Just A Guy

Just A Guy“I’m just a guy” is thought millions of times a day in private.

Don’t blame me…”I’m just a guy”.

What does it take to be a guy?

Most girls want a good guy. It can’t be avoided. We exist for one another. A biological, social, and spiritual reality. A guy who loves a girl is acting with cosmic validation.

If you are stupid then you can have any differing opinion you want.

Guys who are just guys like cars and sports and work and being fathers and husbands. Teaching a kid things you know are good for kids is a beautiful thing to be proud of.

It ain’t easy.

It ain’t easy being just a guy.
