"A friend posted this elsewhere. It was so apropos, I thought I'd post it here. "Most of the inconveniences that make men swear or women cry are really sentimental or imaginative inconveniences - things altogether of the mind. For instance,…"

"Interesting topic and interesting opinions. From the article: The problem was not the wait. If I had to wait for an hour, I would practice multiplying multi-digit numbers in my head, or do body-weight exercises, or some other training I do…"

"Dave, I think you'll get a wide variety of opinions here, evident by the "more recent" conversations. I think these differences in opinions is largely due to how the men here consider friendship. If this were just a casual friend from…"

"Well, without knowing specifics, we can't exactly say what happened. But my reading of what happened at the bachelor party was that Dave was there as a friend, and didn't drag the party down. The thing Dave said that bugged me the most…"

"You're the one who earlier wrote "A lot of times it's not fear of talking it's not knowing how to say what you want to say.  The emotional language of, most, men is not all that deep after all.  We are emotional…"

"This is the most idiotic answer ever. Ignore Rick. I don't think anyone would say that you (Dave) screwed up, since you were the one being the friend and sticking around -- in fact, the only friend as you wrote. That makes you the better friend…"

"A bride's perspective: Technically, the best man is the host of the bachelor party. As the connection between all the attendees, the groom has an obligation to be civil, but it's really the best man's job to make sure everyone feels…"

"David, I'm going to take a different approach than the other responses, just to stimulate a conversation. I think you SHOULD talk to him about the bachelor party and how you felt left out. It appears from your post that you two are quite good…"

"Give him some slack, and room and I think things will mend up. He is facing getting settled down with one person for life.  That is rather scary.  He is going to be off.  It is not a bad thing but it a major change in his life.…"

Nate replied to David's discussion Should I talk to my (male) friend?
"Yeah, as far as the bachelor party goes, you knew what to expect. However, he could have respected you more as a friend. It was really disrespectful of him to leave you at the train station like that. I would talk to him about it. I had a scenario…"

"Your story bummed me out for you. Men can easily be so callous that way. All I can suggest is to lower your expectations of male friendship. It doesn't get any better than what you have now, only worse. And it's a lonely world out there."

D.J. replied to David's discussion Should I talk to my (male) friend?
"Discomfort plays a larger part than I think you give it credit for. But like the article pointed out, the barrier to discussions are avoided because it makes men look weak. Men don't like looking weak, so if it can be avoided it will be, even…"
