being a man means taking charge and care of things. get yourself a job, earn money, get an apartment later a gf. this is just the natural way to go. make the first move.
you arent physically not a man, not even mentally. just you are being passive like a woman (no offense but some wifes are really unable to do anything without their man)
you will get your manhood back by starting acting. first the doing then the feeling good about it, not the other way round!
This is virtually the most disgusting post I've read today.
You cannot fault others for how they are brought up or how they decide to live their lives.
There are many definitions of what "manhood" refers to in personality. One of them is daring to voice one's opinion disregarding personal safety such that we may prove a point.
Thus, I could see that everyone on this thread has passed that definition, original poster included, and there is no need to create an adversarial relationship when the fundamental of our being here is to help
but think she almost "feminized" me in a way (no offense to any females here).
There were a number of women in my life whose lives were so full of pain they could not express themselves openly for fear of retribution. Creating rapport with them thus relies partly on the ability of you, maleness aside, interacting with them as a fellow female would, in terms of compassion, empathy and other homely traits.
There's nothing wrong if a male has feminine traits, as the real live examples here demonstrates, there usually is an underlying reason for it. It will give the person a unique way of interacting with others and those skills can make a great difference later on in their lives when a soft approach is desirable.
It's just a matter of presentation - whatever strengths you have from your upbringing, use them for a good cause and develop your own personality out of it.
What gives me credentials to criticise is the fact that I'm brought up as a female, and working conditions in the corporate world do not change that orientation. It's always the women getting the short end of the stick.
So I did the manly thing and turned the tables around.
Welcome to the 21st Century. Minus the chauvinism.
