I write, i paint, i take photos, i love, i breathe. My dream is to someday write and publish a book on my musings, featuring some of my favorite...
Are There Any Out There? YES!!!
After going back and forth in conversation online with a virtual friend of mine on here named IslandVoice, I came to the realization that there are not a lot of "real men" out there! Atleast I have not met many. I guess the conversation started with Richard Burton and his major "man blend of romance and fire" (minus the excessive drinking ofcourse!) So, since I happened to come across a few rare men lately I thought it would be interesting to write about it. I'm sure many women reading this can relate in a big way and if you are in a crisis of any sort, maybe this will give you some clarity. So grab your cup of cocoa and let's get started!
A REAL MAN.......
Is strong, loving and devoted. They take their responsibilities seriously and they do not pretend to be someone they are not. They have a true sense of "self." A real man knows how to love a woman and appreciate her for who she is. A real man loves every single bit of the woman in his life. I have been around quite a few men that are not "real men." Let me tell you where they fall short in personal relationships and professional ones.
If a man pretends to be someone else, how can he love you? Or how can you trust him in business? Hell if he does not know who he is, then how can he truly succeed in anything he does? He doesn't because eventually the cloak comes down. I have seen this happen with quite a few men especially in the entertainment business. Remember the saying "What comes up must come down?" Well these sort of men always FAIL in one part of their lives. Especially when it comes to love. They end up doing the same thing over and over again and never learn from their mistakes. I'm sure you know or at one time experienced someone like this in your life?
A real man does not abuse you emotionally or physically. Infact they make sure that you are ok because they care about you. They do not take their life disappointments out on you or anyone else. They do not play control games or cause you stress in your every day existence. If a man says anything negative about your appearance because of his insecurities, get rid of him! If he hassles you online or sends millions of texts, this is not acceptable. Life is stressful enough so why is it ok for them to make things worse? It is not!
I have been fortunate to have devoted men in my life but most of them fell short in certain areas. I'm not sure if a lot of men who think they are "in love" actually know what love is? I think they want to love and go through the motions with the belief that they feel it deep, but most fail miserably because the "idea" of love is more important then actually loving the person! ha Like they think it is something else and never take the little important steps like just being "loving and kind!"
A real man makes it happen nomatter what. A real man is a survivor who just doesn't wait for the world to come to him. A real man makes sure there is food on the table for his family or helps someone nomatter how big his ego is. A real man does not have an ego bigger then a house! I guess I have made my point! I know lots of men who are starving and think they are too good to go back to waiting tables or working at Costco. This attitude is mind blowing! A real man makes things happen and does anything it takes. Do you know many who do? I don't! I must live in California! ha
This is a really big one. I have been with loyal and devoted men, but most of them are devoted to their own needs! Yes, the word SELFISH comes to mind. I have tried to figure out why a lot of men are selfish and I really do not have the answer! Sometimes I blame the mother but sometimes I blame their life choices. If a man chooses a certain career maybe that should be the first signal! I'm talking about a majority, not everyone ofcourse! Ofcourse their are many exceptions to this rule and many good devoted men in this world. I'm not here to down the male population but from what I gather in my generation and upcoming ones, is that no one is teaching them how to respect a woman or themselves! Or anyone else!!! I believe they should have a course in school called RESPECT. Especially in this crazy world now where there are so many broken families, a failing economy and chaos!
NEW YEAR, NEW CHOICES...
I have decided that I will no longer put up with selfish people. This goes for men and women in my personal and professional life! The point is if you are in a difficult situation personally or professionally it is time for BIG CHANGE. I know quite a few people going through amazing changes in their lives and it is not easy. Most of their situations are resulting from financial stress and this economy has forced a lot of change. A lot of people can't exist in their rose colored glasses anymore cause the truth is "the world is changing." I do believe the time is NOW and I hope if you are reading this that I helped you in some way. Afterall that is why I'm writing this today. Would love to hear from you here in comments!
Happy New Year!

Money and looks can't buy love and someone who listens is much hotter then someone who doesn't.
