About “the Regular Guy…”

Who is the Regular Guy?  The Regular Guy is what some people might call “A Regular Joe”. This probably was meant to imply “average” or “everyday” kind of guy. So I ask again, “Who is the Regular Guy?” I think the Regular Guy exists in all boys, teens, men, and older men. We all start out the same way. Well I guess most of us. I can’t speak for all men, but I can speak from my experience as a man.  What I have learned over the years is that we are all pretty much the same. Most men think the same way about certain things at any age. From 13, 28, 40, 65 or 78 our thoughts and likes pretty much stay constant.  We don’t change much as we age, we just accept that things around us change, and we have to go along with it.

The Regular Boy likes Toys. The Regular Teen likes Girls. The Regular Man likes Sports. The Regular Guy likes them all, from the first time we notice a girl, or a fast car or become a rabib sports fan to the time we die. It doesn’t change. The Regular Guy is told how he should be from the first words we hear ( probably “NO”) to the time we pass on (plan for the end).Our mothers try to mold us into caring, loving, sensitive young men to become good husbands and fathers. Then Corporate America tries to mold us into something we should be. You see, the Regular Guy loves his family. Probably if he is lucky, has one solid, REAL  friend. The Regular Guy doesn’t buy $1000 watches or suits. He can’t spell, let alone afford, a Lamborgini or Ferrari. GQ magazine doesn’t make much sense to us, because it all seems like it happens on another world. Levi’s, Mustangs  and Hamburgers, now that’s what the Regular Guy is about. Simple pleasures that are well within our reach.

What I am trying to say is that there are so many of us who feel the same. Who experience things as men that we sometimes can’t explain. Like for instance, our sex drive. Why is it that we eat, breathe and think about sex ALL DAY LONG?  Some women think of us as dogs or pigs because sex is always running through our minds. This is probably because they don’t experience such thoughts as often as we do. I like to refer to this as the “Extra Chip ” we received at birth ( more on this at a later date). They can’t possibly  understand why we are this way, no more than we can understand having a period once a month.

For this and so many other reasons, I plan to share some ideas, insights, opinions, suggestions, thoughts etc… for whoever cares to listen. This is my way of dealing with the everyday things that happen to me in my life as a man, that sometimes only another Regular Guy can understand. So feel free to read and comment, add an opinion or story of your own. I look forward to hearing from all the other Regular Guys out there……
