Hi.

We're just like you.  We connected through an online dating service--OK Cupid, to be exact.  Our first date was at a fun Seattle tapas-and-sangria bar.  We fell in love.  We are engaged to be married.  We know that you, too, can find love.  Let us help you.

If You Want a Real Man, Don't Be a "Girl"

If You Want a Real Man, Don't Be a "Girl"

It's a common enough complaint that we hear from many dating women:  They just cannot seem to find a real man.

The men--or guys or boys or whatever they want to be called--they meet are too wrapped up in bromancing each other to be interested in girl-mancing.  It's all about them and "the boys," out clubbing or at the pub or at sports events.  They don't commit.  They still live in filthy shared apartments with 3 other guys.  They're too obsessed with cars, Star Wars collectibles, TV, video games, beer, and playing the field to want to become a real man.

Where are all of those settled, solid men who want commitment, love, and even a family some day?

On women's dating profiles, we continually see 50 year-old women claiming to be girls.  What gives?

P.J. O'Rourke was hired by The Daily Beast to write about the patron saint of all girl-women, Lena Dunham.  He expresses surprise that a person who has legally been an adult for the last decade should call herself a girl:

Ms. Dunham is 28. I was under the impression that “girls” is a demeaning term for adult women. The title must have something to do with this hipster “Irony” thing, which I confess I don’t understand. The root of the word irony is in the Greekeironeia, “liar.”

The one takeaway:  In your dating profile, change every instance of "girl" to "woman."  It's a small change.  Nothing will happen right away.  The skies will not open up.

But it's a bit like the man-child Steve Carell character in The 40 Year Old Virgin who, towards the end of the movie, makes one tiny change--boxing up his action figures--as a signifier of his life-change into manhood.
