Stumbled across this site when searching a men's health issue. Seems interesting so I am going to give it a try. I am a 46 year old, happily married (19 yrs), dad of 4 (2 sons, 2 daughters) who loves spending time with my family. I also enjoy working out, bird watching and playing musical instruments. I consider myself a bit of an enigma - white, Puerto Rican, born and raised in the northeast, but love the southeastern US and reside there by choice, a socially conservative Christian who supports gun control. I am amazed that I am trying AoM since I strongly dislike other social media such as facebook and twitter (tried both for a few months) and I am known for not caring much for modern technology – hate to even carry a cell phone and rarely use one. I am very bothered by the culture that I witness that has to constantly carry and be connected to some type of electronic device. Prefer a face to face conversation or just enjoying the outdoors. Anyway, interested in some of the groups here and discussions I have seen. Looking forward to learning more.

You sound like an interesting guy. Welcome!

Welcome.  I've been married almost 18 years.  :)

Roberto,

"Prefer face to face conversation..." Yes, a site like this can be of value and is of value, but face to face interaction is the stuff of relational growth.

Glad you are here.

Paying off a large credit card debt vs. settlement? Are there pros? How bad are the cons?

I am going start with the disclaimer: Yes I realize the mistakes I have made to get to this point.As a results of a departure from a job and lifestyle I did not enjoy, and things "not going as well as forecasted" in my early 20s it appears I have accumulated a large debt on a credit card of mine.  The minimum payments are manageable, however don't really get me anywhere, too large of payments are over extending myself since I do have other financial obligations.These obligations are normal ones…See More

For men with beards to show and share the great life of having a beard. Can there be anything more manly than a beard?

"Rinsing beans and not cooking them in the water they soaked in drastically reduces the farting. Also, if you eat them regularly your body deals with it and you don't fart like you do if you only eat them sporadically"
