Of course I expect most answers to be the same or similar. So men, what do you carry everyday?

Personally, I carry a knife, a wallet, a handkerchief, a can of badger hand salve, and occasionally, a small sassafras root.

Pocketknife. 

Aside from the essentials (keys, cell, and wallet), usually a pocket knife, a pen or pencil, and sometimes a book.

I think there are enough newer members to start this again but amazingly, AOM had the almost exact same conversation about 4 or 5 years ago.

For me its wallet, phone, and keys if I can get away with only that.

I think we had this conversation a month or two ago as well, haha.

House keys minimum. Normally my phone but not always. If I need it cash or card. Rarely more than that. 

Normal things for me to carry: thin wallet, keys, cap stick, and cell phone. Luckily being the technology person I am, everything I need is accessed on the smart phone :P Except for maybe a knife, but then again we just need to invent the iKnife and we're set. There can be an app for that I swear.

To the 'essentials' already mentioned, don't be caught without your business card, if you use them. And Eric, I affirm your mention of a 'thin' wallet. (In my opinion) what some guys pull out of a hip pocket is a freak show. Seriously, some of us don't throw anything away. A growing number of men carry their wallet/billfold in a front pocket. No joke: Chiropractors now treat men for posture issues aggravated by the unsightly cubic-yard dry cleaning receipt collections in some of our hip pockets!
I carry everything in the front pockets

Cell phone, keys, wallet is the bare minimum for me, although I tend to carry a lot of stuff sometimes. Among the bigger things I've carried in my pocket are a book (about the size of those cheesy paperbacks you buy at airports, not a textbook, obviously) or my tablet (one of those 7" ones, not an iPad, obviously.)

You sir have big pockets. I cannot ever get a 7" tablet in my pockets :P

Maybe Old Navy just makes their pockets big. I can fit one into the pocket of one of my ON jeans; have never tried with any other pants. And it's not as if I wear plus-size clothing either; I'm actually a really skinny guy. I was surprised too.

I don't carry these *every* day but if could, I'd feel my essentials would be:

-pocket knife

-wallet

-small corn cob pipe and favorite tobacco

-paracord wrist bracelet

-rosary

-notebook/pen

A bizarre dating trend I see

Maybe this is just me, but one trend I tend to with people looking for someone to date or marry is some fixation on "common interests" or the other person "liking all the same stuff, e.x. music, hobbies, sports, etc" as me.To me this just seems... weird, and doesn't seem to jive with history; romantic relationships to me are primarily about attraction and love, and the specific 'activities' you do together aren't really that important, it's really about the bonding and connection.Not about a…See More
