While single men and married men can hang-out and do many things together, there are a few zones that are just awkward when you’re single. Like it or not there are two differing factions when it comes to your social life. There’s the Player’s Club for Singles and the Couple’s Getaway Club for Married folks. Awkward feelings tend to arise when a member of one of these Clubs tries to enter into the other without the proper credentials. Being that I have been the awkward single guy at many a Couple’s Getaway, I’ve compiled a list of events that you should probably avoid attending as a single man. Weddings (when you’re the last friend single)  If you have a great group of friends and you’re the last one left not married, attending that guy’s wedding will put a lot of attention on you. Prepare to have all the newly married… [Read more]

People always say that its only when pet peeves and annoyance comes into play that you realize how much you are willing to put up with when it comes to dating. Once you know how much you are willing to put up with (and what you definitely are not) you tend to migrate towards and settle with someone who fits that mold. Then there’s that woman.  We all know who she is. The one who for whatever reason makes her issues the sole controller of her emotions when she meets someone and gets close to a real relationship.  It almost seems that she is more comfortable when she is getting screwed over, doesn’t it? I have known women in the past who have put up with a lot of wrongdoing and they truly didn’t deserve it.  Makes me think that nice girls really do finish last.  It’s like when… [Read more]

Many of you have talents, both evident and hidden within you, but you fear taking action to present them to the world. You look at the people who act, and you say “I wish I could do that”, or “One day I will do that”, but time has never been about uplifting the doubtful. People don’t help, especially if they know that they can sway you towards the negative, and many of us aren’t born with enough of that fire to push past everything and strive to ascend. This does not mean that you should accept that being stagnant is your fate. I will not sit here and pretend to know the answer for motivation, and enabling action, but I can tell you that failure is not as devastating as you think it is. Failure is a part of the game, and while success is what… [Read more]

I am often asked the question about what I would do if I won the lottery. Of course my answer is that I would give the large majority of it to The Toilet Paper People Foundation, a foundation created to serve child abuse victims in an attempt to give them new and creative futures outside of their abusive pasts. “Um, well once the damage is done to a kid, it’s kinda done isn’t it? Kids have plenty of opportunities that animals don’t.”Some well-intentioned people will ask me more questions of this nature until I have to wonder if it would have been more p.c. of me to have suggested I give the money to the Humane Society. In many cases question askers of this variety will go on in an attempt to discredit the already disenfranchised, “I mean, humans have more of an opportunity to… [Read more]

“Dear Dragon, I really enjoy your website and seem to agree with you on many of the articles you post. I’d like some advice on the ways of living a single life.  Every time I meet up with them the conversation seems to eventually turn to how I shouldn’t be single (as if its some kind of hardship), how they wish I was as happy as they are (I’m happier than they seem to be), how I “deserve” someone (What does that even mean?). Then out come the list of potential girlfriends, or even worse than the list we “accidentally” bump into one of these women. I’ve tried telling them that I am happy doing my own thing for the moment, that I hate blind dates, that I have plenty of time to marry should I wish to in the future, that I’m concentrating on my… [Read more]

Imagine that you woke up tomorrow morning and the man with the money and power no longer had the “over” in terms of pulling cute girls with long weave, designer shoes, and fake lashes? What if the genders balanced out in desires and women began to look for firm young men with fun-loving attitudes, single digit sexual histories and the desire to be loyal no matter what happens? Where would you stand, and what would you change about your life to accommodate this change? Recently I wrote an article about how women should never be your goal in life and I meant every bit of it. Too often we see men climbing the corporate ladder, trading in sports cars and feigning riches in order to attract a date that they consider “out of their league”. We have balanced a woman’s youth and innocence with our… [Read more]

I recently read an article “Three Things Man Crave Daily From Women” and starting to read this, I was ready to be defense or take some kind umbrage with the content, but I was pleasantly surprised and would only make one additional suggestion to the content – that women would want the same things. The article discusses three things that you can do within your relationship that will keep men tuned into their relationship; maintained affection and desire, loyalty and showing appreciation. Through reading the article I can see that these things are likely to affect men and women differently but they are important across the board. For men, showing affection and desire is the key to allowing men to not only feel attractive to their partner, but to be a visual display that they are connected to their partner. Anyone who is a visual… [Read more]

Sometimes curiosity can get the better of a man and cause more problems than we need in our lives. We ask things knowing we won’t like the answer then say and do something stupid out of reaction to it only to end up apologizing or losing the love of our lives for it. Some things are best left a mystery and I will explain why and how you should move your mind past it. 1. How Many Men Have You Slept With? Some men have this wondrous illusion that they will go out to the Club, meet the hottest women living and she will end up being as pure as a virgin having had sex with one ex-boyfriend and that’s it. This is dumbass thinking, it really is and it is void of all logic being that women get down just like men get down…. [Read more]
