Today I have the latest in the long-running, multi-contributor series called “Mars vs. Venus.” In these posts we explore a topic (usually relationships) from the male angle (mine) and the female angle (in this case, Katy’s). We do not read each other’s posts in advance, so I’m just as curious as you are to read […]

The example he referenced was that a […]


What Do Women Assume About Men?

Part I of this post can be found here. After each question, you’ll see what Lauren thought my answer would be in pink (because she’s a girl and girls have to like pink by federal law), and my actual answer in blue. 1. Assuming no mapping technology (internet, GPS, etc.), what do you do when you […]

Mars vs. Venus: When Worlds Collide

More than ever before, in 2009 I’ve been contemplating ways to bridge the gap between the digital world and the real world. For example, consider the rise of e-books. I’m a Kindle and an iPhone owner–I enjoy carrying around hundreds of books in the palm of my hand. But you can’t smell the fresh pages […]


What Men Want…Rather, What I Want

Update (12/15): Lauren over at My Life, Incomplete, has posted her response to this entry for our Mars vs. Venus series.
