MENZ in the Reader’s Digest
The March 2006 New Zealand Reader’s Digest has an article titled ‘Big Boys Don’t Cry’, which has a list of resources that includes this web site!
It says (not very accurately):
Lots of links and an online forum. Runs support meetings in Auckland.
But hey, who’s complaining? Welcome to any new readers who arrive by way of the Digest!
The article is worth reading, and male-friendly:
Although emotions have long been considered a female trademark, men report feelings as often as woman, and describe their experiences of emotion similarly. In an analysis of the emotional intelligence of 500,000 adults, men rated just as high in emotional awareness. In studies of married couples, husbands proved as attuned to their mate’s stress levels as wives – and just as capable of offering support.
A second article, ‘I love you mate’, explores the relationships men have with each other:
“Men often know one another’s deepest feelings by a look or a nod, not by talking.”
