Female Population: Please Let Us Hit On You At Starbucks And The Gym.

Female Population: Please Let Us Hit On You At Starbucks And The Gym.

The Geneva Convention, The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the 10 Ten Commandments, the list goes on. All are extremely important documents that have shaped this great nation we call home. USA! USA! USA! I propose a new document. I present to you "The Male/Female Coffee + Gym Agreement." Or, the TMFCGA. Side note: 'hitting on you' has such a negative connotation. I'm not Floyd Mayweather (too soon?). I think it implies a sweaty dude walking up and saying incredibly stupid shit. For the sake of making my argument, let's just call it starting a conversation you didn't think you would have that day. Proceed. I'm sure you can guess what the agreement states for the most part. I'll provide the hard hitting facts of what led me to this groundbreaking document. I'm 28, single, and in that weird phase where some of my friends are getting married and having kids, some are still blacking out 2-3x a week, and some are floating around the ocean shooting lip...

Mrs. Right or Mrs. Tonight…

Mrs. Right or Mrs. Tonight…

Editors Note: Often times friends or random's say something along of the lines of "I'd love to write stuff for NoPantsToWork." I usually say, "great, send it on over." Rarely do people actually follow through. This was written by a friend who I would classify as a very level headed, normal nice guy. Enjoy! I am a guy who has dated my fair share of women, but at this point in my late twenties, I am absolutely ready to settle down when the right girl comes along. Most weekends, I go out to bars and clubs in search of Mrs. Right, optimistic that I will find the girl who has everything I look for. I will often find my “girl du jour”, feel things out for a month or three, and then inevitably determine that she is not “marriage material”. While I admit that I am extremely picky, I also believe it is within my rights. After all, I am looking for the woman with whom...

Live Life to the Fullest…but like, for real.

Live Life to the Fullest…but like, for real.

Who doesn't love a good cliche? Live life to the fullest. We hear it plenty. I usually think something along the lines of "yea yea yea, ok I get it." Well, a few weeks ago I took a trip down to Ft. Lauderdale to visit my 2 grandmothers. It was shocking, depressing, wonderful, and a pretty big eye opener. One Grandmother, Grandma Cynnie (Cynthia) is 87, all there mentally, but has steadily deteriorated physically since I last saw her. She walks with a cane, and one of her medications gives her difficulty breathing. Upon seeing me (mind you, for the first time in a while), she hysterically cried, which in turn caused me to cry hysterically get lots of dust in my eye. It's upsetting to see someone completely "with it" mentally, but trapped and confined by their body slowly breaking down on them. *Editors note: Cynnie hadn't seen me since I lost about 35lbs of weight and about 10% body fat....

Timing is Errrrrrrrrthang

Timing is Errrrrrrrrthang

If there is one central thesis or thought I have learned the last 18-months or so it is this. Whether we're talking about life, love, work, sports, whatever... TIMING IS EVERYTHING. I came across this article by Mark Manson about a year ago and although saying it changed my life might be a stretch...it's pretty close. Certainly changed my perspective on stuff. It helps solve the grey areas of life, love, work, etc. Now, while I agree with about 99% of Mark's article, we're all human, grey exists. Whether you choose to remove yourself from the grey area is up to you..but, regardless, it exists. What I've come to find is that the grey area exists in large part due to timing. In regards to love: Dating is tough. The idea of combining your life with someone else and making it work seems virtually impossible sometimes. Think about the timing it takes for that to work. First off, you both have to be...
