Guys,I would like to transition from the quiet guy in the pack; input unheard and unable to lead conversation, to a (seemingly) outwardly confident man, who speaks with conviction and secures the…Continue

Curtis replied to Joshua's discussion What is your career?
"Michael, it sounds to me like you have dabbled in some pretty exhilerating things!  Would you mind if I asked how you were able to turn your hand to so many different fields?  Or, at base level, have they all required a similar skill…"

Curtis replied to East London Gent's discussion Girlfriends lies and temper
"East London Gent!   Finally, another one!   Mate, honestly, she sounds like my mother and my ex-girlfriend.  Both of whom are raving loonies to varying degrees.  I would never want to end up with a woman like either of them…"

"There are exercises specifically for shoulders and rotator cuffs.  One thing you can do is ask a doctor, a good sports therapist, or look it up on the Internet (talk with your physician before you start though).  Rotator cuff injuries…"

Shoulders!

Guys, I’ve been weight training for almost 4 years now.  In this time I have experimented a lot. I’ve tried different workout plans, exercises, diets, meal plans and training/rest patterns.I’ve sampled everything from Mike Mentzer’s Heavy Duty workouts, to Mike Rashid’s overtraining and found that neither actually works for me. Mentzer’s regime was too slow and lacking in intensity and I actually found myself getting weaker.  As for Rashid’s overtraining ideas, I found myself with a nasty…See More

Curtis replied to Al C's discussion Getting the most out of day to day life
"Hi Al,   This is an interesting topic and got me thinking. Unfortunately, I think some of the main ways in which men/brothers in arms/friends could enrich each other's lives go, for the most part, against the nature of man.   For…"

Curtis replied to James B.'s discussion Just got a girl's number, need some advice
"Dude, what are you stressing for?  You've done the hard part, now take action.  Call her, ask her WHEN she wants to hang out - decide what you'd like for the two of you to do, be decisive.   If she can't make it…"

Curtis replied to Curtis's discussion My ex is back in my life...
"Hi Adam,   I felt I did a bit of this, displayed a bit of the more assertive, self-confident version of myself.    I've not heard from her since 15th July, which has made it easier to clear my thoughts a bit.  For a few…"

Ricky replied to Curtis's discussion My ex is back in my life...
"I agree run!  I also think for whatever it's worth that the damage that you blame on her was already there - and there is lots of deep work for you yet to do.  All the very best to you!  "

Adam T. replied to Curtis's discussion My ex is back in my life...
"Thirded, except instead of running I would advocate standing up for yourself. Do some thinking about your self-worth and where you derive that.  Chances are you get some of that from your relationships or your treatment of her specifically.…"

Michael J. K. replied to Curtis's discussion My ex is back in my life...
"I have done the same with both my es wives Curtis and it is the best thing really.   My Wife now is my wife the other two did not have the sense to keep me around.   Their loss.  I am glad you came to this conclusion."

Curtis replied to Curtis's discussion My ex is back in my life...
"John,   Sound advice, much appreciated. I've been noticing some of these things and found myself analysing it way too much. "Why does it affect me and not her?" kind of scenario ensued, before I slapped myself and snapped out of…"

John Pound replied to Curtis's discussion My ex is back in my life...
"Curtis, there are all kinds of red flags here. From what you have written then it may be that you will end up paying for this emotionally. She won't though and will move on. That's an almost certainty. However hard this may be then it…"

Alex Mares replied to Curtis's discussion My ex is back in my life...
"Good luck my friend.  I had an 8 year ex gf come into my life a few years back only to realize the pattern...she would go to her ex's whenever she was afraid to make a decision on her own.  I only saw her once, but it was enough for…"

Curtis replied to Curtis's discussion My ex is back in my life...
"Well, it was civil yet unfulfilling.   A long conversation, comprising reminiscing (predomninantly on her part), venting about her recent ex and family situation, over dinner and drinks. The entire time, she was giving me many discrete and also…"

Tim replied to Curtis's discussion My ex is back in my life...
"Evasion will only pique her interest like you're hiding something. Just say "no," and don't elaborate. If she presses and you feel you have to reply, say something like "I'm not in that place right now" [better]…"
