So there's this issue I'm having that might either have some deeper roots to it that I just can't put my finger on or it doesn't. It's pretty straight-forward, really: my girlfriend likes going to…Continue

Losing out in a competition

Hey guys. I uh, I don't know, I'm writing here because this is the go-to website for me with problems of living, being a man, etcetera, and I feel like a complete failure recently; thought maybe you guys could tell me something that could help me out even a little bit. The reason for this is that my realtionship had broken up after over a year; I'd loved the girl very much and I took this thing very serious. But then I introduced her to an old friend of mine who comes from a very rich family,…See More

Your favorite things about raising a boy

So today my wife and I found out that we are having a boy. This is our first child, so we are still experiencing everything for the first time, and it's a wild ride. We're very excited. I thought that since we're having a boy, I'd ask all you fathers of boys what your favorite parts of raising boys are. What do you enjoy most? On the other hand, what do you enjoy least?

Has AOM jumped the shark or is it's just cyclical

There is nothing political or religious about this topic but let's face it, unless I'm discussing going shirtless or masterbating, there isn't too many active groups at the moment. I thought it would be a rude headline for the front page though. So here it is, on Herb's biblical paradigm/TGD. At least I think it is. You can't comment on the group's main page anymore and the feed doesn't show on the community main page either anymore (or does it again now?) so who knows, maybe no one can read…See More
