I know there are others like me that aren’t wired this way, and seek something with some level of greater commitment both emotionally and sexually. I have a myriad of friends who complain all the time: “I am not slutty enough for New York.”

(via huffingtonpost)

Gays have become the unpaid secretaries of desire, filing and cataloguing human weakness. Promiscuity is now a form of bureaucracy. Tedious, eye-straining, number-crunching slave work.

Dear Single Women of NYC: It’s Not Them, It’s You.

"If you’re not Hispanic, I want you to have an olive skin tone. I really like dark skin and it’s something that’s non-negotiable. The last person I need to be with is another white boy from the Valley.

You also need to have a nice ass and look like you eat regularly. I’m not in the mood to be the fat one in the relationship so if you could keep eating that spaghetti, that would be great.” - Ryan O’ Connell

"Still single, gals? America’s most eligible bachelors don’t live where you think. The Daily Beast crunched the numbers to pinpoint the 36 cities with the most—and least—dateable guys." - The Daily Beast

In New York, and especially in the movie business, it’s hard to dispel the fantasy that there’s always someone better just around the corner.

- Laura Berning in an article for The New York Times titled I Call Your/His Name.

"You can date someone in the summertime when it’s too hot to have rules. This person might not make sense in February when you’re wearing thick coats and eating too much, but they’ll fit in nicely at a Fourth of July barbecue or a pool party. Your bodies will stick together in the heat and sometimes having sex will be the grossest activity you can think of, but you’ll do it anyway." - Ryan O’ Connell

What’s a CB? It’s a cock-blocker. This term refers to anyone who stands between you and the best cock in town. A typical cock-blocker is another woman (or man) in the room who’s after your man. But it doesn’t mean you’re necessarily competing for the same thing. Mamas are expert cock-blockers—they don’t want you stealing their sons. You can even be cock-blocked by your own children, if they’re jealous of any man treating their mother like a woman instead of as a person who gave them life. You must always be aware of potential cock-blockers and be prepared to confront them in any way necessary. When a dog is eating, smart people refrain from attempting to get between that dog and the bowl. Be that dog.

"Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin suggest that what really matters in a budding relationship isn’t looks or common interests, but compatible language styles. They studied language style by use of personal pronouns, articles, prepositions and adverbs. “You are four times more likely to match and probably go on a date if your language style matching is even just above average,” said study author James Pennebaker.  Researchers also tracked college-aged students’ IMs concluding if they “were high in language style matching they were much more likely to be together three months later,” and those with the highest matching, “were 50 percent more likely to be dating at follow-up.”

"A good marriage civilizes men. At least, that’s what it looks like, since fewer married men are antisocial. Married men are more responsible, less aggressive, less likely to do something illegal and more mentally healthy than single ones." - Belinda Luscombe


Tis the season to be single…


NPR’s Robert Krulwich ponders the recent infographic that shows peak break-up times on Facebook based on status-message-data-crunching. (Apparently we’re now entering the ‘danger season.’ Be afraid, ye in relationships.)

He wants to know what you see when you look at the graph. What do you believe? What do you doubt? What did you learn? Let him know.

"Armed with confidence and motivated by frustration, women are taking bar scene matters - and the art of the pickup - into their own hands." - Amelia Rayno

After seeing what the coal miner’s mistress looks like, it has given me hope that I still might find a man!
