Every person deserves to have their story told and I feel that we as men don't have as much of a platform to tell our stories.
I find that the older I get the more I resent my mother for how she treated me as a kid. She wasn’t necessarily physically abusive (although she would occasionally spank me with a wooden spoon for bad grades etc..) she was mentally abusive and it really fucked me up. I’m in my early 30s and just barely finding success in life and dating after spending the last 10 years teaching myself how to be a man, how to interact with women, etc.. I just think about how she treated me when I was younger and can’t understand how someone could treat a child, especially they’re own child so cruelly.
A couple months ago she had a heart-attack scare and I visited her at the hospital. I felt almost nothing for her. It’s kind of fucked up.. I’m just curious to know how other men raised by single mothers life’s have turned out. How’s your relationship with your mom as an adult?
Is it true or do you think that people are still able to control what they can?

Hi. I feel like that I'm not confident enough in certain moments and would like to change that. So, what's your method to stay confident?
So over lockdown my so has been a total rock and now I want to pin this down - so proposal is on the cards...Gay marriage has just come legal in Ireland :) - he has no idea - he won’t wear a ring so I’m thinking of getting him a Rolex - but they start at 5,000 plus Euros 🤮 which I have but most of my savings - is this a good idea?
Update this watch maybe
Imagine a female friend who will always do her best to be there for you/ help you when you need it and you find yourself able to trust this person and they're in your life a lot. How do you let this person know that she is loved, platonically?
And when do you know it's the right time? I'm curious :)
Kind of a lame question, but I wanna know what some of you think. I (F) like driving sometimes when it's late at night and I can just relax and listen to music, but I really enjoy when my man drives if we're going somewhere together, especially on the longer drives. I don't have a problem being the driver, but it's nice if he does it. I trust him more than I do myself when it comes to cars. Do you prefer being the driver? I asked my guy and gal friends and the guys say they prefer driving while women say they like them driving as well.
I only speak to my therapist once every 3 weeks. My parents were raised in third world countries, so it would be hard for them to understand. I don't have many friends. I feel like my sister would understand me, but she's currently busy, pregnant, and I never really had deep talks with her. Who is your support system and how did you build them?
Men of Reddit, has there been specific moment, with a girl, that changed the way you thought about her and wanted something more?
I'm also a guy but all the friends throughout my life that I'm close with are mostly girls. I don't know, sometimes I feel like out of place when they talk about girl stuff.
When I talk to other guys, I just don't connect with them immediately. I want to experience some bro time, no homo.
I ask this because I absolutely LOVE when my guy friends or guys I’ve liked have been unafraid to hold my hand, although its only happened a few times.
Do y’all like hand holding just as much, does it make you nervous or do have another opinion about holding a girls hand?
