Description

Boys get the message at a young age: don't show your feelings. Don't rely on anyone. This week, we bring you a favorite 2018 episode about misguided notions of masculinity in the United States. We explore how these notions create stressed-out romantic relationships, physical health problems, and a growing epidemic of loneliness. Plus, we consider how we might begin to tell a different story about what it means to be a man.

I see men of all ages going through this and I see parents with good intentions forcing these robots stereotypes on to their children, sexism hurts everyone : I'd like to help our culture change!

I feel every wife should make her husband listen to this (ha ha ha . jk) all seriousness, I really needed to listen to this I'm a mom to son who I can see is suffering with issues that stem from lack of deep, positive connections :'(

meetup.com great place to make friends NOT a dating website. great for any gender toi find ppl who share similar interests as you. a great way just to make friends and if there's not a Gtoup that interests you in your area you can form your own. I live in a small town and there are a ton of groups even in my tiny little town so just get out there. I met some really cool people on this site
