Moody Men: How to Deal

We all have our moments, and sometimes the little things can set our mood into a tailspin.

Stereotypically speaking, women are thought of as the moody ones, but men can be moody too, and there's actually a name for it — irritable male syndrome. It's much less severe than depression or bipolar disorder, but the same roller coaster of emotions apply. One minute he's happy and loving life, and the next, he's sulking and not wanting to talk.
