Email: Earth, not Mars or Venus [EH]

Men predominantly adopt the sex-then-love approach -- that is the basic Mars-Venus message -- but it is wrong not because women's way is the right way per se but because love-then-sex is what women need. You can't build a two-way relationship based only on what the man wants and a two-way relationship implies (and requires) that the man gives the woman what makes her happy (since love is primarily about happiness not sex). Any man who cannot come around to that understanding is not going to have a successful two-way relationship.

Email: Not a cow boy [EH]

Get Smart is [a] very good [movie], better than I expected from the reviews I read beforehand (which I always do to make an informed decision).

If you can at all not worry about something then it is wise to do so (not worry) and I certainly would not put that much existential stock in eharmony. (My first match was an evangelical pain in the ass.)

Yes, I know about the Chik-Fil-A dress-like-a-cow day but (a) I will not demean myself for free food [therefore I do not have anything bovine in my wardrobe] and (b) if I knew anyone who could dress up like a cow, would I really want to continue to know him or her?
