I feel like I'm not a real man because I didn't go into the military when I was 18. I'm 24 now, and feel like less off a man in comparison to my enlisted peers. I was a touring musician and thought…Continue

"The military isn't going to make you any more of a man than being John Wayne dude. Don't join because you have something to prove to yourself or to fill a void; it is not a proving ground. It's for people that want to serve. There are…"

"Joining the military when you have a son is probably not a good idea. It will separate you two for some time. It has the potential to separate you for a long time. Then you won't be around at all to teach him things.  Take some boxing…"

"Hey, longtime lurker here but first time posting anything. Just had to pop on here to say this is a brilliant write-up, MGM. Short, to the point and seems like a great blueprint to get started on new projects. Thanks!"

"Buddy I’ll shoot straight with you. It sounds like you’re depressed. Depressed because you didn’t live up to your own standard of excellence. First you need to sit down and write down what experiences would make you feel happy and…"

J. Andres replied to Nerdbeast's discussion less of a man.
"Joining the military is always an option, I suppose. Each truly worthwhile profession will have its strengths, though. That is (it seems to me) an academic will be very literate because of his job, whereas a soldier may have to work extra on that,…"

"You are romanticizing  the military.  You chose a different path.  It should not take a particular event to make you a "man".  It is about how you conduct your interactions with people and things.…"

Nate Thallas replied to Nerdbeast's discussion less of a man.
"Well said! In fact, an alternate idea may appeal to you. In addition to the armed forces (and their unarmed branches), there are numerous civilian para-military organizations that can not only provide you with a sense of accomplishment and…"

Carl Monster replied to Nerdbeast's discussion less of a man.
"I came to the same sheltered dweeb revelation much later, around age 47. Because of that I have way less options than you; if you feel you must enlist do it now, years have a way of flying by."

"Pride and such is fine. But the military does not make the man. If it is what your heart tells you is right, more power to you. You could also consider joining the national guard, and serve your country in a very direct fashion."

Vytautas replied to Nerdbeast's discussion less of a man.
"I would agree with Shane. You want to know if you're up to the physical/mental/moral challenge. Talk to some recruiters from different branches. See which culture would best fit your personality. If you have a college degree, become an…"

Young'un replied to Max Z's discussion Not enlightened enough...

Mongoose replied to Christopher Chmiel's discussion I want to grow a beard
"While it does depend on the skin type, I did read something which made a lot of sense: Beard oils are for the skin. They are too thin to do much for the beard (the individual shafts of hair funnel the oil down to the skin, which absorbs it). These…"
