Books don't make a guy more of a man.

He is what he is. Genetics, life experiences, upbringing, that's why he is what he is.

But you already knew this. You married him anyway. Now all of a sudden it bothers you?

Maybe you can find a book to read that will help you understand why he's a pu%%y.

It has to be something HE wants to do. And if HE wanted to do it - HE'd be here asking the question himself.

Guess I'm kind of agreeing with "hisfac" here - just not being an ass about it.

He's sitting there next to you as you ask random internet strangers how he can be more of a man?

I'm afraid the situation is hopeless.

I am unclear what the problem is. What is it that you wish him to man up about?

HE can look in the Men's Clubhouse. There is a "sticky" or two at the top that should help him get started in the right direction.

Why are you typing for him?

Thor, yes the specific topic is that he tends to be a people pleaser. It gets him in trouble. He is too nice when it comes to being flirtatius and he doesnt stand his ground when he should sometimes. he needs to learn boundaries. Simple to me, not so much to him.

Yes I'm divorced but currently in an exclusive committed relationship so I'm off the market.

He probably isn't allowed to own one.
