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 —
Comments: 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.
She works in the Boston Mayor´s office ... government "relations". I wonder.. if the mayor hit on her after reading this, would it be sexual harassment? "You are the girl of my dreams..." Would that do him in?
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.
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. Cotton — whose popular legal immigration-cutting RAISE Act was endorsed by President
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. "It is not the time to ease pressure or to reward
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
A longtime Hollywood stuntman, Joel Kramer, was accused of sexual misconduct by three women over the weekend, including one who said he assaulted her when she was just 12. That accusation came from the actress Eliza Dushku, now 37, who said on Saturday in a Facebook post that Mr. Kramer abused her during filming of “True Lies,” the 1994 summer blockbuster. (Snip) In a statement provided to Deadline, Sue Booth-Forbes, who said she was Ms. Dushku’s legal guardian on the set, said she had reported Mr. Kramer’s behavior to an authority figure. “I was met with blank stares and had the sense that I wasn’t telling that
Big changes are coming for Capitol Hill’s two most influential foreign policy bodies — even if the Republicans retain their House and Senate majorities during the midterm elections later this year. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee and Rep. Ed Royce of California, the GOP chairmen of the Senate Foreign Relations and House Foreign Affairs committees, respectively, are both leaving office when their terms are up at the end of 2018. (Snip) “At a moment when American foreign policy is in flux because of the recent change in White House administrations, losing these two senior chairman who’ve demonstrated a capacity to get
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.
(video) - Tucker Carlson said that in the wake of President Trump´s alleged comments about underdeveloped countries, our nation´s "elites" have "recoiled in rage." "A new consensus has formed... so get a pen: Every other country is great, especially the poor and disorganized ones," Carlson said of the left-wing and media response to comments about Haiti and Africa. (Tweet) Carlson said elites are instructing us to understand that immigrants from those nations are "uniformly more impressive than you are." "They fight more wars, pay more taxes, they start more companies than your kids ever will, so shut up with your doubts," he
On Sunday protesters clashed with police in Tunis. Some young men threw stones and police used tear gas, local reports said. The protests were staged in the run-up to the seventh anniversary of the ousting of President Zine El Abiding Ben Ali in 2011, an event that signaled the beginning to the Arab Spring. Most in the region are not looking back at those momentous events. Instead they are dealing with the aftereffects and many governments appear to hope that not discussing the Arab spring will mean the causes of the frustration that led to it will go away. In December 2010 Mohamed Bouazizi, a street vendor in Tunisia,
Washington - U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday thanked the ruler of Qatar for “action to counter terrorism and extremism in all forms,” the White House said in a statement that suggested a warming of ties between the two countries. In June, Trump had called on Qatar to stop funding groups that commit terrorism, saying the Gulf nation had historically done so “at a very high level.” Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, who along with Qatar are members of the Gulf Cooperation Council, plus non-GCC member Egypt cut off diplomatic, travel and trade ties with Qatar last year, accusing it of supporting militants and
If actions speak louder than words, President Trump’s actions Monday on Martin Luther King Jr. Day were restrained, amid persistent accusations of racism. In a sharp departure from his predecessors on the national day of service, Mr. Trump spent the bulk of the holiday at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida. President George W. Bush typically marked the holiday with a public event such as attending a service honoring King at a Baptist church in Landover, Maryland, or greeting volunteers at a public high school in Washington. President Barack Obama normally celebrated the King holiday by taking his daughters to serve food
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. None of those franchises made the
Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), no doubt gearing up to run for president in 2020, became unhinged during Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday.Booker glared crazily at Nielsen as he smashed his fists in protest of President Trump’s alleged “S***hole,” comments made during a meeting with Democrats on DACA. (Photo/Tweet/Video) Daily Caller published a partial transcript of Booker’s tirade: “I hurt,” Booker cried. “When Dick Durbin called me I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in this meeting. “For you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss
On Monday’s broadcast of CBS’ “Late Show,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that President Trump can begin to prove he’s not racist or bigoted by supporting the bipartisan immigration compromise. Schumer said Trump’s comments “over and over and over again can be described as nothing but racist and obnoxious. He says he’s not a racist. Well, … I have a challenge for Donald Trump. Okay, actions speak louder than words, if you want to begin, just begin that long road back to proving you’re not a racist, you’re not bigoted, support the bipartisan compromise that three Republicans and
Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”
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. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real
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. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up
From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. 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.
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) on Monday announced she plans to boycott President Trump´s State of the Union address to Congress at the end of the month, joining a handful of other Democratic lawmakers who are skipping the annual event. "I´m here on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to say I will not be going to the State of the Union," Jayapal said in a video posted on social media. "I think it is absolutely unacceptable to see the racism and the hatred coming out the White House in a way in which this president is fueling the flames of divisiveness across
Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) on Monday threw his support behind former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is reportedly weighing a Senate run in Utah. Mitt would make a phenomenal addition to the U.S. Senate. I hope he runs. https://t.co/3Vcg6txQmN — Jeb Bush (@JebBush) January 15, 2018 Bush´s endorsement on Twitter comes shortly after Romney criticized President Trump for reportedly describing African nations, Haiti and El Salvador as "shithole countries" during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform last week.
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
CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.
The sign at Costco explaining the jacked up price of a case of Gatorade has gone viral. (Photo/Tweet) On January 1, Seattle had several new progressive laws go into effect. Along with mandatory paid sick leave, mandates for employers to post work schedules 14 days in advance, and severe restrictions on short-term rental platforms (Airbnb, VRBO, etc.), Seattle imposed a massive new soda tax — 1.75 cents per OUNCE on sugary drinks.In response, at least one major retailer advertised in detail the reason for the significant increase in prices. Costco, famous for selling products in bulk quantities, faces especially stiff
