I've been reading Art of Manliness for awhile now, and just recently signed up for the community. This is the first thing I've ever posted in the forum, but I figure this is as good a place as any to…Continue
"my goodness brother, my heart breaks for you and your wife. My first child, a daughter is two weeks old tomorrow, and I'm choked up to even imagine. Three years ago my best friend lost a son this exact way. I know I don't have his…"
"Wounds take time to heal, whether or the body or of the heart. If not cared for they can become septic and even more dangerous than the original wound. You and your wife have been dealt a very serious wound. Take time to…"
"I just wanted to take a moment to let all of you know that I have read all of the words, thoughts, advice and condolences you've shared with me over this post. I greatly appreciate each of you who took the time to read and to add your own…"
"Thank you, Tyler, for such a heartfelt and well stated posting. I felt very touched by how you related your experience, and I hope that you have been able to find something of what you need from this site. -- Jay"
"I do not believe I can compose any words better than those that were written before mine. You have been offered some good advice and thoughtful words. As I read your post I am truly saddened by your family’s loss…
I am sorry for you and…"
"Oh, Tyler....what a HORRIBLE, tragic thing to have to go through. I feel your pain and grief as I read your post. While I've never gone through the grief of losing a child (pre-born or otherwise), I do know about grief and loss,…"
"Tyler, I know something of what you and your wife are feeling. My wife and I lost a daughter who was stillborn in her 38th week, just like your son. As if it couldn't be any worse, she was delivered on my wife's birthday!
It had been a…"
"I am sorry for your loss.
I think everyone who has posted so far has had some good things to say. I've never been in your position, but my mother has. I'm the eldest of 3 boys, but I was going to have an older brother. He ended up being…"
"I remember how my wife and I felt when she miscarried. I suspect a stillbirth is more emotionally devastating, and it breaks my heart to learn that you went through that.
You grieve for as long as you need to, then the healthy thing to do is to…"
"You've got a damn good point, Ian. If it's an experience I'm after, I'd grab a big stick and march to my destinations. Unfortunately, there are time-restraints so I must resort to transit as I do not own a car! When there is no…"
"The tea idea is pretty cool. I gave up alcohol this year (with the exception of a few hiccups) and I find I miss the collector's impulse I get in accumulating a nice selection of scotches or tequilas etc. Tea seems like something I could pick…"
"I have to second what Andrew and Carl said. However, with my thick, low eye brows that make me look angered all the time, I can't say I look terribly innocent. However, the quiet traits let me hear what should not be heard.
"They stopped being manly long time back. Except for the Duramax Manufacturers put on features that appeal to women because they are far better spenders and consumers than men, on average. Among the unmanly features are those that have nothing…"
"Thing is, you're imagining that she thinks you're into her, and you imagine she's not into you, and you imagine that if you talked to her about this you'd sound like a loser. It's all in your head. Could be…"
"Have you considered the fact that she may be trying to hide the fact that she has feelings for you? Women are a lot better at doing that than men. Or, she could be convinced that you're determined to get into her pants. If it's the second,…"
