One of the most certain ways to get an unfriendly reaction from someone in a relationship is to pull a “pop up” spontaneously. This rule goes for family, friends and girlfriends–unless you live together–as there is no reason for you to find it reasonable to show up unannounced to their door. It is a general rule that Pop Ups are not okay. Common courtesy serves that you call an individual prior to showing up at his doorstep and to not assume that he will be able to accommodate you. People have their own lives outside of yours so the assumption that you are welcome anytime is asinine at best. Now I know many people who consider this romantic, or spontaneously sexy but save that for your roommate or live-in boyfriend. People who live by themselves like to have warning before running to the door to… [Read more]

Many of us have had bad breakups due to being the ass in the relationship. We were either too immature, too blind, too selfish or too whiny to keep this good person around so we find ourselves, alone, upset and reminiscing on how we lost a potential life-partner. When you find yourself in this situation you more than likely will feel the need to pick up the phone, send a card or email admitting your faults and asking for forgiveness from this individual. In the back of your mind you play out the visuals of reuniting with him/her treating her the way you should have and never taking advantage of him/her again. When you get to this level of low, you should take your exes place mentally and think to yourself “would I want to hear anything from this person again?” More times than none,… [Read more]

1. Let the man (always) pay the bill Can all the new age women stand up!  I am still a firm believer that the if a guy asks a woman out he should pay for the date, but there is nothing wrong with a woman stepping up and paying her part of the tab.  It is probably one of the best moves a woman can make if she isn’t interested in the guy he can’t say she took advantage of the situation and if she is interested it will make a big impression on the guy she is with.  Men go into the date expecting  to pay the bill, but when a woman says she will pay her own way she is going to differentiate herself from all the other women the guy may be talking to.  Inevitably you will still have the petty “free… [Read more]

If you want to get better with your financial situation it is futile to ask a peer for advice if you aren’t prepared to break your history of bad learning and bad habits. Many times my high consumption friends will ask my advice on monetary things and I hesitate to help due to the fact that I know they aren’t prepared to accept what I tell them. It’s very simple really, but it requires the one thing that people of my generation hate doing – reading and paying attention. The secret to financial freedom lies within many a book but it stays elusive due to the fact that people would rather watch something versus reading it. Here’s the thing about watching – the same authors who offer invaluable advice for little to nothing in their books are going to gouge you for being lazy. What… [Read more]

If you are a single man who doesn’t have a good network of other single friends, I feel your pain and I know the hell that you are going through. Even if you are happily single, the stigmas, prejudices and assumptions made by your once single, now married friends is probably annoying as hell to deal with. I will catch some heat on this one but it must be said, as a single man I know for a fact that most wives will dislike me as a friend to their husbands. It is not so much what I do, but what their husband’s do in order to seem cool to me. Being that they know their husbands better than anyone else, they know that the things I do without much thought is taboo for a married man but doesn’t mean that the married man won’t… [Read more]

Rule 06 (Urinals): Unless you actually know a guy (really well) and can’t wait to say something to him, starting up conversation while you both handle your junk at a urinal can be viewed as hostile behavior. Just wait until you are washing your hands or out in the hallway. Stall sessions may not apply… Rule 07 (Cockblocking): It is never okay to cockblock another man while he is scamming on a female. This rule is one of the most violated and misunderstood due to the fact that many men lose their morals around attractive women. Wait your turn or scoop the hawte up after the preceding guy has failed, to cockblock midgame can result in bodily harm. If your buddy is a known cockblocker, it is your duty to warn your other single male friends; so that time spent partying with the guy is… [Read more]

Have you ever heard about these freaks who get married after meeting one another on a game such as Everquest, World of Warcraft or Age of Conan? You probably think to yourself well they’re both losers so they probably don’t care what each other looks like as long as they have someone to love. The thing is, hooking up off of a game isn’t so freaky at all, and contrary to popular belief, most people playing online games aren’t losers. They’re your military personnel, your school teachers, your CIO’s and sometimes even your wife/husband. The draw to these games beyond that of the standard single player RPG, is the dynamic element of human interactivity. While the competitive types can kill each other for rewards in a PVP (Player versus Player) environment, others can just play against the environment while making friends and forming bonds. The… [Read more]

She’s comfortable wearing a velour jogging suit, sneakers and no make-up when you go to the sports bar. She can throw a spiral as well as run a post to actually catch the ball. She hates how women back stab each other so she keeps at most one girlfriend choosing instead the company of guys. She either ran track or played volleyball in college, keeps up with a professional team and can stomach beer. She is sexy all the time but beautiful when she dons make-up and skirt for her friend’s wedding or dinner party. She is the quintessential hot tomboy. She is the woman that most guys go crazy over on paper, but few guys actively pursue in life. Most women like this are snatched up out of college; they are godsends, goldmines, and diamonds in the rough for an athletic type of guy…. [Read more]
