Not hiding... but becoming an endangered species. The 21st century is marked by a lot of guys who have lost what it is to be a real man. The guy who handles his responsibilities, takes care of his friends and families, respects and adores women, has goals and a drive, etc.
Lack of male role-models, too much media influence, dysfunctional families, etc. are leading to more and more of these "adult boys" and less "real men."
I can only advise you to keep looking as I continue my soul-searching on trying to make a "real man" out of myself.
