A real man :
Doesnt need local anathestic at the dentists.
Knows when its time for sex, and knows when its time to eat

THIS should be the face of armani..

The Big Lebowski: What makes a man, Mr. Lebowski?
The Dude: Dude.
The Big Lebowski: Huh?
The Dude: Uhh--I don't know sir.

I believe, the picture is of an actor portraying 'Little John', it definately isn't the very lovely Robbie Coltrane.

What is a real man? It depends on your point of reference and where you are standing.

To me, a real man is honest...stands by his word. When he is wong, he admits to it. When he is right, he doesn't back down.

A real man helps people when they are down... he may patiently wait for the guy in a wheel chair to go through the door, but will help when he can't.

He will put down an animal when it is sick, and cry when he does because it was a valued family member...say a dog or a horse.

A real man is not intimidated by a woman that is smarter than he... in fact she kinda' turns him on. Nothing makes me like a woman better than knowing she can set up her own fence, or mount a gate.

A real man can actually hunt or grow his own food, prep it, and then cook it.Of course, if you live in town... he probably wouldn't... he would know how to use the subway and the best places for a cheap, good meal.

A real man respects a woman... he would never hit her, but a little love spank on the butt makes everybody happy. And after 10 years of marriage, he still opens her car door.

Looks are all ideal. A beard no more makes a man than a cowboy hat makes a cowboy...although I have both... and yes, I can ride a horse.... more importantly, I can scoop his poop.

A real man loves children and animals... nuff said.

A real man has ideals, faith in something...God, man, universe... but something that in his darkest hour can give him hope. It also gives him moral guidance, a sense of right and wrong. You've gotta know what you believe in and be able to express it with conviction.

A real man is a leader, at least at some level. He is able to make decisions, have courage, and able to inspire others or set the example.

A real man has heroes... Heroes give us an example of the best in us, a personification of all of the above.

The really hard part is finding out what kind of man a woman is looking for?

Just a thought if I made a thread saying what makes a real woman and posted a chick in a bikini would it get deleted?

Actually, my post did come off like a personal ad, LoL

It was meant to be taken a different way... full of stereotypes sprinkled with a bit of humor.

A real man can be tough when he has to, but isn't afraid to show emotion.

All women define "real men" the same way: they make them real hot.

And confidence, confidence and confidence. There are many ways it can be demonstrated, but there are no substitutes.

Men and women are so different, and while men govern the physical realm, women govern its corresponding emotional realm. A woman would have no more faith in a man who refused to step between her and physical danger than a man would have in a woman who laughed at his tears. Both would be seen as a betrayal.

It has nothing to do with outward appearance or attire. I'm still a huge fan of the Kipling ideal, and in fact gave it to my son on a plaque on his 12th birthday.


IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

Still gives me goosebumps when I read it.

if we are goint to quote literary geniuses - i shall see your kipling and raise you Heinlein :

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, con a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyse a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

By that definition, I have fully and completely earned the title of 'Real Man'. Awesome. And no penis necessary. Those Freemasons
even now, stuck in a time warp.

Good one, and probably more pragmatic. Just doesn't generate the same emotional response from me, though. It may be my favorite poem of all time. When I read it, in my head I hear it in my dad's voice.

Only his version had an expletive or two thrown in for poetic license.

Now where were we, ah yeh

A real man lets a woman know her place is in the kitchen, he doesnt hide behind all that political correctness nonsense.
A real man doesnt sue companies, instead he burns their building down.
A real man spends his time roaming the countryside hunting for food. None of all that tescos nancy boy stuff!
A real man doesnt use all that soft toilet paper, he uses leaves and hay to do the business.

You see this is the problem with humanity - in this modern age of technology, humanity is falling away from its roots, theres very few real men out there these days.

ah ha. so a dirty stinky controlling idiot criminal is a real man?

no thanks. i shall stick with upstanding moral clean men who love technology and showers and the law....treat woman with respect (none of this controlling BS)....uses TP
rather than leaves
and must have great sense of humour (little twisted is best)....and very whitty and smart

funny thread and OP this one is...though it was in jokes for a min there........

Lol any man that would tell me to "get in the kitchen" would end up in the blender

A real man to me is a man that is not afraid to cry, love and appreciate life, And a man who fights for what he believes in, accepts your faults and loves you with his whole heart anyway, A real man is thankful that every day he gets a chance to be a better person, is connected with who he is and what he has, and loves unconditionally so he can be loved unconditionally

And if you bump in to him can you pass him my number
