At some point, every place you frequent will become corrupted by suburbanites.
In New York, for example, clubs and restaurants closed after “bridge and tunnel” traffic destroyed the vibe.
In Houston, business models take this kind of thing into consideration so it doesn’t really matter. I guess people in Manhattan thought they’d be better insulated, but Jersey was just a bridge away.
The divide between Suburban and Urban is much worse than jarring. It’s hysterical and getting worse it would seem.
Frames of reference are light years apart. In fact, everything about big city life sets whatever happens in Suburbia in another star system.
I guess it’s like going to war for the first time. Everything is shocking until it isn’t and then your just as screwed as the rest of us.
After a while this shit gets ridiculous.
The woman is obviously in her mid-40s, which is fine because she still looks great [but not in this photograph] for a hard-working middle-aged talk show host.
Generally speaking, I don’t care that people lie about their age.
But for someone like Handler who prides herself on coming clean about everything, and then demanding the same of her guests is beyond belief.
Now viewers focus more on the quality of her Botox injections than her performance.
Now she’s the brunt of the joke.
Gene Simmons’ “hair” is no longer a talking point.
Now everyone knows that the routine outing of guests is an effective ploy to deflect attention from herself.
I’d like to someone challenge her on the numbers, but I’m sure their appearance contract prohibits any mention of her age.
In the end, people would have far more respect for her if she just stopped embarrassing herself.
Yes, she can still attract the attention of young men — for a night, which is the crux of this whole thing: waning relevance.
Love the irony.
According to company sources, Lululemon is pulling some of its yoga pants off the shelves because they are “too sheer.” Apparently, its a “quality control issue” in the Asian factory that’s been manufacturing them since 2004.
Is anyone buying this SPIN?
Women like the pants! Specifically because they ARE see-thru! Because they ARE sexy! Because they get attention under the pretext of yoga wear, rather than stripper wear!
Manufacturing glitch my ass. These pants were specifically ordered by execs at Lulu to meet the growing demand for all things translucent.
It’s the perfect scapegoat for narcissistically-inclined [and much appreciated] yoga babes who enjoy parading their big round asses all over town, without coming across as street walkers [not that that would bother most us, either].
They can always count on the oh-so-subtle Lululemon logo to show vice cops when they pull over to ask for their I.D’s.
The only people complaining about this are middle age, frumpy housewives with divorce attorneys on speed dial.
Back in the day, Dr. Alfred Kinsey wrote “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male  and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female .
Both are landmark studies on human sexuality, and both vilified by people who thought he was totally full of shit.
His dissenters claim that he was a gay sadomasochist trying to twist his findings to validate his perversions.
And while this may be true, he was also the first person to formally document human sexual behavior through years of exhaustive research — no matter how fucked up he was, or wasn’t, as the case may be.
With this in mind, one of his more memorable constructs was the “7-Point Kinsey Scale of Sexuality,” which helped people figure out exactly how gay they were.
Here it is:
1 Exclusively heterosexual
2 Predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual
3 Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual
4 Equally heterosexual and homosexual
5 Predominantly homosexual, but more than incidentally heterosexual
6 Predominantly homosexual, only incidentally heterosexual
7 Exclusively homosexual
Using this scale, I’d say that of the roughly 238,574,670 people over the age of 18 living in the United States today, 100,000,000 fall somewhere in the vicinity of “3.”
This figure probably sounds conservative to you people living in big cities, but when you stop and consider the fact that a sizable chunk of the population is also stoned most of the time, they also fall into category “4″ without even realizing it.
More to the point, big cities play host to millions of aging narcissists who simply cannot find love through normal channels. This is because they are neither normal nor well adjusted, which means that relationships within their own age group and social demographic are of no interest to them.
So they tend to get used to defeated expectations, if this helps.
These guys expect to find young, beautiful, fit, educated, compassionate, nurturing, warm and affectionate women dying to love them for who they uniquely are, which is preposterous to anyone not suffering narcissistic personality disorder.
So time passes with no luck and the anxiety of perpetual loneliness grows. Eventually, it becomes unbearable and they start acting out…above or below ground.
And while some will launch a last ditch crusade to find an actual woman in the form of an art school student with an open mind – and usually, open emotional wounds – or just hang out around coffee shops among aspiring actresses, dancers and writers who would be better off institutionalized, they usually end up back at square one.
Can you really blame them for choosing men?
Hell prisoners do. And narcissists are merely prisoners of their own delusions.
The article – or set of bullet points – in the link above are representative of what many women feel represent double standards.
But everyone already knows women are assessed differently.
Blame them for that. Men just take what they’re given.
Here are the aforementioned bullet points from the article:
1] There is such a thing as a “real” woman and she is defined by “having curves,” which is not to be confused with “being fat,” and if you fall too far outside of that particular bell curve, you do not count as a “real” woman.
Comments: Such insecurity and projection and whining…and I could go on. Stay in shape and shut the hell up. If men don’t earn, they’re crucified as losers. We all have crosses to bear. If you don’t like the human food chain, buy your own island. Of course, if you allow men on it, you’ll eventually face the same issues.
2. There is something inherently wrong with you if you have slept with a certain number of people, and it must be the result of some former trauma or unfinished business you have.
Comments: Nobody gives a shit unless you do – and IF they do – marry someone else. You can also keep your mouth shut. If your point is that women should be afforded the right to fuck an entire metro area with impunity, I go back to the island concept. Even men can’t pull that off without being labeled a player. Cuts both ways.
3. There is something inherently wrong with you if you are insisting on remaining a virgin until marriage, or indefinitely, and it is something that can be rectified with “the right man.”
Comments: Crap. Nobody cares what the hell a woman decides to do with her body or life or anything else for that matter. There’s someone for everyone. Nobody gets affirmation on demand but narcissists who buy into their own delusions.
4. Bisexual women are simply “going through a phase” or “having a little fun,” and are doing it mostly for the attention of the men they are more attracted to.
Comments: Often true. Sometimes not. Generally speaking, though, the hottest women I have ever met tend to end up with men. The hottest men I have ever met, however, tend to end up with men [or just sleep with them on the side, since women aren’t as interested in the fantasy].
5. There is a direct correlation between the kind of clothes you wear and the amount of respect you deserve.
Comments: This is true regardless of gender. And while some men get away with dressing like crap, they are either celebrities or with women low self-esteem.
6. Men are entitled to sex with you after a certain amount of nice gestures, and if you remain uninterested after the right combination of activities and words, you are responsible for his unhappiness for being a cold bitch.
Comments: Wrong. Knock off the whining. If the guy is interested in more than sex, he’ll hang around. If not, he won’t. Men who are truly interested in more than a fuck are always willing to wait for the right woman.
7. You are “supposed to” enjoy and universally support any number of female artists and creators simply because she is female, and not because you actually identify with her work in any way.
Comments: Really? I get where you’re going, but in my world the women I know couldn’t care less. Of course, if I lived in San Francisco where political correctness is in the drinking water, I might buy it.
8. There is a certain amount of your worth as a person — and it’s significant — which is tied up in your relationship status.
Comments: I think there is merit here. I’m not sure it doesn’t cut both ways, but I generally agree that women who aren’t married by a certain point are judged as somehow defective.
9. You owe strange men on the street who call out to you and make you feel uncomfortable to smile at them and cheerfully dismiss their advances.
Comments: Most women I know use their middle fingers.
10. If you don’t smile, and you don’t make yourself as amicable as possible while getting away, you are guilty of being a frigid bitch.
Comments: By “getting away” I assume you mean disentangling yourself from a man in a sexual situation. This is always a difficult situation for men who cannot fathom why a woman would put herself in this situation if she weren’t interested in consummating the act. Men are usually thrown on the streets for refusing to go through with sex, and then labeled gay.
11. If you are too friendly, you’re leading them on.
Comments: If you are too friendly you are leading them on. Women know what they’re doing. So knock it off. You can’t have it both ways.
12. The vast majority of your value in dating someone is how good-looking you are. The other qualities you may or may not possess are rendered largely unimportant in the face of your physical beauty.
Comments: Physical beauty [which is defined differently by all men], opens the door. Once it’s opened the man expects all the other quality you failed to mention.
13. If you don’t look like a photo-shopped image of a model in a magazine, there is something inherently wrong with you, and not with the image.
Comments: Most men know the difference. But I do agree that two-dimensional reality is gaining on the other one.
14. If you spend enough money on beauty products, clothes, and haircuts, you will become as beautiful (and therefore as worthy) as said women in the magazines.
Wow. You’re really hung up on women as commodities. Just try living in my world where men without full financial teams to handle their assets and Net Jet contracts aren’t even noticed.
15. There is a “correct” course of action to take as a woman when you are in an abusive relationship, and if you don’t follow it to the letter, you are deserving of shame and mockery for not presenting a good example for other women.
Comments: This must be on of those girl-to-girl things, ‘cause it went right over my head.
16. It is every woman’s job to be a model of some kind for other women in her life.
Comments: It’s every man’s job to be a good father and provider for everyone tangential to his life.
17. If one woman acts a certain way, or engages in a certain behavior, she is a reflection on all women and not just herself and her personal choices.
Comments: Not true. I have never judged an entire gender on the behavior of one woman’s borderline personality disorder, though I do see a lot of it.
18. There are certain things that women should inherently want out of life, such as marriage and having children, and if you do not want those things there is something defective about you.
Comments: I am in a relationship with a woman much younger than me who has no interest in having children, so there must be something defective about me. You can just ignore it like the rest of us who fall outside the two standard deviations.
19. As a woman, the question you should be asking yourself as you enter your career is unquestionably “How do I have it all?” The underlying assumption is always that you want both a family life and a career, lest you be considered lazy or immature on either front.
Comments: No woman can have it all anymore than any man. No one is capable of everything in the absence of consequence…and there’s a lot of it.
20. There are certain choices we can make in life which are inherently more feminist than others, such as choosing to delay family life in order to have a high-powered career.
Comments: It is more “feminist” to choose a “high-powered” career over a more traditional role. So what?
21. Sex work is something dirty and shameful, and being an educated, hard-working, good person and being a sex worker are mutually exclusive.
Comments: “Dirty and shameful” aren’t adjectives I’d use, but adult entertainers tend to be a nightmare for most therapists.
22. There is a way to date and have sex and meet people, which is more moral and respectable than another.
Comments: Yea. You can date and have sex and meet people in other cities under an alias and Post Office Box.
23. Your sexuality should always be someone else’s business, and other people should get a say in the control you have over your own body.
Comments: If you’re referring to pregnancy due to intercourse, then yes, it involves two people and two decisions. Ultimately, though, it’s the woman’s choice whether or not to come to term, for better or worse.
24. If you are a take-charge person who is hard-working and demanding of others the way many men who are deeply respected in business might be, you are a bitch.
Comments: It is true that some women in authority are complete bitches. I agree with you.
An online survey of 5,481 singles ages 21 and older who are not in a relationship agreed to participate in a survey hosted by Market Tools Inc. for Match.com. The question for women and men was: List, in order of importance, the things you find most attractive in the opposite sex.
The results may surprise you.
10 things men judge women most on:
Having/not having a tat: 40%
The accent: 19%
The car they drive: 13%
Electronic devices they carry: 9%
10 things women judge men most on:
Have/not having tattoo: 34%
The car they drive: 24%
Their accent: 22%
Electronic devices they carry: 10%
So here’s the deal:
I have always considered nice teeth a big deal in the context of dating. But of equal importance is everything else.
For example, an obese woman with flawless teeth is far less appealing than a fitness model with slightly crooked teeth. You can work on the teeth. But it’s tough to work off 100 pounds.
Obesity is also an indication of poor lifestyle habits or mental illness. See, the teeth can be healthy without looking like the caption above. But nice teeth are also found on psychotics, which is an issue not addressed in the survey, but of equal importance; particularly in big cities where most of the insane live and date.
I happen to have some working knowledge in the area of mental health disorders, given the fact that I’ve spent the vast majority of my adult life in big cities playing serial monogamy, which could have been as little as an hour or two in many cases.
I tell men who are deep water fishing after years of marriage to otherwise normal, well adjusted women that what they drag out of the deep may have intended to be caught for reasons they need to know.
The women most available on the open market – without proper introduction – are either predators or psychotics working the margins on lithium and vodka.
No, this is not a negative perspective anymore than boot camp is bad for soldiers of foreign wars, so shut the fuck up.
It is not uncommon, for example, to discover that the charming woman you just met at a bar was at the same bar the night before with someone else, and the night before that at another place in town like bookies in a numbers racket.
This is the new normal. Get used to it.
Many of these woman are delusional narcissists, others just plain crazy.
This is what you’re up against and why you need to continue reading.
It is normal, for example, to have a two-hour conversation with a woman you just met over a bottle of wine without having the slightest idea what just transpired. You know you were on a date with someone, but it felt almost like a dream; like you were sitting there talking to yourself.
This is because you were.
If you had to answer a questionnaire you couldn’t tell me where the woman came from, what she really did for a living, or where the hell she just went, as opposed to home.
I have discovered that the best way to deal with such women is to get down to the basics, because the paper-thin narrative forces them to walk a fine line.
Ask them something like “when was your last dental appointment?”
This is something even they can’t scramble.
Then ask, “did you chose Zoom whitening, or just stick with tarter control toothpaste?
Now you’re on a roll. Pull a quick follow-up like, “I love your shoes. Where did you buy them?”
At this juncture she’ll become suspicious of your motives because you’ve just yanked her back into the reality trap, which is the last damn place she wants to be.
No self-respecting psychotic wants to be pinned down, and talking about her teeth and shoes feels like you’re trying to get through the backdoor of her psychopathology rather than buying into her dreamy noise.
One time I drew a line down the center of a page [in the middle of a date] and asked the woman to jot down five things she loved on the left, and five she hated on the right. She savaged an “x” down the center of the page, ripping through three sheets of paper, and walked out.
Of course she walked out! It’s supposed to be her game, not the other way around.
In a clinical sense, psychotics need reality of the hardcore kind, which is the last thing they want.
What they really want is as much affirmation as they can garner before they’re busted and have to move on to a softer target.
Remember, once you’re out of college and well into life the water gets very deep very quickly.
Keep your conversations simple, direct and focused if you want to know anything whatsoever about the person sitting next to you.
Of course, if you do try this strategy I’ll give you a 50-50 shot of making it past an hour before your date heads for the door…the same drill she pulls with her psychiatrist.
It’s in her nature, and your best interest, since you’re not her psychiatrist and aren’t dumb enough to pull a rescue mission no matter what her ass looks like.
Suzy Hamilton isn’t the only person on the planet with a double life.
Half my ex’s had at least three.
These days it’s easy assume a variety of identities while maintaining the same social security number.
You log on to the Internet as a man or a woman or member of the deceased reconnecting with loved ones, and soon the endorphin highs take over and your entire life becomes an Internet projection.
In essence, you become someone else.
Of course, there’s nothing new about this.
People have been playing this game since the Internet was first available to the public.
Back then we imagined a morbidly obese man without a shot in hell of getting laid without a crowbar and a motive sitting in front of a computer chatting with chatting up some young woman who thinks he’s an 18-year-old athlete.
This became the stereotype for such behavior.
But today we see attractive 40-year-old attorneys with husbands, kids and country club memberships pretending to be sex addicts in financial trouble.
Now the persona’s have legs three dimensions, which is a big deal in the context of collective evolution and why a meteor strike might not be the worst thing.
Anonymity has become our new world drug, replacing even therapy.
With this in mind, whenever I’m introduced to someone new, I just assume that the person I don’t see is infinitely more entertaining.
By the time you reach middle age and your off hours are spent cavorting with women in and around big cities, just know that motive generally supersedes lust.
In other words, while some will express an interest in getting to know you, it may have more to do with your spending habits.
With this as a backdrop, might I suggest you sink your teeth into the following before your penis hijacks your life:
1] Her full legal name.
Notes: This is easier said than done when you’re dealing with people who have things to hide, like identity, which eludes even them with so many aliases over so much time.
Nonetheless, no matter what they tell you, if the information doesn’t check out on paid Internet database searches, you already know anyway.
2] Her place of birth.
Notes: If she tells you she’s from an obscure town in the middle of nowhere and you’re on a date with her in the middle of Los Angeles, you’ll want to know what she’s doing in Los Angeles. If it’s not a corporate transfer, it’s dirt.
3] Her family of origin.
Notes: This is a sensitive subject for some given the vagaries of loose genetics, but you want to know what her parents do [or did] for a living? Their divorce status. How many times? Siblings? If so, what do they do, and where?
It’s amazing to me how many divorced friends go out on dates with women they know nothing about, but are convinced they’ve finally found THE ONE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH. There are also bones in the rough, which people keep digging up without suspicion because a perfect round ass triggers an automatic suspension of disbelief.
Notes: Does she have a college degree? If so, was it obtained online, or did she physically attend classes at Dartmouth? I know women with multiple degrees from top universities who got in with a credit card and an Internet connection.
5]Facebook or other social media profile [s].
Notes: You will need their usernames if for whatever reason [s] they use a non-du plume, which is not uncommon with women who have stalkers, including ex-husbands who want their kids back.
6] Employment status and company name.
Notes: “Between jobs” is a red flag unless they have a game plan that sounds like something other than an improvisation.
Non-Red Flag: I recently lost my job in Human Resources at ABC Tool Company due to downsizing. But they gave me a great severance package and letters of recommendation.
Red Flag blowing in hurricane force winds: I was tending bar while attending community college in Florida and the next thing you know I was here.
7] Physical mailing address.
Notes: “Between addresses” is a red flag unless they’re in a witness protection program or a stripper. Most people have physical addresses, unless they just moved to a new city, in which case they already have a place to stay before they find a place they want to live, so find out where they’re staying – and with whom.
Notes: If they say something like “skiing in Aspen,” it’s the same thing as giving you a fake name, unless their parents have a home in the area, which is doubtful and why you need to ask before you end up like the rest of the men in their wake.
9] Cultural literacy.
Does the name Shakespeare mean anything to you?
10] Clinical diagnosis.
Note [s]: Some women will just come out and tell you they’re bi-polar as though it gives them relevance and charm. Others will flip the conversation and insinuate that you’re the psychopath. With crazy people you never know where the shit’s going to fly, and since cities are crazy magnets, you’re always at war on some level.
