Be A Man

I was recently out in the city and was noticing the interactions of some young single whippersnappers and it inspired me to draw this comic. Not because I am some super pimp dating guru, but simply because I remember when I was young and single and stupid, chasing after girls and not understanding why things weren’t working out. For most dudes, it takes a while to have that realization that you have to be more than just a “nice guy.” Of course, this is only part of the puzzle, because like I show in the comic, the reaction to this realization can result in major asshole-itude. It’s subtle. It’s something that can’t be told to you. It’s something that comes with age — hopefully. So as fun as it is to imagine what if some future me could have traveled back in time and dropped all this knowledge on younger me, there’s a good chance it wouldn’t have made one bit of difference.

  1. Nah a good man has better taste than to go after tramps who play games….

    Good women just aren’t like that…

    I don’t know any good men or women though.

  2. This whole “be a man” stuff can get tiresome. Like you, I feel sorry for young dudes who have to force their way through that thicket. It doesn’t help that we’re constantly bombarded with TV shows, and especially commercials, designed to heighten anxiety in this regard. (I’d like to take whoever is responsible for those “Drink Miller Lite or you’re a fag” ads and drown him in a vat of testosterone.)

  3. You’re giving away trade secrets. Stop. Or I’ll have to stare at you in a slightly threatening manor, while not really looking at you.

  4. Thanks for that awesome posting. It saved MUCH time 🙂
