Attracting Women

Tired of people telling you the "glass is half full" in your dating life? Get women in your life NOW.

 Winning at Work

Let me start by saying that I love amateurs. I love being an amateur at ninety-eight of the top one-hundred or so most enjoyable things in life. I wonder where all the amateurs of the world have gone.

 Being of Worth

When you isolate each trait of being a man and master it, you literally have a Superhero's utility belt for living a powerful life.

Being Respectful Does Not Mean Tolerating Bullies

I have something to say to you and you likely have felt it before but not had the words for it.

It's time to go back to basics and talk about something we almost never discuss on their lonesome - Personal Boundaries.

Let's begin with a recent news story - one of the many depicting men as "bad," "derelict," "shunning responsibility," "commitment phobic," or any of a number of other words or phrases that amount to none other than bullying.

Masculine Intelligence™ in Breaking Up

There's never a good time for it, never a right time or place, and it usually doesn't feel right at all. For some men, breaking up seems to be easy to do, but if we get honest with ourselves, those guys are few and far between. Sometimes those men don't realize that the relationship really didn't offer either person much, and they were only pretending. For other guys, it was easy to break up because they, themselves, didn't invest all that much, or anything into the relationship.

He wasn't your usual elite Hollywood actor. When in between filming “Pirates of the Caribbean,” a commercial here and there, entertaining some jet-setters from Europe, or working on the side as a high-end bartender my old friend would "cave up" in his rented Beverly Hills carriage house to silently work on building old-fashioned record turntables from scratch, “just because."

Secrets of a Female Arch Enemy

Every man comes face to face with the perfect storm of a woman behaving discourteously, the pressure of her peer group (on her side), the perils of gossip, reputation, and masculine identity in the workplace being fragile. What to do flawlessly to navigate the stormy waters...

I had a female Arch-Enemy until two nights ago, when a stunning and unexpected thing happened.

She APOLOGIZED.

Can "Partying Down" Save Your Life?

One of the main principles of personal growth and maturity we tend to talk about at Men's Psychology has been that of "win/win" thinking and behavior. This kind of fairness to others and to yourself - respecting others while being self-respecting and honoring others while honoring yourself - can be a tricky balance to find.

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.

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.
