I hadn't touched a computer from late Thursday until yesterday night (and only to do some work), so I've fallen behind on my 30 Days to a Better Man challenges, too far behind for my liking. I plan to make them up in full, just feel awful for getting this far and falling behind like I did.

I hope you are all doing better than I.

Then after writing that, I got the flu and was out for another few days... I started a new job yesterday, but I'm still sticking to my guns to clean up the ones I missed.

I had obligations that kept me from doing the challenges too :(. We can always catch up and do them at a later time. Good luck man.

Too much technological convenience - People drive cars everywhere, and rely on services regularily - physical skills like bartering,…See More

How many marriages and LTRs in this day and age are alive vs dead?

Just curious how many relationships and marriages today do you estimate are dead relationships. Such as a percentage wise, 50% or so.I've personally met more couples who's marriages or relationships seemed dead and based more on expediency than strongness of the relationship, which is a bit discouraging.I think there are some cultural factors which may exacerbate this problem:1. Marriages and love relationships are considered "sacred" culturally - in spite of this there are definitely some…See More
