And realize nice girls don't do this, mainly because they don't have to. Don't Date Gold Diggers Why do I even have to put this on a list? I work in a pretty dude dominated bar in Midtown Manhattan. You can jack off into a towel and not only is it cheaper but it's probably got more of a personality than women who use men for money.

Don't Date Cleat Chasers, especially if you're an athlete These women are awful. They live in Arizona or LA or Miami, they're blonde and tiny. You don't have to date every platonic girl friend you have. Realize that sometimes the person who knows you the best through friendship might be the chick who will see the best in you when you need it in a relationship.

For example, if a bird-loving wife points out to her husband that a goldfinch just flew landed in a nearby tree, he can turn away" from her by dismissing the remark or "turn toward" her by sharing her enthusiasm.
As Emily Esfahani Smith reported in the Atlantic, the results of the "bids" are staggering: in one of Gottman's studies of marriage, couples who divorced after six years had the "turn toward" reply 33% of the time, and the couples that were still together had the "turn toward" 87% of the time. Andrews psychologist David Perrett and his colleagues found that some people are attracted to folks with the same hair and eye color of their opposite-sex parents, as well as the age range they saw at birth.
"They later reported they had increased feelings of passionate love and affection towards the other person," Scientific American reports.
"This suggests that long periods of eye contact can connect you to someone and even ignite feelings of love inside you for that person you have never previously met." Starting — and growing — a relationship seems to largely depend on how people attend to one another.
But for the life of me, some of you guys pick the worst vaginas ever to lock it up with, and I can't understand why. These women are like their own personal cottage industry.

You have to know that the girl you are gonna be with, maybe even marry, was there before she really had a reason to BE there (relationship wise).
Hell, I call my guy friends when I need a heart to heart or a pick me up after a dude turns into a total butthead. I've heard horror stories about women who hours after saying I do, are going off the paranoia deep end accusing their husband of hitting on bridesmaids, or getting angry over Maxim Magazine subscriptions, or spending their husband's money on things like bags shoes and clothes at rates that made the dudes from "Wolf of Wall Street" look frugal. Just don't be the guy who, once the real girl comes out, goes into denial that the level of normalcy she presented pre-ring was as real as that pair of fake boobs you bought her. Don't Date Chicks That Can't Hang I'm a dude's girl. I scream at my TV during playoffs, I talk about baseball and hockey, my guy friends talk about blow jobs and farts around me, I take shots and I dance awkwardly. She doesn't need to drink beer or be a bro, but you know that scene in "My Best Friend's Wedding" where Cameron Diaz's character is uncomfortable at the karaoke bar, and then all of a sudden she sings a song so badly but everyone cheers and she gets so into it and has the most fun ever?
