Five Real Ways To Lose A Guy.

A while back I saw the movie 'How to loose a guy in 10 days' If you're not familiar with it, it's about an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. An NYC journalist covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." Although I know it's morally incorect and cruel my curiosity took the best of me. To write this blog post, like the movie what better way to know how things would workout than to experience it for my self. Theres a lot of things most guys would not be honest about. The fact is there are real things you can do to loose a guy if your not careful and it can happen to you. I know its really wrong of me to list this and I know people are going to call me a pr*ck for saying all of these things, but I’m trying to help you. I’m not here to tell you what you want to hear, I’m here to tell you the truth. Better have a bruised ego now than a broken heart later. Toughen up and pay attention.

Loose your looks 

Start gaining weight, stop dressing up, stop doing your make up, stop doing your hair, just stop giving a crap about what you look. If your already wearing a lot of sweat pants in front of your boyfriend, your half way there. Dress like a slob as much as you can and he’ll be out of there. Oh and remember stop shaving everywhere! Make him forget about the hottie he first met. You don’t need to be a model but you do need to maintain the same level of beauty from when you first met. In an ideal world looks shouldn’t matter but in the REAL world they do. At the very least, men think putting in the effort is attractive. Men are visually stimulated, thats an accepted fact, most of you who are reading this are emotionally stimulated. Just an example, how would you feel if your guy stopped being the gentleman he was when you first met? EXACTLY. Keeping men visually happy is no less unreasonable than keeping you emotionally happy, it's all about effort. Rug burn during sex is awesome (insert sarcasm) 


Nag him about everything, be sure to nag him about anything that aren’t really important in the big picture but are “important to you”. Blow things out of proportion and always sweat the small stuff. This will really help to start arguments over nothing. Your relationship will be over in no time. Remember nagging your man constantly will remind him of his mother. And of course men loves being nagged by their mothers. So go ahead nag him out of your life! 

Be Negative

Complain about everything. Your friends, your family, your job, your clothes, your hair, everything! B*tch, b*tch, b*tch, b*tch! Make sure that listening to your complaints and supporting your misery is his second job. Don’t make him just your boyfriend, make him your therapist. It's ok to share your problems with your guy BUT if you talk about your problems 24/7 prepare to be single!

Don’t be fun to be with

Stop smiling, laughing, and stop having a good time. This way when you guys go out and he sees other couples having a great time, he’ll be sure to remember what he’s been missing. Lastly, most importantly and most obvious…

Stop having sex

Be sure to never be in the mood, and make sure that when you do eventually have sex, make sure you make him feel like it’s an obligation and not because you actually care about him. Here are some bonus points, stop all physical contact, stop all affection, stop holding hands and stop kissing. Don’t even refer to him with sweet pet names, just have no warmth what so ever so he will go running to another ones arm. Men need sex and affection, it is a primal need. If you are not boning your man he is boning someone else. 

Now this list may sound really superficial but guess what, have you ever met a guy?! We are superficial. We are dumb stupid animals, and guys want to be around some one who makes them happy. That is the bottom line. Unfortunately for you, guys don’t put as much time on loyalty or "time serve", if you don’t keep him happy he will absolutely leave you. He wont tell you the real reason he’s leaving you but I will. He will probably feel bad about leaving since you have “history” but do these things and he will still leave. Any man who denies this is a liar who is telling you what you want to hear which is a good sign. It means he loves you enough to spare your feelings. If your man has said any of these things to you without sensitivity and even used these as a threat to leave then he is a selfish d*ck. Leave him. Yes, I’m being an insensitive prat here but hey I’m not your boyfriend.

But through out the pain, hurt, inconvenience and nuisance you have put him through and in the end this person is still there hanging on to you, your relationship or a potential romance then maybe, just maybe you have to step back, look at the bigger picture and change your outlook on this person. What ever your reason is for wanting to leave, think Where you stand with him, would you be sad when he finally leaves? Are you passing up 8’s to snag a mythical 10? I know theres a lot of you out there that will say “Hey I don’t have the time to keep him happy, well you know what? You don’t need a man either. If you totally neglect what a man really want, you will have all the time in the world cause you won’t have a man anymore. And thats the truth.

Country Song On The Juke Box This Summer

The spring/summer season is now firmly upon us, so what does that mean for fashion trends in men’s clothes. Well, town really does meet country this season, cosmopolitan boys around the world will be donning their checked shirts, throwing on a pair of camel-coloured boots, and strutting their funky bumpkin/preppy stuff throughout the urban jungle.

This is great news for most of you guys, because you will not have to rush out and buy yourself a completely new wardrobe. Rather, this trend is borrowing from recent fashions, but with twists and turns to bring together a whole new look. This recent movement is neither townie nor country, taking from both to create a new, exciting, and unique style that will produce incredible results when pulled off successfully.

The country feature of this new style comes from the traditional, upper-class look. Plenty of plain white Ts, as well as the lumberjack/tree-feller style shirts are big news this season. Bring out your checked preppy, geek-chic, shirts for another year; they fit perfectly with the country/townie look, giving a completely new identity to these men’s clothes. Great news then as there is no need to rush out and buy a number of new items, last years are perfect, feeling current and fashionable. Make the most of it, because that isn’t how fashion trends normally work.

Now we come to the town side of the fashion; bring out your chinos, the bright coloured trousers stashed away at the back and possibly even your braces when feeling brave. The successful conjoining of town and country will put together a flair of the outdoors with the tailored, slim-cut, geek-chic look. Keep your skinny jeans to hand as this summer they are perfect – team them with large, oversized denim shirt on top of a tank top and finish off the outfit off with either bright coloured sleepers/sandals, or a narrow pair of boat shoes – depending on whether you lean more to the country or more to the townie tendencies of the modern world.

Remember, simple with a touch of bright pastel colour is key this season, do this by layering the upper portions with shirts, jumpers, and waistcoats – this will give an extremely masculine air to your silhouette. Clearly, you should not be too excessive in your layering (a maximum of 2 layers at a time as a general rule), otherwise the look you create is too ‘busy’ giving a confused appearance to the outfit.

Colours are of particular interest this season; boldness being all the rage – if you are brave enough opt for brightly coloured chinos, make sure to pair it with a neutrally coloured top half. When it comes to colour schemes, bear in mind: only wear one item of bright clothing, if you elect for a bright shirt, then wear neutral coloured bottoms, and vice versa – too much colour, and you risk pulling off a country/townie/clowny look – fashion senses are not sophisticated enough to cope with that cacophony just yet.
