Top 5 MST3K Episodes for Your First Date

Mystery Science Theatre isn’t very popular in my hometown. But to me it’s one of the funniest shows ever, and I love sharing it with others. But introducing someone new to this show is tricky business. It’s not the kind of show everyone can sit through for very long before they start getting bored. As a nerdy guy who loves this show, I want my future partner to enjoy it with me. But I really want her to ‘get it’. So I sat thinking about which episodes I would consider as introductions to MST3K. These were my criteria: Episodes that are universally funny, even to non-fans Episodes where men were severely ridiculed Episodes with my kind of humor that I want to share Episodes with a few boring segments so I can steal a kiss or a cuddle The following five MST3K episodes are my prescription for a successful first [...]

Conquering Your Shyness – 9 Dating Tips for Introverted Guys

Reaching out to someone new is scary! More for some than others. For me, it’s a case of sweaty palms, increased heart rate and fumbling over my words. If you’re an introvert, you can relate. Introverts have a hard time dating because socializing doesn’t come naturally to us. We feel safe behind our phone screens. It’s the face-to-face interaction that’s difficult. Online dating has definitely taken a backseat in my life. There are many reasons why I am not doing it right now, and one of them is because I don’t want to hide anymore. I really want to step out of my comfort zone and meet someone organically. I’m tired of sharing my attention with more than one person. And I’m tired of having to share someone I like with other potential “candidates”. It’s nothing personal. Online dating just isn’t for me. Simple as that. A friend of mine [...]

3 Secrets to Loving People More Fully

  The thing about love is that it cannot be quantified. People can throw around biological “love hormone” terms like oxytocin and dopamine. They can say that love is a survival mechanism necessary for procreation. But in the end, love is too unpredictable to measure. You can’t explain why you love one person so hard, and feel nothing for another. You can’t explain the horrors of jealousy and fear in a relationship—and to what point that horror can escalate. You can’t explain why you simply CANNOT stop loving someone—even though you know you should. Which is probably why you read this blog. Because where science fails (and it does), solidarity takes its place. Yes, we may all experience love in different ways, but at least we can look at each other and empathize with each other over the confusion and volatility that is… LOVE.   A Lesson in Love I [...]
