Some hysterical memes about the differences between men and women

brightside 13

People always send me memes about the differences between men and women.  Some of them are too raunchy to post, but this one was (fairly) tame and made me laugh out loud.  Mostly because A) it fits so well with my research but also B) because I see myself and Jeff in so many of [Read More...]

Dads, we know you love your daughter.  And you know you love your daughter.  But you might be surprised at much she needs to hear it.  In the research with teens and preteens for For Parents Only, I found that these four phrases have a lot more impact than you might think.  And as you’ll [Read More...]

Ladies, do you know how to support your normal, visually-wired husband in this abnormal culture? 4 actions that matter

1. Show him you’re someone he can talk to about it. Regardless of where your man lands on the visual temptation spectrum, a calm conversation is the starting point.  But many men are hesitant to talk, since they are convinced their wives will never understand – or, worse, will be hurt.  So no matter what you’re [Read More...]

Why is it that MEN always seem to be the ones who look at porn and cheat?

Why is it always men who look at porn, hide things, and cheat?  I’m a single woman, and I can’t help but notice that in the news last week, the one thing Josh Duggar and most of the Ashley Madison cheaters have in common is that they are all men.   Supposedly, even the few women on the hacked Ashley Madison site were fake profiles, just to reel in all those men out there who want to cheat.  It is crazy.  It makes me think women are just inherently more trustworthy.  Part of me still wants to meet someone, but how can I ever trust any guy again?

You’re the researcher, so please tell me the real answer: How often do guys need to have sex? I just don’t think about sex much; I guess it isn’t a need for me.

But if I knew how often a man needs sex I could plan on that, and hopefully that would help. [Read more...]
