How to be a Man
Steve Pavlina tells us ‘how to be a man’. There's some pretty big calls:
A man who claims his #1 commitment in life is his relationship partner (or his family) is either too dishonest or too weak to be trusted. His loyalties are misplaced. A man who values individuals above his own integrity is a wretch, not a free thinker.
And some clichés:
A man is an active giver of love, not a passive receiver. A man is the first to initiate a conversation, the first to ask for what’s needed, and the first to say “I love you.” Waiting for someone else to make the first move is unbecoming of him.
(could be some truth, maybe, I guess.)
I don't think it's perfect, but it helps me begin to shape a few answers to some of my questions.
