Greetings,

     I am an infantry marine currently deployed to Afghanistan. This is my 2nd combat tour to Afghanistan (lucky enough to have internet access this time) and I also had one to Iraq.  I am a mortarman by trade, but since we aren't using mortars here anymore my platoon has been broken down into a provisional rifle platoon, in which I am a squad leader.  I was recently promoted to Sergeant and have been in going on 6 years now.  After this deployment I intend to get out of the military and go back to finish my Mechanical Engineering degree at Penn State University. 

     I am 23 years old, turning 24 in August.  I am married with no kids, but a dog that we treat like a son. 

     Some of my manly interests include cigar smoking, pipe smoking (tobacco only of course) shaving with a straight razor, and my cars (VW GTI and VW CC)

     I love this site and am so glad I found it. I look forward to contributing to the forums and getting more insight on all things man.

Cheers,

Alex

"Great advice, Todd. Christopher, just plan the next couple moves once you know either way so you're prepared for the answer."

Todd McFarland replied to Christopher Everet's discussion How do you handle just being friends with your crush?
"The answer is simple. If you haven't already, make your feelings for her clear.  You don't want to walk away without knowing for sure that you are in the friend zone. If she puts you in the friend zone, forget about her and move on.…"

"Agreed that women's ideas vary widely, which means there are women for who like whatever type of man you want to be.   Don't let any woman define what a real man is for you.  That's ass-backwards."
