Catching Feelings (Catchin’ Feelin’s) is a slang term that basically amounts to you can’t just let a good, fun, mutually-beneficial, probably-sexual relationship be what it naturally is, and you feel the need to add ish into the game that wasn’t originally a part of it, and all of a sudden, you turn into a Klingon (see what I did there?.. Cling-On? >:D) and start overplaying your position, trying to put labels on the situation, and campaigning for exclusivity when nobody offered you that in the first place.

Bros Before Hoes (Guy Code)

Bros Before Hoes” is generally misinterpreted to mean that anybody who is male gets preferential treatment in any situation where he’s in active or passive competition with a female.

An example of this is this 2008 election t-shirt design featuring Joe Biden and Sarah Palin:

This is not actually what Bros Before Hoes means, or what it stands for. Continue reading “Bros Before Hoes (Guy Code)”

Girls Don’t Have Friends That Are Guys

Now.. Before you start crying about the title, haha “Girls don’t have friends that are guys” is a direct quote from Vinny on Jersey Shore, from when Sammi was trying to convince Ronnie that this other guy she invited to come see her at a club was a “friend” of hers.

I already talked about that situation in “We’re Just Friends!!!”, so go check that out if you want the background details from the episode. Right now, I want to speak generally about people who pretend to be “friends” with other people. Continue reading “Girls Don’t Have Friends That Are Guys”

Why Men Rebound So Quickly

Reader “Nikki” asked me my thoughts about why men rebound so quickly after a “relationship” ends.

If you’re not aware of what “the rebound” is, it’s the time period between when you exit one relationship and feel like attempting to enter a new one. If someone breaks up with a bf/gf/wife/husband and you meet them before they get over it, that’s called “catching them on the rebound”, like in basketball.

Once they feel like being involved in relationships again, they’ve exited rebound status. Just because you meet someone shortly after they break up with someone doesn’t mean they haven’t gotten over it already.. especially if the breakup was THEIR idea to begin with.

If there were actual statistics, I’m sure they’d indicate that guys in general get over relationships ending more quickly than gals do. That’s what we’re going to discuss in this article. Continue reading “Why Men Rebound So Quickly”
