  • Women Need a Man With CASH!

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    Ya know, we COULD look at this survey about women refusing to date guys without money and get angry.  But we won't.  Because it's actually weirdly refreshing to see this kind of honesty.  Even if it's materialistic, depressing honesty.

     

    In a new survey, 79% of single women say they'd have a SERIOUS PROBLEM dating a man who makes less money than they do.

     

    59% say they'd have a problem dating someone who didn't have their same level of education.

     

    And a lot of them would end things even if everything else about the guy seemed GREAT.  24% of women said they'd probably stop dating a guy immediately if they found out he made less money.  9% would DEFINITELY stop dating him right away.

     

    Men are much less concerned about what a woman makes.  68% of men said they don't care how much money a woman makes and only 47% said they care about dating a woman who had their same level of education.

  • Who Says Romance is Dead!

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    If you try to make a grand romantic gesture, and almost die in the process, does that make it more romantic? Or less romantic?  For this guy's sake, let's say MORE.

     

    This month, in Chongqing in southern China, a man named Hu Seng decided to surprise his girlfriend by having his friend seal him in a CARDBOARD BOX, then had him delivered to her place by a courier.

     

    There was only one problem.  He didn't poke holes in the box for air, because he was afraid they'd ruin the surprise.

     

    The courier service didn't realize there was a man in the box, and it took them three hours to deliver him, instead of the 30 minutes Hu expected.  So by the time Hu's girlfriend opened it, he'd PASSED OUT.

     

    But paramedics came and were able to revive him.
