It has been a few moons since anyone has talked in this group. I was hoping we could re ignite and get some activity here!
I have been a lurking member of this site for a few years and wanted to become more active as I am also looking for a mentor.
I am a 41 year old engaged man with a 16 year old son. I'm trying to balance between the needs of work, my son and my fiancé and find it to be a struggle at times. Not to mention I am trying to better myself as a man and just feel a bit overwhelmed in general. I think being able to talk to others here would help me a great deal! What say you?
Hey Rocco. Like you, I found little action going on in this group. I haven't really been back and, to be honest, forgot about it without conversation update E-mails reminding me every so often.
I certainly know what you're talking about when you discuss trying to find the balance between the boss, the wife, and the kids. So often I feel like I'm busting my butt and making nobody happy. Then I get all "What's the point?" That's when I slap myself back to my senses and get back into the fight.
Where do you live? Region is fine, I don't expect specifics. Also, when are you tying the knot?
In the interest of helping out a fellow brother - and for that selfless reason only - feel free to come down to Southern NJ and do all the yardwork you find at my house. I mean, you did say you find it therapeutic...
It only takes someone to start a discussion or talk.
If we all sent one post a month it would generate more talk.
Another part of this is connecting older men to younger men
or men that need a male friend maybe not due to age difference but to
areas of interest that are the same, that we could connect outside of the group as well.
Sometimes if someone is not making posts the group slows down.
I like your idea and your enthusiasm!
