Attention Ladies: Define “Real Man”Page 2 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
Since this is the humor thread....


When I say I want a real man (which, actually, my profile doesn't say that) I mean that I don't want to have to wind you up every morning just to get you to go. Or worry about replacing your batteries, or having to find an extension chord for when we go out.

Seriously, I have no idea what a "real man" is supposed to be.

Wow- so that's what a "real man" is? Yeah I must be a lady boy then cuz that ain't me lol. I do what I do. I can fix stuff and get dirty, I can cuddle alot, I can do alot of the stuff, but changing at the snap of a finger isn't my strong suit. Maby that's why I been here for 5 years now on and off. LOL- it all makes perfect sense now! Holy cow- it's like god just reached down outta the clouds and smacked me in the back of the head! Ok, time for my asprin. I think I'll just stick to looking for a woman who can just be down with dealing with who I am instead.

I'm sorry, I didn't know that by me pretending to be a real man would cause such a crisis.

Well, I do have a cheche and bubus which can be confused with a superhero costume but it is actually the custom of my heritage(ok, coupled with Cuban and Calusa-Seminole,still majority Amazigh).......some call us Imazighen, others call us Tuareg.....I introduce to you....Real Men! ...of which I am 1.

Seminole and Imazighen are unconquerable.

Just sayin!

Lol- lynn- there are too many men answering it because women don't pay enough attention to them! I don't know how other guys are doing, but I feel like I'm talking to walls on this site. o.O

I do remember an evening when I met a guy who was funny, liked me for my personality, we had a great time socializing as well as in bed (met each others needs). I seem to remember saying something like, "ahhh a real man".........Isn't that what everyone wants?? ....I will never forget that evening.

I personally hope not. I hope and believe there are women who have a perception of needing and wanting much more than that. Desires and require a much broader spectrum in terms of their view of a "real man". Substance, is what make for healthy, functioning, lasting relationships as oppose to a good "evening" or even short term fling. I think a real woman wants a real man of demonstrated substance. You know, a man that demonstrates real respect in all areas, real care in all areas, real passion, real responsibility, real emotional/financial/spiritual/intellectual/relational maturity, real connections and demonstrates that over a period of time past and present. My idea of a real woman is one who not only demonstrates those things but also requires those things to be demonstrated by a man over a period of time past and present.


"a guy who was funny, liked me for my personality, we had a great time socializing as well as in bed"

I was easily that guy and much more at 16 if not long before. That bar isn't set very high. Just sayin!

Hmmm, along the lines of what I was thinking. Don't forget has to look like Brad Pitt, Channing Tatum, or David Beckham. Here's the real deal if that was true, none of us men would be on here trying to find someone. Chances are we'd already be married or sleeping with as many women as we could. Kept things in perspective and in the realm of reality. If you choose that path chance are you will continue the cycle over and over again.

Real Man..... I don't think there is such thing as a "REAL MAN" ha. But if I HAD to define real man it would just be a guy who is only himself and himself alone. Not afraid to be himself bla bla bla lol typical female definition. lol Oh well

Hmm . . . on behalf off all women, I believe when they say "I want a real man", they mean they want a 13 year old Jewish kid who successfully had their bar mitzvah. Which bothers me because you have to be 18 years old to meet anyone on POF . . . this is obviously a problem that needs addressing in "that"' female community looking for a "real" man.

Just be real, man. Then you'll be "Real Man".

Hahaha.

I'm a guy. I see myself as a man. Don't know if I'm real or not, I feel I am real.
Accepts responsibility for one's actions; accepts all parts of themselves, past or present, gifts and pitfalls; Is principled and takes a stance, yet knows how to compromise, and when to do so; Knows what they want in life, and actively engages to get there.

A "Real Man" is not too different from a "Real Woman".

Just be real, man.

Kind....sincere ...one who could work a long day and still have time to be Love and Love as well. Someone who has his feet well grounded and not try to change his partner into something she is. Not.

You know, it's somewhat sad when I read through some of these posts that the men have posted. They seem very bitter, untrusting and cold. We have all had relationships that didn't go the way we would have liked them to, however you put itbehind you and move on. If you aren't able to do this, your life won't ever be happy.

My version of a real man, is someone who is there fo me when I need him. My best friend, my confidant. If hes able to be those things, he's areal man!!

4SUSAN and Buckeye Bartender gave the PERFECT definitions of a "real" man:



A boy looks for a girl to sleep with,
a real man looks for a woman worth waking up to.

Those women dont realize how offensive it is to want a 'real man' until you message them asking if there are any 'good' women left

Hi,

All men are real.... I think what the women are trying to say is ....Please be real..... No need to lie... tell us the truth and be understanding.... try to talk things out ... be truthful with us and understanding and communication ....

- makes $50000 a year at least
- has a car
- has exciting hobbies
- is in great shape even if she isn't lol
- is a dare devil and responsible at the same time
- is spontaneous, he always accidentlly appeases her like Hugh Grant
- is a good listener like Dr Phil but never actually offers solutions just repeats their problem over and over in different words and cries with her about how hard done by she is.

lol, thank you Spartacus.

ALMOST nailed the description I figured.

2 proposed revisions:
The Dr. Phil good listener part. I'm am the King of that; I rule alone. o_O
(Certainly not making me feel more manly.)

Spartacus' list is uncanny to -THE BAR- expectations are set to. Imo.
