Ok men, how do you handle it when an ex or fwb contacts you and you have a wife or girlfriend? Do you tell the her immediately that you’re with someone or do you play along? Do you tell your SO or keep it from her.
I’m a woman, and I just had a conversation with a bunch of men that I thought was rather eye opening. They all were talking about how gross childbirth is and how they’ve all heard there’s a lot of stuff you can’t unsee in that room. Yes, I acknowledge that there’s a lot that goes into the birthing process and it can be messy, but is it really “gross”? Are there any men who thought it was a great experience and were appreciative? What did you think or how did you feel being in the room while your child was born? Also, did you vocalize it ever?
And how is this feeling of “caring a lot” similar or different from liking / loving a woman?
Pretty sure I'm hitting mine right now.
Have you ever been asked by a stranger about the cologne you are wearing and if yes,which one was it?
Like a specific time for example “when I stepped on a spider”
Fellow men: I've decided to attempt to grow a beard at the behest of a couple different women who help me with personal grooming things like haircuts and whatnot. My problem is it seems to come in patchy in a couple areas when I have let it go a little, and I'm certain I have fairly low testosterone that makes it grow slowly.
Is there any tips/tricks or affordable products I can utilize to assist in actually trying to grow this out?
My break up was pretty bad. She behaved like an asshole and never cared about my feelings in the end.
Although I have a lot to say to her and in my head I feel like screaming at her for all the horrible things she did. Let her know, how cold hearted she was during that phase.
But whenever she is in front of me, I only tend to say good things about her and praise her. It's fucked up.
How would you classify “occasional” weed usage? My husband and I are trying to agree on what this means in our relationship and are having a difficult time.
I don't know if I am going to like the answers that I receive here, but I still would like to get other people's opinion on the friendship/relationship that I have found myself in.
I moved to a new area as of August, and by October I have found a group of guys to hang out with (I am a girl), one of these guys lives in my local area, and so I began to hangout with him more one-on-one, and for over a month now, we hangout out every night. Whether that be in-person or online playing video games, or even me going to give him rides from work to home.
Most of this time spent (at like 80%+) it is just one-on-one, and it will be like hours of time spent. And over this time spent with him, I have grown to really like him and appreciate him, deeper than just friends. Unfortunately for me, he told me one night that he does not want a relationship, because he "is not good at them" and "never meets the expectations of his partner", but I don't have expectations of him, and I don't want him to change on behalf of me.
I have not told him how I feel as I don't want to push him away because of the feelings I have for him, but at the same time, what we do together on a nearly daily basis sends me mixed signals... Long and short of this all to say:
"What should I do?"
When have you stayed in a loveless relationship simply because it seemingly improved your value or the way you were publicly perceived?
After stepping away from a 5 year relationship, I realized that it lasted as long as it did because we were BOTH getting lots of outside public validation and benefits from our union. My therapist said that this is more common than one would think; when was a time you realized this?
What kind of bothers me the majority of my [M28] life is, that I always have to put in the full effort when it comes to women and the dating process and later on maintaining the relationship.
- I need to start conversations and hold them
- I need to decide if the first impression and character is worthwhile o proceed.
- I need to keep the contact.
- I need to ask them out for a date.
- I need to plan everything for the date.
- I need to keep asking and planning for subsequent dates.
- I need to ask her if she wants to commit into a relationship.
Now you could say, I don't need to do one or any of it. Well if my goal is to die alone, then you are right. Until now, I can also accept it as it is and follow the rules. But at this point, when I am in a relationship, I also have to:
- Suggest activities for the weekend, otherwise we would just stay at home.
- Plan and check everything for the activities
- Suggest and plan even holidays
- If she wants to eat outside, it is up to me to search for something interesting.
- Most of the time I have to suggest what to cook for dinner.
It is never really demanded, but quietly expected. Like either I suggest and plan something, otherwise it will not happen. But what bothers me a lot is, that in a regular interval, I think about bringing her flowers, plants, or when she wrote me she had a bad day at work some snacks. When I planned a trip, I always made sure that something small w did or visited was special. Something to remember.
But at the same time, I am missing this from my partners. Like planning something unexpected to surprise me. I am a man, but this doesn't mean that I don't like this small thoughtful gestures as well.
It is not about money, it can be for free, but it is about the gesture and the assurance, that the other person really thought about you and tried to make you happy. And when I have to plan everything in the relationship, it becomes like work to me and I stop enjoying it.
Now many will suggest to just talk about it, but how to do it, without actually destroy the joy by requesting something, that should be totally normal? Because asking for it would completely destroy what makes it so great.
You give a lottery ticket to a friend and they win $1 million dollars. How much do you expect and would you go far to make an issue out of it if you nothing ?
As a pale dude, I find this the most frustrating thing.
I gym and look after myself in most every way. But skin tone is the most difficult thing. Fake tan is time consuming and looks shit. Plus there's judgement about guys fake tanning.
Whereas tanning everyday is bad for your skin, causes skin cancer and prematurely ages you.
Curious if anyone has found any happy balances to keep a healthy looking glow.
