Curtis replied to Brett McKay's discussion Who Are Some Unmanly Men?
"So the fact that some men aren't keen on their chest, back or shoulder hair makes them unmanly?  That's a bit of a reach."

Curtis replied to Alex Pape's discussion How to meet women without online
"Agreed.  I tried that online sh*t and found it too awkward.  I rarely piqued a girl's interest with my messages, let alone maintained it; but I'm pretty confident I'd have done alright in person on a date.  The hardest…"

Curtis replied to Pale Horse's discussion Pickup Lines
"The problem I find with those lines is; unless its Ryan Gosling delivering it, it's met genuine malaise.  Being that kind of direct requires unwavering, unapologetic self-confidence...a pick-up line offers a man the same thing discretion…"

Curtis replied to Chris Jay's discussion Awkward problem - embarrassed about the size of my member..
"I would suggest you learn to use it as an onboard motor.  Practice the skill of windmilling it underwater much like the propeller on a motor boat, problem solved.  We must to learn to adapt to our circumstances, not hide them."

Curtis replied to Victor's discussion What do you think of this situation?
"I get where you're coming from and, for the most part, agree with you.  Judging people out of context, without understanding their issues or backgrounds is wrong.  However, this is a serious consideration Jeff needs to come to a…"

Demetri Martinez replied to Curtis's discussion Can you learn/teach tranquility?

Can you learn/teach tranquility?

Hi Guys, Quick question regarding the tranquility with which some men, regardless of age, carry themselves with.  It's isn't just confidence, it's the furthest thing from arrogance, but it is the most polarising male trait I've ever witnessed. The guy who stands by his woman or his friends, quietly, obviously comfortable without feeling the need to get involved in banter or conversations he doesn't care for - but he doesn't feel out of place although he isn't involved.  Any time someone makes a…See More
