For Best Hookup Results,

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 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.

An illegal immigrant facing murder charges for the killing of two law enforcement officers in Northern California went off the rails during his most recent court hearing and said, with a grin on his face, “I wish I had killed more,” Fox News reported. This is what the sanctuary-loving left wants to shelter from the deportation storm? Luis Enrique Monroy Bracamontes, 37, is a Mexican citizen who stands accused of killing two officers, Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr., in 2014 — at a time when he was in America illegally. His past court appearances have been marked by strange

Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman can’t seem to rid himself of the “bad boy” image. Rodman was arrested on suspicion of DUI on Saturday in Newport Beach, California, after police say he was “driving like a maniac and blaring music,” TMZ reports. The bigger problem for the former Chicago Bulls star, though, is that he is on probation for a July of 2016 hit-and-run incident in which he was driving the wrong way. This latest arrest could revoke Rodman’s three-year probation and force him to serve prison time, TMZ reports. Rodman was reportedly cooperative with police.

   

 



 
McConnell says Trump’s approval
key to immigration deal
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 1/17/2018 4:52:01     Post Reply
The Senate won’t vote on an immigration deal unless it has President Trump’s support, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday, effectively dooming the Gang of Six bill even before a bipartisan group of lawmakers officially introduced it. Mr. McConnell said they are waiting to see exactly what Mr. Trump will sign, but the president has said the bill written by Sens. Lindsey Graham and Richard Durbin was rejected by the White House last week, so it’s not the basis for negotiations. “I’m looking for something that President Trump supports and he has not indicated what measure he is willing to sign,” Mr. McConnell told

The Bible tells Christians to beware, that to follow Jesus paves the way for a life of challenge, mocking and persecution — that specifically, as Matthew 10:22 states, “you will be hated by all for [His] name’s sake.” (Snip) Fully 215 million Christians are right now facing “high levels of persecution” in 60 different countries, with “Islamic oppression” the driving factor in eight of the top ten, the nonprofit found, in its latest World Watch List 2018.

Americans can travel to North Korea, if they wish -- but it may just be a death wish, the U.S. State Department cautioned. The State Department last week issued a stark warning to people setting out for the Hermit Kingdom, cautioning that anyone heading to the dangerous dictatorship should prepare for the possibility of not returning. “The U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in North Korea as it does not have diplomatic or consular relations with North Korea,” the State Department published Wednesday on its website. Those who wish to travel to North Korea must be approved for a

The “Gang of Six” amnesty for millions of illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program should be rolled “straight into the trash can,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) says. On Wednesday, a group of six pro-amnesty Senators will roll out their expansive immigration amnesty plan that would not only give a pathway to U.S. citizenship beginning with 3.5 million DACA and DACA-eligible illegal aliens but also give amnesty to the parents of amnesty beneficiaries.

Tokyo - Japanese public broadcaster NHK says its erroneous alert of a North Korean missile fired at Japan was sent by a staff member who meant to file a different news flash. NHK denied any mechanical flaw and said Wednesday it is studying preventive measures. The erroneous news flash Tuesday said North Korea appeared to have fired a missile at Japan and that the government was warning people to take shelter. NHK retracted the mistake within minutes and apologized on air and on other formats. NHK isn't sure how many of its 300,000 social media followers saw the alert or notification and it's unknown if anyone followed the

Participants in a 20-nation summit on the North Korean nuclear threat have called for continued sanctions on the country, in an effort to pressure the regime to give up its rapidly advancing nuclear programme. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who participated in the one-day meeting in Vancouver, Canada, said the event sent a simple message: "We will not accept a nuclear-armed North Korea." The sentiment was echoed by Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono, who urged the international community not to ease up on North Korea despite its recent cooperation with the South.

Between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2016, 549 people were convicted of international terror offenses in United States federal court. Of those convicted terrorists, 254 were foreign-born non-citizens accounting for 73% of the convictions, according to a senior administration official who provided the data for reporters during a background briefing Tuesday. The high percentage of foreign-born non-citizens convicted of terror activities in the United States “highlights the importance of reforming the immigration system,” the administration official said, including the “importance of ending the practices of chain

Washington - The Trump administration said Tuesday that it will rush to the U.S. Supreme Court within a few days by skipping over a federal appeals court, hoping for quick action in the legal battle over shutting down the DACA program. "It´s an extremely unusual request, one that is granted once in a blue moon," said Tom Goldstein, publisher of the SCOTUSBlog website. "It´s a signal by the Trump administration that they take this issue incredibly seriously and think the justices should, too." A federal judge ruled Jan. 9 that the government could not end the program on March 6, as President Donald Trump proposed to do.

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders.

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction.

Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm.

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a
