This is a test … about women testing

by GK on November 3, 2010 · 4 comments

From the moment I got my first pop quiz in elementary school, I hated tests. Still do, in fact. I even hate those emergency-broadcast tests that spring up on TV every now and then. So when I first started trying to figure women out in my mid-20s, I wasn’t happy to learn that I was […]

As I mentioned in my last post, I do wish I’d gotten around to coaching women on flirting. But it’s nice to know that a girl I met a few nights ago didn’t need the help. Perhaps this story will give you an example of what I’d teach a woman: how to clear the path and make […]

Was it something I said, Don? Days after my online intervention for Don Draper, who was fast losing his Grade A game with the ladies, he showed us some signs of life in the latest episode of “Mad Men.”  It’s far too soon to say he’s all the way back, but we finally saw our first Vintage Don in Season 4.

Don Draper: Ladies’ Man in Crisis

by GK on August 17, 2010 · 7 comments

I’m about to do something I never thought I’d have to do: give Don Draper advice on women.

by GK on June 1, 2010 · 6 comments

Last month, I watched a tour documentary on the White Stripes called “Under Great White Northern Lights.” What stood out to me, other than some blistering live sets and the weird chemistry between Jack and Meg White, is the part where Jack elaborates on the band’s philosophy on imperfection, and on “constriction to force ourselves to create.” I thought it tied in […]

Around the same time I read about the whiny San Francisco women represented in that SF Weekly article (and the whiny SF men and women on its comments page), I found a corresponding blog that’s gained some local popularity. The name says it all: Why There Are No Girls in San Francisco.  Whoever this Samuel Snodgrass is, […]

This is a topic I’ve been wanting to cover for months. For all of San Francisco’s sophistication — its cuisine, wine and culture — we seem to be resorting to some childish temper tantrums when it comes to one thing: hooking up. Or, rather, not hooking up. Both sexes are guilty of this, and I’ll […]

Baseball season is back, so it makes sense that I’m going to the bullpen on this post. I want to get some different perspectives for you folks, and the one guest blogger I had to have was Dirk Manley. He’s making his GK Shares Game debut today. I’ve been a fan of Dirk for years on the Charisma […]
