Advice from three of EMandLO.com's guy friends. This week they answer the following: "What are the top 3 no-no's for a woman to do on a first date?" To ask the guys your own question, click here.
Committed Gay Guy (Dwayne):
1. talking about ex boyfriends
2. planning the wedding
Married Straight Guy (Jake): This is the kind of thinking that we need to break away from. There are no three top things, three best things, three worst things that will make your first date the best. Checklists that other people create for you can cause neurosis, unnecessary worrying and sweaty palms. This is a battered and bruised cliché, but seriously, just be yourself. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by acting, talking, eating and laughing naturally. Anything else is a waste of time.
Single Straight Guy (Megan): My most recent first date turned into four dates in the same day with the same woman. She broke quite a few rules from my style manual. She made fun of my cardigan. (I still

Bunny maskAdvice from three of EMandLO.com's guy friends. This week they answer the following: "Do guys ever have elaborate fantasies (Riding a white horse to a naked maiden? Being captured as a porn star's slave?), or do their fantasies tend to be more prosaic?" To ask the guys your own question, click here.Read More »from Do Men Have Elaborate Fantasies like Women Do?
Straight Engaged Guy (Mark Luczak): Guys' fantasies probably tend to be less Fabio-covered romance novel-esque, but that doesn't mean they necessarily lack in poetic beauty (yes, I had to double-check the definition of "prosaic" - I thought it was an antidepressant). Since we're stereotypically more strictly visual and to-the-point, our fantasies can run the wide range from "hot co-worker spontaneously jumping our bones" to "hot neighbor spontaneously jumping our bones" to "hot girl walking down the street spontaneously jumping our bones." If we really want to get elaborate, we'll mix in a porn star, or two.
Gay Single Guy (Daniel): I think guys can have very elaborate fantasies, but that
Consider this advice on what NOT to say on a first (or second or third or fourth or fifth...) date:
- You remind me of my ex.
- I can't stay out too late tonight -- the season finale of "The Bachelorette" is on.
- Cutco knives are so awesome.
- I only cry during rom coms...and right after sex.
- I should warn you, my penis is unusually large.
- Contraception is not okay. It's a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.
- I can't wait to show you my teddy bear collection.
- Just a sec, I have to text back my mom.
- The last novel I read? That one by Snooki.
- It's chilly, I should have worn my cape.
Cross dressingAdvice from three of Em & Lo's guy friends. This week they answer the following: "We read a lot about women who 'have sex like men.' What do you think it would mean to do it "like a woman'?"Read More »from What Does it Mean to Act like a Woman in Bed?
Straight Single Guy (Tom Miller): I think it just means liking to have your hair pulled. I kid. I think, very broadly stereotyping here, that a fella who wanted to do it like a woman would want to take things very slowly. Hours of foreplay followed by slow, rhythmic lovemaking, plenty of eye contact and scented candles. Afterwards there would be much cuddling. But, in real life, some ladies like it hard and fast and some guys want to O simultaneously and hold hands and collapse into tearful, sleepy embrasure. Allegedly, it's easier for dudes to do it without emotional connection, but who knows if that's true.
