Hey dudes. I have lurked here for awhile and enjoyed reading through the discussions but now I need to reach out and get some advice from anyone willing to listen.This is a woman-problem post, sorry.…Continue
"I know for me that's just how long it takes before I feel the housekeeping is out of control, and I can tie that to how often I like to do the heavy cleaning and the grocery store sales cycle. That is, it takes 2 to 3 months to realize…"
"Funny, that seems to be a tradition. My wife and I had been seeing each other for about 2 or 3 months when she told me that she wanted to 'cool things down a bit' and we shouldn't see each other. God, that hurt. I had, prior to her,…"
"I don't know if it was you, and it's not important enough to go back. I agree with what you're saying here. I just think this "spend your 20s doing all sorts of self-discovery, growth, and change; then you'll settle…"
I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you're talking about my comments. Just wanted to say sorry if you feel I implied that you fit my generalization. I agree that not all in their 20's have rocky relationships.…"
"Since people are both making generalizations and applying I fit them, and the cultural narrative behind those generalizations is hurting me (totally outside AoM) these days, let me say:
Finishing undergrad was not stressful for me. Professional…"
""There's nothing more to be accomplished by talking about that stuff" - sounds like you're getting it.
Interestingly enough, I'm deliberately entering a relationship right now that's just like the movie. Don't ask…"
I understand what you're saying and if I had of read it the first time it would have made sense and I would have definitely avoided talking about our relationship when she was over on monday night. I haven't heard from her…"
"Let her go. Don't answer the phone or stop-by. If she wants her space then you need to give it to her. If she questions you about it tell her that you have her best interests in mind and yours too and that seeing her makes you feel bad. You…"
This is why you should stick with it, and why she won't if you're too forward with her:
“In life, people tend to wait for good things to come to them. And by waiting, they miss out. Usually, what you wish for doesn't fall in…"
Even if it doesn't work this time, you may now see what you did wrong, and you can fix it for next time.
Each relationship that doesn't work should only improve us to make the next one better. If you don't learn anything…"
"Ha, Yes, You should’ve read what I wrote first. BUT, now you get the picture, and you understand (by virtue of doing the wrong thing) what you need to do now.
Here’s your recovery action plan:1) Just say NO to serious texts. No more…"
"Yes, I've been there. And from my experience, women can sense a relationship's end before men can. Take a deep breath, take stock of yourself, and realize it's over. This is not a bad thing; You had the courage to love. In time, this…"
"fuck man, i wish i had of read this before she came over. everything was cool until the end where i asked her to clarify what the hell happened (diff words). things got awkward and it was basically like we broke up again.
i sent her a text a few…"
"What you are talking about is pretty typical. It sounds like you are both in what I call an infatuation phase. Being in love at this point in a relationship is like a chemical addiction. There is no good way to balance without being in at least a…"
"PS, When I was in your shoes, it came down to "I don't think this relationship is good for me right now". I said - "Thanks for the dance" - reference to "The Dance" by Garth Brooks. i.e. "I had a wonderful…"
"I'm no expert, but to me the thing is you have a lot of roundness, and need some sharp to offset it. The glasses are definitely on the way there, though you might try even more angular frames. I'm not sure what haircut is…"
Hello gentlemen,Following an idea that was present in the book "30 days to a better man" that encourages us to find a tutor, I´d like to propose a discussion about us finding our tutors over here in the AOM community. Perhaps we could find ourselves online tutors since we are all aiming at the same thing: be better men. What do you think?See More
Hey guys,How do you usually wear collared shirts when at work? For me, I wear no undershirt underneath and I usually unbutton the top two buttons whenever I work then I unbutton the rest when I go home. It's been so hot lately I've been keen on showing as much skin as possible. What's everybody's train of thought regarding this?See More
"When you own a Jeep it never ends :D I'm on my 3.5th one (the .5 is the wife's Patriot Limited 4x4, not really a Jeep but at the time it was the best small 4x4).
I've about convinced the wife that we need a…"
"As a former owner of long, thick, wavy tresses myself my advice would be not to go too short, I did for a year & decided (along with the wife) that too short just didn't look good on me. Keep enough for some bulk around your face.
