Do you think it’s easy to get the woman of your dreams? One of my buds is the most shredded guy you’ll ever meet and is still looking for his one and only. Another one of my friends is successful and owns an expensive luxury car, yet wishes he was married, and can’t find a […]
The Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin recently published a study showing men were attracted to responsive women, but women aren’t attracted to responsive men. And everyone recites, “Good guys never win.” Does this mean women are attracted to jerks? How do these study results compare to other relationship studies? And most importantly, do good guys need […]

He loses two seconds out of his own day to help a woman with a stroller go down a flight of stairs. He asks the cashier, “How is your day?” with a smile. He acknowledges the janitor at work with a friendly, “Hello.”
Recently I saw a tweet describing the site as a “modern Disney version to blind the eyes of girls with so-called Prince Charming”..when did Prince Charming become the villain? The alternative is being a prick or passive.
If you’ve been to this site a few times, you might be drawn by the same ideals that have brought me here. I want to be this good guy, but for some reason, this ideal has been elusive for me.
