Still early in my career, I've been in the same position for two years now and feel it's time to move on. It's a salaried position with a lot of responsibility. I'm guessing the standard 2 week…Continue

"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…"

Any Highly Recommended Parenting Books?

There are too many parenting books. Can anyone suggest one or two that are really good?I'm late twenties and moved back in with mom, sister and sisters live-in boyfriend. My sister is lacking strong guidance and my mom isn't stepping up so looks like I need to pick up the slack. I'm just looking for some day-to-day communication or guidance tools. She needs to get her grades up, lose some weight, and be more grateful she has a live-in boyfriend at the age of 16. It's getting out of hand and I'm…See More

I've lost a lot of weight! How should I expect my life to change?

Hello Gentlemen.I'm very excited to say that I'm down about 50 pounds in the last 5 or so months. I'm still losing. I was very overweight, and I decided to do something about it. I'd like to lose about 20 more pounds if at all possible. I stopped eating as much. I took up cooking. As a 23-year-old bachelor, I can attest that those of my species don't eat the greatest. I set out to break that stereotype. I eat well, but I control what I put in the tank, so to speak. Being creative in my kitchen…See More

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
