I want a man not a boy who thinks he can
Newser — Twenty-five years ago this week, a woman told police her 4-year-old son had disappeared while they were shopping at a mall in a Detroit suburb. The child was never found. Police learned about the man when he posted doubts about his identity on Facebook and his belief that he was the missing D'Wan Sims, per the Detroit Free Press.

You want a man not a boy who thinks he can
While the upcoming part documentary on the Chicago Bulls season, The Last Dance , is highly anticipated, the star of the series, NBA icon Michael Jordan, is concerned that the series doesn't paint the prettiest picture of him as a teammate.
Jordan was notoriously competitive, and just as he held himself to an extremely high standard during his playing days, he did the same with his teammates. And while he did win six NBA titles leading the Bulls with that style, it could seem a bit extreme or excessive to an average observer.
But you have to realize that the reason why I was treating him like that is because I needed him to be tough in the playoffs and we're facing the Indiana's and Miami's and New York's in the Eastern Conference. He needed to be tough and I needed to know that I could count on him.
And those are the kind of things where people see me acting the way I acted in practice, they're not going to understand it. The way Jordan saw it, once a player joined the Bulls, there was a certain standard that they had to live up to, and if that standard wasn't met, it was his job to step in, as he explained during the seventh episode of the documentary. So I pulled people along when they didn't want to be pulled.
I challenged people when they didn't want to be challenged. And I earned that right because my teammates who came after me didn't endure all the things that I endured. Once you joined the team, you lived at a certain standard that I played the game.
And I wasn't going to take any less. Now, if that means I had to go in there and get in your ass a little bit, then I did that. You ask all my teammates. The one thing about Michael Jordan was he never asked me to do something that he didn't f—king do.
He may have been a tyrant. Because you never won anything. I wanted to win, but I wanted them to win to be a part of that as well. Look, I don't have to do this. I am only doing it because it is who I am. That's how I played the game. That was my mentality. If you don't want to play that way, don't play that way. Say what you want about Jordan's methods, but you can't argue with the results: six championships in six trips to the Finals, and six Finals MVP Awards.
He may have been rough around the edges, but he got the best out of the teams that he was on, and for that reason -- along with many others -- he is widely considered to be the greatest basketball player of all time. He has covered the league in some capacity since for a variety of outlets including Philly.

My Ex Girlfriend Said She Needs a Man, Not a Boy
In , the fuckboy really requires very little introduction. Once a lone philanderer sharing shirtless tiger selfies on Tinder or, if particularly malicious, Bumble, the "fuckboy" has now multiplied to include a whole array of knobheads — from DJs to ketty boys, horny quarantiners and Jordan Peterson apologists. In short: every typically straight man who is in someway problematic.

Finally retreating to the quiet safety of his bedroom, the man snuggles into bed, wraps his arms around his favorite, worn teddy bear, and begins sucking his thumb.

10 Things Men Wish Women Knew About the Way They Think
Women are often reprimanded for being complicated creatures, but the truth is that men can be just as guilty of sending mixed signals to the opposite sex. A lot of the reasons for why revert back to society's traditional line of thought around masculinity — and what's deemed "cool" or not — but let's be honest: That's no excuse. So if you've ever wondered what we, as men, really think and want, here's a sneak peek at what we wish you knew. Some guys may try to play it off like they don't need praise — they just threw on that T-shirt without thinking — but anyone who tries to tell you they don't want a compliment tossed their way is full of crap.

Are you a boy or a Man? Your 20 + 2 point checklist
Becoming a Man used to be simple. All it took was some hairs on your chest, a few quick conquests behind the bleachers, and wage substantial enough to support a modest mortgage while your wife prepared your love nest for the arrival of the first new member of your family. Your masculinity is defined by the subtle mental processes operating behind the decisions and actions. Being a Man has nothing to do with age. Men know how transient, empty, and unfulfilling other peoples praise is and so work to find the only long lasting source of happiness — creation through action. Men are the ones that are finding ways to take action, despite the barriers in their way. Boys always look for the easy way out. Boys are so terrified of hard work that they look for the effort-free solution that means they can get out of work with the least amount of pain and exertion.
