It's not personal--some people can't get on TAM every day. Some people feel they don't have something worthwhile to add.

I haven't read many of your other threads, and I just read this one today. I think I read a bit of your thread on Valentine's Day. A lot of people responded to that thread.

You seem very angry. That may be why people don't respond to you as much as you would like, especially if they get angry responses from you in regards to their posts.

Like I said, I've only seen a few of your threads/posts, so I don't know if my observation applies to ALL your threads, just a few that I've seen.

Semiprofessional opinion - as a child you have no way to judge your parents objectively. You lack a frame of reference. You don't know their motives.

Your parents mistake - they did not push you. My parents didn't either. They never panicked when i chose psychology. They didn't understand it. They understood engineering (my late brother was an EE).

But they supported me. And as they saw that i managed to make a living out of my interest for the human mind they told me to stay put and not return... They were right.

I suggest you work thru a lot of the above in IC. And try to make peace with your parents.

I do think that there have been a handful of unkind posts towards you. I think most of it is frustration. I'm sorry that you are dealing with that.

Re: I'm looking for a Men's Group!!!

Dude,
Gotta let things roll off your back.
Let your wife's indifference roll off.
Let it all roll off, and start focusing your thoughts specifically on ways to improve your life.

You want to feel stronger? Get a job you're proud of. Put out some resumes.
You want sex? Go get some. Thousands of women that need it worse than you do.
You think God wants you sitting around doing nothing to improve your happiness?
Tell your wife you need sex and if she won't take care of your needs, you're seeking it elsewhere. I'll bet I know what she'll say.
You want to feel better, happier?
You've got to do something to get what you want.
A men's group or new friends can't serve it up for you. Gotta go get it.

Your mom and dad raised you. YOU don't have to let the past define you.

What do you want?
Go get it. Life is that simple.
Stop worrying about that which you cannot change.

Get a grip. We try to help others much as we can. We have lives outside of TAM. I don't have much time for this, but I try to engage with you as much as I can.

This is the type of victim thinking keeps you down. No one wants to knock you. We're not your dad. Do you understand that? If not, why post anymore.

This makes no sense to me. Asking about your father is an obvious question after you ask about mens groups. Your response is curious.

I would suggest the Masons. I'm not a member but my nephew has been for years and I wish I had joined years ago.

Think about shooting clubs, hunting and fishing clubs, history clubs, athletic clubs, charitable clubs. The lst seems endless. If I had it to do over I would take up boxing or even karate.

I don't see looking for a men's club to talk about personal issues except as a byproduct of being around other men and making friends. However, one gets that kind of help by assimilation.

One thing i'm curious about is your comment that your father didn't teach you math. That's what teachers are for. Sure parents help a bit but just barely. Teaching methods change so much its near impossible to follow anyway from generation to generation.

There are also many self help groups I imagine.

The mods don't close threads unless you ask them or violate forum rules.

I guess I won't be able to post anymore on TAM.

The moderators did not return my private messages where I ask them questions.

I guess it's time for me to move on.

The mods have a life too. Do you know why your threads were closed?

I'm guessing threads were closed because there were so many of them.

Re: I'm looking for a Men's Group!!!

Outside of a church I sincerely don't know what a Men's Group is.

If anyone read Wambaugh, when I worked the street we frequently met for 'choir practice' but everyone from the team and then some was invited.
