Cummings advises women to look for a man who is ready to get married. "If you want to find some dude who wants to marry you, start in your own back yard. Don't start with someone like me."

"The question is, why would you want to marry someone who isn't ready?" asks his friend Cliff Flowers, a 28-year-old engineer.

Women, they say, must study men. Understand their conversations. Wait. And by all means, never settle. And by the way, they advise, take all those photos of you in the "freakum dress" off your Facebook page.

A what dress?

"A freakum dress," Flowers says. "Have you seen Beyonce in those commercials? That's a freakum dress. They come with a tag that says, 'No imagination required.' "

"This is who we are," Cummings says. "This is what we talk about."

The night is still early. When they leave here, they are heading to a bar-lounge. They pass each other copies of keys, in case the person with the original keys ends up going home with a woman.

These bachelors may have arrived together. But the plan is not to go home together.
