    In a way, this is very nice.
    In another, it’s not. :(

    Maybe I’m just not-that-kind-of-guy, but this advice sounds to me a bit like hyperdoing to demonstrate you’re good enough. It puts a great pressure on the guy: you have to be special, extraordinary.
    Argh, gasp, aghhhh… what a burden. ;)

    I know you didn’t mean this way… but still. :)

    • you are special and extraordinary, valter. why do you not feel inspired to express it? :)

        @lucy: “you are special and extraordinary, valter.”
        Not knowing me, thank you for your unconditonal trust. ;)

        @lucy: “why do you not feel inspired to express it?”
        Maybe I’m just lazy? :mrgreen:

        Seriously, have you ever heard about “performance anxiety”?
        Well, it doesn’t happen just in the bed. We men are taught from an early age we have to do a lot to be good; and sometimes it never seems enough.
        And often women aren’t helping, because they want contradictory things from us: we must be strong AND sensitive, equalist BUT romantic, passionate BUT respectful, we must make the first move BUT taking rejection gracefully, etc.
        It’s hard work. :roll:

        And I know it’s true for women as well: being a good mom, keeping the house clean, being hot and fashionable, being a great lover, excelling at work, etc.
        Life in this complex world is hard work. Thus, doing also “supernatural [!] feats of romance” sounds like one more burden. :|

  2. I would say that if you’re single just drink until you drop…
