The pedestal we put women on only exists in our heads.
Hey, it's David.
Let me tell you a little story - there's a good moral to this story...
A guy called a woman and asked her out. The guy was nervous, was scared; he was shy.
"So we're set for tomorrow night?"
"Umm, yeah," she replied.
Then, tomorrow night came. The guy agonized over the date the entire day.
How should he act? What shall he wear? Did he have enough money? Would he be fun enough?"
But the poor guy realized he was wasting his time worrying for there was no date. He got stood up.
Obviously, there HAD to be a reason. Perhaps something awful happened. Perhaps her car didn't start. Perhaps some incredible thing occurred in her life AT THAT TIME that kept apart the two star crossed lovers!
So he tried again. "Did we miscommunicate?" "Oh, umm...Yeah."
"You still want to go out?"
"Let's go out on this and this day. OK?"
That day comes. The guy gets stood up yet again.
Is it true that there are no marriageable men?
*Warning* Explicit language.
(Brian was out of hand tonight. If you have children, elderly, small animals or sensitivities of any kind, don't play this one! Consider yourself warned...)
1:20 - Comic books, action figures. Addiction. David and Brian confess their lifelong habits and hobbies.
3:00 - Dork culture - when it's your identity. Nerd culture is in vogue. Are nerdy men, in fact, men?
5:00 - Money spent on yourself. The power of a decision and commitment.
7:50 - "Hot Heathers" - does the wife feel like he's not taking care of business at home? Is she raising another child?
9:00 - Cautionary tale - don't be like Bradley. Don't let your wife take care of business that YOU should be taking care of.
11:00 - Napoleon Hill - the mystery of sex transmutation. Man's greatest desire is to please woman. Men are being robbed of this key motivation today.
13:00 - Article - "The future of men and...
Remember how she used to want to jump your bones for no reason at all?
Hey, it's David.
I want to explain something critically important to you in as few words as possible...
...Short, sweet, and directly to the point.
It's an unconscious habit that negatively influences EVERY MAN'S sexual energy, attractiveness and, therefore, the quality of his sex life...
What's the trait she can smell at the molecular level every time you do it?
It's the constant churning of a hidden agenda to convince, persuade, manipulate, or BARGAIN your way into her pants.
Let me make this really clear.
She can smell the following things like a wet dog on her pillow:
- Any attempt to do something with an expectation you should get a sexual reward in return.
- Any unspoken sense of entitlement to her body and genitalia.
- Any implication that you're keeping score and she owes you something.
- Any feeling that you're tricking her into a secret contract in which the payoff is you getting...
Each year in America alone, nearly 1 million marriages end in divorce.
Hey, it's David.
That number is INSANE.
That would be as if all the citizens of Houston, Texas were divorced (each divorce leaves two people).
It's a national disaster. And I can tell you the divorce rates are similar in every other first world country.
Today I have an outstanding guest article for you from a good friend and associate of mine, Lee H. Baucom, Ph.D.
He's a renowned marriage counselor, and he's going to hit you with some hard truth.
Can your marriage be saved? If I could answer that, I would be a wealthy man. I can tell you that if your marriage is in trouble and you do nothing, the outcome is guaranteed. If you do something, there is a much better chance that your marriage will be saved.
And I can tell you, in four simple steps what you can do to save your marriage. You can start right now. But you must understand that I said "simple." That is not...
How do you trust someone you don't trust?
Hey, it's David.
Have you ever heard these phrases about TRUST?
"In God We Trust...all others must bring cash."
"I don't trust anyone unless they EARN IT!"
"I trusted you, and then you broke my heart!"
When it comes to relationships, we must decide if trust is a starting point or an end result.
Is trust something you can give even when you're not sure it's "deserved"?
Bren? Brown quotes Charles Feltman, author of "The Thin Book of Trust," who describes trust as "choosing to risk making something you value vulnerable to another person's actions." Meanwhile, distrust is deciding that "what is important to me is not safe with this person in this situation (or any situation)."
I believe trust is required for CONNECTION.
Every man in The Alpha Shift wants more connection, but he often thinks, speaks, and acts from a place of distrust. Distrust comes from fear of outcome and produces unspeakable anxiety and monkey chatter....

Welcome to the latest episode of The Alpha Shift!
Featuring David Krueger and Don Kowalewski.
David and Don met 28 years ago pledging a fraternity at Michigan State University.
This episode is two men the same age who have known each other their entire adult lives.
...Yet their lives took interesting and different courses.
Your humble host David had fun and calamity in his personal life, as you all know.
Don married his college sweetheart and has been married 22 years. He has three beautiful kids, three cars, a crushing mortgage, and a dog he doesn't even like.
In this episode the hosts realize that the grass is not always greener on the other side.
Show highlights include:
* Life paths are different but one is not necessarily wrong.
* Sometimes a man finds the right compatible girl and gets lucky.
* A woman is attracted to who you are when you meet her. Too often we become someone else - someone who hides in the basement and stops courting her.

"She spends so much time in her room, not engaging with me or the kids, how can I help her to reconnect with us?"
Hey, it's David.
It's a common issue when a relationship is under pressure, maybe there's a tension or a tentativeness that's crept into your connection and suddenly all those thoughts that strike fear into your heart and put a knot in your gut start racing through your brain. Thoughts like:
Why is she upset with me?
Is she planning to leave me?
Does she find me attractive anymore?
Is there someone else?
What if she doesn't love me anymore?
What if this means the relationship will end?
How would this affect the kids?
What will my friends and family think?
What if I can't save this relationship?
It's at this point that we, as men, engage everything we've learned and bring it to this, the most important part of our life.
We've never encountered a problem that we couldn't fix before so with the right tools and application, the right focus and...

Featuring David Krueger and Brian Krueger.
Welcome to Alpha Shift. It is a movement...
In this inaugural edition of The Alpha Shift Podcast, David and his brother (from the same mother) discuss taking full responsibility for our lives, how we are on the side of women, and what we think has gone wrong for men (and women) in these interesting times we live in.
* The Elusive American Husband. Where have all the good men gone? Changing gender norms are leaving men adrift and women lonely and alone. The new rules aren't working.
* Hasbro Toy Company goes full on "woke" with the introduction of Ms. Monopoly. The game is actually extremely insulting to girls as it gives them an unfair (and unnecessary advantage over boys). Also sends message to young boys that they are less important. WTF?
