Can meaningful relationships survive a world of instant gratification?
While on his computer, Victor Hastings admires the provocative pictures of the girl he’s dating. Meanwhile, she’s posting more and more on Facebook and all the social sites. Now, everyone in his cramped fraternity is competing for her and it seems the fraternity itself may become obsolete by this strange, new thing people are beginning to call ‘social media.’ What kind of love is this?
…the wired kind.

Modern Manhood—it’s a subject that needs to be addressed in earnest by someone, I suppose, eventually…
What’s it mean to be a man in times when most employment consists of clicking a mouse and making a PowerPoint? (Nobody really knows anymore). Trust me. I’ve looked. I’ve read. I’ve asked around the usual places.
There are people who can give a biblical interpretation; there are people who can give a biological interpretation; there are people who can give an interpretation based upon historical inequality. But if you’ve ever asked yourself, “Am I there yet? Is this it?” or “Wasn’t there supposed to be a boom—some luminous flash of light…” chances are you live in the United States, are between 18 and 40, and male.
Ah, the hopeless, pathetic, forgotten male—is he a relic, an anachronism, a vestigial bundle or excessive upper-body strength no longer needed in an era of unmanned attack drones, seven adjective lattes and dual income families? Was Beyonce right? Do girls run the world? To answer all these questions and more, we must do what men do best: Get our bearings. Not just in space—but in time.
“To simply say thought-provoking would be an understatement. It will make you take a deeper look into the lives of the people around you, as well as your own.” — Julie Ordon, Reading by the Beach
