I am CJ from Fairfield and have been a follower of AoM for about 6 months and finally decided to join the community. Originally from Malden, MA, I am an avid Boston sports fan and get up to the area as often as I can.

I love what I've seen so far and am looking forward to getting to know others through, posts, blogs and such.

We hit it off, started a relationship and have lived together off and on in expat communities for the past three years.Throughout that time I feel like I have been the one who has held the relationship together. I am loving, affectionate and come…See More
Many men accept that women run their relationships, their marriages. It's often the butt of many jokes in sitcoms, Hollywood movies and real life. Only in America does this seem to exist. Or does it? Is this just how it is? Or is there a better way for men to coexist in relationships?
