Taraji P. Henson in First Trailer for Adam Shankman’s ‘What Men Want’
“I’m so sick of this boys club!” Paramount Pictures has debuted the first full trailer for a funky workplace comedy titled What Men Want, starring the Oscar-nominated Taraji P. Henson as a successful sports agent. The movie is the latest directed by Adam Shankman (The Wedding Planner, Bringing Down the House, Hairspray, Bedtime Stories, and Rock of Ages) and comes from a story written by Nancy Meyers (Father of the Bride, Something’s Gotta Give, The Holiday, The Intern). The movie features a twist where she suddenly gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts, which gives her an edge on signing the next basketball superstar. The cast includes Aldis Hodge, Richard Roundtree, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Tracy Morgan. I will say this actually looks quite funny despite being very cheesy, but I’m down to give it a shot.
Here’s the first official trailer for Adam Shankman’s What Men Want, direct from Paramount’s YouTube:
Ali (Taraji P. Henson) is a successful sports agent who’s constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When Ali is passed up for a well-deserved promotion, she questions what else she needs to do to succeed in a man’s world… until she gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts! With her newfound power, Ali looks to outsmart her colleagues as she races to sign the next basketball superstar, but the lengths she has to go to will put her relationship with her best friends and a potential new love interest (Aldis Hodge) to the test. What Men Want is directed by American producer/filmmaker Adam Shankman, director of the films The Wedding Planner, A Walk to Remember, Bringing Down the House, The Pacifier, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, Hairspray, Bedtime Stories, and Rock of Ages previously. The story is by Nancy Meyers (of Father of the Bride, Something’s Gotta Give, The Holiday, The Intern), a flip on her film What Women Want. Paramount will release What Men Want in theaters everywhere starting January 11th, 2019 early next year. You in?

X-Men: The Last Stand 2006
Critics Consensus: X-Men: The Last Stand provides plenty of mutant action for fans of the franchise, even if it does so at the expense of its predecessors’ deeper character moments.

Critic Reviews for X-Men: The Last Stand
Sillier than the Singer versions, Ratner’s movie is also — for this less-than-reverent X-Men fan — more satisfying.
X-Men: The Last Stand has shifted the shape of the franchise from pretty good, if uninspired, to terrifically entertaining.
[I] found myself strangely moved by the sense of relationships, friendly and unfriendly, coming to an end in a dull return to normality in the world of humans and mutants.
What a comedown, after the weirdly beautiful things Singer and his technicians did in the first two movies.
The Last Stand is a hugely ambitious picture, and it would have been far more successful if Ratner had scaled it down to focus more on the interaction between the characters.
[Director] Ratner makes a hash of the story and characters his predecessor brought to such complex, sympathetic life, delivering a pumped-up exercise in mayhem, carnage and blunt-force trauma.
The CGI is indeed magical. But watching this, I thought maybe we’ve seen too much magic. Maybe what we really need, even in summer action movies, isn’t to see magic, but to feel emotion.
A mostly fun movie, but also one not given the full emotional room to breathe that it has over the course of the trilogy earned.
It’s kinda lame. There’s slightly more to it than that, but basically, that’s what X-Men: The Last Stand boils down to.
It’s the first halfway decent summer movie so far.
Nothing really feels at stake other than box-office opening-weekend numbers
Audience Reviews for X-Men: The Last Stand
To be honest there are none of the X-men movies I like, except for Last Stand, especially since this is the one X-men film that everyone seems to hate which I don’t understand. I mean yes it does have a more action oriented director under the name of Brett Ratner (Tower heist, Red Dragon, Horrible Bosses,) But he did a good job at making this an extremely entertaining superhero film unlike the first two and the other films following. While the film does majorly prefer an action focus much more than a story focus and I know many X-men fans were pissed about that, I really didn’t mind that, and I feel for the grand finale on the main trilogy of films (even if it hints twice at a sequel that never happened.) I like the inclusion of some of the other superheroes like Colossus, Archangel, and Jubilee (Even if they aren’t really used to their full potential) and the inclusion of Juggernaut was just hilarious. And the film also did have some balls I think to kill off such a big characters such as Xavier *supposedly.* And while I don’t remember much of the plot outside of the protection of a boy and a gene that can turn mutants into normal humans and the good guys are using it to fight the bad guys and Jean Grey comes back from the dead somehow, I don’t really get a lot of it that much but all I really cared about in the end was how the film was all going to end and I think it came out with a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy, especially with the fantastic mutant battle. Again, while it is definitely stupid, I’d say give it a try and give it a chance unlike every X-men fanboy that bashes it.
In my review of Return of the Jedi, I spoke about the baggage that comes with threequels and their tendency to be the runts of their respective litters. Often the drop in quality – whether perceived or actual – stems from a lack of new ideas, or an abandonment of the principles and/ or personnel which made the series so successful. That being said, the same person being in charge is not in itself a guarantee of quality, as Spider-Man 3 and Evil Dead 3 firmly demonstrate. X-Men: The Last Stand has accrued a similar reputation in comic book circles in the 11 years since its release. Whenever this offering is mentioned, fans of the first two films tend to either start foaming at the mouth, disgusted by some deep betrayal, or sigh dejectedly and make some resigned comment about Hollywood. One could be forgiven, as a casual fan of X-Men, for assuming that this is the 2000s’ equivalent of Batman and Robin. Rest assured, it’s isn’t – but it is very much the Batman Forever of the series, representing a huge climbdown from the heft and skill of old. A lot has been made about Bryan Singer’s sudden departure from the series, with debate raging over how much of the resulting disappointment is his fault. Singer left the project in July 2004 to helm Superman Returns, at a time when only a partial treatment of the story existed. Singer had intended to focus the third film around Jean Grey’s arc leading on from X2, culminating in Jean committing suicide but her spirit surviving as something akin to the Star Child from 2001: A Space Odyssey. When Singer jumped ship, he took with him X2 screenwriters Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty, leaving 20th Century Fox with little to work with. Over the ensurng six months, the project was offered to numerous directors who turned it down, including Joss Whedon (who was busy on his Wonder Woman project) and Alex Proyas, who refused on account of the bad experience he had endured on I, Robot. Matthew Vaughn, who had then just finished Layer Cake, signed on to direct in February 2005, but even with the release date being pushed back Vaughn felt he did not have the time he needed to make the film he wanted. Having had some say in the casting – including Kelsey Grammer and Vinnie Jones – he backed out before filming was set to begin in July, paving the way for Brett Ratner to come in. Whether or not you think that Singer was right to jump ship (Superman Returns being the indecisive stodge that it is), much of his influence remains in at least the first hour of this film, just as Tim Burton held some sway over Batman Forever. His fingerprints are all over the Jean Grey storyline, fleshing out the character and turning her into something truly dangerous. Her arc is very reminsicent of Amy Irving’s character in The Fury (itself heavily X-Men-inflected), being as she is a young woman struggling to channel and contain enormously destructive powers that to a large extent she doesn’t want. There’s even a sequence where Jean disintegrates people with her power – although it’s not as bloody as The Fury’s 18-rated version. If all the good parts of X-Men: The Last Stand lie in whatever Singer managed to contribute before departing, all of the blame for the bad aspects can be laid firmly at Ratner’s feet. The main problem lies in his sensibility – or, to be more precise, the complete lack of it. While Singer worked hard to build a compelling visual world to explore complex themes about racism, identity and alienation, all Ratner really wants to do to make knob gags and blow stuff up. Despite having been in the running to helm the first X-Men film, he displays no deep knowledge or love for the mythology, being too obsessed with spectacle and cheap humour to put in the hard yards which this kind of story needs. As a result of both Singer’s influence and Ratner’s laziness, the film ends up being deeply conflicted. The first hour has some of the substance of old, especially in the opening flashback and some of scenes involving discussions of the cure. But Ratner doesn’t delve as deep as Singer did, introducing the concept and then leaving it as a mere McGuffin. The dialogue is more aggressively macho than before, and talky scenes are more readily broken up with needless editing. And then there is the needlessly yandere-ish love scene between Jean and Logan, which feels like someone copy-pasted the sauna scene from Goldeneye into their fan fiction. Building up their relationship is necessary for the pay-off, but this isn’t an erotic thriller – you don’t have to approach every conversation like it’s a prelude to 12A rumpy-pumpy. As things roll on towards the inevitably explosive conclusion, many of the interesting character arcs which are either introduced or carried over from X2 are left unfinished. Grammar is a half-decent fit for Beast but is wasted in the role, and Rogue gets an especially tough break; while in X-Men she was arguably the central character, here all she does is go off, get the cure and then come back. While in the previous two films the action felt like an interlude to or progression from the character development, here everything serves the need for everything to blow up at the end. If X2 was said to have been modeled after Road to Perdition, then X-Men: The Last Stand’s main point of comparison would be with Die Another Day. Aside from possessing a general contempt for the audience’s intelligence, and a number of similar scenes (the training simulations, the X-Jet’s ‘stealth mode’ standing in for the invisible car), they also feature really dodgy CGI in the places that it’s least needed. It’s not so bad when Logan is having his flesh ripped apart when Jean is in Dark Phoenix mode, but the sequence with the bridge is every bit as ropey as Pierce Brosnan windsurfing over the CGI wave. Building up to the big battle at the end would be fine if it actually had scale, context and above all meaning. But while Peter Jackson pulled it off spectacularly in both The Two Towers and The Return of the King, Ratner’s battle is as aimless as a video game raid. Where Jackson‘s battles went through given motions, ebbing and flowing to build character and generate tension, the final act of this film is uninvolving, bland and often ridiculous. Vinnie Jones make the whole thing feel like a cut scene from Gone in 60 Seconds, and the actual ending involving Magneto at the chess board is both unashamed sequel bait and a huge anticlimax. In spite of all its poor qualities, the cast of X-Men: The Last Stand do just enough to make the experience tolerable. Famke Janssen is the stand-out, having a commanding screen presence which manages to pierce through the effects and hold our attention; in the scene in the woods, she even upstages Sir Ian McKellen. McKellen and Patrick Stewart are both fine, though both have settled into ‘established actor cameo’ mode by the end, and Hugh Jackman continues to make his case for being the definitive Wolverine. Had Days of Future Past never happened, this would have been a bittersweet farewell for the cast, but you can’t blame any of them for not trying in spite of the poor script. X-Men: The Last Stand is a disappointment denouement to the original X-Men trilogy. While it makes for watchable viewing during the Jean Grey sequences, there’s ultimately too little meat on the bones and too few thoughts between its ears to either satisfy committed fans or compete with its two predecessors. It id the worst of the original X-Men films, but had Brett Ratner been involved from the very beginning, it could have been even worse.
While The Last Stand is a step down from X-2 thanks to a switch to the more action-oriented direction of Brett Ratner, it is nonetheless a highly entertaining installment in the franchise. Excellent set pieces and special effects are the highlights, while the plot is a little messy and underdeveloped. Regardless of its shortcomings, I enjoyed my time with The Last Stand and the new characters are fun to watch.
The first X-Men gave us promise. X2 made us proud to be comic book fans. X3 makes us want to cower down and cry. It’s crap from the opening shot right to its cliffhanger ending, which is quite ironic since the film is titled “The Last Stand.” There’s no excuse for such sloppy, mismanaged execution especially when the budget is a whopping $210 million. It’s really tough for me to explain how bad this film is because I could pretty much pick apart every scene and explain what is wrong with it. Too many characters, poorly written dialogue, clumsily staged and edited fight scenes, and awful CGI are just some of the many problems with X-Men: The Last Stand. I swear I have seen better use of green screen in student films. I hated X3. It’s a slap in the face to fans of the source material and a complete nose dive off the cliff in comparison to the previous films in the series. Not since The Godfather Part III has the concluding act in a well-received trilogy been so monumentally awful.
Gay Men: 10 Types of Guys You Never Want to Date!
John Hollywood writes about pop culture topics with a psychological twist. Most articles are practical in nature with a “How To” approach.
10 Types of Gay Men to Avoid
Gay dating has always been sort of tricky. First, thereвЂ™s the issue of figuring out if thereвЂ™s a mutual attraction.
Second, there is the entire matter of compatibility in the bedroom. Here we are talking about who prefers to do what and if that person is any good at it. LetвЂ™s be real вЂ“ thatвЂ™s an important thing to a lot of gay men!
Third, both guys need to figure out if the interest level goes beyond a mere hookup. In other words:
вЂњIs there a real desire to build something meaningful here?вЂќ
Once you move past the three big pre-dating hurdles, you slip into the world of observational dating.
This is where things become really interesting because during this phase, you have the opportunity to test the mettle of the man and see it the guy is a good fit. Is he emotionally available for example?
Observational dating involves checking out the dudeвЂ™s behaviors during time spent together and assessing what the heck you are dealing with. Usually during the observation phase, no relational commitment is made. Instead, things are kept casual, which allows either party the freedom to call it quits should they so desire.
But what exactly are the gay dating warning signs?
10 Types of Gay Men You Never Want to Date
What follows are 10 types of guys gay men never want to date, based on different personality characteristics. These вЂњ10 typesвЂќ were created through observations and commentary collected in an unscientific web survey, plus the input of a few experts in the field of gay couples counseling.
Disclaimer: This list is not exhaustive and may or may not apply to your situation. Think of these as general characteristics rather than hard and fast rules. Additionally, for every negative characteristic listed here there are positive traits you should consider. The point however of this article is help you figure out the ones you absolutely donвЂ™t want to deal with.
To help visually illustrate the 10 types, weвЂ™ve included an infographic.
Are you ready вЂ“ letвЂ™s jump right in!
1. The Cheapskate
Cheapskates usually rear their penny pinching heads early in the dating process. Typically, this type of gay man will make no effort to reach for their wallet and almost expects that you pay for outings, like dinners and movies.
When they are placed in a situation where they must pay for something, they often nickel and dime it to the point that it takes all joy out of whatever is planned.
The difference between a cheapskate and someone who is frugal is that cheapskates opt for вЂњcheapвЂќ or вЂњfreeвЂќ over quality, despite having the resources to pay.
Common cheapskate remarks & behaviors include:
- вЂњThatвЂ™s just too expensiveвЂќ
- вЂњI forgot my walletвЂќ
- вЂњI donвЂ™t have enough money on meвЂќ
- Avoiding group outings because they cost money
2. Prima Donna
Prima Donnas are perhaps one of the biggest personality types you want to avoid as a gay man.
These particular individuals are overly fussy, narcissistic and self-important.
Usually, they make it to the observational dating stage by using charm, coupled with good looks, which are used to pull an unsuspecting gay man into their world of вЂњfansвЂќ.
This type of gay man makes it all about them and simply must be the center of attention wherever they go.
Likely, they will not ask about whatвЂ™s going on with you, your life or your family.
Common Narcissistic Pre-Madonna behaviors include:
- Creating spectacles that brings the focus of attention to them
- Being super picky about clothing and grooming products
- Wearing clothing designed to garner attention from others
- Thrive on receiving the attention of others
- Holds little regard for your feelings, wants, desires or needs.
- Unable to emphasize or sympathize
- Feels you and the world owe them something
- Uses the words “Me” and “I” frequently
3. The Player
Players can be difficult to spot at first because like the narcissistic pre-madonna, they use charm and good looks to suck in their prey. Players give the vibe of being casual and easy going, which can be powerfully magnetic, given how many gay men are attracted to this type of energy.
Players however can be spotted fairly quickly by closely examining their words and through observing their interactions with others.
Common player characteristics and behaviors:
- Constantly flirty with strangers
- Facebook photos almost always show them at nightclubs
- Secretive about their whereabouts and slippery with details
- They seem to have a lot of вЂњexвЂќ boyfriends
- Multiple profiles on various gay hookup apps.
4. The Party Dude/Drunk
This is another type of guy you want to avoid for serious dating. In the gay world, use of alcohol and certain types of party favors is not uncommon. And it is important to state that just because someone uses alcohol or вЂњpartiesвЂќ from time to time doesnвЂ™t make them un-datable. However, when you have situation where the guy needs to constantly liquor up or use something else in order to have fun or enjoy intimacy, you are likely dealing with the party dude/drunk.
Common party dude/drunk behaviors:
- CanвЂ™t go on a date anywhere unless alcohol is somehow involved
- Requires the use of a substance in order to become intimate
- Gets upset if you offer resistance to using alcohol or other substances
- CanвЂ™t emotionally вЂњconnectвЂќ unless alcohol or substances are involved
- Displays irresponsible behaviors as a result of substance abuse
5. The Dating Junky
Dating junkies are gay men who get all caught up in the вЂњnewnessвЂќ of dating you but as soon as things start to get serious, they drop you like a hot potato.
Dating junkies thrive on perpetually being in a state of going out on new dates or meeting new people. They never hang around long enough to see if something long-term can develop because they think вЂњsomething betterвЂќ might be out there.
Dating junky common behaviors:
- Pull away after several dates claiming вЂњWeвЂ™re moving too fastвЂќ.
- Has little or no long-term relationship history with others.
- Comes in hot and heavy and вЂњfade awayвЂќ for no apparent reason.
- Will often claim, вЂњI never seem to meet the right guyвЂќ.
Dating Types to Avoid
Which Type do You Dislike Most?
6. The Drama Queen
In the gay world of dating, drama queens are not that difficult to spot. In fact, they are super simple to detect because of their overt nature. Drama queens are addicted to chaos, confusion and indecision. They are quick to overreact, take things way too personally and make everything a crisis.
When they are not making mountains out of molehills, they are inserting themselves into other peopleвЂ™s chaos or worse, pulling you into their world of craziness. In many ways, drama queens are addicted to the non-stop emotional roller coaster of highs and lows and experiences few periods of stability. Enough said.
7. The Self-Loather
Self-loathing gay men are very difficult to date. They have a chip inside of them that for whatever reasons makes them think they need to deny who they are. Characteristically, self-loathers claim to not be like вЂњother gay menвЂќ and over emphasize masculinity to the point that it can be a turn off. Self-loathers avoid any hint of public displays of affection (PDA) and constantly need to distance themselves from anything that may be remotely seen as вЂњgayвЂќ.
Common self-loather behaviors:
- Have a need to say others constantly mistake them as вЂњstraightвЂќ
- Brags about having girlfriends in the past (i.e. high school)
- Refuse to be around other вЂњgayвЂќ people
- May use substances to avoid self-reflection about being gay.
8. The User
Users can initially be hard to spot. Part of the identification problem involves their unique ability to skate by in life, mostly getting by on combination of good looks and charm.
Other obstacles to user identification relate to their uncanny ability to make you feel like you are the center of their world, which obfuscates the reality of what is really going on вЂ“ they have targeted you because of your perceived financial stability.
Users do not like to work and often have low-paying, low level jobs (if they work at all). Users should not be confused with cheap-skates however because cheapskates at least have the financial resources to support themselves.
9. The Overachiever
This particular type of guy may at first glance seem like someone you want to date. Commonly, overachievers do fit the bill for a number of desirable traits, such as financial stability, assertiveness and intelligence. The problem with overachievers, however, is they usually are never around and when they are, they often obsess over their job or privately owned business.
Overachievers characteristically have the need to be the absolute best at everything they do. This need however comes at a cost in the personal relationship department. Of all of the typologies mentioned here, overachievers may be the best choice out of other вЂњbadвЂќ. If you are looking for a guy to settle down with and who is never around, the overachiever is your guy.
Warning вЂ“ this person will likely suffer from health problems as they age, including heart and gastrointestinal issues because of cumulative stress!
10. The Body Image Dude
The body image dude is perhaps one of the easiest to identify on this list of 10 Types of guys you never want to date. Body image dudes characteristically have problems with their personal appearance, obsessively spending hours in front of the mirror and fretting about how they вЂњlookвЂќ.
Many of these guys suffer from low self-esteem and compensate for this problem by over emphasizing the physical presence. This is usually accomplished by spending hours at the gym, using growth enhancing substances and generally making everyone around them miserable because of their special вЂњdietaryвЂќ needs.
Entering into a relationship with the body image dude is like stepping into a town called crazy. For example, the body image dude will refuse to engage in intimacy if the lights are on and may refuse to any type of physical closeness if they have to take their shirt off. Yep, these guys exist and there is a good chance you probably have encountered one or more of them before.
The 10 personality types offered here speak in generalities and certainly do not represent the entirety of gay men. To be fair, many of the characteristics presented in this article apply to straight men as well.
These general traits however are important to be mindful of. You donвЂ™t want to date a guy, at least in the long term sense, if they are one (or more) of the types that appear here.
And it is completely possible for a dude to occupy several of these вЂњtypesвЂќ all at once. Should you involved with someone like that, you really have problems.
So there you have it вЂ“ the 10 types of gay men you never want to date. Now go out and find your dream man!

Too bad we didn’t have this head’s up before we set out finding these human trainwrecks, in the first place.
Well I’m none of those the only problem I faced in the LGBT community is the fact that these guys don’t even want to give me a try because I’m black
John Hollywood, that was so true what you said about some of the gay men. Why I say this? I was with one for seven years until I told him to hit the road. Mine was the type of man that was gay as a 33 dollar bill, but had to be drunk first to admit it. When he was sober, his whole personality changed. It was like he was a totally different man. He would not say a word to anyone while sober to the point I thought and others thought he was socially retarded. When he started drinking, you could not shut him up. He became extremely passionate, actually the life of the party. Then the next day back to the other person that was so shy, that people often ask him if he was ill. So yes your right on and I had one and no thank you John Hollywood don’t want another one. Again thanks for the important information. Rex.
Been there, done that
looks like I’m undateable, I’m the complete mix between drunk and date junkie, with a little of overachiever and just a bit of pre- madonna. -_-
Just wanted to say that it’s a bit unfair telling people that they shouldn’t date guys who aren’t fully comfortable with how they look. Only because someone doesn’t want to take his shirt off because he fears he might be judged or simply doesn’t feel comfortable doesn’t mean he is a bad person who you shouldn’t date.
Buyer beware, I fit into a few of the categories above. so be it. You left out judgmental close minded guy who is quick the to label everyone and pretend that he is above it all. This is the guy will point out everyones imperfections and even write articles on the subject because according to them, there is nothing bad about themselves.
I found your article to be very informative. I finally understand who i have been dating. Thank you so much.

@mediicineman. Why don’t you write something yourself? Easy to criticize. It’s another thing to actually write. Now enjoy your day, ya hear? Buy bye!
Never dated, but using this to try and characterise myself to figure out where I stand in the whole gay image thing, I realise I don’t really fit into any of these. I don’t really know how to feel now. I’m responsible with money, but not a cheapskate. I don’t like attention at all cause I guess I have social anxiety. I need the emotional side satisfied before being attracted to a guy enough to want something significant. I don’t go out, at all. Occasionally with a mate once a month. I haven’t dated before. I hate drama as it is to much time and energy gone to waste. I accept my flaws and try to build upon them and change. I only keep people around me if they build me up, I don’t think that’s using, more that there’s no point in having or being around someone that your of no use to. Ive managed to achieve a degree and stuff and constantly aim to get better, but not to be the best. And I aim to lead a healthy lifestyle and try to stay in shape to an extent but not so much so that its my life. I’m also 21, Indian and and have been openly gay since I was 17.
Just wondering what does this mean then if I don’t fall into any of these categories? Or if I do, which one/ones do I fall into and how could I improve on myself? So confused.
Its well written and lengthy but kind of comes off as superficial. I mean those traits are obviously visible no-no’s which anyone can spot on in less than a day’s worth of interaction. I was probably looking for more depth i guess. Things everyone would easily miss out on. Like tell me something I don’t know.
So It must be really difficult to you to find a guy. Because you’re a mix of at least 3 of those types. You’re creating stereotypes, but you forgot you’re the first stereotype every gay men want to avoid: the self proclamed mister perfect, implying he’s a sort of leader but never saying it because it conveys a bad image. The type of guy who think he’s in rigth to decide who is to avoid, and wath everyone needs.
Your narrow minded vision of the world only belong to you, so don’t speak as if you’re telling us a bible.
No-one likes Georgina Georges.
The term is “prima donna”, not “pre-Madonna”. An Italian word for first lady; a diva, not an era of time before Madonna.
Interesting list, but my friend and I can’t stop laughing at number two. Surely you mean “prima donna” (a very old term that comes from opera), not a man who is in the early stages of transforming into the singer Madonna.
This is sad as most gay men fit into onevircseveral of these slots.
My question is where does a college student living on financial aid because of taking 16 + credit hours of classes fit into this category? people who live off of financial aid often have tight budgets and can’t afford to pay for a lot of the “dates” you claim that cheapskates don’t want to pay for. Is it so bad to do something free or something that is within a budget? While I do think that there is truth to a lot of these traits, there are a lot that attenuate from a persons unique situations.

I think you should add, “He has 2000 facebook friends who are all musclebears and look just like him, and no other type of friends.” Most likely-PLAYER!
It’s refreshing to see articles like this geared toward gay men. I have seen so many gay men hurt and even destroyed because of these type of guys. Most people (that includes MEN, GAY MEN) want to love and be loved. The issue now: finding that other man who wants to love and be love. and share the responsibility of love. Yes, to love is to be response able.

This list also goes for women and which men to avoid dating! You are right about the overachiever, he might be the only one worth dating on this list because of his stability. Yet, he might make you feel like a failure because he’s so competitive.
I ‘m thinking that number four might have problems with his identity and coming to terms with being gay, hence using alcohol all the time, even for intimacy.
Invaluable for a newbe! Often get confused about guys, especially when get butterflies with them. This page certainly makes sense who not to waste one’s energy on. Bless.

Sure, gobblegobble, no one’s perfect, but it’s not an excuse for users to use people, or for people to go on dates, but then drop their date when they get bored. One doesn’t have to have “some false sense of perfection” to look for someone who won’t USE them! NO ONE wants that.

Well gobble gobble! 🙂
Pure trash, all this article achieves is perpetuate an unobtainable ideal no one is that perfect. Everyone has a personality specific to them, all these articles do is pander to shallow people who go out searchong for some false sense of perfection, when they shoild probably take a better look at their own personaility first.
