Forget fast cars and wild women. The need to survive the current recession has changed the way many younger men are living, with stability and security at work and home becoming top priorities, according to a new survey. It showed that men are putting a bigger emphasis on security in their jobs in a return to traditionalism, including smartening up their wardrobes, although they're continuing to embrace new technology at a fast pace.
"We have seen a clear move toward seeking more security in finances, relationships and the workplace," said James Bassil, editor in chief of the website AskMen.com, which conducted the poll. "It seems many have changed their habits dramatically in anticipation of losing their jobs, and are saving more money and seeking more stability than in the past," he added.
