I get some grief when I write about certain women/girls (models) but everyone seems to love it when I shaft men, so I think I'll do a bit of that today, in the hope that you will give me five stars and say things in the comment section like, "Your writing skills are amazing and I'd love to have sex with you". With that hope in mind, I will tell you the truth about men. Men don't really mind if they are insulted as long as what is said is true. We pretty much will accept derogatory comments that are accurate, shrug our shoulders and say "Oh well" and go back to pretending that we get offered... Read More

People living outside of the U.S. (outside of California - heck, outside of L.A.) may have certain preconceived notions about the City of Angels and its residents (Bay Watch and 90210 helped in forming those notions, and now we have shows like The Hills and MTV Cribs to thank). But we Angelenos know what kinds of people live here: um, actors, models, musicians... Clearly, L.A. is a wellspring of "creative types," and creativity has to do with everything from making the perfect hamburger, to teaching linguistics, to sign-spinning on the corner of Hollywood and Highland. With this series of... Read More

Guys are simple. We're visual. We're limbic. We're open about it. When we see a pretty girl, we will likely stare too long. Tight jeans, short skirts and hoochie tops (yes, we know what those are) will get our attention. The right perfume will keep us from focusing. When someone asks us what we like in a woman, we'll respond with a physical description so complete that a police artist could come up with a composite. (I've tried this three separate times and now have a funny little collage of Pamela Anderson sketches to show for it.) It's only when we get that disapproving stare that we make... Read More

Dating is supposed to be fun, but planning a unique and memorable experience can be challenging and even stressful -- which could leave you stuck in the old dinner-and-a-movie rut. Whether you're in the first date jitters stage, the comfortably married club, or somewhere in between, when planning a date, keep your eye on the prize: the F-word. Fun is the universal component of any and every great date. If you're still hanging on to that dinner and a movie, a movie and dinner routine, here's a newsflash: it's old. Time to start thinking outside the box. Easier said than done, I know, (otherwise... Read More

Many of you ladies may have read, or at least heard of, the book "He's just not that into you" by Greg Behrendt. The book was touted to me as an all inclusive guide to understanding men. As I understood it, men were "quaking in their boots" in fear that all of their deceptive player games would be revealed. I opened the book with anticipation. In my hot little hands were the answers to age old questions like, "why hasn't he called me"", and it had only cost me $14.95 retail! As my eyes poured over the pages my excitement turned to disappointment. What I had in my hot little hands was... Read More

When I was right about the age that "presumably" heterosexual people begin viewing attractive members of the opposite sex as potential lifelong partners, my older sister gave me a stern piece of advice. "Don't go out with the really good looking guys," she warned, having noticed my penchant for comparing potential dates against Johnny Depp. "They can't keep it in their pants." Ten and some-odd years later, said older sister is now happily married with a beautiful child to a man who adores her to pieces, and who would never think of keeping it anywhere outside of his Dockers. And why would... Read More

Relationships have always been difficult for me...I cannot tell you how I marvel at those who seem to be able to manage them so easily,to navigate the untidy waters of dating and commitment as if born to it-endowed with some special skill conferred to some and denied others. Now truth be told I don't spend an inordinate amount time thinking about love,relationships or dating and certainty those who have been with me would of course no doubt agree-knives opened and venom on display. I don't think that I am that hard to be with (of course who does)I freely admit and own up to my flaws-after... Read More
