Results For "mad men"
Jun 25

In a memorable episode of AMC’s Mad Men the leading man Don Draper ran into his ex-wife (pun intended) at a location where her husband and his wife weren’t in attendance. Scandalous? Sure It is, but realistic? A bit more than we would like to admit. I have always felt that matters of the heart are one thing but sex is in its own category of things. When we have broken the barrier of nakedness and sex with a partner, rekindling those old flames to “jump right back in there” tends to not feel as taboo as it should for us, now does it? This is the main reason why I had to tell my long lost beauty of a college sweetheart goodbye when I settled down with the woman of my life. I knew that if she was anywhere within reach, horny, and trying me – chances… [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]

Donald Draper with jacket thrown over his shoulder

Donald Draper, the flawed leading man in the hit television show Mad Men, represents an ideal that many men strive for but soon regret once attaining it. Draper is rich, has a smoking hot wife (no pun intended) and is world famous in his career as an advertiser. Donald Draper is also handsome and all women’s legs seem to fall open for him with little to no effort; so as you can see he is the ultimate model of a man’s man. Let us delve even further into the ideal that is Draper… the man has good looking children, his wife is always on point in the beauty department (because her looks are her only asset) and he has a sexual targeting reticle locked in on him by women from all walks of life. Donald Draper was a soldier, an orphan, a boy who grew… [Read more]

This isn’t a bait and switch, the title reflects exactly what I am about to write here. I’ve noticed that as the tide of tolerance comes in, some men (and I’m sure women too, but I can only speak about the men), okay some men will not change their views on sexism and racism. I have a zero tolerance attitude towards bigots for this reason. A guy may act tolerant and nice to your face, but behind closed doors he takes off the mask and goes to sleep the same monster that he was when he put the mask on before leaving work. When I wrote the article on nerds being sexist and racist, I recalled an incident at an old job where a man went on a rant for minutes to me about the prequels having female Jedis in it. He was a good… [Read more]

Editor’s Note: I’m going to keep score on the amount of visitors who read this title and comment or send me a message without actually taking the time to read the article. My fellow men, I have found the problem with “Nice Guy” and I have gone into my lab to mix up a cure for his lonely ailment. See, the problem with nice men is that they care too much what a woman may think. EUREKA! They care way too much, they don’t care about a woman’s well-being so much as they care too much what a woman thinks about them. Hold that thought, see women contradict themselves constantly in the eyes of men. Try to figure out what a woman wants, then check all your positives off on her list and you may find that there is absolutely no way you could be… [Read more]

I’ve been over some aspects of presentation so far, like straightening your tie and tucking your shirt in. Now it’s time to get into a few things that people might not normally think about. Let’s start with colors. When you’re going to grab that shirt/tie/pant combo you gotta stop and make sure it goes together. There are always good standards to keep in your closet. Some fashion staples are gonna be those black pants and a long sleeve white dress shirt. This is the building block. After this you can start adding colors. Take that white shirt, grab some brown pants, brown tie and you’re lookin like a cast member of Mad Men. Basically if you can match up your tie with your pants you’re gonna be in solid shape. Now they don’t necessarily have to be the same color. Grab a light blue shirt,… [Read more]
