How To Get Out of the Dreaded Friend Zone(14)

January 12, 2013

I was recently reading the Ask Men love advice column. A male reader had written in asking about his relationship with a female friend. He had expressed his romantic feelings to her and she had put him off by claiming she wasn’t “ready” for a long term commitment. Then he found out she was dating some other… Read More ›

You’ve Been Unceremoniously Dumped. Should You Go Psycho?

You’ve been seeing each other for a few months, maybe years. You’re in a committed relationship and you think things are going great. You receive a text from him, “I’ve met someone else. I want to get my things out of your place asap.” WHAT?! He’s met someone else?? It’s over?! How can that be?… Read More ›

And You Thought The Crazy Cat Lady Was A Whackjob….

I’ve been following the blog of a woman who calls herself Lonely Heart. It consists of nothing but dozens of love letters to her man. They have to write snail mail letters because he’s away—no, not in the Navy serving his country. He’s in prison. She claims he’s been “wrongfully imprisoned.” I asked what Mr…. Read More ›

How To Attract a Man

I have come to realize from reading lists of unrealistic requirements for a man, and women’s ridiculous online dating profiles, that women don’t know jack about men. I’m shocked since there are books about men galore, and talk shows discuss relationships ad nauseum. Somehow women aren’t getting the message. Women of all ages don’t seem… Read More ›

A Sexual Contract

Men in our society seem to have a fear of being accused of rape. Maybe they should be afraid. Case in point: the Duke LaCrosse players who were falsely charged with rape by a stripper/hooker they hired to entertain at one of their parties. Some people have come up with the idea that a sexual… Read More ›

If You Find Yourself Being Smacked Around, It Is Your Own Fault

Today’s post is about a serious topic:  domestic abuse. Dr. Phil is on a mission to keep women from being battered. His slogan is “End the Silence On Domestic Violence.” But I recently watched him counsel a woman whose boyfriend, punched, choked, and kicked her. Dr. Phil told her she wasn’t to be blamed for… Read More ›

Booty Grab Bag

I had been attending upscale parties for young single professionals. One night I gave a couple guys my phone number. A few weeks later, one of them called me late at night. We engaged in the usual small talk. Suddenly—instead of asking me out—this guy tries to talk me into driving to his house. To… Read More ›

He Would Rather Eat Broken Glass Than Tell You It’s Over

Guys are very bad when it comes to communicating verbally that it’s over. You could be with him for years, and have 10 kids with him. It doesn’t matter. He will do almost anything to avoid having to say the words to your face, “I don’t want to be with you any more.” It’s because guys can’t stand a woman’s anger or… Read More ›

Screw Trust. You Need to be Watching Your Man

Some bloggers responded to my post “He Doesn’t Want to be Your Effing Friend!!” with statements about how you just need to trust your partner. Wrong. We’re always told in order to have a healthy relationship you must trust your partner. It would be great to trust your partner—whether it’s a man or woman. The fact is, you shouldn’t. Trust… Read More ›

He Doesn’t Want to be Your Effing Friend!!

Here’s the deal with the “friend” thing. Guys, no matter their age, don’t need or want friends who are females. They have their guy friends to hang out with, play sports, watch the game. And guys prefer their guy friends for most activities. It can happen, where you have a genuine male friend (with no… Read More ›

Guys, Don’t be Such Dumbasses

So I’m minding my own business in my front yard picking up kids’ toys left behind. The kids in the neighborhood played in my yard because it was the only patch of real grass for blocks. I’m holding a black plastic broken toy in my hand–when out of nowhere–this strange guy I’ve never laid eyes on before strides up… Read More ›
