Five Ways to Lose Weight

I was a skinny kid.

Now, along with many other men of a certain age, I wage an ongoing battle with my waistline. I’m not fat, but as someone who played three sports in school and has finished three marathons, I have pride about my appearance and it vexes me to no end when I look at the scale. I’m not in a bad place, but I’m not where I want to be. That said, I’ve dabbled in many … read more

5 Things Men Can Do Right Now

Nobody knows what men are doing anymore—especially the men. There’s no denying that the glass ceiling still exists, but things are changing. While women are on the rise, both in work and education, young men are experiencing a lag. They lack role models and many of their older counterparts are falling behind (and in some cases, falling off). Here are a few suggestions to help men thrive.

Most women keep a mental list of the qualities they seek in their partner. Some lists are short and to the point. Many are long—way too long—and they’ll get in the way of finding The One. Your Guy’s Guy suggests that being mindful of a few red flags can save time and streamline your search process. If the man you’re seeing has issues with any of these four behavioral … read more

When Guys Say “No” to Sex

Yes, you read the title correctly. In this new world of ours, women have accomplished feats and held roles that were traditionally “male”. If you don’t believe me, just ask Rosemary Flores, a female wrestler at Curtis High School in New York who not only competes, but is also the captain of the boy’s team. And she boasted an 11-0 record including nine pins—against boys.

Things have changed and there are no signs of slowing down, nor should there … read more

The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to Traveling Light

I completed a three-week business trip through Asia carrying only one bag.

It’s not for everyone, but it worked out fine. I’ve been all over the globe for business and pleasure and over time learned not to let unnecessary luggage, clothing and other stuff weigh me down. And I don’t like checking bags if I don’t have to. You’ve seen how some people tote around all their junk wherever they go. I recall an overnight business trip to Miami … read more

Is Technology Killing Dating?

Technology has made interpersonal communication and hooking up so easy and disposable that real dating is as difficult now as it was before the Internet or social media enabled our efforts. Before the Internet, guys put themselves on the line when meeting a lady. We’d hit the bar or the gym and organically strike up a conversation that might lead to another conversation that … read more

They say all good things come in moderation.

I agree, except when it comes to sex, but that’s for another post. This one is about living a fit life. I’m no fitness expert, but I just ran the 6.2-mile loop around Central Park for the third time this week and have logged three marathons. I know what’s worked for me. You can decide if it works for you. Here are a few concepts to … read more

The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to Spiritual Books

Being a Guy’s Guy is not all sex, drugs and rock n’ roll.

Reading keeps us in touch with our inner selves and reminds us of our collective connection to the universal consciousness. I’ve read hundreds of books in all genres, but I’m called back by great stories about regular people finding their paths and enlightenment and books about energy and spirituality.  Life speeds by in a flash, and it’s important to take a breather now and then and … read more
