sure feels this way...
So, picture this: you're with your best guy, and you take out your laptop/ipad/kindle/whatever and which is the first site you check? NO, facebook is so five minutes ago. Pinterest, of course. As your manfriend sees this, he inmediately proceeds to roll his eyes, cross his arms and reach for the remote control. He knows he is now (or at least for the next 15 minutes) as good as invisible. If there are memes out there about this, I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in this scenario.
Why is it that women LOVE Pinterest while men just don't get it or hate it? I'm not even going to try to solve this riddle of the sphinx, I'll just settle with the thought that it's probably one of those "men are from mars, women are from venus things", who cares, let science (or at least someone else) solve this conundrum. I WILL though, give you a tip next time your brother/dad/significant other/random dude complains about Pinterest. Kindly direct them to either one of these two websites: Cracked and The Chive. They're both hilarious in their own way, and a great find for us girls too.

This one's an oldie but goodie. Cracked is an online humor "magazine", that's been around for as long as I can remember. If your guy likes random funny stuff, pop culture and zombies, THIS is the site for him. It's nothing at all like Pinterest, because its focal points are both articles and photos, but even if your guy is a lazy reader, he'll love this. I like that it has new content every day and a ton of trivia stories.

I sent my boyfriend a pinterest invite over a year ago. He has never pinned a single thing.
I was introduced to this site by my boyfriend about three months ago, and it's GREAT. It features a ton of slide shows on a lot of topics like humor, food, technology, movies and a huge favorite: hot girls. You might roll your eyes every time you see your guy oggling a girl online (guilty), but stop kidding yourself and just face it that men love looking at hot women in teeny bikinis. Don't worry though, it's not like it's Playboy, and for every picture of a boob you find on this site, you will find about four others of mouth-watering sandwiches, people falling down, funny animals and even badass babies.
