I read on one of the major search engines about a new social media trend called “Man Crush Monday.”

Every Monday, people post about their favorite man crush. When I read it, I thought to myself, “What is wrong with our society?”

Man crush was one of the first things Chris Carter and other guys would use as a joke on their radio shows and ESPN. They made jokes about having man crushes and how they wanted to be the ultimate man, what the ultimate man is and that kind of thing.

It seems like social media has taken this idea too far.

I took a read of what people were posting and it troubled me. We’re crushing on people we don’t even know. For me, that’s the issue.

For years, women have been so fascinated with celebrity relationships. They’re so into reality shows about relationships and other people’s troubles.

We fantasize about other people’s lives and wish we could have a life like that because we find ours so boring.

I think we need to change the way we look at things. We need to change the way we think about things. Instead of having a man crush (which is really juvenile), why don’t you start crushing on yourself?

“Take the necessary steps so you

can be the man people crush on.”

Start making your life exciting.

Imagine you are the man everybody’s putting up on one of these top search engines. Imagine people will be talking about you. What would they say about you?

If your life is boring and dull, you’re not meeting enough women and you’re not having fun on the weekend, then nobody’s going to crush on you.

How do you make changes so you can become the most popular kid on the block?

It doesn’t matter how old we are. We still seem to want to be the most popular person in town. When we were in grammar school, we always wanted to hang out with the guys who were good at sports.

In high school, we gravitated to the guys who could talk to women. In college, we still gravitated to the guys who could talk to women. As adults, it’s still exactly the same!

Why don’t you start becoming that guy?

What you need to do right now is pretend you’re on this major search engine and write an article about how amazing you are. If it’s not true, then take the necessary steps so you can be the man people crush on!
