Oscar Wilde, playwright, poet, novelist, and one of the wittiest conversationalists ever to exist, had many opinions regarding women. (No need to go into why).
Here are some gems:
Men marry because they are tired; women, because they are curious; both are disappointed. (So keep up your energy levels with proper diet and exercise).
A man can be happy with any woman, as long as he does not love her. (So don’t fall in love. Sometimes you can’t help it, and when you can’t help it, get help from the thought that no matter how great you think she is, some other guy out there who started loving her, was completely tired of her bullshit).
Woman begins by resisting a man’s advances and ends by blocking his retreat. (Any bachelor with any experience knows it is much easier to get into a relationship than get out of one where she wants to keep you, and you realize she is not only not the one, she isn’t even half of it).
The only way to behave to a woman is to make love to her, if she is pretty, and to someone else, if she is plain. (Words to live by).

Any bachelor worth his cocktail shaker knows about Hugh Hefner, the publisher of Playboy, a magazine that is at the time of this posting sixty four years old. (Fortunately the women pictured therein are a tad younger). Hef started it when he was about twenty eight, and to update this post, he called it a day at 91 recently. Heaven for Hef would be a downgrade.
But man, what an inspiration was Hef to the bachelors of the world, especially the VIP bachelor. Besides the pictures of pulchritude, there were articles dealing with the major concerns of the bachelor: drinks, dress, food, stereo, cars, music, and more.
There were stories by famous authors, and advertisements that exemplified the swinging bachelor lifestyle of the fifties and sixties.
