Rachel Klingberg replied to Kevin Go's discussion DIY Ideas for creating a Gentleman's Apartment, not a Bachelor Pad
"I'm a woman with 40 minutes to kill at the end of a long work week, so I'll weigh in. It sounds like you've got your walls under control with framing movie posters. Nothing wrong with posters but framed is much classier than…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to Dave KG's discussion What are the most influential character-developing books you've read?
"I agree that To Kill a Mockingbird describes some manly virtues and particularly, the character of Atticus Finch offers much to be commended and perhaps emulated. I also think Plato's Republic, and other Socratic dialogues, as well as the…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to Matthew Palardy's discussion The confirmed bachelor: a dying breed?
"The New York Times ran an article about married/committed couples who live apart http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/15/realestate/living-apart-together.html It is nice to have an ally at home, someone to hold up the other half, an ally who will be…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to Matthew Palardy's discussion The confirmed bachelor: a dying breed?
"Thanks for that. I guess it's an interesting topic, if people keep reviving it, I don't happen to be a "regular" here so I understand if most of you have already covered the topic thoroughly. I am reading the previous comments…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to Matthew Palardy's discussion The confirmed bachelor: a dying breed?
"I personally do not, but I also believe that you need to have "room in your life" before you decide to share it with another. It wouldn't be fair of me to date and then snap at a decent guy for "smothering" me because he has…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to Matthew Palardy's discussion The confirmed bachelor: a dying breed?
"Could you ask the admins to lock it then? There is no way for someone like me to know that is no longer a valid topic for discussion (given that the last response was yesterday). How about getting it locked if further responses are unwelcome? "

Rachel Klingberg replied to Matthew Palardy's discussion The confirmed bachelor: a dying breed?
"Please excuse me is this was already mentioned upthread, I didn't have time to read all 21 pages of comment. Interestingly, phrases like "confirmed bachelor" and "evergreen bachelor" were occasionally used by newspapers as…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to Beau's discussion Men showing affection
"I am a woman and perhaps not the best-qualified to comment on this - sorry for barging in! We just say "best friends" "close friends" or "BFFs" but for some reason, the same relationship between men is called a…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to Mark Aragon's discussion What Gift do you Give a Mentor
"Perhaps a nice customized item embroidered, engraved, or stamped with your frat letters or logo? You can get some really nice custom items these days, not just cheap beer cozies or mouse pads, but for example, a Woolrich wool stadium blanket or…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to L. Wapelhorst's discussion Ma'am or Miss?
"I tend to favor "excuse me, ma'am," over "excuse me, Ms.," or "excuse me, Mrs.," but I agree that they are all courteous modes of address. I can't always see whether there is a wedding band in…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to Rachel Klingberg's discussion the etiquette of introductions
"It's just a matter of overcoming my social awkwardness - and accepting that most people will not make introductions. I have to be fair to my acquaintainces and not criticize them for ignoring 19th-century etiquette manuals. I am not…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to L. Wapelhorst's discussion Ma'am or Miss?
" "Hey is for horses, who live in a barn."  Haven't heard that one in years! Thanks for reviving that.  "
Nov 4, 2011
Rachel Klingberg replied to L. Wapelhorst's discussion Ma'am or Miss?
"That's odd because I always thought that you shouldn't say "hey" to strangers to get their attention - "hey" is slang to be used only around close friends or family, but admittedly I'm not well-versed in modern…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to Dave Peyton's discussion Stealing another man's girlfriend?
"No. Wait until the relationship ends, then pursue her. It's not okay to be complicit in her infidelity, no matter how fun it may seem. You are hurting another man and that is wrong, even if the man is a total stranger. It may be that…"

Manly Artists & Connoisseurs

Sometimes a man feels he needs to express things visually that aren't all that attractive. Respect for our thoughts and ideas are hard to come by in our current "politically correct" world. No need to be polite here. Show us what you got. It could be a drawing, painting, political cartoon, caricature -- any kind of art -- by you or someone else.See More

Carl S replied to 2risewhenfallen's discussion Any Highly Recommended Parenting Books?
"Forget the books. Set an example by being the kind of man you would want your sister to end up with. And set the expectations (politely) for the live-in about how he needs to act in the home. Some rent, yard work, clean the bathrooms, etc. Not try…"

Tony L replied to Andrew's discussion Fishing
"I live in the Land of 10,000 lakes and grew up here fishing a number of them.  Unfortunately, geography and the type of fish you're looking to catch plays a large role into how to fish.  I don't have any experience in Nevada, so…"

J. Exalto replied to J. Exalto's discussion What kind of woman are you interested in?
"I'm well aware that this dynamic can exist between two men as well, I just thought that most of the guys here wouldn't have any insight on that situation, which I found equally confusing. I've never wanted anything like a male-female…"

J. Exalto replied to J. Exalto's discussion What kind of woman are you interested in?
"Thank you for the insight.  I'm realizing that I value traditionally masculine attributes much more than traditionally feminine attributes like being supportive and nurturing, which never even occurred to me as something to view positively…"

Forge replied to Heath Edward O'Donnell's discussion Gaming and Proper Social Actions
"Heh, on gaming nights hosted at my place I'm usually the one cooking dinner for everyone. I'll say it also helps when you ARE on your own ground and can lay it down if you need to."

Heath Edward O'Donnell replied to Heath Edward O'Donnell's discussion Gaming and Proper Social Actions
"Absolutely. But if the common ground is degrading to a woman, it's time to change tactics. I once, while drunk, delivered a hypnotic slasher smile staredown to a guy during a similar incident at a bar. Ended fairly quickly. Did not get girls…"
