Delaware has become the 11th state to legalize same-sex marriage, just a week after Rhode Island sewed up New England for its freedom-loving freely-loving gay population.
The Delaware state Senate today ... Continue reading
Can YOU select Celine Dion's greatest song? Think it over. You get ONE choice.
Hope you weren't misled by that album cover, because Celine's greatest song is NOT on Falling Into You (which won the Grammy for Album of the Year, by the way). The year is 1999. Whitney Houston is rebounding with a bona fide dance masterpiece called "It's Not Right, But It's OK." Madonna is kicking ass (and rebounding from self-seriousness, I suppose) with "Beautiful Stranger." And Celine Dion , the refined eveningwear-clad songbird, rebounds from austerity with a kickass, empowering, sweetly energetic jam called "That's the Way It Is." It is her best song.
It is the song that is most truly Celinedion (which can only be pronounced as one French word). The best! The best!
It may be the ultimate car jam. It is certainly on my mix CDs, and I still make those, guys . In case there's any doubt that "That's the Way It Is" is more representative of Celine's rambunctious energy than standard picks for Best Celine Jam like "It's All Coming Back To Me," "Because You Loved Me," or "My Heart Will Go On," look no further than the following video, which I believe is the pinnacle of YouTube and the best video tribute to a celebrity I've ever seen.
Everything about her exudes "That's the Way It Is." Everything. Did you guess wrong? Fight with me.
Happy birthday, Celine! Continue reading

1. Recent Photos - Having recent photos in your online profile is going to guarantee connections go per plan. You wouldn't like a guy showing up at your door looking nothing like his photo.
Neither does your potential date. Not having a photo is not an excuse anymore, and if you do not have a recent photo there is always a suspicious reason why...
2. Age is YOUR age - Just because YOU think you look 30 doesn't mean you are.
You are actually 39 and you need to say it. A friend of mine lies about his age by three years. He tells guys when he gets called on it that the system didn't update his age.
Really? On all 4 of your different profiles on different systems? That is amazing!
People have a right not to want you for whatever reason just like you do. No one wants to be lied to. Just be honest.
If someone thinks you are too old, then they'll be missing out on a great opportunity. It is their loss. If you feel a need to lie in order to meet guys, then you need to take a hard look at yourself because you have bigger problems going on.
3. Explain the Plan - Nothing can ruin a hot moment more then inviting a guy over for some fun and then making him watch Muriel's Wedding and cuddle first. Make sure you explain the plan ahead of time.
Are you just hooking up? Are you going to hang out before? Can they spend the night or not?
Just be clear. This will save you from awkwardness or confused expectations.
4. Play Safe - I hate that I still have to even mention this.
I would think by now our community would be playing safe but this is not the case. Just because he tells you he is clean, or his last test was 3 weeks ago, does not mean you should trust him. Make sure you make the right decision.
5. "I'll Call You" - How many times do guys say this (Or how many times have you said it?) and did not mean it? Save yourself the trouble and the bad karma, and don't make promises you are not going to keep. If you want to call, then ask for their number or, better yet, give them yours.
It comes down to being honest. You save so much time and hurt feelings if you are just honest.
6. Be Respectful - You are both consenting adults so be respectful of each other.
If they do not like something he wants to do, stop. Likewise, don't pressure someone into doing anything he doesn't want to do. Also be respectful of their discretion.
You do not want to walk the "walk of shame" when word gets out about what you do in bed, so give them the same courtesy; no one wants to hear over brunch what someone said about them to every gay in town.
7. Have Fun - I receive tons of emails on meeting men and hooking up. Is it OK?
Should I do them on the first date? Should I not? That's up to you, and it doesn't mean it will lead to love or even a friend.
Hooking up doesn't make you are a slut, either. Just choose what works best for you, your life and your goals. And don't judge others about their personal business.
We each need to live our own lives and keep our noses out of others. Continue reading
However he was smart, and funny, of indeterminate late 20 s, early 30 s age, with short brown hair in a boyish cut that reminded me of Wally Cleaver. He had a cute face, and a well-defined chest with just the right amount of hair on it. There was something devilish in his eyes, like you get with a conservative looking guy who s really a bad boy in disguise.
He was captivating. We found ourselves making out there in the ventilated room with ten to fifteen other smokers seated around watching us, dragging on their cigarettes, re-crossing their legs, and exhaling in their own carcinogenic ballet. Eventually we made it out of what to me seemed like a burning building, and were glued to each other for the rest of the night.
During our party spinning we would pause in the smokers lounge for his nicotine fix before continuing our lust fete in the various nooks and crannies that we found secreted away in the old Russian bathhouse near Wall Street where this monthly soiree is hosted. I kept thinking that I would be more affected by the taste of cigarettes in his mouth when we kissed, but oddly this time it wasn t grossing me out. Perhaps it was because we always had complementary cocktails on hand, or perhaps it was that we were horny and easy.
Who can say why people are drawn together by firing pheromones, but it was intoxicating and we were going for it. At the end of the night - or rather at 5 a.m. when they turned on the lights and kicked everyone out - we exchanged phone numbers outside on the curb before grabbing our separate cabs.
I asked him to come home with me but evidently he had things to do early that day. However, he said I really would like to see you again, like on a date maybe? Then he exhaled forcefully and jammed his tongue in my mouth for one last taste of goodnight ashtray.
Yes a date I said, and thought maybe. I wondered if I could date a smoker seeing as how it s one of my deal breakers. Those pre-determined rules we make for ourselves usually based on bad experiences that define our bottom lines.
Hooking up with a smoker at a party is one thing, a lot can be overlooked when you just need to get laid, but in real life I m wondering how flexible I can be. Being an ex-smoker myself I already know why I don t want cigarettes in my life. Thinking about all the allowances I ve made dating guys who I knew were wrong for me simply because I was lonely, or horny got me thinking; Should deal breakers be malleable and subject to our misguided sex drives?
It got me wondering, how strict should we be when it comes to our deal breakers? And which ones are reasonable enough to include in our personal constitutions? So, we-the-people-in-order-to-form-a-more-perfect-union: What are YOUR deal breakers and which ones do you forgive?
