Being The Chooser: Your Guarantee To Finding Love

By Simpanique, published on Dec 15, 2011

Do you take the initiative to go and get what you want? Or do you find yourself reacting to people and situations? Perhaps you have been conditioned to please others, or never received encouragement to take risks. Maybe you’re a person who feels powerless about influencing your outcomes so you let other people in your life make all the choices. You may be so afraid of failure that you don’t even try.

There is a better way. Be the chooser. When you become the chooser something amazing happens in your life: you take initiative and responsibility for your outcomes. You are in charge... (more)

Dear Coach Scott

By Simpanique, published on Dec 13, 2011

Dear Coach Scott:

Why do I need the support of a community to find the love of my life? I am completely focused on finding my life partner and I don't need anyone else's help.

The only problem I seem to be having is that I do not know where to meet potential partners. So what that means is that I am not having luck in finding prospective partners. Where are they? Do you have any suggestions?

Focused On Finding My Life Partner

Dear FOFMLP:

Before I answer your questions, I need share something with you. You are in one of the most common traps that singles... (more)

Politics and Bed Sheets

By Randy Mitchell, published on Dec 7, 2011

...and probably religion are two of the most debated subjects we'll ever discuss as human beings and nothing weaves people together, or tears them apart more than these very important topics. In the current, super-heated political arena we're living in now, it's inevitable during the dating phase that you'll discuss how a romantic partner signs along his/her political dotted lines. Are they Republican or Democrat, Capitalist or Socialist, Pro-Gay or Anti-Gay? How do they feel about Government Fiscal Responsibility, Immigration, Taxes, Abortion, Global Warming, those... (more)

Online Dating Sites are Great for the Pocketbook

By TonyBerkman, published on Nov 30, 2011

...in a city like NY where things aren't cheap, it is logical that people need to figure out creative solutions to make ends meet. Some people are turning to alternative (m)eating lifestyles. Given the choice between cutting down on eating at nice restaurants, there are people that turn to dating sites to find men that will pick up the tab.

One women came forward and told Business Insider that she subsidises her $45k annual salary with free dinners from gracious men whom she hooks up with on the dating site Match.com.

The 23-year-old says her hectic dating schedule... (more)

Rate Me Up... Before You Go-Go!

By Maylin Gonzalez, published on Nov 23, 2011

I can't help but wonder, are we in life, who we are in bed? How do the two compare? Who are you in bed? Are we rated?If so, how do you think that you rate under the sheets?

There is ALWAYS a rating system. I know I have one. Different categories, score 1-5 (bad to good), add, find the average and that's your score. Done! If they tell you that they haven't compared you or even rated you, they lie. Everyone does it, no one talks about it.

Here is a step-by-step of the rated categories:

1. Timing.2. Drive intensity.3. Kissing style.4. Foreplay technique.5. Sex.6. Feelings.

No Extended Warranties

By Maylin Gonzalez, published on Nov 23, 2011

Divorced men.

Are they antiques, used objects, or just innocent men who got suckered into an oblivion of sexless nights?

Most importantly: Can we test drive them prior to buying? How about returns after buying them? 30 days?Are all of his parts still under warranty?If not, how can we fix it?What if he has children? Do you truly need another toy car up your ass?

For many of you... I didn't think so.

There are so many thoughts when getting involved with a man with a past, specially if his past runs so deep. So do we simply neglect to view the obvious and decide to... (more)

Autres Temps, Autres Moeurs

By JohnnyFox, published on Nov 5, 2011

Three things happened recently to make me think about (my and others’) gay life.

Ken Clarke the Justice Secretary, who I’m convinced moonlights as the Churchill Insurance dog barked some stuff in parliament about thinking there ought to be different categories of rape – but seemed ignorant of the fact this crime can and does happen to men. The London Gay Men's Chorus, to which I belong, recently performed a concert in aid of the male rape crisis charity, Survivors UK.

On the excellent author Paul Burston’s facebook page, there’s been massive debate about how ‘barebacking’ (unprotected... (more)

That Lovin' Feeling

By Randy Mitchell, published on Oct 20, 2011

Everyone from psychologists to astrologers have tried figuring out what provides that all-wonderful, physiological reaction that takes place when man and woman meet for the very first time. What turns your skin moist and warm, your eyes dilated and sleepy eyed, and your blood pressure spiking to astronomical levels, surging with lust upon first glance. Many have crashed a car while staring out the window, or even fainted at first sight at their one-in-a-million guy or girl. But, no matter why or when it happens, all of us are always on the lookout for our next sweat-filled, throw-your-hair-back,... (more)

iLo on Men: Let Me Make It Easy for You

By iLo Ivy, published on Oct 4, 2011

I'm not going to pretend that I'm always on your side. Every so often you do get on my nerves, guys. But I must admit, I understand why you say the things you say, and do the things you do (yes, toilet seat included). OK, I'd like to kick off this gig with a little chat about the rather confusing subject of 'being easy' (but not necessarily slutty). Of course, I'm talking about us, ladies. We all know it's perfectly cool for a guy to want to have sex ASAP. It's called 'being charming', right?

Well, lucky you! I praise the outgoing male for being direct, expressing what he wants, "bullsweet"... (more)

The ‘Silent Treatment’ Speaks Volumes – What is It Saying?

By iLo Ivy, published on Sep 30, 2011

But we’re so used to settling for the obvious – s/he doesn’t want to (answer) or s/he is too keen (on me) – that we’ve almost lost the ability to think rationally about why we keep failing at communicating more openly.

If you’re one of those people who keeps wondering, where to draw the line between gratitude and politeness – because you like to think of yourself as someone who’s “too nice and wouldn’t hurt a fly” – when s/he is “too keen” for your liking, the question you need to ask yourself is, “Why don’t I simply say, ‘I really don’t want to receive your emails, or calls, or text... (more)
