If you've never read The Good Men Project, now's a great point to jump in, as our writers discuss heartbreak from a male point of view.

Love owes you nothing, and the Universe owes you no favors: The Counsel of Garlic, today on Elephant Journal
Ask for love and The Universe will laugh, and whisper Are you ready? knowing full well that you are not. The Universe will send you teachers.

In every field of endeavor, however unpleasant and inglorious, a minimum amount of assholery is required. If you doubt this, imagine how inconvenient it would be if even for one week, your asshole decided to stop doing its job.
Why? Because someone's gotta be one.

Say the things and do the things that really matter to you today without hesitation, because you don’t know if you’re going to get another chance. Sometimes, tomorrow never comes.
You can’t allow past pain or future uncertainty to prevent you from enjoying the present. Your life is now. When strawberries present themselves, pick them.

“Men love bitches, women love bad boys.”

I’ve no desire to contribute to the oceans of ink already wasted on this gross oversimplification except to say this:

They got it wrong.
Instead of simply searching for an ideal mate, begin by adjusting the sliding scale in yourself. If you want to find The One, start by becoming The One.

In view of last night's OWS debacle, this is more relevant than ever.

Let's play a game. Name five black men with a net worth of over $100m. You've got ten seconds. Go.

Who'd you come up with? Jay-Z? P-Diddy? Shaquille O'Neal? Tiger Woods? Kanye West?

Now let's play the same game, but with one minor qualification: Name five black men who aren't professional athletes or entertainers, with a net worth of over $100m.

You've got ten seconds. Go.

My contribution to The Good Men Project's discussion on LUST: All men go through a period when all they want is sex. For some men, this period is called “adulthood.”
Jackie Summers has a few things to say about men, lust and sex.
