If you guys are ready for some next-level s**t, this week's "Guy Code" is going to deliver. Dealing with your girlfriend's friends can be a very tricky venture. Most guys just try to be polite and keep their heads down, which is smart, but also very basic.
You can use your time with her friends to improve your relationship. All you have to do is ask her friends questions that are also indirect compliments to your girlfriend. Questions like, "How great is she?" For more on this deceptively genius strategy, take a look at this sneak peek video from Tuesday night's new show, which airs at 11/10c on MTV2.

Like every serious relationship, every serious friendship will face a test of strength. If you're lucky, it's just helping your pal move, or faking an alibi for him. But some of us have to deal with a more delicate challenge.
A long time ago, one of my best friends got dumped. Turns out, his girlfriend had feelings for me. Even though I didn't want to hurt my friend, let's just say the blood left my brain. Here's what I learned, and what you'll learn too if you ever make the same mistake.
1. The Sex Is Awesome
It's shameful to admit, but knowing that our hookup could be harmful and hurtful only enhanced the experience. There was a huge element of risk involved, which made the physical experience beyond incredible. If you've ever had sex in public, you know what I'm talking about--especially if you've had sex on a roller coaster.

It's always a little weird to have a private conversation with your boy's girlfriend, especially if she starts talking smack about him...or worse, hitting on you. And what could be more private than text messages on a password-protected phone?
To successfully keep things calm, take a lesson from Gracie jiujitsu: The more she attacks, the more you retreat. Here's how to navigate a few different text conversations that could easily get you in trouble.

Men and woman have been kissing forever, right? Actually it's a relatively new behavior for humans. Social scientists have no idea why we make out, except that it feels awesome and stops her from asking you "what are you thinking?" Here's some other surprising trivia about smooching...
1. The Wedding Kiss Originated In Ancient Rome
Kisses were used to finalize contracts. The practice continues today every time you kiss your boss's ass.
2. The Term "French kiss" Started As A Slur
In the 1920s, the British poked fun at the decadent French custom of swirling tongues.
3. Public Kissing Is A Crime In Indonesia
Punishable by five years in prison. Not the worst way to stop PDA.

Sometimes a breakup isn't a breakup. Sometimes a breakup is actually just a fight that gets labeled a breakup in haste. Sometimes your ex is your next...unless you've complained about her to everyone you mutually know.
Guys, when you break up with your girlfriend, keep your fat mouth shut. At least for a little while. If Facebook tells you anything, it's that people argue and then quickly reconcile all the time. But what happens in that interim--relationship purgatory if you will--often can't be undone.

This scenario is probably familiar to most guys: Your boy and his girlfriend break up. You've always been attracted to her. You don't want to hurt his feelings...but hey, she's a free agent now, right?
It's an awkward situation, but it doesn't have to be. Here's a quick cheat sheet to dating a friend's former flame.
1. The Cool-Down Period
If your friend is truly in "new day, next hun" mode right after a breakup--and isn't carrying any emotional baggage from the split--well, what are you waiting for? GO!
Things aren't usually that simple, though. If he got his heart broken, you're gonna look like a real dick if you start dating his ex that week. Or even that month. Keep it in your pants 'til he's had some time to move on.
2. Check If He's OK With It
You don't need his permission to date her, but at least let him know what's up in advance so he doesn't feel like you stabbed him in the back. (That said, friends forbidding friends to date exes out of selfishness is a sucker move, so you might have to tell him to get over it.)

She might not be a movie star, but this Rambo is a lot sexier than Sylvester Stallone's. In addition to being one of the most popular SuicideGirls models (you can see why), she works as SG's model coordinator, scouring the Internet to discover future SuicideGirls.
We had the pleasure of a Skype session with the stunning and very sweet Rambo, who gave us some valuable tips for dating SuicideGirls--and convinced us to pick up a copy of the new SG book "Hard Girls, Soft Light."
So what makes a SuicideGirl, a SuicideGirl?
First of all, we're super independent. We have different kinds of quirky interests and talents and I think a lot of us came from situations in high school where we didn’t really fit in and always felt like outcasts. This is a safe haven for all the weirdos out there to come together and celebrate being unique.

Everybody's geeking out over Google Glass, basically a computer you wear on your face and command with your voice. You know, like what the Terminator wears. Except instead of killing John Connor, you're gonna kill it with the ladies. These glasses will be a household staple within a year or two, and will make your life awesome. Here's five ways we're sure they'll up your game.
1. The Hidden Wingman
Turn on the camera when you approach a girl. Your friends can see what you see in real time to give you advice, encouragement and legit objections. Plus, you can look her up on Facebook, so you'll know her favorite music, books and movies for conversation starters. (Just remember to turn that camera off if you wind up back at her place.)
2. Fashion Statement
Nerd girls love techie stuff. Sporting these glasses will give you a nerd pass. Show her how the glasses work and let her wear them. She might never give them back to you, but she'll be eternally grateful.
