What we're about
This is a No More Mr. Nice Guy support group based on the works for Dr. Robert Glover the leading authority on the subject. We welcome men from all walks of life and provide a safe space for men to start learning to be their authentic self. Having read the book is not important to join the group, but if the description below chimes with you, and you wish to make necessary life changes, join our group.
If are not familiar with the above-mentioned body of work I would recommend starting with the free audiobook from audible at https://amzn.to/2NIGrtU and get familiar with the core concepts discussed in our group meetings.
Nice Guys have been conditioned to believe that if they are "good" and do everything "right", they will be loved, get their needs met, and have a smooth life. Sound too good to be true? It is. This belief is a myth, which only leaves Nice Guys feeling frustrated, lonely, and powerless.
There is nothing wrong with being nice. But the Nice Guy does it to seek approval and avoid rejection. He's a people-pleaser. He constantly sets his own needs and wants aside, and pretends to be something he's not, in order to make other people happy. Suppressing his authenticity does not work for long. The Nice Guy eventually blows up in rage, passive-aggressive behavior, or compulsive sexual acting out. Nice Guys do not feel that it's safe to be exactly who they are and therefore are secretive, manipulative, and very unhappy.
We are a group of men who want to start taking control of ourselves and our lives. We have seen that we cannot do it alone. The group aims to provide a safe space for men to have difficult conversations without fear of judgment.
We pledge to help, support, and encourage one another in our journey to become Integrated Males. We strive to:
• Stop seeking the approval of others.
• Learn effective ways to get our needs met.
• Feel more powerful and confident.
• Create the kind of intimate relationships we really want.
• Learn to express our feelings and emotions.
• Have a fulfilling and exciting sex life.
• Embrace our masculinity and have meaningful relationships with other men.
• Live up to our potential and become truly creative and productive.
• Accept ourselves just as we are.
• Live with total integrity.
If these are things you want in your life, please join us! Any adult (21+) male is welcome, regardless of relationship status, position in life, religious beliefs, or sexual orientation. We strive to make our meetings safe for all.
Our support/discussion group meetings are held every Wednesday, are free of charge, and last about 2 hours. We also do plenty of other manly activities to give you a chance to bond with our group of safe men.
Even though we take the principal themes for our meetings from the book "No More Mr. Nice Guy", by Dr. Robert Glover ( http://www.nomoremrniceguy.com ), we also use other inspirational books and materials to enhance our discussions. Join us and start getting what you want in Life, love, and relationships!
