Don Frye exploded onto the UFC scene way back at event number 8. With legendary battles with Mark Coleman and Ken Shamrock, Don is a man’s man (and happens to look like a roided up Tom Selleck). Don Frye is also a great giver of advice…as found below.

Since I’m only a half man now (see previous posts), I thought I share with you some real ‘manly’ wisdom…from Don Frye.

Dear Don

I’ve been really good friends with this woman for a little over a year. A few months ago I figured out that I really liked her, more than just wanting to get into her pants. How can I tell her how I feel and get my point across without looking and sounding like just another jackass?

So you like her but aren’t man enough to tell her? I hate to break it to you, partner, but you already sound like a jackass.

That’s not so bad though. That means the pressure’s off. You’re a jackass. I thought it was just an insult until now, but you’re the real thing.

Now that you know, you don’t have to worry about it. Just go ahead and be a jackass. Ask her out. Go shopping with her at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Then take her to Frederick’s of Hollywood, make sure she gets the point. Whatever.

Sure, she’ll probably think you’re a jackass. I do. But maybe she likes that. You never know. There are tons of jackasses out there, and somehow lots of them have pretty hot women on their arms. It’s a mystery, but there it is.

So I say go for it. Stop tip-toeing around and just dive right in. That’s what I’d do. Then again, I’m not a jackass.

Dear Don,

My roommate recently discovered his girlfriend of 9 months was making out with some random dude in a club last week. Unbeknownst to her, the guy she cheated on him with goes to college with my roommate (which is how he found out). It’s been 2 days and he has not dumped her. He’s gone on to tell me this was his fault because he had not been giving her any space.

This girl has also cheated on her past 2 boyfriends. I think if he doesn’t turf this chick soon, he is going to look like the biggest chump in the world. What would you do in my roommate’s situation? How do you recommend I go about smacking some sense into this kid?

That sounds like a bad situation. What I’d recommend is this: forget this loser and go be friends with the guy she was making out with. Maybe that guy has some pride and dignity, because your roommate sure doesn’t.

What kind of man acts that way? He should be ashamed. I’m ashamed for him.

But it’s not your job to try and fix his whole life. With things like this, you can’t make a person do what they ought to. Either they see it for themselves or they don’t.

Your roommate doesn’t. He’d rather tell himself stories and pretend everything’s okay.

Well, it’s not okay. And odds are it isn’t going to get any better any time soon. I say get out of there. Do it now.
