    Masked Man 35/100: The Masked Bartender

    Masked Man 35/100: The Masked Bartender

    Hello and welcome back to the Miss Amanda Chen Show. We’re now in Season 2 of the 100 Masked Men series, where I anonymously interview different men from all around the world about gender roles, expectations from society and how that affects our self worth.

    This month we are taking a special focus on men's mental health, sponsored by Tethr, The world’s first online, peer-to-peer support community connecting men for open and honest conversations about life.

    It's been a year since the pandemic hit and crashed the hospitality industry. Masked Man #35 is the Masked Bartender. In this episode we talk about how life has changed since then, and the judgment that comes along with drinking. Does everyone that is 'doing well' have to be sober too? Or can we be ok and also have a beer? I hope you enjoy the show.

    Are we romanticizing the drama with mental health issues? I thought this was an interesting perspective, on the quote unquote 'normal guys' that seem to be doing okay. But nonetheless went through their own shit to be in a secure place today. This reminded me that not all of us have to speak out in order to normalize mental health.

    Make sure to subscribe and if you’d like to be on the show or know of someone with a unique perspective, slide into my DMs at @missamandachen on Instagram and see you next Wednesday with more episodes of 100 Masked Men.

    Masked Man 34/100: The Honest Man

    Masked Man 34/100: The Honest Man

    Hello and welcome back to the Miss Amanda Chen Show. We’re now in Season 2 of the 100 Masked Men series, where I anonymously interview different men from all around the world about gender roles, expectations from society and how that affects our self worth.

    This month we are taking a special focus on men's mental health, sponsored by Tethr, The world’s first online, peer-to-peer support community connecting men for open and honest conversations about life.

    Masked Man #34 is the Honest Man. You might even call him too honest, he's an open book, completely transparent to everyone in his life, especially his parents. He shares his story on wearing many masks to conceal his honesty after learning very quickly that a lot of people just don't want to hear the truth. Let's get into it. I hope you enjoy the show.

    What a refreshing interview with a complete stranger. It's been very interesting seeing the difference from one conversation with the next. Would you be nervous having to talk about this topic instead of the conventional hey, what do you do?

    To be honest it has been a bit of a challenge finding men in the UK that are open to being on the show. So if you are someone from that side of the pod with a unique story to tell, slide into my DMs at @missamandachen on Instagram and make sure to subscribe to the show. I'll see you next Wednesday with more episodes of 100 Masked Men.

    Masked Man 33/100: The Masculine Man

    Masked Man 33/100: The Masculine Man

    Hello and welcome back to the Miss Amanda Chen Show. We’re now in Season 2 of the 100 Masked Men series, where I anonymously interview different men from all walks of life about what masculinity means to them, gender expectations and how that affects how they interact with women.

    This month we are taking a special focus on men's mental health, sponsored by Tethr, the world’s first online, peer-to-peer support community connecting men for open and honest conversations about life.

    Masked Man #33 is the Masculine Man. He shares his transition from very rigid masculine views to finding balance with feminine energy. From past girlfriends, to watching himself on screen, he had to swallow his pride and ego, and seek help through therapy. I am so grateful to have this vulnerable conversation available for you to listen to today. I hope you enjoy the show.

    Have your views about therapy changed since listening to this episode? I think the biggest takeaway from this chat was to realize that society changes all the time, but our way of thinking stays the same. And this is where the conflict comes.

    Understanding Your Relationship With Boundaries

    Understanding Your Relationship With Boundaries

    Hello and welcome back to another episode of the miss Amanda Chen show. This week I interviewed two anonymous men for the 100 Masked Men Series, and its really interesting just reflecting off your own interviews and seeing how you react to complete strangers, people I haven’t established a safe space with yet, and what resulted from that was what you could perceive as the confident Amanda with strong opinions. But now I’m taking the time to think about exactly WHY I reacted the way I did.

    One thing I learned from the interviews this week is the idea of setting boundaries for the sake of others. Thinking you’re doing this for the betterment of others, to tell yourself that you are a good person, a man of integrity, who respects others.

    Boundaries need to be personal, they have to be a reflection of your core values and beliefs. You can’t enforce boundaries on another person because it isn’t about them.

    If you establish a positive relationship with boundaries that is an expression of your core values and beliefs, you will be more inclined to communicate that to everyone you encounter. It won’t be a defensive conversation anymore, but a welcoming one.

    Make sure to subscribe to the show and I’ll see you next Wednesday with more episodes of the 100 Masked Men.

    Masked Man 32/100: The Five Date Guy

    Masked Man 32/100: The Five Date Guy

    Hello and welcome back to the Miss Amanda Chen Show. We’re now in Season 2 of the 100 Masked Men series, where I anonymously interview different men from all around the world about gender roles, expectations from society and how that affects our self worth.

    Lately I’ve been really curious about how men think, specifically about what they think about women. And the confusion that comes along in miscommunication. My thought is that we tend to be indirect in expressing ourselves with matters of the heart.

    Masked Man #32 is the Five Date Guy. A very straight-laced, militant man who works a lot and does his best to give time, respect and energy to the women he engages in, he shares his 5 date rule with me. The idea is to learn more about each other over 5 dates before having sex. My question is, why is it all about the lead up to sex?

    And how much can you learn about someone you're romantically involved in without sex? Let's get into it. I hope you enjoy the show.

    I think these rules we place on dating say a lot more about the person putting in the rules than the person being tested. Although it doesn't feel that way. I've currently got a 3 month no sex rule with zero prospects on that front, but it's more for myself to give us the time to develop intimacy. Something I haven't spent nearly enough tie practicing. What are some rules you're implementing in your dating game today?

    Masked Man 31/100: The Guy Card

    Masked Man 31/100: The Guy Card

    Hello and welcome back to the Miss Amanda Chen Show. We’re now in Season 2 of the 100 Masked Men series, where I anonymously interview different men from all walks of life about what masculinity means to them, gender expectations and how that affects how they interact with women.

    This week I spoke with a man who works in construction, what we'd consider one of the breeding grounds of toxic masculinity.

    Masked Man #31 is the Guy Card. This concept comes out from working in a space dominated by traditionally masculine men in physical labour. Although there may be differences in ethnicity, status or otherwise, at least they share the guy card.

    What I found the most interesting is how diplomatic guys can be about men acting inappropriately toward women. Like how do you keep it light, keep it friendly, yet also say what is and isn't okay? And the request for women to be more gentle and patient with them as they adjust with the change in power. I don't know man, there's just a bit too many requests for women in my opinion. Let's get into it. I hope you enjoy the show.

    The Guy Card concept really makes me question, can I, as a woman, make an impact at all among men? Or can I only rely on other men to pave the way? And if not, can women be more patient with men as they continue to rise in their power? I don't know the answer, but I know that if we don't change anything, nothing's going to get better.
