What makes a Man Cool?

Updated on February 24, 2013

Am I Cool?

Oh yes, no doubt about it. I wear trendy shoes, hip clothes, talk the current slang, and where ever I go, I make heads turn. Cool, huh!

So, what does Cool actually mean?

Does cool mean being in the trend, being in the era, acting like the younger generation?

What REALLY makes a person cool?

Is it the above or is there something deeper to it?

A person's attitude makes one stylish. How a person reacts in happiness and sorrow gets him a score of how cool he is. His caring for others, his connectivity with others, his self belief and confidence in any situation mark the person's personality.

Clothes, shoes are all temporary things. Fashion comes and goes, for how long can a man sustain to all the changes happening in the fashion industry. His pocket will not allow him to be an ardent follower, because with a wink of an eye, technology and fashion changes. One who consumes all the latest gadgets and fashionable clothes is not considered trendy. But, a person whose personality ignites a room full of fashionable people is considered fashionable. This person will light up a dark room, and he will be the coolest person around even if he is wearing such outdated clothes according to the fashion police.

Ponder upon the below...

Now, next time when you have a party to go to and your wardrobe is outdated. Think again, how can I steal the thunder of the party? No, worries. You can upgrade yourself by wearing a bright smile, a caring attitude, and be an honest person with self awareness. This can make you look more appealing than people with the latest clothesline. As the saying goes, that the beauty lies deep, and it's not just superficial. We should have that kind of perspective towards life. Always on the go with confidence, perkiness, self-awareness, honest and good by the heart. That will ALWAYS make us on the Go with what ever situation we are in and don't have to open our wardrobe to check out for fab outerwear since each move of ours will be as COOL as an ice-cream and make us as popular as ever!

      So true Ruchira!! Being "cool" is so much more than the external/garments... its about keepin' it real, getting on with all kinds of people and having a great positive attitude :)

      Yes, Ashantina. It is the attitude that matters and not the branded clothing et. al.

      thank you so much for stopping by with your precious comment...appreciate it :)

      ..well your hubs are cool because you ask provocative questions and make your readers think and feel - and to me that's a pretty cool equation.

      Thank you Epi and apologize for the late reply.

      I just feel that all the incidents we experience are so related to the life we live/lead and thus, like to share it with my community as and when I become aware of it :)

      Cool is for sure a way a person acts rather than they way they look. I think someone is cool who can carry his or her self in a respectful, calm, kind manner :) Excellent reminder that material possessions do not make us who we are!

      I think being cool is all about how you are than what you present yourself as. Otherwise, bullies would have stayed cool after high school. Great hub!

      Being "cool" is how you feel inside, not what you look like on the outside. Thanks for sharing this hub :).

      Your Hub Friend,

      Coolness comes from within. It's like the bearing of ourselves that makes it cool. Great hub!

      I agree Rajan. A person who is true to himself and does not posses a dual personality can shine even in darkness :)
