What is the best thing you can do as a guy to impress a woman? -Spencer Emily's Take: If there was a magic answer to this question, it would be – be yourself! There's no magic formula that I can give you to guarantee that a random woman will be impressed by you. We're all different so while one woman may find your jokes funny, the next will find them annoying. It depends on our moods too; one day I'm in a mood to laugh and the next I'd rather have an intellectual conversation. Some are impressed by your musical talents, intellect or sense of humor and then you have woman that are most impressed by your bank account balance or the... Read More
Hey... so I'm a twenty-one year old art student and basically I'm trying to break into mainstream America and it's snazzy dating scene. Unfortunately, I've got a few issues that I'd like your insight on. I'm not a bro - I don't watch sports. Also, my city has a very angry "bro scene" and I'm too in love with life to walk around with a flat-billed hat and look angry all the time. I can't pop my collar or wear funny looking clothes. Should I just get a suit? Not a black one but a tan one like all the Irish guys wear in Goodfellas? I have no idea what to talk about. All I do is read, go fishing, and work on my stuff. What am I going to... Read More
There are a lot of falsehoods floating around the internet, and I feel like I should write this to clear up some misconceptions and outright lies about my favorite website (besides this one, of course!); Craigslist. You've probably heard of it. I myself kind of thought it was a joke at first, or something to fear. It can, in fact, be a very valuable resource for multiple outlets. Plus, if this article inspires you to begin using Craigslist I'll probably be better off personally, because it relies on involvement from the site's users. So read on, and get posting on Craigslist. There's a world of used... Read More
If there was something that a guy could "Ask A Woman" to make her want to go on a date without fail, what would that something be? Tony Emily's Take: There's no magic question that will work on all ladies. We're all different and have different things that we're interested in. For me, I think it is important that a guy I'm chatting up is interested about me and doesn't make me carry the conversation myself. I think you should ask questions about the woman's job, family, hometown, etc. Find things that you have in common and chat that up. Make her feel like you're interested in her on a deeper level than just her physical appearance and chances... Read More
I recently spent some time in Boston this summer, and while I was there, I helped a friend out with a video she made for her company, MapAround. MapAround is a search engine that helps Boston locals find the events and other activities that matter to them most. For the video shoot, we took to the streets of Boston to interview locals and tourists about their fondest and weirdest memories of the city, and I make a cameo in it, as well. If you’re from Boston or planning to travel there in the future, check out this video. I think you’ll enjoy it.
I'm going to start off this column by saying something that needs to be said: all you can eat buffets are not filled with amazing food. They have old food sitting under warmers, the meat tends to be the fatty leftovers that didn't make a McDonald's McNugget, and that being said, we as guys tend to love them. But why? As the editor for Bro Council I took on the burden of figuring this out. So I decided over the course of two days to eat lunch at a Golden Corral restaurant and a local Chinese buffet. The name of the Chinese place isn't important; try Googling the name of any Chinese restaurant you can think of and you'll find 700 others... Read More
Dear BC, I'm dating a girl, we're in love, and we have both stated that we want to be married and that we have never felt a love like this in our lives. We have talked extensively about marriage, our futures, and how strong our love is for each other. Now, we were moving forward with engagement (ring purchasing, talking to parents) and out of the blue, she told me that she has feelings for her ex-boyfriend and she doesn't know what that means. She said it may be nothing, but she misses him and doesn't know if that means she cares for him or just that she misses something comfortable. She said she wants to talk with him, and I don't like that... Read More
