  1. Looks like Brock is both a great player and a great human being.
  2. There's a lot that has been said in this thread that I completely agree with. Though there are a couple of things that I'd like to express, mostly what I've noticed about women: Women aren't necessarily looking for a man who has tons of money/success. That being said, a lot of women who are seeking long-term relationships look for a guy who they feel can provide for them. Security (whether it's financial, emotional, or physical) is key for them. As many have mentioned, being an introvert is not a bad thing. You find you energize by being alone. However, it's important to increase your circle of friends. There are lots around Vanocuver: meetup groups, activity clubs, book clubs, video game clubs... etc. I joined a few in my single days. You can find lots of women in these clubs. I do not agree with people telling you to move out of your house. In today's economy, more and more individuals are living at home and it has become more widely acceptable in our society and our generation. The reality is that renting is brutally expensive, as is buying a place. I don't think women are necessarily seeking a guy who already has a place, but somebody who at least has the goal/vision of doing so eventually. It's important to have a vision and goals for yourself. Women actually find this very attractive and it shows that you are a leader, motivated, and hard working. For a woman, this makes them feel secure (see point 1) As shallow as it sounds, women are drawn to a man who has style - it makes him look confident (something that women are attracted to). Hair, clothing, shoes... This doesn't mean that you need to spend hundreds of dollars. I shop at H&M, Walmart, even ebay or amazon. It's a matter of finding out what's in style and finding it cheap! You don't need the name brands. Just as long as it looks nice. A girl who is seeking a guy solely for the brands he wears is not a woman you want to date. Try new things out of your comfort zone. That can help you gain confidence in yourself and eventually you will start to have that aura. Women are attracted to a guy who is confident (but not chauvinistic) I say these things purely out of my dating years and now as a married man, though not everybody may agree (which is okay). Good luck!
  3. For those of you who care, this is a satire article. It's not real.
  4. **This is a satire piece and that it should not be taken seriously. Nonetheless, considering the feedback it originally got from Canadians, I do feel like it does raise an interesting topic about our society and how we treat young individuals** Dear generation of today: Don't fall into the trap of allowing society to pamper you so that you can feel "good about yourself". Too often today I see students and young people being "babied". For some reason, there is a deep fear in today's society that if a child/student goes through a "negative" experience, such as failing a course, losing a game, or not achieving something they are striving for, that child could potentially suffer from severe stress or emotional and psychological trauma for the rest of their life. We see this in schools, in the workplace, and in the home. As an educator, I find this deeply troubling. It has bred a society of entitlement where young people feel they deserve something that they haven't worked for. Many teachers or employers today are forced to cater to lazy students/workers who take advantage of this recent cultural norm. Moreover, it has also created a society where young people need constant help, encouragement and positive feedback in order to even function in school, work or life. Don't misunderstand me. I am not saying that individual students who need extra support or emotional encouragement should not receive it at all. There are many young people today who come with emotional, physical, or mental issues (possibly from past experiences) that may need special assistance. Students all learn differently and teachers must do their very best to support the students they have. However, there is a fine line between providing the necessary support and pampering the child. I believe in today's culture, we are overdoing it. If we constantly cater to young people and allow them to easily get by in education, sports, and life without any experience of failing, and if we continue, as a culture, to preach the idea that they can "do anything they put their mind to", then we're setting them up for failure. What happens when that young individual becomes an adult and fails in their job, their marriage, or their relationships? We pray that this never happens to them, but what if it does? How will that young person react to failure if they've been pampered their whole life and told that they can do anything they put their mind to? As adults we know the reality of life: we will, at some point, experience failure in something, no matter how hard we try. To conclude, I believe as a society we need to be cautious in how we treat our young people. We cannot continue to create a culture of entitlement, laziness, and "constant success" for them. If we allow them to experience failures early in life, with the right amount of support, it will only make them stronger for when they do go through the real hardships of life: adult life.
