We’re not only writers, we’re readers and below are some of the highlights of the past few weeks that we wish to share: Men to blame for childless women? – In Asia there’s a new tendency for men to go their own way – with thousands shunning marriage and kids for a life of independence and control, which no family court can destroy. The same thing is happening across America and Canada. In fact, author Helen Smith PHD recently published a book entitled Men on Strike, where she notes that: ‘America has become anti-male. Men are sensing the backlash and are consciously and unconsciously going on strike. They are dropping out of college, leaving the workforce and avoiding marriage and fatherhood at alarming rates.’ (DAILYMAIL) Married or Single? Pick a Box – A lot of women spend time learning and preparing to be a wife… [Read more]

social-media

Many people seem to get upset at the success of their friends and family on Social Media spaces. It isn’t jealousy as much as it is something that makes them take it personally when people post happy updates. I assume this is because the person getting upset lives a relatively routine life. If you find that this is you, I ask that you consider this one truth – much of what people post are the highlights of their lives… it isn’t their “life” so much as it is a dynamic film reel of their respective experiences. People rarely if ever announce the embarrassing, down times in life because to the Social Media world they want to show a good face. Social Media could easily be a celebration of all of our raises, marriages, children walking, and cats doing back-flips but to many it is a scale with which to… [Read more]

Sometimes curiosity can get the better of a man and cause more problems than we need in our lives. We ask things knowing we won’t like the answer then say and do something stupid out of reaction to it only to end up apologizing or losing the love of our lives for it. Some things are best left a mystery and I will explain why and how you should move your mind past it. 1. How Many Men Have You Slept With? Some men have this wondrous illusion that they will go out to the Club, meet the hottest women living and she will end up being as pure as a virgin having had sex with one ex-boyfriend and that’s it. This is dumbass thinking, it really is and it is void of all logic being that women get down just like men get down…. [Read more]

Recently friend of the site and fellow “Man of Honor” Darryl Frierson of Ashy2Classy.net penned an article on the losers (my word) who had something to say about the charitable contributions of Andre “Dr. Dre” Young and Kevin Durant. People were upset at Dr. Dre for donating 35 Million dollars to the University of Southern California (USC) instead of (insert random HBCU here) and mad at Kevin Durant for “not giving enough” to Oklahoma City for the tornado disaster. In my school (and obviously the same school that Darryl was raised in) you stay out of another man’s pockets unless you yourself are doing something. Too often in our Twitter age do we take on this guise that Celebrities are non-people who must bend to the demands of the hive. It becomes frustrating for everyone involved and it becomes especially disgusting when it’s a charity that… [Read more]

military-cemetery

It isn’t spoken about enough but like many other pink elephants in the room, the lack of true reward for the military soldier in a country that has so much is one that nobody wishes to talk about. Yet daily we see our parents, siblings, sons, and daughters put on the uniform and sign away years of their life in order to meet the needs of the state. These needs are not something that is either new, or something that will ever change as far as I can see. War is hell, but war is a part of the human experience. Unfortunately, as we all very well know, war desires warriors. As civilians we have the weight of support and gratitude for our Spartans who are lucky enough to come home with their shields as opposed to on them, but speak to many veterans and… [Read more]

angry date

After dating many women and going through the phases of eager, to hopeful, to cynical, a man tends to get to a point where he’s heard it all, seen it all, and experienced it all. It is a kind of mental Zen where you are able to see red flags from a mile away, turn down dating offers you know will be disastrous, and pounce on the good opportunities whenever they present themselves. The following list is from the wolves that have been there 100 times over and are willing to tell you what they look for to avoid and what they know not to do. It is a good list to scan if you are in the dating game because a lot of these are mistakes that you don’t want to make and lose someone special. As a man, I will not continue dating… [Read more]

Have you ever dated someone who treated you like garbage, disrespected you or took advantage of your goodness? Well for those who have it probably becomes a guilty pleasure to see life’s karma destroy their lives while you continue to be rewarded for them being out of your life. Sometimes it’s a situation where you were the good battery that fueled their life and they cheated on you, you split, and now their life is in shambles. It will feel extremely guilty or evil to relish in the fact that you were the one that got away. You scan their old business website to see that it’s down, you notice that they have disappeared and then one day you see a picture and they are out of shape, old, or pregnant. No matter who you are there is a certain pleasure in this isn’t there? You naughty,… [Read more]

Many women seek money in their mates while enjoying the luxuries of a modern society of gender equality. Men on the other hand have not fully evolved into this and still find it necessary to provide for their wives as well as themselves. Women in the dating world use buzzwords and codes when describing a man of money. Code that can be deciphered through words like: “I want a man that is ambitious” or “I want a man with a degree and goals”. All of this translates into their want for a man of high salary. Appearances may die over time but a man’s desire for appearances doesn’t  Wealth and riches comes and goes but a woman’s desire for shiny things lasts a lifetime. With that said, why is it that society calls men superficial for seeking beauty yet calls women “smart” for seeking a wealthy… [Read more]
