Depresculinity: A New Kind of Depression in Men

You always knew there ought to be a name for it - the state of mind suffered only by men, related to women and or work... and not be fully living. I have a word to coin. One that's likely been in your life at some point, if only for a day, or a week, or a month. It blocked your ability to meet women, but not to be out and about socially. It thwarted your sense of pride in your work, but not enough to prevent you from getting out of bed every morning to take the bus to that office cubicle.

Most Men Can't Do This...

Maybe you've noticed that with every month that some new social media site, or iPhone, or big new tech fad comes out, there are all the more ways for people to invade your life, sell you things, and even more to spend your time clicking on. but when you have a problem to solve, all you need to do is to Google the question for instructions, but sometimes it might feel like information overload - way more than you wanted or have time for, and far less personal and meaningful than you remember learning used ot be.

Once upon a time, men were friends, and they'd help each other for free. Today, everyone's a "Dating Guru" instead... I’d come back from London’s “Bootcamp,” but it was actually more of a Men’s Expedition to be honest.

Death as a Masculine Power

What does the death of a male mentor mean for your own identity as a man?
The funeral I am driving to, is that of Dr. G. Alec Stewart, a prominent physicist, and Dean of the Honors College where I went to school. In fact, it was his idea to even have an Honors College.
To me, he was THE mentor, benefactor, and advocate.

Immediate Respect from Women and Strength at Work

All it is is a simple circle. That's what I started with. After hundreds and hundreds of pages of the psychiatry texts of my training, hardly ever were Personal Boundaries even mentioned. And yet they are the most powerful force (beyond our passions), and one of the only forces that make us HUMAN (as opposed to advanced animals.)

You Can't Afford "Surprises"

Don't be one of those guys who is "caught with his pants down" when there are layoffs or the girlfriend with the wandering eye wanders into the arms of another man.
In the past couple of weeks I’ve had one friend get “surprised” by a layoff from work, a second one “surprised” by a sudden demand by his girlfriend that they move in together “or else,” and a third get “surprised” by his seven year wife announcing she wants a divorce.
