Are you a man or a mouse? Don’t know? Ask a woman, she’ll tell you. According to a wide variety of women, the following are the top 10 things they look for in a manly man:
There is a reason for this – no woman likes a man who has no confidence and, to be honest, you shouldn’t like you if you have none either.
That’s a good sense of humor to those who aren’t up with the lingo. If you have a sense of humor you’ll be seen as a manly man – just make sure it’s the right sense of humor!
If you smell, the ladies will walk, it’s as simple as that. Shower and use deodorant before you hit the town, gents; it will make a difference to how women see you.
The ladies like a man who works out, even if it’s only a little. It shows you care about yourself, about how you look. Swimming and running don’t cut it though; you need to be doing a bit of gym work or weights.
How you look goes a long way for a woman in determining how manly you are. Facial expression is important as is what you wear so smile and look happy with life.
Being respectful takes you a long way in the manly man stakes. Women like to be treated with respect not as objects. Try to learn some good old southern hospitality – opening doors, holding out a chair in a restaurant, things like that.
- Has Goals
If you want to be manly, make sure you have a direction in life. Have goals and stick to them, it will make the world of difference.
This one goes hand in hand with respect. Listening is a key skill for a manly man to learn and will get you a long way – it shows you care. Listening can save relationships and marriages and it can avoid all sorts of trouble.
- Has Hobbies
Got a hobby? Show it off. Women think men with hobbies are far more manly and attractive because it shows they have interests and don’t spend their life doing nothing. It also shows that you have independence – women don’t like clingy men, the same way men don’t like clingy women, and having a hobby shows you have your own life to lead as well as the one you lead with her.
Being sensitive doesn’t mean bawling during a sad movie but a certain amount of sensitivity goes an awful long way in the manly man stakes.
At the end of the day, masculinity really comes from within. It’s all about being yourself, being happy about who you are and where you are going in life. Confidence will get you a long way, even if you think you are a loser and be sure to listen, with both ears wide open, when a woman talks to you, show her respect and join me, the “renaissance man” in being at the top of the manly charts.Read More
