We’ve had many of our readers wonder about THE GUYS. Well today we’d like to answer some of your questions. So here goes:
You: Is it just one guy or are there a bunch of guys?
Us: The site was started by Sai, aka “One of the Guys” as a dating website writing descriptions for online profiles, but it’s morphed into much more. (Yes, we still do that.) But now we have five other guys contributing to various parts of our site, including the blog, podcast and creative team.
You: So then why the singular Guy’s Perspective.
Us: Guy is a singular term. Basically we are presenting the perspective of the guy, or a guy. How does a guy think? What does he do? What motivates him? What is his next move? Since we’re all guys, we feel we have a pretty good handle on this. Also, The Guy’s Perspective just looks better than The Guys’ Perspective.
You: How old are you guys?
Us: Old enough to know that we don’t know everything. But seriously, most of us are in our thirties and forties. However, we certainly can remember our teens and twenties. Those kinds of memories don’t fade; good and bad!
You: What makes you qualified to talk about relationships?
Us: We’ve gained a lot of insight from our own dating experiences, plus marriage and fatherhood. However, we don’t necessarily have more qualifications than anyone else, just that we’re able to bounce ideas off each other and really discuss all topics thoroughly.
You: What are you guys into besides talking about relationships?
Us: We’re into everything and anything. Here are some interesting tidbits about us.
These are from various guys.
-I love Terry Gilliam movies.
-I possibly make the world’s finest apple crisp.
-I run a beverage company by day.
-I’ve played the piano at Yoshi’s Jazz Club.
-I hate every one of the 45 minutes on the elliptical trainer.
-I once wanted to travel around the country playing pick up basketball.
-I wore my baseball uniform every day to first grade.
-The songs most played songs on my ipod are: “Going in the right direction” by Robert Randolph. “Local Hero” by Mark Knopfler. “Pride and Joy” by Stevie Ray Vaughn.
-Favorite movies of ours: “Shawshank Redemption” “Pulp Fiction” “Bourne Identity” “Forrest Gump” “Slumdog Millionaire.” Actually the list could go on and on.
-I own a mandolin.
-I am searching for a Jesus shaped spirituality.
-I owned a standard poodle as a kid. She famously jumped out of the second floor window and survived.
-I climbed El Capitan, and slept five nights gaming from a hammock on the wall. (He’s insane!)
-We have 12 kids between us. No grandchildren.
You: Thanks for clearing some things up for us. Can we keep asking you questions as we think of them?
Us: Sure. Ask away. We won’t promise that we’ll answer all of them, but we’ll do our best.
You: Last question. Are you really as nice as you try to portray here?
Us: Yikes. Do you mean, are we really that square? Or are you asking if we’re hiding something?
Us: Let’s put it this way, none of us have criminal records, or anything like that. Jeez! And as far as being square, no question would shock us. We’re not as shy as we seem, and we like talking about everything, even sex. Yeah, we said it. Yes, there’s a little bad boy in all of us.
Any more questions? Ask away! (We’re not promising, but we’ll do our best.)
