What Is A Real Man?Page 1 of 1    
What traits/attributes separate a real man from a boy? I have heard women say "where are the real men at?". So I figured this place would be a good to get every women's opinion on this matter from different age groups.

What separates a man from a boy? Maturity.

Taking responsibility for your actions, instead of blaming others.
Good judgment, organization, planning and strategizing.
Helping and caring for other people, instead of expecting to be babied.

^ Naw...we got tired of Bigfoot. He couldn't hold his drink. Kept complaining about Mrs. Bigfoot. Said she wasn't a real Mrs. Bigfoot. Left him passed out somewhere in the woods. Took the beer elsewhere.

Literatehiker...naw, I'd define it by values in some way also.

Well, I know the mirror at my place shows a stunner every morning when I look at it. And no, ya can't get a copy of him. His Mommy and Daddy threw away the mold after he was born.

They were scared.

Very,very scared.
