Matt Walsh: 5 things every guy must do in order to become a man

Text: Here's my podcast for this week. One of the most common complaints you hear from women is that they always seem to end up in relationships with immature boys masquerading as men. Men have a similar complaint about women, although it's not as socially acceptable to say that out loud. Of course, these days, you may even run into boys masquerading as girls and girls masquerading as boys and boys masquerading as iguanas and girls masquerading as cantaloupes. You never know what you'll get out there. The only combination you know you'll have trouble tracking down is a grown man who acts like a grown man or a grown woman who acts like a grown woman.

I decided to record this episode to help those in my generation (or any generation) who are still single and trying desperately to sift through the societal debris in hopes of finding a partner who isn't emotionally stunted or full blown insane. I don't envy you. I know the task seems impossible. But it's not impossible. Not completely, anyway. There are mature and well adjusted people out there, you just have to know what you're looking for. To that end, I offer this list of 5 things every man should have done or be doing before he can be considered a grown man, and before a grown woman should really consider entering into a serious relationship with him. If you are a woman and you're currently dating a man who can't pass this test, you should probably consider going your separate ways before it's too late.

I don't want to give away the entire content of my podcast, but I'll tell you the five things and then you'll have to listen to hear me explain them:

1) Hold a steady job.

2) Pay his own bills.

3) Learn how to make sacrifices.

4) Support himself.

5) Develop interests outside of video games and TV.

There are many men out there who've never done any of these, which means they are not really men yet.
