Say Gerv? I’m balding and I don’t want to shave my head, but my friends say I should.
What should I do?
Anthony, Seaport MA
Anthony, we as men love our hair. It defines us. It embodies us. It’s what makes us who we are. We feel like we have the weaknesses of Samson, our attraction to untrustworthy women and our locks. But that’s all lies when it comes to balding hair. What are you holding on to it for? It starts at your ear goes around the back of your head to your other ear. That’s it. When people look at you from the front you already look bald then you turn sideways and we get a glimpse of the five o’clock shadow on your head. You can’t grow it long because a bald head with a mullet isn’t cool. You can’t braid it because wearing braids on just the back of your head is even less cool. It’s gone, Dave. Say it with me, “My hair is gone!” Don’t you feel better now? So shave it all off. Embrace your baldness. Women nowadays love a man with a bald head (trust me I know). Grow out the mustache and goatee to add to the look. To help you get your head shaved clean you can try HeadBlade razors atHeadBlade.com. It’s specifically designed to shave your head and it will have you looking good. You don’t believe me then just take a look at the picture at the top of the page. Yes Anthony, that’s one sexy man there!
Say Gerv? I have a hard time making the move from making-out to something more. How do I accomplish this?
Cole, Boston MA
Cole this is very important. A date can end abruptly with no chance for another if you make the wrong move. Always look for signals. Women are always giving men signals, the problem is most of the time we miss them. Some of these signals are playing with her hair, the and the classic laughing at your corny jokes. If you pick up on these signals then it’s an easy transition from kissing to finding out if she speaks in tongue. If you don’t then you’ll be making your one allowed phone call from the county jail. It’s tough nowadays for a young man. This is the reason why you must pay attention. Remember no means no. You never want to force a situation and I know this might not sound cool, but when in doubt just ask. There is no shame in knowing what you can and can’t do and asking to find out. Trust me she will let you know. Communication is the biggest key to any relationship. So if you’re bad at the signals like me, just flat out ask her “Hey, can I can I kiss you?” If she looks at you like you’re crazy just tell her you didn’t want to offend her, cross the line or go too far without her permission. At this point, she has two options. Tell you no or tell you yes and to have at it. Either way, you are a good guy because you asked before you touched, and isn’t that what your momma always told you?
Say Gerv? I just got my first condo, but I don’t want it to be a bachelor pad. How do I make it more woman friendly?
Justin, South Boston, MA
Justin, I must say I’m glad to see you’re even thinking about this. I can remember my first place. Beer cooler in the corner, dart board, poker table, lawn chairs, dead plants, dark colors, funny smells. Ahhhh my first place, the memories. Even though I was a chick magnet back then it was still tough to get the ladies to want to come over. So the easiest way to make your place more woman-friendly is to just ask one of your female friends to help you decorate. Preferably one you like and are looking to get to know better. I know, it’s genius, you can thank me later. See you’re killing two birds with one stone, getting your place decorated with a more neutral tone, and by having a female you like help it lets her see another side of you. The kinder/gentler side. She’ll love to spend your money decorating. She’ll get all into it and feel a sense of pride and satisfaction knowing your place looks great because of her personal touch. By letting her add her input you’ll get it woman-friendly, but you can also keep your bachelor feel. Then when it’s all done you can invite her over for dinner (follow the advice I gave Cole above) and enjoy your new place and all the wonderful new memories you’ll be making in it.
