I'm in a relationship that I've been in for about 2 months now.  To cut to the chase, I'm worried we moved too fast, too soon.  We'd barely been dating for a month when she rolled over and told me…Continue

Is there a company out there that makes quality clothing for bigger men?  In my experience, everything I've bought from the big and tall stores is subpar quality.  I bought a belt a year back from…Continue

All good things are wild and free.

“Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great.”
--Mark Twain

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear"
--Mark Twain

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
--Mark Twain

“I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
--Jimmy Dean

“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.”

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
