    Getting Too Old To Lean On Dad

    I've come to appreciate my dad more and more as I've gotten older. When I was younger, I decided it'd be better for me to focus on career vs. marriage (my parents' marriage wasn't good in my young eyes). Now I've got a successful career, house, savings, but am alone. I still...

    I Want A Family Now.

    I've always been attracted to men of another race. I don't think it has anything to do with them being white, I think it's just who I've been around my entire life. I assume that the man I married will be white as well. One thing I hate is men that are interested in me BECAUSE I...

    Hello, ladies. So, I hope you don't mind,

    but I'm a single, straight guy looking for a real relationship. Please don't go yet. I'm hoping for some advice. I feel deeply like I am exactly the "strong, caring man" that so many women say they want. I take of myself and others. I'm in good shape and fairly good-looking (I'd...

    I have a caring man. He's just not very strong

    My Idea Of A Strong Man.

    What does it mean to be a strong man? In my humble opinion, being a strong man is more about the mental state of a man rather than his physic. Being a strong man means being your own man. You aren’t attempting to be someone else. It means doing what you can do today instead of...

    A real man never whines.

    He silence himself while finding solution. He doesn't blame anyone for his mistakes neither threatens anybody  when he's weak. He knows how to tame his woman with gentle sweetness and endearing love.

    for me. I want to find a guy that doesn't want sex all the time but can still be flirty. Someone that cares for what I have to say, but will be man enough to tell me how he feels also. Am I asking to much or does that guy exist??
