women again by saying “I want to be a winner in life so that women will like me”, no it is to enjoy all of the pleasures of life (including the love of a woman) without enslaving oneself to the prospect. Be about more than sex and the chance at it, because this is how you will survive this world of overly apologetic masculinity. If you aim to get a raise… [Read more]
“Dear Dragon, I read your article on “ride-or-die” chicks and related to the post in a very personal way. My boyfriend and I have been together for 5 years and have a home and a beautiful baby girl together. The problem is that I am constantly finding him talking to other women… I know that he has cheated on me, but it’s hard to catch. When he leaves I have no idea if he’s telling the truth or not, I am 21 and he is 22, and I want to know if I am wasting my time. I am definitely that R.O.D. chick for him but will he realize that I put a lot of work into us and settle down? Why does he keep doing this stuff when I literally beg him not to and it’s the only thing I ask of him? I’ve EARNED that much. Is he just greedy? Is it too… [Read more]
Do you have a hairy chest? Well someone has a problem with it; bare chest – well someone else has a problem with it. I get confused with the opinions that I see in articles, interviews and random comments where a man’s chest is concerned and it makes me wonder why everyone has something to say about a man’s chest hair. I recently read an article online where the author was making a case for men being objectified (yup you read that correctly), and the signs to look for to determine whether a man was being made into a piece of meat, or a human being. The conclusion he came up with was in whether or not the man’s chest is shaved. The point was that bodybuilders, models, and workout enthusiasts tend to shave and are normally the ones being shown in magazines for their admirers to drool over. Still this flawed notion (because it… [Read more]
Guilty. Guilty of the first degree murder charge, as she brutally slayed her former boyfriend, Travis Alexander, by stabbing him 28 times (mostly in the back), slashing his throat from ear to ear, and shooting him once in the temple with a .25 caliber gun. She then dragged his body to his bathroom shower, placed him in it, and left the house after locking the bedroom door. He was lying there dead and she was long gone for five days before anyone found him. What would make a woman go to such lengths to end a man’s life? As one of the people who had the opportunity to watch the trial from day to day, it was clear to me that she is bat shit crazy, yet she also suffered from the same ailment that a lot of young women suffer from. She caught hard feelings for a man who wanted nothing more than her… [Read more]
Recently I went with a few friends to check out my favorite Marvel Superhero do his thing in Iron Man 3 – I won’t lie, the movie lover in me enjoyed it… It was a nice love story. I got so caught up in the whirlwind of Pepper and Tony’s love that I didn’t realize how far the Iron Man himself had swayed from the one I grew up with. The original Iron Man was created for a specific reason–like most super heroes that helped to push war propaganda–but to the kids buying and reading the comic books he was something to look up to. Tony Stark may have had an invincible suit of armor at his disposal but he was one of the most vulnerable heroes of the Avengers. His injured heart that was ravaged with shrapnel was spared due to friendship and ingenuity. His fight with alcoholism and depression, womanizing playboy ways, and… [Read more]
Is marriage the gold standard that all couples are meant to reach in their relationship? If we do not have a diamond ring and wedding bands circling the third finger of our left hand, a home with a picket fence and children are we missing the mark somehow? Speaking strictly from my own experiences of dating, love and marriage – I don’t think so. Some research has shown that cohabitation is a sort of illusion of a trial marriage type of thing. And that is only correct if we are assuming that marriage is the end goal. And also assuming that marriage equals commitment; and sadly to say that when we have a human factor involved – there is no guaranteed commitment. To be clear, I am not anti-marriage but I am also not pro-marriage; I am in a committed relationship with my partner and we are cohabitating prior to our engagement. According to research… [Read more]
I’m guilty as hell of being one of those giants who refused to date elf-types for fear of the pedophile suspicions or just the sheer weirdness of the height difference – go ahead and hate me. I’ve been 6’2” for an extremely long time and it took me an equally long time to get over my phobia of short women. Men get discriminated against daily for their height by women who find no issue in voicing their opinion in extremely harsh and ugly ways. I guess that we are a race of human beings who love giants because on either side of the gender line if you hover lower than 5’3” there is an instant problem with it. Consider the excuses we make when it comes to dating someone shorter: Men – “She looks like she’s 12”, Women – “I can’t wear heels with him or we look crazy”. One buddy of mine said that… [Read more]
