Aries

Hey sexy! Ready for some frisky time in 2017? Your red-blooded sign may crave for a little more one on one action this year, and great news – chances are that it's gonna be a match made in more than just Heaven. You normally strive to succeed in everything, Aries, and romance is not the sector to be lazy this year.

You just need to be careful to stay honest to your truest goals. Do you want to win a dating game or to actually play the game for as long as it takes to get you what you deserve? If emotional stability hasn't been your win in 2016, this is a great time to lock up those commitment fears, analyze them in depth with a therapist and release them into creative energies that are meant to attract people who can complete you and not just compete with you.

Taurus

Who doesn't want a love affair that lasts forever? Probably just an Aquarius, but that's not the case for you, bull. You will be hit by a love truck this year when you stop holding grudges on all the people you cut off from your life allegedly (but still secretly ruminate about), that you may still love even if you cross the street or hide each time you see them pass by.

When your grounded morals and insatiable romanticism make peace and give way to forgiveness. No one who keeps their heart guarded forever can stumble upon love easily again, Taurus, and you, of all signs know how to sport a sexy heart on your sleeve when the flirty feels come in.

Gemini

Have you ever planted something in the garden of commitments, Gemini? Is there something you want to share about your hopes and dreams that is anchored in the concrete field of love? With you, life becomes a spectacular science of bouncing off clouds – but no wonder few could keep up with those aerial roots when all you crave to do is lift off. Man or woman needs an astronaut suit to navigate life with you, as you tend to reach sky high and abandon concrete things for idealistic targets.

Of course, that comes in with your spellbound package of seductiveness and makes you the kindred spirit for so many lovers, but it takes two to tango, even up in the air. Love finds you when you put one foot on the ground and make enough room in your flying saucer for a significant other to jump in. Gravity is not that bad, after all, it's the reason we all walk the Earth and sometimes bump into loving, wonderful and nurturing souls that make any hot air balloon float at the perfect speed and height.

Cancer

When you stop obsessively stalking your exes' and their new SO's social media profiles, and feeding yourself on the cruel intention of invading the past. Sometimes, in life, it's good to let go, Cancer, and cleaning up the closet might turn out your most prolific resolution at the beginning of 2017. You love to time travel and spin back into the waters of what's been and what hasn't, but throwback Thursday pictures of you and your old crush won't ever get you new grounds to conquer.

Instead of taking one step forward and three steps back, try to cut down on the excessively bad habits you ingrained into your love diet. Start an Instagram of your favourite resolutions (this way you can keep track of what your plans were and how you did follow them into the new year), enrol in a Vippassana camp mid-year to awaken your dormant senses or begin exploring your sensual side with a therapist who can help guide your love life into a magic carpet instead of a door mat.

Leo

Oh, fire fighter you! Ever wondered why the Earth revolves around the Sun and not the other way around? Of course not, because from your standing point, you are the centre of the universe and you feel entitled to all of the gravitating attention that exists. Mere mortals might love you for your sparkly, feisty nature at first but every hero becomes a bore when they make the same self-centred call for action, don't they?

It's good to stay in touch with your needs, Leo, but how about this year you try to bend your ears to other people's voices as well? Compassion is a powerful asset, Leo, and in the cards of love it's the ace. Instead of choosing my way or the highway tagline to guide you through a new year, make this journey a joint venture of feelings, fun, activities and shared experiences. Your big love might come out from a most unexpected place, the moment you silence your ego to receive all the attention and start spreading your own attention to what's going on around you.

Virgo

When you open your calendar for spontaneity. There's always something to fix around the house and someone to please at work, and you can easily get sucked into other people's schedules or agendas ending up neglecting your own, Virgo. This year, turn your tidiness away from your actual dressing room and onto your mental closet of capabilities.

Is there something you've wanted to do for a long time, like a super personal DIY project or a sabbatical you needed by all means? While your life might be all planned and packed until December, your inner artist may want to splurge into the careless fun of doing unpredictable things for at least one day at a time. Fuel that super personal feel with real connection, get some quality time with people you haven't seen in a long time and embrace the unknown into getaways that will harvest your adventurous spirit. The best things in life, and so in love, always happen at the border between places and things.

Libra

Hey there life of the party, love is hard to choose when you have only so many projects and activities going on, inn'it? You shed starlight and charisma on everything you touch by your own nature, and your capacity to navigate mishaps from a high horse is your innate skill, but no wonder you have FOMO (fear of missing out) when your options come so many at one time. Instead of bargaining for time alone and space, try working on a schedule this year that allows you to fit love in the landscape without making it an endless game of speed dating.

Your heart knows what it wants, Libra, and more often than not, your dream girl or guy could be right under your nose and not waiting for you somewhere far over the rainbow. You're a natural seducer, so next time you get distracted by a million things to do or see, take some time to actually reply to that text message from someone who showed genuine interest in you, invest yourself in meaningful conversation and let yourself surprised by the serendipity of falling for the stranger who reads you like an open book. Vulnerability may be hard to manage, but it's your own chance at true love!

Scorpio

Does it look like vengeance brought you to a brighter place last year? We probably all know the answer so kick start 2017 with a proactive attitude towards romance. There is absolutely nothing more unsettling for a potential partner than sitting down with a person who boils in frustration and regret, and you know that, Scorpio. It's time to roll down to the gym, burn some angst or maybe release some tension with a massage therapist.

Perhaps stimulate your senses with a slow house yoga class or train for the marathon. Either way, it will get you out of your stingy shell and put you back on track for the dating game. Feeling tired or resentful? Take this advice on how to reassemble your liveliness and desire for wanderlust and next time you go on a date take a deep breath each time you feel like pouring past relationship venom over dinner.

Sagittarius

Fools rush in, Sag, but rushing out seems to be your specialty, mostly when it comes to the heart. Your fear of grounding yourself in a potential love affair is blocking your way into the real, fiery and potentially life changing partnership you are craving for. Leaving before the lights are up in a relationship might save you hurt and remorse with a partner that might have proved a terrible match, but what if you actually took the time to navigate the stages of a love bond one at a time instead of burning them all throughout the course of one week? There's always another swipe right out there for you, but keeping your options always open does not necessarily mean you're keeping your eyes on the current prize.

Your lust for life and passionate nature can successfully attract a match that will lure all your senses on the long run – only if you let it – and while some people aren't meant to be tamed but designed to run until they find someone as strong to run along with, you might be cheating the finish line by always avoiding it. Running will always make you kick back into yourself, so this year – might as well just walk along a potential partner and let patience do its magic. Remember: build-up is sexy!

Capricorn

When was the last time you did something exclusively for yourself? Does it hurt even to try out a couple new things that don't cost a lot of money at the beginning of this new year? How about participate more actively in the love life you'd want to enhance? Cozy is a nice way to start 2017 but sitting alone on the couch binge watching Netflix and not paying a single dime of attention to your looks won't get you further than the economy store downstairs for more pizza and booze.

Capricorn, you need to invest in yourself if you want others to invest in you. Your favourite series won't go anywhere and guess what, once you hit the road for some more exciting adventure and fun, you might actually have someone to share those tiny, comfortable experiences with. Think about it.

Aquarius

When you accept the fact that your need for personal space does not thrive on your fear of commitment. When you let your inner tortured artist love and let live without abandoning relationships just because the pain makes you create. The moment you understand you can be brave and independent and a seeker and still coexist in the loving arms of a person who sees you as their forever, that moment you will give yourself permission to stay in love without fearing you have to sacrifice your identity.

Pisces

Your heart is a deep ocean of secrets, and that's what makes people attracted to you in first place. You lure partners into your heavy waters, but sometimes the mystery needs a tad reveal to come through. 2017 is a good start to work on opening up and embracing the challenge to say YES more than saying maybe. Remember, any mermaid is just a fish without its charming song. TC mark

19 Women Answer The Eternal Question: Does Penis Size Matter?

Posted: 10 Jan 2017 08:00 PM PST

1. The truth? Size matters.

"The truth? Size matters. If you have more, you can do less and still satisfy a woman. In other words, it’s the meat, not the motion."

Vicki


2. I’d say it’s more about the size of a man’s tongue.

"I’d say it’s more about the size of a man’s tongue, if you know what I’m sayin’. (Oral sex is KEY.)”

Wren


3. Too small—still hungry, too big—tummy ache.

"Too small—still hungry, too big—tummy ache."

Avigail


4. I need to feel my man waayyy up.

"Yes, it matters. I don't want to have to be telling a man to stop tickling me. I need to feel my man waayyy up."

Ariana


5. I'm not looking for a cruise ship, but at the same time I need a decent size boat to ride the rough seas.

"I always hear people say it's not the size of the boat, it's the motion of the ocean. Well, if that's the case a lot of men drown out at sea. I'm not looking for a cruise ship, but at the same time I need a decent size boat to ride the rough seas."

Judione


6. It does to an extent.

"I’d like to say it doesn’t, but it does to an extent. However, it’s less length and more girth?”

Colleen


7. There’s nothing sadder than having to ask if it’s in when it IS in.

"As long as you can feel it and I mean decently feel it, then it doesn’t matter that much. There’s nothing sadder than having to ask if it’s in when it IS in—it’s just super uncomfortable and embarrassing for both."

Jen


8. A small penis can’t create the same sensation that a larger one can, and it can make certain maneuvers difficult.

"Sorry to anyone who wants to believe otherwise but, yes, size does matter. A small penis can’t create the same sensation that a larger one can, and it can make certain maneuvers difficult—it might fall out during doggy style or when switching positions, for example."

Ana


9. Girth is important. Length, less so.

"Girth is important. Length, less so. I’ve personally never come across one that was too short or too long, but I have met one that was too skinny, and this was when I was 20, so it’s obviously not an issue of me being ‘old,’ ‘loose,’ or ‘stretched out,’ as some butthurt dudes might assume."

Jenn


10. Size does matter when it comes to having an orgasm through intercourse.

"I've been with just over a dozen men whose penises ranged from 5 inches to 14 inches and were of various girth. Size does matter when it comes to having an orgasm through intercourse, and length is less important than girth. My personal preference would be 9 to 10 inches and thick enough that I can't quite close my hand around it. This size affords me the ability to have vaginal orgasms in multiple positions and isn't so large that fellatio is a challenge."

Joy


11. I can’t handle them if they’re too big.

"I can’t handle them if they’re too big. I’m fragile and it definitely is way more painful than pleasurable if a guy is huge. At the same time, you don’t want someone too small that you can barely feel or enjoy. A good average penis tends to do the trick for me."

Aliza


12. I dated a guy with a penis the size of my pinky, and sometimes I wasn’t even sure if we were having sex.

"It matters. I dated a guy with a penis the size of my pinky, and sometimes I wasn’t even sure if we were having sex. The whole big hands, big feet thing is a total lie. He doesn’t need a foot-long, 4-inch-round penis, but there’s got to be something substantial."

Michelle


13. As long as you're not under average, I'd say no.

"As long as you're not under average, I'd say no. We're not going to be disappointed if you don't whip out an anaconda."

Rachel 


14. Size doesn't matter unless you're either really big or really small.

"Size doesn't matter unless you're either really big or really small. This is the one area of life where it is completely acceptable — in fact, preferred — to be average. Average is good. If I reach down there and feel a basic 5-6 inch snake, I'm happy. I'm excited, even. 1. Because every girl's worst nightmare is going home with a guy with a micropenis and 2. Because I won't have to fake enjoying a guy's footlong ramming into my cervix for half an hour. Neither of those situations are ideal. Average penises are the best."

Cristina


15. I can barely feel him thrusting, and he keeps slipping out. He orgasms. I don’t.

"I look down.

He’s hard.

And he’s tiny.

Erect, he’s probably about the length of my middle finger and the width of a baby carrot. Although it’s not a micropenis—I mean, I can see it—it’s definitely the smallest I’ve encountered and absolutely at odds with what I expected from his broad-shouldered, rugby-player-like build. My heart falls to my stomach in disappointment as I drop onto my knees, wondering if his penis will look larger up close. I cautiously take it in my mouth as he moans thankfully. I can still easily talk, simply shifting his penis, straw-like, to the side of my mouth. 'Feel good?'

I murmur, the question mark at the end of the sentence begging for this situation to end. In response, he pulls me up and onto the bed. 'It’s a bit small, isn’t it?' he says as he pulls out a condom. It’s not so much a question as a statement of fact. 'It only matters what you do with it,' I say, trying to be encouraging as I guide him into me. I can barely feel him thrusting, and he keeps slipping out. He orgasms. I don’t."

JL


16. I can sooner imagine myself seriously dating a guy with a small dick than I can a guy who's shorter than I am.

"I don't want to sugarcoat it: I know that for some girls, including my bookish writer friend, small dicks are a dealbreaker. And that's fine, because we all have our own personal preferences. I won't deny that I've been in situations in the past where a guy's lack of size certainly didn't help matters. However, I can sooner imagine myself seriously dating a guy with a small dick than I can a guy who's shorter than I am—that's just me."

Karley


17. I once met this guy with a really small one, and the first thing that came to my mind was whether Guinness Book of World Records knew about him.

"I once met this guy with a really small one, and the first thing that came to my mind was whether Guinness Book of World Records knew about him. We had sex once and it was terrible."

Kayla


18. My BF is a lung poker, and when he hits that one spot that's almost painful it's just pure ecstasy.

"I like length. girth eh. but my BF is a lung poker, and when he hits that one spot that's almost painful it's just pure ecstasy. I don't even watch porn, so :P plus a hook or a curved one is amazing!"

Lizz


19. Too long or too thick can both hurt.

"Too long and it just 'hits bottom' and that hurts, a total moodkill. But too thick and it hurts too. I gave birth twice, I don’t want to be stretched like again without the benefit of hormones and painkillers."

13 Disturbing Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About Dylann Roof

Posted: 10 Jan 2017 07:15 PM PST

via Facebook
Last Rhodesian

On June 17th, 2015 Dylann Roof opened fire at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. A massive manhunt eventually brought him to justice, and his trial on federal changes has just concluded.

1. He operated a personal website known as The Last Rhodesian where he wrote about his “ideology”

The Last Rhodesian
The Last Rhodesian

The “last Rhodesian” is probably in reference to the Republic of Rhodesia, which was an unrecognized state in southern Africa that attempted to preserve white rule over efforts to create a bi-racial government. Under the short-lived regime, black political leaders were arrested and tortured to maintain order. Many white supremacists look upon this government with much nostalgia, and their flag (which Roof wears) is a symbol of the white supremacy movement.

The website itself features a gallery of pictures and a large text file labeled his “manifesto.” Both reveal more dark information about Roof. The website’s front page featured a white dead body.

2. The website featured a large number of bizarre photos, many of Roof himself.

Attached to his website were 61 photos, many of Roof standing ominously in different places. Some were even selfies of himself wearing his “Rhodesian” garb or holding weapons.

Just three of the sixty-one bizarre photos from Roof's personal website

Some other photos featured a cemetery, a gun, pictures of Roof stomping on the American flag and brandishing the rebel flag.

3. He claims to have been racially “awakened” by the Trayvon Martin case

On his website, he writes:

The event that truly awakened me was the Trayvon Martin case. I kept hearing and seeing his name, and eventually I decided to look him up. I read the Wikipedia article and right away I was unable to understand what the big deal was. It was obvious that Zimmerman was in the right. But more importantly this prompted me to type in the words "black on White crime" into Google, and I have never been the same since that day.

Roof says that the occurrence of “black on white crime” led him to believe that he should trigger open violence between the races.

4. He openly hated America and veterans

100_2115
The Last Rhodesian

Roof believed that patriotism was a joke and modern veterans aren’t really fighting for anything:

I hate the sight of the American flag. Modern American patriotism is an absolute joke. People pretending like they have something to be proud while White people are being murdered daily in the streets. Many veterans believe we owe them something for "protecting our way of life" or "protecting our freedom". But im not sure what way of life they are talking about.

His hate of America can also be seen in the photos of Roof stomping upon the American flag and honoring the rebel or Rhodesian flag.

5. He was partially motivated by movie quotes

In his broad “manifesto” Roof claims that one quote, in particular, motivated his attack:

To take a saying from a film, "I see all this stuff going on, and I dont see anyone doing anything about it. And it pisses me off."

This quote was from the movie American History X. Ironically, that film was about a white supremacist who realized his views were wrong while in prison. He also cites a second quote:

To take a saying from my favorite film, "Even if my life is worth less than a speck of dirt, I want to use it for the good of society."

Which is from the movie Himizu, which apparently he also completely misunderstood.

6. He deliberately targeted Charleston

He concludes his manifesto by explaining that Charleston, historically, has a very high ratio of blacks to whites and that’s why he wanted to attack there. He also implies that he “had” to attack, and hoped that his actions would trigger more violence.

I have no choice. I am not in the position to, alone, go into the ghetto and fight. I chose Charleston because it is most historic city in my state, and at one time had the highest ratio of blacks to Whites in the country. We have no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet. Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me.

7. He was actually questioned by police in early March

On March 2nd, Roof was questioned by police after he skulked around a local mall wearing all black garb and asked multiple employees uncomfortable, “unsettling” questions.

He was found carrying drugs, and was banned from the mall for a year. When he was found on mall property again in April, his ban was modified to at least three years.

8. And again in late March

The Last Rhodesian
The Last Rhodesian

On March 13th, Roof was recognized by one of the cops who questioned him at the mall earlier in the month. The office search his car and found an AR-15 grip and six unloaded magazines.

Roof explained that he was in possession of both things because he had wanted to buy an AR-15, but didn’t have enough money. He was not violating South Carolina law by having either, so no further action was taken.

9. He allegedly told people about his plans

Roof told friends and neighbors about his plans to execute a mass shooting somewhere. He often complained about “blacks taking over the world” and told a close childhood friend that he planned to “kill people.” Another friend revealed that the church may have been a backup plan after he couldn’t get inside a college.

10. Despite both police encounters and giving advanced warning, Roof unleashed horror on Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church

The Last Rhodesian
The Last Rhodesian

Around 8:00PM EST, Roof entered the EAMEC church and sat through their nighttime Bible study. 13 people — including Roof and Reverend Clementa C. Pinckney — were at the class.

According to the congregation members present, Roof listening carefully during the study and seemed to be very attentive. While the group concluded the meeting in prayer, Roof pulled his gun out of a fanny pack and began to open fire.

When someone asked him why he was doing this, Roof responded: “I have to do it. You rape our women and you’re taking over our country. And you have to go.”

He also reportedly screamed at his victims during the shooting: “Y’all want something to pray about? I’ll give you something to pray about.”

11. Upon arrest, he showed no regret or remorse

Roof was apprehended by police in North Carolina after Debbie Dills saw his car. She tailed him for 36 miles before police honed in.

The closest Roof ever came to remorse was stating that he almost rescheduled the shooting after the members of the church were so kind to him. Otherwise, he confessed to investigators about wanting to start a race war, and insisted there was nothing wrong with him mentally.

12. To this day, he still maintains that he had to do it.

When talking to the jury about sentencing, Roof not only showed zero remorse, he also openly stated that he would do it again.

“In my confession to the FBI, I told them that I had to do it. But obviously that’s not really true. I didn’t have to do it, and no one made me do it. What I meant when I said that was I felt like I had to do it, and I still feel like I had to do it. Anyone who hates anything in their mind has a good reason to hate.”

13. But now he will die

A jury has just sentenced Roof to the death penalty on his federal charges. This is the first time someone has gotten the death penalty for a federal hate crime. TC mark

16 Signs That Sex With Your Boyfriend Is Far Too Vanilla For You

Posted: 10 Jan 2017 07:00 PM PST

Twenty20, tomainodominique
Twenty20, tomainodominique

1. You’re sick of missionary. And doggy style. Because they’re the only two positions that he ever puts you in. You wish that he would branch out a little more.

2. There’s barely any foreplay and it’s nothing exciting. It’s the same old thing. Things that you’re desensitized to by now.

3. You do find him attractive, but you need more than some eye candy to get turned on. You want to hear his voice whisper dirty things into your ear. To feel his hands run through your hair and yank it. To have more than one of your five senses satisfied.

4. You don’t even enjoy oral anymore, because he always uses the same methods. Since it worked for him once, he figures it will work every time. There’s never any variety in his movements.

5. Sex has become predictable. Not only can you guess what position he’s going to choose, but you can guess when he’s going to initiate sex. It always happens at the same time, in the same way. He never takes you by surprise and throws you against a wall. The kisses only come when you’re in bed together at night.

6. You’d like to try sex toys. Vibrators. Handcuffs. Blindfolds. But he refuses to use any props in the bedroom, because he wants his penis to be enough for you.

7. Sex is nothing like your fantasies. In your fantasies, things are rough. Wild. Passionate. Better.

8. He doesn’t use his hands enough. He doesn’t pin your wrists down or spank you or rub your clitoris. He keeps his hands on the bed and you wish that he would just use them.

9. You also wish that he would make more noise. Ask you what you want. Tell you how good it feels. Or at least moan. But he’s always silent. You can never tell what he’s thinking.

10. Whenever you try to kiss him in public, he pushes you away. He’s not interested in PDA, so public sex is completely off the table.

11. He only kisses you on the lips. Never on the neck. Never on the chest. Only on your face.

12. Whenever you try to sext him or send him a naughty picture, he doesn’t keep the sexy conversation going. He’d rather talk about something else.

13. During sex, you find your mind wandering. You find yourself looking at the clock. You find yourself wishing it was over almost as soon as it starts.

14. When you watch porn or read erotica, the scenes are intense. You’re into some pretty kinky stuff, but you know your boyfriend would never agree to try any of it.

15. You’ve tried to communicate with him, to tell you what you want from him in the bedroom, but he hasn’t changed his ways. He doesn’t want to. Your tastes are just so different.

16. You don’t even want to have sex with him anymore. You’d rather masturbate. TC mark 

Here’s What Your New Year’s Resolution Should ACTUALLY Be, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Posted: 10 Jan 2017 06:15 PM PST

@dashapats
@dashapats

Aries

March 21 – April 19

Have patience. Look ahead of you and see how much time you have to relax and unwind. Recognize that other people don’t run at the same speed as you – and that’s okay. Give them time to catch up and know that they still care just as much, if not more, because of your graciousness.

Taurus

April 20 – May 20

Realize that everyone sees the world in different ways. Learn to respect all opinions, even if you don’t agree with them. Try something new, something you’ve never thought of doing before, and remember that it’s okay to dislike it. New experiences will only bring benefits.

Gemini

May 21 – June 20

Sit down and look at your priorities. Pick out one or two that mean the most to you and begin letting the rest go. Simplify, simplify, and you will find the things that really matter most become stronger and more meaningful. Life isn’t as complicated as you make it.

Cancer

June 21 – July 22

Learn to let go of other peoples’ emotions and focus on your own. You need clarity and peace in your life more than anything else right now, and struggling through the problems of your close relationships isn’t helping. True friends will still be waiting after you fix yourself.

Leo

July 23 – August 22

Let your racing thoughts go and take a mental vacation. Use this time to really examine the ways you interact with others. Remember that while an exchange may mean nothing to you, it might mean the world to someone else. Always be kind, even in the smallest of situations, because you never know what could come out of it.

Virgo

August 23 – September 22

You need to look at yourself and realize how incredible you truly are. Self-doubts are like dust on the surface of your mind, brush them away and see how clear and open the world becomes. This year is full of opportunity for you if you have the courage to reach out and take it.

Libra

Sept 23 – Oct 22

The truth hasn’t been your best friend in the past, but now is the time to embrace it. Lies will take you farther than you ever believed, whether for good or for bad. You stand on shaky ground unless you find your moral centre and forge a cleaner path forwards.

Scorpio

Oct 23 – Nov 21

You will always catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. The world isn’t set in black and white – learn to live in the grey and accept that not everyone agrees with your extreme views. Be soft and kind whenever possible and you will begin to see that different situations require different solutions.

Sagittarius

Nov 22 – Dec 21

When you’re in hot waters, take a deep breath and remember that nothing is permanent. Your impatience will only get you into more trouble. While others can be irritating, the best solution is one that ends with peace on all sides – not just your own. Keep calm, keep quiet, and make decisions that will impact your future in a positive way.

Capricorn

Dec 22 – Jan 19

Roll up your sleeves and face the situations you find most unpleasant, because it’s there you’ll find that the hardest earned victories are the sweetest. Difficult problems, especially social ones, will be solved by keeping a level head and letting others do the talking. You’ll be surprised at what your relationships are capable of.

Aquarius

Jan 20 – Feb 18

Learn to trust the people around you. You’ve been hurt by close relationships before, but there’s no better way to heal yourself than to get back on your feet. Recognize that everyone is different, and put your faith in those who have proven their loyalty to you.

Pisces

Feb 19 – March 20

Take a step back and realize how you are interconnected with others. Your relationships will not suffer if you stop working so hard to maintain them, because sometimes this overexertion is what strains them in the first place. You don’t always need to be the centre of attention. Work on providing for others and you will find just as much satisfaction. TC mark

5. I find dominant men sexy, but would hate that in real life.

"Please God I hope no one finds me here…but…Degradation and humiliation, MMF and just rough men. I find dominant men sexy, but would hate that in real life."

6. Old men.

"Old men. Have always fantasized about being with a man older than me. But when it comes to porn, the older the better."

7. Balls slapping against ass.

"Balls slapping against ass. And guys being vocal. Sploosh."

8. Monster cock.

"Monster cock, 10+ inch cock, DP, and doggy style hopefully with a you guessed it….Huge cock. And never any sound on, ever. Not even once just to see how it feels."

12. I like to watch videos with a girl who has a similar body type as mine.

"I generally like to watch videos with a girl who has a similar body type as mine. Other than that, it’s mostly 'sort by most viewed' and look for high rated ones."

"Male sucking big tits, but they have to look natural. Is that weird?"

15. I like to watch women masturbating.

"Honestly, I like to watch women masturbating. But it’s not because I’m attracted to women—it’s because I’m imagining what it would be like to be that woman, and have tons of guys rubbing one out to me doing dirty things to myself. Never is there any desire for the woman involved. It’s all me putting myself in their shoes."

Kmart1008


16. Guys jerking off, especially if it’s loud.

"Guys jerking off, especially if it’s loud (moaning, heavy breathing, etc). Occasionally for some dirty talking although most of the time it’s a bit cheesy."

17. There’s this video of a woman straddling this heavy duty vibrating machine and she has orgasm after orgasm and passes out.

"Bondage and forced orgasm. There’s this video of a woman straddling this heavy duty vibrating machine and she has orgasm after orgasm and passes out. I’ve also googled gang bang. Nothing I’d want to participate in but it makes me horny to look at."

18. MMF threesomes.

19. Rough stuff where the girl is really getting off.

"LOTS of BDSM, girls tied up. Rough stuff where the girl is really getting off…lesbian, orgasm, forced orgasms…I just like watching girls cum because I know the feeling!"

Shoxabox


20. I get way too invested in porn plots.

"I don’t really watch porn but I got turned on by two guys together so my boyfriend at the time decides to get me a gay porn. (On disc, if Internet porn existed then it wasn’t so mainstream) They start making out which was super-hot. There were blow jobs, also hot.

But then, there was the guy with the bulging muscles and huge dick attacking the poor little guy. I’m yelling at the screen, genuinely alarmed! Oh my god, run little guy! Run! Arg! No! Clench your butt cheeks! That big guy was MEAN! Poor little guy. My ex thought my cheering for the little guy was hysterical.

Totally ruined gay porn for me. Not that I was ever going to be super into porn but it killed the fantasy.

I also watched a really interesting porn where they were at a masquerade ball and everyone kept screwing the wrong person. I was also cheering on people in that one. 'Oh no! That’s not your husband! He had to change costumes!'

Apparently I get way too invested in porn plots. That’s pretty much most of my experience with porn."

wyldepixie


21. I appreciate the animalistic side from seeing two sweaty guys going at each other.

"Gay porn. The female-centric shots during straight porn are too icky and distracting for me, I don’t want the focus to be on big-titted women faking orgasms. The reverse logic must be why guys like girl on girl as well, escaping the dreaded balls-POV. Additionally, I appreciate the animalistic side from seeing two sweaty guys going at each other."

25. Gangbangs, BDSM, rough porn.

"Gangbangs, BDSM, rough porn, etc. But those are just my kinks. I like BDSM and rough sex in the bedroom, too. I do like well-done rape roleplay, too, but definitely abhor rape or no consensual anything in real life, ever, of course. I imagine that you will find the same fetishes and porn interests in both of the sexes, although perhaps at different percentages. Like girls tend to have more rape fantasies. I resent 'vanilla' porn that is branded as 'female-friendly.' It should be more like…beginner-friendly. Lots and lots of women love porn, it’s nothing unusual or all that different from men watching porn, in my opinion."

27. Not sure why I love watching women be degraded in sex scenes I KNOW FOR A FACT can’t be enjoyable.

"I don't know why this is the case but I usually watch DP, gangbangs, and casting couches. Not sure why I love watching women be degraded in sex scenes I KNOW FOR A FACT can’t be enjoyable, but ya know that's just where the ol' mind wanders."

supbraAA


28. I like lots of domination, light teasing/torture.

"I’m straight as they come but for whatever reason, the porn I watch only involves women often. The men tend to be unattractive or not the type I’d want to tap, so it kills the fantasy.

That said, I like lots of domination, light teasing/torture. Anything that involves tickling, spanking, forced orgasms, anything that involves being tied up and helpless usually does the trick.

My kinks are fairly vanilla, but just enough pervy that I’m too embarrassed to tell the BF, so to the Internet I go!"

Princess_and_a_wench


29. Impregnation porn is really hot to me.

"Impregnation porn is really hot to me. Weird given I do not want to get pregnant at all. Also, guys jacking off slowly with these low breathy moans, getting so into it their back arches. It’s a very specific thing."

30. Hot guy-on-guy action.

"Mostly bondage scenes or hot guy-on-guy action."

31. Anything degrading.

"Anything degrading. Throat-fucking, gang bangs, bukakke, cream pies, BDSM. Rape play. Double penetration is my go-to, though."

32. Gang bang and anal.

"Gang bang and anal. Not into either in my own sex life, though. Anal hurts and gang bang are kind of gross. Probably why they are a turn-on, though."

33. Either solo male masturbating/fucking an object or people in fur suits getting it on.

"I don’t watch porn anymore, but when I did it was always either solo male masturbating/fucking an object or people in fur suits getting it on. Nothing else really did it for me."

34. I’m into skinny, large-chested white girls.

"I’m pretty into skinny, large-chested white girls, usually don’t care about the guy as long as he’s decently attractive. Hate dirty talking, more into moaning. Lots of foreplay involving the boobs and forceful fucking."

capacitation


35. Real orgasms, because I know what genuine pleasure looks and feels like.

"Real orgasms, because I know what genuine pleasure looks and feels like. Those chicks getting pounded with angry or pained grimaces on their faces only make me uncomfortable and turn me off. I guess I relate to the girl(s) in porn."

RabbitRobotica


36. I like when a woman genuinely seems overwhelmed.

"I like heavier porn than my boyfriend, overall. Forced sex, forced orgasm, gang bang, anal, painal, double anal. I like when a woman genuinely seems overwhelmed.

I have room for hot 'normal' sex too but so much of it reads fake to me in porn that I just go right for the heavy boundary-crossing. I think there are colossal gaps in the porn market that have yet to be filled."

cannedpenis


37. Monster porn.

"Monster porn. Orcs, demons, centaurs, trolls, werewolves, you name it on a human woman. Pretty much the only thing is hentai, but lately when I go looking there are a lot of 3D rendered vids from places other than Japan. There are a few artists I like to follow, but on the whole it's hard to find something genuinely sexy and not ridiculously stupid. Also really hard to find consensual stuff. I don’t mind the occasional non-con and dub-con, but some feel good fun times between a willing lady and a huge monster dude is what I like best."

38. Daddy daughter.

"Daddy daughter. Old young. Massage voyeur. Tribbing. Brother sister."

39. Gay porn where one guy will be on top of another reverse cowgirl.

"Straight female here: I am particularly turned on by looking at an erect unsupported penis. I love watching men (being filmed or film themselves) watching porn, getting hard (without touching) and then blowing a load hands-free. Also erect water sports are pretty cool too. Other things I like are gay porn. Where one guy will be on top of another reverse cowgirl."

PoisedbutHard


40. The closer it is to the real deal, the better.

"I go for amateur. The closer it is to the real deal, the better. I tend to cringe at stereotypical pornos due to all the unnecessary moaning, spherical tits, clit slapping (why?) and other delights like that. Also, exhibitionism."

42. Chicks with dicks is my favorite.

"Chicks with dicks is my favorite. Best of both worlds."

43. I love guys who take control and know how to fuck like they mean it.

"I love watching porn. I love dominating guys—not necessarily bondage or BDSM, just guys who take control and know how to fuck like they mean it. I love guys who talk dirty—if you search dirty talk it’s nearly always the girl talking. I want the guy to talk! I want to hear them groan and grunt and call me a dirty bitch.

Spanking is nice, close up pussy eating, rough handling. Sometimes I don’t feel like hard stuff, so I like Dane Jones, which is porn aimed at women. My favorite porn star from Dane Jones is Martin with the tattoos. He has a lovely cock and eats girls out really well."

MamasSecretThrowaway


44. I love anything with men moaning loudly and gasping.

"On pornhub I tend to search for 'bisexual' (I like MMF threesomes), babysitter, step-sibling (for the 'hold the moan' aspect), teen and petite (I am tiny myself). I love anything with men moaning loudly and gasping; for some reason though men just don’t moan as much as women in porn or elsewhere. It’s part of the reason I like pegging. They almost always make pretty noises then… I also like gay glory hole, but I’m not really sure why."

gentleplease


45. I really enjoy lesbian BDSM pornography where a girl is forced to eat another girl's pussy.

"For some reason I really enjoy lesbian BDSM pornography where a girl is forced to eat another girl's pussy. It’s incredibly hot. I feel kind of bad because I know it’s essentially rape, but it’s just a fantasy. Also, beautiful Asian men jacking."

DaoDiBitch


46. Cumshot compilations.

"Cumshot compilations. Especially pull-out ones or ones where you can see the cock throb inside when halfway inside the lady. Male orgasms are hot AF."

47. Tiny girls and big cocks.

"BDSM. Early Lela star. Latina spinners. Woodman castings or ugly Frenchmen fucking the most beautiful amateur Eastern European girls. Tiny girls and big cocks."

katiesmartcat


48. Pretend rape where she doesn’t start 'liking' it halfway through.

"Pretend rape where she doesn’t start 'liking' it halfway through and it isn’t of the BDSM variety. You’d be shocked how little of that there is. Oh and no talking. That ruins it."

Aladayle


49. Squirting.

"Cytherea squirting. I have saved many porns, 90% are squirting. 7% big dicks, 1% real amateur sex with passion, 2% i don’t care as long as the girl comes. Also, guys MUST MAKE NOISE and girl must be wet. OR else it is fake AF."

justavg1


50. Story set-ups get me the most when they’re silly.

"Story set-ups get me the most when they’re silly. Doctors, yoga instructors, mom’s friend, just like anything where I can imagine a story helps. I watch a lot of lesbian porn and cheating porn and enjoy exhibition porn. I also like a very certain kind of power play where the submissive person isn’t cursed at or called a filthy whore but more unwilling and gradually comes around."

NotaNPC


51. Women being sort of forced, usually by older men.

"Women being sort of forced, usually by older men. I don’t know why because I’m usually all for women’s rights and against that sort of thing, but it really gets me.

Other than that, a large range of things. Some days I want to watch a school girl have sex with her teacher and other days I want to see a guy have sex with his straight, male roommate. I have always just assumed most people watched a variety."

PurpleBagsOfVision


52. Fat chicks getting pounded is my jam.

"I love cream pie and cream pie compilations as my go-tos. Other than that fat chicks getting pounded is my jam."

SpringSlayer


53. Authentic jilling videos.

"Authentic jilling videos. I want to see the girl making weird faces, getting that glassy, faraway look in her eyes and having a real orgasm. I can't stand watching some perfectly made-up girl smirking for the camera while smacking her dry vulva, or getting on her knees and doing lots of slow-mo undulating while making Instagram 'sexy duckface' with her ass to the cam. Girls don't masturbate like that.

There was a video I saw about 14 years ago that was a rather plain and pale brunette, small breasts, on her back with a closeup of her very pink lady. The person filming uses a couple drops of lube here and there while slowly exploring her. He makes her cum by manipulating her clit and you can clearly see her spasming, it’s definitely a real orgasm. No dramatic screams of pleasure, no eruption of fluids or any of that nonsense. Just a very beautiful, genuine orgasm.

I wish I remembered the name of the file. It was definitely amateur, and I remember finding videos by a blonde girl with some company called something to do with Angels while trying to search for this girl. I dunno, wish I could remember the name."

Petraretrograde


54. Reluctant Impregnation.

"Personally,
Ravishment
Impregnation
Reluctant Impregnation
Gangbang
Gangbang Impregnation
Creampie (cumpalations)
Loss of Virginity
Domination
Sleeping / Drunk / Drugged
But then other times I just wanna watch a girl in high heels dominate the shit out of a guy who has been caged.

I also feel like I’m a little fucked in the head sometimes cause I really enjoy Like Virgin Forced Gangbang and Jesus it is hot when she comes and feels total pleasure but also is like 'don’t cum inside it is unsafe!'

I am a jumble of contradictions."

SmuttyFanfiction


55. Gay male porn.

"Gay male porn. In straight porn the target audience is men who are attracted to women, therefore the woman is the focus. The man in it tends to be quiet and in the shot as little as possible, since for the majority of the audience that would be a turnoff. The woman also tends to overact, and just be kind of annoying in my opinion, so it’s hard for me to imagine myself in her position. In gay porn, the target audience is men who are attracted to men. I may be a woman who is attracted to men, but it’s closer than the target audience for straight porn, so it’s a lot more enjoyable."

cagedapple


56. A lot of the time I pretend I have a penis when I watch porn.

"I watch a lot of porn.

Usually, I go for the voyeur stuff. Free use. I like the idea of people having sex on the street or wherever they want. And, cuckolding.

Ever since I started watching porn, my tastes have become more niche. It used to be all about massage oil porn stuff for me.

As far as sexual preference goes, I like watching all kinds of people have sex. Body type or gender has never mattered to me that much with porn. By all accounts, I am a straight woman.

Oddly, a lot of the time I pretend I have a penis when I watch porn."

LeahBia


60. Guy-on-guy.

"Guy-on-guy, most definitely. I’m not really into seeing naked women, and although I can appreciate their bodies, I don’t need to watch them having sex. But truthfully, I’d rather watch a gay-themed movie with nice-looking male actors just making out or doing a love scene or sex scene, than watch actual penetration. Gay movies are just better, IMO, especially French or other European films. There are some great French-Canadian gay movies, too. Plus, the men are not afraid to use tongues when they kiss! It’s so much hotter! Americans (and I say this semi-lovingly, as an American) are way too uptight about gay sex and gay kissing. It’s as if they’re afraid to let go, even on film, lest they get pigeonholed."

katfromjersey


61. Choking.

"Choking."

northwestquest


62. Morning sex videos.

"I’m vanilla af so I usually google ‘morning’ since morning sex videos are bound to be slow and enjoyable-looking. I also preview the top vids on pornhub looking at the girl’s face (9/10 I realize it’s not for me). The moment a girl looks like she’s in pain or non-responsive I just get instantly turned off. I also hate it how the hottest actors are also weird about the actual sex bits. I could look at Dane Cook sexily staring at a girl for hours, but the moment his cock’s out I’m like ‘what the hell are you doing to that poor girl, man?’"

zgarbas


63. Anything where it looks like the girl isn’t having a great time.

"Deep-throating, painal, forced stuff, anything where it looks like the girl isn’t having a great time, degrading stuff, and sometimes snuff."

throwaway2211990


64. Painful anal.

"'Painful anal,' but it only really gets me off if it fits some specific guidelines. It has to be legitimately painful. No faking it for the camera, unless I suppose they are really good at faking it. It has to be consensual. Consensual non-consent is even better. I's best if the girl is doing it for money, for 'fame,' or especially just to please her partner. I used to watch sicker shit, but then I had a daughter and toned down my preferences a lot because I can’t participate in terrible porn viewing anymore without getting too emotional/disgusted with myself/the world to finish."

Chick_nFriedSteak


65. Submissive younger guys with long hair with somewhat older women.

"Submissive younger guys (but not bondage s&m or anything like that) with long hair with somewhat older women. Think like 20-year-old guy with 40-year-old woman."

AngryChair169


66. I LOVE cream pies and pulsating cum shots.

"I LOVE cream pies and pulsating cum shots.

I’m all about pleasing a man (has to be significant other) and making sure he finishes and feels accepted.

I honestly hate the sounds the chicks make. Usually guys grunting and heavy breathing is hot, though.

I like to see the motion of in and out imagining I was the one getting pumped."

PeakABoob


67. I like ’em big and muscular and hung and manscaped like grooming is their full-time job.

"I’m a really, absurdly straight cis-woman, and I love me some porn.

It’s just fantasy; I like ’em big and muscular and hung and manscaped like grooming is their full-time job.

It’s just fantasy; I like super high production values.

Wheee, bondage and sensation play! Boo, humiliation and spanking.

Creampies are disturbingly hot; bukkake, not so much.

Boastful hot wife is fun; humiliation-based cuckold stuff is not.

A gangbang is only as sexy as the ugliest dude on the couch, but if they’re all 8s or better it’s ridiculously hot.

I like seeing guys from all different races. I hate it when anybody treats interracial like it’s more scandalous than cannibalism.

I’m down for anal in the context of a dual penetration scene, but am at best bored by it if nobody’s paying attention to the main event.

There is no genre of lesbian porn or solo female that I find enjoyable.
Or fake moaning.

In fact, the less the female performer says, the better. I’m a judgy bitch, and it takes me out of the scene when she sounds like trailer trash or has a lot of piercings or tattoos.

Unless it’s really good femdom, of course—the kind where the Domme is really comfortable in her own skin and isn’t just playing BDSM cliche bingo."

68. Gay male porn.

"Gay male porn. Lots of kissing, wayyy better looking than the dudes in straight porn, and there are (at least) two of them."

69. Anal and DP.

"Anal and DP. Which is funny because I refuse to let a guy ever fuck me in the ass again. Hurt way too much."

SnoopyLoves


70. I imagine myself in a threesome with another girl & 1 guy.

"Normally I use my imagination and imagine myself in a threesome with another girl & 1 guy. Just came across this video in another thread where a guy forcibly shoves his dick in her mouth and I couldn’t help myself but touch myself to that. I think I like rape, but not when it hurts her and she’s crying, but when she submits like a dick loving slut. When I actively search for visual aid, I normally just look for a hot girl with long dark hair, who is fit with big natural tits, knows what she’s doing, and loving it. Oh and I was really into Hentai manga about 7 years ago. I was on 4chan and came across some really amazing stuff. My favorites where (I can’t remember the name)these ones that were drawn in the early 20th century by an American settler who’d draw these elaborate stories of young girls losing their virginity through a series of sex initiations. He would draw the women perfectly, in the best situations & angles."

suburbangangster2121


71. I like a little bit of voyeur stuff and secret sex stuff.

"I like a little bit of voyeur stuff and secret sex stuff. Like people getting off when others are in the room.

I don’t like anyone that looks young (like a teenager) or has tiny boobs only because it makes me think they are young. I love lots of boob play and double teaming but not graphic stuff. I don’t like close ups of vagina either."

"Many times I like the ‘fucking machine’ videos. Where the girls are just pounded with huge dildos going 150mph. I really want one of those machines on my bed."

76. The filthier, the better.

"I’m a 30-year old (voluntary) virgin and my porn is some hella kinky shit. Like from massive insertions to bestiality. It’s not something I’d want to do in real life, but the absolute filthy degradation gets me off. Only thing I’m not into is scat. The filthier, the better. Gay and straight, but not really woman on woman, though sometimes that too. Someone getting completely used in a gang-bang and filled with come is such a turn on. Lactation, preg…I’ve probably desensitized myself a little to 'normal' porn by now, but it’s not like the extreme stuff is necessary to get me off. Sometimes I look at the regular stuff too, but I like to edge myself sometimes for hours before coming, and it’s better the more hardcore the material is, to tease myself with it."

Dear Boys, The Moment She Realizes Her Worth You’re Fucked

Posted: 10 Jan 2017 05:00 PM PST

 Look Catalog
Look Catalog

This is to you. That same boy that keeps her waiting by her phone. The same boy that somehow ruins every relationship she almost gets into. It's like a bell goes off in your head when she's about to be happy and with your sly words, you weasel your way back into her life and heart.

This is to you. The same boy who only ever thought of her as some booty call. The same boy that won’t commit or take her on a real date. The same boy who is only ever down for Netflix and Chill and has a favorite line of

'I never got your text.'

This is to you. The same boy that belittles her and makes her feel bad about herself. The same boy who is the reason she cries herself to sleep. Maybe it makes you feel like a man. Maybe it boosts your own ego knowing someone loves you more than she loves herself. Maybe you like knowing someone will always answer regardless of the time, while you play a silly game of can I do better tonight?

This is to you. The same boy that leads her on. The same boy makes her fall for you when you know you aren’t going to catch her. The same boy that’ll go along with doing things couples do, only you’re

‘not the relationship type'

or has ‘trust issues’ because of an ex. The one who promises her one day. And she waits. And she’s kind and she believes every lie you tell her because she sees something her friends don’t.

This is to you. The same boy she tries so hard for. The same boy that won’t meet her halfway. The same boy who does things not out of kindness and caring but with motives of what can you gain?

This is to you. The boy that ghosted her for no other reason other than she cared too much. But you weren’t man enough to face her.

This is to you the same boy who spits the same lines to every girl he interacts with because of some void. The same boy who says all the right things but never follows through.

The same boy who uses social a pawn in his game.

This is to you. The boy who cheated and swore he wouldn't do it again. The same boy who did. The one who tests her just to see how much he can get away with. And I'm sure she forgave you and gave you a chance you didn't deserve because she's a better person than you'll ever be.

This is to you. The boy who needs control. The one who blames her for things going wrong. And she jumps through hoops trying to make it up to you. And I know you like seeing someone try that hard for you.

But one day that girl is going to realize her worth. She'll fall out of this sick thing she thinks is ‘love’ and she'll learn to love herself. One day she's going to realize how beautiful and wonderful she is. She'll realize what she has to offer is rare.

One day she's going to walk away and never give you a second chance because she'll know the right person only needs one.

One day she'll look at you and laugh because she knew she settled and she’ll wonder why.

One day you'll text her and she won't answer. And it will irk the shit out of you trying to get her attention.

One day you'll ask her on that date she always wanted and she'll say no.

The thing about girls like this, the ones you deem as insecure and desperate and trying too hard, they’re the ones that change you. Because you’ll change the way you treat people after her.

One day you'll regret everything and wish you could apologize.

One day you'll have no other choice but to change into the man that she deserved the whole time because people won’t tolerate your old bullshit.

One day you'll miss her. Her texts. Her attention. Her devotion. Her effort. You'll miss having someone who cared. Because the cold reality is a lot of people are like you and don't. And when you get a taste of your own medicine it’ll be so bitter.

One day you'll see her out and you're going to realize that person you looked past is even prettier now. One day you're going to want her the same way she wanted you all that time.

One day she'll walk by you not even noticing because she'll be holding the hand of a man that adores her. Not a boy. And you'll see her smiling bigger than she ever did with you.

The difference between the two of you is he only has ever dried her tears and never caused them. The difference between the two of you is he realizes he’s the lucky one.

But the main difference between the two of you is he didn't need to treat her like shit to realize her value.

And on that day she'll win.

12 Movies Every Guy I’ve Ever Met Has Screamed At Me For Not Seeing Before (And My Guesses At What The Plots Are)

Posted: 10 Jan 2017 04:30 PM PST

Lord of the Rings
Lord of the Rings

1. Caddyshack: The wet dream of every guy in finance who also thinks he could be a standup comedian.

2. The Big Lebowski: Jeff Bridges says “dude” a lot, or something. Don’t they go bowling? John Goodman holds a gun at one point.

3. Die Hard: Guns. Explosions. Probably a car chase. Minimal dialogue. Somehow Christmas-related.

4. Rudy: He plays football and something horrible happens because anytime a guy brings it up he has to close his eyes and sigh heavily.

5. Animal House: John Belushi gets drunk at college. (Also, there’s no way every man under 35 has seen this movie—yet that doesn’t stop them from having that poster of John Belushi chugging Jack Daniels hanging over their bed freshman year of college. It’s the equivalent red flag of a girl having a Breakfast at Tiffany’s poster in her room.)

6. Fight Club: Brad Pitt punches someone and nobody is allowed to talk about it.

7. Billy Madison/Happy Gilmore: Adam Sandler is in both of these movies and I just know one of them is about golf. Right?

8. Old School: Will Ferrell gets drunk at college.

9. Ghostbusters (the original): Pretty self-explanatory, but I do appreciate guys specifying that they like “the original, ya know, the one with Bill Murray” out of fear that I could mistakenly think that they enjoy a female-led film.

10. Starship Troopers: A war happens in space that is entirely different and unrelated to that other movie franchise about wars in space.

11. Any Lord of the Rings movie: Elijah Wood carries a ring around New Zealand and a bunch of elves and wizards try to fight him. Somehow Martin Freeman is involved and I feel like he doesn’t wear shoes throughout the movie, so I want nothing to do with it.

12. Wedding Crashers: I could kill my own mother and guys would still be more emotionally disturbed over me not seeing this movie. TC mark

Your Standards Are Too Low If You Let Him Get Away With These 16 Bullshit Things

1. Ignoring your texts. He’s not that busy or that forgetful. His phone is always on him. It’s not like he hasn’t seen your message. He knows it’s there. He just doesn’t care.

2. Fucking you without dating you. If you agreed on this arrangement, then have a blast. But if you’re looking for something serious and he’s been stringing you along with empty promises, but still won’t put an actual label on the relationship, you need to kiss him buh-bye.

3. Talking shit about you on social media. If he won’t upload a couple’s picture, but he has no problem posting a status about how pissed he is at an unnamed someone, then a breakup is in order, because he clearly has no respect for you.

4. Calling you emotional. Accusing you of being crazy after you tell him how you’re feeling isn’t okay. You shouldn’t be afraid to open up to him. He should encourage you to express yourself.

5. Having double standards. If he goes days without responding to you, but then gets pissed at you when you won’t answer his texts, he’s a hypocrite. Why should you treat him like a priority when you’re clearly his second (or third or fourth) choice?

6. Introducing you as a friend. Or, even worse, introducing you with your name and nothing else, because he’s worried about labeling you. If he’s not ballsy enough to call you his girlfriend, then you should stop thinking of him as your boyfriend.

7. Guilt tripping you. He shouldn’t make you feel bad for waiting to have sex or for turning down anal. He should respect your body and your opinion.

8. Lying straight to your face. It doesn’t matter if he’s fibbing about his job or his exes. Unless he’s lying about a birthday gift, then it’s unacceptable. You deserve the full truth.

9. Leaving out important info. If he “forgets” to tell you that he ran into his ex last night, it’s just as bad as lying to you. He was intentionally holding back information that he knew you would’ve been interested in hearing.

10. Ignoring your clit. Why should his orgasm be any more important than your orgasm? If you fuck him purely for his benefit, your expectations are way too low.

11. Hiding his phone. If his screen lights up every two seconds, but he won’t tell you who keeps messaging him, there’s a problem. If he has a lock screen with a complicated password, that’s also a problem. In a healthy relationship, there’s no secrecy.

12. Looking at his phone. It’s tempting to look at texts, but if you’re in the middle of telling a story, he shouldn’t grab his phone. If he’s just nodding along while tapping on a screen, he’s only half-paying attention to whatever it is you’re saying.

13. Comparing you to his ex. It’s healthy to know about his past, but if he brings up old girlfriends on the daily, then he’s clearly not over them. Which means you should get over him.

14. Ignoring you when friends are around. If he treats you like a goddess when you’re alone together, and then treats you like trash as soon as other people enter the picture, then he’s not the good guy you thought he was. He’s just another asshole.

15. Saying unacceptable things. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a heated argument. If he calls you a bitch or a cunt — or actually hits you — then an apology isn’t enough. You need to walk away from a guy like that.

16. Cheating. Flirting with another girl is bad enough, but kissing? Or fucking? No. You deserve better. Much better. Never doubt that. TC mark

I’m Warning You: Don’t Fall In Love With Me

Don’t fall in love with me, because I notice everything and overanalyze everything. I will be deeply aware of the smallest change in your voice, the simple tap of your feet, and the way your eyeballs move when talking to me.

Don’t fall in love with me, because I am not ready to commit. I’m not going to be ready, because I have walls greater than that of China with large blocks of insecurities, doubts, and fears.

Don’t fall in love with me, because I’m the universe’s biggest drama queen. You won’t understand why I am misty-eyed over that Nicholas Sparks movie I watched a week ago or why I am so happy to see a random little child smile at me on my way home from a stressful day at school.

Don’t fall in love with me, because I’m different. I wear skirts while everybody else prefers skinny pants and boyfriend jeans. I love large comfy sandals like crocs while everybody else wants to wear those sexy T-strap flats.

Don’t fall in love with me, because I can become obsessed with things. You’ll find me in the middle of the night researching the best mirrorless camera I can get on the market and you’ll be shocked by how I sometimes stay awake until dawn comparing Top 10 lists on the internet.

Don’t fall in love with me, because I’m the most heartless jerk you’ll ever meet. I have this speciality where I can tear your heart into a million pieces, just by using my tongue.

Don’t fall in love with me, because I get disappointed easily. I do not have high expectations, but disappointments still come and it sometimes leads to self-deprivation. You’ll see me lowering my self-esteem and not getting my confidence back.

Don’t fall in love with me, because I have a fear of the unknown and a fear of uncertainties. I overthink the future and you won’t enjoy staying with me once I start expressing my deep thoughts.

Don’t fall in love with me, because I’m strong and independent and at the same time crumbly and soft. Our relationship will be a long battle and I don’t know if you can remain calm and cool throughout that.

Don’t fall in love with me, because I don’t give in freely. Choosing to be with me will give you a lot of hard times and headaches, because I’m going to question everything.

Don’t fall in love with me, because I’m not pretty. I don’t have almond eyes, rosy cheeks, a pointy nose, and strawberry colored lips. I only have a broad forehead, a blemished face, and an awkward smile.

Don’t fall in love with me, because I am hard to be with. Don’t fall in love with me, because I am intimidating. Don’t fall in love with me, because I walk out when I’m mad. Don’t fall in love with me, because I am broken. Don’t fall in love with me, because I can’t sleep with the lights on.

Don’t fall in love with me, because this list could go on and on and on.

But if you do love me the way I am and accept my flaws, I’ll promise to love you with all my heart. TC mark
