CHAPTER 97


STAT STORIES

They question, they fear, they feel, and they are struck with the same deafening self-doubt women have been conditioned to know. As walking magnets for skyward fire bolts < who knew? > men are evolving and revolving around new societal roles. Women are staying single longer, holding off on child-bearing and taking on the role of the breadwinner, men are attempting to fill the scattered gaps that the traditional woman has left behind. 

But let’s not forget men are still men. They still want to be recognized for their James Dean-grease streaked-chiseled jaw-perfect stubble-stallion of a man type qualities as well. In between our definitions of the known and unknown of men are the doors of perception, not reality. 

CHAPTER 63


STAT STORIES
macho man

Men. The mystifying Y chromosome. Ask a woman to define him and she’ll come out with a list of ex-boyfriends who are exactly what a man is not. For centuries he’s been the impetuous prince fearlessly scaling towers and breaking curses, scooping up the princess with his perfectly shaped biceps. But let’s be real, women are no damsels in disaster so who exactly are men suppose to be with no princess to save? The new age man is maybe not who we think him to be. Is it possible that our James Dean-grease streaked-chiseled jaw-perfect stubble-stallion of a man rolls up his sleeves, spits on hands and…puts on his exfoliating face mask? 

We ask men to apologize for his weaknesses and women for her strengths, but maybe it’s time to drop the definitions. And hey ladies, what could hurt in swapping skin care regimes with your man? < Okay…Maybe not totally ready for that yet >
