the perfect man is equal parts sex and kindness.
hey dudes if your main seduction technique is taking off your shirt in public we’re not gonna get along
“I like you so much that I’m going to make you think I hate you to hide my overwhelming embarrassment about liking anyone”
When considering a partner to engage in an adult relationship, most ladies list “having a job,” “having reliable transportation” or “is emotionally available” pretty close to the top of their hypothetical checklist. At this point, “having a dog” is resting comfortably at the top of MY list because I miss having a pet SO SO SO much. I’m easy to please, I guess.
the perfect guy is equal parts sex and kindness.
Any time in a relationship any of you feel yourselves thinking “Well, I should probably have sex with now or else s/he’ll be mad and mean to me,” take it as a giant sign that something is Not Okay, and start thinking about how to get yourself to a safe place that is Away. Even if Away is the next room by yourself with a door closed where you can hear yourself think.
REAL TALK: honestly if you’re a dude and you happen to be a total shit head just learn how to give a really good compliment and you’ll get away with SO much when it comes to dealing with ladies. or maybe just me.
a committed, open-fart relationship
