Default Why do you love being a dude ?

I'm sure there are similar threads posted earlier, but how about a fresh start ... let's remind ourselves why we love being bros

I'll start things off:

- Testosterone really does help in the gym
- I love the chivalry involved in taking care of a woman
- Easier to relieve myself
- Not having to carry a new human being in my stomach

You ?

I like my beard...
Being a dad is cool.

I like the male sexual response... and "doing the deed" with a woman.

I love women, everything about them.
The way they look, the way they smell, the way they move
The way they feel, making love.
I can go on and on.

I love being able to notice things about my truck. Like recently, I noticed a slight vibration at about 60 mph... I thought to myself "I bet the u-joints need to be replaced".

I took it to my local shop today and said, "I've got a vibration, I think it's the u-joints". They take a look. A few hours later, they call me and say, "yep, they're definitely bad."

I've always like working on stuff. Snowmobiles, motorcycles, cars. I've replaced quite a few clutches, brakes, u-joints, cv-joints, head gaskets. Even rebuilt the engine in my '76 Mustang when I was about 19.

I pride myself on being able to figure out what is wrong with mechanical stuff.

I just started hanging out at the local McDonald's in the morning with a group of guys that is about 20 years older than I am. Our conversation this morning went something like this.

Person 1:The Grand Tetons are beautiful.
Me: Do you know what Tetons mean?
Person 1:No. What?
Me: Breasts. It seems the explorers saw them and thought, "those remind me of my wife"
Person 1:[chuckles] must have been wishful thinking. [general laughter]

Default Re: Why do you love being a dude ?

Sorry to be negative, but I hate being a "dude". I hate it because as a man people expect me to be a man; strong, decisive, confident, works his way through difficulties and failures ... etc. I'm none of that. I'm very weak, mentally.

I'm a failure with women where most guys get excited to be a guy. I like women, but I hate myself near them. I've never approached (and thus loved or touched) one.

Would I feel the same if I were a woman? Probably. But the expectations are high for men, and the sympathy for them is very low. I don't ask for sympathy, I just want to live my life as a normal human being through the gender that I'm. I want to be reasonably confident, active, loving, be loved, compassionate, sociable, ... etc. I want to feel I'm living.

Sorry again for my negative post.

Hey there,

I understand EXACTLY how you feel. Actually, you described me more than you described yourself.

I guess that, when I wrote this post, I was feeling optimistic, so I wrote what I wrote. But, in honesty, I feel exactly how you do.

And, it is unfair.

I guess I'd agree with what you said, Allein. xD Pretty damn pleased I don't have that stuff that results in women going through cramps and what-not. x_x
