Being the Man
"You're the man" you tell yourself in the early stages of a relationship. And you are. The first stages of dating are full of masculinity: you've got the girl, you take her out, impress her, ward off rival males... you are James Bond.

After a while, however, you'll find the relationship dominated by the more feminine emotions: what you feel, why you feel it, caring, sharing and quiet nights in... the alpha male days seem to give way to becoming her girlfriend in men's clothing.

But your masculinity is important. It's why she's with you in the first place. She might think she likes a boyfriend who she can treat like a gal pal, but without that male-female dynamic you're in trouble.
