    Too many women waste years of their lives hoping they can talk a boyfriend into marriage. Women who master the eight dating rules don’t have to. In the 1950s, that oft-ridiculed era when women all over the country were purportedly miserable, marriage proposals were so common women had to turn down several potential husbands before deciding on the right one.That was certainly the case for my mother, who was born in 1930. As a young girl, I found countless love letters from Charlie, George, Frank—and others whose names I can’t recall—that all contained marriage proposals. They were stored in my...
  • Binge drinking helps men woo women by proving they are 'healthy and strong', scientists claim

    It may seem an uncouth way to spend the evening, but binge drinking could be an evolutionary tactic to woo women, say scientists. Research suggests that heavy consumption of alcohol tells a potential mate that the binge drinker is 'healthy and strong'. According to the authors of a study of American men published in the academic journal Evolutionary Psychology, heavy drinking among young adults delivers a 'sexual signal' that demonstrates their worth.
  • Study: Teenagers Who Don't Date Have Better Social Skills, Less Depressed

    With all of the social and personal turmoil that develops during the teenage years, a new study finds teens who hold off on dating have better social skills, are happier, and are less depressed. This finding goes against American culture in terms of every movie or television show that portrays teenagers in high school. Some believe that dating is just a part of being a teenager. Forming a romantic relationship for the first time can help in a teenager's own self-esteem. Researchers at the University of Georgia say that's true, but they've also found that not dating could be even...

    <p>I knew a woman who was married to a professional man. He worked hard, long hours, was always inventive, creative. He was a dedicated father; she demanded it, for sure, but even beyond that, he was all in and was an extremely active dad. She didn’t like to cook, didn’t think it was her job, so he learned how. She didn’t like to tidy up, and he was no Mr. Clean, but he gave it a go. She wanted him to be compliant, yet resilient, and he tried to be all of the things she wanted. He even pretty well achieved it. He’d come so far that he sent us all a poem about how to appease the women in his house, who wanted him to leave the toilet seat down, he learned to pee sitting down. What a mensch! Only, in the end, she tired of his acquiescence and left him for a belligerent roofer 10 years her junior.</p>

    Early last week found me getting a check-up for the first time in more than a decade. With medical professionals in my family, I can too easily put off those preventative appointments. So, I sat in the olive-green vinyl chair, the sort that populate doctors’ offices across the country. I felt a bit sheepish, like I’d been getting away with something by not going to the doctor for so long. The nurse took my vitals. The doctor asked the routine questions. What medications am I on? None. Do I have any allergies? No. Am I sexually active? No. Have I...
  • Man whose date asked him to activate 'read receipts' on his phone after their first meeting [tr]

    Many of us choose to turn off the read receipts on our mobile phones to give us a better excuse for not immediately replying to messages. After all, there's nothing worse than seeing that familiar blue double-tick on WhatsApp, or the iMessage timestamp pop up to indicate the person has received and read our text and actively chosen not to respond. This is especially true when it comes to dating - but for one man from New York, being ghosted on this occasion would probably have been the preferable option. Eric Dimitratos, 33, who works in digital marketing, shared a...

    FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. (WESH) – A woman who went on a first date with a man ended up in a chase after he took off during a traffic stop, officials said. Flagler County sheriff’s deputies used stop sticks to disable a car that fled a traffic stop in Palm Coast about 2 a.m. Thursday.

On body camera, the woman could be heard telling authorities that the only thing the man said was that he didn’t have a...

    Thousands of US millennials are priced-out of the dating market, a new study has shown. Researchers found that a third of Generation Y are reluctantly single because they can't afford to pursue love. According to the data, financial instability is hampering their ability to find 'the one' because it's forcing them to budget, instead. Meanwhile, a quarter of respondents even said they would happily have sex with a human-like robot - but this would still be classed as cheating my half of partners.

    PJ Media ^ | 07/27/2019 | Tyler O' Neill
    Josh Harris, author of the bestselling 1997 book I Kissed Dating Goodbye, announced on Instagram Friday that he had kissed Christianity goodbye, as well. He is also divorcing his wife. In recent years, Harris has rightly repented of his extraordinarily stringent and slightly heretical teachings in the evangelical purity movement, but he seems to have thrown the baby out with the bathwater. Ironically, the evangelical ex-pastor went from preaching one worldly dogma dressed up in Christian garb to fully embracing another worldly dogma clearly opposed to Christianity.Last week, Harris announced that he and his wife of 21 years would be separating. This is...

    FULL TITLE: She Verbally Consented To Sex But The School Determined He Committed Sexual Assault Because He ‘Cajoled’ Her With Flattery ============================================================= A new lawsuit filed against Pennsylvania State University includes several abnormalities, including the school’s decision to review the first hearing into a student’s alleged sexual misconduct and the decision to change the definition of consent in the middle of the disciplinary proceedings.

    When did the Friendzone become such a terrible place to live? In the wake of the Santa Barbara shootings, the unpleasant underbelly of the pickup artist community (PUA), involuntary celibates (incels), and other unhealthy refuges for lonely men have drawn scrutiny and condemnation. They describe themselves as exiles; in the case of the Isla Vista shooter, he decided to destroy the world he couldn’t enter, instead of building something new outside it. Their sense of exclusion is exacerbated by the stories we tell about sex as a prize you can earn and the tendency of the media to shame sexual...

    The results are in: she only wanted to try that hot new restaurant. A new study published Friday in the Society for Personality and Social Psychology journal found that a quarter to a third of heterosexual women have gone on a date with a guy they weren’t interested in — just for a free meal. “Foodie calls,” can happen when money’s tight, the grocery store is out of a favorite frozen meal, or a must-try entree is just too extravagant to justify — when the tab comes out of your own bank account. Two studies, the first conducted with 820...

    WASHINGTON – Actress and activist Alyssa Milano said she’s “playing the field” when it comes to 2020 Democratic candidates and isn’t ready to settle down and endorse anyone – despite her friendship with former Vice President Joe Biden. “To be honest with you, I really feel like I’m dating a lot of people right now. I feel like I’m playing the field and I’m dating and once I know who’s going to be right for me I will make that decision,” she told SiriusXM “Press Pool’s” guest host Ted Johnson in an interview that aired Monday.

    A database containing records of tens of millions of users of various dating apps has been found publicly accessible, according to a researcher who says it remains unclear who amassed the data. In a blog Wednesday, security researcher Jeremiah Fowler said he discovered the database and that it was not protected by so much as a password. The 42.5 million records, which appeared to belong to multiple apps, were stored on a U.S.-based server and largely contained the IP addresses and location data of American users. The apps to which the data belongs include Cougardating, Christiansfinder, Mingler, Fwbs (friends with...

    A man accused of swindling $80,000 from a Georgia woman he met online has been arrested in Tennessee -- and is wanted in other states for similar scams, authorities said. John Martin Hill, 35, connected with the woman from Alpharetta, Georgia, on in late March, the Gwinnett County Police Department said Wednesday. Hill took the woman out on a date the same day they met, and the two agreed to get married within a week of meeting, authorities said. He told the woman he's a millionaire, and they decided to invest in a love nest. The woman gave her...

    A US government committee has pressured Grindr’s Chinese owner to sell the LGBTQ dating app over national security concerns, reports Reuters. The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) is reportedly concerned about owner Beijing Kunlun Tech’s access to personal data. The Chinese conglomerate, which also has an ownership stake in the Opera browser, purchased Grindr outright in 2018. The US has increasingly scrutinised the way apps collect and handle personal data, especially in cases where it involves members of the US Military or intelligence services. Kunlun did not go through the voluntary process of submitting its acquisition...
