"Perhaps already mentioned but the manliest thing, if there is such a thing, would be to have enough discipline to just stop smoking and not let it impact your life or social surroundings.  enjoy the company not the activity."

"May I suggest target shooting? You could do a little William Tell with your friends' pipes and shot glasses. Downside is, if you are a bad shot- you'll need new friends."

Meeting a girl online: A good introduction message

I have no problems talking to women and asking…See More

Black Hebrew Israelites and GOCC
