Men are Direct...

There. You have the answer on how to understand the male point of view. Thank you for listening.

Oh, you want further details of how men view life? Some insight from their point of view? Okay, sure. Here are some nuggets:


When it comes to a female in a man’s life, he’s constantly in threat-assessment mode. When a woman simply wants a hug when she’s upset, men are looking how to "fix" what is wrong: eliminate threats first, care for emotions second.


A man speaks his mind and is driven by the facts of any given circumstance. Men always want to solve the puzzle. Or, as needed, eliminate the threat. (See above.)


It is incredibly addictive for men. Addictive to the level of combining all the great things in life together in one source and then multiplying that times a billion. Adrenaline draws out a level of mental clarity that can be described as playing a five-level chess game—while simultaneously solving large-scale world issues. All this happens with few spoken words.


Men think in a linear format, one topic at a time. Though when adrenaline flows, those topics fly by at the speed of light—he alters the course of thought, re-evaluates for threat assessment, and continues with the primary goal seamlessly—and no one will be aware the process is even happening.


Men are always seeking peace, even while their primal-side is vigilant for threats. A simple walk across a parking lot involves a scan for potential risks to his loved ones or himself. A walk out the front door begins with an assessment of any dangers from either nature or humanity. We believe vigilance helps ensure peace.


A man’s “kryptonite” is any tear shed by their woman. But you already knew that. Though maybe you should know the real reason. It scares them to their core—this truth cannot be overstated. Seeing tears flow short-circuits the male mind. All emotions flow at once. With all his will, a man wants to reach in and fix what is wrong.



Most men, and I say this as a near absolute, will lay down their lives for the ones they love. A rare few will do it for people they have never met. The depth of protection-minded mental programming from a distant evolutionary time is strong in the very few. That's one of the many reasons why law enforcement agencies and the special forces in military units only accept approximately one-percent of all those who show interest in their respective organizations. They need those who will give everything of themselves without delay of thought.


Men are not.


Thanks to Fresh Fiction for the opportunity to share my own male point of view. NO WEDDINGS is a book that I’ve co-authored with my wife, Kat Bastion, written in male point of view. We hope you enjoy the journey in the No Weddings series. We sure as hell did.
