Hello there! I'm Dave, a recent college grad currently living in Oklahoma. Although my actually call the upper Midwest my home. I graduated from college in May with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. Right now I'm currently employed as an officer in the Air Force, and got posted down south in Oklahoma to undergo pilot training. 

As far as sports and hobbies go, I picked up fishing last year, hopefully soon I'll get the hang of actually finding the fish. I played hockey and soccer recreationally when I was younger, tennis during high school, and got into running as I went into college. Last year I ran my first ever half marathon at the Air Force marathon in Ohio. During my free time I enjoy doing some casual gaming or going out to see whatever's new in theaters. 

I started reading AoM last year and really liked it's down to earth articles on how to build the skills and characteristics that actually define you as a man. I'm working on applying some of the things I've read around the site to my hobbies and personal life so I can be a truly better man. 

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about the military, flying, or studying engineering. And, if anyone knows what there is to see and do in Oklahoma, I'm all ears. I find this state's lack of lakes disturbing...

I have no idea how to be with my junior Marines how to gain their respect as a leader and their trust. Especially since some were…See More

Out to Build Bridges

This is a GSRM (Gender Sexual Romantic Minorities or LGBTQ+) group.  But And straight men and cis-men are encouraged to join as well.However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled.  The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities.  This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered.  And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.Debate…See More

"Aren't old people supposed to be wise? It's a possibility, not a guarantee. Theodore Dalrymple has an essay on this (though he may not have known it):  http://www.city-journal.org/html/16_4_oh_to_be.html -- I'll say that as long…"
