Dear Men, Please Don't Wear ______ on Halloween

It's a well known fact that Halloween is the one night of the year when ladies get a free pass to dress as er, sexy as we like. Meanwhile, men typically take this night as an opportunity to impress people with how absolutely hilarious they are. Whether it's through excessive use of spandex, dressing in drag, or perhaps donning a furry animal suit, dudes will do pretty much anything to get a laugh on October 31.

But while your lady friend is impressing the masses with her flirty nurse, cat, police officer or *insert generic sexy costume here,* the odds are that you're making her squirm with the super funny and "awesome" Sumo wrestler costume that has your guy friends rolling on the floor in laughter.

Once upon a time, I dated a guy who decided to be a baby for Halloween. Somewhere along the way his diaper broke, which resulted in us making a pit stop at the grocery story to buy a package of Depends, with him, shirtless in a broken diaper, wearing a pacifier around his neck and an oversized baby bonnet on his head. Maybe some people were laughing, but I don't think I was one of them.

So fellas, before stepping out this Halloween, please ask yourself the following questions:

1. Will this costume cause humiliation to myself and those around me?
2. Does it make me look hideous?
3. Will my girlfriend (or anyone) still want to kiss me if I wear this?
