"Although my dad and I have a good relationship now (he is 85 and I am 51), I didn't have much of a role model growing up due to his alcoholism. I knew very little about being a responsible adult, much less about being a "man." I…"

"First it was a "Man Up" argument that I was having with my wife. It was after her birthday and we spent a night in the family cabin when we decided to leave early. The next day it all came to fruition when she was upset about my lack of…"

"I truly hope there is no end to my manhood. I will die and I will no longer leave foot prints for anyone to follow in. But I hope I leave something within someone that will allow them to leave foot prints for someone else to follow in. Even though I…"

"For me it came in stages. The first big leap was at about age 12 when I shot my first deer and learned respect for life and my place and the role I play on this planet. The second was at age 21 when I put one a badge and gun and joined the local…"

"The more thinking, reading, researching I've been doing about this topic, the more I'm coming to believe that 'being a man', has more to do with responsibility, true self respect/self worth, and an absolute knowledge and…"

"For some people manning up happens in a single moment. For me it was a period of months, when I began accepting leadership positions, taking responsibility for the course of my life, rather than letting it happen to me."

Paul Parker replied to Jonathan Andrew Wondrusch's discussion Moments of Manhood
"The theme that played itself out repeatedly in my becoming a man was undeniably death. I almost killed myself when I was 13, one year later I was in a minor car wreck where I was not wearing a seatbelt, two years years later when I was 16 I was in a…"

"Like others have stated, I started to understand the responsibilities of being a man when my father died. For me this happened at 13. Other benchmarks for me were- My first job and the feeling of earning an honest dollar for honest work, my decision…"

"For me I'd have to say 24 yrs old, that's the year my Father passed away and left a void that seemed as vast as the Grand Canyon. I had already been on my own for about five years and was just coming back from living in South Korea for the…"

"I manned up when my father died. I was only 17, but my mom and my younger sisters leaned on me to be the man of the house. I knew I couldn't fill my dad's shoes, but I also knew that I wanted to at least try to be a manly presence for…"
