"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

30 Days To A Better Man

Posted on February 29, 2016 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

Today I completed the 30 Days To be a Better Man challenge. It was quite an experience, luckily it was a Leap Year so I did Day 1 & 2 together.

"No, you can prefer something, while still not rejecting another. I prefer olive skinned women, but I have dated black women and very fair skinned women. I don't necessarily exclude them by preferring something else. "
