"A March article in the Boston globe garnered a lot of attention headlining that 'the biggest threat facing middle-age men isn’t smoking or obesity. It’s loneliness.' The post resonated with many men because we know it’s true!"

"As children, we made the much needed connections with ease but as we’ve grown up we’ve also grown apart"😞 BUT, +The Good Men Project is re-inventing Media on IndieGoGo! 😃

Vertical Masculinity: Changing the way we think about manliness

"I believe that many of us have been fed a flat, horizontal way of thinking about masculinity and what it means to be a man. Instead of appreciating God’s creativity in man, we have accepted the taught cultural and Christian “recipes” for masculinity. Manliness is way more than just a sloppy, congealed mess of dutiful leadership and fighting warrior. Masculinity can be a balanced plate of vulnerability, mystery, strength, peace, nurture, fortitude, and emotion."

Looking back upon my adolescent years, I realized that I desperately needed another man in my life. I yearned for someone to believe in me and tell me. I quietly wished for someone to show me the way and sometimes walk beside me so I could see real life in action. I wanted to know that my masculinity and identity were both in tact and that my life was headed in the right direction. I needed a mentor. I didn’t know it at the time and they didn’t see it.

They didn’t see it, maybe because they thought I had it all together. I had a wonderful mom and I was doing well in school. I was an introvert and so maybe they couldn’t read my heart but down deep inside it was screaming “love me,” “know me,” “believe in me.” I kept the hurt, self-hate, and frustrations deep inside.

"It was one of the few times I spent uninhibited time with a male friend. The reckless abandon we experienced together would soon be hampered by the messages I’d be receiving from American culture and the church. Dancing, vulnerability, drama, laughter, and tears were not celebrated masculine rituals. “Don’t be a sissy” was the heralded call. Although nonsexual in nature, I was warned about the closeness I was feeling. “You might be gay” was the proclamation."
