Men Tell Us: Why Men Keep Telling Women To “Smile”

Men Tell Us: Why Men Keep Telling Women To "Smile"

Raise your hand if you hate it when strange men on the street tell you to smile. Everyone, yes? All our hands are raised? Perhaps because it’s always distracting to be interrupted when you’re thinking seriously about something (and hence, not smiling). Perhaps it’s because it’s rude to demand that a total stranger do anything for you (though I frequently go up to men and say “do the Charleston! Now a two-step!”). Perhaps because it immediately makes you feel guilty for not walking around lighting the world up with your smile, because, again, you were thinking about serious stuff.

And surely men know that women don’t like this, right? No one likes the smile police! But it happens all the time. So why do men keep doing it? I turned the question over to our man-panel More »

Men Tell Us: If They Want To Date Models

Men Tell Us: If They Want To Date Models

Fashion week is coming up! Your boyfriend is probably going to leave you for Kate Moss! Your life is going to resemble a terrible Adam Sandler movie!

No, no, that’s not going to happen. Good talk, though. And Kate Moss seems like a pretty okay person, so I’m not sure how much wacky mayhem would occur. I mean, she’d have to get divorced so it would… not be an Adam Sandler movie. But, given that men do seem to like dating really beautiful women, do they secretly fantasize about dating a model? Would they ditch their current girlfriend for a model if they could? Would your boyfriend ditch you for a model?

I mean, probably not, but lets see how paranoid you should be. We polled our male friends – and we tried to get as many who have dated models as possible – on why dating models is appealing/completely unappealing. More »

Men Tell Us: Why They Love Titanic

Look, we’ve spent the entire week hating on Titanic. Blah, blah, blah, Cal seems perfectly nice, blah, blah, everyone could have lived if she got on the stupid lifeboat, blah, blah, blah, why can’t we have Waldorf Pudding for dinner, OH JESUS GOD WE CAN? But we’re pretty cold (like, ice water cold) and dead of heart, so we checked in with the gentler sex to see if they are super psyched about the Titanic 3D re-release. Here is what our male friends had to say: More »

Men Tell Us: If They Would Ever Date Outside Their Race (Happy MLK Day)

Men Tell Us: If They Would Ever Date Outside Their Race (Happy MLK Day)

Martin Luther King Day has us reflecting upon how far we’ve come in terms of race in America. Are we judging people on the content of their character and not the color of our skin? What about when it comes to interracial dating? We asked our man panel whether they’d ever dated outside their race, and, well, maybe we haven’t come that far after all.

(Though we should note that the majority of our man panel is Caucasian, and it would be interesting to see a study where this was not the case). More »
