In summary, we want our boys to be supermen: intelligent, able to handle all situations with ease, willing to work hard and accomplish Herculean tasks. In order to be and do those things, our men will sacrifice their relationships and not have as much time as their women would like them to have to share with them. Our men will juggle their loved ones with their numerous other responsibilities and sacrifice sleep and their health in the process.
