Don't try to make him something else... something boring.

"A Battle to fight. An Adventure to live. A Beauty to rescue. This is what a man longs for. This is what makes him come alive. Look at the films men love. For that matter, look at the dreams of little boys, the games they play. There is something fierce, passionate, and wild in the heart of every man. Simply look at the dreams and desires written in the heart of every boy: To be a hero, to be a warrior, to live a life of adventure and risk." - John Eldredge

Guys were built for adventure, for the wilderness, for strength, to fight, to win, to be fierce. Rules Girls would NEVER emasculate them by trying to "tame" them or make them "safe" or to even worse, have them abandon their desires. ICK. Who wants a "safe" (aka boring) man. Not me, not this Rules Girl. I want one like this...

or like this...

or this...

or this...

ok well... you know what I mean.

As C.S. Lewis said, "Men aren't meant to be safe, they are meant to be good".

A man can still be good, and be adventurous. Aren't the wild and adventurous kind more attractive anyway? Isn't a man full of life, and excitement far more easy to be fascinated by than one that sits in front of the TV and wishes he COULD be a man? (watching TV isn't horrible of course, but you know what I'm saying... nobody likes a bore)

Men are men, and need to do what it takes to find and keep their masculinity. They will ride the horse, fight the bad guy, throw rocks, catch fish, play football and win the girl... because that's what they were made to do.

As a Rules Girl don't try to tame him or make him something else... something boring. Don't ask that he stop wanting to take adventures or try to make him like the things you like. What draws you to him is the man he is. So let him BE THE MAN. Let him do the things he likes to do because it gives you the time to do the things that YOU like to do.

Let him be a man, and encourage him to do so. We could use a few more real men around anyway...

oh yea... and the great thing about a masculine man... is that he LOVES the ladies :) I mean think James Bond, Indiana Jones, John Wayne... ay curumba...
