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 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.

House Intel Committee finishes
its Russia probe interviews

Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, announced that the House Intelligence Committee´s interview phase of its investigation into collusion and Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign has concluded. Conaway told reporters Monday, "We found no evidence that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it colluded with the Russians." The Intelligence Committee did find, however, that Russia took active measures to meddle in the 2016 election, and that the majority expects it to undertake similar measures again.

Rep. Maxine Waters, who spent the better part of the inauguration season calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump — before he even took over the White House seat, mind you — and the better part of Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation calling for the same, has found a new “let’s get ‘im, guys” cause to crow, and it’s named Stormy Daniels.

A porn star suing President Trump offered Monday to return $130,000 she was paid to keep mum about their alleged sexual affair so that she can talk about the relationship. Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, offered to pay back the money in a letter to Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, seeking to settle her lawsuit to void a nondisclosure agreement. In the letter, Ms. Clifford’s lawyer Michael Avenatti said the money would be repaid by Friday and Mr. Trump had until noon Tuesday to accept the offer. “This has never been about the money,” Clifford’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, told NBC News

Griffin announced on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher” on Friday night that she had just booked upcoming shows at New York’s Carnegie Hall and at Washington’s Kennedy Center — “Trump’s backyard,” she called it. “I’m dipping my toes into touring again,” Griffin said, adding that the Republican president and his supporters would prefer she never worked again.

With the current in the East River between Manhattan and Queens running south at about three knots and the downed helicopter lashed to a tugboat, rescue divers on Sunday night had only one option. They told the tugboat captain to cut the propellers and resigned themselves to drifting with the current as they tried to cut five passengers out of the helicopter, their bodies underwater and cinched with harnesses heavy enough to let them lean over and snap photographs of the New York City skyline. By the time the divers plucked them out, it was too late. By the time the divers plucked them out, it was too late. The five passengers —

The White House on Sunday vowed to help provide “rigorous firearms training” to some schoolteachers and formally endorsed a bill to tighten the federal background checks system, but backed off President Trump’s earlier call to raise the minimum age to purchase some guns to 21 years old from 18 years old. Responding directly to last month’s gun massacre at a Florida high school, the administration rolled out a series of policy proposals that focus largely on mental health and school safety initiatives. The idea of arming some teachers has been controversial and has drawn sharp opposition from the National Education Association,

Trump brought up the issue when the crowd started chanting "Build that Wall." Trump called Pena Nieto a "really nice guy" who made his request respectfully.

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

President Trump says he didn´t collude with Russia in 2016, promising something to a foreign country in exchange for his installation as president. That seems increasingly likely to prove true. Where they do not spring from simple malignancy, critics’ arguments that Trump used Russian intervention to win the election are mostly an excuse to avoid the plain truth that Hillary Clinton deservedly lost because she was an awful candidate. And the country is better for that result. We aren’t persuaded, either, that the Russians’ paltry $100,000 in Facebook spending had anything to do with Trump’s win, given that very little of it

A McLaughlin & Associates/Media Research Center survey released Wednesday found that 44 percent were less likely to watch sports and entertainment shows “because they have become too political.” In addition, 75 percent said they watch sports and entertainment to escape from politics, and “do not want to be bombarded with partisan political messages.” The poll of 1,000 likely voters comes with television ratings plummeting in the last year for high-profile sports and entertainment

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. "The tendency of people to move to cities, either out of desire or perceived necessity, creates a great opportunity. If we managed urbanisation properly, we could nearly remove ourselves from a considerable percentage of

Discussing cities is like talking about the knots in a net: they’re crucial, but they’re only one part of the larger story of the net and what it’s supposed to do. It makes little sense to talk about knots in isolation when it’s the net that matters. Cities are part of the system we’ve invented to keep people alive on Earth. People tend to like cities, and have been congregating in them ever since the invention of agriculture, 10,000 or so years ago. That’s why we call it civilisation. This origin story underlines how agriculture made cities possible, by providing
