Menopause Versus Manopause: Tips on how to survive both

Manopause can be just as difficult to navigate as menopause. As many women are aware, menopause can be a rollercoaster ride of hormone changes, mood swings and hot flashes. What about the manopause? Our male partners will experience their own midlife crises, with career anxiety, a dwindling sense of libido and a general feeling of malaise. As if they were experiencing the same intense meltdown as us. But fret not! You can deal with it by adding a little opulence and humor to your love.

Let’s be clear: men over 50 face enormous pressures. Men over 50 worry about their career and are concerned with a waning sexual desire.

It’s not just frustrating for them, it’s also confusing for us. We wonder why suddenly they seem distant, or why their gaze wanders. Understanding the root causes of their behavior can help you to understand them better. The menopause can affect us directly, but the manopause can also be disorienting.


Empathy and communication are essential to maintaining peace. Men need to release their aggression and reconnect with their primal urges. Recently, I took my partner out on a weekend trip with his friends. The men returned bruised and battered, stung with sea creatures but mentally rejuvenated. The experience was transformative. They were able to tap into their gladiator spirit, which is often suppressed by modern life.

The technology has softened men. Even the footballers of old, who were once gladiators, seem a little strange today. Encourage our partners to take part in physical activity can help combat this. It improves their mood and boosts testosterone. They can feel more alive and energetic by engaging in activities that test their endurance and strength.

We should indulge ourselves and take care of ourselves while they are away on their adventures. Even when menopause is trying to make me feel down, I enjoy an opulent life style because it makes me happy. The soul can be nourished by luxurious baths, fine wines and pampering. Take time to relax, recharge, and feel beautiful. Our positive energy is contagious when we are feeling good.

By balancing our empathy for others with self-care, we can avoid many misunderstandings. Understanding that the distant behavior of our partners may be a result of their inner struggles can help us approach the situation with compassion instead. Discussions of these issues without blaming anyone can create a supportive atmosphere.


Humor can also be an excellent tool for reducing tension.

When my partner complains about his aches, I make a joke about how we are turning into an old couple of geezers. It brightens our mood to laugh together. Sharing humor strengthens bonds and makes the difficult times easier to bear.

It’s also important to find solutions together. Encourage your partner, if needed, to seek medical advice. Hormone therapy can be beneficial to men as well. Talking about dietary changes, supplementation, and exercise can lead to improvement.

When we work together on these issues, we foster unity and mutual support.

It doesn’t need to be a fight between menopause and manopause. We can all navigate midlife together with humor, empathy and shared experiences. Understanding that our partners may be struggling with their own anger issues or hormonal imbalances makes it easier to deal.

Final thoughts: embrace the journey in opulence. Enjoy luxuries to make you feel good and encourage your partner’s adventurous side. Remember to laugh together, support one another, and that this will pass. With love, humor and empathy we can overcome the overwhelming feelings of menopause and/or manopause.

Podcast #999: The Epic Adventures of America’s Forgotten Mountain Man

listen apple podcasts 15

Many famous frontiersmen and explorers emerged during America’s period of exploration and expansion. Today, names like Daniel Boone and Kit Carson remain household names.

Jedediah SMITH is a name you may not be familiar with, but one that should. Smith was a mountain man, explorer, hunter, trapper and writer. He also was the first U.S. citizen to cross the Mojave Desert and Sierra Nevada. Smith survived three Native American attacks and one grizzly mauling. His explorations were used by those who came after him, and the South Pass became the main route for pioneers to cross the Continental Divide.

Bob Drury’s guest uses the oft forgotten Smith to guide us through an often forgotten period of American history. Bob Drury paints an image of a turbulent American landscape where trappers and Native Americans clashed and fought in the early years of the 19th Century. We talk about how the Lewis and Clark Expedition sparked a desire for adventure in young men. How the humble beaver was instrumental in the settlement of the Western frontier. And how the horse changed warfare among Native American tribes. Bob shares how Jed Smith’s life intersected with these historical trends, and the heroic exploits he and his fellow mountain men had while exploring and mapping America’s West.

Sunday Firesides: In Praise of Little Platoons

Have you ever been in an hotel room with your family, feeling like no one can find you, and hoping no one will ever do so, and thought: “This is everything I need”?

In recent decades, there has been a lot of lamentation about the dissolution and separation of extended families — that people are no longer living in close proximity with their grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins etc. It is a great loss. In wailing about this loss, we may lose sight of how brilliant the nuclear family is. It is partly because of the atomic family’s unique luminescence that we are not more aggressive in preserving a larger familial network. The atomic family does not suffer from poverty, even though the extended family contributes to its wealth.

The smallest units in society are pairs of parents and their children. Edmund Burke called them “little platoons.”

How incredibly useful these little troops are.

When the sh*t comes out (like during a pandemic, for example), the atomic unit can become a self-sustaining, mobile unit that is ready to navigate.

The atomic family is independent and idiosyncratic. When society’s ways appear stale and dumb, or wrong-headed, it can cultivate a distinctive culture that pits us against the world.

When the trenches become weary and life becomes a struggle, the atomic families can be the center of the family.

When the world is cold and indifferent the atomic family provides a place of comfort and affection.

Salute these merry bands, my fellow compatriots!

Salute these rogue battle buddies.

These crews are the best. They hold it together even when things fall apart.

All hail our little platoons.

The original article can be found here: Pitti uomo, What men are wearing

Pitti Uomo is a great event! This men’s fashion event in Florence is a delight for anyone who loves opulence and the finer things. Imagine yourself walking down the streets of Florence surrounded by impeccably-dressed gentlemen who each showcase their individual style with confidence. It’s not just a tradeshow; it’s an exciting celebration of menswear, with a sartorial masterpiece at every turn.


Let’s start with the atmosphere. Florence’s rich history and beautiful architecture make it the ideal backdrop for this prestigious event. Men from Europe and beyond turn the streets of Florence into their own personal runway. Style enthusiasts are eager to be seen and heard. The city buzzes.

Italian men are known for their impeccable fashion sense. They have an elegance that is simply captivating. Imagine a tailored suit in a luxurious fabric, crisp shirts and polished shoes. The look is timeless and contemporary, combining classic styles with modern twists. This is a masterclass on balancing innovation and tradition, and it is nothing short of inspirational.

European Men

European men have a wide variety of styles. There’s so much to admire, from the French understated elegance to the German bold and experimental styles. You might be able to spot a dapper Englishman in a three-piece suit and then a Scandinavian style icon wearing a monochromatic, minimalist outfit that is cool.

Pitti Uomo is not only about the clothes, but also the confidence in which they are worn.

They don’t hesitate to make a bold statement and do so with an infectious sense of passion and joy. Each look tells a different story as they experiment with patterns, colors and accessories. Fashion is a way to express yourself, and that’s a fascinating thing to see.

The exquisite details of these outfits are stunning. Pocket squares with vibrant colors, ties in intricate patterns and miniature cufflinks are all examples of exquisite details. These small details may seem insignificant, but they add a touch of personality and sophistication to any ensemble. These gentlemen are a great reminder that style is all in the details.


Of course, footwear deserves special mention. Italian leather shoes have a long history, and Pitti Uomo is a great place to see them in their full glory. The craftsmanship of the classic oxfords and modern loafers is flawless, with styles to suit every taste. It’s amazing how well-made the footwear is. Each pair compliments an outfit beautifully.

Let’s inject some humor into this fashion fest. You can laugh at the outrageousness of some outfits. Imagine seeing a man in a bright, pink suit and matching shoes, walking down the street like he owned it. Yes, it’s a bit over the top, but part of its charm. Pitti Uomo pushes fashion boundaries, sometimes even to the point where they are absurd. It’s done with a fun, creative and refreshing sense of humor.
