If you are a woman that has a guy in your “back pocket” due to any number of reasons, he may become a hindrance to your love life. Many women have a guy that they want, but refuse to go their with him for one reason or another. This leads to the guy being placed in the friend-zone, or her back pocket (as we will call it here) and regulated to little more than buddy status. When you look at this woman’s list–of course she has a list–it should not be a surprise that back pocket guy encompasses much of what is on there. For a man who isn’t looking to settle down, the back pocket is nice, warm and cozy, because it can easily translate to sex with no strings attached.  It is the perfect situation for a player, especially if there are several… [Read more]

Do you have a type? I often hear people complain about the dating scene, women say there are no quality guys and the men say all the women they meet are crazy.  Have you ever heard the term history repeats itself?  Well that holds true in a lot of circumstances especially dating; men and women are attracted to potential partners that are more than likely wrong for them. People typically look for the same type of person to date; even after bad experiences they still go for the same “type” thinking that maybe this person will be different.  There is always that chance, but it is not likely.  If you continue to go after the same type of people, then you can expect to get the same results unless you catch a diamond in the rough. I have talked about this many times, the simple… [Read more]

Bars typically aren’t an environment where you can have a good conversation with a woman and get to know her.  They are typically cramped, loud, dirty, and there are 50 other dudes waiting to talk to the same girl. Some would even argue that it is one of the worst places to meet someone, typically they have been approached by 10+ guys already and the defense shield is set to high.  Most men that have approached them have tried some lame pickup line, or lame scheme to get her phone number. So, after all of that here you come trying something different, but she may shut you down before you even get started.  If you must approach a woman in a club or bar, here are four tips you should follow to increase your chance of success. 1. Avoid Showing Insecure Body Language Before you’ve even… [Read more]

Texting has unfairly become the scourge of dating. People will text more willingly than they are at attempting to carry on a normal telephone conversation.  I totally understand the draw to texting as it is convenient, you can reply at your leisure, and you can do other things while you are at it.  Texting almost makes things TOO convenient to the point where, it is easy to avoid talking on the phone and opt instead to text message.  It’s much easier to launch a new relationship by exchanging texts than it is to talk, and quite easy to say and do things over a screen that one would never have the nerve to do face to face (or say ear to ear). Let’s be real here, texting is here to stay, it is not going anywhere, so you need to learn how to manage your… [Read more]

Our generation of men has possibly become the torch bearers for the bachelor way of life. Our emotions regarding relationships are not excessively unfavorable or even optimistic since we view marriage as one of a couple living options in the future. For many years in this country, women were treated like 2nd class citizens; they weren’t allowed to leave their parent’s houses until they were married and to get married they had to be courted. Women had to rely on a husband to take care of the finances while she took care of the children and home. Well now times have changed and many women are making just as much or more than men. Women no longer need a man to survive People can take care of themselves now and don’t need to partner up with someone to get through the tough times. This has led to… [Read more]

Most people never set out to find and fall into a relationship for the wrong reasons, but it’s an unfortunately common process. Here are five of the wrong reasons to get involved in a relationship: #1: You Can’t Stand the Thought of Being Alone A lot of people prefer being miserable in a relationship than being single because “at least they are not alone”.  When you fear being alone, you’re much more likely to make bad choices and end up getting involved with and staying in bad relationships because it distracts you from feeling lonely. #2: You’re Getting Old and the Clock is Running Out A relationship should not be based on two people getting together because time is running out. Many women feel that 40 is the age where you should no longer have children because there is a higher risk of birth defects. … [Read more]

Ray Lewis could very well play his last game on Sunday, and whether Ravens win or lose the Super Bowl it will be a dream ending.  Ed Reed says that Lewis may not be done, and could get an itch to play next year, but that’s a discussion for another time.  It’s only fitting that Lewis had to go through two of the biggest Titans in the NFL to get there.  He conquered two men at the top of the food chain in their respective careers, and bested both of them facing the end of his career..  Football may be a team game, but the Ravens have galvanized themselves around Ray Lewis. When Lewis announced he was retiring it spurned a lot of reaction mostly positive, but there were those who saw fit to bring up the 2000 murders of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar… [Read more]

Despite what standard culture will have you believe, It is not impossible to become friends with your former lover. Many believe that because you had sex with somebody in the past, there’s no way you’ll be able to be friends with them once the connection is over. It really all depends on the individuals involved; if your ex is immature and will use the friendly relationship as some way to “hold on” to your previous relationship – then of course it might not be a good plan to keep them around. Life is too short to hold grudges and it seems absurd to exclude someone from your life that you cared about and had great times with. They probably understand you more than anyone else, and beyond the physical attraction, is a really good friend. You made a conscious choice to make this person a… [Read more]
