Women need to be smart and strategic if they want to secure and maintain a satisfying relationship. You say that you’re a liberated woman, so you can grab whatever cock grabs your fancy. You are not going through each day looking to interact with and smile at attractive and approachable people. The adorable guy behind you in line at Starbucks can’t say hi if you’re on your phone, plus he’s hearing you sound like a complete idiot with your BFF.14. It’s him expressing an interest in spending time with you. Just be aware that when you’re making the rounds within a certain community or group of friends, word gets out fast. He gave me very inexpensive fun earrings, but what I remember is the card he made.
Many contributing factors have created “hookup culture,” where physical intimacy precedes emotional intimacy, which may or may not develop. Or are there women who have a knack for bringing out the boyfriend in guys? We can present our best physical selves by taking care of ourselves and taking pride in our appearance, but we can’t mess (much) with the genetic hand we’ve been dealt. The good news is that we can control our behavior, and that can change everything! Your feelings are constantly hurt, and he is constantly apologizing. That will get you laid, but try to remember that it’s the male of the species that got the big dose of testosterone. You cry on his shoulder all the time when you don’t get what you want. You’re not emotionally engaged in a caring and generous way. (Obviously, do the opposite of what I say here if it’s a booty call situation.)15. OK, fine, you don’t want any guy who cares about how many people you’ve slept with. I don’t think there has ever, ever been a guy who got laid and didn’t tell anyone about it afterwards. Don’t blow someone off when something better comes along. Women constantly complain that men aren’t reliable, but I’ve seen plenty of women flake out on guys.17.
Short men are screwed when it comes to dating, right?
After all: most things in your dating life can be worked on and improved upon, but the cold hard truth is that some aspects are set in stone. and there are few other aspects that cause men as much dating agita as being short.
While the odds may be against committed relationships, there are some happy couples to be seen around. I’m not suggesting that you change to get yourself a man. If you wouldn’t do it sober…then you really don’t want to do it at all.8. I once knew a very smart woman who exclaimed at a frat party that she thought Mt. I don’t know why some women love to get all girly and giggly. I’ve heard guys speak in awe (and fear) of mean girls, but Chuck Bass is the only guy I’ve ever seen who really wanted to love one, and he’s fictitious. Fighting all the time can be rewarding in the short-term, because it amps up the sexual tension for makeup sex, but ultimately it’s a total boner-killer.11. That male is biologically programmed to seek his complementary opposite – which includes a much larger dose of estrogen. If you’re not curious about him; if you are not hungry for details about who he is and what he’s into, then maybe he’s the wrong guy. If your number is high and that fact is well known, you have every right to find a new pack of males and reinvent yourself.16. Don’t ditch him because your friend “really needs you.” Don’t double book yourself.
Even at college, that Happy Hookup Hunting Ground, you see couples walking hand in hand. I’m suggesting that there are certain behaviors that men, as well as discriminating women, find unattractive. This is probably the #1 behavior that gets girls labeled in the early days.2. You say you want a nice guy, but you fall for the same lines again and again. No one, male or female, ever became more attractive when they got drunk (beer goggles just fool you into thinking they did). I suppose it makes them feel sexier, a la Marilyn Monroe. Sometimes, guys want to get with mean girls because they’re powerful, but that relationship isn’t about love.10. You can be strong, independent, and very, very female.12.
But hey, that’s cold comfort when women are putting “six feet tall, minimum” in their dating profiles and your friends all call you “Short Round”.
The thing is, as with many other masculine insecurities, this is predominantly in our heads. Worse, I’m the shortest of all my friends who range from 5’1o” on the short side, to 6’7″ on the tall side.
But my height has only been as much of a problem as I’d let it be.
Over the years, I’ve dated and slept with women of all heights, ranging from 5’1″ to six-foot tall amazons.
Secretly, your anger won’t be satisfied until you’ve brought them around to your way of thinking and shamed them for the times they stepped away from it. In fact, they their past, or your plan will work and they will feel really horrible about it. If they start defending their past, it’s going to push the two of you farther apart.
