Is There Such Thing as a Soulmate?

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! In today’s article, we’re going to be talking about a question that’s been floating around romantic circles seemingly since the beginning: is there such thing as a soulmate? One person that you’re meant to be with forever? This idea has certainly become quite pervasive thanks to old fairy tales, the most timeless love stories, and popular media today largely reinforcing the ideas of those stories. While it can certainly be a difficult question to answer, especially considering just the sheer number of people in this world, I’m hoping I can provide a clear answer or explanation. So without any further delay, let’s get started!

The Gentleman’s Guide to Brewing Coffee

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So, today’s article is going to be more or less a follow-up to this one that I put up a few weeks ago. In it, I talked about five (5) coffee companies that deserve more support, so in today’s article, as the title may suggest, I’m going to talk about different ways to get that coffee ready to drink after purchasing it. More specifically, I’ll be going over five (5) different coffee-brewing methods, how each method is performed, and the pros and cons of each method so that you young gents reading can get an idea of how you would like to make that ideal cup of coffee. So without any further delay, let’s get started!

Lessons in Manliness from the Cowboys

Howdy gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So, despite all the myths about cowboys that have propped up over the decades thanks mostly to Hollywood, there’s still a multitude of things that the cowboys of the frontier can teach young gentlemen of today. It was far from an easy or idyllic living, but the harsh reality that the cowboy life entailed came with quite a few life lessons that any man can take to heart. So without any further ado, let’s get started!

4 Historical Figures that All Gentlemen Should Look up To

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! In today’s article, we’re going to take a look at major historical figures that set standards of masculinity, stoicism, chivalry, or any combination of those things and talk about why young gentlemen everywhere should look up to them. There’s certainly no shortage of such figures throughout history, but since we only have so much time, I’ll just keep it limited to four (4). There’s not really much else that needs to be said as far as the intro is concerned, so let’s go ahead and get started!

5 (or 6) U.S. National Parks that Everyone Should Visit

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So, in the United States, our nation’s government is rife with political gridlock, corruption, and gross overspending. Of course, this really isn’t news to anybody, even to those who live outside the U.S. However, in the words of Parks and Recreation‘s Ron Swanson, “…the National Park Service is the only branch of government worth a damn”, and I tend to agree with that. The National Park Service’s sole mission is to preserve our nation’s natural environments and historical landmarks, as well give citizens and non-citizens alike a chance to appreciate the beauty, grandeur, and sometimes danger of God’s creation. So in honor of that, I’m going to list five (technically six) National Parks that everyone needs to visit at least once in their lives. Of course, I’d like this entry to be closer to 423 entries long, but I only have so much time to write. So without any further delay, let’s get started!
