At my last men's meeting I and the only other regular attendant guy was asked to think about picking our animal names.
During the Mankind Project weekend men are asked to pick such names, along with an adjective or two, which becomes from then on the names they use.
I've been quietly dreading this, because, well, it just seemed so weird to me. At best, something a bunch of middle-aged men longing to resurrect their scouting days would come up with, at its worst the stuff of…Continue
I am a proud smoker as many men are and caught my 16 year old younger brother smoking behind the garage when I went to visit my parents. Leif you are a smoker could you teach me how to become a real addicted smoker. He is becoming a man I guess.
What should I do?

I often chuckle at the gods who decided my home life be all women.
I've never particularly wanted a son, doubting my efficacy as a role model and being relieved each time the ultrasound revealed a girl. But now, watching fathers here write about their experiences, I feel a pang of regret that I will never know what it's like.
Well, that's changed lately. We've welcomed a new member of our family, the first boy in our household.

We were reading in Mark 4 this morning the passages where Jesus tells various “seed parables.” Right after those parables, Jesus tells the disciples that they should go over to the other side of the Sea of Galilee. Several boats go with them and then the storm descends upon them.
In the first part, Jesus talks about seed being planted by…Continue

Does anyone else notice that a lot of the "how to dress manly" posts seem to really show what a city boy would wear?
I'm not saying that it's wrong, but it's not "manly" to wear a $160 plaid shirt. That's just plain dumb.
Being manly isn't the cost of your clothing, watch, shoes, etc... It's how you wear it, and what you wear it for. I'm a welder, I don't wear expensive clothes or make sure my hair is perfect every day (long hair and longer beard, wouldn't…Continue
I have tried to be the best boyfriend possible but it never works out. I am tired of meeting the same type (daddy's princess, recently divorced, etc.) Tired of being treated like shit no matter how much I do for the person. When I am told to be more of an a-hole, that does not work either.
Yes it would be great to be with someone but its become impossible to meet anyone decent. I have taken into consideration two factors- 1. the area I live and 2. my appearance (been told I am…Continue
I've met many fine gentlemen on this site and in my little men’s group. One thing I get from them over and over again is how hard I am on myself. To support this I am told, time and time again what a great guy I am, so likable, so comfortable to be with. I've even been called “a man’s man” a few times. The last one, though well intentioned, actually hits a bruise. All these men I've met have not seen me in a real-life situation with other guys; all they know is my online presence or me in…Continue
I am so happy and joyed about my new life! And I can honestly say that I am sticking with it! I have encountered the 90 day challenge through a group of friends, By doing this I have made awesome decisions with eating full meals and snacking. Now mind you, there is nothing wrong with "cheating" once a week. Just don't overdo it. I enjoy a man sandwich here and some sweet chili wings there. However, the focus is health and taking care of your temple! Obesity is the largest epidemic in the…Continue

…God is all compassion. God, three in one, is community in love. God is creator, who goes on making us and remaking us even when our hearts are broken and our lives shattered. He searches for every shard of who we once were and makes something new of all those pieces and his love…

This begins the documentation process of my quest to become a better man. I came to this site to see how I would compare and I find myself lacking. Therefore, I am taking it upon myself to change habits, attitudes, and manners to become a more complete man.
Since becoming a member of the the site, I have changed some of my habits, especially in dealing with other people. The biggest change has been dealing with my girlfriend and when I explained to her what it was I was doing, she…
