  • Say Goodbye to March Madness
    April 5, 2016
    By Tammy Shaklee, Founder, He’s For Me Houston men, if you have ever lived in West Texas (or Northwest Oklahoma), you know that spring is really known for one irritating and unavoidable thing. Wind. Spring unleashes direct pole bending wind over the un-interrupted plains. And the damage is more than the meteorologist’s “skirt alert”.

    By Tammy Shaklee, Founder, He's For Me As I sit to write this, I feel like an investigative reporter.

I sometimes question whether it’s become the great American pastime. Safe, passive, voyeuristic, and a daily dopamine rush, that keeps you feeling...
  • The Man You Date. Wait, I Mean Marry
    January 27, 2016
    By Tammy Shaklee, Founder of He's For Me Yes, gentlemen. There is often a difference. An important distinction. Not everything in life is black and white. In most things, there is some grey area. And I guess that could apply here too. But after interviewing eligible gay men for more than three years, I can tell you, there’s some wildly consistent beliefs and behaviors I feel important to point out to you. Online, anyone can “talk” to anyone, if you choose. If you never...

    November 24, 2015
    By Jenn Haight We no longer speak of the world as having two binary genders, male and female. Now individuals are finding ways both more full and succinct to define the nuances of their being.
