I stumbled across AoM after I saw some of the posters on tapiture.com. I kept wondering what the Art of Manliness was. So, after a quick Google search, I found it. I've been spending a good chunk of…Continue

"The fact that you are asking these questions gives more evidence that 1) she's not where you are emotionally 2) you understand that....so align your actions with that. That does not mean, more attention because you have to keep her, rush the…"

My ex is someone I've known forever and we had dated on and off again before getting serious and it was really just hell. So, I don't have a lot of experience.Anyway, my…See More

Advice on Dressing for a Conference

I typically dress in slacks and a nice button down shirt or polo shirt for leadership meetings at work or for the monthly meetings held by the county affiliation for the party. Would this be fine, or should I at least wear a jacket; or maybe even a suit? Any advice is greatly…See More

The Great Debate

"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
