"I'll weigh-in on the developing-courage-when-your-life-is-ordinary issue, because I've asked the same question. My context was vowed religious, claimed by the Church to be models of all virtue, including courage, but usually not…"

"That's an interesting question, Mr. Kim.  Of course, it would be ideal to encounter on a regular basis some crisis or problem that someone else is having and save them from the situation, like a hero from a story.…"

Chu Kim replied to Sean Michael Bach's discussion On Honor, Virtue, and Conduct.
"Some good and insightful points there in the discussion post, as well as in the responses here. My question would be, how does a man actually practice these virtues? Does he wait for a situation to come up, and then respond in the appropriate way,…"

Sean Michael Bach replied to Mike Axton's discussion I could use some advice.
"Well, the dynamic certainly changes if you're no longer co-workers, doesn't it?  If you never have anything more to do with her in the business world, I don't think it's at all out of place to directly ask her for a date,…"

Sean Michael Bach replied to Mike Axton's discussion I could use some advice.
"She already gave you her answer.  She wants to keep her business and personal life separate, and she wants her business associates to be her business associates.  The cards are off the table; she's just not that into you.  She…"

Sean Michael Bach replied to Nick's discussion How long does one wait?
"Do you truly care about how other people see your personal dealings?  Is your love life the business of others?  Do you want to live your life pleasing other people, or doing what's right for you? You want to be with this girl.…"

Sean Michael Bach replied to Nick's discussion How long does one wait?
"One more thing: any man who says he is shy around women is setting himself up for failure.  DON'T.... EVER.... describe yourself as shy around women.  Be more full of yourself.  Be more confident, even arrogant if that suits you.…"

Sean Michael Bach replied to Nick's discussion How long does one wait?
"When you do ask her out... make it clear that you want to go on a date, not just go out to coffee as friends.  Never give her the impression that you're just friendly to her; eventually, you want to be with this person.  So…"

"       Shane mentioned the four Cardinal Virtues, which had completely slipped past my radar before he did so. I think it is worthy for this post to therefore consist of a basic overview of the four Cardinal Virtues, as well as…"

Sean Michael Bach replied to D.J.'s discussion Dating non-Catholics, non-Christians, and the irreligious. in the group Catholic Men
"A good point by Mr. Wilburn.  People can change, and do not forget that your agnostic significant other today could be Catholic tomorrow, as a result of some eye-opening event or other catalyst to her faith in God."

Mike S. replied to Andrew's discussion How do you take your coffee? I prefer it black with a slice of butter in it.

"I only drink it occasionally, but when I do, I like it black and bitter. I usually cool it down with some ice. Never tried the frozen coffee cube trick; never make it at home."
