More crappy online dating ‘First Messages’

Hey dudes (and ladies, I’m sure, too). Want to know why no one is responding to your messages on online dating sites? Because you’re sending crappy messages like the following messages I’m about to show you. Please note, these are all word-for-word messages that I’ve received in the past few days.

“Hi. How are you?”

“Hey. What’s going on?”

“You are very beautiful. :)”

“Hello
How are you. Hope you had good day.
Nice to meet you over here .
How was your day.? I have tell you that you have very beautiful smile .. By reading your profile i would say You are perfect combination of beauty and smart..Any fun stuff planed for these spring days .”

“Hello how are you? I’m (name).”

“Hey how are you? My name is Mark and you are very cute and seem like a nice fun person. You sound like a busy girl and have done some really cool stuff.Hope your having a good day”

“think I’m in love will you marry me 🙂 kidding. how are ya?”

“tits”

Seriously guys?! COME ON. I know online dating can seem difficult, but it’s really not THAT hard to write a good first message. Good Lord.

Man Candy Monday: Baseball Edition

This is a different kind of Man Candy Monday for this week. If you know me at all, it’s no secret that I’m a GIANT OBNOXIOUS Red Sox fan. I even work at Fenway Park. That aside, today is the Home Opener for the Boston Red Sox. While last week was the season opener for this year, I’m especially excited today.

I promise you, that I’m actually a real baseball fan for more reasons than the attractive players on the field. However, when I saw this post on Buzzfeed, I had to reblog it for you.

So, if you will, please check out the Bootylicious Tribute to Baseball Butts. It’s way to great to not check out.

Foxy Lady Friday: Ladies of ‘Pretty Little Liars’

Guilty Pleasure Alert! I freaking LOVE Pretty Little Liars. It’s pretty awkward, since a 3rd grader was the one who got me to watch it and now I’m obsessed. Anyway, the girls on this show are all absolutely stunning! So to counteract my Men of Revenge post, here’s Ladies of Pretty Little Liars for Foxy Lady Friday!

First is Troian Bellisario who plays Spencer Hastings.

Then we have Shay Mitchell who plays Emily Fields.

And Lucy Hale who plays Aria Montgomery.

My favorite Little Liar would be Hanna Marin, played by Ashley Benson. You may also recognize her from the new movie Spring Breakers.

So if you want a cheesy guilty pleasure, check out Pretty Little Liars. Or, just look up these ladies because they’re absolutely fabulous.

Man Candy Monday: Men of ‘Revenge’

Happy Man Candy Monday! Today is a special one: I’m featuring the sexy men on the cast of Revenge!

 

First there is Nick Wechsler who plays Jack Porter, the bartender and owner of The Stowaway. Scruffy and sexy!

NW

Then there’s Joshua Bowman who plays Daniel Grayson, CEO of Grayson Global (and the prodigal son of the creepy Grayson family). Helllooooooo hotness.

JB

Even Gabriel Mann who plays Nolan Ross, the CEO and founder of Nolcorp. Nerdy can be hot, too!

GM

But my absolute favorite would be Barry Sloane, who plays Aiden Mathis, Emily’s partner in getting revenge. Just look at the man: pure.sex.

BS

If you don’t watch Revenge, I suggest you start now. I mean, it’s a fantastic show that is loosely based on the Count of Monte Cristo. However, if you’re not into the story line, just watch it for the MEN! Gahhh!

Happy Man Candy Monday!

big spoon to little spoon- come in little spoon

I always love when Sabatino guest posts!

Say what you will, but I love being the big spoon.

There’s just something to be said about being so close and finding that you fit together like perfect pieces of a puzzle.

Sometimes I crave it.  After a long, stressful day when nothing has gone quite right, there’s nothing I want more than to lazily curl up on the couch or in bed with you, pour us a few glasses of wine, and flip through the latest episodes of Boardwalk Empire.  There’s a certain closeness you get with spooning that you just can’t achieve with other romantic physical activity.  Like, feeling your back up against my chest, hips completely in sync, our legs tangled beneath the covers, and my lips dangerously close to your neck and ears.  To be a little cliche, it really is as if two become one, working together in complete harmony.

I find that spooning, at least for me, is the perfect time to bond with your significant other- when you’re smooshed up against each other and yet it still feels like you can’t get close enough.

For those of you who aren’t keen on spooning, keep in mind that women are very sensually oriented.  Luckily for me [as I’ll never admit to being the most handsome man in the world] they mostly respond to body heat, subtle touches, and fresh scents rather than visual stimulation.  This makes spooning the perfect opportunity to segway in to your other agendas, as your hands and lips are free to roam her body-scape. Plus, being the big spoon puts you in a position of control- something I find most women crave out of the men in their relationships.

Here are a few quick tips for all the big spoons out there.  First of all, your lips anywhere near her neck and ears will drive her crazy. Even kissing the back of her neck, just below the hair line will give her chills.  Subtly kissing her shoulders and the length of her back will peak her interest.  In fact, try running your lips in a curvy pattern down her back without ever lifting them up, slowly working your way down and up again, finishing just behind her ear.  Combine these techniques while firmly gripping her hips and pulling her close to you and you may be in for a long night.  When she turns around and throws her arms around you, you’ll know it’s on- just do me a favor and please don’t turn it in to a cheap 80′s porno.  Keep it classy and passionate.

Grown Up Relationships – What do you do with them?

Here’s another post from Jane at Singleosophy and Are You Friggin’ Kidding Me?

What do you do with a grown up relationship?

 

This is something I’ve been thinking about since I graduated college in 2008. More so now that I actually feel like more of a “grown up” with my own apartment and dating in the big city.

So okay. You’re hanging out with this guy. You’re hanging out quite a bit. Everything is going awesome. You’re not seeing anyone else and positive he’s not seeing anyone else either. What now?

What I mean is- at what point do they become “Boyfriend” or “Girlfriend”?

I didn’t date much in college. I had one serious boyfriend and he just outright said “is it cool if I call you my girlfriend?” and it was done.

How does that happen in grown up land?

Also- the word “Boyfriend” or “Girlfriend” just sounds so silly to me, as an adult.

I know that labels aren’t everything, but let’s face it- most of us (women…..) like the label. It just makes things easier when introducing your partner to someone or when you’re talking about them.

So assuming that we’re going to be labeling things, what the fuck do you do with a grown up relationship?
