Why Men Die Earlier Than Women

It’s a well documented fact that Men die earlier than women but why? What is it that causes men to wear out faster than their partners do? And what’s the solution?

The Reason Men Die Earlier Than Women May Surprise You

I always thought it was because women typically aren’t magnetized by risk, adventure and dangerous hobbies. (as in, “Hey, hold my beer and watch this!”)

And while those are contributing factors, I believe the REAL reason we die off before women is because of the chronic stress and anxiety levels caused by isolation and loneliness.

Recently I was with my best buddy from high school and college. I took a break in my old Chesapeake Bay stomping grounds around the town of St. Michaels on the eastern shore.

My friend, John, is one of those guys you can drink a beer with and talk about the next 20 years. He’s the kind of friend who is curious and listens. He asks good questions. He respects me and encourages me and I do the same for him.

This is also true of my long-time friend, Gerry, in Colorado. It’s true of Dan Dore and Tim Wade – my close friends and business colleagues. 

I know I can say, “I love you man!” to all of the men in our community who have engaged with me in consistent, authentic and loving ways.

My friend, John, has a beautiful VRBO home on the water and he says ALL of his groups who comes as friend ARE WOMEN!

That’s right.

There are ZERO groups of men who come as friends.

A Healthy, Confident Man Has Plenty Of Great Male Friends

As much as we might make fun of a bunch of ladies gossiping incessantly with each other, the truth is that they hold connection, collaboration and mutual support MUCH HIGHER in their value system than most of us.

That’s the secret. People who proactively connect, bond, share and listen to each other in a trusting setting tend to live longer and happier lives.

That’s why I drove 1600 miles to see my buddy John and my brother Gary in Maryland this week.

My value of having strong male bonds is why I’m:

  • Flying to Utah for a golf retreat in September.
  • Having a 3rd Ranch Retreat in October in Colorado.
  • Flying to North Carolina in November for a casual rendezvous with 10 other guys from our Men’s Roundtable Community.
  • Going back to Mexico in February for our Mojo Mastery Retreat.

Great men NEED other great men to keep them sharp and to keep them healthy.

We laugh, challenge, encourage and love each other like brothers.

Honestly, this is why we often spend hours talking with men at no charge on Zoom to understand their situations and to help them get what they really want. These are called “Discovery Calls” for lack of a better term.

A great, attractive husband is a prized member of his pack. His feelings of isolation and loneliness get filled by being with his pack. Discover what connection, support, and security feel like when you reach out to other amazing men.
