2018 The Year when Men Vanish

Published

on

Where Did real men go

Did the definition of man changed by the year 2018? What do you say?

I asked my followers on Facebook “most of them are males”,   a simple innocent question: where did men go in 2018? Yes, as you guessed, they washed me with hilarious comments like : “Where did women go? Egyptian men are great and rocking , women from all over the world go crazy for Egyptian men.” etc.

I was only asking about Real men!  You know, the caring, hardworking  gentlemen. The ones who say something and actually do it , then, they bear the consequences.

Do qualities like being honestrespectful, reaching out for the woman, and protecting her vanish?

I’m done with all ” independent woman” thing. I know it for sure, if I have to pay for a guy’s food or drink , something happens. He cannot stand for the title “Man” anymore. Maybe once in a while, in special occasion like his birthday, you can pay the bill. Worst case, if he is going through sudden financial crisis and you have been together for more than three years. But when the situation is like you are taking care of all money issues, or worse, if he forces you to pay his bills, then this is no man. Am I exaggerating?!

Where did this man go? The type of a man that will support you to achieve your own personal goals, not his. He will not interfere in your choices. He will not force you to quit the career you want for any stupid reasons. Moreover, he will never push to take another career just because he knows what’s best for you. Only to make sure that you’re working in a “safe” environment – from his point of view of course- or that you will never be more important than him !

” 3annek enty ya Hanem “

Where did this man go? The one who will never let you change car tires , carry your heavy boxes or let you supervise the workers at your house when painting or redecorating the place. This guy who will never meet up with his friends for play station and leave you watching the plumber fixing your sink. This real partner who will join you to the gynecologist appointment rather than watching football match .

” Ghanni Ya Waheed”

Where did this man go? The man who will TALK to you, listen to you. Is there any men left who can still speak after the second date? Someone you can trust to share your darkest secrets with, yet you know he shall never use them against you. A man who keeps his word, does this sentence ring a bell? Does it exist? “A man who keeps his word.”?  !

Me and you, female and male, we can be friends but we don’t have to kick each other’s A**.

I can support when you’re in need. But don’t force me to be your ATM machine.

I am a strong female, but I don’t have to bare your insults, or any other form of verbal or physical abuse.

I am an independent mind but I yearn for your manly love

We’re equal in giving and taking but each of us has a role. Please take your role as a man , will you? .

Ashraf Hamdi’s ‘A Voice Note’ Returns With Another Heart-warming Story

Published

on

By

Director/ Writer Ashraf Hamdi strikes again with the release of his latest VN14: “Only If Time Was..” and after one year of fans waiting around for another voice note, Hamdi didn’t disappoint and delivered an outstanding piece different than the others but still holds the same magic that we all fell for.

The Voice Note tells once again a love story, one that started with a spark but ended tragically, leaving us all in awe. It’s a story that shows chemistry between two but when bad timing interferes and fate gets in the way, it ends differently than one would have expected.

The Voice Note is featuring the beautiful Aya AbdelHamid and Khaled El Zommor with the voice-overs done by Hamdi and Heidy Ahmed and as usual is written, directed, edited by Hamdi. What makes it even more personalized this time, is that the entire music of the episode was composed from scratch and is courtesy of Ashraf El Ziftawi.

That was Hamdi’s first collaboration with a musical composer and he worked along Ashraf El Ziftawi for 3 months and before that they spent a year composing music for other commercials and work.

 

The music wasn’t the only highlight of the short film, but also the song at the end that was exclusively written and recorded for it, making the Voice Note more intriguing and special. 

We spoke with Ashraf Hamdi regarding these collaborations and he told us how unusual it is for him to do such a thing but he loves collaborating with fresh, young talents and shedding the light on their work. 

For those who don’t know, the Voice Note series is the creation of the brilliant Ashraf Hamdi where love stories are told through a voice note. Every Voice Note holds a story and every story was based on a meaningful inspiration.

In his stories, you can find ‘love you didn’t love’ or an experience that you relate to, or maybe a completion of a love story that you didn’t have the chance to completely live.

When asked why the VN14 took so long, his answer was simply that ‘you need to be inspired,” and we are so glad he did. He also revealed that he likes everything in the project to be very personalized, even the cast, he needs to connect with them and love them in a way.

We hope Hamdi stays inspired so we can get to witness more of his magic!

It’s Time You Walk Away When…

Published

on

By

I hold my phone every other second, still, not a single word from him. I toss and I turn, not able to sleep, and I start to wonder, is he okay? What is he doing right now? Has he gone home safely? I’ll text and see. ‘No. Stop it. He’s fine not hearing from you.’ My overthinking begins to tell me.

Why is he okay not asking about me when I’m not? Well, maybe because this is my first sign that I should away.

1- They care less than you do

When your relationship starts getting fragile, it is important that the other person assures you that they have equal feelings. That you’re both in this together, and you will work it out, together. It should never be all on you, you shouldn’t be the only person making the effort. So stop being the quicker person to call, and stop worrying so much. Let them do the call, the texting, let them do the fixing. Because again, you’re in this together, or you’re out, you walk away.

2- They always make excuses not to meet

You want to meet up, go over things, discuss it like adults and come up with a plan, right? But it never happens, right? Because they always seem to find an excuse to get out of it, or they simply can’t do this same conversation again. They say they can’t do this fighting anymore, but when you’re fighting for your relationship, then it’s legitimate and if they can’t do it, they don’t deserve you.

3- They can’t be trusted

Relationships can lack several fundamentals, but one thing it should never lack, is trust. It is what relationships are built on, and once it is taken from the equation, the relationship falls. I’m not telling you to give up the second they do you wrong, but to earn your trust again, they should work hard for it, and this chance you are giving them, should never be taken for granted.

4- They are cold

The way they treat you is cold, the way they respond is cold, even the way they smile back at you is cold. This change in behavior can only be spotted by you, and when you start comparing their responses to the way it used to be, this is when you will get your answer.

Never allow yourself to be with someone, who just doesn’t seem to care anymore. Someone who’s keeping you, because they are being selfish, and not reasonable.

5- They exhibit an error in communication

Communication is a key to a healthy relationship, it’s important for the both of you to know that you’re standing on the same ground, that you both feel and want the same thing. It’s okay to experience some miscommunication, but what matters is for the both of you to admit having this issue; so you can work through it and get past it.

Try to allow the space for each of you to speak their minds, with no interruptions AT ALL. Listening is a key to understanding, and accepting that difference in your point of views, is another key.

I can never really tell you for sure that this is your cue to leave, because at the end, it’s not signs that you should follow, it is your intuition. So what does it tell you?
