    Asking For Your Number...

    Why do men ask for your number and then not call?  I would rather they didn't ask because then I wouldn't get my hopes up!

    Been seeing the same dude

    since August, and at the end of October, we made it clear we were 'exclusive'. Since then, I've seen things and felt things that have led me to believe he isn't being honest with me. On one of our dates in the middle of November, I saw him using Tinder (where we met). He wasn...

    Why is it that men like the chase

    if a woman so much? Then when they land the woman and she would do anything for them they lose interest?

    Why Does It Work This Way?

    So, there's a guy that I've been off and on with for about five years. When I say off and on I mean that we dated for a few months, have a history, and in between relationships have hooked up now and again. He's a great guy and can be really sweet and considerate, etc. However...

    I Can't Read Your Mind..!

    Sometimes I feel like men just expect us to know what they're thinking. Like they expect us to know what they want, and how they feel. Well, I don't know about you, but I am not superwoman! I have no idea what's going on in guys' heads. I get so many mixed messages and I'm not...

    I Know What Freud Would Say

    Freud, were he still alive, would tell me that I don't understand men because I lived with my mother as a teenager and had almost all female friends.  Mind you, I think Freud was usually full of sh*t. However, I do think being surrounded by women had an impact on my ability...

    Men Are Like Bananas

    They are only ripe enough to be enjoyed for such a short amount of time. First, when they are bright and fresh, you can just take them as they are. They travel easily, get along well with others - see one banana and there's never one too far away, and they don't require too...

    My Odd Love Affair With Men
