Acting Like a Man

by Tom

I don't consider myself a Don Juan. I don't have the perfect thing to say, I'm not always funny, but I do have one quality that most men don't possess anymore: I act like a man.

I realize that this topic has been discussed and addressed over and over again in the form of challenge, confidence, self control, etc. However, there is more to it than that, and I think a lot of guys don't truly understand what it means to be a man.

Being a man, first and foremost, is doing what you want, and standing by what you do.

Before I continue, let me preface this by saying that I don't consider myself an attractive man. Maybe at best a 5 on the looks scale if you were to look at a picture of me. Yet I have a gorgeous woman who is head over heels in love with me, and others who want my attention and are just as good looking. How is this possible?

Yes, I'm confident in what I do -- but lots of guys are. The main thing is that when these girls are around me, they know that I am in charge. If we're in their car, I will drive. If we're at a restaurant, I will ask them what they want, and then order for them. I am not lead around, nor am I pushed around, because I am the man, and whatever girl I am with is WITH ME, not the other way around.

Being a man doesn't just include social interactions, but how I dress and who I associate myself with. For example, I dress according to what I want to wear, not what may or may not be fashionable. I generally wear jeans from Walmart, a pair of Adidas, and a t-shirt. My clothes fit who I am, not the other way around -- just like my car does, and everything else that attributes to my style.

Most importantly is how I treat the woman I am with. I am positive, I am a gentleman, but I never allow her to be the dominant one. If she gets mad at me (assuming it's without much warrant), I will get madder. You would be surprised how well that works when you turn it around on them. If she makes a decision, if I feel she's trying to lead I will choose something else, even if I would have made the same decision had she not said anything.

The fact is, in a world of metrosexuals, feminism, and political correctness, women are thirsty for a man who will act like he was born to act: like a man. If you have the guts to do it, there will always be women out there who want what no other men are providing.
