I read an article in the paper today discussing traits that constituted a "Real" man. Some of the qualities listed by the author were dead on, and then there were others that were just plain ridiculous. I thought it would be fun to share with you bloggies! Here are just ten traits that the author listed . What do you think? What would you add?
10 MANLY TRAITS
What (else) makes a man a real man?
1 A man makes decisions and lives with the consequences.
2 A man would rather die than break his word.
3 A man carries cash.
4 A man isn't satisfied with his papa's money. He spits on Lady Luck and decides his own destiny.
5. A man avoids visible brands on his clothes.
6 A man never says something to someone online that he wouldn't say to the person's face.
7 A man doesn't break up on the phone, via text or on Facebook.
8 A man looks out for children. He makes them stand behind him.
9 A man is comfortable being alone.
10 A man does not know everything. He doesn't try. He likes what other men know.
