Jezebel’s recent piece The Unfuckables is a funny rundown of specific things men did that kept the writer, and many posters, from considering sex with them (number 12 is ‘Telling me how hard you are going to fuck me is only hot when we are a) naked and b) on the verge of fucking. In a well-lit bar in front of 10 of our colleagues at a work event, it’s presumptuous and gross.’ Comments include: ‘Don’t explain your affinity for Black women by saying, "I saw this porno once, and there was this White guy eating out a Black chick and I thought One day, I want to be that guy! "’).
Pretty much a ‘What not to do when hitting on someone or while on a first date’ free-for-all (guys weigh in, too, with gems like ‘Don’t name my penis and talk to it in a baby voice’).
Feministe did a follow-up called How Not to Get it On that includes the gem: Don’t tell me you know “this great little Italian place” and then take me to the Olive Garden.
Anyone else have helpful dating tips based on personal experience?
