Hi everyone, my name is Ivan; I registered a few months ago, after I came across AoM's “Must Read Books” list, which I found it pretty adequate. I guess the reason I’m here is to hang out and have…Continue

"It looks to me like the traits we admire in young can be summed up in the words virtue.  The root word of virtue is the Latin word "Vir", which means manliness.  interestingly, to me at least, I discovered this site while doing…"

Ivan S replied to Liam Hirst's discussion Turning 16 tomorrow... any advice?
"Hi Liam,   Turning 16 is a pivotal moment in a young man’s life, at least it was in mine. You’re at a moment in which you’re trying to discover who you are. I believe you should cut yourself some slack, though; you’re…"

"There a many great traits listed here to take into ones character. All I can really add is a healthy dose of humility. The ability to say, "I don't know everything and believe you have something worth while to teach me," goes a very…"

"To me, the situation is also relevant.  Part of what you (should) learn as you grow up, which, it seems to me, is decreasingly appreciated in our culture these days, is that different situations have different standards of behavior. When I get…"

Carl Monster replied to Ivan S's discussion Traits in young men people look up to
"To me, cussing when you bang your head or get cut off by another driver is healthy. But walking along in a public place, loudly dropping the f bomb when all I really mean is "gee", is not manly, it's coarse."

Carl Monster replied to Ivan S's discussion Traits in young men people look up to
"It's one thing reading to pass the time, such as on a train. The Norman Rockwell is from a time when men were not expected to be especially interactive with their families; I don't see that as anything to emulate either, but then this post…"

"Fair enough but you build up to that; sparring at 50%, then at 75%, then at 100%. Not to mention that, depending on your location, your first fights are almost certainly going to be amateur fights and will almost certain require all participants to…"
