Relationships between men are much different than relationships between women. It’s true that men don’t need to tell the tiniest details of every story. Men just want the big picture. They just want to cut to the chase. That doesn’t mean that they are not good at friendships; it just means they do it differently.
Men enjoy entertainment that helps them bond with each other. For them, it’s less about the activity that they are actually doing and more about actually socializing. Jeering and teasing are all in good fun and bragging rights count. Most men can take it, just as well as thy dish it out.
This blog is for men who want to reconnect with their buddies and are looking for new ways to strengthen bonds with male friends that move past the beer and poker night at someone’s house. If you’re looking for some new ways to spend time with the guys, you’ll definitely want to check out the entertainment ideas on this blog.
Entertaining Man Cave Style
Go camping taking nothing but your supplies and a hammock. Have a contest to see who can hang the hammock the best or the fastest. Sleep under the stars and really enjoy it.
A lot of men enjoy working out, but they don’t always do it together. One idea is to join the same gym and make plans to work out on the same day at the same time. Meet up on some hiking trails and do some running together. Check out some of the charity runs and raise some money for your favorite charity at the same time. Get down and dirty with a color run or a mud run.
Plan a fishing trip—a big fishing trip like deep sea fishing. Try some new watersports together like parasailing or spend the day tubing. If you want to do something less big, how about challenging yourselves to build a boat from nothing but cardboard and duct tape and sail it around a short course on a local lake. The boat that sinks buys the drinks. Dry off on the beach and grill up some meat. Break out bags of chips and do your favorite thing—socialize.
Guys like to fix things. Why not fix them together? Figure out who has a project that needs to be done at their home. Set a weekend to get it done. Round up the guys, gather up the tools, start early, and work late. Take a break midday and go out and shoot some hoops.
Every once in a while, guys like to be pampered too. Their feet may swell and ache and are covered with callouses. Set up a day for the men to go to the spa to get a pedicure, complete with leg massage. Add on a manicure and get rid of the dirt under your fingernails. Schedule an appointment to soften tough facial skin with a professional facial. Maybe you’ll go the whole gamut and opt for a full body massage. There is just one rule for the spa day. Relax!
This blog is intended for guys who are looking for some ideas to spend some quality time socializing together. It’s a space where you can think outside watching a sporting event on television or playing some video games.
This blog has the best ideas on how to take a trip, have an adventure, and enjoy the great outdoors.
