Ask a Dude: Can I Tell Him That I Want to be More?

Hey Dude, So I am a student at Arizona State; that right there says it all. They should put somewhere before going to ASU "Don't fall in love at this school." Anyways, a little over a month ago I made the mistake of falling for a boy. We flirted over Facebook, his roommate dates my best friend at school, and he invited me out with him and his guy friends one night....

Ask a Dude: How Do I Befriend My Ex?

Hey Dude, So here's the thing: I want to be friends with my ex-boyfriend. I might be naive, and maybe it won't work out, but I still want to do it. We dated for a really long time in high school (all four years), then went our separate ways for college. Then in college we did the whole hooking up thing for a bit, and now he has a new girlfriend and we are home for the summer...

Ask a Dude: Does He Even Know What He Wants?

Dear Dude, I'm having some trouble figuring out what the guy I'm dating wants. We've been dating for a month now; he plays in my band and we met in February. He started flirting with me, chatting all the time and texting, until we finally kissed a month ago and we started dating. The problem is that he never had a serious relationship before, so he has no clue!

Ask a Dude: I Just Want to Lose My Virginity Already!

Hi Dude, I'm finishing up my sophomore year in college and I'm STILL a virgin. I'm not the prettiest pumpkin in the patch, but I'm not unattractive either. I'm confident and kind, and I'm not at all clingy. To be honest, I haven't had very many (zero) serious relationships. But also, I don't want my first time to be a fairytale... A wham-bam-thankya-ma'am would be fine. Just, ANYTHING.

Dude’s List: Top 16 Things You Do That Drive Him Crazy

Welcome to a SUPERSIZED Dude’s List this week where we take a look at guys’ pet peeves with you gals. We’re not perfect and would never claim to be. For one, we’d get in trouble for thinking such an impossibility or those of us who would think we’re perfect assume it goes without being said (screw you, Bieber!) Regardless, here’s a smattering of the little things you do that we sometimes make bigger in our heads, and sometimes make us long for alcohol.

Ask a Dude: Can I Tell My Boyfriend to Hook Up with Other People?

Hi Dude! Well here's the deal: my boyfriend and I have been dating for a year or so. Now we're graduating from high school and (finally!) going to college and he is going to study abroad. Since he was a virgin when we first met (yes, I popped his cherry) I think this could be a really great chance for him to have new experiences... sexy ones.

Ask a Dude: Does He Notice My Imperfections?

Dear Dude, I have recently found a new guy that I really like and now things are getting exciting in the bedroom department. However, I am very self conscious about my body and I always tend to stop things before they go any further. I would just like to know that if guys pay attention to those things. Like, does he notice my cellulite? The extra weight on my thighs? I know this seems like a ridiculous question, but it’s sorta paralyzing me and I don’t know what to do.

Ask a Dude: Can You Go from Friends with Benefits to Just Friends?

I love my boys, I really do, but I really am looking for a man who is willing to commit to me. I don't really want a romantic relationship with any of them, I want to find someone new, outside of our group of friends who I connect with. But how can I do that while they still want to be my friend with benefits?

Ask a Dude: How Do I Do the 'Casual Dating' Thing?

Hi Dude - I'm 21 years old and a junior in college. I've had a few boyfriends, but none lasting any more than 9 months, so I've spent quite a bit of time being single in the last 3-4 years. On the flip side, I've never just casually dated someone, it's always turned into a relationship.

Ask a Dude: Why's He Being So Flakey?

Dear Dude, So, I met this guy at a bar a few weeks ago. He is a little bit older (27 and I'm 22). He made some small talk with me and my friend, we left, I didn't give him another thought. Then, a week or so later we run into him again. He asks if we remember him, we say we do but can't remember his name. The thing is, he remembers my name and a few small comments that I had made to him, and ends up buying me a drink and asking for my phone number before leaving.

Ask a Dude: What's With the Cryptic Texts?

Dear Dude, Get ready for a toughy—the way this guy has demonstrated interest in me is far beyond my comprehension. He started flirting with me in October: sitting next to me in class, texting me nonstop, asking if I had a boyfriend, etc. I was very receptive and flirtatious back, but nothing happened. Physically speaking, the most we ever did was hug one another. But sometimes when he texts me, they’re very direct and sexual.

Ask a Dude: Am I a Trophy Girlfriend?

Dude, I am dating this guy who everyone else thinks is this amazing guy. And I guess from what they see, he is pretty amazing. He is constantly telling me how beautiful I am, how wonderful I am, and how lucky he is. Now, that's all great and sh*t, but after hearing it 24/7, I stop believing him. Is something wrong with me? I guess I should tell you a bit more…

Ask A Dude: How Do I Handle a Shy Guy?

Hi Dude, I just wanted to know what your thoughts are on the whole 'He's Just Not That Into You' phenomenon. I should start by saying that I've read the book, and a lot of what it says makes sense in theory... But, here's the thing: There is this guy at work that I've only bumped into like 3 or 4 times, but he's really cute and we seem to have fun talking to each other.
