Overnight Scouting

I’ll keep this short and sweet, but I saw this image on a life hacking article and felt that it could be helpful for a slightly less presumptuous night at your new lady’s place. If you’re not at the “leave a bunch of shit there” stage, this may be for you. Also she will be...

I try not to plug too many brands on DTGYL, unless they have something very specifically related to us or there can be a lesson or story (to get you laid). In the case of Knowlita, the lesson is this: Always represent things and places you love, and you will attract people with the same interests....

Old School | Part 1

Last year I found “A Handbook for College Men” at my Grandparents house entitled “The Technique of Good Manners” by Mary Perin Barker. Copyright 1935. As quoted from this, the fifteenth printing, December 1948: The lessons are simple and still important almost 80 years later. This book is like DTGYL from the 1930’s.  A man can and should...

Book | Paddle your own canoe

You may know Nick Offerman as Ron Swanson, the ultimate mustache wearing, Lagavulin drinking, manly-man on Parks & Recreation. Apparently, that’s not much of a character, its his actual being. His new book Paddle Your own Canoe just may inspire you to pursue a manlier life. “But you don’t have to take my word for it!”...

The power of a basic T-shirt

Let me tell you a quick story: There is nothing sexier to me than my boyfriend in a black v-neck t-shirt. (He will not like this public call out, at all. Sorry, I’m not sorry). I’m not bragging, but obviously I’m attracted to him, he is my boyfriend after all. Surprisingly, I met him at...

Porn vs. actual sex

FastCo.Design is consistently awesome with their infographics, however, they are not usually relevant to sex, dating or DTGYL. Today’s Porn vs. Actual Sex (infographic) video was pure genius, so I had to share it! Note: It’s safe to watch at work, on mute or with headphones, otherwise, probably awkward. (You’ll be surprised how awkward a banana...

Impressive mornings

If you’re into a girl, you shouldn’t just kick her out in the morning (or the night before, obviously). Consider the idea that maybe you weren’t very impressive the night before.

wet on the floor

Something you may not think about often, but use everyday, is your bathmat. If you don’t already have one, you should. It makes for a much more pleasant shower experience to step out onto something warm and dry instead of cold tile. I only recommend that you use the type of mat that you can...

That time that ‘long and thin’ beat out ‘wide and big’

What?! When?! TIES,  of course. Skinny ties always look better than more traditional wide ties. Don’t believe me? Here’s a bunch of great advice from GQ (Page 4 backs me up on the skinny ties!). Also, the Google results make it pretty clear: See, Google “Skinny ties” and models/ celebrities/ attractive men come up: Google “wide ties” and...

The quickest way to ruin an outfit, and your chances…

Recently, I asked some girlfriends “What have you seen on a guy that really ruined it for you?“. One response was “FLIP FLOPS“. I agree, here’s why: Flip flops are unacceptable because they look gross on your feet. They’re also reminiscent of Ninja Turtle feet. Which, while it is a fun nostalgic reference, no one...
