+1.

And Jilly, I agree with you also, opposites attract.



p.s. On a side note, I finally found a wonderful mix of "caveman" and "good guy" in a man and I hope it works out because it's just what I thought didn't exist anymore and what I'd only be able to find in romance novels.

Some of this has to be the fault of the Fathers of the younger guys. Young boys need positive male role models to teach them how to be a man. On this forum most guys already know how to act like a man because the military gives you plenty of role models if you needed one but in the real world boys are not becoming men because they don't know how.
Dr. Phil tells them to cry and share their feelings and society tells them to dress like prom queens and bow down to everyone. Without a male influence, things will just get worse.
.....That ends my public service announcement.

That shouldnt be an excuse....not everyone grows up around positive people that serve as good role models...its up to the person to want to be responsible and do the right thing...

It's not really an excuse, it's a valid point. A boy who grows up with a mother and only sisters may not turn out the same as a boy who grows up with a solid family structure.

(Though that is partly the mother's duty, not to raise her boy the same as a girl).

Exactly. There are big burly looking tough guys with an IQ lower than the number on their football jersey who have really calm intelligent parents, and there are wispy guys who have parents who served in the military. Having a male role model does not equal overly assertive men. It can equal abusive boyfriend, though, and that's what I've seen more often.

I'm willing to bet your brothers had positive male role models in their life though sky. Whether it was a teacher, friends dad, or whoever. My point was that without showing a boy how to be a man, they never will become one. We can't count on society to raise our kids.

Nope...we had no male role model, other than momma...people dont always need that "male figure"....
