Dating Mormons

Recently, I was introduced to the concept of AWALT (All Women Are Like That). I would have to say yes and no. Certainly, there are biological characteristics that all women have. (They tend to be more emotional than men for instance) But I reject the notion that all of them are these self-centered, narcissistic spoiled brats that are portrayed so often on various websites. My wife happens to be very kind hearted and has sacrificed a lot to hold her standards of morality and to care for me and my kids.

Sure, there are more than enough crappy women out there, but there are some decent ones too. Knowing where and how to look is key. Continue reading “Dating Mormons”

Giving Her the Tingles After 14 Years

My wife and I have been married now for almost 15 years. During this time, we have become very familiar with each other. Many, including myself at times, feel like I have gotten into a rut. The mundane routine repeats itself again and again as you are waiting to get old and die. While this trap is real, you do not have to let it be this way.

How Stoicism and Empathy Keep the Family Strong

Some of you have probably noticed that I haven’t been as active in the comments section this week as I normally am.  The reason for this is because my father in law has been in the hospital the past few days due to a possible spider bite that has developed into a full-on skin/blood infection.

The hospital he is staying at is waiting on a culture to develop so they can begin treating what inflicting him specifically Continue reading “How Stoicism and Empathy Keep the Family Strong”

The Infantilization of Men

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been hearing of a disturbing trend that only seems to be growing.  Perhaps this has been going on for longer than I thought and is just now seeing the light of day on social media and radio shows, but when I heard about the first incident I was disgusted.  After hearing about a second incident on the radio this morning, along with finding an article detailing a third, I had to speak up.

Be Your Own Man

Do you guys know that couple that are always doing something together?  You rarely ever see them apart and they tend to engage in all the same activities together.  Last weekend I witnessed a couple like this.  The guy a legit hard working guy and his fiance a good mom, but they have a flaw; they feel the need to spend every free second together.  This is commonplace for many married couples I see, and in my opinion, it leads to a boring, miserable existence.  Today I’ll go over why this is toxic to you, your wife, and your relationship and what you can do about it.

Bible Benefits: An Agnostic’s Review of Bibical Teachings

I am not a Christian.  I don’t go to church and I probably never will.  I’m not a full blown neck beard atheist and I guess if I had to lable myself it would be an agnostic.  All that said, recently I’ve found myself having a more open mind on religion.  There are valuable lessons to be learned and traditional ways of thinking  cannot be ignored.  Today I’ll insights I’ve found in the good book and how I feel they apply.  This is truly an outsiders point of view, but I respect everyone’s religious views.  I intend on this to be a loose series and review of the Bible.  I’ll write about my insights as I read on.

Remembeing to Take Care of Yourself

Over the weekend, I was able to catch up with an old friend from high school.  He’s not too different from myself, married with 2 kids and a full-tme job, except for one glaring difference, he’d really let himself go.  Today I’ll go over why it is important to keep yourself in good shape and looking the best you can, and why it’s important to the health of your marriage and family.
