The things that Men notice instantly from Women

It's no shocker that women are known for judging others, but did you ever think men might be guilty of it too? It's true...and you might be surprised to learn exactly what they're honing in on. Here are three things he notices the moment you meet.

Your Friends

You can work your butt off to come across well— a flattering, flirty outfit, big smile, witty conversation—but you can’t do the same for your friends. Men know this, so if you’re out with the gals, men look at them as representatives of all your personality traits—including the not-so-good ones. “I met a girl who seemed sweet at a bar. We chatted, and she invited me to hang with her friends,” says Stan, 26. “Within 10 minutes, I realized they were all gossipy drama queens, and I bolted.” If your friends aren’t on the same win-him-over page as you are, head to your own corner of the bar.

Your Laugh

Guys pride themselves on being funny, so they look for ladies who can appreciate their sense of humor. However, there’s such a thing as laughing too much. “I went out for drinks with one girl who cracked up at everything I said, even if it wasn’t funny,” says Adam, 27. “It got on my nerves so much that I made an excuse to leave early.”

Cell-Phone Usage

You’re having a great chat with a guy when you get a text. What you do next—ignore it or write a response before putting the phone on the table so it’s easier to get to next time—tells him how you’d treat him in the future. “I met a girl at a coffee shop, and within 15 minutes, her phone rang,” says Seth, 33. “She just let it go to voice mail, which made me feel like, at that moment, I was her first priority.”

North Carolina-Style Pulled Pork Sandwiches

The humble hamburger bun is essential for soaking up the vinegary sauce—it hugs the fillings like no other bread can.


  • 3 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • One 5-pound boneless pork shoulder roast
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 8 hamburger buns, split
  • 4 cups North Carolina-Style Coleslaw, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 300°. Mix together the salt, pepper and paprika; sprinkle all over the pork and rub in.

  2. In a large skillet or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a 24-inch-long sheet of heavy-duty foil and double-wrap the pork.

  3. Place the pork, skin side up, in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish; roast until tender, about 4-1/2 hours. Remove from the oven and carefully unwrap the top of the pork, revealing the skin. Increase the heat to 450° and roast for 20 minutes more.

  4. Transfer the roast to a large bowl, along with any juices. Using two forks, shred the pork. Add the vinegars, sugar and hot sauce; toss. Serve on the hamburger buns, topped with coleslaw, if using.

Mystery Hero Helps in Tot's River Rescue

(April 5) -- A California couple want to thank the mysterious man who jumped into the frigid East River to help rescue their 2-year-old daughter after she slipped on a gangplank while visiting a ship docked at New York's South Street Seaport.

But they can't find him because he left the scene in a cab moments after toddler Bridgette Sheriden was back on land.

In a video captured by witness Eric Stringer and shared with the New York Daily News, David Anderson is seen bobbing in the river and holding on to a rope as he clutches his daughter in the 48-degree water on Saturday.

"He went all the way under, and when he came up, he had her in his arms," Stringer, 34, a freelance TV producer from Hicksville, N.Y., told the Daily News. "She was motionless, at first. It was a couple of seconds, and then she started crying."

The mystery man leaped into the river along with Anderson. Stringer's video shows the man in the water next to Anderson as he holds his daughter. According to Stringer, the mystery man helped secure the father and daughter to the dock and keep them from drifting away. Paramedics called by witnesses arrived shortly after the three were pulled onto the dock, but the unidentified man reportedly hurried off in a taxi.

Anderson and Bridgette were taken to Bellevue Hospital and were released after treatment.

Bridgette's parents now want to thank the man.

"I'd like to offer him my congratulations and my best wishes, and I'd like to talk to him privately to convey the same message," the mother, who declined to reveal her name, told the New York Post.
