Attracting Women

Many men have no understanding of the harsh realities of divorce in America.

 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

Did it ever seem that nobody seemed to care whether you are growing as a man or falling into decline? You're going to have to be the one to...

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.

The Three Levels of Intimacy

It's something so subtle that most men don't know it's there, but it's top of mind and of highest concern to women: the "intimacy" part of physical intimacy. Men would generally rather ponder the aspects of the "physical" part of course, but some attention to what's going on between the ears would pay off enormously in your ways of getting closer to women through a physical connection.

We all have varying degrees of tolerance for being criticized, and for how much, when, where and why to associate with coworkers, bosses and friends. As the world economy sputters and missteps - leaving many "trapped" in their current work environment - it sure would be handy to have a quick guide to recognizing the various brands of unavoidable criticism, while being aware of how to be a better, more constructive critic of others.

Perhaps one of the ultimate quotes for men on the topic of courage is that from Teddy Roosevelt's famous speech:

The Four Types of Humor in Women

Tension is not always a bad thing. At least when you recognize that it is the same as arousal, and arousal is a neutral thing simply meaning that you have someone's attention.

On one end of the spectrum, allowing it to build too high becomes anxiety-ridden and uncomfortable, and letting it be too loose - too slow - causes it to fall flat and not be very interesting.

The perfect complement to a gift for creating tension with a woman, is the gift of humor - and the knowledge that there are exactly four main types of it.

Think Like a Surfer, Not an Accountant

Many guys struggle with career decisions such as what to choose in a job, when to quit, how to navigate the corporate politics, or how to even stay afloat in this economy in the first place.

It turns out that this might be the whole point - that in discovering and executing on what it is that you were meant to do in life, it's better to have the mentality of a surfer than an accountant.

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.
