    It should be well known that I have gripes about this aspect of me. Examples

    Feel like

    -too skinny?
    -lacking in job of decent social standing
    -talk about feelings too much
    -overly sensitive esp. To banter
    -people-pleaser/pushover
    -not assertive enough
    -weak/low stress tolerance
    -don't handle problems very well?
    -don't drink
    -uncertain of sexuality
    -do very little in the way of LAD activity
    -overly paranoid to nearly clinical degree
    -depressing?

    I could go on.

    well I am looking for tips on how guys handled this beyond the flippant and vague 'man up' as it has ruined my ability to interact with my peers especially girls.

    Note: most of these are not feminine per se, which would not be bad, but anti masculine which is very bad at my age.

    thank youu
