Guys And Dolls

WordPress, I told you I’d be back, within a week no less.

I saw this photo the other day, and I can’t lie – I laughed my ass off:

Look, I understand it’s cliche, but it’s true. To women all over the world – we just don’t think as much as y’all.

This explains why dating, and even more simply male and female interactions in general, are so messed up these days.

I admit it – sometimes I check out our Reader feed and I find myself amused at the countless number of posts from male and female bloggers who lament about their romantic struggles. But fear not – I’m not laughing at you, I’m laughing with you. I mean, really, you have to find the comedy in single dating life, especially if it’s your own. Don’t worry, once you’re finally with that special someone, you’ll look back at these days and laugh even harder.

The general opinion is that guys are bad at texting. I tend to agree with this (not me though, I mean, can’t you tell by the Pulitzer-caliber writing quality of this blog that I’m phenomenal at texting) with a caveat – men and women simply communicate differently. The photo says it all – she over-analyzes and he over-simplifies. Maybe, just maybe, if women kept it a little more simple and men pulled back the curtain a little bit more in the text game, then singles would be better off. Just a thought.

P.S. By the way, Guys And Dolls, how did I come up with this oh so witty title? Well, Emily and I were in Netflix and chill mode the other night when we decided to watch Bill Murray’s Christmas Special because, well, Bill Murray is awesome. In the special, Murray sings Baby It’s Cold Outside. I think to myself, Hey who wrote that song? I go on Wikipedia and find out it was written by Frank Loesser. I think to myself, Hey, Frank Loesser wrote Guys And Dolls. And here we are. It’s been three days and I still can’t get this song out of my head.

P.P.S. If you haven’t, you should watch Guys and Dolls. Marlon Brando singing is horrifically awesome.

  1. Well done! I’m telling you, we need a magazine like this! We are on the same wavelength, so let’s design and publish a magazine like Hello Giggles!

    You are in high demand and Guys and Dolls is a perfect way to get conversations going as well as that therapy story about crossed paths and total misunderstandings!

    Truly think about it, and I want to support a way for you and I to speak more to a larger mass because the divorce rate and statistics in US is a serious epidemic!

    Please! Take me serious!

  2. Has there ever been a popular magazine that was directed for Guys and Dolls combined so as to not alienate one sex or the other?

    The time has come! With more “it’s just Pat” problems of what bathroom to use… I think we need to clarify sexes and understand their roles and start appreciating genders thereby appreciating the whole human race/gender!!! Incubators are going to put women out of creation! Men are trying to have babies with out US!!
    Women and Men need to have solidarity and create units again! Combine forces!
