AUTHOR’s NOTE: I totally get that this is a women’s blog. But I see y’all dudes out here lurking on the periphery. This is for you.
Ladies? Send it to a man who needs to read it. You know you know at least ONE.
I am 82 days short of my 40th Birthday.
As I approach said magical day, it is becoming apparent I need to step my mentoring game or something.
I was watching I Love You, Man yesterday, while waiting for history to shake itself out.
I took a pass on it in the theaters partly because I LIVED The movie but mostly because I have kinda grown weary of the whole Apatow/Paul Rudd/New wave White R- rated comedy thing. Seen one, seen them all.
I am starting to have regrets though. Not because I feel like I missed out on having Male friends, so much as I feel like men missed out on having a friend like me.
Someone to tell them it’s okay to be themselves and not some cardboard cut out of the man Madison avenue produces for you.
Someone to tell them that Fucking every girl in the world isn’t exactly a life goal to aspire to, even metaphorically.
Someone to tell them that just because you want to fuck every attractive woman you meet doesn’t mean you love women.
Someone to tell them that it is entirely possible to view women outside the context of a potential sex partner.
Someone to tell them that being a man is 360 degrees of existence. Mind-body-and-soul
Someone to tell them that they would be surprised what they could learn from a woman if they weren’t trying to get under their skirt so hard.
I know I come off kinda know-it-all ish and aloof, but thats mostly because I know how y’all act when dudes don’t fit in your narrow little boxes.
But if you’re willing to Break out of that box. Im here for you.
Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall.
It is a beautiful world when you break out of that narrow confining box and Stretch out to be a whole man, as opposed to that stereotype you’re living.
It isn’t easy, though. I never really lived it, but I can tell it’s a difficult path to go from Pinocchio to a real boy.
If you want it…I am here for you.
Otherwise….Keep it moving and try not to say anything stupid around me, Because I Will clown you.
