A simple act of kindness was a milestone on my long, slow path to recovery.
What does dealing with and (eventually, hopefully) overcoming heartbreak have to do with being a man today? Everything.
When it comes to sex, there’s a one-word piece of advice that applies just as much to me today as it would have five, 10, 15 or more years ago.

We can’t talk about what it means to be a man without discussing sex.
I find it odd that a majority of men reported not rethinking their on-the-job behavior in light of #MeToo. Really?
What I am arguing is that, while some things, sure, “could be worse,” there are in fact few things as tragic as losing love.
What are the implications on a relationship when a man earns less money than his spouse or significant other? (You’d think this wouldn’t still be a thing, right?)

My therapist told me that violent fantasies were common, that it was the desire to act out on those fantasies that was the problem.
Emotional labor is the work required in relationships — and all the thinking, planning, worrying, and tending to that goes into that work.
Men, we need to change. We need to change our behavior and our attitudes.
While plenty of men have written in support of #metoo, what I found lacking was anything seriously exploring, from a male perspective, the implications of #metoo on men.
