Decided to re-post this since I had a little crying fit myself last night!:
A new adult dating study out of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, and published recently in Science magazine, says that women’s tears shut down male sexual desires.
Female tears contain pheromones, which are chemical signals excreted in order to communicate with others. Their very existence has been much debated, but this study is more proof that they do indeed exist.
In this study, women watched sob-inducing movies all by their lonesomes and then caught their tears in vials. (This sounds like some weird set up for a bad sex novel). Later, men sniffed either the real tears of jars of saline that had been dripped down the women’s cheeks. Men who sniffed tears found the pictures of the women’s faces to be less sexually attractive than the men who sniffed saline, but both had similar feelings of empathy.
In a different experiment, men sniffed tears or saline and then reported on how sexually aroused they were. Again, the tear-sniffers were less aroused.
And finally, researchers stuck tears or saline up to the noses of a group of other men and then scanned their brains with MRIs; similarly, the tear-sniffers showed much lower levels of activity in the parts of their brain controlling sexual arousal.
Attempted explanation by science people: this is an evolutionary adaptation to lower aggression, increase social bonding and so on. Whatever the case, sex and crying don’t go together.

If you are among the single men looking to enter the Adult dating world consider patience first. The Adult dating world isn’t just about a bunch of people that want to fuck all the time it’s about people trying to satisfy a certain need. You have to determine whether that is what you really want. For instance you could be in a place where romance is what you want but you are just horny at the moment. You’d be better off just using porn to get rid of the urge. Then you wouldn’t have to worry about the entanglements you are going to make. If you are making the wrong decision you are getting entangled with things that will be difficult at best to get out of. Read more »

The Adult dating sites that are available online are just chock full of attractive people, all looking for other nice and attractive people to spend time with whether it be time spent dating, chatting, having a romance, or having hot sex together. So where do we take our hot date when we connect with someone on one of the sites and actually make plans to meet them in person?
Some people like to stick to the safe and secure coffee date in a well lighted public place for their first dates. Others like to be a little bit more adventurous, especially if they feel that there is a potential for a sexual connection, and they go for a dinner date or a date to meet for drinks. Wherever we go, it is important to pick a place that is not so happening that we can not hear a word that the other person says. Yes, taking them somewhere trendy may be somewhat impressive and show them that you made an effort, but how will you get to know them if you can not interact with them?
Truly, there really is no perfect place for a first date, just as there is really no horrible place for a first date. When we come down to it, we will either have good romantic and sexual chemistry between the two of us or we will not. These are the things that can not be faked, forced or coaxed into existence no matter how hard we may try. The location that we chose will always take a secondary position to our feisty pheromones and our deep gut feelings so it is best not to get too stressed out about trying to pick the perfect location.
So go where you will. Be polite, be well groomed, be honest and most importantly be yourself and the rest will work out exactly the way that it is supposed to.

A lot of people, especially young women, have a fixed image in their head of the type of person they want to end up with. We’ve all heard about little girls fantasizing about their weddings; well this is similar. Young men and women usually have a “type” fixated into their minds of what type of person they believe they will end up with. Whether it is certain specific physical attributes like “having dark hair” or “being taller than me”, what they do for a living like “high powered attorney at law” or “paramedic”, or certain specific personality characteristics like “hilarious” or “well read” would you be ready to accept someone into your private life that did not meet these previous expectations?
These expectations are usually based on media influences in our lives, but what if you find yourself falling for someone who you never thought you’d end up with. Is it a deal breaker in your eyes?
Barbara, a 29 year old single mother and social worker had been checking out an adult dating site for about three weeks when a man named Brian messaged her. They chatted back and forth non-stop for about five hours, but Barbara was surprised when she finally clicked on his profile and saw that he was Korean.
“I always assumed I’d end up with a white guy,” Barbara said. “That’s just what I pictured.”
For many women, race –just like age — can be a major deal breaker because of internalized ideas of what our future partner will look like and be like. If you feel like you fall into this category, it may be time to start considering every option – not just the options who you feel suit you.
For example, the next time you’re on a dating site, check off all the boxes in the search engine when it asks you what type of man/woman you are looking for. Just because you’ve never dated an Indian woman before doesnt mean she wouldnt make an amazing girlfriend. Just because you’ve never dated an Asian man before doesnt mean he wouldnt be great hubby material.
The above statistics were taken from a popular online dating site. They illustrate how race has an affect on who we decide to message and respond to online.

It is never a good feeling to have, but it does happen. You’re finally dating a man that you genuinely like – possibly even love – and you get the feeling he doesn’t feel the same way. Maybe its the fact the he just got out of a long term relationship, or he is in some way still in contact with his ex. These following steps may shed some light on whether he is over his ex or not. Keep in mind, these are just possibilities – NOT hard facts.
1: If he’s constantly texting her.
If your man is in contact with his ex on a regular basis it does not mean he still has feelings. If he is constantly checking his phone to see if she has messages or refuses to show you the texts if you ask to see what they are talking about then you may have a problem on your hands.
2: If they attend a wedding together.
Okay, so they used to date for a while and probably have a lot of mutual friends who are getting married. It only makes sense that they attend the wedding as each other’s plus ones. However, if the thought of them dancing together, drinking together and possibly spending the night together makes your stomach turn than your should mention this to your man. If he has any sense at all he will take you as his date to the wedding.
3: If he talks bad about her.
Of course you don’t want to hear your man sing praises about his ex, however if he is constantly bad mouthing her that may be a defense mechanism on his part. Maybe his ex hurt him and he never fully got over it. Maybe his lashing out about her is his way of secretly saying he misses her. The point is, he is with you and you should be the only woman on his mind.
4: If he screams her name during sex.
Kidding, This is an obvious one.

A major step in an adult dating relationship is making the mutual decision to meet each others parents/ family. Meeting the family of the man or woman you are dating means your relationship is taking a fairly serious turn. Depending on your age – most young relationships go through the process of ‘meeting the parents’ much sooner than others, therefore it has a lesser meaning than, say, a couple in their mid 20s – this relationship ritual can be a very serious, sacred and meaningful thing.
Meeting the parents can also be nerve wracking. What if his mother doesn’t like you? What if her father doesn’t think you are good enough for his ‘baby girl’? There are so many “what ifs” what will be filtering in and out of your head before you actually meet your partner’s family. Try not to get too caught up in it. Over thinking has the potential to ruin any situation; it also has the potential to get an individual all worked up over nothing. Sure, you are making a first impression on the one person you love’s parents, but the best thing you can do is be yourself. If your partner loves you for being yourself, his/her parents should be able to see the same person.
Always be polite, always offer to help out in the kitchen, with cleanup aka doing the dishes. Always be social, and answer questions with more than one word answers. Make conversation with your partner’s parents, don’t treat it like an awkward job interview. Remember, ‘the parents’ want their child to be happy, and to find someone to spend the rest of their lives with (even if that’s not where you are, parents are always expecting grandchildren), but this doesnt mean they aren’t looking for ANYTHING negative about you to talk about after the visit. And even if you show a shining example of yourself, they will probably have SOME sort of criticism. But that’s what parents are for. Criticizing the things we love the most.
That was a joke – sort of. Just have fun and be respectful.
Bonus Tip: Bring a gift with you. A nice bottle of wine or expensive chocolates should do the trick.

We asked a bunch of men what the grosses thing their adult dating partner has ever done to them or in front of them etc. Here are some of this hilarious and disgusting responses we got.
“Once I invited my girlfriend to come shower with me in hopes of having sex. Instead she showered normally and decided to pee in front of me. She justified it by saying she was saving water.”
“I usually enjoy massaging my girlfriend’s feet, but one day when she lifted those puppies up onto my lap I couldn’t even touch them. They were covered in callouses. No PedEgg would be able to save her.”
“I was fast asleep in bed with my girlfriend. She got up to go to the bathroom and broke wind REALLY loud while walking to the other room. It was so loud that it woke me up and the stench lingered in the air for hours; I couldn’t fall back asleep.”
“One day my girlfriend and I happened to be in the same area around lunchtime so we decided to meet up for lunch and have a quickie. she went to the washroom first and met up with me right after. Everything was going fine until I flipped her over and saw toilet paper stuck to her bum, with, remnants on it”.

Dating is fun, especially during the first few stages of it. You and your partner are still in the “Honeymoon Stage” and everything is all hunky-dory. It is easy to forget about certain aspects and parts of your life that were once top priority. I’m writing this to tell you NOT to forget about these things – because being on the receiving end of it sucks.
Don’t Forget About Your Friends.
Friendships are important and necessary. Your friends will always be there for you during good times and bad. Sure, the new love in your life is probably your best friend but your true friends are the ones who can keep you stable when your life is spinning out of control.
Dont Forget About Your Partner.
Remember that they are a person too, with a past and a dream and a goal for their life. Pick your battles and don’t criticize everything they do. Sure, it isn’t ideal to have to answer their drunken phone calls or listen to what happened at their bad day at work, but you have to do these things. He/She is your partner. Love them.
Don’t Forget About Your Goals.
Pursue what you’ve always wanted to. A boyfriend/girlfriend should never come in the way of a good career opportunity, and if your partner really loves you he/she will understand that. You can’t put “awesome and caring boyfriend” on your resume.
Don’t Forget About Your Health.
Biology rules don’t change when you’re in a monogamous relationship. Stay healthy, keep working out and eating properly, stay protected and always always proceed with caution.

Don’t Be Too Passive
Men like taking the aggressive role in relationships, but being with a women who doesn’t EVER try to be the aggressor can be a huge turnoff. Being passive-aggressive and agreeing with everything your dating partner says will get you no where in that relationship, and in life in general.
Slow Response Time
If it takes you forever to respond to email, texts etc. because you are genuinely busy – then ignore what I’m about to say. If you purposely wait a certain amount of time to respond to a text because you don’t want to seem too eager, you could still be hurting yourself. It may seem as if you are uninterested, which will turn him off in a second.
Teasing your man with dirty texts, saucy pictures, and talk of what you would like to do with him is all well and good. But the whole point of teasing is that finally there is a “give in” point. Then the sex begins. Thats how it is supposed to happen – everyone knows that. But if your constantly tease your man and never give in, he will eventually grow bored and find someone else. I know it sounds harsh, but thats life.
If you are constantly “busy” for dates or having to reschedule as an attempt to make him think you actually have a life outside of work and Facebook lurking, then think again. This attempt to make yourself look cool will only backfire in the end. You have to put effort into building a relationship, and if you aren’t willing to do your part, he wont want to do his.
Being Too Vague
No one expects you to divulge into every deep detail of your life, especially when you’ve first started seeing someone, but there is something annoying about being way too vague about every detail in your life. Its not mysterious and sexy, its kind of creepy.

Recently in celebrity news, Ashlee Simpson reportedly drunk dialed her ex-husband and baby-daddy Pete Wentz claiming how much she missed him and how much she wanted to get back together with him.
Drunk dialing never leads to a positive outcome,. Whether you decide to drunk dial a friend for a quick sex session, an ex dating parter confessing your undying love, or an enemy because you feel full of liquid courage it is never a good idea. If you know you are prone to drunk dialing, you should really try your best to use any help out there that will stop you in your drunken tracks.
If you have an iPhone you can download an app called Beer Goggles. This app will block you from making phone calls to certain numbers past a certain time at night (assuming you are drunk). I highly suggest you download this app of you are prone to drunk dialing.
The problem with people who like to drunk dial is exactly that – they LIKE to drunk dial. They know its wrong, but they still seek joy in doing it. They know they are causing shit but when they’re drunk they just don’t care.
