I wonder why women go to all the trouble!

Sex Secrets All Men Keep - 1 - Â*Lifestyle - MSN CA

Is having a bigger house and somebody to fix things that important?

Another article that is obviously skewed toward one gender when both genders are guilty. Just wasting space.

Sounds like a lot of work to me. Thanks for the reality check. I think the article is gender-biased, too. Sadly, women are struggling with the same issues. Just goes to show us that we have to be careful who we commit to--male or female. Honesty, even if it hurts, is a big one for me. Could further explain why I am single.

This article is speaking to the really really dumb women.. the whole tone of it is typical of the modern trend of "men are losers" why? oh because they have hairy backs, they like to watch naked women, and a slew of other normal stuff like having a messy apartment, and talking to their mom. The trick is now for guys to just see through this crap. Yes, I know the author is male, but he works for the magazine. Women's Health and many other major woman-targeting companies like Maybellene use this tone towards the women they are targeting in their campaigns.

I would like a guy that could fix things. Modern "men" suck at that. My father's generation practically everyone had some sort of fix-it know how. Men under 40...forget about it.

Hmm last porn my s.o. looked at...the playboy with marge simpson on the cover...but it was for marge. LOL

Guys do compare...random drunken blurting: " you know..everyone I dated had huge boobs" as the drunkenly leer through a bleery set of newbie drinker eyes.

jerking it - oh yeh..such a liars. Keep you damn hands off my conditioner bottles perverts.

past loves? Well there are only 2 and I can beat them up..bring it on...I woudl have to fight a shortie and a christian. Yeh..I can take em. My boobs are bigger

Faithful for life? : He actually said he wanted to marry the first person he slept with. I looked at him like he was crazy. Maybe its the catholic influence.

The writer of that article is trying really hard to scare girls away from men.

Something tells me this is "McCarthy's" number one fantasy.

What?
One of the worst article on sex/relationship I've read so far.

My experience...

What he's hiding: The number of women he's had sex with

I doubt it. Unless he's aiming for more.

What he's hiding: He looks at porn — maybe a lot

Not surprised here. I already knew this. In fact, sometimes I watch it with him.

What he's hiding: He compares you to his last girlfriend

All I have to do is pay attention to know this.

What he's hiding: He still masturbates — probably more than you think

Already know this.

What he's hiding: He's been talking to at least one past love online
Already know this because he tells me.

What he's hiding: He's afraid he won't be able to stay faithful for life
Already know this, again by just paying attention. I've observe that he only thinks this when we're doing the long distance thing. Which can be understandable. Distance is hard on a lot of couples, but cheating is unacceptable to me and he knows it.

What he's hiding: He wants sex twice as much as he's having it with you
Already know this too.

What he's hiding: He flirts with someone he works with
I highly doubt it because he works with mostly men, and the few women there are married with kids.

What he's hiding: He's fantasized about a guy — and maybe acted on it

haha I doubt all straight men do this. If this were the case, it could be applied to women too, and I've never fantasized about another woman.

I couldn't do anything but skim through that article. Looks like a pile of rubbish.

What people seek, they find and I think if women are always suspicious and impose this "you're hiding something" on a guy, they probably will end up hiding something and it could be very benign due to the fact no one likes to answer for everything they do every minute of the day.

Women look inwards towards their relationships and are constantly worried about controlling that. I think they can take it too far to their detriment.

As an observer, one thing I observe in failing relationships is that people never give their partners any private space or room to breath and hence lack trust. By constantly existing in a belief something untrustworthy is going on, they create the environment themselves.
