Quote from: Penelope on March 18, 2013, 11:13:38 PMCan we start a conversation about the seeming confidence dichotomy in modern males? From my experiences as a college student in the recent past, I've discovered that young men generally fall into two major categories: 1. The overly confident jerk who thinks that he can do no wrong, or 2. the otherwise sweet-natured guy who totally lacks confidence in himself, such that it renders him socially paralyzed. Has anyone else noticed a similar trend?My recommendation for Catholic young men would be to avoid this dichotomy.

QuoteA large (note I said 'large' and not 'only') reason for women being drawn to over-confident, jerk, frat types is because this all that is left in terms of men with any confidence whatsoever. It's the cocky jerk or the needy effeminate.
