I'm not saying that it's wrong, but it's not "manly" to wear a $160 plaid shirt.  That's just plain dumb.  

Being manly isn't the cost of your clothing, watch, shoes, etc...  It's how you wear it, and what you wear it for.  I'm a welder, I don't wear expensive clothes or make sure my hair is perfect every day (long hair and longer beard, wouldn't…

Getting to know a girl with a difficult past.

Good evening gentlemen,About a month ago, I met a girl online and we dated for a couple of weeks.  We had so much in common, it was crazy, and we got very intimate.  Then she texted me saying that she's not looking for a relationship right now.  We agreed that we wanted to keep things on a friendly basis.She then invited me to be her plus-one at a wedding.  Since we both hate weddings, I agreed to go with her.  The wedding was a three hour drive back and forth, plenty of time to chat where…See More
