friend zone, kiss, interracial couple

Getting in the friend zone is something that men have lamented since the dawn of time. It is a situation that comes about from a lot of misunderstanding, fear, and a bit of entitlement. Generally men will put the blame on women for the friend zone, we tend to view it as manipulation on the part of the woman. She does just enough to keep you around but when you press the issue of a relationship, she shoots you down or limps away quickly. Comedian Eddie Murphy called it being a “Dick in the Glass Jar” because in essence you are being trained to become an extra “dick” in case the one she wants does not work out. Who here has been friend zoned? This is the part where I raise my hand. Chances are, many of you reading are in this situation right now. Well let’s… [Read more]

What could possibly add on to the perceived “thug culture” of one of the last hyper-masculine sports in the United States? Not much, being that the casual and non-sport fans of the NFL already have the perception that the NFL is comprised of players who are: Uneducated (look at the early reactions to Richard Sherman last season) Criminal (the handful of players who have crossed the law are used to represent the whole) Rapists (Big Ben) Thugs (another term for a scary black person) Over-churched (Reggie White) Racist (Richie Incognito and Riley Cooper) (TBA) The TBA will become “homophobic” by the time we’re into the next season and it will not enhance or destroy the opinion that people have of the NFL already but it will make for a whole lot of news. Right now with Michael Sam announcing that he is gay to the… [Read more]

There will always be attraction in an office where men and women work in close vicinity. I would venture to say that when fallout happens at home for an attractive married person, the chance of the person they cheat with being an office-mate is pretty high. Office romances are a byproduct of working closely with someone for a period of time, the freedom of imagination, and that strange magic that makes someone grow more and more attractive to us as we get to know them better. For people who click with an office mate and would like to pursue a romantic relationship, there must be a level of maturity on both sides that is beyond what is expected of a stranger out on the streets. Dating a co-worker puts your job at risk from the outset and you must know the temperament and volatility of… [Read more]

 It’s probably a bittersweet feeling as you’re sitting on the couch watching the final moments of the 2013 NFL season coming to an end at the Super Bowl. Bitter because there’s no football for another 6 months, and sweet because you keep telling yourself that next year is ‘Our Year’. Nonetheless, we saw Russell Wilson hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in a frigid New Jersey setting which was pretty memorable for such a young quarterback, but we also can’t forget about the interview heard around the world that occurred two weeks ago (can’t stop talking about this right?). Sherman going H.A.M. in his post game interview bought up many topics of discussion such as sportsmanship, social etiquette, and overall sports behavior. There are definitely unwritten rules on gameday behavior but I’ll drop my 2 cents on how gentlemenly you be when it comes to booing your… [Read more]

pretty woman, exotic beauty, lady in orange, sexy eyes, pretty brown eyes

The most popular article on this site has been The Curse of Being A Beautiful Woman due to the amount of commentary and discussion that it has gained. I wrote the article not to pander to beauties but because I wanted to share my unpopular belief that pretty women are ostracized and shunned due to a number of reasons. The comments that spawned from my opinion has been a combination of outsiders (non-beauties and men) denying that beautiful women have a problem and pretty women willing to share their experiences. It has taught me that my observances were correct and that people online as much as in life have a very serious issue with looks. Upon reading the commentary on the beauty article there was one other trend that surfaced which I dislike more than anything else: People who self-identify as “pretty”, “cute”, “cool”, or… [Read more]

It saddens me that after a defensive struggle of epic proportions to decide the winner of the NFC Championship, the only thing the internet had to say was ambiguously racist attacks against Richard Sherman. Don’t worry, this article isn’t about him. What happened on Sunday was two teams—with exciting, young quarterbacks—played their hearts out to have a chance at taking on Peyton “MJ of Football” Manning in the big dance. And what a game it was! Thinking back on the many chances that San Francisco had to take it home (I’m a fan, sorry) the only picture that comes to mind is FOX replaying the disgusting leg injury of NaVorro Bowman about 100 times. Gore fans (not Frank Gore fans but the blood drinkers) and horror whores were probably masturbating themselves into a frenzy as they got super slow motioned, every angle shots of the… [Read more]

There is one thing about being used… it never feels good. When you feel used you become very resentful of the user and it grows inside of you to the point where you need to remove them from your existence as quickly as possible. It makes you feel cheap, ignorant, and gullible, and it makes them seem like a cruel, selfish person with a questionable moral sense. It is like a vice squeezing your throat to prevent your breathing, and you want to either confront them about it or cut off all ties. Many people are using their loved ones without even realizing it. Within their minds they have an alternate reality where their good thoughts about the person they are using are enough to make it okay. They think “he/she knows I love them, and whenever they are in jeopardy I will make sure… [Read more]

A man and his wife were shot in a movie theater yesterday for texting and allegedly making noise. This happened in Florida, in a prominent neighborhood that many friends of mine live in. One friend told me that a fellow band mate of his had gotten into it with the shooter prior to the incident and is now counting his blessings that he wasn’t the one to take a shot from the .380 handgun. What we know is that tempers, seating, and a theater’s failure to act has cost us the life of a father and a husband. Opportunists are already treating this story as a call to arms (no pun intended) for anti-gun rhetoric, or a cry for citizens to get concealed weapons permits en masse. This latter call baffles me given that I never hear stories about armed bystander guy saving the day… [Read more]
