Well I can put it this way, my wife likes it when I do instead of speak, she likes it when I take lead on things dealing with the genral public (example...Someone jacks up and I cuss them out or put my foot down--depending on the situation.), she likes it when I handle anything to do with car maintenance, she like it when I clean and help her, she likes it when I get up with our son at 5AM and she can stay asleep... I think i make my point in a couple ways with that list. Woman--ironically--know what manliness is because it's what they are attracted to. They are attracted to trust worthy, hard-working, in-shape, kind, tough, caring, giving, badass when you have to be, CLEAN (here comes showers, shaves, haircuts, colognes, and good style), and intelligent men.

In closing, talk low, talk slow, and don't say too much (John Wayne), read books, workout, be kind, live by a set of values (if you are not sure of what values to start with try the Army's: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage.) and always treat your woman right.

"But, it being my intention to write a thing which shall be useful to him who apprehends it, it appears to be more appropriate to follow up the real truth of the matter then the imagination of it; for many have pictured republics and principalities which in fact have never been known or seen, because how one lives is so far distant from how one ought to live, that he who neglects what is done for what ought to be done, sooner effects his ruin then his preservation; for a man who wishes to act  entirely  up to his professions of virtue soon meets with what destroys him among so much evil." Niccolo` Machiavelli ~The Prince~

My intention in sharing this peice of history with all of you is to simply warn you not to live in the clouds but here in the dirt with the rest of us. It is okay to have lofty goals, as I have many myself, but remember that we must all do what needs to be done first then attempt to attain the heveanly goals set before us.

The different ways you can show that you are manly on the inside are ... You pick scents/cologne that are manly by smell, When you see an animal like a raccoon or a deer you instinctively think prey, If you walk like a man with your feet some what wide Not close walking on an invisible line like a woman, You get defensive/territorial when a male stranger looks suspicious or threatening to you, You strive to provide for yourself, family and others you deeply care for and Your brain is full of manly ideas whether it's hunting or working to raising a family and coming up with new ideas on improvement or something that you would think that would be a good manly project.

Actions not words show the true character of a man, as far as I am concerned.

Somewhat curious, eh?

Absolutely right.  Thoughts and deeds are the measure of a man.

Fraternal orders for young men?

Hello, I am recently returning to these forums after a couple of years with a new-found interest in old world traditions and community building.I want to combine these two interests by forming a fraternal order for young men to be part of a positive group. Because most young men don't have a lot of disposable income the idea would be to facilitate their practical, rather than financial, contributions to their communities.  We would try out and practice old world skills such as blacksmithing,…See More

"I prefer the ESV. I am a theology student and so the "essentially-literal" translation is useful to me since the Bible is the bulk of my research material. For my own personal devotions though I have enjoyed using both the NIV and NLT. As…"

Christian Men

Regardless of the specifics, we can all agree on one thing. Jesus Christ was the perfect Man who died and rose again for us such that we could have fellowship with Him
