I had invited him over only for sex, so when I woke the next morning to the sight of him putting on his pants, I said, “Do you need me to walk you out?” “No, I’m just going to use the bathroom,” he said. “I’d like to stay, if that’s O.K.” And it was. So he stayed for the rest of the day, never more than a few inches from me. We left the room only to use the bathroom or to shuffle to the kitchen for snacks. Meanwhile, my roommates laughed, gossiping about my “sexcapade with the cute guy from Tinder.” “I think you’re the girl of my dreams,” he said. “I can’t believe we met on Tinder.” I had never been the girl of anyone’s dreams —
Comments: Disclaimer: Do NOT read the article. The New York Times wastes all this ink on what appears to be a page from her diary (or plagiarized from a romance novel). Ulubay, a recent college graduate who wrote film reviews at Northeastern University is dispensing dating (sex) advice for millennials. She sounds more like a future ticking time bomb for initiating a sexual harassment lawsuit against the Old Grey Lady, or whoever hires her. Quote the Maitre D´ from "Ferris Bueller´s Day Off": "I weep for the future."
OP, you were right. I shouldn’t have read the article. It is self -absorbed crap. I still don’t get the point other than that she sleeps around, likes flattery, and doesn’t understand why the men she sleeps with don’t come around for a second shot. A truly ridiculous article.
Clearly, we have lost the concept of shame. This is not a healthy lifestyle either physically or mentally. Sounds like someone who likes to sleep around and is proud of it. In my day, she would be called a tramp or worse, someone who has zero self-respect. This is not the pathway to a happy and healthy life.
Young ladies, do not throw your self-respect out the window. It is the backbone of your character in so many ways.
She works in the Boston Mayor´s office ... government "relations". I wonder.. if the mayor hit on her after reading this, would it be sexual harassment? "You are the girl of my dreams..." Would that do him in?
While I won´t condemn young people for being more sexually active, thinking that a guy and a gal "hooking up" on a first date will lead to anything permanent is seriously screwed up. She is looking for Prince Charming while mucking out the stables and seems surprised and disappointed that he isn´t there.
Her sex toy for the night used nice words, sounding like he was using polite fictions about their situation. He stayed close to her, paid attention, and made her feel good. That actually seems better than I might expect from a one night stand.
Her complaint seems to be he wasn´t honest. What did she expect? One night stands are all about sexual fantasy. The fact that he kept the fantasy going beyond the first go round seems pretty nice. It is only in HER head that fantasy and reality are commingled.
I read it on a Russian news site (which hasn´t sent me a virus, yet)(to find it search the title with the author).
What a depressing, sad, sick article/woman. She obviously feels an emotional attachment to men she sleeps with and has had her poor head too filled with nonsense by her environment (friends and professors) to even recognize that she does. Note to Gabrielle: go back and read the poets, women (who are not morally demolished) form an emotional attachment when having sex, men (usually) do not. The feminists can scream and yell, but they can´t change human nature.
Good grief! Are modern young women really so naively ignorant and self-absorbed?
The feminist movement has convinced women to lower their standards so carelessly that they are perceived now as nothing more than "hook-ups" to be enjoyed and then discarded - young ´feminists´ are seen as requiring no commitment, no responsibility, no respect.
Men who are seeking long-time companions and mothers for their future children, are not looking for them in bars, on hook-up apps, or in personal ads - a one night stand, no matter what they say, is not their idea of the perfect woman.
Women, if you are truly seeking men who will fill your lives with devotion, respect, and loving admiration, forget your whiny selves for a few moments and volunteer at your church, your nearest school, a local hospital, local charities - those are the places where you will meet the sincere, concerned, unselfish men whom you are seeking. Never mind, "use your words" - if you can throw off the shackles of self-pity long enough and your hearts are truly invested in helping others, by volunteering in those places, you may find yourself growing in dignity, self-respect, and confidence - the very qualities that attract good men of honor and merit.
The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal. Sanders says, “Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown,” adding,
The Russian spy ship first spotted near American waters last year is making its way back in the direction of the U.S., Fox News confirmed on Thursday. The Victor Leonov is still in the Caribbean, according to officials, but heading north off the coast of Florida, home to a U.S. Navy base located in North Florida, east of Jacksonville. The ship could be off the Florida coast by Friday if the ship maintains present course and speed, according to officials. There is also a ballistic missile submarine base located in southern Georgia known as Kings Bay, which is another likely destination for the spy ship to loiter and watch U.S. “boomers” —
New York - Tim Tebow will be at spring training with the New York Mets. The 30-year-old outfielder was among nine spring training invitees announced by the team Friday. The former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback is preparing for his second professional baseball season. He hit .226 with eight homers, 52 RBIs and 126 strikeouts in 126 games last year at Class A with Columbia in the South Atlantic League and Port St. Lucie in the Florida State League. Tebow was 4 for 27 (.148) with no extra-base hits, one walk and eight strikeouts in nine spring training games for the Mets last year.
Interest in a classified House Intelligence Committee memo, which reportedly outlines how the anti-Trump dossier was used by the FBI to justify surveillance against Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, has caused an online frenzy. Late Thursday, WikiLeaks jumped into the proceedings, offering a reward of up to $1 million to anyone who could send them a copy. Meanwhile, reports emerged that the Twitter hashtag calling for the memo’s public release — #ReleaseTheMemo — was receiving a major online push by Russian-linked Twitter accounts. According to the Hamilton 68 Dashboard, an independent tracker of Russian online
An illegal immigrant facing murder charges for the killing of two law enforcement officers in Northern California went off the rails during his most recent court hearing and said, with a grin on his face, “I wish I had killed more,” Fox News reported. This is what the sanctuary-loving left wants to shelter from the deportation storm? Luis Enrique Monroy Bracamontes, 37, is a Mexican citizen who stands accused of killing two officers, Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr., in 2014 — at a time when he was in America illegally. His past court appearances have been marked by strange
Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman can’t seem to rid himself of the “bad boy” image. Rodman was arrested on suspicion of DUI on Saturday in Newport Beach, California, after police say he was “driving like a maniac and blaring music,” TMZ reports. The bigger problem for the former Chicago Bulls star, though, is that he is on probation for a July of 2016 hit-and-run incident in which he was driving the wrong way. This latest arrest could revoke Rodman’s three-year probation and force him to serve prison time, TMZ reports. Rodman was reportedly cooperative with police.
The Senate won’t vote on an immigration deal unless it has President Trump’s support, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday, effectively dooming the Gang of Six bill even before a bipartisan group of lawmakers officially introduced it. Mr. McConnell said they are waiting to see exactly what Mr. Trump will sign, but the president has said the bill written by Sens. Lindsey Graham and Richard Durbin was rejected by the White House last week, so it’s not the basis for negotiations. “I’m looking for something that President Trump supports and he has not indicated what measure he is willing to sign,” Mr. McConnell told
The Bible tells Christians to beware, that to follow Jesus paves the way for a life of challenge, mocking and persecution — that specifically, as Matthew 10:22 states, “you will be hated by all for [His] name’s sake.” (Snip) Fully 215 million Christians are right now facing “high levels of persecution” in 60 different countries, with “Islamic oppression” the driving factor in eight of the top ten, the nonprofit found, in its latest World Watch List 2018. North Korea, for the 16th year in a row, ranked worst for Christian persecution. That’s followed, in order, by Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, Pakistan, Eritrea, Libya, Iraq, Yemen
Americans can travel to North Korea, if they wish -- but it may just be a death wish, the U.S. State Department cautioned. The State Department last week issued a stark warning to people setting out for the Hermit Kingdom, cautioning that anyone heading to the dangerous dictatorship should prepare for the possibility of not returning. “The U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in North Korea as it does not have diplomatic or consular relations with North Korea,” the State Department published Wednesday on its website. Those who wish to travel to North Korea must be approved for a
The “Gang of Six” amnesty for millions of illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program should be rolled “straight into the trash can,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) says. On Wednesday, a group of six pro-amnesty Senators will roll out their expansive immigration amnesty plan that would not only give a pathway to U.S. citizenship beginning with 3.5 million DACA and DACA-eligible illegal aliens but also give amnesty to the parents of amnesty beneficiaries. Cotton — whose popular legal immigration-cutting RAISE Act was endorsed by President
Tokyo - Japanese public broadcaster NHK says its erroneous alert of a North Korean missile fired at Japan was sent by a staff member who meant to file a different news flash. NHK denied any mechanical flaw and said Wednesday it is studying preventive measures. The erroneous news flash Tuesday said North Korea appeared to have fired a missile at Japan and that the government was warning people to take shelter. NHK retracted the mistake within minutes and apologized on air and on other formats. NHK isn't sure how many of its 300,000 social media followers saw the alert or notification and it's unknown if anyone followed the
Participants in a 20-nation summit on the North Korean nuclear threat have called for continued sanctions on the country, in an effort to pressure the regime to give up its rapidly advancing nuclear programme. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who participated in the one-day meeting in Vancouver, Canada, said the event sent a simple message: "We will not accept a nuclear-armed North Korea." The sentiment was echoed by Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono, who urged the international community not to ease up on North Korea despite its recent cooperation with the South. "It is not the time to ease pressure or to reward
1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are
It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party. But listen to any number of Republicans and
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York pinned the government shutdown on President Donald Trump, saying it has become "next to impossible" to negotiate with the White House.In a press availability, Schumer said he and Trump have been close to a deal to fund the government at least once.But, he said the "hard right" in the Republican Party later convinces Trump not to strike a deal with him."[Trump] won´t take yes for an answer," Schumer said. (Tweet) Schumer said that he does not know whether Trump´s apparent waffling on a deal is the work of adviser Stephen Miller, a
The Daily Caller journalist Chuck Ross has some extremely interesting information released today surrounding former top FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ/FBI liaison attorney Lisa Page which includes a disclosure by top FBI officials that text messages between Strzok and Page have gone missing. (Snip) According to information relayed to Senator Ron Johnson, the period of time the FBI has “lost” is from December 14th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017, the exact day that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to lead the Russia collusion probe. As CTH has previously outlined the same “small group” inside the DOJ and FBI,
Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it. The other day, President Trump was discussing Russia at a press conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.” Yeah, it didn’t make any sense. But he really can’t seem to get past her. Recently while promoting tax
Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no
Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week. In the last few days alone, groups of illegal aliens boarded planes at airports in Texas and Arizona accompanied by a taxpayer-funded government escort in civilian clothes to avoid drawing attention. The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis. (Snip) The illegal aliens wear red HHS wrist bands and receive “the gold glove treatment,” according to a veteran federal official,
According to Representative Dave Joyce (R-OH14) the House Intelligence Committee will hold a vote on the release of the four-page Nunes memo that reveals systemic corruption within the DOJ and FBI; including the unlawful use of FISA-702(16)(17) data searches which were part of an elaborate DOJ-FBI surveillance program on the political campaign of Donald Trump. (Tweet) Additionally, Chad Pergram reported that Chairman Devin Nunes met with Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte to discuss the best process to release the memo. There are generally two ways it could be done, the HPSCI vote is the most likely.As more people have become aware
The burn continues. What follows are 138 years of scientific records tracing the human transformation of Earth’s climate. The bold pink line up top represents 2017, the third-hottest on record. The only years to exceed it—2015 and 2016—occurred amid a powerful El Nino weather pattern that ripped heat from the Pacific Ocean into the atmosphere. In the absence of El Nino, the swelter of 2017 was unprecedented.
There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.
Comic book readers are apparently not fans of progressive politics—a fact no more evident in Marvel’s decision to cancel every single one of its comics that has been nominated by the LGBTQ advocacy group, GLAAD. In December, the publisher announced its decision to cancel many of its comics, citing poor sales. LGBTQ, feminist, and social justice-themed comics involving stories that revolved around Black Lives Matter, illegal immigration, and LGBTQ issues were among those to end up on the chopping block.
Adam Schiff, reputedly a champion leaker from the House Intelligence Committee when it came to Russiagate material, suddenly thinks Ignorance is Bliss when it comes to the FISA warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign. Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see. Do you think Democrats are starting to panic? (Video) Rush
