Great guy too. Loved to talk philosophy and art. Hot.
My partner cries if he gets emotional, loves to cook, and cuts hair for a living, and he is AMAZING. A much better man than some of the more traditionally manly manly masculine men I've dated. He has loads more female friends than guys, although has good guy mates too. Once men stop being immature teenagers, often they can handle friendships with other men who don't happen to be into football-and-beer-and-swinging-dicks.
I actually think that encouraging people to be confident in who they are and not to let fear and increasingly outdated stereotypes tell them there's something 'wrong' with them IS helpful. But there you go. Call me crazy.
Fair enough. There are androgynous women who find them attractive or even masculine women who like feminine men. It's all about polarity.
Have you read The Way of Superior Man. It's a book for men but great for women too if they want to understand men. Read it, it goes deep into polarity (masculine, feminine). Androgynous
Call me crazy and pig but those old stereotypes worked for the most part. You wouldn't be here without them. And women themselves are actually saying Where are Real Men..
Question: You think it's great to have a man who couldn't defend you because he was real skinny and didn't know how to fight? You find it sexy. No one is talking about being macho and dick-swinging..just about quiet confidence. Which is what bulking up and taking up a martial art would do for a skinny guy.
