For Best Hookup Results,
Use Your Words, O.K.?

New York Times, by Gabrielle Ulubay

I had invited him over only for sex, so when I woke the next morning to the sight of him putting on his pants, I said, “Do you need me to walk you out?” “No, I’m just going to use the bathroom,” he said. “I’d like to stay, if that’s O.K.” And it was. So he stayed for the rest of the day, never more than a few inches from me. We left the room only to use the bathroom or to shuffle to the kitchen for snacks. Meanwhile, my roommates laughed, gossiping about my “sexcapade with the cute guy from Tinder.” “I think you’re the girl of my dreams,” he said. “I can’t believe we met on Tinder.” I had never been the girl of anyone’s dreams —

Disclaimer: Do NOT read the article. The New York Times wastes all this ink on what appears to be a page from her diary (or plagiarized from a romance novel). Ulubay, a recent college graduate who wrote film reviews at Northeastern University is dispensing dating (sex) advice for millennials. She sounds more like a future ticking time bomb for initiating a sexual harassment lawsuit against the Old Grey Lady, or whoever hires her. Quote the Maitre D´ from "Ferris Bueller´s Day Off": "I weep for the future."

OP, you were right. I shouldn’t have read the article. It is self -absorbed crap. I still don’t get the point other than that she sleeps around, likes flattery, and doesn’t understand why the men she sleeps with don’t come around for a second shot. A truly ridiculous article.

Clearly, we have lost the concept of shame. This is not a healthy lifestyle either physically or mentally. Sounds like someone who likes to sleep around and is proud of it. In my day, she would be called a tramp or worse, someone who has zero self-respect. This is not the pathway to a happy and healthy life.

Young ladies, do not throw your self-respect out the window. It is the backbone of your character in so many ways.

If you go straight to the sex it simply means that neither of you found anything interesting in the other.

I suspect this was pure fiction. I hope so for her sake.

While I won´t condemn young people for being more sexually active, thinking that a guy and a gal "hooking up" on a first date will lead to anything permanent is seriously screwed up. She is looking for Prince Charming while mucking out the stables and seems surprised and disappointed that he isn´t there.

Her sex toy for the night used nice words, sounding like he was using polite fictions about their situation. He stayed close to her, paid attention, and made her feel good. That actually seems better than I might expect from a one night stand.

Her complaint seems to be he wasn´t honest. What did she expect? One night stands are all about sexual fantasy. The fact that he kept the fantasy going beyond the first go round seems pretty nice. It is only in HER head that fantasy and reality are commingled.

I just don´t understand today´s females lack of self-respect & the necessity to broadcast intimate details of their lives. What happened to "shame"?

I read it on a Russian news site (which hasn´t sent me a virus, yet)(to find it search the title with the author).

What a depressing, sad, sick article/woman. She obviously feels an emotional attachment to men she sleeps with and has had her poor head too filled with nonsense by her environment (friends and professors) to even recognize that she does. Note to Gabrielle: go back and read the poets, women (who are not morally demolished) form an emotional attachment when having sex, men (usually) do not. The feminists can scream and yell, but they can´t change human nature.

Good grief! Are modern young women really so naively ignorant and self-absorbed?

The feminist movement has convinced women to lower their standards so carelessly that they are perceived now as nothing more than "hook-ups" to be enjoyed and then discarded - young ´feminists´ are seen as requiring no commitment, no responsibility, no respect.

Men who are seeking long-time companions and mothers for their future children, are not looking for them in bars, on hook-up apps, or in personal ads - a one night stand, no matter what they say, is not their idea of the perfect woman.

Women, if you are truly seeking men who will fill your lives with devotion, respect, and loving admiration, forget your whiny selves for a few moments and volunteer at your church, your nearest school, a local hospital, local charities - those are the places where you will meet the sincere, concerned, unselfish men whom you are seeking. Never mind, "use your words" - if you can throw off the shackles of self-pity long enough and your hearts are truly invested in helping others, by volunteering in those places, you may find yourself growing in dignity, self-respect, and confidence - the very qualities that attract good men of honor and merit.

Miami Dolphins´ anthem discipline

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/19/2018 8:47:19     Post Reply
Beating your wife is worse than protesting during the national anthem. So, too, is sexually assaulting a woman. While that might seem obvious, it needs to be clarified given The Associated Press´ report Thursday that the Miami Dolphins are now including protesting during the anthem on their list of "conduct detrimental to the club." Under NFL rules, that´s an offense punishable by a suspension of up to four games. The Dolphins later told the AP that "all options are still open." But to give you an idea of how heinous at least one NFL team sees trying to draw attention to racial and economic inequality, a four-game suspension is

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday defeated an attempt by panel Democrats to subpoena the interpreter who worked for President Donald Trump during his summit Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “This is an extraordinary remedy, I realize, but then it’s extraordinary for the president of the United States to ask all of his senior staff essentials to leave the room and have a conversation with an adversary,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who called for the vote to compel the interpreter to testify behind closed doors. “And then in a public conversation disavow his own intelligence

Washington, DC - President Donald Trump repeatedly promised during his campaign to nominate Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade. Now with another nominee to the Supreme Court in his hands, abortion rights advocates worry that conservative dream will come true. But what needs to happen in order for Roe, the 1973 court decision that legalized abortion nationwide, to be overturned is more complex than it might seem. And if it happens, what comes next isn’t black and white either. Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a George W. Bush–era nominee with an extensive record

Jerusalem - Israel’s parliament approved a controversial piece of legislation on Thursday that defines the country as the nation-state of the Jewish people but which critics warn sidelines minorities. The government says the bill, passed in the early morning hours, will merely enshrine into law Israel’s existing character. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called its passage a “historic moment in the history of Zionism and the history of the state of Israel.” “Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people, which honors the individual rights of all its citizens,” he said. “I repeat this is our state. The Jewish state.”

US proposes roll back of

The US administration of President Donald Trump on Thursday proposed sweeping changes to the 45-year-old Endangered Species Act which would roll back protections for threatened animals, sparking alarm by environmentalists. The 1973 federal law is considered the gold standard for global environmental protection, and is credited with saving dozens of key species from extinction, including bald eagles, manatees, humpback whales and American alligators. One proposed change, announced by the Interior and Commerce Departments, would remove a sentence that aims to separate economic impacts from decisions about animal protection. Other provisions would vary protections for animals on a case-by-case

House Democrats vote ´present´

Most House Democrats voted “present” Tuesday on a resolution aimed at forcing them to clarify whether they support U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, after some Democrats have criticized the agency´s role in enforcing U.S. immigration laws. The House passed a nonbinding resolution saying lawmakers support the "officers and personnel who carry out the important mission of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement." A two-thirds majority was needed to pass it, and because Democrats voted "present" instead of "no," it passed easily in a 244-35 vote. The final vote saw just 18 Democrats vote for the

Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election wasn’t as one-sided as Special Counsel Robert Mueller charges in his latest indictment. The Russian military spy agency that Mueller says hacked the Democratic National Committee also penetrated the computer systems of the Republican National Committee using fake emails in a phishing scheme, U.S. officials say. This evidence challenges the narrative, now reinforced by Mueller’s indictments, that Russia’s scheme was solely aimed at damaging Hillary Clinton. “RNC emails were stolen through the same spearphishing scams used against Democrats,” a senior U.S. intelligence official familiar with the investigation told RealClearInvestigations.

The much-maligned habit of ghosting has apparently made its way into the workplace. According to a recent LinkedIn article, "People are ´ghosting´ at work and it´s driving companies crazy." Ghosting is when a person abruptly goes silent or disappears without explanation.

Zyler, wearing rainbow leggings, scrutinized a pair of hot-pink-and-purple sneakers. Kadyn, in a T-Rex shirt, fixated on a musical cube that flashed colorful lights. At a glance, the only discernible difference between these fraternal twins is their hair — Zyler’s is brown and Kadyn’s is blond. Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn?

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is making plans to move the headquarters of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) out of Washington, D.C., to a city in the West. The federal government owns 640 million acres in the U.S., or roughly 28 percent of the nation’s entire landmass. The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service. Today, @Interior confirmed that they are planning to move the BLM HQ west. This is great news since 99% of the land that the BLM manages is located

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday. So should their senior staff. I don’t suggest
