Guys vs. Games

September 16, 2008

My article got published today on GamesRadar ^^ w00t! Please digg it ❤

My article is a response to the GamesRadar article “Girls vs. Games” and it examines guys in the following categories: reliability, love, commitment, memory, and generosity. Head on over to the site to read all of the juicy details…

GamesRadar: Guys vs. Games

I found this interesting digg today- apparently us women prefer men with a bit of stubble. Also interesting to note- clean-shaven men were voted 2nd least attractive and the very least attractive went to those sporting a full beard. Here we see yet again that moderation is key.

I’m not exactly sure where I stand on this issue- the other day I definitely did a double-take of a guy that I see often, because he had some stubble. It gave him a certain George Clooney-esque look. On the other hand, though, getting a kiss from someone with a sandpapery face isn’t very pleasant.

Each to their own 🙂

Speaking of music…

One of my recent posts reminded me vaguely of an xkcd comic that I love… very scary.

Something to watch out for…

Some questions to ask to help avoid this situation:

  • When did you start liking the band?
  • What are your favourite lyrics?
  • What’s the lead singer’s name again? I forget…
  • Did you go the concert the last time they were in town? When was it?
  • Is the band touring right now?
  • Did they make any South Park/Simpsons appearances?
  • Do you have any of their merch?
  • What do you think of their music video where they employed ______ technique in ______ their lyrics?
  • etc.

You will have to take the answers, though, with a grain of salt if you know that the person is the heavy googler/researcher type. Some people will do/learn anything to impress you or to even be competitive (having more knowledge on the subject than yourself), so of course don’t use music as a selection technique… even if punk boys are super cute, and you just can’t help yourself. Just sayin’.
