Think guys have a one-track mind when it comes to sex? Think again. These dudes confessed the between-the-sheets worries your man will never share.
Guys' Bedroom Fear: He's Not Big Enough
The fact that a lot of guys look at porn every once in a while is hardly a secret, but all that browsing can lead to a bruised ego. "Porn stars are often well-endowed, and it's only natural to compare your goods with the ones you see on-screen," says Lyle, 33. "Most guys can't help but feel they are on the smaller side and not big enough when in bed with a girl."
Guys' Bedroom Fear: You Won't Like His Body
You're not the only one concerned about bulges and soft spots. Nearly all the guys we talked to admitted to having some serious body insecurities. "I don't have sculpted shoulders or a buff chest, and a lot of girls like that, so getting naked can be intimidating," says Dan, 27.

So you're dating Hottie McHotterson and things are going pretty swell. You're probably living together and ready for something more. How do you know when you're both ready to introduce a pet into that lovey dovey relationship you've got going on now? There are six important things to consider before you guys take the next step together.
Of course I'm bringing this up for my own selfish reasons: J and I are talking about getting a dog. We've been cohabiting for almost a year (come October) and starting to talk about getting engaged, moving into a bigger place, and bringing a pet into the family we're starting (no, not all at once). There's just one problem. I'm super spontaneous and would get the dog NOW but he's weighing every single option and being responsible (whatever), making us wait another year or two. Plus we're fighting about what kind of dog to get (me: French bulldog, him: cocker spaniel). So I thought it was best to go through a little pet
I can't escape it, it's in the news every day, and it fills my counseling office. Yesterday, the news told of a four-year-old who was shot to death by his own father, because the father was jealous of his divorced wife's new relationship. "O, beware... of jealousy; it is the green-eyed monster" wrote William Shakespeare in the sixteenth century. In four hundred years, we don't seem to have been able to tame or conquer this monster. Jealousy is still very present with us, and rears its ugly head often in all relationships. It disturbs me that so many people seem to think it's OK to be jealous, so I thought it might be valuable to explore it.
What Is Jealousy?
The experts differ about the nature of the monster. "Jealousy," writes sex researcher Arno Karlen in Threesomes, "can mean as many things as love or intimacy. It involves various combinations of fear, suspicion, envy, rage, competitive failure, humiliation, grief, self-contempt, betrayal, and abandonment.

Has your man ever taken a lesson from Matthew McConaughey's characters?Oh, yes. You didn't think we'd let the men get off easy, did you? Heck no. Though I suspect that the male gender's collective pulse doesn't get too heated over being represented right in chick flicks, I think we, as lifelong fans of men, can safely say there's some stuff they just. Don't. Do.
That being said-I think my favorite part of writing this post will probably end up being you ladies hollering if your man has pulled a move straight out of Matthew McConaughey's playbook. Don't be stingy with the stories!
Without further ado... here are some things I've pretty much only seen two-dimensional men do.
1. Have access to their apartment building roof and a no-shame flair for twinkle-light stringing.
2. Give each other tips on dancing, flirting, and kissing.
3. Make denying that love even exists their "thing."

Lying is bad, obvs. But on a few occasions, the truth just gets you into unnecessary trouble. Here are a few harmless occasions in which we think it's perfectly fine to fudge the truth to your man:
1. Those weird noises I was making in my sleep? Of course it was a dream about you, babe. (It was my ex, oops. I'm so over him but you can't control your unconscious brain! Um, right?!)
2. No, this top isn't new. You just don't remember because I haven't worn it in a while. (Hello, there was a sale. I had to buy it. Luckily he didn't notice my new shoes too.)

3. I'm really excited to visit your mom this weekend. (The next six holidays are with my non-passive aggressive parents, buddy.)
4. Of course I never talk to my friends about our sex life. Or comment about it on Smitten. (Listen, a girl's gotta vent or get advice sometimes.)
As if divorce wasn't hard enough, a study by the University of Chicago found that divorced people suffered more long-term physical health problems than those who married once and stayed married.

Sure, it can be a little intimidating to approach a dude, but it puts you in control of your dating destiny, and besides - guys really like it. "Men find it refreshing when a female asks them out," Says Rhonda Findling, psychotherapist and author of The Dating Cure. "Beyond that, it's empowering for the woman." Some tips...
Buy Him a Drink
If a guy catches your eye while you're out with friends, send over a beer. Since it forces him to make the next move and say thank you, it's a stealth way of letting him know you're interested.

We've all heard of the phrase "I love you but I'm not in love with you." Hopefully it wasn't being said to you. It's a hard thing to let someone down, especially a person that cares for you more than you care for them. What does this phrase mean? Moreover, how can you express this sentiment to someone you care for deeply while causing the least amount of pain? We'll explore some key ideas that can help you break the news as easily as possible:
Love: Humans need to give and receive love for emotional and physical reasons. In fact, there have been studies in orphanages that show physical contact is vital to well-being. Babies who are not held or nuzzled enough will literally stop growing, even if they are receiving proper nutrition. Literally loving one another is crucial to our overall wellness. Fortunately, mutual loving can be exchanged between close friends, family members and beloved pets. You don't have to be exclusively romanticRead More »from How to Break Up Without Breaking Them Down
From the "weekend cheater" to the "dirt-bag cheater," authors Maxwell Billieon and Ray J identify the various types of unfaithful men so you don't waste your time. From Death of the Cheating Man: What Every Woman Must Know about Men Who Stray.
The "Corporate" Cheater
This is the guy who utilizes his job as his cheating grounds. He finds women that are accessible on his job and business trips. He is normally found to have affairs with his assistant, secretary, or his female business affiliates and uses corporate trips as his cheating portal. A very efficient man, he may often have his side woman help disguise his movements.

One of the most common cheaters…this cheater is foolishly obvious with his infidelities as he usually learns his cheating skills socially from discussing his exploits with other novice cheaters. When caught with another woman, which shouldn't be at all surprising, he will always extol that the guy a woman believes she's

Fall is basically here. For guys, it's a magical time of year. Each Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, a dude gets to wallow in the sheer, unbridled ecstasy of following his favorite football team. Nothing brings him greater joy and satisfaction than seeing his squad of eleven helmeted gladiators scratch out victories during football season. And I'm sure you've also been witness to his devastation... evidenced by your man's vacant look and glassy eyes after a loss.
Here's the best way to describe the male connection to football-- it's sort of like a soap opera for men. There are multiple stories, with outrageous characters, good guys, bad guys, cliffhangers and the inevitable conclusion.
I'm writing this to prepare you for the next five months. Many of you are football fans yourselves (including many of the GalTime Gals-- don't worry, we'll do another post for diehard female fans), but for those ofRead More »from Tips for Getting Through Football Season
